Stress is a big factor in my day to day life.
- From the time I was in middle school, I have dealt with the adverse effects of stress.
My symptoms usually include anxiety, feelings of dread and complete spiritual exhaustion. The truth is that I’m just not built the same as everyone else. My stress limits are very low and when I go past them, there are sudden consequences for sure. These mornings I find relief with a road trip over to the local cannabis spot. But while I was in highschool, my mom had the doc put myself and others on antidepressant meds. These meds had a substantial effect on my life. I sort of just was removed and unemotional. I believe it was better than geeking out but it was no way to live. So when I was first introduced to recreational marijuana when I was at university, it was a complete and utter game changer for me. I have no program about what the strain or the THC content but the first time I used marijuana, I saw my life through a beautiful prism. It was love the air going out of the ballon and being filled with sunshine. This was not at all lost on me. When I got out of school, I weaned off the meds. And now, I just make sure that I drive to the local cannabis spot for some hybrid strains or some sativa strains. Pretty much 3 or 4 times per week using my goodies from the cannabis dispensary is all it takes to balance and release my stresses. And as long as the cannabis dispensary has what I need, I’ll be showing up there a handful of times per month with a big smile on my face.
