I have a family member who stopped taking his antidepressant and it messed him up. It was a horrible experience for his body. You don’t realize how much of an impact and how much they alter going in.

I also think that starting off with smoking oil was probably not the best idea and I’m considering trying again sometime in the future with just plain, old fashioned pot.

Everyone I know who uses it to medicate (other than me) swears up and down it’s changed everything for them for the better. Especially physical symptoms like chronic pain, headache and stomach problems.

Thanks for sharing your experience. Its given me a lot of insight, and food for thought.
