Recently, my brother talked me into ditching my prescription pain medication and instead using medical marijuana to treat my pain. I must admit that I was hesitant to do so a first. I mean, after all, our brother is not a doctor or medical professional or anything. He was 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 knee injury he had incurred while in the armed services. Once he weaned himself off his pain medication, he started using edible medical marijuana once per day in the afternoons to help keep his knee pain free while at his job. He said that he was 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 brother, I thought that I might as well give it a go. My brother actually provided some of the edible medicinal marijuana that he had left over. I too was shocked at how well that it worked. Just a little bit of the edible marijuana helped with managing back plus neck issues all day plus I didn’t even have to take any of my doctor prescribed pain meds that day. Since I do not like the feeling that pain medications give me on top of the side effects that I sometimes get from them, I’ve decided to wean myself off of our medications too and convert to strictly medical marijuana.
