I actually copied down four A4 pages from just the comments! (excluding any names)
"I swear my cannabis has worked wonders for me. I have taken no prescription drugs, only self medicate with smoke. Great for depression, anxiety, pains overall, keeps me on a normal level - but most won't understand a brain injury and just think we are druggies😐"
"I agree! I would recommend the vape pen version!, I’ve tried many edible versions but because they take a few hours to properly get into your system, its hard to judge how much you need, I much prefer my vape pen as its a more instant relief, especially when my anxiety is high or I'm too overwhelmed! I really only micro dose with it as I dont use it to get ‘high’ and I just take 1 or 2 puffs and instantly my head stops being frantic, (A vape also means I can take it out with me and no one is the wiser 🤷🏼️)"
"I never used to use it before my ‘terry’ appeared and I made sure I did my research before hand 👍🏻👍🏻
If speaking out about using it can help someone else with crippling anxiety and PTSD then its totally worth it! Thank you Jo for talking so openly about it!! 💕💕"
"I take the CBD form of cannabis. I take no meds for my brain tumour and I do believe that its helps to keep it stable. No shame to taking it as I do believe or works. Irrespective to other think if you feel it does something for you then do it."
"I take CBD and it has kept my tumour stable since starting to take it."
"Yes, it's the cure 💚 that and magic mushrooms 🙏💐 it repaired my brain damage from being unable to work or even hold a conversation to applying as a background extra in a Hollywood movie (and I got the part!😍) I would recommend cannabis in any form to anyone 💚"
"Use it nightly. Have been for past 20yrs."
"I use it twice a day and do pretty well...( Sometimes more). It just depends on what your need is. For some people it does not take much at all. For me I have mental health and pain management issues. But I can tell you I have not had a migraine in two years."
"Edibles are the ONLY thing that helps me sleep."
"My dad is a massive stroke survivor, he gets his to avoid a seizure. It also helps the awful pain he gets in his “bad” side."
"I have had my medical card since 2014. Best thing to happen."
"There are two types, Sativa and Indica. Both with vastly different outcomes. Before you invest heavily, you will need to try different varieties that are prescribed to you. My mom needs Indica for her stroke injury and husband needs Sativa for his bike accident coma 35 years ago. I use CBD pain cream for my bad knees, but I work for the state, so THC is a no-go. I love the CBD!"
"I use high THC-V strains, helps with energy and focus."
"I use it daily. Helps to ground my flighty brain."
"Yes, it's the only thing that makes my headaches go away."
"I’m taking capsules best thing even if it’s for a decent sleep xx"

This book Medical Cannabis was also really helpful in reassuring me cannabis was safe to try, and I will look at these other books recommended in their further reading - The Cannabis Encyclopedia and The Cannabis Grow Bible, when I need to find more information on growing.
