Getting old is no joke.
- I used to think that 40 was ancient and now that I am that age, I know that it is true.
I feel like an old woman when I try to get out of bed in the morning. Sometimes the pain is so bad that I have to lay there a little while longer. I have lots of aches and pains that did not affect me when I was younger. These aches and pains often keep me from sleeping well during the night time hours. I used to take NyQuil every single night to help me sleep. It was a problem for a short amount of time. Once I realized that my body was addicted to sleeping medicine, I decided it wasn’t a good idea to use it anymore. That’s when I started looking into medical marijuana products. Medical marijuana has been proven to be effective at relieving a number of medical problems. Pain relief is at the top of that list. In fact, More than 70% of people that use medical marijuana claim to do so for pain. The cannabinoids in the marijuana product react with the natural receptors in our brain. These receptors are responsible for the pain response in our body. By manipulating the pain receptors, we can more accurately and effectively control the body’s response to the pain that it feels. I definitely sleep much better when I use marijuana products. If I smoke a marijuana joint before bedtime, I will be guaranteed to get at least six full hours of sleep. Without marijuana, I barely sleep for two or three hours a night.
