When my mother started using medical marijuana edibles to treat migraine headaches, my father was not pleased. He thought that she should continue to use the doctor prescribed medications and forget about looking for alternative treatments, but my mom was not cooperative with that method at all. She was having migraine headaches at least three times a week. It was definitely impacting her quality of life. Unfortunately, the medication that the doctors had prescribed for her had some poor side effects. She just couldn’t bare the thought of having to take those drugs for a prolonged phase of time. After weeks of research as well as 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 as well as try to get high. When she explained to him that certain types of marijuana such as the medicinal kind and cannabis oil are not the same thing that make you get high, but only work for relaxation as well as pain management, he was more receptive to the system of her using it for her migraines. She was very angry with my dad for thinking that she just wanted to get high. So 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 joint pain too and now he uses it all the time!
