Any experienced Spoonie will tell you that there is a level of frustration when it comes to getting relief from their symptoms or chronic pain. A lot of the time we can get some relief from our symptoms using traditional pharmaceuticals, physical therapy, food therapy, etc. However, a lot of research is beginning to show that CBD and THC can be keys to symptom and pain relief for people with chronic illnesses.
On this week’s episode we dive deeper into how cannabis can be used to relieve these symptoms that plague us. We welcome Holly Anderson, Administrator for the Medical Cannabis DIY Community. She discusses how cannabis, especially strains of CBD, have helped her overcome symptoms of her traumatic head injury–and how it’s helping those around her.
We dive deeper into the types of cannabis and CBD out there, how they can affect us, how we can combine strains, terpenes, and experiment to find what is our best combination for our situations. We also talk about how to find your community and your people when it comes to this new cannabis adventure we’re on. Overcoming this stigma that we’ve created around cannabis can be the hardest part in getting started!
So take a listen. And join us in the Facebook group to continue the discussion! If you want to go deeper and get started making your own medical cannabis, you can join the Medical Cannabis DIY Facebook group, or if you want to discuss more and ask questions before you even think about trying cannabis for your chronic illness, email us or join us in our private Facebook group to explore the issue further!
Have a great week, everyone!
