Cannabis saved my life!
After having my baby I was diagnosed with postpartum depression and anxiety. Thanks to cannabis, I was able to get out of my emotional lows and take care of myself and my baby. For some people, cannabis is a gateway drug and they are right, it was the gateway to a new me! I feel that prescription drugs are valuable when used properly, but the problem is that modern medicine prescribes too much and only treats the symptoms and not the cause. My approach is holistic — I use what nature provides, not only herbs but natural foods, exercise, and rest. Prescription medications are my last resort.
Cannabis helped me restore my health.
My formula consisted of microdoses, which increased my mood enough to start exercising, which led me to abandon junk food, then more exercise… A cycle of well-being began. I became three times a state weightlifting champion and world champion of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It was my “aha” moment. Another “aha” moment was when my grandmother came to visit me in the United States. She arrived with a shoulder and an arm that she couldn’t move for months. It broke my heart to see her like this. She was always the strong one, the provider, the matriarch of the family. Grandma never smoked cannabis, and I wondered if she knew about the benefits of inhaling cannabis flower to relieve pain. There is no miracle cure, but after smoking, my grandmother began to move her arm slowly. During the following weeks, we began a routine of microdosing, stretching and resistance training. I will never forget her face of happiness and amazement when she realized that the plant she had cultivated for a long time had more benefits than she could possibly have imagined. She returned home happily, with her shoulder and arm working and painless.
I want to help women improve their health through a holistic approach to life and advocate for this homeopathic medicinal plant. I think it is important to eliminate the stigmatization of cannabis to fully understand its benefits.
