When sports taks center stage of life

Sports have been a big part of our life for as long as I can remember.

My parents consistently had myself and others in some sort of organized athletics.

Probably to wear down our energy. I was a bit of a handful. But I have now added a new element in legal weed to a more holistic approach to athletic interest. This may sound quite absurd to many. That is to be understood given all the heightened attention on recreational marijuana in pro athletic interests. Well, I was never quite great enough to go pro but I was close. And I would no more have used recreational cannabis than I would have had a fat based diet. But that was a misconception that legal weed has finally cleared up for me. I’m still a competitive athlete however I’m well into our forties now. And those trips to the marijana dispensary really help with our reclaim process. I’m not going to lie and say I don’t also love the high that comes with using recreational pot. That’s space for great stuff as well. But the health benefits of recreational weed are also so important. And that’s especially for a guy our age whose body doesn’t reclaim as it once did. The legal weed allows myself and others to sort of slow things down a bit with yoga and breathing exercises that are so restorative for both body and mind. It may sound sort of counter intuitive to use recreational weed as a competitive athlete. But I can assure anyone who asks to check the research and check the data.

Approaching sports wholistically

Sports have been a giant area of my life for as long as I can remember.

My parents consistently had me in some sort of organized athletics.

Probably to wear down my energy. I was a bit of a handful. But I have now added a modern element in legal weed to a more holistic approach to athletic activity. This may sound quite absurd to many. That is to be understood given all the heightened attention on recreational marijuana in pro athletic activities. Well, I was never quite good enough to go pro but I was close. And I would no more have used recreational cannabis than I would have had a fat based diet. But that was a misconception that legal weed has finally cleared up for me. I’m still a competitive athlete but I’m well into my forties now. And those trips to the marijana dispensary honestly help with my reclaim process. I’m not going to lie as well as say I don’t also prefer the high that comes with using recreational pot. That’s an area of the good stuff as well. But the health benefits of recreational weed are also so important. And that’s especially for a man my age whose body doesn’t reclaim as it once did. The legal weed allows me to sort of slow things down a bit with yoga as well as breathing exercises that are so restorative for both body as well as mind. It may sound sort of counter intuitive to use recreational weed as a competitive athlete. But I can assure anyone who asks to check the research as well as check the data.

Adding holistic element to sport

Sports have been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember.

My parents always had me in some sort of organized athletics.

Probably to wear down my energy. I was a bit of a handful. But I have now added a new element in legal weed to a more holistic approach to sport. This may sound quite absurd to many. That is to be understood given all the heightened attention on recreational marijuana in pro sports. Well, I was never quite good enough to go pro but I was close. And I would no more have used recreational cannabis than I would have had a fat based diet. But that was a misconception that legal weed has finally cleared up for me. I’m still a competitive athlete but I’m well into my forties now. And those trips to the marijana dispensary really help with my recovery process. I’m not going to lie and say I don’t also enjoy the high that comes with using recreational pot. That’s part of the good stuff as well. But the health benefits of recreational weed are also so important. And that’s especially for a man my age whose body doesn’t recover as it once did.

Life can be balanced if you use cannabis the right way

It doesn’t take all that much for meto slip right back into being too serious.

This is because living a more balanced & serene life is still pretty modern to me.

While I’m not a rookie, I’m still so, so far from being a sort of Yogi, then again our intention isn’t entirely to be Yogi. But with the help of the legal weed store, I am able to keep our head straight . Legal cannabis has been a legitimately sizable plus for me. For a long, long time, I was living a life that was wholly unsatisfying & even closer to suffering. It wasn’t nice & I nearly lost it a few times. Luckily for me, there are now marijuana dispensaries that I can visit to get the legal weed that helps myself and others recenter myself. This is essential business for myself and others as I have put our needs finally above our task, money or many relationships. I get help maintaining that perspective thanks to the marijuana dispensary. Without those trips I don’t assume life would be anywhere close to as rewarding as it now is. There is no doubt that I discovered recreational pot at a legitimately, legitimately nice time. Had legal cannabis not passed in our region, I would undoubtedly have been in entirely rough shape. I legitimately got motivated by a trip to the cannabis dispensary right after legal weed was available. It was just because I was curious. But thankfully, I was even-handed with the staff & they helped with the sort of recreational marijuana that has fundamentally changed our perspective.

Cannabis is still the king

Life is too short to settle for low quality merchandise. I enjoy a drink now and again, but when I do drink, it will be from the top shelf. If I am going to have whiskey I won’t drink rotgut, I will get the finest whiskey I can afford. One good shot is worth twenty bad ones, that’s my saying. When you spend more for quality, you need less of that thing. When you get a good car, it will last you for longer than a cheap car. When you buy the highest potency of cannabis, you don’t need a huge fat sack of it, just a little pinch. Blunts and joints are a good way to smoke ditch weed, because with low caliber marijuana you have to smoke a ton of it to feel anything. Compare that to one hit of Shatter, or even one of the higher end Sativas, and you will instantly see the difference. You get a longer, cleaner, higher high from a touch of quality cannabis than you do from smoking an entire eighth of garbage weed. The only tools I keep in my house for smoking are my dab rig, of course, and a one-hitter pipe for cannabis. For my money the dab rig is the best one-hit-and-quit way to get high, but sometimes I like the mouth feel of cannabis smoke. Good cannabis is a direct connection to Mother Nature, a plant that grows naturally, that opens your mind and lifts your spirits. As much as I love dabbing, cannabis is still the king.

My family history with the marijuana business

Grandma brought in some of her hippie botanist friends to help tend the cannabis crops, and grandpa was in charge of protecting everything.

My grandpa was a military man for years. He ended up resigning his post due to moral problems with the vietnam conflict, and then became an ardent opponent of the war. He was still pro-soldier, he just thought lives were being wasted needlessly in Vietnam. At one of the protests he attended, he met the woman who would be my grandma, a spritely hippie girl who caught his attention. They fell in love and ran off together, too happy to keep protesting. They ended up in the far north, where they started a marijuana farm to pay the bills and start a family. Fun fact, a lot of soldiers in Vietnam were exposed to marijuana, and got into the farming business once they returned home after the war. Combat vets growing cannabis was very common in the United States and up into Canada as well, and grandpa was one of them! They planted fields of marijuana plants, both to use for hemp production and cannabis sales, and started a major grow operation. Grandma brought in some of her hippie botanist friends to help tend the cannabis crops, and grandpa was in charge of protecting everything. When you are in the marijuana business, your rivals can often be underhanded, and that isn’t to mention the presence of local law enforcement. They made a formidable team, and were able to peaceably grow and sell marijuana for many years with no incidents. When my mom was old enough to start asking questions, they sold the entire marijuana operation to one of their rivals, and settled down to raise their family.

Cannabis all day every day

I am in late middle age now, and I still start each day with a huge bong rip.

This is not a mid-life crisis in play, it is how I had chosen to start the day for the last thirty or so years.

For many people, they see pot smokers as lazy layabouts, watching TV and playing video games, but this is so far from the truth! Most pot smokers are the people you interact with everyday, out and about in the world, and you would never guess that they are high. Obviously smoking cannabis in public is still against the law, for now, so I usually bring a THC infused vape pen to work with me, to use on breaks and at lunch. Since I also use a vape pen for nicotine, to help keep me off cigarettes, no one ever thinks twice when I use the THC vape pen instead. No one knows the difference, so that makes the days at work go nice and chill, although vaping is no replacement for real cannabis, it still gets the job done. Since I am basically always ripped on some form of marijuana, no one ever thinks that I am high because I am always the same. No one would think it would be humanly possible to be high all day, every day, but these people underestimate my cannabis consumption. I know it isn’t super healthy, but I have quit cigarettes and alcohol both, so cannabis has to be my one and only vice, and I’m really making it count.

Cousin Mike has his own cannabis dispensary

There were pipes and bongs of all shapes and sizes, a custom made gas mask, a gravity bong, and a few ways to smoke cannabis that I had frankly never heard of before

In the break between semesters, I went up north to spend some time with my cousin Mike. Mike and I used to be thick as thieves when we were kids, but it had been a lot of years since we had hung out together. We had started to connect on Facebook over the pandemic, and now that things were opening back up I wanted to go see him again. I knew that we had a lot in common, and he had some fun stuff lined up for us to do. I also knew he was big-time into cannabis, just like me, so I was excited to see what kind of green they had in the big city. Any expectations I had were shattered long before I stepped into a cannabis dispensary, just with what I saw at Mike’s apartment. There was an antique wooden bureau in his bedroom, and when he opened it up I saw dozens of class jars of cannabis. All colors of the rainbow, various densities and degrees of fluffiness, a dazzling array of cannabis. It was as if Mike had collected his own little cannabis dispensary in his room, and every drawer in the bureau was filled with implements of smoking. There were pipes and bongs of all shapes and sizes, a custom made gas mask, a gravity bong, and a few ways to smoke cannabis that I had frankly never heard of before. I am not sure what the fun things Mike had planned for us to do, because the entire trip was spent in a thick haze of cannabis smoke.

Developing a cannabis cafe

I like the idea because I can start small, with a booth in the corner of the cannabis dispensary, and we can focus on baked goods and edibles.

The key to succeeding in business is to make the right move before anyone else does. You need to be ahead of the curve for long enough that you finally set the curve. Take Google, for example — Google no longer has competition, they run the entire internet with very little competition. They set the curve for everyone else to follow, so there are no competitors for the market share. Over the last few months there have been several new cannabis dispensaries opening up in this city, and so I need to stay ahead of them. My cannabis dispensary was the first in town, and we have a strong, loyal client base, but I can’t just sit back and rest, that will allow the other guys time to catch up! Instead I need to push forward, evolve or die, as they say, and I like the idea of a cannabis cafe. I like the idea because I can start small, with a booth in the corner of the cannabis dispensary, and we can focus on baked goods and edibles. A line of gourmet cannabis muffins and ladyfingers will be attractive to the eye and hopefully make some good sales. Depending on how that test goes, we can expand into the empty store next door, which has a limited kitchen, and host a real cannabis cafe with a full menu. The place is big enough that it could also host live music, and if this place had food and music it would be the go-to, must-see cannabis dispensary for the whole town.

Selling cannabis like ice cream

I know this is a crazy idea, but hear me out.

Food trucks are all the rage now, right? I personally don’t enjoy going to food trucks, they are too pricey, but the point is that people love them.

A bar has some food trucks set up outside, and all of a sudden it’s a block party, and everyone makes money. I think food is just the beginning, and this is just the evolution of the ice cream trucks we had when we were kids. My idea takes it to the next level, by having a mobile cannabis dispensary that can be driven to special events. It turns out the laws haven’t changed that much, and selling cannabis from a truck will get me thrown in jail. It doesn’t matter anyway, because I have a way around it! People easily wait 30 minutes to get food from a truck, so they will wait that long for cannabis, too. I will set up the cannabis truck with samples, no quantities for sale at all. This will just be a sample booth, so to speak, where people can smell and examine the cannabis and decide what they want to order. Then I phone the order into the cannabis dispensary nearby, and they will send a delivery driver out with the order. The customer will have their cannabis within 30 minutes, and we don’t have to store any product on the truck itself! It is only a matter of time before I can realize my dream and make a fully functional, fully stocked cannabis truck, but for now this will do.
