When some friends of mine wanted to go to the new Cannabis Dispensary in our area, I wasn’t sure that I wanted to go. For a long time I have been dealing with chronic pain, but I just take painkillers. They wanted me to try cannabis instead to see if that would help me out better, but I was skeptical of cannabis and the “high” that comes along with it. When I finally gave in and decided to go to the cannabis dispensary, I couldn’t have made a better choice. The place was really nice and the staff members were very knowledgeable about all the products. They had me telling them about all my issues with chronic pain and if I felt anxiety and things like that. I went over everything with them so that they could find me the best cannabis products to meet my needs. They really were spot on too because when I first tried some of the edibles, my pain was practically gone! Sure there was a “high” that came along with the experience, but the high was actually very pleasant and put me in a very good mood. I can’t remember the last time I felt so great to be honest. I think a lot of it had to do with the fact that my pain was finally gone. The cannabis was able to relieve the pain far better than the painkillers I was taking. I learned that you could even manage your pain with CBD products that didn’t give you the high. I learned that cannabis products affect everyone differently though, so the success with pain management really depends on the individual. For me, the edibles work great and some of the strains I got are fantastic for pain relief!
