“I was always of the opinion that nature has a treatment for everything in a more natural and less risky way than conventional pharmaceuticals.

I used to hear it once in a blue moon, now it seems like every week I hear “It gave me my life back!”

Jacksonville Beach Medical Marijuana Clinic

– 10 months on medical cannabis
– Fibromyalgia

Using the medical marijuana has made me less dependent on my pain meds. I also have some serious issues with my digestive tract so pain meds have a tendency to upset a delicate balance that is incredibly hard to maintain. It really has made my day-to-day living so much better!
