> I join you in lowering expectations for how much improvement I can achieve. Good for you for pursuing other avenues of health. You don't seem like a disreputable wretch at all.
> I'm curious how you're taking the cannabis, if you don't mind sharing. I have heard there are types now that help pain and anxiety without creating any dopey feeling. How much does it cost?
The dopey feeling mostly depends on the strain you use. There are great Indica strains that knock anxiety right down - and put me on the coach.
I seem to do best with edibles (I make my own) because of the overall body relaxation. I also use a personal vaping pen and oil, which I buy....the battery pens are up to $45 and the cartridges of oil are about $30 or less.
Prices are rather high, but my quality of life has improved greatly.
