A couple years ago, I moved across the country for the sake of a job opportunity. Although I knew absolutely no one in my new location, I was excited for the change of scenery. I left behind long winters with temperatures down to negative twenty-five, brutal wind chill and significant snow accumulation and traveled to Southern California. I now live in Winnetka, where the weather is warm and sunny all year round. During the middle of winter, the temperature never drops below freezing and typically warms up into the sixties during the day. For the majority of the year, the temperature climbs into the high eighties and even the nineties. I love my new area. The scenery is gorgeous and I get all of the benefits of a small town while living in close proximity to all of the amenities of Los Angeles. I am delighted that I am now a resident of a state with legalized recreational marijuana. There is a local dispensary where I only need to show valid government-issued identification to shop. They offer an impressive selection of the most well-known brands and innovative strains. Along with indicas, sativas and hybrids, they include a variety of CBD products. I can purchase smokable flower, pre-rolled joints or blunts, edibles, tinctures, vapes, topicals, beverages and lots of concentrates. I like to check out the different weekly deals to save a little money and try out something new. I’ve found that cannabis is a great way to get a better night’s sleep, treat tired muscles and combat headaches. I’ve added cannabis-infused topicals into my skincare regimen and seen lots of benefits.
