When my state passed a law legalizing medical marijuana in 2017, I was eager to become a patient as quickly as possible.
The first doctor I visited pocketed everyone’s money and then closed the practice before giving out any recommendations for actual marijuana products.
Thankfully, the second doctor I found has been my doctor ever since, and he never questions my need for strong doses of cannabis with a high THC content. He told me that PTSD is a difficult disorder and sometimes you need strong cannabis to disrupt the thought loops that you can easily get mired in. For the longest time I assumed that I always needed high THC products, but after trying some hemp CBD flower joints that my friend ordered from a grower in Oregon, I am interested in using CBD long term. A lot of people mix it half and half with THC, which creates what is referred to as a ratio product. Usually the ration is one to one or two to one, it just depends on where you’re buying your cannabis or CBD oil. My local cannabis dispensary was out of CBD products for months because of the recent demand. People realize that the cannabis stores often have better CBD products than hemp retailers on the internet or in vape shops locally. Sure, plenty of locally sourced CBD and even some of the stuff on the internet is quality, but not all of it is lab tested. When my usual internet CBD supplier shut their business down, I was at a loss as to where I could find quality hemp products with lab testing reports. When I tried the CBD products at my local cannabis dispensary, I never looked back.
