I use marijuana to help me cope with PTSD

PTSD can be caused by a lot of odd traumas, but the symptoms can be odd from person to person, when I am having problems with ptsd, sporadically it can trigger a panic attack… I never think when a panic attack is going to hit me, because sporadically I do not realize there has been a trigger… Panic attacks can cause me to sweat, shake, get a headache, or even have chest pain.

I have also had drastic episodes of panic that have caused me to completely faint.

I saw a medical professional when I was younger & the medical professional told me that there wasn’t anything he could do about the panic attacks unless I wanted to go to a therapist. My mom didn’t want me to see a therapist & I didn’t start talking to someone until I was in our 20s, then that medical professional suggested trying medical marijuana to cope with the panic attacks & PTSD symptoms. I didn’t think a lot about marijuana at the time, although I was happy to get more information from a treatment facility & dispensary nearby. I got to go inside & meet with a specialist to discuss our medical problems & treatment & how marijuana could be an effective choice for me; After I got more information about medical marijuana, I made the decision to try some gummies from a local dispensary. The gummies had 10 mg of thc. I actually didn’t need that much for the first dose, but it absolutely did help when I was starting to recognize anxiety & fear. I respectfully dose with marijuana products to keep the fear & panic from controlling our weekly life.
