I am especially thankful that my anxiety and depression are on the lower end of the scale… I’ve commiserated with tons of different folks that deal with a lot more when it comes to the effects of this condition.
I’m even more thankful that I’ve found so much benefit from cannabis flower products.
I feel that smoking weed in college sort of ended up being useful, but when I started seeing a new therapist, she asked me to talk about a time in my life when I didn’t suffer with such terrible anxiety! The only time I could think of was when I was in college. I thought that was because those were carefree times where I was studying my passion and didn’t have a sizable amount of adult responsibilities. Turns out, I was enjoying an anxiety and depression free period because I was sometimes 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 regularly cannabis flower products that I used so I knew my way around marijuana. My therapist helped me realize that potentially it would be worth my while to learn how to get a medical marijuana card. Because medical marijuana was legal, it made sense to at least see if that might help my situation. I was pretty 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 close to being immediate. It’s sort of like cannabis products flip a switch in my mind that allows me to differentiate between real and imagined stress. All I really know for certain is that this works for me and I am lucky to have access to a legal weed store.
