I’ve never exactly been a mellow person.
Really, there is nothing wrong with being a bit high strung.
That’s just the way some of us are built. However, I took that high energy and dang near rode it into the ground. Thankfully, I was introduced to the wonders of cannabis. When I had tried recreational marijuana a few times in college, it just really didn’t do anything for me. Perhaps it was the THC content of the marijuana we bought. For all I know, we could have bought and smoked a bag of oregano. Regardless, I just never experienced any sensation from the recreational marijuana I tried back then. That all changed after a heart attack at 43 that led to a complete overhaul when it came to my lifestyle. Gone were the 80 hour work weeks and all the other added stress. It was tough to just be still for me. A friend started taking me to yoga and that was looking like a bad idea after my few couple of attempts. So she took me to her house prior to yoga one day and we shared a cannabis edible that she gets from the local cannabis spot. It was like flipping a switch for me. Suddenly, I was so into just being quiet and letting the world slip by. That yoga session was just so amazing. I could really feel my body as my mind was quiet and all my focus was on feeling the poses. I’ve since incorporated trips to the local cannabis spot in my weekly errands. Life is just so much more balanced with the help I get from sativa and indica products.
