Medical Marijuana Patients: Who Uses Medical Cannabis?

Medical Marijuana Patients: Who Uses Medical Cannabis?

Posted by Marijuana Doctors on 07/26/2010 in Medical Marijuana Patient Stories

Medical marijuana is a versatile medicine that helps patients across America manage symptoms from cancer, HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis, chronic pain, glaucoma and countless others. Medical marijuana users come from all walks of life. Just ask Per H., a 70-year-old semi-retired business owner and former chemist who lives in Colorado.

For six months now, Per has used medical marijuana for pain management from a serious leg ulcer. Prior to that, he was taking Vicodin and Percocet but was could barely manage the serious side effects caused by the prescription meds. He talked to his doctor about medical marijuana, and now medicates regularly with Indica dominant edibles.

Since Per began using medical marijuana, he has ceased using any other pain meds. And a pleasant but unexpected side effect of the medicine is that it is also helping his enlarged prostate. For years the enlarged prostrate has interfered with his urine stream and caused him multiple trips to the bathroom at night. But since using medical marijuana, he now sleeps through the night and his urination has returned to near normal.

“It would seem that this plant must have been provided by a creator who knew that it would help with a variety of ailments or needs,” said Per. “It’s time to stop being afraid of something so harmless, but oh so useful.”
