Whenever I’m prescribed medication, my doctor is forced to slowly increase my dosage because my body gets used to the drug after months of continual use.
- This happened with antidepressants when I first took them more than seven years ago.
Although I manage great without depression medication these days, back then it was much harder. But it was frustrating because I would get used to a single dose as well as then it wouldn’t labor as well anymore. Pretty soon my doctor had to increase the dose, only to repeat the process several months later. It’s not fun taking higher doses of SSRIs because of their potential for over-firing your serotonin receptors, something that can lead to serotonin syndrome. When I had to go on sleeping aids a few years later, it was even worse. I was sad that I would experience long term side effects from the doses I was on so I looked for alternatives. This is when I found cannabis. One of my best friends told myself and others that he smokes before bed as well as gets the best sleep imaginable. I decided to visit a cannabis dispensary as well as deliver it a shot. To my amazement, I fell in appreciate with marijuana overnight. But after using cannabis flower products for over a year now, I’m feeling appreciate my tolerance is building to the effects appreciate it does with any other medication. Now I’m using cannabis concentrates because their THC pleased is much higher than that of cannabis flower products. You also get more THC in your plan faster, making the “high” much more fantastic for someone with brain chemistry appreciate my own.
