Due to my many illnesses ( General Anxiety Disorder, Depression, Panic Disorder, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Crohn’s Disease, Chronic Nausea and Vomiting, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Peptic Ulcer, and Chronic Tension Migraines. ) I am directed to take a cocktail of medications. All of these medications have taken a major toll on my body. The process of finding the right medications was even more excruciating. I was experiencing side effects from several drugs all at once. For two months I was left in indescribable discomfort. As of right now, I am prescribed Zoloft, Valium, Seroquel, Gabapentin, Hyoscyamine, Prednisone, Bentyl, Prochlorperazine, Robaxin, and if the pain is severe, then 20mg of Oxycontin. After matching with all these medications and letting them work their way through my body, I figured this was as much relief as I was going to get. Until I found Cannabis. The wonder drug. It has helped with every single one of my ailments.
I have used Medical Cannabis in many forms since I was prescribed Oxys. I had a severe spine injury and traumatic brain injury from a car accident, I had little to no physical therapy for the first 5 years. I was using the “Oxys” for 6 months, and by month 4 I had had enough of the gut pains and sickness/drowsiness. Now I take my cannabis in an inhalant or edible or topical form. Overall, a liniment is the absolute quickest way to stop a spasm in its tracks. For the persistent or over-reactive spasms, I use a salve/lotion transdermally, and I drink a tincture tea. I then follow my current physical therapist’s instructions by laying on the floor to reset the spinal alignment. For a sleepless night, nothing works better than a suppository
