Cindy K. – April 2019

“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.”
