Isn’t it ironic that our back concerns actually are related to an old football injury.
Just saying that out loud seems so trite and hackneyed.
But it’s the even-handed truth. And before I discovered medical marijuana, my old football injury was taking a real toll on our life. The injury itself wasn’t that terrible when it occurred. It’s not as if I had to go to the hospital or anything such as that. But all of us knew much less about how the body healed back then and I was cleared to get right back to full impact. Of course, that only exacerbated the concern and set the groundwork for our back to be a chronic pain situation. I dealt with it as I needed to with pain medication during our early adult years. But once I hit forty, I was in a situation where I could hardly get up some days to go to work. And adding more pain pills wasn’t going to help myself and others get through our day coherently. This is when I took the sage advice of a neighbor and started looking into medical marijuana benefits as it related to chronic back pain. I started studying some medical marijuana information and was pretty shocked by what it revealed. I had no plan that cannabis products have been used for 1000s of years to manage all kinds of odd maladies. Once I started treating with cannabis flowers, it didn’t take long at all before I got more range of motion with our back. And this allowed myself and others to do more exercise, which I needed to strengthen my muscles. For sure cannabis products have made a tremendous difference in our lives.
