Medical marijuana may not be right for everyone.

Although some people believe that medical marijuana may be the end all be all for all ailments and health issues, I don’t.

Last week, I got my first prescription filled for medical marijuana.

It isn’t even the pain of the arthritis that is getting to me, but the fact that I am unable to sleep. Do you know what it is like to need to keep your feet out from under the covers? When something comes in contact with my feet, I am in pain. The nerve ends in my feet have become hypersensitive. Even in the worst weather, I wear flip flops or I stay home because I can’t stand shoes. I don’t even wear socks unless it is absolutely necessary. I finally gave up on trying to get rid of the pain, and opted to tell my medical marijuana pharmacist that I needed something to help me go to sleep. She gave me an oil that I could put under my tongue, and he said it would put me to sleep. Deep dreams are one of the strongest things she had for sleeping in her medical marijuana dispensary. I took the medical marijuana oil home with me. At nine thirty I put the oil under my tongue and held it there for the required thirty seconds. An hour later, I was still wide awake. I waited another half hour and turned the television on. By one in the morning, I was finally falling asleep. I don’t think it had anything to do with the medical marijuana oil, but everything to do with my being up since four in the morning.
