I knew Parkinson’s syndrome was active in our family tree.
But of course, I was hoping that it would pass me over, but yet, I wasn’t so blessed and started dealing with this condition in our late forties. The meds that I was initially offered helped me with plenty of our symptoms. But with those meds, as with multiple others, there were side effects. It appears that I have a really sensitive body when it comes to meds. The side effects from the Parkinson’s medications ended up being so unpleasant that I couldn’t take them. This is when I started to try finding a new alternative treatment. An alternative med consultant turned me on to some genuinely unbelievable medical marijuana information. I gained wisdom that cannabis flower products can help with some of our symptoms. Of course, medical marijuana was not going to cure our condition nor are any other meds. But I was able to ingest the medical cannabis so much better than I was with the prescription medicine. It has absolutely helped me with spasm as well as range of motion; Now I can do a lot more into the essential exercises I need to do thanks to medical cannabis. But even more than just managing the many symptoms of our condition, I’m getting an added medical marijuana benefit. Prior to treating myself with cannabis flower products, I was resistant and unaccepting of our chronic condition. Medical marijuana has helped me to lean into acceptance while doing the most I can do to have the best life possible.
