Had I known that navigating our state’s medical marijuana regulations was so straightforward, I’d have done this earlier. I’ve known for some time that medical cannabis has provided relief and more to people with chronic pain like me. But I thought that figuring out how to get a medical marijuana card would be more trouble than it was worth. This was my thinking until I found that I was slipping further into a dependency on the pain meds the doctor was providing. Not only was I relying on the pain meds more, I was doing less of the physical stuff to help mitigate the chronic pain. So, with the help of a friend, I started the process to satisfy the medical marijuana regulations in our state. It was astonishing how easy it was to follow the directions and before I knew it, I had access to the cannabis dispensary. The legal weed store that I chose has some of the best, most intelligent staff according to a bit of research I did online. And it paid off as the staff at this cannabis dispensary was able to pinpoint the sort of cannabis flower product that would help me the most. There are different cannabis products more suited to relieving pain and inflammation. Once I started treating with medical cannabis, the results were fairly immediate. I now have a way to mitigate pain naturally and more. Medical marijuana is also helping me deal with stiffness and has motivated me to change to a totally healthy lifestyle. Life is so much better with medical marijuana treatments. Just wish I had done all of this sooner.
