My name is Alesha, and I am a Tennessee resident and business owner. I was diagnosed with scalp psoriasis 21 years ago when I was 18.
I have been on an active hunt for the past 21 years to find something that would ease my symptoms without much luck, until recently.
Six month ago I decided to give a cannabis salve and tincture a try. To my surprise, the tincture eased the golf ball sized inflammation knots in my neck for the first time in 21 years. And 12 hours after I applied the salve to my scalp, all scalp inflammation, dryness, and itch were all completely gone. I am proud to say that I was able to find relief without terrible side effects, thanks to cannabis.
The cannabis stigma that only “bad people” smoke marijuana must end. I am a college educated business owner.
Cannabis is not a street drug, it is a medicine. An illicit drug does not help your psoriasis symptoms, it triggers them.
I have personally been helped by cannabis and that’s something no pharmaceutical drug has ever been able to do, so yes I highly support medicinal marijuana in the state on Tennessee and nation-wide.
Tennessee residents deserve to feel relief like I have, and I truly hope the lawmakers will listen to the patients since they are the ones this highly effective medicine is helping.
