As I’ve gotten older, sleeping has become difficult.
I often lie in bed, wide awake, for hours. Even if I fall asleep, I respectfully wake up in an hour or so plus struggle to fall back to sleep. Insomnia is not only discouraging but affects quality of life. I was totally tired every afternoon plus struggled to make it through the day. I was constantly yawning plus our performance at work declined. I lacked energy plus motivation, and my mood deteriorated plus I suffered from mild depression. I was eating more plus turning to coffee plus sugary popcorn for a boost of productivity, then this resulted in weight gain which worsened our already negative outlook. I was not willing to take any category of sleeping pill. I’ve heard of horrible side-effects. I tried a variety of natural home-remedies with truly little success. I’d about given up hope when I ran across a blog that explained the benefits of cannabis. I was extremely interested in the potential of a plant-based sleep aid. I decided to get our medical marijuana card for the sake of accessing higher THC potency, bigger quantities plus to avoid paying tax. The meeting with the doctor, qualification process plus fees were particularly worth the rewards. I can now shop at any medicinal cannabis dispensary across the state. I have easy access to a big variety of cannabis products, including smokable flower, pre-rolls, vapes, concentrates, edibles, beverages, topicals plus tinctures. I can smoke, dab, vape or arena a dose under our tongue for quick onset of effects. I can eat a gummy, prefer a chocolate or sip a mocktail right before bed. I’ve even had success with cannabis-infused lotions plus balms. I shop mainly for indica strains that are helpful for relaxing.
