I have struggled with anxiety for most of our life. I see a therapist, and talk about different strategies for dealing with our anxiety, but it is hard for me to implement them in a real-world situation when I am experiencing anxiety in real time. I have been to a psychiatrist as well, and tried different prescription medications, they officially leave me groggy and unmotivated, which is absolutely disruptive to my job as a case director for a law firm. I was talking about my struggles with my therapist, and since I was not a fan of the medication, he proposed that I try cannabis edibles for my anxiety. Cannabis infused edibles give a dose of THC, the active ingredient in cannabis, that is able to be processed orally. Cannabis edibles also come in several different strains as well as flavors! The cannabis dispensary near me carries hundreds of different cannabis infused edibles, from gummies as well as lollipops, to cookies and brownies. I spoke with a budtender about my reason for trying cannabis, and he pointed me to a package of gummy squares. One of the most convenient things about cannabis edibles is that they are clearly dosed for accurate measurement. The next morning, I ate one of the gummies after lunch, because I was starting to feel my anxiety creeping up. I tried our best to focus on our work, and before I knew it, I had finished all of my emails. I didn’t even notice the small amount of THC, but it was enough to curb my anxiety while I was at work. If you struggle with anxiety, head to your local dispensary to see if cannabis edibles are right for you!
