Just to lay the foundation, I have been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety and depression…on a recent trip to Las Vegas, where Pot has been legalized, I decided to try a very small amount of chocolate with what they said was about 20 milligrams of THC to see if it would help me with some pain I was having.
What followed was a nightmare. It took roughly two hours to kick in and by the time it did, we were poolside. I literally felt like I was in and out of consciousness, couldn’t see clearly, could barely walk, felt totally paranoid and was convinced I was going to die in the jacuzzi because I couldn’t move or articulate that I needed to get out. This feeling reminded me of extreme depersonalization, which I’ve experienced before with my PTSD, but even worse. I felt like this the better part of the day, and slept on and off almost the entire day. It was a horrible experience and one I never wish to repeat again.
