I was blissful when recreational weed was legalized in my state.
When I first began shopping at the dispensary, I was strictly looking for high THC products for recreational enjoyment, however, as I’ve experimented with odd consumption methods and strains, I’ve begun to enjoy cannabis more for its medicinal benefits. I’ve found that this plant-based remedy is wonderfully effective in treating a wide variety of health complications. I’ve gone from only smoking flower to experimenting with edibles, beverages, tinctures, vapes and topicals. I shop for hybrid joints to help with relaxation. At the end of a long, tiring and recognizably stressful day, lighting up and inhaling those incredible cannabinoids and terpenes works to mellow me out. I’ve learn that cannabis can trigger a dopamine response that leads to joyful feelings and a more positive mood… Because of my job, I suffer from chronic pain in my joints and muscle tension, then my shoulders, hips, neck and back often ache. I periodically experience muscle cramps. Topicals and tinctures are a fantastic combination for pain relief. I choose products that are high in CBD and cause no psychoactive effects. I can apply cannabis-infused ointments or balms directly to the concern area for localized relief several times per day. I combine the topicals with the sublingual absorption of tinctures for a synergistic treatment. I’ve also found that this partnership of tinctures and topicals can reduce inflammation, swelling and get rid of headaches. I use cannabis to help me fall asleep at evening. I use it to get motivated for a workout and to lessen the pain of sunburns, bee stings and bug bites.
