Pain Management- Medical Marijuana/Cannabis Authorizations
My family and I live in Washington state as a middle-class family transplanted from the South, numbering three humans and two cats. My husband works for Uncle Sam; my daughter plays her part as an adorable kindergartener; and I function as housewife and domiciliary mother. Holistic Evaluations in Kent in Washington state is my family’s preferred clinic for medical marijuana evaluations—a godsend completely worth the forty-mile drive from the Valley.
My town does not lack accessible medical marijuana-evaluating clinics and practitioners, but Holistic Evaluations surpasses my personal expectations regarding what constitutes a proper provider and thus far exceeds any inconvenience incurred in traveling. Appointment scheduling is a piece of cake; Dr. Rolando never makes me wait beyond my appointment time; and the doctor and staff treat me with respect, never making me feel patronized or insignificant. I always feel valued and important. The Naturopath addresses my concerns succinctly and thoroughly. Services received are affordable and reasonable, and the clinic sits in a gorgeous part of the city.
My daughter has Autism, a speech delay, and ADHD. As a two year-old, she could not speak. She did not answer to her name. Now she is about to be six. She is in kindergarten, and she can read some words, articulate some things, and is learning some mathematics. All thanks to a combination of speech therapy, ABA, and the addition of medicinal marijuana, especially with a relatively high CBD content.
She sleeps at night—I cut her dose of melatonin by more than half. No more late nights of her staying up until 4 am and waking up at 6 am. We tried Ritalin and Adderall, and different versions of the same chemicals. We have tried various probiotics and different things suggested by anecdotes of moms and dads with autistic kids. I put up with constant screaming—sometimes up to over ten hours a day—which the ADHD drugs worsened.
I got my daughter back.
Thank you, medical marijuana.
Thank you, CBD.
Thank you, Dr. Rolando, and the team at Holistic Evaluations in Kent.
Before finding medical marijuana, I was on a lot of different opiate pain medications. None of which helped and/or dealt with terrible side effects from using opiate pain medication. I have used MMJ in place of the pain medication since October 2016. I enjoy the "side Effects" of MMJ Where as the side effects of long term opiode use is dangerous. I'm Thankful I have found something that's helpful without all the negative side effects. Also I recommend MMJ to those who suffer from PTSD, It's helped tremendously. MMJ Has reduced my anxiety, has helped me sleep without having nightmares or sleep walking. MMJ has improved my overall quality of life.
MMJ has had a major impact on my health in a positive way. Nights, mornings and day's I would be in constant pain. To reduse this feeling, i Started to consume MMJ. Now I can sleep through the night without feeling pain.
I started using MMJ after struggling to get my A1C & bloodsugars under control. I was injecting insulin 2x per day. After using MMJ I have been OFF Insulin now for almost a year.
