I didn’t just wake up one morning and decide that I was going to treat my chronic pain with cannabis. No, I spent years researching how to use it, what it could help with, and the impact it could have on not just my life, but that also of my family if I chose to medicate with marijuana.

I am sharing my experiences, my knowledge, and my two cents so that others who are curious about this topic will have the information that I wish I had had before I began medicating with cannabis.
I will never say that cannabis is for everyone, because it isn’t. For some there are other factors that would make their lives worse if they did. But for me, choosing to medicate with it was one of the best decisions I ever made. That is why I have started this series. To help you make not just a personal decision, but one that may require changes in your life. The purpose of this series is to educate and empower you to make the best decision for your life.
