The tremors came on sort of slowly when I was in my early 60’s.
But, I kind of knew intuitively that I was dealing with something other than common shakes.
A few years later I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s and it wasn’t exactly a great shock. What was shocking to me was that medical marijuana has been an essential treatment for my condition. I’m lucky that my Parkinson’s appears to be progressing slowly. The meds I’m on do help but I have found that adding cannabis flower product to the mix to be just the topper. My son was actually the one who introduced me to medical marijuana information. And once I looked into it a bit, it was clear to me that the medical marijuana benefits were certainly worth exploring. Besides, I had used cannabis products from time to time and tolerated them very well. I liked the fact that it’s a natural substance and not one generated by science. Not that I’m anti-science by any means. I just like the fact that I’m getting results from something that comes naturally from the earth. Getting access to the cannabis products was something where I did have to jump through some hoops. In our state, I had to see a specialized physician to in order to get through the cannabis regulations. While it took several months, which seems a bit much, it was well worth the effort. When I got to the medical marijuana store, the first time, I didn’t really know what to do. The good people at the legal weed shop helped me locate the cannabis products that would help my condition the best. I actually took home a few samples of cannabis flower product in order to tune in the best strain for me.
