I've had this disease called POTS, postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, since I was 13. It's a confusing thing that I don't want to get too much into that tends to affect teens. It causes shit tons of symptoms, but the ones important to this are nausea, vomiting, headaches, migraines, and general pain concentrated in my legs. It got so bad that I wasn't able to walk for a year and a half. I always thought that marijuana might be an effective treatment for my POTS, though I didn't know what it was at the time I didn't get diagnosed until I was 16, and my depression, but lived in rural Missouri so my chances were slim of getting it there. I knew one person who had access, but I was too scared to ask her because it was so taboo there. A friend of mine who now smokes there tells me that it runs about $50 a gram, so I'm kinda glad I didn't pick up smoking there. I moved to the Chicago suburbs, probably the worst place in American, a few years later. Weed was accessible there, but was still pretty taboo. I went to the mayo clinic for my disorder a few months after I moved there and attended a rehab program that taught me to walk again. They also told me that, for my health, I should avoid marijuana and other drugs. I spent two horrible years in Chicago where I was bullied, mostly when I couldn't walk because I couldn't walk, and then ignored by every person I came across. My dad got a job out in Colorado eventually. He was going to move there by himself and my mom brother and I were gonna stay in chiraq until our house sold. I convinced him to let me move out with him and I ended up moving to Denver. I, because I lived in Denver, discovered weed and how great it was. My dad caught me one day and the combination of his Jewish guilt, my Missouri anti weed guilt, and my ignorance of the plant made me doubt that smoking was a good thing to do and that I was addicted and all that stuff. I went on a tolerance break, which made me discover I wasn't as addicted as I thought, and I started researching the science behind marijuana and completely changed my mind. It helps a majority of my problems, all that I listed out in particular. Anyways, enough background, sorry if it was too much, here's what I have to say about this strain: My POTS has been acting up as of late. It's basically been in remission for that past 8 months or so, but it decided to randomly unleash itself a few days ago. It's made walking hard and I haven't been eating due to nausea. I'd been smoking this strain, silver pearl, which was nice but didn't help any of my medical problems. I picked up an 1/8th of this today. I smoked a bowl and my nausea vanished. The pain in my legs subsided significantly, and the pain in my back and arms, the pain had spread from just my legs to include those that morning, was abolished. It's a good strain that'd is recommend to any recreational or medical user. It had a pleasant high too. I've taken the hardest of hard medicines for all my symptoms, but nothing helps even half as much as a good indica, or any kind of weed really. Thank god for marijuana and let's hope for a speedy legalization.
