The mental health medication that I was prescribed after my father’s untimely death was really struggling to get me through the psychological fog.
I offered it a try with multiple possibilities to see if one particular drug combination worked better than another.
In the end I kept faltering and was left wondering if there was something out there that could truly help me cope. I didn’t want to risk getting addicted to multiple medications that are prescribed for people that have severe anxiety complications like myself. I have checked out testimonials on the internet from people who had to come off these medications after developing a strong dependency, and the picture isn’t exactly pretty. Some people die if the withdrawal is serious enough. I was grateful when a buddy of mine urged me to provide cannabis a try. I had tried it once back in school, but it was fairly low quality and offered me barely any noticeable effects. When I tried it again a year ago, it was clear that I had found something that was going to enhance my life permanently. I absolutely enjoyed vaporizing cannabis flower buds that I’d get in these small glass jars from the local cannabis dispensary. After I developed a heavy tolerance, I made the choice that I should try one of the cannabis concentrates that happens to be available. I was incredibly overwhelmed—there was shatter, crumble, wax, rosin, distillate, and live resin. I really didn’t know where to start, so I made the choice to buy shatter and pick up a small vaporizer pen to inhale it. The effects came on especially strong and stayed for multiple hours. I am so relieved that I was able to find a way to enjoy the medical effects of cannabis even if I develop a decent tolerance.
