I grew up in the city in an apartment across the street from the park.
It wasn’t the best neighborhood and I often woke up to the sound of gunshots.
Even though I moved away from the city when I was twelve, I still woke up in the middle of the night with bad dreams. I continued to have problems sleeping until I was in college. When I was a junior and 21 years old, one of the medical professionals suggested trying medical marijuana to help me sleep better at night. I smoked weed with my friends a couple of times when I was in high school and once during a party at a frat, but I definitely didn’t sleep. The doctor told me that there are lots of different types of marijuana and some of the strains do not make you feel awake and energetic. I agreed to meet with a specialist so I could find out more information about medical marijuana. The specialist discussed using marijuana as a treatment option and I attended a seminar that provided me with more information about using medical marijuana. The seminar was very informative and helpful. It included the side effects that can happen and it also included lots of research that approved marijuana can help with a variety of ailments. After going to the educational seminar, I met with my doctor again and agreed that medical marijuana could be helpful with insomnia. I began a daily regimen of using medical marijuana at night. I ate an edible pot brownie every evening before bed and I spent most of the night feeling relaxed.
