Pharmaceutical medications have been a literal lifeline to our mother who has a severe case of Crohn’s Disease.
With the amazing prescription drugs that he has been prescribed by his physician, he has not only evaded death but has had a higher quality of life than he would without the drugs. I remember times while in college and residing at beach house where I would get beach house late from work after classes and she’d be kneeling on his kitchen floor unable to move. It was harshly terrifying for myself and others because I feared the morning when I would return beach house and be unable to get his to respond at all. While he was lucky to find pharmaceutical drugs that work for her, I have a associate with Crohn’s who hasn’t responded well to any of the major drugs on the market. Thankfully they have found much needed relief in medical marijuana instead. I think some people who use strong CBD products to help treat their epilepsy problems. My former boss used to keep his seizures at bay with a combination of high THC and high CBD products. If he couldn’t get his much needed cannabis medications, he would relapse and have seizures again. The benefits of medical marijuana are not exclusive to a handful of diseases and ailments. Some just need it for depression or anxiety symptoms. Other’s find that it helps them with social insecurities. I use cannabis for headaches and migraines personally. I don’t think what I would do if I couldn’t keep access to cannabis as it’s better than acetaminophen or ibuprofen for our head pain.
