Tracey is a Multiple Sclerosis (MS) patient. After living with the condition for decades, she made the choice to ease her pain with marijuana.
When I use medical marijuana, I get to have a normal body. I get to have a normal body for a little while. That’s a freedom you need. It’s essential and very hard to just let go, because you can’t let go. There’s something in your brain that makes you feel tight and rotten as you can possibly feel. BOOM. And that’s what happens every day.
Multiple Sclerosis is a neurodegenerative autoimmune disease that affects the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerve. For some reason, the immune system begins to think of neurons as harmful invaders. So, the body’s own immune cells begin to attack neurons. All of the self-inflicted damage causes a buildup of scar tissue. This means that neurons can no longer fire correctly to send basic signals to the rest of the body.
Cannabis can help because it protects your brain, it eases pain, it stops muscle stiffness and spasms, it helps with digestion, it helps you sleep, it takes away the blues, and it protects your eyes.
These things are all key for MS patients, you can read more about why and access some of the science in detail, here.
Growing your own medical marijuana can be a life saver, and the only way to know what’s in your weed is to grow your own.
Health Canada allows you to grow approximately 5 times the amount of grams you were prescribed per day in plants i.e. if you were prescribed 5 gram per day, you can grow 25 plants indoors. Many Doctors are not comfortable signing these prescriptions and if they do, they are extremely conservative and don’t understand that many people prefer to eat or juice rather than smoke and this require much more product.
