Choosing Cannabis As Your Medicine Of Choice
Choosing to use cannabis is a personal choice. If you are lucky to
live in a legal state you have access to information, doctors,
coaches and marketing events about strains, products and consumption
methods. I only recommend using cannabis when you know what you are getting.
Trying to use cannabis in an illegal state can be a roller coaster because your options are often limited and you don't always know what you are getting. I've been through it and it's not always fun!
It would be impossible for me to tell you what strains and products will
work for mental health issues, chronic pain or even sleep. I couldn't
even tell you the best way to consume cannabis unless I worked with
you directly. But I also didn't create MJS to just give you the answers.
Because of how our government and society still treats cannabis, using
cannabis becomes a personal experiment on yourself. And thankfully cannabis is safe, no one has died from it. However, I always strongly recommend to be honest with your doctors and work with them when possible.
What I can help you with is simplifying all the information that is out there, so you can make the educated decision if cannabis is right for you and what will work best for you and maybe your family.
Cannabis is a safe plant, when used correctly. Use the information provided as a starting point and the most important thing you can do for yourself is to document the effects! I offer downloads on my Etsy store.
