  1. I just had a few quick questions before I go to my doctors, or set up a meeting with the THC foundation.
    I have had a pretty extreme case of OCD for the past few years along with depression even farther back, I also have insominia which ive struggled with for some time too
    i already take a large dose of zoloft for the OCD and depression as well as 400mg of seraquil for the insomnia however i have been trying to cut back on both and go along a different path.
    with that brief medical history do I sound like a canidate that could be helped by marijuana?
    please say why or why not.
     
  2. it really all depends on your doctor
    i dont think you'll get anywhere with the ocd problem, unless when you smoke its making you less obsessive?
    i don't think they'll give you mmj for depression, considering it will only keep you in that good mood until your high is gone.

    go for the insomnia bro, pot makes you sleepy :smoking:
     
  3. Hon, you qualify. Read this- they give the exact wording of the law and OCD interferes with "normal living".

    You own doctor CAN give you a recommendation (IT IS NOT A PRESCRIPTION!) for cannabis. But he is too scared of the AMA, DEA FDA and all those other "A"s to do it. Turn him on to my list (see links below)

    Dronabinol is a synthetic THC. If the lab version works, the natural should too. Often Tourette's is treated similarly to OCD and there are several studies on cannabis and Tourette's in my link below.
