The cannabis is good for my mental health

For me it isn’t about getting high, it’s about my health, but I have always had major troubles with sleep, from sleepwalking and talking to full blown night terrors, and even some bouts with insomnia from time to time.

Trying to go to bed at night was torture for me.

I tried a lot of OTC meds to help me sleep, however those drugs never helped in any meaningful way. I had a lot of stoner friends at the time, and one of them told me how she never remembered her dreams, because the cannabis muted them so much, but with that in mind, I tried smoking cannabis just to see what would happen, and it led to the best night of sleep I ever experienced. The next day I got on my laptop and started doing some research, because I needed to learn more about cannabis to find out how it would be most beneficial. The first thing I learned is that I wanted to stick with indica strains of cannabis, which is what my associate had given me. Sativa strains produce a more alert, clear-headed high, which was quite the opposite of what I needed! Once I had a baseline expertise of what I was looking for I went to the cannabis dispensary to get some expert advice from a pot professional. She talked to me about weed strains, and then a lot of other possibilities that I didn’t feel existed, like CBD oil, shatter, salve, and edibles. It’s fantastic to have options, because cannabis has proven to help my mental health.

The good times I had at the dispensary

The only problem with the local cannabis dispensary is that sometimes it is too much fun, I always enjoyed going in there as much as possible, mostly to hang out, the staff are all super cool, they play a lot of good music in the store, and the vibe is legitimately friendly and chill.

The problem started to develop slowly, and that was all the other people who felt the same way I did.

It got so the place was full to the legal capacity, and half the people there weren’t even shopping, they were just hanging out. This is why the cannabis dispensary opened up a smokers lounge, so that people like me would have a place to hang out, but not be in the way of doing business. I call it a lounge, but really that term makes it sound fancier than it is. Really, it is just a covered area outside, with open windows and screens to keep out the bugs, where you can smoke cannabis in an open air environment. They set some tables and chairs, and even brought in a couple of old couches, so you can take your purchases from the cannabis dispensary and have a place to enjoy them on the premises. If it had proper walls, and a heating and air conditioning system, it would be a little better, but it’s still a good way to spend a night smoking cannabis with your friends! The only rule is that you can only use products purchased at the cannabis dispensary, which means “no outside weed or drinks.”

Cannabis:Good or Bad?

Cannabis has been used to treat ailments for at least 3,000 years.

Nevertheless, the Food and Drug Administration has not approved cannabis for the treatment of any medical condition, although cannabidiol, a substance present in cannabis, was approved in June 2018 as a treatment for certain types of epilepsy.

Recent efforts toward legalization have further exacerbated this tension between widespread belief that cannabis treats a variety of ailments and little scientific understanding of its effects. Some studies suggest that cannabis may be of benefit in treating conditions such as chronic pain, alcoholism, drug addiction, depression, anxiety, cancer, epilepsy, and multiple sclerosis. At the other end of the spectrum is the plethora of studies that have found negative associations between cannabis use and health such as mental health problems, testicular cancer, and respiratory disease. There is evidence that demonstrates both the harms and health benefits of cannabis. However, despite recent comprehensive reviews of scientific studies evaluating the benefits and harms of cannabis, more research is needed to determine the full public health implications of increased cannabis use. The Drug Enforcement Administration classifies cannabis as a Schedule I controlled substance, which discourages researchers in this area from studying cannabis and cannabinoids. Whenever you use cannabis for medical reasons, you and your doctor should carefully consider how these factors relate to your illness and health history. There is some evidence to support the use of cannabis for pain relief, but you should avoid it if you have a history of mental illness.

Trying out some edibles

My husband & I went to the recreational marijuana dispensary on Saturday.

  • There was a worker in the lobby from a company that sells cannabis edibles.

The representative was giving away free samples of their new line of edibles. In order to qualify for the free item, I had to spend $25 on any of their other products in the store. I browsed the selection of flower items they had available. I found a couple of strains that looked interesting. I purchased some Blue Dream and Purple Haze. I spent enough cash to qualify me to get a free product from the company worker. My husband decided to buy some products as well. He purchased some cannabis oil that he could vape on the go. Since they had a couple of new products to choose from, each one of us chose a different strain for our free product. That allowed us to try numerous products from the same vendor. My husband & I were impressed with the products from the distributor. The new edibles are going to be a large hit. They have a wonderful taste. There was peanut butter, chocolate, strawberry, mint and a lemon flavor that I remember. I ended up choosing more of a fruity edible while my husband stuck to chocolate. We choose to do a cake or cookie form. There were gummies, mints, sprays and gums available if we didn’t want a typical baked good though. I never realized how diverse edibles are. There really is something for everyone.

Changing to a CBD oil in order to sleep

A pil isn’t healthy long term

Medical marijuana is both safe & effective. Medical marijuana can be used to treat a number of mental & physical illnesses. One of the main reasons why the government decided to approve medical marijuana was for the treatment of chronic pain. There are millions of people that use medical marijuana & day to day pain is the reason why. Athletes, older folks and just daily aches and pain in normal people are the customers. Another one of the biggest reasons is sleep. Medical marijuana has proven to help with sleep in 95% of people. I used to take a sleeping pill every day for my restlessness. The sleeping pills weren’t helping & I doubled up on the dosage. When the sleeping pills weren’t helping any longer, I doubled up again. I then got tired of dosing and not having any relief. Working out, eating right and relaxing at night didn’t help me sleep. I was desperate. A friend of mine recommended trying medical marijuana in order to sleep at night. You can smoke it or ingest it. I put CBD oil in my cup of tea every night. It mellows me out and relaxes me. There is a tiny bit of THC in there so sometimes I get really fun. I am really glad that I made the change though. A pil isn’t healthy long term. The CBD oil is cheap, easy to get and safe. The CBD part comes from a plant, how bad can it be? I might even up my dose on it soon.
