I ruptured several discs in my low back and had several unsuccessful surgeries including a fusion. For a decade my pain specialists increased my pharma as my pain and health issues increased. I was finally told that I'd be disabled for life (I was wheelchair shopping) and need an implanted morphine pump when I asked them to detox me from their drugs. As I weaned off pharma and on to cannabis extracts, my family doc watched my vitals and my pain decreased, blood sugar stabilized, hormone levels stabilized, and 130lbs were lost. After a few years of cannabinoid therapy I don't have any chronic pain issues.
