My moods were better, my pain was reduced, and I had more energy at work than I’ve had in years
I have a busy work schedule as a car mechanic. This area gets a swell of tourist traffic during the cold winter season, so we have a grower pool of customers now that outdoor temperatures are starting to drop. This is great on one hand because we’re all making more money than we have for at least six months, but I’m struggling because of the joint pain in my hands and legs. I had one doctor who wanted to put me on opiate pain killers but I resisted. Even when I had to take them for a kidney stone a few years ago, I didn’t like the side effects and what it did to my mood. I love marijuana in general, but I can’t smoke anything with a high THC content before or during work. There are serious OSHA concerns operating car lifts if you’re intoxicated. That’s why I eat CBD edibles during the day to help with my pain problems. Surprisingly, they’re rather effective for extremity pain like the soreness I get in my joints. Once my body got used to the CBD and I was consuming more and more everyday, I was noticing a huge improvement in my entire mode of being. My moods were better, my pain was reduced, and I had more energy at work than I’ve had in years. If just one cannabinoid is capable of doing this to me, it makes me even more impressed by the marijuana plant specifically. It is a magical medicine for countless different ailments, giving some people a new chance at life again following years of suffering.
