I don’t think I had been quite so low before.
And being low was not a state that I was all that familiar with.
While I have faced my fair share of challenges in this life, I’ve always remained optimistic and upbeat. But when my mom died after a long illness, I was sort of shattered emotionally. I was having a very hard time reconciling my natural feeling of relief that she wasn’t suffering any longer and the void that her death presented. Fortunately, I dear friend came to town, put me in the car and took me to the cannabis dispensary. Honestly, I had no idea where she was taking me and honestly didn’t quite care. When we arrived at the local cannabis spot, I was mildly surprised. But when my friend went to the staff of the local cannabis spot asking for a hybrid strain that helps with grief, it got my attention. The staff explained that while certain hybrid strains are better than others when it comes to depression, they encouraged us to go slow. I hadn’t used marijuana in years. We ended up getting some indica with a lower THC content for me. My friend, who has used marijuana for decades, got herself some edibles as well as a high THC sativa strain. She then drove us to a lovely cabin in the woods she had rented for 3 days. And it was there that I was able to talk out my feelings. Most of the thanks goes to my dear friend but that indica sure helped me acknowledge my feelings.
