“I started using cannabis medically 3 years ago because I have fibromyalgia. My caregiver has tried providing me with a few different strains, but so far nothing has helped in a drastic way, not even pharmaceutical medicine. So far, the best way for me to medicate is to smoke flower when I’m at home to try and get as much relaxation as I can.”
When Cindy was in Las Vegas in 2018, she bought some 1000mg THC tincture to try. “I took it as directed on the bottle, but noticed no changes in my condition.” Soon after trying the tincture, she learned that a family friend was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and it ended up spreading to his bones. “I gave the tincture to him to try and it was the best thing in the world! It helped him receive relief from the pain he was in everyday, and also helped him make it through the chemotherapy treatment. I told him about CBD oil and he began taking that as well. It didn’t help with his pain management like using THC did, but it helped him be more relaxed. Soon after, he had a PET scan and a CT scan and his cancer was gone! Although cannabis didn’t help me to the same degree, my knowledge of cannabis worked miracles for someone with a more life-threatening disease!”
Using cannabis has helped Cindy in other ways, especially with reducing the stress and anxiety in her life. “If you know anything about fibromyalgia, the main cause of flare-ups is stress. So using cannabis has helped me in so many other ways to make my quality of life a lot easier.”
“I want to know that the medicine I am getting is safe to use and that it’s from a reputable place. I value being able to consult with a physician who knows how to treat specific conditions with cannabis.”

“I lived for years with chronic pain on opiates. In March of 2018, I decided to get my medical card after having neck surgery in 2017. I was suffering from chronic pain and was no longer able to get opioid medication from doctors, so I needed to find a new way to manage pain. Was frustrated with over-the-counter medications not working, so I talked to my doctors about medical cannabis and they encouraged me to go for it. They were very supportive in my journey to get off of opioids.
I prefer medicating with edibles and vaping. I like CBD for daytime use and use a mix of CBD/THC in the evening.”
Carol says cannabis has definitely changed her condition for the better. “I no longer use any prescription medications and feel so much better. I have less anxiety and sleep much better,” emphasizing her better outlook on life, especially because she is able to work every day with less pain and anxiety, and a better attitude in general.
“If not for centers like Om, I’d feel hopeless. If you want to kick the opiate habit, try cannabis! It works and you will feel so much better.”

Tiffany began using cannabis in December of 2016 to treat her chronic pain from neuropathy and fibromyalgia.
“I prefer vaporizing to treat my fibromyalgia and my neuropathy because I can vape at specific temperatures so I have better control over the release of terpenes and cannabinoids that helps reduce the pain from my conditions.
I can now sleep and function better, which leads me to a better quality of life. Cannabis has saved me from pain!”
“Knowing I’m getting lab tested cannabis from a knowledgeable staff is so important to me. I love being able to meet with consultants that are there to help with any questions that I may have.”
