I was able to sleep more soundly and I was able to access things with my therapist that I hadn’t been able to do prior
I was a soldier for what I thought were all the right reasons. However, like most of us, I sort of romanticized what fighting a war was without fully understanding the realities. Had I fully understood those realities, I’m not exactly sure that I would have made the decisions that I made. But that is another question. What I do know is that medical marijuana is really helping me when it comes to dealing with my PTSD. I came home from the combat overseas a completely changed human. There were too many traumatic episodes to count. And I was locked up with fear, paranoia and a range of guilt, rage and sadness. Then I found a great therapist and a wonderful support network. This has really changed my situation for the better. And medical cannabis has been an instrumental tool is taking care of all of that. I was skeptical at first when it came to going through the marijuana regulations so I could figure out how to get a medical marijuana card. But once that was done and I got to the cannabis dispensary, the rest was easy. With guidance from the legal weed store staff and the help of my support network, I started using cannabis flow products. The results came quickly. I was able to sleep more soundly and I was able to access things with my therapist that I hadn’t been able to do prior. But mainly the medical marijuana allows me a perspective that is hopeful. Trips to the legal weed shop are important to my well being and I’m just thankful to have access to medical cannabis.
