We’d like to shine a light on a few patients in this article, to share their insights and experiences on how medical marijuana has benefitted them throughout their illness. Please take the time to read through the list of 5 testimonials from real patients who have had positive outcomes from using the herb for their treatments.
#1 Rebecca Swell an advocate of medical marijuana
When Rebecca was 10 years old she was diagnosed with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, this condition comes from damage to the nervous system and causes extreme pain. Rebecca was forced into a walker or wheelchair from a young age, and when spinal cord stimulation and morphine didn’t work, she tried medical marijuana. Rebecca now needs no walking support, no morphine, and is an advocate of medical marijuana.
#2 Charlotte Figgi (Charlotte’s Web)
The story of Charlotte Figgi is more well known than most. Charlotte was diagnosed with a rare form of epilepsy at a young age and at 5 she experienced close to 300 mal seizures per week. The condition was so bad the doctor put her in a medically induced coma. In the first week of trying cannabis oil, Charlotte had no seizures. The strain created for her has no psychoactive effects and was renamed “Charlotte’s Web“.
#3 Ashley Surin
Ashly was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia, a type of cancer that affects white blood cells which makes it harder to fight infections. Ashley was also prone to seizures and her family moved to cannabis oil to aid this. The oil proved effective and is still used by Ashley to this day.
