Guest Article from Justin, Thanks Justin
My personal experience with medical marijuana…
As some of us have experimented with marijuana in our younger years, my generation always split the gap between pro and anti-marijuana legislation.
There was always a debate in social gatherings and political platforms alike. Sometimes leading to unfair stigma and judgement.
Naturally I was elated when my state legalized the herb for medicinal use and small grows.
About a year ago I was approved and started using cannabis to treat PTSD, severe depression and anxiety. The results were amazing compared to the pharmaceuticals that were being pushed to me and changed almost like the weather.
Using the right combination of relaxing and focusing strains for day/night use has cut my prescription drug usage down to half and still dropping with every checkup.
Most people can’t afford to pay outrageous prices for designer flower in pretty packages and growing your own medicine keeps the impact off your wallet while providing a fulfilling hobby for a great payout. I’ve started growing in a small grow tent and have found the whole endeavor to be pretty fun and fulfilling.
Though it took some research and beginners mistakes to get the ball rolling, I’m able to produce my own medicine without hassles of lines and prices. Keep at it and it will become like second nature.
Providing things keep improving at their current level I hope to be pharmaceutical free by the end of the year. Thanks to this gift of a plant my life has changed for the better on all fronts.
I feel the best I’ve felt in years and have more focus and energy than I could hope for with the most refreshing rest to recharge the old battery.
So I guess the point to all this rambling is to keep an open mind and remember that what works for you may be different from the next person. Give yourself the chance to improve by means that others may find controversial.
Our dependency on pills to make everything better that give you worse side effects than the conditions they treat sometimes holds back the progress of refining the natural gifts we have used for millennia.
With daily life comes incredible stress and it is more important than ever to be able to make an effort to improve our quality of life. If marijuana can give you that relief and let you relax and enjoy your life, I’d say you deserve it.
Times are crazy enough and people need to keep in mind that mental health is just as important as physical health. Just a little time to kick back and listen to music or listen to a book, maybe take a hike and enjoy a little fresh air and sunshine can change your perspective completely.
I honestly have to thank the people that are trying to make this treatment more mainstream and cutting the stigma away. They put in amazing work and provide us with a resource far better than years ago.
In short, my life is much more enjoyable because of medical cannabis. I’m happier, healthier and more fun to be around.
I’m able to enjoy more social interaction and be around people for the first time in what seems like forever.
Anyways thanks for listening to my success story and opinions.
