420 is right around the corner and the world of cannabis is getting ready to celebrate.
While many envision 420 being celebrated by getting “high AF” as the younger generation would say. Those of us who use cannabis and CBD for medicals purposes view this date a bit differently. Well, at least I do.
420 is a reminder a year ago my life was very different. Chronic arthritis pain in my hands, hip and leg kept me from being able to do many things that I wanted to do. One hand had so much pain that I was unable to hold a cup without dropping it or grasp a jar to open it. Walking for long distances was becoming harder to do and I dreaded weather reports saying rain was on the way because stiffness and pain would always get worse on these days. Daily doses of NSAIDs were leaving me with bruises on my arms and legs that had people question what was going on at home. Narcotics contributed to highly unwanted side effects like constipation. My day job requires non stop computer usage and typing just contributed to more pain and stiffness. I was thinking how many more years would I be able to work if my hands continued to get worse.
Then I discovered CBD, cannabis and microdosing. My world has improved greatly since that time. I no longer take narcotics or NSAIDs. The pain disappeared almost entirely in one hand and the pain/stiffness in the other has decreased greatly. I am able to take those long walks that my husband and I enjoy. While rainy days still make me achy and stiff the discomfort on those days is still reduced. I no longer wonder if I will need to stop working or change jobs due to the pain and immobility.
Life is much better. 420 is a day that reminds me of where I was and where I’m at now.
