My cannabis story in a nutshell. Hit by a drunk driver in '02. Back wrecked badly. Surgery -- 2 level spinal fusion with hardware. Currently have failed back syndrome.

I had been on opioids 16 yrs and still had major pain, neuropathy yada.. Feb, 2018, went off all opioids at home. Went through he** for 6 weeks, but with the help of cannabis, I made it through.

And I learned that my pain was just as bad without the opioids as with them. I now take zero pain pills. Thank you Cannabis. Couldn't have done it without your help.

Update -- I recently had a spinal cord stimulator implanted, NOT a pain pump -- and am having a lot of success with it. Between that and med MJ, I feel like a new person, and even at my age (over 65) am getting stronger every day. When I quit all opiates, I weighed 106 lbs. I am now 136 pounds -- (God bless the munchies!) and my docs and family are astounded by the changes, both physically and emotionally.

I find that Indicas work best for relieving pain. Also to help me get to sleep.
