What is your personal relationship with cannabis?
Back in 2010, I had ACL surgery and was given heavy opioids for pain management. After 2 days of being on these opioids, I almost fainted in the shower because I hadn’t eaten. The opioids had completely suppressed my appetite and made me feel lethargic and somewhat lifeless.
I knew there had to be a better way, so I switched my protocol to cannabis and threw away the pills. It was then that I discovered the true healing powers of the plant – it helped with pain, with sleep, with appetite and so much more. Ever since, I have turned to cannabis to help regulate pain during my cycles, to help aid in sleep, to help boost my libido, to help manage stress and anxiety, and as a replacement to alcohol. I find that I drink less and use cannabis more both recreationally and medicinally.
