I’ve struggled with multiple sclerosis for over 20 years. In this time, I have been on over 30 prescription medications, each one with unsettling side effects. There were times when the side effects seemed worse than the actual MS. I was often left in a drugged-up state, depressed and void of all other emotions. I started taking marijuana in the form of edibles over 3 years ago, and was able to whittle down my prescriptions to zero! I now only medicate with cannabis and occasionally take over the counter painkillers. My MS symptoms are kept under control and the lack of side effects gives me back a quality of life I have not experienced for decades.
