I have to say that I’m just so thankful to finally be getting some relief and improvement for my inflammatory condition.
And I love the fact that my improvement comes thanks to access to a cannabis dispensary.
I’ve been to so many doctors and gotten a lot of different diagnosis for my situation. And that came with a lot of different medicines. There were times when I didn’t know which was worse, the side effects from the medications or the inflammation. There were plenty of doctors who told me I had fibromyalgia. And there were just as many doctors that told me there was no such thing as fibromyalgia. This sort of confusion was a great source of frustration for me. In fact, I’m convinced that being on the western medicine merry go round only made my symptoms worse. Once I decided to get off that merry go round, the obvious choice for me was medical marijuana. I had done some research on it after a friend brought me some cannabis information. And the more I learned about sativa and indica strains, the more convinced I was that this might be beneficial for me. So I dealt with all the different marijuana rules and got myself a medical marijuana card. I use both sativa and indica strains as part of my treatment. The indica strains really do help reduce inflammation and allow me to get the most range of motion during crucial exercise. But the sativa strains help me to remain positive, hopeful and maintain perspective. I may have to deal with this the rest of my life but I am sure thankful for the improvements that came with medical marijuana.
