Hi it’s Joe Grumbine, CEO and founder of The Human Solution international.
For the past Several years, I have been studying how to be the best leader that I can and although I have fought this idea based on past experiences, the value of mentoring keeps coming up as a necessity to achieve potential. The skill of being a servant leader has value to everyone involved and this is what I pursue.
I began my journey of learning the power of cannabis 16 years ago at the age of 31. I had used cannabis recreationally off and on most of my life but had never looked into the health benefits. By the time I was 31 I had worked many physically taxing jobs to support my family and had injured my back a handful of times but always bounced back quickly. This came to a quick end when I felt a pain go down my leg at work one morning. I didn’t report it and continued working for almost a month more. At this point I was to the point of having trouble walking etc. and sought medical help. This was the beginning of six spine surgeries and monthly refills of opioids. I took over the course of 10 years methadone, morphine, dilaudid, oxycontin, and oxycodone. Even after copious amounts of these drugs I was always in pain. My mood was affected, my energy and worst of all was the fear of running out.
