Day to day, I read threads and posts by different forum members here, and while I become more familiar with some, others are just a username. Reading this thread, I became more aware of the health problems faced by many here and it personalized the usernames more. I started thinking about the individual forum members here and their usage of cannabis. Why do they use it? While recreational for some, others need it for medicinal usage above and beyond the recreational merits it has. It's all fun and good to talk about which vapes give you lung busting hits and which glass works best, but how about how the mj affects one medicinally? And what "ailment" you have that it helps? I realized that there are some forum members that face great difficulties daily. So, I thought I would start this thread to bring out into the open some of the problems these people face, and how cannabis has helped them. I use mj to help combat pain. Not only does it help decrease the pain, it gives me a better frame of mind that helps me not think about the pain and helps me limit my usage of narcotics. How about you?
