I was relatively shy about going into the cannabis shop.
- Coming from a background that was rooted in tradition, God as well as family, there wasn’t much room for anything similar to cannabis.
Marijuana was viewed as evil in our family as well as much of our community. Even when I went to college, I didn’t have the desire to try recreational marijuana because of the stigma. I mean, I was hundreds of miles away from where I grew up as well as still, I was afraid of repercussions if I decided to use recreational marijuana. That’s the sort of stranglehold all those forced beliefs had on me. My parents did the best they could as well as brought me up the way they thought best. But it was also just wrong in a lot of ways. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer, the healthcare worker advised that I use sativa as well as indica products as a regular part of my treatment. My almost immediate response was simply that I couldn’t do that. That’s how entrenched those feelings were as well as I was in my 40’s! The healthcare worker simply helped me understand that medical marijuana was completely legal as well as an extravagant portion of the treatment plan. The indica strains would help my body deal with the nausea from the chemo. And the sativa products would be helpful in that regard as well as being a positive mental as well as spiritual component to my particular situation. I went with the healthcare worker on medical marijuana. Not only did the cannabis products get me through to remission, I have a whole modern perspective on life as well.
