There are websites that specialize in selling marijuana growing equipment

I just finished planting a row of tomato and bean plants in my backyard garden.

After a successful crop last year, I decided to grow my favorite vegetables again.

I even had fresh compost that I had been gathering in the months leading up to the present. If this year’s crop is equally successful, I might expand my garden in the future. For now, I have three rows of tomato plants and one row of various bean plants. Even before I stopped going into public a lot less in March of this year, I still preferred to buy my seeds, soil, and other growing supplies over the internet. Aside from having a vastly larger selection, the prices are competitive. If I need a specific type of nutrient, I don’t have to overspend by going to a local landscaping store for what would otherwise be labeled as a specialty product. I can’t just expect to walk into Home Depot or Ace on any random day and hope to find what I need. This is in part why I prefer online shopping in general, as it gives me the freedom to get multiple quotes from multiple companies without ever moving an inch. Lately I’ve been seeing some of the landscaping and garden supply stores start to stock items to grow and harvest marijuana plants. I’m seeing special hydroponic systems and high performance lights that can all be controlled remotely from afar. There are a few websites that specialize in cannabis cultivation equipment and supplies entirely. The market is growing at an nearly unstoppable rate as new states approve decriminalization, medical laws, or full blown marijuana legalization each and every year. It doesn’t surprise me to see companies thriving in that one single market only.

Medical marijuana regulations demand a medical grow room

I was ecstatic when I learned that our state had finally approved medical marijuana after years of struggling to get the amendment put on the ballot.

If you had asked me 10 years ago if I thought my state would be this far along at this stage with the fight to legalize marijuana, I would have laughed.

The political opposition at the time was nearly insurmountable, with money funneling in from out of state billionaires whose pockets are lined with profits from pharmaceutical companies. Although it will be a few years before we get full legalization in my state, we at least have a medical marijuana program even if the costs are too high for some users. It’s not cheap between the doctor you have to pay for a recommendation and the annual fees paid to the State Department of Health to keep your physical card active and updated. The companies who wish to cultivate marijuana in this state have their own hurdles to overcome to meet the demands of the regulations put on the medical marijuana program. Their grow rooms have to meet stringent standards to prevent contamination in the plants as they’re grown, harvested, and packaged. If proper climate control is not implemented at every stage of the process, you could end up with batches of marijuana with mold and mildew growing at a microscopic level. They also have to utilize equipment that won’t leach heavy metals and chemicals into the fragile plants and their growth mediums. If these cannabis companies don’t meet the stringent guidelines for growing medical weed, they could see their entire cultivation operations closed for good. And since everything has to be lab tested before it hits the market, they won’t be able to hide it either.

Which is Better When it Comes to Medical Marijauna

When the doctor told myself and others that there are now alternatives to drugs to help with my depression, I wasn’t sure what he was saying.

He said that I could try marijuana with THC or just try the CBD as a first-timer.

CBD was legal in nearly every state in the United States. CBD is a derivative of marijuana but CBD doesn’t hold any hallucinogenic properties. It has none of the ingredients that makes you loopy in the head. The CBD did have all of the ingredients that make it good for medicinal purposes. I asked him what would happen if I were to get the THC instead of the CBD? He said I would experience a high of some sort, depending on the marijuana strain that I picked out. The greatest difference was that marijuana was not yet legalized, even if it is medical marijuana only. CBD was legalized in nearly every state & it is found in just about every pharmacy or drugstore where you regularly get your over the counter items such as diphenhydramine. He told myself and others to go to a pharmacy & ask what would be best for my medical concerns and complaints. He said that if I were to purchase the CBD from just any old store, there was no telling what was in the CBD. There could be a lot of compounds that are just mixed in as inactive ingredients that do not come from CBD. I was ready to go since I was loaded with information the doctor gave myself and others & ready to go seek the advice of the pharmacist & figure out what to purchase. I was hoping the CBD would be one more weapon in my medical healthcare arsenal & glad to think it would not make myself and others loopy in the head.

Insert with the Treats Had Vital information

My best neighbor brought some homemade goodies to the house for me, he said he had made the little treats but that I should follow the directions she also provided, when I ate them.

She warned myself and others that there was more than just sugar to sweeten them up. I laughed but didn’t really get it, and then he left. She reminded myself and others to study the directions before scarfing any of them down. I enjoyed butterscotch & I picked up a single he said was butterscotch flavored. I thought he needed to put more flavoring into it the next time, & not to overcook the sugar. I should have listened & asked more questions about what was in those delicious little treats. They were laced with strange types of marijuana oils. I didn’t look at the insert that told what kind of marijuana was included. I didn’t expect there to be marijuana in the candy. Then I noticed he had written some of them were fantastic for sleep. The butterscotch was supposed to help anxiety. After eating an entire lollipop, I decided to look at the insert he had provided. I looked up the strange ‘marijuanas’ he had made the lollipops with. I wasn’t really happy about spending the rest of the morning on the sofa, wondering when the painting of the lilies in a field was going to stop moving around the walls. I didn’t think if I wanted to sleep or get up & chase the flowers that were falling in through the ceiling. When I located my long lost phone, I called him & told him he should have warned myself and others about the marijuana in the treats.

Dude at Marijuana Dispensary Very Helpful

I was looking on my favorite search engine, trying to figure out what kind of marijuana I should purchase now that it was legalized.

I never had the nerve to try it before, but now, it was something I wanted to get for myself.

I thought I would bring it to the cabin from the marijuana dispensary, & stand in the house. I wanted to avoid making a fool of myself in front of other people. When I said something to one of my friends, he said he would join me. The next thing I knew, my friend and I were hosting a marijuana party in my apartment. The two of us called a few others to join the party. The two of us were looking at the difference between sativa, indica, & hybrid. To be honest, I was happy just trying to find what all of us wanted. The two of us walked into the dispensary & asked the guy at the desk. His first question was what our objective is. My friend said he just wanted to have fun, which had us all guffawing. He told us that a sativa is the strand to get for a party because it didn’t make you exhausted. If you weren’t accustomed to partaking in marijuana, he said all of us may want to try gummies or edibles because you could just stop eating if necessary. He told us it would not hurt to eat half a brownie, or half a gummy in the beginning. He got us some brownies, marijuana space cake & several cookies to try, cautioning us to only try half of a single of them & wait an third before eating a whole one. The two of us were happy to go back to the home & begin the party.



Cannabis Dispensary is Pleasant Looking Building

I had no idea what it would be like to go into the marijuana dispensary, but it was not what I saw.

I think a section of myself and others thought it would probably be a whole in the wall building.

I did not think it would be a quiet storefront with pleasant music playing. I expected the strong acrid smell of marijuana being used. I didn’t expect it to smell disinfect & fresh. There was the tiniest bit of an odor from marijuana, but nothing overwhelming. I planned on just looking around to see what was in stock. I didn’t expect to see candy & fresh baked goods. I was a bit pleased to see honey sticks & gummy bears. I found some of the prettiest glass pieces & some differently-themed items. There were dragons that could be used for incense & some that seemed to be decorative only. The guy behind the counter came over & asked myself and others if he could help myself and others find the perfect item. I didn’t think what to answer. I inquired about the brownies & the cupcakes. He told myself and others he would gladly give myself and others a few samples of various items & told myself and others to go ahead & try a bit of it. I was surprised that he said that. Helmet us know it was made with marijuana oil. He told me to take a small bite & I thought he was kidding. It tasted exactly the same as a regular gummy bear from the candy aisle at CVS. He cautioned myself and others however, not to eat anymore until I was safely on my sofa. Since I had never tried marijuana, I decided to listen to him and his experience talking. By the time I got home, I was feeling a bit odd, but pleasant. I now visit the marijuana dispensary more often.

Negative Attitude about Cannabis Still Pervasive

I thought that when marijuana became legal, that people would be cheerful.

It seems that although the laws have changed, the personality of some of these people haven’t.

I was surprised to see my aunt being a single of the most obvious idiots. I remember my Grandma using his as an example of how people can be trusted. She used to tell myself and others that my aunt was always discovered using drugs. His drug of choice was marijuana. Grandma said how even he himself was a single of those hippies hanging out in the square & openly smoking pot & blowing the second hand smoke in the face of police officers. She thought it was all a section of growing up, & trying to have some independence. Back then, a little pot or drinking was kind of overlooked. When my aunt became an actual adult, it wasn’t tolerated love it was in the sixties. Within a decade, smoking pot was frowned on & so several people had permanent arrest records for smoking or selling marijuana. She always cautioned myself and others to stay away from it. I was surprised by how unphased my Grandma was when they finally legalized marijuana. She asked me if I would run out to the dispensary & option his up some of those gummies or other delicious edibles. She said they would help his old arthritic joints. My aunt was horrified. Grandma laughed & I bit my tongue, knowing the past antics of my uncle, then it’s great to tell the story of smoking out with my Grandma. Marijuana is not something I would use as a crutch, any more than I would use vodka, but it sure does make for some interesting laughter with Grandma..

Newbies to the Cannabis World

I finally decided to get a prescription for the legal use of marijuana.

I looked up where the local cannabis dispensary was & it’s too bad it’s on the other side of town.

They had a client service number on their website so I reached out. I told them my name, address, & all of the information on the prescription. Then I simply took a picture of the prescription & text it to them. Ten thirds later, they returned my call. They were going to SMS a long list of what strange types of marijuana that might help me. They told myself and others to option & choose what I wanted. One service they have is to send myself and others out samples to try before I put out a large sum of currency. I asked him how I was going to option up the marijuana samples. He told myself and others that the samples would be brought to my house & after getting them, I could ask the delivery person any questions. The marijuana dispensary sent a young man to my house. This professionally dressed guy even showed his ID & credentials before giving me the bag full of samples. She told myself and others how to use the gummies & other items that were in the bag. He offered to stay with me while I tried it. When I asked if he didn’t need to get back to the dispensary, I found out that this is what he does. She made myself and others feel so much more comfortable as newbies to the cannabis world.

CBD Available in Multiple Shops

It seems that whenever there are official meetings, the discussion ultimately turns to the legalization of marijuana.

It has become legal to sell & use CBD without any kind of prescriptions & it is available in pharmacies & grocery stores.

Lately, I have been seeing ‘smoke’ shops appearing and being built on nearly every corner. It entirely surprised me that the world has become so bold with their selling of the CBD. I knew it was a section of marijuana, & I was really thinking that weed would also be withheld from sale until the state passed a law on marijuana legalization. I decided to become knowledgeable about what the difference was between CBD & THC, the section of the marijuana plant that makes people ‘high’. CBD & THC are the two main derivatives of marijuana. The CBD is the substance that can help in healing & have positive medicinal effects. The THC can also have medicinal effects, but it will also give what some people call a buzz. I headed right on into the smoke shop & saw what all they gave. There was a young hippy guy there who was more than cheerful to help myself and others out with his products. At first he recommended some cigars, despite the fact that I shyly told him I wanted some CBD for migraines. I was unaware of strange products he had in that store. He moved on to show me the gummies he had that had CBD & he said it would be excellent for someone who suffered from my medical issues. He instructed myself and others on how to use the CBD & recommended to start small. Although the CBD would not cause myself and others to feel that characteristic marijuana high, he said it often made people sick to their stomach if they were not cautious enough.

Paperwork is the First Step in Marijuana Purchase

After receiving the paperwork from the state that allowed myself and others to legally purchase medical marijuana, I was a bit wary.

I couldn’t wait to be able to legally purchase marijuana, but now I was a bit wary.

For years, I had been sneaking around & finding people who would sell it to me. Because I am a Vietnam Vet, I have a lot of anxiety. There were several times when I swore I would have lost my mind if I hadn’t had the marijuana to calm myself and others down. Marijuana provides a slow mellow that helped myself and others to relax & still function officially. Now, I was all ready to find the nearest cannabis dispensary & purchase my marijuana. I went into the shop to browse. There was a young man behind the counter who asked to see my paperwork even before he would converse with me. She was pleasant, even though he got down to business. Apparently, he was not willing to get herself or the dispensary into trouble if I didn’t give him my information. The worker made copies of the paperwork, and then proceeded to get more paperwork that I had to fill out for the dispensary. When we completed the necessary paperwork, he talked about the strange strains of marijuana that are available for relaxation. She asked myself and others if I had already been a user. If I hadn’t he might recommend ACDC, it had a low content of THC with a higher content of CBD. I had to admit I had been a user for years.
