I’m in my early 50’s and was diagnosed with what they called clinical depression when I was a senior in high school.
By the time I was midway through college, I was on the new generation of antidepressant meds.
There was some initial help from these meds. But it waned and I never saw good results again. Then I turned to medical marijuana after all these years. What is happening for me regarding my anxiety and depressions is nothing short of remarkable. I have never felt better in my life. If only I had realized the medical marijuana benefits for depression and anxiety earlier. But I didn’t. In large part, that’s because I think I sort of just resigned myself to a life that is uncomfortable, lonely, scary and largely unhappy. This wasn’t so much a conscious decision as it was something that sort of just happened over time. But a friend was persistent with cannabis information. Finally, I started paying attention and the facts about cannabis products became very clear to me. I took care of the marijuana regulations and got myself to a marijuana dispensary. And from there, it’s been nothing but a shining delight and an example of how things can change when you least expect them. Once I started using the cannabis flower products, the results were almost immediate. I suddenly felt a sense of almost innate joy and hope. It was akin to feelings I had when I was just a little boy which incidentally was really the last time I was happy. Medical cannabis is giving me back that cosmic or innate spark we come to life with.
