Evan T. – March 2019
I started using cannabis medicinally in March of 2018 because I suffered from widespread fibromyalgia, ptsd, and gastroparesis.
I prefer vaporizing and combusting dried herb, and also use CBD tinctures and cartridges. I’ve tried other methods of administration, but none of them have helped me manage my nausea and chronic pain like flower has.
When I’m nauseous and can’t eat, I take a couple of hits and 5 minutes later I begin feeling hunger cues, and my nausea goes away. With the use of cannabis and knowledge of its medical benefits, I’ve gained 35 pounds of the 50 pounds I lost over the previous year due to cyclical vomiting. I’ve been able to get enough sleep to actually feel refreshed, and have also been able to maintain pain relief from my cannabis products. Overall, I’m much more optimistic on my view of my conditions since treating myself with cannabis.
I feel good knowing I have access to quality medicine that remedies the symptoms of my conditions. I like staff who care about their patients and provide good hospitality. Trust is something highly abundant at Om.
My first time I visited Om went better than expected. I pictured dispensaries to be shady gray market shops. I was having terrible anxiety on the way there, and almost puked walking up the stairs of their old building. I was invited into a relaxing room with a very patient staff member, and suddenly, my anxiety ceased; relaxing my stomach. After 20 minutes or so, I was out the door and on my way home with different products to try out. After a week, I was vomiting much less and eating much more.
