A little over a year ago, I was involved in a rather nasty motorcycle accident.
I was riding on the back of my husband’s motorcycle when a motorist ran a stop sign and struck us.
Both my husband and I were fortunate to survive. We went through multiple surgeries, a lengthy stay in the hospital and a great deal of physical therapy. When the medical insurance coverage ran out and we were back at home, neither of us felt 100%. We both suffered from an assortment of aches and pains. We struggled to navigate the stairs, drive or sleep at night. It was impossible to return to work or enjoy our favorite activities. We were both unwilling to continue with prescription medication. The synthetic drugs were negatively affecting our moods, appetite and digestion. We were concerned about the long-term implications. I did some research and was impressed with the many success stories from cannabis as a therapeutic treatment. We are very fortunate to live in a state with legal recreational cannabis. We didn’t need to get a doctor’s recommendation or wait for a valid MMJ card. I was able to shop at a local dispensary through their website. My husband and I didn’t need to leave the house to place an order for cannabis topicals, edibles and vapes. I simply supplied all of my information, checked out and chose delivery. Because I spent the required amount, the delivery service was free. The package was delivered to the house that same day. My husband and I are so thankful for the pain relief we’ve gotten from cannabis.
