My uncle works no top of roofs fixing them by trade. He’s absolutely wonderful at it. But, about a year ago, he fell off a roof in a bad accident plus he ended up falling more than one stories down plus landing in a ditch. He’s lucky that it didn’t kill him but he did end up messing up and breaking his back in more than one place plus of course having back surgery for that injury. Well, ever since then, he has had a lot of weird pain from the injury plus from the surgeries too. He was on high levels of pain medications for about 6 months but he hated taking them. He said that he hated all the side effects the meds were having on him plus he felt as if the drugs were kind of taking over his life. So he started doing some research into alternative treatments plus he came across the way that some people are using medical marijuana to treat pain from back injuries. At first he was hesitant to start using marijuana in any shape or form. My uncle is conservative and he had consistently been taught that marijuana along with all the other drugs were bad things plus that he should stay far far away from them. But then he saw the benefits to using something natural instead of a chemical to treat his chronic pain plus so he obtained some medical marijuana edibles. He was very scared to take the first one but just 20 minutes after he took his first bite, he was amazed at how well they worked. Now, he says that he doesn’t have any side effects from the marijuana at all plus that he plans to keep using the marijuana edibles as long as he suffers from back pain.
