I was diagnosed with PTSD early 2017. For years, I had been dealing with mood swings, depression mostly, very high stress and anxiety levels, mild paranoia, sleep issues, and social anxiety. I went through many doctors and therapists who would throw prescriptions at me, left and right, like a cocktail for my madness, only they never affected me the way it was planned to. After a while of misses with the medication, I tried a new alternative. I had spoken to people I knew that had been using cannabis for a while and they all said the same thing. “Try it, you’ll notice a difference.” I can say with absolute honesty, I can notice a difference.
How Marijuana Makes A Difference To Me- By Stephanie
Because I’m already prone to high anxiety and paranoia, I like to partake more in the Hybrids or full Indica strains and take advantage of their calming, stress relieving qualities. Hell’s OG (OG Kush x Blackberry Nebus), Headband (OG Kush x Sour Diesel), and Skunkberry (Skunk #1 x Blueberry) are 3 of the strains I try to keep on hand as much as possible. Hell’s for its hard hitting, smooth taste and long – lasting effects, Headband for the head high of your dreams, a nice feeling of body comfort from your head to your toes, and Skunkberry, for the times you want to taste something extraordinary and bathe in the skunky stench of awesome. It doesn’t take much of either of these strains to feel the outcome. Feel free to mix and match, there are no rules.
Thanks to the other employees here at Green Man Cannabis, I have learned so much more about the benefits of how cannabis can help me on the daily and what products, whether it be edibles, flower, or topicals/gels, CBD, CBN, etc. CBD and CBN are now part of my daily routine.
One of the things I love doing that helps give me the best of body and head high is grinding up Mystery ’98 (high cbd) with Headband (Sativa- Dom Hybrid). It gives me an almost complete stress and anxiety relief, creating a more comfortable and relaxed state of mind while also achieving the much anticipated head high, for that feel good, giddy moment we all know and love.
For relief of my symptoms throughout the day, when I don’t want the benefit of a head high, I genuinely love and appreciate the Mary’s Medicinal CBN gel pen. You just shake it a few times, squeeze a little onto the inside of your wrist and rub together with your other wrist. It definitely takes the edge off my more active symptoms, while giving me the chance to focus on my work and appreciate my environment with a new perspective, and not an anxious one.
I definitely owe my new outlook on my future to the employees at Green Man Cannabis.
