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

Before I was introduced to cannabis as treatment, I struggled daily with anxiety and depression. After years of struggling with different medication and treatments, I was overjoyed to find that regular use of CBD products gave me the peace of mind and clarity I needed to enjoy life again.

Patient Process

Path to cannabis

A friend of mine worked for a medical cannabis company and offered some sample products to me to use as treatment for my anxiety.

Products Tried

I tried sativa and indica products first but the effect of those was too strong. I tried a CBD edible and the mild effects of CBD were the exact thing I needed.

At the height of my anxiety, I was bordering on agoraphobia. Simply tasks like shopping or going to the doctor cause me such fear that I didn't want to leave the house. Since using cannabis products I experience such peace of mind that I am willing to do try anything and enjoy my life.
