One day I was my completely normal self and the next day I wasn’t.
- I woke up with some joint pain that I associated with maybe going to hard on a workout.
Within weeks, I could barely move around. It happened so quick and the doctor was a surprised as I was. He just couldn’t find a root cause and said it could be chronicle inflammation, whatever that is. He prescribed a bunch of meds including anti inflammatories and pain meds. They helped deal with symptoms but I wasn’t getting better. That’s when I went to get some medical marijuana information. I simply didn’t want to take the path of medicine on top of medicine only to deal with symptoms. Instead, I wanted to at least try a more natural approach. And medical cannabis was part of that approach. I also stopped eating all processed food. All processed sugar was cut out of my diet as was most red meat. It wasn’t easy because I love to eat. Yet, it really started to clean out my system. Then, using the cannabis flower products allowed me to manage my symptoms naturally. Not only did the cannabis products allow for pain and inflammation reduction, it helped me get more active. With medical marijuana, I was able to get into stretching, then yoga and my inflammation was greatly reduced. It’s been almost a year and I’m almost inflammation free. There are some days where I experience a bit of pain but it’s rare these days. And I have to attribute a great deal of my success to medical marijuana.
