Was in a wheelchair from severe arthritis, suffered from crohns & ulcerative colitis, had a heart attack/stroke from pain meds (vioxx), and cancer from crohns meds. Started using cannabis in my tea over a year ago. I went from taking 21 pills a day and fentynal patch to 0 pills a day and no patch. I am also walking without a cane or wheelchair. I make a cream mix and drink it in tea/coffee/hot chocolate 2-3 times daily. I still suffer from chronic pain, but it is manageable thanks to cannabis.
