And it was immediate
You never think it will happen to you and then, it does. That’s exactly how it goes. You see terrible things happen to other people and just never really consider just what it would be like if it was you. That sort of perspective changed in but an instant for me due to a really bad car wreck. However, I’m very glad to report that medical marijuana is helping me get my recovery back on track. There was a lengthy hospital stay with some surgeries to repair my body. But once I got home, that’s where the real challenge began. The physical therapy involved in my recovery was just so tough and I was always hurting. And that led me to lean more heavily on the pain meds. This was before I got a cannabis education so I ended up taking pain meds just to go to PT. And then more pain meds after PT. Before long, I was working myself right into a bit of an addiction. I knew that I needed to find an alternative. That’s when I did a deep dive into the medical marijuana benefits for someone in my situation. Wow, I just wish I had figured out how to get a medical marijuana card a bit sooner. I can’t believe just how great the medical marijuana worked for me. And it was immediate. The first PT session after starting treatment with medical cannabis was filled with much more range of motion and I could manage the pain. Had it not been for medical marijuana, I could have really developed a problem with those pain medications.
