For months, I just didn’t feel like myself. It was like I had worked out way too much, not gotten much sleep and just was completely out of sorts. So I went to the doctor to see what was happening. I described my symptoms and the doctor did some test. Not too much later, I learned that I had MS. That was a big change and it happened quickly. Along with trying different medications, it was suggested that I might add medical marijuana to manage my MS. This seemed sort of odd to me. But at that point, I really didn’t know much at all about medical marijuana. That would change. I got to some cannabis events at a legal cannabis store. There I learned all about how dramatically medical cannabis can effect MS symptoms. When I began treatment with medical cannabis products, I could tell right away that it helped me with the stiffness and spasms I was experiencing. I continued to use the medical marijuana and found that I also was getting some real emotional benefit from the medical cannabis products as well. The longer I kept going to the legal weed store, the more I came in contact with others who were experiencing the same thing I was going through. So not only was I able to get the cannabis benefits from the legal weed store, I was meeting people and forming a sort of support network too. MS is no longer something that I fear as much as it’s something that I have accepted. My life will be different. But thanks to medical cannabis and the people at the legal marijuana store, I feel confident I can deal with it.
