🌿Happy liberation day, Madame Cannabis!🌿
I digress from your usual feed of yarn porn for something close to me heart.
❤ From today onward, you don't need a medical prescription to legally obtain and partake of #cannabis in Canada. As a #spoonie & sufferer of #chronicpain, this means that access to life changing pain management is easier and accessible without having to attend yet another doctor's appointment. 💯 Legal and accessible, yes. But the stigma is still there: I myself suffered much longer than necessary because of that stigma and fear of taking cannabis. #THC triggers my anxiety and depression, as it does for many. I was reluctant to try #CBD products (the cannabinoid in cannabis that makes you relaxed, cozy, and pain free) because of a fear of those side effects. I only tried it a few weeks ago, and if the stigma wasn't there I might have found relief 10 months ago when my head injury occurred.💀
🎁Let's share what doctors won't. Let's increase awareness of the effectiveness of cannabis. Let's work to fight the #stigma that still abounds now that people can come out of the cannabis-closet.
