About the Author
Like many of you, I work. I parent. I cook. I clean. I support. I make many trips to Target and Trader Joe’s. I have a lot of stress to manage and not enough hours in the day.
I live in California, so of course I am familiar with cannabis as medicine. That said – I always saw cannabis as something to either get you high or something to use if you were really, really sick. Really sick. And that wasn’t me.
Long story short, I decided to give cannabis a try as medicine in October 2016. I’m a very confident person but I found the whole experience to be really seedy and intimidating. From the doctor who Skyped in to the trying-to-be-medical-looking dispensary with the pot smell. The cash. The “budtenders” dressed in black with tattoos. Trying to find low-dose products in a sea of not-so-low-dose products.
A lot of footwork and many, many questions later… I did it, and it works.
I consider myself pretty mainstream, but definitely out of the norm as far the typical clientele goes in the dispensary. Yet, I’ve had such a powerfully positive experience using cannabis in low doses to help manage stress and insomnia.
I feel compelled to pass along what I’ve learned, and I sincerely hope this helps you in some way, even if it’s to rule it out!
