When I was in high school you couldn’t get cannabis in any legal sort of way.
You needed to find a dealer and pay an exorbitant amount of money for sketchy weed.
I look back at that time and cringe. There were no rules and regulations for growing them. When you take an illegal product, you get what you get. It is amazing I didn’t mess up my body smoking something I shouldn’t have. When recreational weed became legal in my state, I was thrilled to get access to the product. I liked that I didn’t need to invite a sketchy dude to my house and buy whatever he happened to have. I realized after going into the cannabis dispensary for the first time that I knew nothing about weed. The first question my budtender wanted answered was sativa or indica. What the heck was that? I realized you can decide the type of high you want. I never knew that. I thought I was just smoking stuff that I happen to react differently too. Sativas are for day time use. They pump you up, make you feel energized and happy. An indica is the night time use one that calms you down, makes you feel creative and relaxed. I realized that I only wanted to smoke indicas but was actually smoking sativas in high school. The world of indicas is vast and has a lot of cool names too. I realized I didn’t need to even smoke flower form if I wanted to. I am so glad everything is legal now.
