I am Army veteran that suffered lots of traumas coming home and being diagnosed with PTSD major depression disorder anxiety chronic pain was the most difficult thing to deal with and as a medical professional. I thought my profession was doing me a favor by giving me copious amounts of opiates and benzodiazepines and all the while I was slowly dying and looking at my life from the outside always in a fog. I finally took control of my own circumstances and started to slowly wean myself off of all of the medications with purely cannabis. I didn't go to a treatment center nor did I want to I had a family I had to attend to. I was not going to waste any more time I had already spent years in a fog. I used cannabis to get off of all of my pharmaceutical meds and I learned about the plant from the ground up. I learned to break the plant down and consume in multiple different way. What I didn't know as how to dose and how to explain it or the mechanism of action of why. There's so much information I'm such a learning curve that I feel it's only fair to share what I've learned without my patients having to deal with the consequences of overindulging and being free of all pharmaceutical medicines.
