Tracy, you are not alone. Honestly, I think the problem lies in the ways of administration and hypersensitivity to cannabinoids. The idea is simple. Some of us are a lot more sensitive to cannabis and it can vary through our lives. Any combustion, like smoking or bong is clearly to be avoided. Edibles and vapor are ok but micro dose only. It works for me. I can get positive feedback from weed but in ridiculously low dosage-intakes. For us, the threshold between positive and negative is very thin tho. Wish you all the best.
