I had been on prescription sleep aids for 20+ years and really wanted to kick the pill. My General Practitioner suggested medical marijuana, with my prescription in hand, I discovered Doc MJ where I met Sharon for my intake and then with Dr. Frank Russo for my consultation. Dr. Russo has been instrumental in helping me navigate the different strains and different forms of medicine to find the right combination for my needs. I am thrilled to be off the pills for over a year have been sleeping comfortably! Now I wake up rested and energetic and get to start my day with the sunrise! #sleepinginfortlauderdale
