I have had exhausting pain in our knees for the past 5 years. I was taking a pain pill for a while and after that I realized that I was going through withdrawals when I didn’t take it everyday. That was a large green 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 really didn’t know much about medical marijuana products until our bestie told myself and others about marijuana as a pain reliever. I was absolutely distraught about developing a problem, although 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, then 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 complications that I do. When I mentioned medical marijuana, several people urged myself and others to provide it a try. I wasn’t going to tell our mom that I was using medical marijuana, but last weekend he noticed our increase in mobility and our ecstatic attitude. She wanted to know what I was doing to help the pain.
