Candace Junkin Cannabis Impact Story

I used cannabis in 2002 to get off the myriad of opiates and benzos the doctors had me on. Then watched as it also helped my father with his Parkinson’s. I took my anger over the government lying to us about it’s medical value and turned it into a positive by becoming an activist. I helped found 2 international cannabis legalization organizations and today I am part of a medical cannabis company I helped build.

Cannabis had enabled me to take my life back-Xen, Cannabis Impact Story

Xen Cannabis Impact Story

Cannabis had enabled me to take my life back after almost becoming crippled by a late Rheumatoid arthritis diagnosis. It has ensured that I could eat, laugh, love and cry again after having nephropathy, joint pain and inflammation that is currently medically controlled in combination of chemotherapy has take so much of my joy away. I’ve lost so much but am regaining my love of creating, as well establishing myself as a cannabis educator, caregiver, and blogger. I want to help normalize cannabis‘ presence especially for women of color and other minorities who have talents that are able to shine through cannabis such as culinary, business and even working with hemp.

SpacyLounge Cannabis Impact Story

We sell CBD infused coffee, tea, cocktails at spacylounge in Adams Morgan. Last week we had an older man coming to the lounge to have a cup of coffee. It was during our weekly Saturdays CBD Bazaar and we had several customers at the bar talking about pain relief benefits of CBD. After everyone left, the older gentleman came over the bar and said “It is true that CBD helps to reduce pain? I have a very bad head ache”. We served him a cup of tea with CBD and almost immediately we saw a change on his face. He looked relieved and happy. He thanked us with a big smile and said that that our lounge is his favorite place in DC now. It made our day!

It all began around August of 2017, I began to get mentally ill-Adriana, Cannabis Impact Story

Adriana Cannabis Impact Story

It all began around August of 2017, I began to get mentally ill. I started to feel different, not my bubbly loving self anymore. I fell into a very horrid pit of depression and anxiety for 8 months. I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t look at myself in the mirror bc I didn’t like what I saw, I was losing a lot of wait for a 98 pound girl. I couldn’t see a tomorrow. Therapy didn’t help. Psychologists only gave me “happy pills “ they called them. But to me, it didn’t feel right, I was always an all natural type of girl. Then cannabis was there. Cannabis was there to help me when I needed it the most whether it’d be for my panic attacks, for days I couldn’t even leave my room, and for my suicidal episodes. Cannabis helped. It took me to a bliss that I couldn’t reach on my own at that time. It helped me get away and be my smiley bubbly self again! So I began to smoke daily. And every day, I felt better. I’d eat, i gained my weight back but most important I gained my integrity and my self love back. Cannabis is the love of my life because it helped me fall in love with myself again. Cannabis helped me with my depression and it still to this day helps me fight my anxiety. Thank you Mother Earth. 🌸🍯💨

I feel like cannabis is much more healthier than talking pills-Alianah, Cannabis Impact Story

Alianah Cannabis Impact Story

Cannabis makes me feel much more open and relaxed, it also helps me with my bad menstrual cycle. Rather than taking pills and other drugs that I really don’t want to put into my body, I like to use cannabis to help with it. I feel like cannabis is much more healthier than talking pills. It also works way better for me. I’ve had times where instead of taking pills to help with my menstrual pain which most of the times it doesn’t really help, I tried doing something different like when I’ve had cannabis at the time of my menstrual cycle, I changed my diet up a bit, ate some fruit, drunk water, smoked a joint and pain was nonexistent. I feel as though cannabis is a great alternative to other drugs, much safer and effective.
