I use medical marijuana products to help with my PTSD symptoms. I had a very traumatic childhood and both of my parents abused my brother and I when we were young. Eventually they ended up in prison for 5 years and my brother and I went to a foster home. At first, both of us were in separate homes. My brother wasn’t doing very well on his own, so the state worker decided to place both of us in the same home. Eventually we ended up with a mom that adopted both of us and gave us a loving and traditional home. Mom sent both of us to a therapist so we could talk about our childhood. The therapist told my mom that I was suffering from PTSD. I talked with a therapist twice a week for 6 years. I started taking medication when I was 17 years old. I was depressed frequently. The doctor felt a daily pill would help with the depression. Unfortunately, the pills made me feel suicidal. I stopped taking them and didn’t try anything else. When medical marijuana products were legalized across the state, I decided to visit a dispensary. I spoke with someone in the store about the PTSD symptoms and depression. The contender helped me pick out a couple of different items. Most of the Cannabis products were sativas. The budtender told me that sativa cannabis products are uplifting and energizing. Sativa cannabis products are perfect for patients suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts. I honestly didn’t expect much from the cannabis products, but they help a great deal.
