I can hardly believe what’s gone down in just the last couple of years. Of course, we all experienced the difficulties brought on by the pandemic. I don’t think there were many out there who didn’t have to find a new normal due to Covid. But I also lost my dad and faced daunting challenges with career and health. I can hardly believe that I’m actually feeling like I’m coming out on the other side. A great deal of thanks for that is due to discovering cannabis. I’m a bit late to the marijuana party as I just didn’t partake when I was younger. There are a lot of reasons for that but it was mainly due to the fact that it was just illegal. Even the summer jobs I had in college required a drug test back then. So I just steered clear of recreational marijuana altogether. But man, am I ever thankful that I live in a state where there is access to cannabis. After my dad died, I was adrift and just couldn’t get past my grief. That was quickly followed by a cancer scare that forced me to re-evaluate everything. This was also how I accessed the local cannabis spot for the first time. Medical marijuana not only helped me through the treatments but got me to remission as well. And from there, the sativa and indica strains that I get at the cannabis dispensary have been essential in all the lifestyle changes I’ve made. I’m just so thankful to have been able to navigate such an intense time and not come out feeling sorry for myself. Medical marijuana has been the reason for that I’m just so grateful to have access to cannabis products.
