A buddy of mine who I hadn’t seen in a very long time gave me a bit of a brutal assessment.
This was a guy I was very close with when we were in college and graduate school.
So it’s a guy who knows me well and whose opinion I trust. Back in those days, we enjoyed a fair amount of recreational marijuana. Of course back then, you couldn’t just stop by the cannabis dispensary on the way home from work. What we got back then was whatever we could get. Sometimes sativa and sometimes indica but rarely any hybrid strains. Plus, we never knew just what the THC content was in any of the cannabis we were using. My friend and I used recreational marijuana as a way to unwind and balance out all the stress from our rigorous studies. And it really helped. That buddy came to visit for a weekend. Before he left, he told me that I appeared off center and not balanced when it came to work and my life. He told me that he was honestly worried about me. This caught my attention. That weekend was the first time I had used recreational marijuana in a long time. And it felt great. So, I took my buddy’s advice and dialed back the stress for a better work and life balance. I’m also mixing in stops at the cannabis dispensary for some sativa strains that are helping me to relax and refresh. I’m thankful my friend came to town and I got that feedback. Now, all I have to do is keep it in mind and relax a bit more with some recreational marijuana.
