Actually, I have suffered from anxiety my whole life. Recently it's gotten so bad that medication wouldn't work. I would wake up at all hours of the night feeling anxiety and having panic attacks for no reason so I started drinking more and more. Since pot is now legal in Chicago, I went and got me some. Now I haven't smoked since 2011. Maybe here and there but not on the regular. Since I've been smoking again, my anxiety has slowly subsided. I can sleep at night! I feel much more happier than I have in years! So just comes to show, it's not bad like the media says it is. Some people need it. And I'm an example of it. Thank you Illinois

Thanks to Cannabis...,
I’ve been able to stay away from alcohol. No more hangovers! I actually do things on the weekend instead of get shit faced drunk and sleep-in ’til noon. I can remember the things I do on the weekend now! I’ve lost a few pounds from the healthier living (no alcohol, better eating, more exercise). I spend quality time with my wife instead of the rollercoaster emo time that is drinking (ex “alcohol abuser”✋). Overall, I just have a much more relaxing and enjoyable life experience.
In my past, alcohol has been a factor in being demoted, almost drowning, passing out at the wheel and crashing my truck, going to jail, fighting, and many many more terrible things (keepin’ it short for the readers sake 😉). Put simply, cannabis has probably, quiet literally, saved my life because it’s kept me from the bottle. Thank you cannabis!

I am a mother of three and in my first delivery; I had a bad epidural which caused me a spinal cord injury and another injury to it in 2003 hitting a snow mobile and then yet once again in the sugery trying to fix it.; implanted defective S1 disc causing a complete break in my L5. After 27yrs I was told that I have adhesive arachnoiditis, which is worse than cancer pain but I get to live with it. 24 pills later and Illinois finally became medical card legal. This event and change has been miraculously shorr of a miracle. After introducing medical cannabis after becoming a medical cannabis patient, I am now only on about 6-7 med medications. If I could afford the prices then maybe possibly get off the rest. Growing it yourselves is coming in January but I wont be able to do that neither. Im hoping that the recreational side will help prices. It is expensive but worth whatever I can afford. I took a leaf of Faith and it has been the best experience i've seen to work so well against some of the pain. What happened to $25 a quarter as in the 1980's. The plant hasnt changed and yet the price has? Admire what your organization and what your mission stands for. Unity of people. Thank you.
I had Internal inflammation that would just keep reoccurring with their Rx for months, internal hemorrhoids, I made the switch to cannabis and haven’t had an issue since. It was getting so bad I would bleed out of my digestive tract and after a few short weeks of normal weed smoke, it’s gone. For good without a single occurrence.

I started using cannabis oil since May of this yr. My son passed in 2014 and I went into seclusion. When I did decide to re-enter "society" I felt lost, scared everything that's not good. Started with CBD 2 drops in the morning and at night and I feel good now. I'm calm and I sleep better at night.

270+ since I've had a migraine, roughly 230 days since finished weaning off 26 pills a day to attempt to keep the pain below a 5. Now I vape my CBD as needed when my nerves start tingling and the pain goes away. I take a naproxen once in awhile for soreness if I'm moving around too much....which for the first time on over a decade I am actually able to be active!

Was taking various medication 's 8 or more daily got my Green Card down to blood pressure only maybe taken off them. hopefully soon
When I was really young, around ten years old. I was told I had adhd and was put on three different pills to take twice a day for my life (or so I thought at the time) as I grew older o heard tale of this plant that helps with adhd among others. I first tried it when I was sixteen because I couldn't sleep and the pills for that didn't work till it was time to wake up for school. After I smoked my first joint with my late sister, I didn't really "get high" but I passed out 20 minutes after smoking and woke up feeling great! After that I decided to do some research on the cannabis plant and found out that it could help me with almost everything. For my depression, anxiety disorder, and depression I use girl scout cookies, blue dream, white rhino and I feel like and good hybrid or sativa has the chance of helping you. For my insomnia I love nuken and almost any kush, but having asthma, I find the kush strains tend to make me cough/chock a little more.

While living in Colorado I had a medical card. I was able to go from 80 lbs to 100lbs because I had an appetite again. It gave me my life back after suffering from PTSD and anxiety and depression. I was pain free from arthritis in my hands, knees shoulders and back. I had to relocate to Texas and have went backwards until recently when I was able to get CBD full spectrum oil. The lies and propaganda that has been indoctrinated for years making a God given miracle illegal should be criminal
Wife was diagnosed with chrons disease and was on an absurd amount of pain pills morphine 4 times a day and liquid morphine as needed through the day..... I brought home some mmj and she wouldnt talk to me for a few days... she finally tried it and damn near all symptoms have been better if not gone and with her last dr appt she has officially been in remmision... she is off of at least 15 meds since then I have multiple sclerosis and use it daily to keep tremors and headaches away from ms.... Lifesaver for me and my wife
I use CBD cream to control the pain in my feet from severe neuropathy. No prescription helps the pain. The Hemp cream is instant relief. I also have both knees bone on done I is the same cream to control knee pain. The CBD cream works like magic and is instant relief
