I have always had problems getting to sleep.
Once I manage to get to sleep, I have trouble staying asleep. I have terrifying nightmares that often wake me several times a night, at which point I am too stressed and anxious to fall back asleep. It’s an ugly, dangerous cycle, one that has been wearing out my body and my mind. I spoke to my therapist about it, and she recommended that I try using medical cannabis before bed. The goal is to settle my mind, and mute my harmful thoughts, so that I can enjoy a night of natural sleep. I went to the medical cannabis shop and spent a half hour chatting with one of the young budtenders there. This was my first visit to a medical cannabis dispensary, and it was absolutely lovely. I expected to find a head shop, or a pharmacy, but these people were professionals who took medical cannabis very seriously. We spent a while talking about my specific issues, so that they could determine the most helpful kinds of medical cannabis products for me to use. I tried some cannabis gummies that were also infused with CBD oil. I also tried vape products for the first time, and I must say that the vape combined with the gummies really did the trick. I am hesitant to smoke strains of medical cannabis, but I am very much enjoying the effects of vape products and edibles. With the assistance of the budtenders at the medical cannabis dispensary, I am getting the best sleep of my life.
