Conventional pills did little to ease Jill Grindle’s PTSD and sleep disorder, but within months of turning to medical marijuana the Calgary mother says she was sleeping through the night.
Now she has another worry.
“It’s costing a pretty penny,” she said. “So what I do is I under-medicate greatly. I scrimp and I save and I only use it very sparingly.”
Like most Canadians, Grindle’s standard insurance plan doesn’t cover legally prescribed cannabis. For Grindle that adds up to $1,200 a month if she were to use her full four-gram daily allowance, so she gets by on one gram a day.
