It was the middle of the night, and my friends and I were coming back from a concert.
It was an amazing show, and we were all still very excited, even though we were also very tired.
One at a time we all started to drift to sleep, including the driver! Our car veered off the road and into a ditch, flipping the car in a horrible accident. That was over a year ago, and I still have intense PTSD from the incident. Two of our friends died in that accident, and the rest of us are still feeling the effects of the damage it caused. Before this I had never used medical marijuana before, but over the last few weeks I have come to see it as a valuable tool in my recovery. My problem was mostly in the form of nightmares, which is why I loved smoking medical cannabis so much. Since I had never done it before I had no idea that medical cannabis has the effect of muting your dreams. This is very common among medical cannabis users, and whenever you take a break after prolonged use your dreams come back so much sharper and more vivid. With that in mind I started smoking medical cannabis very heavily, especially before bed, and before long I found that I could no longer remember my dreams. I might still be having horrific nightmares about the night of the accident, but thanks to medical cannabis they do not wake me up or cause me extra stress. I’ll take this as a win!
