WATCH: Using Cannabis to Manage Pain & Inflammation
Surgery of any kind can be a scary thing. Something’s gone wrong with the body and the doctors are telling you the only way to fix this is by cutting you open. Sometimes surgeries are successful, sometimes they’re not – and recovery is almost always painful.
To help you manage the pain, most doctors will write you a prescription for an opioid pain killer like Oxycodone, Gabapentin, or Fentanyl.
Although these pharmaceuticals can be helpful, they can also be highly addictive, even deadly.
Opioid prescriptions and opioid overdoses have quadrupled in the past 15 years, according to the CDC. An average of 91 people die each day from a fatal opiate overdose. This issue have affected communities from coast to coast. Even in the cases where patients avoid opioid addiction, these pharmaceuticals still have harsh and unpleasant side effects like nausea, constipation, shortness of breath, and more.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, 48 million inpatient surgeries were performed in the U.S. in 2009. While not all of these surgeries included a follow-up prescription to opioids, for the ones that do, we wonder: Is there another option? A better option? Something that’s non-addictive, all-natural, and won’t kill you if you take too much?
On Thursday, March 30, join Swami Select co-founder, Nikki Lastreto via free live-stream presented by Green Flower Media. Learn what you need to know about using cannabis for pain management before and after surgery.
Hear firsthand how Nikki was able to wean herself off opioids after surgery thanks to cannabis. She’ll tell you exactly how she did it (and what she learned along the way). She’ll reveal opportunities for patients and doctors to work together within Western medicine to combine cannabis with traditional therapies for better pain management and faster healing.
This is a very personal live class – a must-watch for patients, clinicians, caregivers, nurses, physicians, and cannabis vendors. You’ll learn:
How to manage pain pre- and post-op, using cannabis in place of, or conjunction with, traditional therapies.
How to find a doctor who will embrace your personal choice for cannabis instead of opiates.
What type of natural products you should consider using as alternatives to harsh pharmaceuticals.
Contraindications to be aware of when using CBD/THC and what to avoid.
How to talk to your doctor and other healthcare professionals about the benefits of cannabis for pain management. They might be more curious than you think).
And much more.
