Cannabis oil does work wonders
MUCH has been said and written about the medicinal value of cannabis oil in recent months.
Setting out to work on Tuesday morning last week, little did I know that by the end of the day, I would be making use of the much-debated substance.
Just before I got to work, walking on the pavement past the Department of Human Settlements in the Joburg CBD, I managed to twist my ankle. Anyone who has walked that pavement will know what shoddy condition it’s in.
I managed to get through my shift without any medical assistance/remedy/treatment. However, as the day went on, the pain in my left ankle intensified – so much so that I could barely climb the stairs.
My normal 10-minute walk to Gandhi Square, where I catch the bus, turned into a 17-minute ordeal. Upon disembarking from the bus, the pain was excruciating and I finally got home after finishing the last 400m stretch in about 10 minutes.
I immediately put ice on my affected ankle. My neighbour, bless her soul, noticed me hobbling and came around to ask what was wrong. I explained, and she promptly brought me some cannabis oil.
After applying it, I went to bed, still in some discomfort. I awoke the next morning, wary of not putting too much pressure on my ankle. I could feel a noticeable difference. The ankle was still swollen, but there was little pain, and I went to work.
From personal experience, I can say cannabis oil works.
