Appreciating the Unique Effects of Cannabis
When we first started designing Releaf as a way for patients to track how different types of cannabis affected their various symptoms, we did a lot of internal research. This was back in 2014/2015. We’d fire up our vaporizers, sit back, and take notes on what we considered valuable about our experience. The ability to monitor our symptom level was a given; after only a hit or two of fresh flower, we immediately started feeling better. But we also started feeling different, and we wanted a way to track those differences as well.
The “Feels” panel in the Releaf App was inspired by our love and gratitude towards all the feelings and effects cannabis has to offer. We encourage you to track these things alongside your symptom level fluctuations, because the more you know about how you respond to different strains and products, the more you can take advantage of them!
To new patients: we hope that you’ll take the time to get accustomed to these effects. Introduce the plant into your life slowly and carefully. Pay attention to how it affects you, and how those effects feel to you, and how you feel about those effects. You may just find yourself building a very rewarding relationship with cannabis that will last a lifetime.
