The first time I walked into the marijuana dispensary, I talked to a pharmacist.
I told her why I was getting medical marijuana. I explained about the pain I had ever since I had my hip replacement. It had become chronic and although the pain was less than it was; it was still there and not going away soon. The doctor told me he could replace the bad joint, but he couldn’t cure the arthritis. I was hoping I would get rid of the pain, but that wasn’t happening. I talked to my doctor and asked what I could take that wasn’t narcotics or other drugs. He told me I could try CBD. If I used CBD, he said he wanted me to get it at the marijuana dispensary and not in a convenience store. I went to the marijuana dispensary about a week later, and I told the pharmacist what the doctor said. He gave me a product that was almost full of CBD with just 2%THC. He said the CBD was about as pure as you could get it, unless it was Hemp CBD, which wasn’t a true marijuana plant. I bought the CBD products, which although it was expensive, the pharmacist said it would help with the pain. That one CBD product lasted longer than what the other medication was, and in the long run, it was cheaper and better for me. I was grateful the doctor gave me all the information he could to make a decision that was right for me.
