medical cannibis for the flue.


I'm going to the doctor today because I've come down with a nasty flue. One that has every cell in my body aching. Chills, fever, a sore, swollen throat and body aches that kept me from sleeping. I couldn't take Motrin, because I couldn't eat and the Motrin hurt my stomach. I was in a world of hurt.

Luckily, my local dispensary is only 2 blocks away. I was so sick that I barely drove there. I hobbled in, and they immediately knew I needed help and let me go before anyone else. I bought some tea that was a blend of peppermint and medical grade cannabis. I also bought a couple of throat lozenges that were medicated as well. I went home, threw the tea bags in a quart of boiling water and kept it next to my bed. I sucked on the lozenges to ease my screaming throat. Before, the slightest noise, light, or touch just brought waves of pain. I just had to lay there curled up in the fetal position. Within 30 minutes, my aching body was eased. I actually felt well enough to sit up and watch some t.v. and then sweet sleep.

Today I actually feel able to study and take my final. Yay! I won't fail my class and it's because of marijuana. Stuff that in your pipe and smoke it.

caution: may cause one to ponder the universe

Oh my goodness, I'm sorry that you were so sick. You sounded positively awful from the way you described it in your post. But it's good your feeling better. Lol, especially if it was marijuana that did the trick. :)
