I talked to the doctor a lot when I decided to get a medical marijuana card.
The doctor gave me a lot of helpful resources and information.
He talked with me in length about the different marijuana strains and the side effects that I might feel. The doctor told me to go slow and take a small dose in the beginning. I started off with a dose of 10 mg of marijuana edibles. After one dose of marijuana edibles, I could feel some of those side effects that the doctor described. My heart rate was much faster than normal and I felt a little dizzy and wobbly. I couldn’t concentrate on anything and I was talking really fast. I also had a much healthier appetite after using marijuana edibles. The side effects were harsher than I expected. They also lasted longer than I thought they would. The dry mouth problems were probably the worst. I constantly had a drink next to my desk or armchair. The munchies were pretty rough too. I think I have gained two pants sizes since I started using medical marijuana. It took two long weeks before the side effects started to wear off and I felt better. After that time I also felt a lot of relief for the pain in my neck and my back. I use my plant medicine every day. I can tell when I skip a dose of marijuana edibles, because I wake up feeling stiff and my body aches all day. The plant medicine really works well and I am feeling the results more and more every day.
