Meet Jasmin Thomas 

On December 1st, 2015 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, which means that I have a degenerative autoimmune disease affecting the nerve endings in my brain and spinal cord.

My first prominent thought (which, I can assure you, was not blasé) was that there’s no point of crying over spilled milk: I’ve always been an ‘everything-happens-for-a-reason’ kind of person, and so I will find a natural way to manage my symptoms and get on with it.

I wasn’t able to accept any of the ‘disease modifying’ pharmaceutical drugs I had been offered, so, through extensive research and reading, I discovered cannabidiol (also known as CBD). CBD oil has changed my life – easing a lot of the painful and frustrating symptoms of MS.

The more I researched the diversities of the cannabis plant and its medicinal extracts, the more excited and grateful I felt. This knowledge is invaluable and has changed my life. Through having MS, I have discovered something that I could become wholly passionate about and have found, in medical cannabis, an industry where I really feel I can be my authentic self and truly help others.
