It’s taking me a bit of time to get my head around marijuana. It’s a new sort of intoxicating effect compared to liquor, & I wouldn’t compare it to any prescription medication either; I have never tried any hard pills, but I drank my fair share of liquor while I was in school & for years after the fact. Back then I had only tried weed once, but it was fairly mild & I didn’t actually notice any real effects. The drinking had to stop when I had kids, & it became a promise to my husband that I would get clean before we had a baby. I felt like a new woman, but there were anxieties that had stayed stalking beneath the surface. Once I removed the substance I was using to self-medicate, I realized there were big complications I was having in my subconscious mind that I had been burying away with liquor abuse. My husband had used cannabis on & off in the past & urged myself and others to try it. If I could get something natural that fixed my mental health issues, that would be fantastic. I got a medical card in our house state so I could shop at the cannabis shops here. Because of my history with stress, the budtenders told me to try an indica strain first before going to a sativa strain. I feel it was a lot stronger than he let on, because a single hit of it had me so tired and sleepy. I took another hit & fell asleep on my living room sofa for five hours. It was a lot stronger than I thought it would be, but the effects were great. The marijuana has given me a sense of calmness that I had never felt before. Now I’m happy to go back to the cannabis dispensary to get even more cannabis products.
