I have worked in construction all my life and have always dealt with the daily aches and pains that come along with it. As I have gotten older, I also began having severe lower back pain. After many years of dealing with it, I went to my doctor and he simply prescribed me Vicodin for the pain. After taking the pills for a couple days, I knew that it wasn’t going to be a solution for me. I don’t know how people take those all day at work and still function. One night at a work party, I tried some medical cannabis that my friend had and I was shocked by how well it worked. My pain level went down and that night I slept better than I had in years. Once I got my medical card, I stopped smoking it and started using capsules and pain salve. The pain salve helps reduce the inflammation and pain during the day and the capsules help me sleep at night. I am very grateful to have found something that works for me.
