Chronic pain is one of the most common elements that marijuana is prescribed to help.
My mom started using medical marijuana a couple of months ago. At first, I thought it was a terrible idea. I told my mom that she was going to get sick and probably lose her mind. The truth is that I didn’t know anything about medical marijuana and I was totally and completely speculating. My mom decided to try medical marijuana despite all of the things that I said. She had a lot of positive things to say about her experience and that made me think about the possibilities of using medical marijuana myself. I have terrible fibromyalgia and chronic pain. Sometimes there isn’t anything that makes the pain go away and that would include pain pills and other over the counter products. When I talked to my doctor about medical marijuana, he was surprised that I was bringing it up. He agreed that medical marijuana could offer some relief to me if I was willing to try it. I wasn’t even sure that I would go into the dispensary. I didn’t want any of my friends to see me in the building. I didn’t want the whole town talking about me in the marijuana shop. I was lucky to have several places that delivered. The drivers arrive in unmarked cars and my neighbors probably think that I am having pizza or other takeout delivered. I’ve been smoking marijuana for the past three months and I haven’t had to go to the dispensary at all yet.
