It’s taking me time to get my brain used to marijuana.
It’s a different sort of intoxicating effect compared to alcohol, and I wouldn’t compare it to any prescription drugs either.
I have never tried any hard drugs, but I drank my fair share of alcohol while I was in college years ago and for years after the fact. Back then I had only tried marijuana once, but it was fairly weak and I didn’t really notice any discernible effects. The drinking had to stop when I got married, and it became a promise to my wife that I would get clean before we said our vows. I felt like a changed person, but there were anxieties that had stayed lurking beneath the surface. Once I removed the substance I was using to self-medicate, I realized there were psychological issues I was having in my subconscious mind that I had been burying away with alcohol abuse. My wife had used cannabis on and off in the past and urged me to try it. If I could get something natural that fixed my mental health problems, that would be fantastic. I got a medical card in our home state so I could shop at the cannabis dispensaries here. Because of my history with anxiety, the budtenders told me to try an indica strain first before going to a speedy sativa strain. I guess it was a lot stronger than he let on, because one hit of Silicon Valley OG had me ready to pass out. I took another hit and fell asleep on my living room couch for five hours. It was a lot stronger than I thought it would be, but the effects were amazing. The marijuana gave me a sense of calmness that I had never felt before. Now I’m excited to go back to the cannabis dispensary to get even more cannabis products.
