It's cannabis and it has many medical applications.

Try Petra Mints (micro-dose).

Smoking it? Most of us did that in our younger days. You were kind of pressured into trying it at parties.

It made me silly and then ravenously hungry. That's about it. It was a party thing back when we were young. I don't intend to try it again. Oh, almost forgot--one time I smoked it and later on I went for a drive and the effect came back. I didn't know where I was and had to pull over until it wore off. So, it can be fun for a few times at a party. That's about it. It's legal here too--just what we wanted back in 1970. Now I couldn't care less.

Weed never agreed with me, makes me tired, hungry, paranoid, and stupid. Dry, red eyes and cotton mouth add to the annoyance. Nice buzz for many, but not for me.

Modern strains don't really have those side effects anymore.

I don't mind a low dose as an edible, that affects me better.

I tried medical marijuana for anxiety -made it worse. I vaped a combination of CBD and THC. It was the THC that affected me.
Never again!

Give some edibles a try. My husband loves the cookies and gets a great night's sleep when he has one. It is much better for you than taking a sleeping pill. My dad is getting relief from leg and back problems with a CBD/THC cream. Start with a small dose and see how you react. I like to have a glass of wine and a gummy on a Friday night when we are staying in!

Default Helps me relax enough to sleep

I have trouble sleeping and I have begun using a 5 mg gummy regularly when I have trouble falling to sleep. I also think it helps my restless leg syndrome. I don't care much for smoking anything but will on occasion. You might want to investigate the medicinal uses of cannabis.

I have a friend that uses it for his migraines and it has really helped him. My SIL has serious migraines, but won't even try marijuana to see if it helps since she says "I have never used drugs." But SIL will take any prescription medication any doctor gives her. Just one of my pet peeves!
