Cannabis (weed) is legal for recreational use here in Alaska. It's regulated just like alcohol (more heavily than alcohol. I can't even walk into a dispensary without showing ID but I can browse a liquor store no problem)
If you take issue with my "using drugs" I'd sincerely hope you don't drink alcohol...because my experiences with being really drunk are a lot different from being really high.
I use it like I did when I was prescribed narcotics: Sensibly. In fact, I'm more sensible with cannabis than I ever was with alcohol.
This blog does not condone illegal drug use. If cannabis is not legal where you live I suggest you join the rally to legalize it.
I have chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, and a slew of weird symptoms I'm currently working with a doctor to decode.
Cannabis makes me functional.
Honestly, it makes me a better parent because just having it in my system (even if I'm not "feeling high") controls my anxiety.
A quick hit in the morning keeps me from randomly dry heaving the first few hours of the day.
A joint before bed works better at helping me sleep than any medication I've tried.
I don't wake up groggy, swollen, or sick like I do with alcohol.
Edibles calm a migraine and keep me from wanting to try DIY Trepanning (where they cut a hole in your skull to release pressure).
I won't get into a lot of strain/type detail in this post or it will be stupid long and most people will quit reading it.
Drop your questions down below and I'll go about answering specifics in my next post!
