In 2017 I was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer with liver metastases. After surgery I had to wait 4-6 weeks to start chemo. They sent me home with oxycodone and a variety of other narcotic pills to get me through the pain. Used them sparingly, did not like how I felt on them and really did not relieve the pain…
I stopped taking the pills and continued with my CBD oil. I use the oil as drops and could rub on painful areas to bring down inflammation and numb the pain. Once I received my medical marijuana card I was able to try different dosages and methods to find the perfect fit. My appetite returned, anxiety lessened… I could work a few hours a day and life has returned to a new normal. Pain still recurs after chemo yet I have managed it with different strains of medical marijuana.
As of today my cancer marker numbers have dropped significantly! I know it is the combination of chemo, medical marijuana and CBD oil that has made the difference. The pharmacists and staff at Organic Remedies have been so helpful and supportive through my journey! An excellent place to get started on your journey to a better quality of life.
I am dealing a condition that is causing all soft tissue connected to bone in my body to calcify, turning soft tissue into bone. Most days I have a pain level at about a six, but on really bad days, my pain level is enough to cause me to feel nausea and lightheadedness. I had been using Percocet for years to control the pain. I am classified as disabled and in fact there are days whereby any physical movement is excruciating. I have essentially stopped doing anything outside of my house, and interaction with family is hard also.
I started using medical marijuana in June. I have spent some time tweaking it to suit the particular pain levels I am having (something that I can’t control using standard meds), and having the ability to tweak my meds is a nice advantage.
More importantly, the CBD in medical marijuana works to control the inflammation that my disease causes in every joint of my body, thereby reducing pain. The THC works to control the pain as well. I do not feel hungover in any way after using it and there are no other apparent side-effects.
For the first time in several years, I am functioning again! I am doing things like playing catch with my sons, working on the yard, and going places. My hermit life is OVER!!!
I would NEVER go back to using Percocet, I will continue to use medical marijuana so that my quality of life is enhanced.
After a long time battling three painful diagnoses on the ‘allowed’ list I decided to try Medical Marijuana as a last resort. After registering online and getting certified by my doctor I had questions yet unanswered. One phone call to Eric and his staff answered all my questions prior to my initial meeting. I was ready to try. With one dose of vaping, I knew it would be successful as my pain drifted away.
I have eliminated three medications with my doctor’s approval and that more than pays for my products. Since starting Medical Marijuana I have had no need for pain pills for two and a half months.
The staff at Organic Remedies monitors and adjusts what may be better alternatives with my changing circumstances and the acquisition of newer products. They are polite, caring and knowledgeable. They have my highest recommendation, thanks and gratitude.
I have been suffering with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) for years without relief. The CBD product is definitely perfect for me for daytime/work use. The lower THC in it is better for when I am at work and the relief so far has been spectacular. The pills are just so easy to take, they are definitely a preferred way to take medical marijuana for me.
The RSO product is phenomenal and I use a drop of that at night. It helps me sleep and also allows me to eat dinner at night without fear of having to wake up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.
I can’t believe this relief after 20 years of chronic unpredictable diarrhea. I am thrilled!
To ease the pain of arthritis, deep vein thrombosis, and epileptic seizures, I had been taking 125 mg of oxycodone every day for relief. I never enjoyed taking these medicines due to the abuse potential that I heard reported every day on the national news. My goal was to remove these from my life, I tried getting myself off these by myself without help and I experienced withdrawals that I never want to feel again. I tried and tried with no success … I visited Organic Remedies for the first time in April 2018 and had a pleasant conversation with the pharmacist. He suggested an option for an alternative approach to my addiction which was a combination of a 1 to 1 ratio capsule of THC and CBD and a dose from a vapor pen which I purchased and returned home and began the new treatment. I am so very excited to say that in one month, opiates were completely removed from my life without one single withdrawal symptom. I could not believe how well this worked for me. I told my 3 different doctors who take care of me and they too were amazed and very happy for me. I pray for the millions of adults and youth who are addicted and abuse these horrible opiates to seek medical marijuana as a 100% positive option to free themselves and return to a happy and wonderful life.
