When my mom started using medical marijuana edibles to treat her migraine headaches, my dad was not pleased. He thought that she should continue to use the medications that were being prescribed to her by her pain management doctor and forget about looking for alternative treatments, but my mom was not cooperative with that plan at all. She was having migraine headaches at least twice a week, and it was really affecting her quality of life. Unfortunately, the medication that the doctors had prescribed for her had some nasty side effects and she just couldn’t stand the thoughts of having to take those drugs for a prolonged period of time. After months of research and 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 and try to get high. When she explained to him that certain types of marijuana (the medicinal kind, the edible medical marijuana kind and the cannabis oil) are not the same thing that make you get high, but only work for relaxation and pain management, he was more receptive to the idea of her using it for her migraines. She was super annoyed with my dad for thinking that she just wanted to get high and she told him that she was going to use the edible marijuana to treat her migraine headaches whether he liked it or not. The funny thing was that when he saw how well it worked for her, he decided to try it too to treat his neck pain.
