National Psoriatic Arthritis Day

Lifestyle adjustments. Pain medications. Questions.  All three of these have one thing in common: Psoriatic Arthritis. Today, October 19th 2018 will be recognized as National Psoriatic Arthritis Day. For those who do not know, Psoriatic arthritis is a condition that combines the swollen sore joints of arthritis with psoriasis in the peripheral joints (the joints of your arms and legs, including the elbows, wrists, hands and feet), the axial skeleton (primarily your spine, hips and shoulders and commonly comes with pain. Patients with Psoriatic Arthritis often experience joint pain, swelling, lower back pain, heel pain, and limited motion.  Medicinal My Way’s (MMW) own Ambassador Gerald Major understands the pain that all arthritis patients endure and he advocates for education and fair access for medicinal cannabis for all patients. Gerald Major is a medical cannabis patient, a staunch chronic illness advocate, and an arthritis survivor.  MMW is working with Gerald to educate on the effectiveness of medicinal cannabis and its connection to arthritis. An important part of education is sharing our stories. If you have a story to share about your arthritis and medicinal cannabis we would love to hear it!
