Benefits of Medical Cannabis: As Experienced by Some of Our Patients

My name is Kevin Pearman and I suffer from a terrible disease called “Ankylosis Spondylitis”, an autoimmune disease with high levels of inflammation and pain. 

I was diagnosed in 2014 by one of South Africa’s top rheumatologist Dr Washeed Wadee from Sunninghill hospital - a day that I will never forget. 


This began my journey into understanding what CBD was all about.  

The last 5 years I have used my body / mind and soul as a case study on what actual works (medicine / natural essential oils) and I can therefore state that CBD and THC are not a miracle molecule.
