I was delighted 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, then however, as I’ve experimented with different consumption methods & strains, I’ve begun to cherish cannabis more for its medicinal benefits.
I’ve found that this plant-based remedy is charmingly effective in treating a wide variety of health complications. I’ve gone from only smoking flower to experimenting with edibles, beverages, tinctures, vapes & topicals. I shop for hybrid joints to help with relaxation. At the end of a long, tiring & particularly stressful morning, lighting up & inhaling those incredible cannabinoids & terpenes works to mellow me out. I’ve read that cannabis can trigger a dopamine response that leads to joyful feelings & a more positive mood, but because of my job, I suffer from chronic pain in my joints & muscle tension, then my shoulders, hips, neck & back often ache. I sometimes experience muscle cramps. Topicals & tinctures are a great combination for pain relief. I choose products that are high in CBD & cause no psychoactive effects. I can apply cannabis-infused ointments or balms directly to the problem part for localized relief many times per morning. I combine the topicals with the sublingual absorption of tinctures for a synergistic treatment. I’ve also found that this partnership of tinctures & topicals can reduce inflammation, swelling & get rid of headaches. I use cannabis to help me fall asleep at evening. I use it to get motivated for a workout & to lessen the pain of sunburns, bee stings & bug bites.
