I really begrudge the time, effort and money
I have known that I needed medical cannabis for years. My anxiety was getting worse and worse as I aged. I didn’t want to do the traditional doctor visit and pill route. I was concerned about the side effects and I wasn’t totally keen on being medicated. I realized early on that the right choice for me would be medical weed. It took me a long time to finally get my prescription through. Why did it take so long? There are so many steps you need to take in order to become a medical cannabis patient. You need to find a doctor that prescribes medical weed for starters. Then you need to fill out paperwork online, pay a fee and wait two weeks for your cannabis card. This doesn’t mean you get unlimited access to medical weed either. You have restrictions on amounts and types of weed. I can only access a certain amount of cannabis flower and oil. I am not permitted edibles, topicals or tinctures for example. The card doesn’t last forever either. I get a full year of being a medical weed patient. Then I need to renew the card. The whole process is starting over. I need to sit in the waiting room, answer the same questions and pay the fee again. Doing it once was really hard on me. I really begrudge the time, effort and money. Now that I have medical cannabis, it is great. I don’t know if I can make myself do it a second time around however.
