I am finally able to slow down and appreciate my surroundings

I’ve consistently been one of those people who has a truly hard time really appreciating all the things that are going on in the moment.

My focus is either lasered in on work or I’m just too tied up to pay attention. That was not a way I wanted to continue to live our life. But with the advent of legal weed, I have a natural substance that helps myself and others hit the brakes as well as check out what’s happening with some gratitude. This has been the lovely thing about discovering recreational marijuana. Had legal weed not passed in our region, I legitimately would not have gained the benefits of recreational pot. However, the fact that legal weed passed sort of motivated myself and others to see what all the fuss was about. Recreational weed was not something that I was into mostly because it was illegal for most of our adult life. But once legal weed passed, I was so curious that I stopped by the legal weed store to explore. I was amazed by the different things that were for sale at the marijuana dispensary. I had no earthly clue that recreational marijuana came in so many varieties. The staff at the cannabis dispensary were great about getting myself and others a few samples of legal weed. They also taught me and others just how to use recreational marijuana as well as just how much recreational pot I should begin with. Well, I have to call that afternoon an afternoon of epiphany. I really almost instantly saw the benefit of slowing down as well as enjoying the ride. This was a concept that had been completely untypical to myself and others prior to our first experience with legal weed.

Learning to appreciate the little things in life with weed consumption

I’ve always been one of those people who has an actually tough time particularly appreciating all the things that are going on at the moment. My focus is either lasered in on tasks or I’m just too tied up to pay attention. That was not a way I wanted to continue to live my life. But with the advent of legal weed, I have a natural substance that helps myself and others hit the brakes as well as check out what’s happening with some gratitude. This has been the charming thing about discovering recreational marijuana. Had legal weed not passed in our region, I legitimately would not have learned about the benefits of recreational pot. However, the fact that legal weed passed sort of motivated myself and others to see what all the fuss was about. Recreational weed was not something that I was into mostly because it was illegal for most of my adult life. But once legal weed passed, I was so curious that I stopped by the legal weed store to explore. I was amazed by the unusual things that were for sale at the marijuana dispensary. I had no earthly clue that recreational marijuana came in so many varieties. The staff at the cannabis dispensary were great about getting myself and others a few samples of legal weed. They also taught myself and others just how to use recreational marijuana as well as just how much recreational pot I should start with. Well, I have to call that day a day of epiphany.

Using weed medically helps improve mental health

I’m still sort of not over the fact that I can easily go to a weed store to get the sort of thing that would have sure been handy to have for so numerous decades.

For me, our mental health is easily improved with visits to the legal pot store. Honestly, this is because I’ve spent our life getting high. In fact, the opposite is true. My life has been locked down in effort as well as expectation for as long as I can remember. When I was growing up, there was no such thing as legal cannabis. There was no such thing as a marijuana dispensary. And there legitimately wasn’t a locale to go for recreational marijuana. So, it was pretty straight-forward for myself and others to miss out on just what all was going on in that section of life. Even in school, I didn’t smoke recreational pot. I was either too guilted out or too worried about recreational weed or maybe a combination of the 2. So I didn’t think about the benefits of legal cannabis. Once it became legal, that legal cannabis pretty much changed our life profoundly. I find that I am a much more balanced woman with moderate use of legal weed. And the folks down at the marijuana dispensary are easily great about making sure that I get a cannabis education all these years later. It’s been a real change but one that I simply wish I could have made a long time ago but, that’s all in the past. So it makes me just that much more grateful for the legal weed store.

I pay for a better quality cannabis

Good cannabis is a direct way to connect with the plant, a plant that grows naturally, that opens your mind and lifts your spirits

Don’t settle for low quality cannabis. I really like to have a drink now and again, however when I do drink, it will be something of quality. If I am going to have champagne I won’t drink sparkling wine, I will get the finest champagne I can afford. One good drink is worth twenty awful bottles, that’s my motto. When you spend more for quality, you need less of that to make you happy. When you get a good car, it will last you for longer than a beater car. When you buy the highest potency of cannabis, you don’t need a crucial fat sack of it, just a little pinch; Blunts and joints are a good way to smoke skunk weed, because with low caliber marijuana you have to smoke a ton of it to feel anything. Compare that to a single hit of Shatter, or even a higher end Sativa like OG Kush, and you will instantly see the difference. You get a long, fresh, good high from a touch of quality cannabis than you do from smoking an entire eighth of garbage weed. The only tools I keep in my home for smoking are my dab rig, of course, and a single-hitter pipe for cannabis. For my money the dab rig is the best one-hit-and-quit way to get high, but sporadically I like the mouth tingling of cannabis smoke. Good cannabis is a direct way to connect with the plant, a plant that grows naturally, that opens your mind and lifts your spirits. As much as I appreciate dabbing, cannabis is still the key.

A history with cannabis

Combat vets growing cannabis was legitimately common in the United States and up into Canada as well, and Andy was like that! They planted fields of marijuana plants, both to use for hemp production and cannabis sales, and started a major grow operation; Beth brought in some of her botanist friends to help tend the cannabis crops, and Andy was in charge of protecting everything; When you are in the marijuana business, your foes can often be crafty, and that isn’t to mention the presence of local law enforcement

Andy was a military guy for years, however he ended up resigning his term due to moral concerns with the war conflict. Then he became an ardent opponent of the war. He was still good with the soldiers, he just thought lives were being wasted needlessly in Afghanistan. At a single one of the protests he attended, he met the woman who was named Beth. She was a love child. They fell in love and ran off together, too happy to keep protesting. They ended up going south, where they started a marijuana farm to pay the bills and start a family. Fun fact, a lot of soldiers in Afghanistan were exposed to marijuana, and got into the farming supplier once they returned back home after the war. Combat vets growing cannabis was legitimately common in the United States and up into Canada as well, and Andy was like that!

They made a great team, and were able to peaceably grow and sell marijuana for numerous years with no incidents. It is quite a sweet story when you really think about it in the end.

I still love to smoke cannabis

I am almost retirement age now, and I still start each morning with a bowl of weed. This is not a mid-life crisis thing at all, it is how I had chosen to start the day for the last thirty or so years. For many people, they see pot smokers as lazy deadheads, watching television and playing video games, but this is so far from the truth! Most pot smokers are the people you interact with day to day, out and about in the world, and you would never notice that they are high. Obviously smoking cannabis in public is still against the law. So for now, so I usually bring a THC infused vape pen to my job with me, to use on breaks and at lunch, but since I also use a vape pen for cigarette assiance, to help keep me healthy, no one ever thinks twice when I use the THC vape pen instead, no one knows the difference, so that makes the days at job go nice and chill, although vaping is no change for real cannabis, it still gets the job done. Since I am basically regularly blazed on some form of marijuana, no one ever thinks that I am high because I am regularly the same. No one would suppose it would be humanly possible to be high all afternoon, every afternoon, but these people underbid my cannabis consumption. I suppose it isn’t super great, but I have quit cigarettes and alcohol both, so cannabis has to be my one and only vice, and I’m really making it count.

She had quite the display of cannabis

In the break between school, I went up north to spend some time with my buddy Lois.

Lois and I used to be so close when both of us were kids, but it had been a lot of years since both of us had seen one another.

The two of us had started to connect over the computer over the pandemic, and now that things were opening back up I wanted to go see my pal again. I knew that both of us had a lot in common, and she had some fun stuff lined up for us to do. I also knew she was a big-time cannabis lover, just like me, so I was enthusiastic to see what kind of orange they had in the large city. Any expectations I had were shattered long before I stepped into a cannabis dispensary, just with what I saw at Lois’ apartment. There was an antique wooden dresser in her den, and when she opened it up I saw dozens of clear jars of cannabis. All colors of green, various densities and degrees of fluffiness, a dazzling array of cannabis. It was as if Lois had collected her own little cannabis dispensary in his room, and every spot in the dresser was filled with implements of cannabis. There were vapes and edibles of all shapes and sizes, a custom made glass bong, a cute little bowl, and a few ways to smoke cannabis that I had frankly never heard of before. I am not sure what the fun things Lois had planned for us to do, because the entire trip was spent in a thick haze of cannabis smoke.

Cannabis plants in Grammy’s garden

I learned everything I know about botany from my Grammy Ethyl. She was your prototypical grandma, always wearing a simple house dress, always happy to see me, always with a clean house and a fridge full of food. Grammy liked to spend most of her free time in the garden. She was such a bright and sunny person as compared to my grandpa, was dour and stern looking all the time. Very recently, Grammy showed me a new, hidden part of the garden I had never seen before, one filled with cannabis plants. Suddenly it all became clear to me why Grammy was so happy all the time, and why she was outside so often, it was because she was smoking cannabis every day! I was quite blown away to learn that not only did Grammy grow marijuana, not only did she smoke it, not only did she sell it to other members of her Bridge Club, but that she had been doing it longer than I had been alive! She told me she started growing cannabis when my mother was still in diapers. My whole life there have been amazing, lush cannabis plants hidden behind Grammy’s house and I had never known it! I examined one of the cannabis plants, and saw heavy buds laden with crystals, and it made my mouth start watering! She clipped a few juicy buds into a sandwich bag for me to take home with me, because she didn’t want me smoking marijuana before driving. Spending time in Grammy’s garden just got a heck of a lot more interesting.

Sativa is the best for writing and art

The famous writer Ernest Hemmingway was quoted as saying “write drunk, edit sober,” words of wisdom to this very day! I am not much of a drinker, more a smoker, but the sentiment remains the same.

When you are writing, creating your work, you need to relax your mind and let the words come through you.

Don’t overthink things, just write what comes naturally, and this is where being stoned really comes in handy for me. When I am high I can totally relax, not worry about spelling or punctuation, and just flow. That is the gift of cannabis for the writers of the world. On the other hand, when it is time to revisit and revise the writing, I don’t use cannabis beforehand because I want to be as sharp as possible for revising and honing my words. The main problem I run into with writing while smoking a lot of cannabis is that sometimes an idea will seem clear to me, but not translate on the page. The art of writing is to take the picture that has formed in your head, and describe it perfectly on the page, so cannabis helps but can also hinder at times. The best kind of marijuana to use while writing is Sativa, of course, which is widely known for helping the creative juices start to flow. Other kinds of cannabis might slow you down, or make you more introspective, so for writing or art I strongly recommend using Sativa. And for editing, I strongly recommend some coffee, and no cannabis at all.
