To whom this may concern, I am writing this letter to let you and your employees know what a huge difference your Mad hatter coffee line has made for me. I am a 29 year old man who was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gerigs Disease) about 3 years ago. Since my diagnoses I have lost my ability to move, eat, and it’s now taking my voice. I’ve always had pain in my knees and shoulder but since I’ve lost my ability to move the pain has worsened. I’ve been on a high dose of Hydrocodone for the last 3 years as well as nerve pain medicine, OTC drugs and a large cocktail of holistic remedies with only partial success.
I went on Gentiva Home Care after a stint in the hospital and my nurse who was assigned to my case came in with an attitude of hope and willingness to find something that would help me. Eventually, after trial and error, she advised us to try Medical Marijuana knowing that my wife, 1 year old son and I live on a fixed income and that medicare doesn’t cover it she donated the first lump of money to go towards finding some relief.
Since I don’t smoke or take anything by mouth finding a marijuana option for pain that could be given to me through my feeding tube seemed to be a task from the get go. I tried tinctures with just CBD, Just THC and a combination of both with no success. I went on to try the bottled teas, lemonades, the CBD and THC capsules and even went as far as to try to Rick Simpson oil orally, even though I am very against taking medicines by mouth ( to avoid aspiration).
When I first tried your coffee (160mg sativa) I was weary and definitely not expecting it to make a difference. I started with a dose of 8 out of 24oz’s and found that it not only worked for my pain, but also gave me a great sense of euphoria. Since then I have cut down on my prescription pain medicine by 2/3’s and my pain level has significantly lowered. To my surprise it also helped with other symptoms that I would have never thought! It has reduced my over salivation, kept my muscles relaxed and improve spasticity in my legs and has even helped with my boredom!
I guess the point of all of this is to give you a warm THANK YOU. I know that the medical marijuana community has experienced a lot of strife and has had to combat many naysayers, but the work you’re doing truly makes a huge difference in the lives of people who have little to no options left. We appreciate so much the work you’re doing and will be buying your products for years to come!
