Interview 5

Tell us a little bit about yourself? Where are you from, etc?

I was born and raised in Southern California, but I’ve been living in Eugene, Oregon for the past 4 years. I graduated with a BA as well as an MSW. Mental health is my gig! I’m a femboi lesbian and am full of gay pride! 

When did you start consuming cannabis and why?

I started consuming cannabis over a decade ago and truthfully it was for recreational purposes. I loved how it made me feel and it was one of the view moments where I felt grounded. I suffered from depression, anxiety, and mood irregularities throughout my adolescence. Cannabis tamed the “demon” in some ways. 

Why do you consume cannabis now?

My main reason for consuming cannabis now is for medicinal purposes. It helps with my depression, anxiety, and mood. I find it absolutely beneficial to consume THC and CBD products together since the synergistic effect allows the medicine to work how it was intended to. My options are cannabis or having my pharmaceuticals increased. I’ll choose cannabis every time. 

What do you wish people understood about cannabis?

That it is truly medicine. A gift from God even. Cannabis has the ability to help people with physical AND mental illnesses. It has saved lives and once we get past the shame around using it, and the stigma and judgment of uniformed society, REAL conversations and change can happen. It’s not scary or evil and can be used in a wide range of doses.
