Over the Thanksgiving weekend my family and I stayed with a dear friend. Our dear friend partakes of medical cannabis which helps with his depression, insomnia, and panic attacks. He suggested that my husband should give it a try because it could help relieve his pain and help him to sleep during the night.
So hubby tried it (three nights in a row, about 15 minutes each session), didn't like the scatchy throat he got from inhaling the smoke but he said it helped his pain and he was able to rest. He wasn't too comfortable partaking but since we've been home he's kinda changed his mind about it. Says that the quality of his sleep was better, his blood pressure went down, his pain was less and he was able to sleep during the night, and he had no acid reflux (well that was because he didn't take his prescribed medication (about 18 to 22 pills every night) during the time he was smoking the pot).
Now hubby is seriously considering getting a prescription for medical cannabis. I don't have a problem with it as long as it helps my husband.
