I was stunned to find out that I had cancer.
It’s just the farthest thing from what I thought would ever happen to me.
There were no symptoms. I wasn’t fatigued or had experienced any weight loss. Thankfully, the cancer was detected during a regular annual visit. And of equal thanks, I live in a state where I can have access to medical cannabis through a cannabis dispensary. Figuring out how to get a medical marijuana card was one of the first things I did once I got my diagnosis. The marijuana regulations weren’t that tough and I was able to get access to cannabis products pretty quickly. That was a blessing. And medical marijuana is a blessing as well. The cannabis flower products I use are getting me through my treatment regimen. The chemo is made especially more tolerable using the medical marijuana. I experience much less severe nausea with the medical cannabis. And that allows me to continue to eat a healthy diet which is super important to my body. It takes a total commitment for me to get cancer free and into remission. There have been times where I feel overwhelmed and anxious about my situation. But the medical cannabis also helps me with that. When I use the cannabis flower products, there is a more focus on hope and healing. Medical cannabis reduces the bad, unproductive thoughts to a minimum. And the people at the cannabis dispensary always raise my spirits as well. They are pulling for me and make sure that they adapt the cannabis products to my needs.
