Starting CBD and MMJ
Starting CBD and MMJ
So many people have asked me questions about CBD, Hemp, Medical Marijuana – what works, what doesn’t, what I recommend… so many questions. And the other day, it dawned on me that I have never talked about my life, my health issues, and what led me to the CalmLife Journey. So, today, I want to share it with all of you.
For me, falling asleep was never an issue. However, as I got older, I started waking up frequently during the middle of the night, and, unbeknownst to me, I was grinding my teeth during the night… which resulted in morning headaches. Severe, debilitating headaches that would take me out of my game for a few hours in the morning (something I just could not afford).
I had heard that marijuana/hemp could help, but honestly, I didn’t think it was right for me. That said, and given that it was available in my home state, I thought I would check it out. I mean, I thought, why not, what did I have to lose? Actually, I lost a lot!
Before I get into what I lost by starting CBD and MMJ, let me take you through the process of how easy the whole thing was. First, I got my card, and then, I picked up some medical marijuana at a local Dispensary. I started consuming (vaping) right before bed, and found out that it relaxed me even more; remember, falling asleep quickly was never a problem – it was staying asleep that was one of my issues. But the very first night I tried MMJ, I experienced calmness, plus a little of that euphoric feeling, that put me to sleep fast, and I was able to sleep longer without interruption. The very first night. I was amazed when I woke up the next day; not only did I feel refreshed and rested like never before, I had NO headache! It had been years since I had felt so energetic and revived in the morning. Now, I can honestly say that I usually make it through the night, with NO headaches in the morning!
I had finally lost that exhausted, migraine-filled morning feel. Was it all because of the MMJ? Well, I’m not doing anything else differently, so I’m going to say, “Yes.”
That said, I need to add that MMJ works differently for everyone; so finding the right THC/CBD ratio/strain and amount of dose is important. But I am hopeful, my story will motivate you to find out what works for you, so you can gain the same benefits I have.
Another thing I want to mention in my story was how CBD affected me. Again, it’s different for everyone. But I find that when I take CBD, it gives me a nice mellow feeling (without getting me high) and I find that incidences of me being sore (from sleeping the wrong way, chilling in a bad position, or just plain ole getting old) is little to none!
In fact, one day recently, I threw out my back, and it was so painful, that I had to support myself when going from sitting to standing up. A few years ago, I had done the same thing; it took me about 6 months to recover, so I was really scared this would take me out of commission the same way. I could not afford to deal with that pain again for 6 months.
So, knowing what I know about CBD and pain relief, this time I increased the mgs of my CBD, and a few days later I was feeling much better. I was shocked, given the experience last time, and how much better I felt this time, with the CBD.
So, was it definitely the CBD that helped? I don’t know. That said, when my family and friends ask me for help with any time of pain, I always recommend CBD, and I know for sure, I will always continue to use it based on what I have seen and felt in my own life.
