I have been smoking marijuana since I was 25, but it wasn’t until I reached the ripe age of 31 when I actually needed it medically.
Don’t get me wrong, recreational marijuana is a great way to relax, or for whatever purpose others may use it for, but for all sakes and purpose, medically; depending on the ailment, is a godsent.
I was in a vehicle accident on March 9, 2009, at approximately 12:30pm. There was a bit of slush on the road; which were quickly melting into oblivion, The sun was shining and blaring in recognition of spring!
As I hopped in my vehicle to embark on a short trip to the dollarstore, another individual had a similar idea; although I’m uncertain of their destination.
I made my way around a bend in the road, which housed another road joining the one I’m on, but garnished with a stop sign for oncoming traffic to enter.
I’m not sure if the individual did the proposed left-right checks for incoming vehicles, but I recall there was no stopping when he approached the stop sign. I recognized quickly that he had no intentions of stopping, so I hit the breaks, threw my arm across towards the passenger seat; as a barrier for them, but I knew would ultimately do nothing, and I watched as my then puppy hit the passenger dashboard and land on the floor mat.
Skidding, wheels locked, then finally impact.
I hit him on the driver side door. A red GMC truck. I was in a 2007 Mazda 6. My car ended up as a write off.
Several sessions, and years of accupuncture, chiropractic services, massages, physiotherapy, and I’m just as broken today as I was then. That’s not to say that those treatments didn’t help, because they definitely did, but they were a temporary help. They helped in the moment. Naproxen, and a slew of other medication were prescribed to me, but I turned them away and focused on a natural health repair. I started to workout, and I believe that’s the best decision I’ve ever made. That decision didn’t just help me physically, but also mentally; in terms of mental strengths and abilities.
As years went by and the workouts facilitated more strength in my life, I soon learned the medical properties that marijuana possessed, so I started to pair marijuana with my workouts! I’m aware I said working out was the best thing, but working out with marijuana is by far the best. Focused is established right from the starting gate of the workout, the will and want to push yourself further, the relaxation of the muscles while being worked is simply unexplainable.
I run marathons now, and workout 2-3 times per week, and I wouldn’t even think about performing my runs or workouts without my medication.
Thank you marijuana for this realization of your medical abilities, and for assisting in pushing myself further than I previously believed I could after such an accident.
In no way shape or form am I being paid to advertise or am I affiliated with cannafarms, however, noteworthy, I have chosen them as my compassionate dispensary, which is located in British Columbia. I’ve been receiving medications exact to specifications since I had chosen them.
