Discovering medical marijuana was another part of the puzzle along with diet change and improved exercise
When you live with pain, I guess it shows at times. That’s actually how I got turned onto medical marijuana. I’ve been dealing with back and some other joint pain. And apparently, not dealing with it all that discreetly. A colleague finally came into my office to have a bit of a conversation about what I was doing about it. She told me that she had seen me wincing and catching my breath sometimes when I had to bend over or just sit down at times. It’s such a blessing that this colleague new about the medical marijuana benefits when it comes to pain management. I’d been to the doctor. Or I should say to lots of doctors. And the only thing I was going to get was addicted to pain meds. So I had to find a different avenue. That’s why I feel like I was actually guided to that cannabis dispensary event. Literally, I turned a corner, saw a tent and pulled in. This legal cannabis store was not somewhere I had ever been. While medical marijuana had been in the state for a few years, I had no idea about the medical marijuana benefits for managing chronic pain. But I learned so many medical marijuana facts during that cannabis dispensary event. Plus, I love the fact that it’s not habit forming or something I have to lean on just to function. No, the cannabis flower products I use work in concert with a whole way of life. Discovering medical marijuana was another part of the puzzle along with diet change and improved exercise. It’s been a heck of a ride so far to go from dreading having to stand up to going for a walk on the beach. Medical cannabis has given me back a measure of mobility and comfort that I wasn’t sure was possible.
