I’m sick of the side effects from my pharmaceutical medications.
Feeling lethargic is only half the battle.
Some of my medications give me dizzy headaches, while others will sometimes cause me to break out in a rash. I have one particular drug that I am prescribed and it gives me extreme nausea every single time I take it unless I swallow it on a full stomach. I have so many side effects from my pharmaceutical medications that sometimes it’s hard to separate my actual medical problems from the side effects caused by the medicines themselves. It’s a weird circular process of trying to determine what came first—the chicken or the egg. Worst of all, many of the medications that are available for anxiety problems are physically addictive. I need help with my depression and anxiety, but I’m not sure if I’m ready for the trade off that I’m forced to accept if I take the pharmaceuticals as often as they are prescribed. Around this time a close friend of mine asked me if I had ever tried CBD. He said that it is a compound derived from marijuana, but it isn’t intoxicating and psychoactive like THC. Apparently people are using CBD for mental ailments like mine, as well as for treating physical pain, epilepsy, and nerve damage. It’s legal in all 50 states and you can find high quality CBD products all over the internet. Seeing the wide variety of medical uses for CBD was impressive, so I decided to give it a shot. I bought CBD capsules from a legal cannabis CBD store off the internet. I’m finally getting much needed relief from my ongoing anxiety and depression problems. Best of all, I’m not taking a pharmaceutical medication with a bunch of physical and mental side effects.
