Amory Jane on Mary Jane: Cannabis & My Body

After a year of research entitled “Amory Jane on Mary Jane: Cannabis & My Body” I have found that cannabis has helped me with/relieved:
-Nausea
-Muscular pain (still chronic, but helps me manage the pain and also relax enough for healing to take place)
-Spasms
-Anxiety (although some strains can make it worse in certain situations).
-Menstrual Cramps (seriously the best remedy I’ve ever found)
-TMJ/TMD
-Depression (still dealing with it as regularly as ever, but Sky cannabis oil can help me get through really dark times and spiraling moments without letting them destroy me for weeks on end)
-Sex: body image, less pain in hips and other frequently achey spots, feeling more connected to my body, giving oral sex is extra fun while high, libido boost, cool different orgasms.

It has not helped with:
-Being a long-term “cure” for depression
-Fertility
-Short-term memory
-Self-Discipline
-Sinus problems

My most frequent and favorite way of consuming cannabis is through ingesting cannabis oil (a couple drops under the tongue, then swallow, then wait a while for it to kick in). My #1 recommended products are from Luminous Botanicals (and I promise they’re not paying me to say that! I just think their stuff is incredible). I like edibles/tonics/tinctures because I have asthma and smoking is not great for my lungs. However, sometimes I want to sit around and share a bong with friends, so I do smoke occasionally. I also have an herb vaporizer pen for getting high (or just relaxing with some CBD weed) on the go. It’s nice to have options and I am grateful that I live in a state with legal cannabis, especially since I don’t have health insurance.

Not everyone reacts the same way, but after a year of journaling, those are my own personal (summarized) findings. Feel free to share yours as well, and for more info on sex and cannabis, check out Episode 4 of my podcast, of Sex on the Brain with Amory Jane!
