At Plants Not Pills there is nothing we love more than hearing from people whose lives have been changed by cannabis therapy. Our patients mean the world to us and we are thrilled they have given us permission to share their stories with our readers. Here are a few of the amazing transformations we’ve been privileged to hear about in the past few months…

“As of today I’ve been pill free for just about 2 years now since a started to stop taking my pill and a full year with no pills at all. I’m down 110 lbs and I have recently moved in with my boyfriend to start the next chapter of my life.  Also, I’m now just met with and occupational therapist who is going to try and work with me to getting back out in the working world. I hope I can help people the way that you help me. I just want to give back. I’m so grateful for all the help and support.” Michelle W.

“I reached out to Plants Not Pills about a year ago, the catalyst being that I was about to embark on a new challenge at work moving to a new role at a multinational company. Though this presented an opportunity for more reward, there is also more risk. That being said, when you have a family and all the responsibilities and pressure that come with it, sometimes you need to step outside of your comfort zone and take those risks. I have always struggled with anxiety and the physical challenges in can bring along with it, insomnia, lack of appetite, shallow breathing, clenching my jaw (which help bring on migraines) all of which only make the anxiety worse and send me down a slippery spiral. When I reached out to you last year I was managing my anxiety with Ativan, and though it would help with the sleep, the anxiety would come rushing back when it wore off.  I was really excited to take on a new challenge and be successful (which helps with my self confidence, which help with my anxiety, etc…) but was concerned with how I would manage all the new pressures at work. As mentioned at the time, I just didn’t think I could manage. I am happy to say that the past year using cannabis instead of prescription drugs has proven to be all we thought it would be. I have not renewed my Ativan prescription in over a year, and I haven’t had a migraine since November. More than that, I am extremely proud of my success at work. I am consistently ranking as one of the performers on my team and am getting ready for another exciting year. As per your recommendation, a strong Indica at the end of the day helps me unwind, think clearer, calmly solve problems and manage my stress. An Indica edible ensures a solid night of rest. I have found some great hybrids and some sativas that are great for my headaches. I attribute much of the success I am having to being able to manage my anxiety better and calmly solve both my personal challenges as well as customer challenges at work.” – Tom D.
“I would like to take this time to bring somethings to your attention about Plants Not Pills. Every since I have started dealing with this clinic I have nothing but amazing things to say. Since the start I have been treated like a friend and not just some patient of the clinic. The staff who answer the phone are so courteous and respectful I am very comfortable to call the clinic no matter the issue. One member I would specifically like to recognize is Kirsten O’Brien. I have dealt with Kirsten with all my issues and she has been more then amazing to deal with. No matter the request Kirsten is on top of it with an answer for me immediately. Every time we have spoke she has been upbeat and positive and just perfect person to deal with. The staff and doctors at this clinic have made it so comfortable for myself and other patients who use your services to access our medication and any advice or help we need in regards to it, an that is something hard to find. From myself I thank you so very much for all you do for me to make this path a easy and fun adventure, and I look forward to the future with Plants Not Pills.  Chris T.
“I have had a few questions throughout this process and I feel I must say that Kristen ( hope I spelled that correctly) is absolutely amazing!!  So nice, helpful, passionate and knowledgeable!!  Between the both of you I honestly feel you are making the lives of sooooo many people better.  I thank you both from the bottom of my heart!!!” Tom M.
