Autism/Bipolar Disorder/OCD

“Cannabis has been working far better than any medication I’ve ever been put on as I have been diagnosed with autism there is no treatments or cures i have a very hard time in social situations. I had been able to find work and even make new friends and found myself very distracted as well and with the help of this medication I’ve been able to focus. I have been diagnosed bipolar manic depressive and medical cannabis has not only made my mania almost nonexistent but it helps keep me level that way so I’m not diving into a depressive state.

I’ve also been diagnosed with OCD of which i haven’t had any symptoms of in months since I started on this program. I’m able to once again consistently perform my daily tasks and activities without any side effects due to this medication. I normally have a tough time eating and I weigh very little but since this program I’ve started eating and gaining real weight and I even started working out again this has been a life changing experience. The only things I see as a barrier for this life changing treatment are the prices and insurance doesn’t cover it. If insurance covered a portion I feel many people including myself would be able to consistently receive their much needed medications to safely and successfully proceed in their daily lives. Thank you Dr. Mirman this has changed my life for the better in just about every way.
