Stress is a very real factor in my life.
From the time I was in middle school, I have dealt with the adverse effects of stress.
And those symptoms include anxiety, feelings of dread and complete spiritual exhaustion. The truth is that I’m just not built like everyone else. My stress limits are real and when I go past them, there are immediate consequences for sure. These days I find relief with a trip to the local cannabis spot. But during highschool, my mom had the doctor put me on antidepressant meds. These meds had a really weird effect on my life. I sort of just was detached and unemotional. I guess it was better than freaking out but it was no way to live. So when I was first introduced to recreational marijuana when I was in college, it was a complete and utter game changer for me. I have no idea what the strain or the THC content but the first time I used marijuana, I saw my life through a whole new prism. It was like the air going out of the ballon and being filled with sunshine. This was not lost on me. When I got out of school, I weaned off the meds. And now, I just make sure that I get to the local cannabis spot for some hybrid strains or some sativa strains. Pretty much 3 to 4 times per week using my goodies from the cannabis dispensary is all it takes to balance and release my stress. And as long as the cannabis dispensary has what I need, I’ll be showing up there a couple times per month with a big smile on my face.
