Battling inflammatory condition with cannabis products

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.

Medical marijuana allows me more balance in my life

Depression comes in many forms.

For me, it’s more about dealing with being overwhelmed by life.

Being a very sensitive person is not something that I would have chosen to be. And it’s not as though I’m a wallflower or anything. I’m just really sensitive to stress, anxiety and being overwhelmed. This combination of elements sends me into a depression. But with the help I’m getting at the medical marijuana shop, I’m getting a whole lot better. For years, I have taken one antidepressant after another. And this continued for more than 2 decades. While I’m thankful to have had the meds, they were only moderately effective for me. Like they kept me off the edge but that’s about it. Plus, the longer I took those meds, the more I had to deal with the side effects. So, I started to look for an alternative and a natural alternative. This led me to finding some medical marijuana facts. The medical marijuana information I found was really eye opening. The medical marijuana benefits for people suffering from depression were well documented. My therapist and doctor were on board so, I went for it. While I was waiting to get through the cannabis regulations, I started to wean off the meds. Then, it was to the medical marijuana shop to get the cannabis products. These people were so kind and so helpful. They got me the type of cannabis products that have shown to be the most productive for depression. It’s been more than 4 months since I started medical marijuana. My progress is significant and I’m feeling better than I ever did on the other meds.

Found a way to manage restless leg syndrome with medical marijuana

I remember a Seinfeld episode where one of the characters wouldn’t sleep over at his girlfriend’s house.

  • The reason was because she had the Jimmy Legs.

I though this was such a hoot until I developed restless leg syndrome. That’s when all the laughing stopped. But I’m pleased to report that there is laughter once again now that I’m treating my condition with medical cannabis. If it hadn’t been for a sort of random event, I don’t know that I would have ever figured out how to get a medical marijuana card. What happened was that I went to the wrong place at the learning annex. I was looking for a relaxation workshop and walked into a cannabis event. And I stayed because what I was hearing was amazing. I had no idea of all the medical marijuana benefits over a broad spectrum of conditions. It was this one cannabis event that changed it all for me. I got through the cannabis regulations and got my medical marijuana card. By this point, I was barely sleeping more than an hour or two without being awakened by my legs jerking around. It was awful and I was robbed of any energy to live my life. Such a simple thing like restless leg syndrome was ruining my life. So after about 2 months of using cannabis products, I’m almost sleeping through the night now. It’s just remarkable how quickly and effectively the medical marijuana has worked for me. I’m a big proponent of medical cannabis now and I don’t hesitate to discuss it with people who are suffering. Medical marijuana benefits are real and it’s so wonderful.

Searching for relief from arthritis led me to medical marijuana

I imagine that my grandson gets such a kick out of his grandma using cannabis products.

But that’s okay. I would use just about anything to get some of my life back that was taken from me by arthritis. Being stuck inside my home and immobile was not how I wanted my life to play out to the end. And all the meds were just sort of working and then sort of not. It was so hit and miss. Yet, I have to say that I was part of the problem as well. I’ve never been into being fit and healthy. Instead, I have overeaten and refused exercise. This has a lot to do with the worsening of my arthritis pain. So I decided to do something about it. After watching a program with some fantastic medical marijuana information, I got to thinking. If I could figure out how to get a medical marijuana card, I could also figure out how to live more healthy. It was sort of a package deal. My son lives nearby and he was sort of floored when I told him of my plan. But he helped me get to the medical marijuana shop and helped me understand what I was doing. I like the cannabis gummies since I’ve never been a big fan of smoking anything. The medical marijuana has done just what I was hoping it would do. It’s been a great pain manager as well as helping me with stiffness as I have started stretching and light walking. The change is remarkable and I am just so grateful to have access to medical marijuana. The future is not grim any longer. In fact, I’m excited for this chapter of my life.

medical uses for cannabis

I wanted to get a medical cannabis card

I talked to my mom about applying for medical cannabis when I was seventeen years old. I suffered with epilepsy for ten years, even though I was taking a ton of medications that were supposed to help. I read countless articles and papers on medical marijuana and the effect it has on lowering the occurrence of seizures. When I presented the information to my mom, she didn’t want to listen. She told me that she wasn’t going to send me spiraling down a path that leads to a life on drugs. She didn’t let me mention medical cannabis again without giving me an hour lecture on the dangers of drug use in today’s society. As soon as I turned eighteen, I moved out of the house. My grandmother offered me a place to stay. She was my Dad’s mother and my mom absolutely hated her. When my mom found out that I was moving to her house, she literally went crazy and had to spend the weekend in the hospital. I talked to a medical cannabis doctor a few weeks later. The doctor agreed that I qualified and he was very impressed with the research I performed and the knowledge I had on the effects it might have on my body and my mind. He gave me a prescription for a low dose medical marijuana product. He told me to try it a few times and keep track of the effects. I kept a journal for a month and I didn’t suffer any seizures or headaches for the first time in years. It’s been three years since I started using cannabis to help my seizures and my mom still doesn’t think it should be legalized.

The medical cannabis card went to my mom’s address

She never asked about the envelope, and I’m not sure what she thought was inside

After I turned 18 and moved out of my parents house, I decided to go to the doctor so I could obtain a medical marijuana card. I didn’t know if I would be approved, but the doctor thought medical marijuana would be able to help with the chronic pain from my Crohn’s disease.The doctor gave me a prescription and I filled out all of the paperwork online. I had to pay fees to the doctor and fees to the state. The card was supposed to arrive in the mail 10 days later. I anxiously waited for the car to arrive, because I wanted to visit a medical cannabis dispensary. On the 12th business day, I just started to call the health department to find out when my medical cannabis card would arrive. That’s when I found out that they sent the envelope to my mom’s address.I was horrified when I heard the news. I didn’t tell my mom that I was planning to apply for medical cannabis and I knew she was going to have a bunch of things to say if she opened that envelope. Thankfully, she called me a couple of days later to tell me that I had some mail at her house. She thought something might be important, since it was from the health department. She never asked about the envelope, and I’m not sure what she thought was inside. I would prefer if she never mentions the envelope for the rest of my life. I don’t want my mom to know about the card until I am ready to share.

Medical weed gave me an appetite for the first time in months

For the first time in months, I went out for dinner with my friends and ate pizza with pepperoni, sausage, and extra black olives. That was always my favorite way to eat pizza, but I stopped eating my favorite foods when I got sick. It was too hard to keep anything in my stomach. I was constantly throwing up from the treatments and the medication. During one of my doctor visits, I sat in the waiting room next to a really nice lady. We talked about crafting, needlepoint, and the good old days. When I mentioned my overwhelming lack of appetite, she mentioned medical weed to me. At the time, I was a little shocked. The lady didn’t look like a pot smoker, but she assured me that pot was the reason for her good health and positive attitude. She told me to ask the doctor to write me a medical prescription for marijuana. I was nervous to talk to the doctor, but the lady in the lobby made it sound easy and simple. When the doctor asked me about the symptoms, I mentioned the increased lack of appetite. I asked the doctor if he thought medical marijuana would help. The doctor was surprised that I didn’t ask until now and he happily discussed the plant with me. Before I left the office, I had a prescription for THC capsules. The pharmacy filled the script in thirty minutes. I take two capsules in the morning with a glass of water. After about an hour, I usually begin to feel the effect. Weed improves my appetite and my overall mood.

I grow and harvest two times each year

As a medical marijuana patient, I can grow and harvest up to 8 plants at one time.

There is absolutely no reason to have eight plants at one time, unless you are cultivating for profit.

It takes a lot of time and energy to care for the plants. I have two marijuana plants going in the spring and two marijuana plants growing in the fall. I grow and harvest 2 times each year and each harvest will last about six months. I currently have a wedding cake hybrid plant and a sour diesel plant. Each one of these strains can yield up to a pound of buds every time they bloom. Last spring, I had a wedding cake clone and it produced 1.7 lbs of marijuana. I had so much green that I decided to try making my own concentrate. It takes an incredibly large amount of marijuana to make a small amount of concentrate. About seven or eight grams of flower will only make one gram of concentrate. That is one of the biggest reasons why it is so expensive in dispensary shops. The first time I tried making shatter, I didn’t have very good results. The second time I tried, I used a different method and had much better results. I’m certainly looking forward to trying that method on the next bath. I’m not sure I will have the same yield from this wedding cake plant that is growing right now, but I look forward to making wax and shatter after the harvest has dried and cured.
