How Medical Cannabis Helped Marcela Get off Medications

"I know medical cannabis is not for everyone and that some are skeptical, but it’s worth educating yourself on your options."

I have been able to ween myself off of medications and my sleep, eating and anxiety disorders are at bay.

—Marcela Paguaga

My medical cannabis journey began when a friend told me about her journey and results. I suffered from anxiety, an eating disorder and trouble sleeping. If it sounds like a lot to you, you can only imagine how overwhelming it was in my world. My anxiety has been very prevalent since 2015 and my eating disorder has been a lifelong battle. In 2016 I got treatment for both, and at one point I was on almost 9 different medications trying to figure out which had the best/least side effects. On top of taking prescribed medication, I was also taking over the counter sleep aids, almost three per night. I realized this could be causing damage to my liver and that I needed a change. This was not sustainable.

In addition, the medications were affecting my job. As an actress I needed all the creativeness and awareness to my emotions and the side effects of the medications interfered with being myself. I would ease off them during production, but that always meant that my eating disorder and anxiety would turn up. During one of my last projects a friend introduced me to over the counter CBD, and I started to discover some relief, which is what led me to see a doctor to register for my medical cannabis license and educate myself further on what wellness centers had to offer.

It’s been about 6 months since I obtained my license and started to incorporate medical cannabis (products higher in CBD, but with enough THC) into my wellness routine. I have been able to ween myself off of medications and my sleep, eating and anxiety disorders are at bay. I still have more to learn, but I share this story as a means to give hope to others. I felt helpless so many times. I know medical cannabis is not for everyone and that some are skeptical, but it’s worth educating yourself on your options.

Absolutely a great dispensary. Team is always ready with a smile and patient to a fault with MMUR questions. This dispensary goes above and beyond in customer service and is always open to any issues you might have before or after product purchase. ...Between the rewards points you accumulate and the regular sales they have across all product lines, you will not go broke or sacrifice quality. ...Surterra should be a regular stop. And the Coral Reefer line is AMAZING!

Surterra is, by far, the best dispensary out of the 5 in my neighborhood. I need a high THC for pain relief, etc. and Surterra generally has some 30%+.  Their discounts and rewards program are the best in the area.  The budtenders and support staff are awesome.

Surterra has the best pre-rolls in my area of multiple dispensaries to choose from. They're not too tight & burn great. This is the place to get your pre-rolls folks!

The customer service and products I received are top notch. As a new patient they've taken the time to answer all my questions and ensure that I completely understand, not just make the sale and rush me out the door like other places. The daily sales and special discount offers make things very affordable...the attention I receive from the customer service reps will keep me coming back.

This is my absolute favorite dispensary. Daily deals, amazing customer service, and phenomenal products. Surterra has been coming out swinging with the recent new flower strains! They are by far the most efficient/fastest dispensary I've ever been to. 12/10, highly recommend.
