“I have patients with a range of pain syndromes who have failed all their other treatments and for whom Herbal Cannabis has been the only reasonable option that they have that controls their symptoms,” – Dr. Ware.

CASE STUDY – HOW MEDICAL CANNABIS SAVED FIBROMYALGIA PATIENT
“For a year, I was battling horrible Fibro leg body pain.”
“I did a lot of research on MMJ. I heard that hemp CBD oil was working for an awful lot of people and there were a lot of studies saying that CBD was good. I used the drug Flexeril to knock myself at nighttime, but that drug was useless for daytime, because I was way too dopey to function, so during the day, I had to live with the pain.”
“Once I got my CBD oil, I used it sublingually (under my tongue) every couple of hours. It started working hour by hour more and more. After day 1, almost all the pain was gone. After I used up the bottle, I bought some other CBD product but it didn’t work, I got scammed and found out there was not much CBD in the product. Now I’m wiser and look carefully at the label and who I buy from. Based on my experiences, I would say that everyone with Fibromyalgia pain should try CBD oil – but make sure it’s the good stuff!” MMJ Patient Name withheld (paraphrase)
