I Tried Medical Marijuana For Chronic Pain

Kelsey, a Buzzfeed employee, suffers with extreme neuropathic, chronic pain condition known as trigeminal neuralgia or TN for short.

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a neuropathic pain, a type of pain that occurs when nerves are damaged or injured in the medical field trigeminal neuralgia is considered to be one of the worst pains known to mankind.

Kelsey states that “the pain of TN is comparable to severe burns, childbirth and even the bite of a bullet ant. TN was nicknamed the suicide disease because people who suffer from this would take their own lives because of the severity of the pain.”

Kelsey has had multiple surgeries on her face to try and help the pain, she has tried expensive medication and therapy treatments and botox to try and ease the pain.

She felt that she has tried everything, but her last resort was cannabis. Through study, she also found that for decades cannabis was never tabooed or seen in a negative light, until an inrush of immigrants causing racial tension which caused it to be criminalised, which then eventually lead to its historical background in medicine to be forgotten about.

Kelsey bought a lotion containing CBD oil which she rubbed around her jaw and temple area where she generally feels the most tension, and two hours later she felt that her face has never been so relaxed.

“oh my god it’s like no amount of physical therapy has given me relief for this long”.

Kelsey now knows the benefits of CBD oil and starts to question why the study and research of CBD oil isn’t fund enough and still shunned upon.

The overall results of Kelsey’s health, was that cannabis had 100% proven to give her a better quality of life. She was able to sleep better, she didn’t suffer from migraines as frequent and she explains that this journey was an incredible life changing experience.
