How CBD and THC helped Nathan Gambill go from 300 lbs. to benching 300 lbs. | Spina bifida | Scoliosis

We're well aware of the stigma and negative stereotypes attached to CBD, THC, recreational marijuana, and even medicinal marijuana. If you use these products you might be labeled lazy, irresponsible, and unreliable by family, friends, employers, colleagues, and even healthcare providers. If you're a person who feels people who use cannabis products turn into lazy potheads, we'd like you to meet our customer Nathan Gambill, @ironwheelz on TikTok. Nathan first came into our store because, in his own words, "I'm handicapped, I have spina bifida, and with spina bifida comes a lot of different things...I have disconnection in my nervous system, so that causes things like anxiety, mental health things like that, and these products seem to be great for that. That's one thing. And I didn't want to take a long list of medications from my doctors, so I thought, something more natural. And along with spina bifida comes things like body deformations...for me scoliosis, severe chronic pain, the nervous system becoming overwhelmed and just kind of failing on me..."

We're not claiming that CBD and THC products are THE reason Nathan's life has changed so much for the better. Nathan is a highly motivated, no excuses type of guy who has to work harder than anybody to live his best life and accomplish goals, and according to Nathan, these products have helped him along the way. The extreme amount of medication Nathan was taking for his conditions robbed him of his motivation, "when you're taking a bunch of medication you don't want to do anything, you can't do anything, you're just out of energy, you want to lay around do nothing, eat...well, that's what I did. That's partially why I wanted away from it, I just kept going and didn't care at the time. And now, I can be active, and I can bench press 300 lbs. and push through literal mountains on my wheelchair, and these products have helped Nathan continue to do that."
