I had trouble convincing my mother to visit the cannabis dispensary.
She grew up believing the negative propaganda promoted by the federal government.
She always taught me to stay away from marijuana. For a long time, she was not willing to even consider consuming cannabis. Both medical and recreational cannabis are now legal in our home state. All we need is a valid government identification proving that we’re over the age of twenty-one to shop cannabis products. My mother is eighty-one years old and has some issues with her hips. The prescription medication she was taking caused numerous side-effects, such as dizziness and stomach upset. I have been a supporter of cannabis for quite some time. I’ve found that it is effective in treating pain, swelling, headaches, stress and insomnia. I enjoy the social aspects of sharing a joint with friends. I much prefer cannabis over alcohol. I explained to my mother that cannabis is a plant-based, natural remedy. No one has ever died from an overdose of weed. I also recommended that she try CBD products. While CBD is one of the most abundant natural cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant, it doesn’t cause any psychoactive effects. However, it has proven beneficial as a medicinal treatment of a long list of health concerns. When my mother finally accompanied me to the dispensary, she was extremely impressed with the facility. She was also surprised by the friendly, helpful and knowledgeable budtenders. She felt comfortable asking questions and agreed to purchase a CBD tincture and a CBD topical. Now that she knows which products work best for her, she can easily order online and have them delivered.
