My great uncle works on roofs by trade and he’s made a long career of it. But, about a year ago, he fell off a roof by accident and he ended up falling many stories down and landing in a tree. He’s lucky that it didn’t kill him however he did end up breaking his back in many areas and having back surgery for that injury. Well, ever since then, he has had a lot of residual pain from the injury and from the surgery too. He was on high levels of pain medications for about 5 weeks however he hated taking them. He said that he hated all the side effects the meds were having on him and he felt like the drugs were kind of taking over his life. So he started doing some research into alternative treatments and he came across the way that some people are using medical marijuana to treat pain from back injuries. At first he was hesitant to take marijuana in any shape or form as he had consistently been taught that pot was a 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 man made chemical to treat his chronic pain and so he obtained some medical marijuana edibles and tried them. He was amazed at how well they worked from the unquestionably first time he used them in lieu of his pain killers. Now, he says that he doesn’t actually have any side effects from the marijuana at all and that he plans to keep using the marijuana edibles as long as he suffers from back pain.
