The recreational marijuana dispensary offers home delivery for a fee

You have to account for the gasoline and the wages of the person making the deliveries.

I got used to home delivery over the past year, regardless of whether or not I’m shopping at a restaurant or a grocery store. It was easier and less stressful because I could suddenly avoid all of the people in public who refused to wear masks whenever they left their homes. Before the pandemic started, grocery shopping was still stressful for me because the aisles were always packed with people and the shelves were often empty when I needed specific products. This turned shopping into a highly stressful errand and forced me to avoid it at all costs until home delivery was finally launched during the pandemic. Obviously there were fees associated with using this service, but for me it was worth the added cost if I could avoid the stress from shopping and risk from being exposed to infectious people in public. The marijuana dispensaries were particularly stressful during the pandemic. Before then it was hard enough showing up on a random afternoon and finding what you wanted, let alone the added stress of being crammed in a claustrophobic lobby for an hour or two at a time while others were going maskless. When the cannabis dispensaries finally unveiled their home delivery programs, I was ecstatic. Many people complained that they were charging for delivery, but I understand. You have to account for the gasoline and the wages of the person making the deliveries. Thankfully my favorite cannabis dispensary has free delivery on all orders over $100. On any order lower than $100, the delivery fee is $10. Since I usually order at least $150 worth of products at a time, I always get free delivery.

The cannabis store was easily closed down after falsifying lab tests

There are plenty of negatives to how states have handled legalizing marijuana for medical as well as recreational use, though advocates are reluctant to admit this.

First of all, it’s not the dreadful situation that anti-cannabis people harped about for years.

Sure, it’s not too challenging for teens to get access to the drug, but it’s also true that legalizing it has dramatically lowered the size as well as impact of the black market marijuana trade. The actual negatives have more to do with how the markets are regulated as well as supervised by the state. For instance, it takes a fairly crazy amount of money to get a license to grow as well as sell marijuana in our state, so much so that I can truly count all of our cannabis producers on just two hands. This gives them a small amount of incentive to compete on quality once they achieve access to the market. On top of that, various states have bungled the lab testing requirements for cannabis producers. I sincerely didn’t realize that various states never required separate lab testing for marijuana producers, regardless of whether or not it happened to be a medical or recreational cannabis market. Once lab testing started to become a regular thing, various cannabis companies started testing in-house. It should be obvious that there is a pretty large amount of corruption at play when it comes to in-house testing, but it didn’t get too much better once the lab requirement was created in our state for third-party testing only. I read about dispensaries attempting to shop around at various lab tests offering to pay extra for data showing higher THC levels as well as extremely low contaminant counts. One medical cannabis store was officially shut down after getting busted falsifying the official lab paperwork.

The cannabis shop shouldn’t have falsified the lab tests

There are a few negatives to how states have been legalizing marijuana for both medical plus recreational uses, regardless of the fact that advocates are entirely reluctant to acknowledge this.

First of all, it’s not the nightmare scenario that anti-cannabis people were screaming about for years. Sure, it’s a little bit easier for teens to get access to the drug, however it’s also true that legalizing it has significantly reduced the size plus impact of the black market marijuana trade. The actual negatives have more to do with how the markets are regulated plus supervised by the state. For example, it takes a very large amount of currency to get a license to grow plus sell marijuana in our state, so much so that I can count all of our cannabis producers on my actual hands. This gives them not very much incentive to compete on quality once they achieve access to the market. On top of that, many states have bungled the lab testing requirements for cannabis producers. I truly didn’t realize that so many states never required any independent lab testing for marijuana producers, regardless of whether or not it was a medical or recreational cannabis market. Once lab testing started to become a standard, quite a few cannabis companies started testing in-house. Obviously there is a huge amount of corruption at play with in-house testing, however it didn’t get better once the independent lab requirement was created in our state. I was able to learn about dispensaries attempting to shop around at lab tests offering to pay extra currency for data showing higher THC levels plus low contaminant amounts. One medical cannabis store was closed after getting busted falsifying independent lab paperwork.

Cannabis stores falsifying lab results get shut down

I read about dispensaries making an attempt to shop around at lab tests offering to pay more money for data showing higher THC levels plus low contaminant counts

There are a few downsides to how states have taken care of legalizing marijuana for both medical plus recreational purposes, though advocates are completely reluctant to accept this. First of all, it’s not the brutal situations that anti-cannabis people harped about for a number of years. Sure, it’s easier for teens to acquire the drug, however it’s also the case that legalizing it has totally reduced the size plus overall impact of the black market marijuana trade. The true downsides have more to do with how the markets are regulated plus supervised by the state. For instance, it takes a pretty large amount of cash to get a license to grow plus sell marijuana in our state, so much so that I can easily count all of our cannabis producers on my own hands. This doesn’t give them much incentive to compete on quality once they acquire access to the market. Also, several states have bungled the lab testing requirements for cannabis producers. I didn’t even know that several states never required lab testing for marijuana producers that were third-party. This was regardless of whether or not it was a medical or recreational cannabis market. Once lab testing started to become a standard, several cannabis companies started testing everything in-house. Clearly there is a huge amount of corruption going on with in-home testing, however it didn’t get much better once the third party lab requirement was eventually created in our state. I read about dispensaries making an attempt to shop around at lab tests offering to pay more money for data showing higher THC levels plus low contaminant counts. One medical cannabis store was completely shut down after getting busted falsifying a bunch of paperwork.

Cannabis shop shut down after falsifying lab results

When lab testing started to become a standard, several cannabis companies began testing in-house.

There are certain drawbacks to how states have handled legalizing marijuana for medical and recreational purposes. Of course, advocates are reluctant to admit to this. First of all, it’s not the nightmare situations that anti-cannabis people harped about for numerous years. Sure, it’s more simple for teens to get access to the drug, but it’s also true that legalizing it has seriously reduced the size and impact of the black market marijuana trade. The real problems have more to do with how the markets are regulated and supervised by the state. For example, it takes a ridiculous amount of cash to get a license to grow and sell marijuana in our state, so much so that I can count all of our cannabis producers on my own two hands. This gives them little incentive to compete on quality once they eventually gain access to the market. On top of that, numerous states have bungled the lab testing requirements for cannabis producers. I didn’t even know that several states never required third-party lab testing for marijuana producers, regardless of whether or not it was a medical or recreational cannabis market. When lab testing started to become a standard, several cannabis companies began testing in-house. Obviously there is a great deal of corruption at play with in-home testing, but it didn’t get much better once the third-party lab requirement was created in our state. I learned about dispensaries attempting to shop around at lab tests offering to pay more cash for data showing even higher THC levels and low contaminant counts. One medical cannabis store was completely shut down after getting busted falsifying third-party lab paperwork.

Recovery plan runs through the legal weed shop

Perhaps the best part of being in a hideous bike accident is the fact that I don’t remember it at all.

There are parts of that moring that I can recall.

But getting on the bike was not anywhere close to one of my memories. This is probably another blessing in disguise regarding what I’m dealing now. Another one of the blessings that I’m so thankful for is that I live somewhere that medical marijuana is legal. The fact that I was able to navigate the cannabis regulations in order to get access to a cannabis dispensary is essential in my recovery. I was hit hard from the side by a car while riding my bike. The hit did all sorts of damage to my legs, a shoulder and my back. Fortunately though, my helmet kept my noodle together. My body was broken and my recovery was stalled. I was also working on an addiction to the pain meds. That’s when I pulled the trigger on figuring out how to get a medical marijuana card. After learning of the medical marijuana benefits for managing pain, I was in. What I didn’t realize was how motivating the cannabis products would end up being for me. Once I started with the medical marijuana, it didn’t take me all that long to wean off the pain meds. And from there, I was pleased to find a positive outlook and a renewed sense of purpose for my physical therapy. Medical marijuana had just about everything to do with all of that. Plus, I’m not going to end up a junkie using medical marijuana as a pain management tool.

I knew a long time ago that cannabis products helps glaucoma

I’m in my mid-fifties and like my dad before me, I have dealt with borderline interocular pressure that is a precursor to glaucoma.

When I was about 16, I had to start going to the eye doctor every six months to keep a read on the eye pressure.

Funny thing though, when I was in college, my eye pressure dropped dramatically. That has everything to do with the fact that I was using cannabis flower products regularly. While medical marijuana was still a long way away, I knew that cannabis products were helping my eye pressure. Even back then, there were some studies that indicated cannabis products could have some effect on interocular eye pressure. But for me, it was remarkable. Until I got a job where I was drug tested randomly and had to stop the cannabis products use did my eye pressure begin to rise once again. Fortunately, I now live in a state where medical marijuana is legal. Once I figured out how to get a medical marijuana card, I then started going to the legal weed shop. There I met staff members who were really expert in cannabis products. I told them about my borderline glaucoma and that I still wanted to treat it naturally with medical marijuana. They new just what cannabis flower product to go to in order to make that happen. Granted, a lot has changed in treating glaucoma since I was in my teens and twenties. But the fact of the matter remains that if I can advance my eye health with medical cannabis, then that’s exactly what I’m going to do.

Chronic pain relief with some chronic is pretty ironic

There is not a single thing funny or ironic about living with chronic pain.

  • I can attest to that given I have lived with it for nearly 10 years.

But now that I have found such relief with medical marijuana, I have to acknowledge the irony there. I’m using the chronic for chronic pain. This was pointed out to me by my college age son and we both had a great laugh. Let me tell you, there is far more laughter in my life now that I have access to a weed dispensary. Prior to using cannabis, I rarely even smiled. But it’s not so easy to smile when you are living with pain that is just so totally debilitating. There were periods of time where I could do nothing but try to lay still. And when that didn’t work, I took meds that basically just knocked me out. This is no way to live a life, I can assure you. So when my son sent my some information on medical marijuana, I was open to looking into the possibility. I had never used pot before and sort of had a preconceived negative feeling to marijuana in general. However, the more I read and learned, the more I realized that what I knew about cannabis was wrong. Once I got my prescription for medical marijuana, I called the weed store for pot delivery because I was embarrassed to go in. Now that I have gotten my life back to a large degree thanks to cannabis, I am proud to spread the word on medical marijuana. But I still like the convenience of the cannabis delivery.

Freeing myself from anxiety with nature’s help

Living with anxiety and depression was really all I ever knew.

And that is a sad state of affairs.

Yet, I can’t ever remember a time where I wasn’t scared, depressed or dreading life. It was just a default perspective to me. And it was just such a painful way to go through life. I can’t say whether or not I will ever be completely free of anxiety. But with the help of medical cannabis, I am indeed seeing that life just has so much to offer. I think this may be a key element for anyone dealing with depression and anxiety. It filters just everything a person experiences so it makes it so hard to see a reason to keep trudging through life. Now that I have a medical marijuana card, I have access a dispensary near me and that has changed my life. I mean totally changed my life unlike any antidepressant or any other medication I have ever taken. And I have taken such a vast array of prescription meds. Cannabis was an immediate game changer for me. There was a near instant lifting of the filter I referenced. Suddenly, I could sort of see and sense what others did naturally. The first time I used weed that I got from the medical marijuana store, it was an epiphany. There was a sense of beauty and possibility where there had only been fear and dread. Plus, I love the how supportive and compassionate the people at the weed store are. It’s been a remarkable experience.
