My brother convinced me that I needed to stop taking my prescribed pain medication that my doctor gave me. I must admit that I was hesitant to do so a first. I mean, after all, my brother is not a licensed professional or anything. He was a true believer in the power of medical marijuana edibles, though, because he too had once been a patient at a pain management clinic. After he’d gone to a seminar about medical marijuana, he decided to go off of his pain medication and try using medical marijuana edibles instead in order to manage his chronic pain for a knee injury he had incurred during his career in the armed services. Once he weaned himself off his pain medication, he started using edible medical marijuana once per day in the mornings to help keep his knee pain-free during his work day. He said that he couldn’t believe just how well the medical cannabis helped with managing his pain. I guess if it had been anyone else, I never would have even considered trying it, but since it was my own brother, I thought that I might as well give it a chance. My brother actually gave me some of the edible medicinal marijuana that he had left over and when I tried it to help alleviate my back and neck pain, I couldn’t believe how well that it worked. Just a little bit of the edible marijuana helped with managing my back and neck issues all day and I didn’t even have to take any of my prescribed pain meds that day. Since I hate the feeling that pain medications give me and the side effects that I sometimes get from them, I’ve decided to wean myself off of my medications too and give medical marijuana a try myself.
