The 1st time I took an edible it ended with me curled up in the corner of my dorm, sobbing as I begged my BFF to take the highness away. Post meltdown I don't remember much else about the experience, so panic was all I had associated with edibles, being sure to stay far far far away.
Recently though, I found an article on @ManRepeller, where a girl used Whoopi Goldberg’s THC products to cure her period pains. Her, like myself and much of the women I know, experience diabolical periods complete with body aches and emotional misfires; far worse than any edible meltdown. I knew my period was approaching, so I began to research THC options; looking for a cure more natural and calorie free than my usual cocktail of prescription painkillers and Hershey Bars.
I decided to purchase Carative's 400mg sour rings after a friend of mine coined them as his go-to-gummy. I planned to take 800mg a day to mimic the 800mg of ibuprofen my OBGYN suggests, and for the first time ever, I was actually looking forward to my period.
On the first and worse day, I started with 200mg (half-bite) in the morning and got up for work, which was an accomplishment in itself. Although I still had slight cramps I didn't feel like I had a slipped disc like usual. I was also noticed I was in a better mood when the sight men didn't detest me. By lunchtime I was up to 400mg,and my back nor my stomach were in pain. I wasn’t high in a corner either, or high at all actually, just relaxed, pain free and productive. More productive than usual, since I'm usually either crying or daydreaming about chocolate instead of working. By the end of the day and 800mg later I was still pain-free; but worried about what would happen that night. Normally, I wake up, make sure I haven't destroyed my sheets, and watch reality TV until falling back asleep. I was hoping I wouldn't have to this time, there was nothing good scheduled for TV.
And if it were I would've missed it; I slept like a college football player.
I finished the pack of sour rings throughout the week and as long as I was consistent , there were no meltdowns from the girl-flu or the edibles. I also slept to the point of slob, had less emotional outbursts, and hated my uterus less than usual. I'd like to try a topical treatment next, and will keep you posted on that. In the meantime let me know if you have any other natural suggestions below.
*** For other women interested in THC do so at your own risk. I could’ve very had another meltdown. Consult a doctor. ***
*** I bought and took these while on a trip to Vegas ***
