Vernon's story

How I stopped 3,000 prescription pain tablets a year with Leva

In 2006 when gardening, a slipped disc triggered intolerable back pain.

The pain became so intense that Vernon was taking up to 3,000 prescription tablets per year, plus injections. “Temazepam, Tramadol, Naproxen, Fentanyl, Ketamine…I’ve been in space. It’s horrid!”

Over these years he had some 40 surgeries, Injections and nerve burnings, mostly on his spine. “The pain was unreal.”

But it was Vernon’s experiences with prescription opiates and benzodiazepines that took its toll on him most. “Everything left scar tissue. There was damage everywhere in my body. I never knew when to stop.”

Prescription medication

Medical Cannabis for Back Pain

Since 2018 it’s been legal for specialist medical consultants to prescribe Medical Cannabis for unmet clinical needs, such as chronic pain.

There’s been global research and real-world data that shows Medical Cannabis can be beneficial for people living with chronic pain, especially where other medications have failed.


Is Medical Cannabis effective?

Medical cannabis is one novel treatment that we offer. It works by acting on our endocannabinoid system (ECS). This plays a part in our pain control, sleep and mood.

Lovely Leva!

Leva have been my pain management clinic for nearly two years. They have been consistently helpful, friendly and clear. There have been no problems I can recall and they reply very quickly to any contact. Thoroughly recommended and worth every penny for their service. I have no intention of using anyone else for pain management. Keep up the good work Leva!
