I wanted to try medical marijuana to see if it would help with my migraine headaches.
It didn’t matter what kind of medication the doctor gave me, I always had some kind of reaction to it. When I heard that medical marijuana was finally legalized, I knew it was my last chance to find something to ease the pain. I had already given up on traditional medications. I had tried acupuncture and meditation, but neither of these worked. I walked into the marijuana dispensary with my medical card in hand and told them I needed to have something for migraines. I didn’t want anything that had to be smoked and something that would work that wasn’t harsh. If I had to chew hard when I had a migraine, I wouldn’t be able to take it. Chewing caused extra pain. The budtender at the marijuana dispensary told me they had marijuana tinctures you could place under your tongue for faster relief. They also had marijuana tablets you could melt on your tongue. These were easy to use, but they took a bit longer for the marijuana to work. She suggested I try the melting tablets and the tincture. She said if I had some time from the moment I felt it coming on until it hit full force I could try an edible. I liked the idea of marijuana tablets and tincture. I got several flavors of each not really caring what flavor because all I wanted was for the marijuana to get rid of the migraine. It took about ten minutes from the minute I put the marijuana tincture under my tongue until I began to feel its effects.
