My brother convinced me that I needed to stop taking prescribed pain medications that my doctor gave me after my surgery. He is actually a true believer in the power of medical marijuana edibles 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 back injury he had incurred while in his career in the armed services. However, once he weaned himself off his pain medication, he started using edible medical marijuana once per day in the mornings to help keep his back pain-free. He said that he was absolutely amazed at 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 very own family, I thought that I might as well give medical marijuana a fair chance. My brother gave me some of the edible medicinal marijuana that he had left over from his last trip to the dispensary and when I tried it to help alleviate my back and neck pain, I really was in awe of how well it worked and how quickly my pain went away. Just a little bit of the edible marijuana helped with managing our back and neck complications all day and I didn’t even have to take any of my doctor prescribed pain meds that day. Since I don’t care for the feeling that pain medications supply me and the side effects that I occasionally get from them, I’ve decided to wean myself off of our medications too and use medical marijuana edibles for good.
