How Medical Marijuana helps with managing Chronic Pain
What’s up cannabis growers, my name is Dylan and welcome back for another episode of GreenBox Grown. Today I will be doing an Interviewing with Duke who is a good Family Friend of mine and uses Cannabis to manage his chronic pain. He suffers from a laundry list of injuries which were all caused due to an accident he was in where his care was t-boned by a train moving at full speed! Without cannabis, Duke truly believes he wouldn’t be able to walk, let alone hold down a job or somewhat of a normal lifestyle. Luckily he was kind enough give me part of his Saturday to talk about this, so lets go see how that went.
Talking with Duke was extremely interesting because of how severe his injuries are, and how affective the cannabis is for his pain! So as I mentioned, Duke was in a vehicle that was hit by a train moving at full speed and he nearly died on site from his injuries. He was airlifted to the nearest hospital after the crash and during the flight he actually flatlined several times. Luckily, the doctors were able to keep him going and Duke has living well ever since!
Of course, he now suffers from a great deal of back pain as well as pain from all the joints on his body. His pain is so bad that he is very limited with mobility and usually needs a cain for walking around. all of this pain is just the unfortunate reality of surviving a train wreck, however Duke started using cannabis for the pain and was able to keep it somewhat under control. The doctors have Duke on 6 different prescription medications for his pain, which he claims does nearly nothing for it! What Duke has found to work best is using a minimal amount of the pain medications to help get it somewhat under control, and then he uses cannabis to alleviate the rest of his pain. That way he doesn’t get all the negative side affects of the medications such as depression and liver failure.
Believe it or not, Duke is now a highly successful and awarded Body Builder on both the UK and US circuit and has lived an extremely fulfilling life ever since the accident. To sum up what Duke’s biggest piece advice was from his experiences: It is important to stay mentally strong, even when in face to face with adversity! Don’t allow your injuries and ailments to control your life and happiness. Instead utilize medicines like cannabis so you can take back that control over your injuries and lead the most fulfilling life you want!
