i had to stop taking cannabis 13 months ago not that it had any side effects but because my employment restricts the use of cannabis based products in the work place and in our spare time .

Pain can be gone or manageable in seconds to minutes, I can wipe out any bouts of fatigue in seconds, I eat, without it I have zero appetite and I sleep, on cannabis insomnia is not an issue. Which means everything else is easier to deal with. But I have to be a criminal to use it and it is very costly. My illnesses have taken my life away, I can't work, I can barely walk, but cannabis gives me hope of some sort of a normal life without persistent torture.

3 years ago I was so unwell I had to sell my travel agency business. At that time I was taking prescribed Gabapentin, diazepam, codeine, naproxen, fluoxetine and lansoprazole. I was in severe pain, couldn’t walk far, used crutches when I did and had no energy plus severe brain fog. I began using cannabis to treat pain symptoms and found relief enough to begin physio and Pilates plus swimming. My health slowly improved.

I am a 31 years old medical cannabis patient, living in London since 2015, who suffers from Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, depression and anxiety.

The last 11 years were an unending nightmare for me, caused mostly by Crohn’s disease and more recently by fibromyalgia, until I “discovered” and tried for the first time cannabis. It was literally a life changer!

In July 2013, I found out I had Ovarian Cancer. I was extremely lucky in the sense that it was Stage 1A which means it hadn't spread at all, and it was completely removed in a biopsy during emergency surgery. I've attended monitoring by way of blood tests and ultrasounds ever since.

For the past 3 years I have been prescribed Tramadol but only use it very sparingly in the evening if pain becomes intense. I have found that by using a very small amounts of cannabis I can go weeks or months without using Tramadol at all and only taking paracetamol.
