I have had terrible pain in my knees for the past 5 years.
I was taking a pain pill for a while and then I realized that I was going through withdrawals when I didn’t take it everyday.
That was a huge red flag and I decided to stop taking the pain pills. I tried lots of natural and holistic ways to help the pain. One thing that I found that really helps a lot is marijuana. Marijuana comes from the cannabis sativa plant. Marijuana can be found in a variety of different forms. It can be smoked, vaped, eaten, and also applied topically. I honestly didn’t know much about medical marijuana products until my girlfriend told me about marijuana as a pain reliever. I was definitely concerned about developing a problem, but I realized that cannabis was a safer option than anything else that I had tried. It also happens to be 100% legal in the state where I live. Laws were passed almost 10 years ago making recreational and medical marijuana both legal and accessible to the public. I talked with a couple of people online that belong to a message board that I frequent. Many of the people on the message board suffer from the same problems that I do. When I mentioned medical marijuana, several people urged me to give it a try. I wasn’t going to tell my mom that I was using medical marijuana, but last weekend she noticed my increase in mobility and my happy attitude. She wanted to know what I was doing to help the pain.
