Linda Moreal believes medical cannabis changed her mother’s life.
Before Maria Moreal, 87, began taking medicinal cannabis for her chronic pain, she had been taking Percocets daily for eight years. Five years ago, her family doctor started her on morphine as well, which she’s been taking every day since.
Since starting on medical cannabis back in March, she’s reduced her intake of pills from four per day, down to two.
