I can’t tell you what a difference it makes to be able to manage my pain in a manner that actually works for me. Much of my pain is due to a car accident I had several years ago. That accident required a bunch of surgeries on my back. And prior to finding medical marijuana, I just didn’t have much hope of dealing with the results from my injury. Perhaps it’s true that once you have a back surgery, you’re in for many more. I don’t know for sure but that certainly seems to be commonplace. I still put all my efforts into rehabbing and having after surgery with all the physical therapy and endured all that pain. The doctor sort of told me that this may just be the way it is. That’s hard to come to terms with in reality. And the fact that I was on all that pain medication wasn’t helping. I could see how dependent I was getting even though I was trying so hard to be careful. I really didn’t want to become addicted to the pain meds. So I talked to my family doctor and got the process started for a medical marijuana card. That allowed me to access the cannabis dispensary in town. I really wasn’t so sure what I needed as I hadn’t done that much research on the cannabis products. Turns out, I didn’t need to do much research since I was in great hands of the local cannabis spot. Those people took care of me and provided me with the sort of cannabis products that have turned my life around. It’s so nice to be able to use a natural product like sativa and indica strains when it comes to managing my pain.
