My dad used to be the most mellow girl on the planet, then as she has gotten older her anxiety has started to creep up, and it got to where she was downside most of the morning, snappy like, and would have trouble driving to work! My mother’s solution was to get him on medication, however she went to the healthcare workers and was prescribed anxiety pills.
My father had to get a prostate exam, wait in the waiting room for hours, and had to remember to refill her pills each month and take them.
My father hated the healthcare worker’s visit so terrible she didn’t want to go back. She also never remembered to take her pills… Once she was out, she never would call the pharmacy and then option them up. More often than not, she was off her pills. I then did some research and found that anti-anxiety relief and cannabis go hand in hand. Our state allows recreational weed. So my father didn’t even need an appointment. She just stopped in the recreational weed shop with me, but we talked to a budtender, however got him started with a vape, some oils, and off my dad went. She is a apple farmer and can vape now in the fields. She is able to get nice and relaxed throughout her workday so that the drive household isn’t a problem. She prefers taking a hit on the vape since she can have it on a lanyard for easy access. It is easy to refill once it goes out too. She can stop at the weed shop on her way to work. It has been such a better experience for him.
