EPISODE 52

Q: I’m 25 and have dealt with anxiety for most of my life. I’ve also had terrible depressive episodes since I’ve turned 20. Sometimes cannabis helps with the symptoms, but a lot of times it makes them worse. I’ve learned to stay away from sativas and I smoke a LOT of CBD. I guess my question is, do you still take the anti-anxiety/depression medication now that you regularly smoke? If you have, have you ever smoked without taking the medication? Is there a difference? I’m debating taking a low dose for my anxiety to see if it helps at all, but I don’t know how smoking and taking medication is going to mix. Thank you so much!

    Thank you so much for answering my question!! I love how even after all of these years of being on this medication you don’t feel like you’re as dependent on it and can lower the dose. One of my biggest issues with medication is that people always tell me once you go on it, it’s REALLY hard to get off of it. I’ve tried to deal with my anxiety myself but 2017, if anything, has taught me that I don’t have the tools to fix myself on my own just yet. Hopefully I’ll find the right balance and can start living anxiety free soon!
