I just adore the concept of a plant that grows in the wild. It is totally free and natural. It is a weed, but good for my health. That weed is legal cannabis. And it has had an enormous impact on both my physical plus emotional health. What makes it even more amazing is the fact that this weed, prior to it being allowed to smoke, was so demonized. I guess that I was really excited to have legal weed come to this area. It’s something that has been a long time in the making and having legal cannabis is a big deal to me. The idea that I can access a cannabis store near me is such a big pro. For years, I have gone the way of modern medicine to deal with health complications that I guess were due to emotional issues. And prior to legal weed, I had to rely on all manner of antidepressant pills. Yet, they never entirely were as effective as I hoped they would be. Second, the physical side effects were scary at times. It just wasn’t something that I could continue to do. Finally, one of my friends took me to a marijuana dispensary where she lived. This was a 1st for me. While I had experimented with recreational weed in college, I hadn’t tried it since. When I tried the legal cannabis this time, I was shocked at how I felt. There was a peacefulness and calm that I recognized immediately. These were feelings I hadn’t been able to attain in so long. It was like someone was giving everything back.
