Reasons Why I Have My Medical Cannabis Card

Aloha, So I have a few people ask me why I have my medical Cannabis card and one reason is because in 2005 I had a full Patella (knee) reconstruction and if I stand for a prolonged amount of time or use my knee too much it can become pretty painful so I smoke to relief some of that pain and swelling.

Another reason is because in 1999 I had a Traumatic brain injury (TBI) I made a full recovery but the doctor told me there is a slim chance I could have a seizure I only had one since then, what I thought was one in 2010. So I also use it to prevent those just in case. I think cannabis helps with my stress also and if I cannot sleep I smoke sometimes. That is pretty much it, I mainly smoke it for the knee pain.

These are some qualifying conditions to be able to get your Cannabis Medical 329 card in Hawaii.
