When my state initially legalized medicinal cannabis, I went right out and got my MMJ card.
I scheduled the doctor’s visit and got the recommendation.
I filled out the necessary paperwork and paid the fees. It was such a relief when I was finally allowed to shop at the dispensary. I suffer from severe pain in my shoulders, back and hips due to a motorcycle accident several years ago. After multiple surgeries and tons of physical therapy, I found it difficult to get back to my regular life. The stiffness of my joints, inflammation of my muscles and general discomfort made most of my favorite activities impossible. I couldn’t sleep soundly at night, had trouble getting up in the morning and missed a lot of work. Going up and down stairs, driving, sitting at the computer, lifting anything slightly heavy, bending down and reaching up were all really hard for me. Having access to cannabis was such an improvement. I’m able to treat my symptoms without worrying about adverse side-effects. I shop a combination of CBD-dominant and THC-dominant products. Because CBD is non-psychoactive, I can consume CBD tinctures, edibles and vapes without impairing motor skills or judgment. I also rely heavily on cannabis-infused topicals for localized relief. In the evenings and on weekends, I introduce higher THC potency into my treatment. I typically shop concentrates that I can vape or dab. I’ve found that cannabis is much less expensive than pharmaceuticals. I’m also able to easily adjust dosage to maximize benefits. Because of access to medical marijuana, I have hope of my life getting back to normal.
