After a surgery to separate his fused colon and bladder, Britnell began using medicinal cannabis, and it changed his life.
You can see the dramatic difference from the photo at the top of the page, with the image on the left showing Britnell after surgery, and the image on the right taken six months later, all while he was using medicinal cannabis.
“As far as my own health goes, cannabis is nothing new for me, but having consistent access to quality, lab tested edibles and suppositories has revolutionized my healing process,” Britnell wrote in October.
Taylor said Britnell’s healing was expedited by discovering the Saskatchewan Compassion Club, where he could purchase medicine outside of Health Canada‘s confusing system and had access to extracts and edibles that the government prohibits patients from using.
Now healthier than he had been in years, Britnell began working at the compassion club, helping patients going through the same issues with Crohn’s he had.
“I literally spend my days passing on the two things that have made the biggest difference in my health (fitness and cannabis), to those who truly need it,” Britnell wrote.
“We saw him smile again for the first time in a very, very long time,” Elliott said. “He got his life back and he wanted to share it with others.”
