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 sleepy or had experienced any weight loss. Thankfully, the cancer was detected while in 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 taxing and I was able to get access to cannabis products pretty suddenly. 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 even-handed using the medical marijuana. I experience much less serious 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 think overwhelmed and worried 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 constantly raise my spirits as well. They are pulling for me and make sure that they adapt the cannabis products to my needs.
