Overall health, well-being and quality of life before medical cannabis

Before cannabis I was irritable on the best days and would frequently get in physical altercations. My overall outlook on life was bad and I was not in a good state of mind. In general I took life for granted.
Cannabis helped me to overcome my anger and patience problems and regain a positive state of mind.

I have also suffered a knee injury in which CBD has had a positive impact on my quality of life.

Patient Process

Path to cannabis

I started using cannabis as many teenagers do, in high school.

When I started using cannabis I was unaware of the positive benefits of using cannabis and was amazed by how it impacted me positively.

Products Tried

The first time I tried cannabis I smoked it and continue to smoke it to this day. In the past 2 years I have started using caramel and gummy edible products as I can get them with a consistent and reliable dose of THC and CBD which is hard to get through smoking.
