I suffer from chronic pain in my right shoulder.
For many years, certain movements in my shoulder will trigger a swollen pain sensation that starts in my shoulder, and can sometimes slowly creep into my back and neck.
I have tried many different remedies for my pain, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aleve sometimes help a little bit, but I still feel residual pain. Prescription painkillers always tend to make me sick, and the risk of addiction isn’t worth it to me. I have also tried acupuncture, and I have seen a chiropractor, but none of these methods have been a sustainable cure to my chronic pain. A few weeks ago, however, I walked into a local cannabis dispensary, because several of my friends have told me how wonderfully cannabis edibles forked for their pain. I walked into the cannabis dispensary, and discussed my symptoms with the budtender. He assured me that he wasn’t a doctor, but he gave me the best advice he could based on his knowledge and training. I decided to buy some cannabis infused gummies, as the dosage is easy to manage. I went home, and took two gummies without any additional medication. After a few hours, I realized that I was completely pain free, I thought maybe it was a coincidence, and that I was just lucky to be having a pain free day, so the next day I took two more gummies, and I was still without pain. It has been three weeks of me taking cannabis gummies, and I have not had any pain in my shoulder.
