    Hi All, I just want to ask if anyone ever tried using medical cannabis as an alternative meds? I have read many articles about medical marijuana and how it can help you in terms of chronic pain, glaucoma, eating disorder/anorexia, anxiety disorders and panic attacks, inflammation, even cancer and a lot more. Like this article about a marijuana strain snowcap from Cbd and thc are also new to me and I don’t even smoke. If this is true I cant find any solid conclusive evidence that speaks to its efficacy. Any personal experience or testimonial would be highly appreciated. Thanks

      Hi Daniel,

      There is a lot of research that suggests cannabis helps ease symptoms of mental illness. Since it’s a fairly new treatment, I always recommend people work with a trained professional who understands how it works and the side effects that may be associated with it.

      We’re always open to hearing stories and receiving new information, so let us know if you learn anything! Thanks!
