The pains are largely due to micro spasms in various muscles. If I could get rid of the spasms, I know my quality of life would be greatly improved. In this light, Kathe and I went through the process (or should I say racket) to get me a medical marijuana card. I know most think of the medical aspects of marijuana in terms of getting high, but this is not the case when patients stick to a cannabis derivative CBD to alleviate pain and tremors. With my doctor’s blessing, I tried some CBD. I am happy to report that my spasms and pain reduced—all without any other side effects except for a slight headache.
Some patients, in addition to taking CBD, take small dosages of psychotropic versions of cannabis like “Indica” to help them sleep. I have no desire to get high, so I will pretty much stick with CBD in its liquid form.
Now that I know all of this, I am convinced that the drug lobby is behind the whole anti-medical marijuana campaign. CBD is a heck of a lot better than Tylenol with far less collateral damage.
