My uncle works installing solar panels on the roof by trade plus he’s actually great at it. Unfortunately, about a year ago, he fell off a roof in a freak accident and he ended up falling multiple stories down plus landing in a tree. He’s lucky that it didn’t kill him but he did end up splitting his back in multiple places. He then had to have back surgery for that injury. Well, ever since then, he has had a lot of residual pain from the injury plus from the surgery too. He was on high levels of prescription pain medications for about 8 weeks but he hated taking them. He said that he hated all the side effects the meds were having on him plus he felt the drugs were kind of taking over his life in a very bad way. So he started doing some research into alternative treatments on the internet. He came across medical marijuana to treat pain from back injuries. At first, my uncle was hesitant to start using marijuana in any shape or form. This is because he had constantly been taught that pot was a really bad thing and 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. So he bought some medical marijuana edibles and tried them out. He was amazed at how well they worked from the very first time he used them instead of the painkillers. Amazingly, my uncle says that he doesn’t actually have any side effects from the marijuana at all plus that he plans to keep using the marijuana edibles for as long as he has any pain whatsoever.
