Overall health, well-being and quality of life before medical cannabis
Not good, I was on 120 Mg of Morphine twice a day for over 10 years and other opiates before that. The opiates destroyed my memory! I weaned off of the opiates over 10 months and I switched to medical cannabis. It works quite well for me. There are so many options available now.
Overall quality of life before being introduced to medical cannabis: 5
Path to cannabis
It was my only non narcotic option that I had for pain control and I refuse to take opiates ever again.
I like FSCO or RSO. it works best for me.
