Wasn’t hard getting a medical card

Recreational marijuana is still not permitted in our state, medical is allowed though.

I kind of figured getting a medical marijuana card would be next to impossible to get.

I figured it would be a lot of talking and paperwork, money and time. When my anxiety got to the point where I could hardly go to work, I was willing to do all the paperwork and talking necessary. I found a doctor’s office that specializes in medical marijuana prescriptions. I told the doctor what I wanted, got an appointment and I spoke with the doctor for maybe 10 minutes. I told him about my anxiety and panic attacks when going to work. I told him about my freak outs I would experience at my desk. The guy then wrote me a prescription for cannabis flowers and some oils. That was all that had to be done! I then was able to fill that prescription at a legal weed dispensary with no issue. It took me maybe two days in order to get weed in my hands. One day the doctors and the other day was picking up the cannabis products. I now have as much legal weed as I want to help out my anxiety. I am able to drive to work with no freak outs. I don’t panic over nothing and I can focus throughout the day. Yeah, the strains do have THC in them and that creates a high buzz. I have not noticed it affecting my life negatively at all though.

Trying to lessen my pain levels

When I started university cheerleading, I did not know it would follow me years after in life.

  • The experiences are ones that I will love forever, at one point I thought the pain would be with me forever.

After my school was up I experienced bad shoulder, back and arm pain due to cheering. My chronic pain got to the point that I was unable to do most things. I could hardly get up out of bed. Long vehicle rides were not easy on me and I would frequently have to crawl to get around. Going to the doctor did not prove to be honestly that helpful. I got massages, tried stretching and eating anti-inflammatory dinners. In my research online I found that a lot of people rely on CBD for medical concerns. They use CBD to treat depression, stress and inflammation. A ton of people also rely on CBD to manage pain levels. I was not completely optimistic that CBD from the marijuana plant could do anything for me. However, I was desperate for some relief and went to a cannabis dispensary. The budtender proposed a CBD oil. He told me to use a few drops in the morning and then do it again before I go to bed. There is no THC in the product so I wouldn’t be feeling high at all. The most the CBD would do was mellow me a bit. I don’t even notice the oil but I did notice that my pain levels are way better.

I wanted to learn about the medical effects of marijuana

Recreational and medical marijuana are okay in our state.

When I wanted to be a budtender it was highly proposed to take cannabis education classes.

I took a couple of classes named cannabis 101, marijuana sales training and budtender products training. I additionally made it a point to study about the medical effects of cannabis on the body. I planned to work in a recreational cannabis dispensary, but that did not mean there would not be people with severe medical troubles that wanted assistance. I wanted to know what strain was right for every medical concern. I wanted to know if smoking or using an edible was better. I additionally hoped to learn if CBD would be decent enough in particular cases. Medical cannabis training has been so great for my job; Even if I don’t have a customer with medical issues, it is nice being able to tell them what their strain could also be used for. Extreme cases like chemotherapy, seizures, PTSD and Alzheimer’s use medical marijuana. Some people use cannabis for nausea, anxiety, depression and chronic pain as well. You can also use cannabis just to sleep a little better at night. Most people coming into our dispensary are worried about the THC content and just want to have a fun time. It is rare, but when I do get someone with an issue, it is super nice knowing that I can help them with the right cannabis product. They are going to get help because I have the knowledge and want to do my job to the best of my capability.

Cannabis for PTSD treatment

When my friend Bob joined the army, I knew it was a horrible idea.

He is a sensitive type of guy and already had slight troubles with depression.

When my friend came back from the armed forces, he was a total mess. Bob has bad PTSD and bad anxiety. The dark, noise and crowds of people are triggers for him. Most people talked about taking him to a doctor and getting him a prescription. My friend has been known to abuse particular things in life. I did not want to provide him pills that he could possibly overdose with. I then started googling online what to do about anxiety and PTSD. I found that medical cannabis seems to be the thing that could help him. Medical marijuana has been known to stop the stress associated with PTSD and reduce anxiety significantly. After getting Bob a medical marijuana card, going into a dispensary was interesting. Bob and I did not know what to expect. The cannabis dispensary was honestly high end and had so many products to pick from. There were cannabis flowers, oils and edibles. Bob andI found all sorts of odd smoking devices. There were rolling papers, hand pipes, water pipes and bongs. The budtender at the dispensary was super knowledgeable and knew exactly what Bob needed. Now that he is relying on medical marijuana, our buddy is feeling so much better. He can sleep easier at night. Loud sounds don’t have him jumping off the walls. He also has been able to socialize.

 

medical marijuana facts

If you want great effects from your cannabis, vape at low temperatures

Learning about the effects and pharmacology of cannabis has been a slow but very rewarding journey for me.

I actually did believe I knew so much when I first tried it over 10 years ago.

I knew about the difference between sativas and indicas, how most say they experience stimulating effects from the former and sedating effects from the latter. I knew that there was a rudimentary difference between the experience of vaporizing different cannabis buds versus concentrates, not just for the higher concentration of THC in each and every hit, however also the array of cannabinoids and terpenes that are found in dried cannabis flowers. These cannabinoids and terpenes often become destroyed during the extraction procedure, with some extraction procedures bringing about better results than others. But there was something pressing about terpenes that took me many years to understand. I took it for granted that I experienced something weird with a sativa opposed to an indica, although I honestly assumed it had to do with CBD levels. I could not have been more wrong. Myrcene is a regular terpene that is often found in sedating strains of cannabis. Current pharmacologists actually believe that higher levels of myrcene in ratio to other terpenes is to blame for a single strain seeming more indica-like versus another. The dispensaries are definitely doing their best with what they have, however their employees are actually ignorant to these details. The cannabis dispensary workers often don’t even know that sativas were usually plants with longer leaves and indicas had shorter and more stout leaves. Either variety can have high or low levels of myrcene, which makes the traditional sativa-indica distinction especially problematic. It’s not the size of the leaf that truly determines the form or type of psychoactivity, nor does the whole psychoactivity tell you what kind of leaf that should be expected from the strain you’re consuming.

It is important to vape at low temperatures to gain the best effect from cannabis

Current pharmacologists believe that higher levels of myrcene in ratio to other terpenes is to blame for a single strain seeming more indica-like versus another.

Learning about the effects and pharmacology of cannabis has been an alarmingly slow but rewarding journey. I really thought I knew so much when I first tried it so many years back. I knew about the difference between sativas and indicas, how most allege to experience extremely stimulating effects from the former and sedating effects from the latter. I knew that there was a big difference between the experience of vaporizing cannabis buds versus concentrates. This was not just for the higher concentration of THC in every hit, but also the array of cannabinoids and terpenes that are present in dried cannabis buds. These cannabinoids and terpenes will actually be destroyed during the extraction process in many cases, with some extraction methods yielding better results than others. But there was something vital about terpenes that took me a long while to understand. I took it for granted that I experienced something much different with a sativa opposed to an indica. I guess I assumed it had to do with the varying CBD levels, but I was entirely wrong. Myrcene is a normal terpene in sedating strains of cannabis. Current pharmacologists believe that higher levels of myrcene in ratio to other terpenes is to blame for a single strain seeming more indica-like versus another. The dispensaries are certainly doing their best, but their employees are severely ignorant to these details. The dispensary workers often have no idea whatsoever that sativas were usually plants with longer leaves and indicas had short and fat leaves. Either variety of cannabis can have high or low levels of myrcene, which makes the traditional sativa-indica distinction rather problematic. It’s not the size of the leaf that determines the form or style of psychoactivity, nor does the whole psychoactivity tell you what kind of leaf to expect from the strain you are using.

I’m always happy to get a free lighter and rolling papers with cannabis purchases

I’m totally amazed at how extremely expensive butane lighters are in this day and age.

Even the name brand lighters seemed to be cheaper when I was a little kid, regardless of whether it was a tiny lighter or those really long ones used to light grills. I have tried to buy and use refillable lighters, however I have had all kinds of mixed results with the different lighters I have tried. I don’t know for certain if there is some special trick to getting the butane in the lighter effectively, but it seems like I leak the gas everywhere in the room when I try to fill a palm sized lighter. It gets all over my hands before evaporating a moment later. It can get so ice-cold that you can get a tiny bit of frostbite on your skin if it’s in contact with the nozzle as the gas is spewing out at full speed. Regardless of whether I’m lazy or just clumsy, I’d rather just get those pre filled lighters instead of trying to refill my own all the time. I smoke a decent amount of cannabis flower every month so I am in constant need of at least a few lighters at any given moment in my life. The last thing I want to do is notice that I lost my only lighter when I desperately need to light up with some good cannabis bud. My number one cannabis dispensary is now giving all of their clients a free lighter and a pack of rolling papers for every $50 you spend. It’s truly excellent being able to use a butane lighter without having to spend the money to buy them myself. I love the fact that you get a great brand name lighter that was simply rebranded with the dispensary’s logo. You’re getting the same lighter for free that costs at least $3 at the local gas stations.

We get free lighters when we order at least $50 on cannabis products

I’m astonished at how costly butane lighters are now.

Even the name brand lighters seemed to be cheaper when I was a great deal younger, regardless of whether it was a small lighter or a longer one used to light grills.

I have made an attempt to buy and use refillable lighters, but I have experienced mixed results with the ones I have tried. I don’t honestly know if there is some trick to getting the butane in the lighter the best way, however it seems as though I leak the gas all over the room every single time I make an attempt to fill a tiny palm sized lighter. It gets all over my hands before evaporating a bit later. It can get so frosty that you can get a tiny bit of frostbite on your skin if it’s in immediate contact with the nozzle as the gas is blasting out at full speed. Regardless of whether I’m lazy or just clumsy, I’d rather just pick up pre filled lighters instead of trying to refill my own on a regular basis. I smoke a really huge amount of cannabis flowers every month so I am in constant need of multiple lighters at any given moment. The last thing I want to do is realize I lost my only lighter when I desperately need to light up with some cannabis. My number one cannabis dispensary is now supplying all of their regular customers a free lighter and a pack of rolling papers if you spend over $50 with every single order. It’s really great being able to use a butane lighter without having to spend the money to buy them on my own. And the best part is that they are a quality brand name lighter that was basically rebranded with the dispensary’s logo. You’re getting the same lighter at no cost that costs $3 at the gas stations.

They are always sold out at my local cannabis dispensary

I have to be seriously diligent and check the online menu whenever the cannabis dispensary has new items in stock

I was absolutely stunned to see the drastic turn around in public opinion on cannabis after legalization passed in our state. At first there was a sizable pushback by right wing groups and others who wished to keep the medicine in an illegal black market. But everyday more people are trying it and experiencing the life changing effects directly for themselves. It is completely defying and transcending political ideology. Just ask the people who are able to get over their seizures or the cancer patients who are abruptly capable of eating again. I actually got going with smoking marijuana in school as a means of coping with the stress and the anxiety that I had to deal with back then. When I purchased a vaporizer, I started to enjoy the plant way more than I used to. I learned later that I was unlocking additional cannabinoids that easily become destroyed when you combust the flower by putting the flame to it. To this day my favorite means of consuming cannabis is definitely by vaporizing the flower buds. The only complication that I’m facing is constant low stock at my closest cannabis dispensaries. It would seem that I’m not the only person who prefers buying cannabis flower buds to vaporize. I have to be seriously diligent and check the online menu whenever the cannabis dispensary has new items in stock. If I can make an online order ahead of going to the cannabis dispensary to get our marijuana, I can typically get flower buds before they are sold out. There are even those times during the week where you can get flowers at a reduced price if you make the choice to buy it in bulk. It’s totally amazing to get an ounce with numerous different strains inside for as low as $200.

People are always rushing to buy all the cannabis buds at my dispensary

I was astonished to see the dire turn around in public opinion on cannabis after legalization eventually passed in our home state. At first there was a pretty serious pushback by right wing groups and others who wished to keep the medicine in an illegal black market. But everyday more people are choosing to try it for the first time and experiencing the life changing effects for themselves. It is actually defying and transcending political ideology of all kinds, just ask the people who stave off their seizures or the cancer patients who are suddenly able to eat again. I actually began smoking marijuana back in university as a means of coping with the tremendous amount of stress and the anxiety and depression that comes along with it. When I purchased a vaporizer, I started to care about the plant more than ever before. I was able to learn that I was unlocking additional cannabinoids that get destroyed when you combust the flower by smoking it. To this day I prefer consuming cannabis by vaporizing the flower buds. The only actual concern that I’m facing is constant low stock at our cannabis dispensaries. Seemingly I’m not the only person who prefers getting cannabis flower buds to vaporize. I have to be diligent and regularly check the online menu whenever the dispensary gets new deliveries. If I can make an online order before heading out to the dispensary to buy our marijuana supplies, I can usually get flower buds before they are out of stock. There are certain times of the week where you can get flowers at a reduced price if you buy it in bulk. It’s truly wonderful to get an ounce with 4 different strains inside for only a little over $200.
