    Wife is 10 weeks post lumpectomy from breast cancer with her double mastectomy with reconstruction scheduled end of July and her anxiety has reached a point she needs assistance managing it.

    We are both leery on the idea of more meds since already on Tomoxifon and Plaquenil for RA. Anyone with experience that might have a suggestion on a capsule or gummy that might be effective we would appreciate.

    This is the best I have used. It is administered by tincture. You let is sit in between your gum and your cheek for 8-10 minutes for absorption. If you swallow it immediately, the stomach will not absorb the CBD and you'll piss it out. I feel more relaxed and sleep better with this CBD than any other I've tried - it's not really close either.



    Edit: Also, upon taking this regularly my blood pressure dropped significantly. I'm 36, in good shape and eat pretty clean but I have a family history of high blood pressure. I was regularly in the 145/80 range with spikes in the 160s/100 range. The only changes I made were taking CBD every night before bed and ending a three year long relationship (that was stressful). Had my physical in late Feb and was down to 118/63 - the lowest my BP has been in years. Not sure if the CBD or ending the relationship had more to do with that but I'm going to keep taking the CBD.

    A friend of mine runs Highline Wellness. Haven’t tried others but I’m a fan.

    Michigan is now recreational. Neither of us know much about it to be honest. She isn't interested in getting high though so it makes it more difficult for me to assist

    Any certain product you would suggest to assist with anxiety?

    Go to a highly-rates dispensary and talk to someone there. They’re super knowledgeable and will be able to recommend strains and proper doses for exactly what your wife needs. I get having an aversion to “getting high” if she’s never done it, but this is medicine and it works better than anything pharmaceutical. Best of luck.

    Thank you. Maybe that is the best approach.

    I think if y’all go with an open mind, you’ll be very pleasantly surprised by the amount of professionalism, help, and care displayed by the staff.

    Im far more interested in natural vs prescription in this case no doubt.
