Today, I got up and was excited.
I was excited because I was meeting some friends for a bike ride and then lunch. I’m 42 years old and this is the first time I’ve ever done anything remotely like this. But since I started treating my anxiety with medical cannabis, outings like this are now in the realm of possibility. I’ve been dealing with anxiety and depression since I was in junior high school. The crushing fear and anxiety that I have always experienced kept me from enjoying most any social situation. It was so bad that I actually had to go to college online. Before I started treating with cannabis flower products, I couldn’t even work inside the office to do my job. Fortunately, I work for a company that values mental health and I was allowed to work remotely from home. But that’s really no kind of life to be constantly isolated like that. The medications from doctors weren’t very helpful and I really hated all the side effects. So I ended up trying something different. I found a holistic practitioner who helped me change my life almost completely. Part of that plan included using cannabis flower products that I get from the cannabis dispensary. My therapist made it very easy and straightforward when it came to how to get a medical marijuana card. And once I started treating with cannabis flower products, it was almost like a light switch was flipped on. It was that immediate and that profound when it came to the medical marijuana benefits for my anxiety.
