Carol U. – April 2019
“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.”
