Okay so I’m in probably an unusual situation compared to a lot of people I’d imagine.

 

I found cannabis in my mid teens and immediately found a helpful solution to my as yet undiagnosed severe anxiety and depression. I’ve always had mood swings and had been known to be violent. Cannabis seems to level me out to a place I can be rational and have an actual thought process.

 

The unusual situation is that I actually stopped for a couple of years around three years ago, I felt I’d be okay, and was but slowly felt myself returning to my “old” roots. The wife (actually been together since I was 17 now “cough” later 40’s). So as I had converted to vaping only in my break I started vaping cannabis again and honestly I’d rather not stop again. Tried pharma and actually made me worse.

 

So my conundrum is that I never told my wife I started again. Or that I am growing. I confessed to vaping it yesterday and let’s say I’m lucky to have my dangly bits in tact but I have a hard fight ahead to justify what she sees just  as “drugs” “dodgy dealers” and “evil”.

 

I made a slight break through I think by asking if it was medically prescribed would that be an issue? She said she wasn’t sure. Bty she and I smoked together for years so deep down she knows the plant ain’t bad but it’s the surrounding shit it seems.

 

First and foremost I need to try and find  some evidences of cannabis helping to medicate and relieve anxiety and depression. Happy to have other info that might help persuade.

 

At my wits end here I’m really struggling to keep it together as can’t lose my life partner but can’t cope without the plants help.

 

Sorry for long post but felt the background info would help give a better understanding.

 

Any links or legit info may help more than you could imagine.

@southcoastvaper

hi mate 

I feel your pain bro, have had similar experiences with weed, depression (teenage and beyond..) and relationships thereafter as I smoked too much weed for their liking.

I think education is the only way forward ... for all parties involved 

For me there is no moral issue... 

stigma exists due to misinformation and our society is led by a bunch of wankers (imo)

Balance of what happens in relationships is a challenge whether weed is there or not (also imo lol)

Anyway, long story short...

In my case I chose the plant....

My relationship though wasn’t the best match anyway ... sometimes love isn’t quiet enough sadly 

I am happier now than I was then bro 

Time heals all

Percy crew always got your back and here for you btw whenever needed bro 

take it easy and good luck 

 

Time to pop some more beans 😗

@chillbert thanks so much for reaching out mate means a lot. I’m hoping if I can prove my point there may be some room to justify my medical use. I am going to see the mind team later I need to try and do as much as possible to help myself. I won’t be trying pharma again  though no matter that shit really fucked me up. Also going to look into prescription as that will make it more legitimate. All the best buddy thanks for being so candid.

@southcoastvaper hi mate. Having done a deep dive into health and nutrition over recent years, I wonder if you've ever looked into your food, your gut biome and it's pivotal role in mood regulation. If you have, great, I'll go back to sleep. But if not there may be something in it for you. Just a thought.

Hope it all works out for you 👍

Time to grow old disgracefully.

@southcoastvaper I too am in pretty much the same situation. I use cannabis for anxiety, depression and anger issues due to constantly feeling frustrated and trapped. I also use it for pain management now and cbd for a new condition that I’m trying to control. I also grow under my wife’s nose without her knowing as she thinks her job would be effected if found out by the authorities and have be doing so for the last 2 years. It blows my mind that I can’t grow with her consent and she would rather me buy it on the black market. We too have been together since high school 13 and now in our 40s she knows that I won’t stop using cannabis under any circumstances which she doesn’t like and has had to except it.

And I know it may sound selfish and make me out to be a big bastard but I am prepared to lose my marriage for this plant as it has on more than one occasion stopped me from doing serious harm to myself and probably others. Although I would prefer not to hence why I haven’t told her I guess.

At the minute I am really struggling and at time find myself back in those dark places as I haven’t worked for nearly 2 years am losing my career of 20yrs and am feeling a bit, no a lot lost. I now can only get cannabis as and when as we can’t afford it and my auto grows and small tent have ment I can’t meet my needs going from an oz a week to most weeks going without. My wife’s solution go back to docs for pharma even tho it doesn’t work as it just makes me even more withdrawn and I refuse to take any opioids as I’ve been there and not doing that again! 

I’m am tho slowly winning her round I think as she has recently said if I was to grow in a wardrobe she might be ok as i can hide it from our daughter problem with that is I don’t want to hide it from our daughter that’s were society’s problems come from lack of education! And my daughter loves plants it’s our thing we do together. I’m just hoping this year it will become decriminalised then problem solved. Or I’m just gonna have to grow a pair and fess up I think

sorry I know that was mainly about me and probably needed to get a lot of it off my chest. I just want you to know you ain’t on your own brother and if you ever need to talk to anyone reach out, I’m happy to listen and I’m sure a lot of the Percy fam are too. Stick with it and stick to your guns mate this truly is a wonderful amazing plant and in my opinion will save the world of many of its problems. There are lots of people documenting their experiences of cannabis for anxiety and depression on lots of platforms so I’m sure you’ll find something to help on the World Wide Web. Just remember you ain’t on your own, good luck mate 👊💛✌️

Guys, get your ladies listening to the medicinal focused podcasts and the interviews with actual people who cannabis has helped, I can recommend HOHG ones highly LoL  

I will add to this thread, if it wasnt for canna, I wouldn't be writing this now...had a massive load of shit in my life around 2013 caused by our local council and its was all covered up by the same council...knowing full well I couldnt afford to get the representation I needed and only had a useless union, with no power, for help...I suffered depression & anxiety for a long time, still not convinced its all gone...

A lot of people got paid a lot public money and I got shafted for bringing up the truth 🙁

From that day forward, growing became a must...firstly so I can keep calm and not kill those responsible for fucking me over (thats hard going sometimes too) 2nd so I can put my twigs/fan leaves in a council green waste bin, my empty nute bottles and soil bags in a council general waste bin and 3rd I can keep my seed collection in a council food waste bin

Every day I stick my finger up to 'my' council especially on bin collection day LoL  

One day the internet will get the information and the Council will be fucked, good luck taking me to court then you cunts...I'll be goneski

@toploader never heard of that before. I struggle massively with appetite for food. Mainly only eat in the evening as when the anxiety is bad I do not want to eat. Appreciate the advice something to look at.

  • @3plantspete damn that was hard to read in the sense that I totally get what you are saying. I didn’t even want to tell her as I thought I was protecting her more than anything. Her career is similar to your other halfs in that it would be an issue. 
    I hope things improve for you fella and likewise please feel free to message me if ever you need to talk. I might not have solutions but I can emphasise and understand. 
    Fingers crossed for both of us and I won’t tell her I grow unless I feel she can deal with it.

@zn funny you should say that. There have been some very inspiring interviews and I’ve listened to every episode so far buddy it’s a weekly Wednesday treat for me. Makes me feel I’m not alone or bonkers for wanting to help myself with a natural remedy. 
I need to find more text info as she will not listen objectively to a podcast at this stage. But I feel for you getting screwed over so many cunts out there and not the good kind. 
My only chance is to educate and I’m gonna try my best to do just that.

@southcoastvaper I will say there is a platform/website Buddymarys and has bios of women who use cannabis for lots of different things. It might help her seeing it from a woman’s point of view. Buddymary on insta if you’re on it and there should be a link to her site 👊

@3plantspete just had a look and bookmarked. Thanks mate there is some great material on there and when she is ready to talk I’ll at least have something to back up what I am saying.

Two guests that we had on the podcast had excellent medical information.

Dr Peter Grinspoon  is a guest instructor at Harvard Medical School teaching the endocannabinoid system and a practicing physician at Mass General in Boston. He is a massive cannabis advocate and has lots of writing on the web

A podcast called "Reffer Medness" is a very good one featuring a Registered Nurse and a Pharmacist. Really open dialog about the usefulness of cannabis from medical professionals.

Somewhere I remember a link to a google drive with tons of interesting scientific information. I think it might have been from Temple Grower but not totally certain. follow this link: Canna MED articles – Medical Section – Percys Grow Room: Cannabis Growers Forum

I get your wife's concern, sounds like she is worried about you. Hopefully you can show her that we are normal people that are better when we apply cannabis properly. Your Percy's community is here for you brother.

@southcoastvaper Sorry to hear that mate, yea its funny how some people would rather see you feeling miserable just so they can be happy themselves just because theyve already made their minds up about something they know nothing about. I had the same problem with my mother when I had to move back to the farm, I showed her this cannabis documentry to try and show her why its illegal in the first place, youve maybe seen it already but it certainly helped change her views on the matter. Good luck bro, it might take a wee while but keep slipping some positive weed info in her direction and hopefully she might start thinking about your feelings too instead of just her own. Take it easy mate Smile
