Treating menopause with cannabis
I now use cannabis vapes to treat our symptoms of menopause
For several years, I lived with the symptoms of menopause. I experienced drastic insomnia, where I’d lay in bed for minutes with no hope of sleep. If I somehow managed to fall asleep, I’d wake up in an minute or so as well as start the process over. Every afternoon, I was tired as well as struggled to get up as well as head to work. Along with our sleep issues, I dealt with boiling flashes, migraine headaches as well as cramps in our calves. I was unwilling to take pharmaceuticals that might lead to harmful long-term side-effects. I kept expecting the symptoms to go away. My older sister recommended that I get our medical marijuana card. I assumed the process would be severely time-consuming, hard as well as high-priced. I was pleasantly surprised. I googled as well as found a nearby nurse that assists patients with qualifying for their MMJ card. I showed up for the appointment, explained our symptoms as well as got the recommendation of the nurse. Everything else was handled really online. It cost me a couple hundred dollars although I got approved as well as had our card undoubtedly quickly. With the card, I had access to any of the local cannabis dispensaries. On the initial visit, I sat down with a budtender for a consultation. I l earned about the odd strains, consumption methods, cannabinoids as well as terpenes. The budtender gave recommendations that proved effective. I now use cannabis vapes to treat our symptoms of menopause. I focus on those strains that are higher in CBD than THC as well as typically purchase disposable vape pens. With the push of a button, I inhale as well as get fast-acting relief.
