Finding hope of recovery through medical marijuana

Nathan Bosgra began having symptoms of progressive encephalomyelitis with rigidity and myoclonus (PERM) syndrome five years ago. The syndrome is a neurological disorder characterized by progressive muscle stiffness and episodes of painful muscle spasms.

Battling through different treatments and medications led Bosgra to take the leap towards CBD (cannabidiol) therapy. Although first skeptical and unsure, he soon learned the benefits of cannabidiol through The Village Dispensary’s co-owner Andrea Dobbs.

Cannabidiol is one of at least 85 active cannabinoids in the cannabis plant. Bosgra says it is a great antispasmodic, anticonvulsant and it also helps reduce anxiety among other health benefits.

Bosgra entered a case study looking at the medical benefits of cannabinoids for people with his condition. Watch Surrey604 learn about his story and follow his journey towards recovery.
