My knees have been aching and hurting for a very long time.
I thought that I was never going to be able to walk again for long distances, but medical marijuana has given me a new lease on life.
Medical marijuana was prescribed to me by the doctor. Medical marijuana was not even on my radar at that time. I had never even thought about using medical marijuana to treat the pain and my knees. The doctor thought I should at least try it to see if it would work. I had to jump through a lot of hoops to get my medical marijuana card. There were times when I absolutely thought it was not worth all of the hassle to go through the steps just to use marijuana, especially when I wasn’t entirely sure that it was even going to work. When I finally got everything that I needed, my husband went with me to the doctor’s office. We talked to the person at the medical marijuana clinic so they could tell us what products would work out best for the pain in my knees. The budtender recommended a CBD tincture and a balm with THC. She also told me that I should try smoking marijuana. The following week the kids were coming over and I knew that the grandchildren would want to go for a walk. I thought it was the perfect time to try out the smokable marijuana. I had a joint that I got from the dispensary. I lit it up and took a couple of puffs. About ten minutes later, I was feeling a little dizzy, but there was no pain in my knees.
