I never wanted or thought about smoking pot before moving to California. I had always thought it was a bad drug that made you lose your mind. Being from a small Midwestern town, I only heard bad things about it.
When I came to visit in 2009 I was first introduced. It was a very green edible, which by the way I only had a tiny piece of. It was a rice crispy treat and I thought I was going to die, LOL!
I was so numb, and it felt like I wasn't in control of my body or mind, or so I thought.
I remember just lying in bed, tears coming down my face and trying to figure things out. I was hella freaking out, I didn’t know what to do!
The good news is I was with someone I trusted and was safe with. They told me to “relax and enjoy the ride.” Yeah right!!!
When I woke up, I was eating everything in sight.
I was so hungry and had no idea why.
I vowed never to try cannabis ever again…
After I moved to California, my world changed. It seemed like weed was everywhere!
Even though I was interested, I stayed firm and never smoked or ate anything Mary jane related...and trust me I was around it all the time.
About two years later (peer pressure is a MotherF*#@^%, LOL) my second experience was a little better… it came with hallucinations.
I thought there was a load of cookies on my lap, so I kept scooping them out and giving them away. I LOVE cookies, don’t you?
But nothing was there, and I felt amazing during and after!!
I still didn’t want to get “addicted” so I smoked it only a few times…
Plus, I didn't want anyone to know I smoked, so I kept it a secret for a long time.
Fast forward to 2018...
I’ve learned so much more about the strains and how they affect me.
Now, I love it so much…
And always look forward to trying new products, especially since its legal!! (Sort of…)
Growing up I have had my own beliefs about cannabis but where did they come from? After learning and experiencing cannabis for myself I feel completely different.
Cannabis is great and has helped me in so many ways. Maybe I’ll tell you how in upcoming posts
Until next time….
