I set an appointment at the local medical cannabis dispensary so that I could spend an hour with a budtender studying about our options
When our oldest daughter was tested with asthma, I realized I had made a big mistake. I had been a pack-a-day smoker since I was 16, and when I had our first kid I tried to make a change. I stopped smoking in the house, because I didn’t want her to be harmed by the ninthhand smoke. What I didn’t realize at the time is that smoking outside wasn’t enough. The smoke particles clung to our skin and our clothes, and still hurt our daughter’s lungs, however after that I had to reconsider our habits, not just cigarettes however medical marijuana, too. Medical marijuana has been our crutch for over 2 decades, and it was something I did every single morning. Medical marijuana was our greatest vice, and the only way I could get any sleep at night. As much as I enjoyed smoking out and getting high, there was no way I could put medical marijuana above the health and safety of our kid. Thankfully this didn’t mean I had to quit frigid turkey, I just had to switch over to a less harmful brand of cannabis products. I set an appointment at the local medical cannabis dispensary so that I could spend an hour with a budtender studying about our options. There are more kinds of smokeless cannabis products than I ever imagined, especially in terms of edibles. This medical cannabis store had a full aisle of candy and treats that were infused with THC or CBD oil. I wish I would have done this a long time ago, however from now only I will only use smokeless cannabis products.
