I am thankful that my anxiety and depression are on the lower end of the scale.
I’ve commiserated with folks that deal with a lot more when it comes to the effects of this condition. But I’m even more thankful that I’ve found so much benefit from cannabis flower products. I guess that smoking weed in college sort of ended up being useful. When I started seeing a new therapist, she asked me to talk about a time in my life when I didn’t suffer so much with anxiety. The only time I could come up with was when I was in college. I thought that was simply because those were carefree days where I was studying my passion and didn’t have a lot of adult responsibilities. Turns out, I was enjoying an anxiety and depression free period because I was using recreational marijuana. It didn’t even dawn on me because I didn’t even smoke that much cannabis back in the day. And it was always cannabis flower products that I used so I knew my way around marijuana. My therapist helped me realize that perhaps it would be worth my while to learn how to get a medical marijuana card. Since medical marijuana was legal, it made sense to at least see if that might help my situation. I was amazed to find that medical marijuana benefits my level of anxiety almost perfectly. When I treat using either cannabis flower products or cannabis gummies, the change in perspective is almost immediate. It’s almost like cannabis products flip a switch in my mind that allows me to differentiate between real and imagined stress. All I know is that this works for me and I’m lucky to have access to a legal weed store.
