I was for sure quite surprised when the therapist I was seeing advocated that I go to the cannabis dispensary. She thought that cannabis products might just be perfect for my anxiety and depression. I never even thought of using cannabis products. That’s because I come from a absolutely strict religious background that views marijuana as almost evil. Of course, I was indoctrinated into this way of thinking and obtained into all that junk. Soon I was dealing with a reduction in efficacy with my prescription meds, I talked to the nurse about it. There have been so multiple combinations of prescription drugs of the years that I frankly just lost count. I was once again faced with finding another medication cocktail to help manage my anxiety and depression. That’s when my therapist advocated that I consider going to a cannabis dispensary. I guess all the color drained right out of my face because he suddenly explained the benefits of medical marijuana. In our state both medical marijuana and recreational marijuana are legal. But it all started with medical marijuana of course. My nurse gave me a bunch of places to do some research when it came to the history of cannabis products. I did my research and found the data super compelling when it came to treating for anxiety and depression. Once I realized that my opposition to cannabis was clearly moot, my apprehensions vanished. I have to say I could not have been more wrong about cannabis products. But I am just so thankful for what they are doing for me as I’ve never felt better in my life.
