When my mother started using medical marijuana edibles to treat her migraine headaches, my dad was not satisfied. He thought that she should continue to use the medications that were being prescribed to her by her doctor and wanted her to forget about looking for alternative treatments. My mom is very stubborn though so she was not cooperative with that plan at all. She was having migraine headaches at least twice a week, and it was actually affecting her quality of life. Unfortunately, the medication that the doctors had prescribed for her had some nasty side effects so she just couldn’t sit the thoughts of having to take those drugs for a prolonged period of time. After weeks of research plus asking questions, she finally decided that she was going to try using medical marijuana edibles instead of the prescription drugs. She mainly wanted to get rid of the side effects she was experiencing, but my dad thought that she wanted to go back to her teenage years plus try to get high. When she explained to him that certain types of marijuana especially the medicinal kind and the cannabis oil are not the same thing that make you get high, but only work for relaxation plus pain management, he was a little bit more receptive to the idea of her using it for her migraines. She was super irritated with my dad for thinking that she just wanted to get high but she told him that she was going to use the edible marijuana to treat her migraine headaches whether he was okay with it or not. The funny thing was that when my dad saw how well it worked for my mom’s migraines, he decided to try it too to treat his neck pain.
