Shahs of Sunset star, Golnesa GG Gharachedaghi is willing to try anything to alleviate her pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis. She is now speaking out how turning to medical marijuana is her attempt to “do anything to get well.”
Rheumatoid arthritis, also known as, RA, is an inflammatory disease that occurs when your immune system attacks the body’s joints, causing symptoms that may include pain, swelling, stiffness.
GG was first diagnosed with RA in 2010 and has even undergone chemotherapy to stop the pain, however, it didn’t help. Will this more controversial treatment be the difference? GG recently spoke about her new medical pursuit at the DailyMail.com’s Summer White Party in West Hollywood where she confirmed she’s having a “bad time health wise.”
“I was feeling a lot better a few months ago and right now I’m having a really bad time health wise,” GG shared. “’I’m trying to take a different approach as everyone was always talking about CBD [cannabis oil] as a treatment for inflammatory disease so I’m trying that this time around.”
GG has even taken her mom to the California marijuana dispensary for her oil.
“[It] is weird I never thought the day would come that I would walk into a dispensary with my Mom asking for CBD oil. It’s just like so weird but I’m trying to do anything I can to get well.”
Although GG’s been accused by cast member Reza Farahan for faking her disease, she is trying to stay positive and help others.
“I’m working really hard for a huge charity event, it will be my first one, and I teamed up with Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.” GG added, “So I’m kind of keeping my head strong and thinking about the kids.”
