I was shocked to see the extreme turn around in public opinion on cannabis after legalization passed in my home state.
At first there was a huge pushback by right wing groups and others who wished to keep the medicine in an illegal black market.
But everyday more people are trying it for the first time and experiencing the life changing effects firsthand for themselves. It is truly defying and transcending political ideology of any kind, just ask the people who stave off their seizures or the cancer patients who are suddenly capable of eating again. I started smoking marijuana in college as a means of coping with the stress and the anxiety and depression that came with it. When I bought a vaporizer, I started to enjoy the plant more than ever. I learned later that I was unlocking additional cannabinoids that get destroyed when you combust the flower by smoking it. To this day my favorite means of consuming cannabis is by vaporizing the flower buds. The only problem that I’m facing is constant low stock at my closest cannabis dispensaries. Apparently I’m not the only person who prefers buying cannabis flower buds to vaporize. I have to be diligent and check the online menu whenever the dispensary gets new deliveries. If I can make an online order ahead of going to the dispensary to buy my marijuana, I can usually get flower buds before they get sold out once again. There are even days of the week where you can get flower at a reduced price if you buy it in bulk. It’s amazing to get an ounce with four different strains inside for just over $200.
