As a sports medicine specialist with a degree in Kinesiology, Cannabis had never really played much of a part in my life. To be honest, I had always considered it more of a detriment to health than anything, and as such, pretty much avoided it. But in 2006, my health took a turn for the worse, and I soon found myself incapacitated and unable to work due to severe nausea, stomach pain, and panic attacks. I was subjected to years of tests, doctors visits, and specialists appointments without any answers or explanations for my symptoms, and all the while, my condition worsened.
Things finally reached a tipping point after I had lost over 60 pounds, and the medications the doctors were prescribing had stopped working. A friend who had witnessed the pain I was going through gave me a few buds to try, hoping it would offer at least a little relief. That night I rolled my first joint, and amazingly, after just a couple small puffs, my appetite came back, my mood improved, my anxiety reduced, and I got a good nights sleep without medications for the first time in months. It was after this that I decided I needed to learn more about the therapeutic effects of Cannabis. My academic background in the health sciences allowed me to do my own research, and form my own opinions about this plant, without simply believing the propaganda spewed forth by our government. It wasn’t long before I was convinced that Cannabis was a more effective, and far safer alternative to the chemicals that I had been using to treat my symptoms.
Early this year I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease, and was granted a Canadian Medical Marijuana user’s and grower’s permit. Using Cannabis has significantly reduced my symptoms, allowed me to reduce and eliminate almost all of my medications, and has given me to the power to treat my disease in the best way that I see fit.
I am now on a mission to find the best strains of Cannabis for treating Crohn’s, Coliitis, and other gastrointestinal diseases. Sites like this one have been invaluable to me in my search for the perfect medicinal strain, and user submitted reviews have largely influenced my seed selections. By growing my own organic Cannabis, and submitting my reviews on the various strains that I grow and breed, I hope to be able to help others in my situation identity the best medicine for their conditions and find relief from pain and discomfort.
