I smoked a ton of weed when I was in college.
My cannabis product consumption diminished once I got to grad school.
Still, enjoying cannabis flower products was part of how I let go of stress. So why I quit using cannabis products in the ensuing years is a puzzle. Then I got hit with a chronic pain condition. I visited so many physicians and took so many tests to understand what was happening. But nobody could explain it. They simply tried their best to help me manage the pain. And that led to a near horrifying situation for me. The pain meds were becoming a straight up drug habit. I needed them less and less for pain than I did because my system craved the chemicals. I for sure didn’t want to end up as a junkie with a chronic pain problem. With the help of a dear friend, I learned just how to get a medical marijuana card. From there, the folks at the legal cannabis shop have been instrumental in both saving my life and managing my chronic pain. I had to ween myself off of the pain meds and cannabis flower products were an essential part of that process. Now, I am managing the chronic pain better than I ever have. The medical marijuana helps manage the pain but it does more than that. Using the cannabis flower products helps me do the things that actively help my condition. Like the exercises and stretching routines are made easier with the cannabis products. I’m just so thankful to have the access to legal cannabis. Without medical marijuana, I’d be in really rough shape.
