The dispensary prices were outrageous, but I found some good deals

After a week of using recreational marijuana everyday, I didn’t want to leave the city

I went to the San Francisco Bay Area to spend some time with friends. I stayed in my friends has apartment during the 5-day stay. I knew the guys from college and I had not seen them in a couple of years. I had some vacation time to take at work and I mentioned that on social media. My friends immediately offered to put me up in San Francisco if I wanted to come for a visit. They even picked me up at the airport. As soon as we left the San Francisco Airport, the guys asked if I wanted to go to a dispensary. I thought a lot about recreational marijuana while I was on the airplane. I did not know if I was going to smoke marijuana with my friends or not. I had not used recreational marijuana since college and that was three years ago. Since I had a week and no responsibilities, I decided to join my friends in the fun. We went to a San Francisco marijuana dispensary that had a first-time patient special. The prices were totally outrageous, but I found some pretty good deals after looking around. I got an eighth of marijuana for $15 and a disposable vape pen that was discreet and easy-to-use when my friends and I went to the beach or anywhere in public. After a week of using recreational marijuana everyday, I didn’t want to leave the city. I was happier and mentally healthier than I had been in years. I am strongly considering making a move this fall.

After the rain started, I decided to change to delivery

There really isn’t much rain in the city of San Francisco.

When it does rain, the rain doesn’t last very long.

The weather is one of the reasons why I decided to move to San Francisco. I lived in Northern California for a long time. I loved being near the mountains, but it was tiring to continuously deal with snow, ice, and rain during the fall and winter months. When I was offered a job working in San Francisco, I jumped on the chance to move to a new place. I had to find an apartment with a roommate, because it is extremely expensive to live in the city. Fortunately, I had plenty of money and a great personality. I found an apartment a few blocks away from a medical & recreational marijuana dispensary. The marijuana dispensary was easily within walking distance of the apartment and that made it very easy for me to get supplies anytime I needed. No dispensary also offers delivery services. I rarely use the delivery service, because I don’t order that much marijuana and you need to spend $75 in order to qualify for free delivery. Last Friday I placed a pick up order at the San Francisco marijuana dispensary location. It started raining just as I was getting dressed to leave the apartment. It was raining much harder than the forecast predicted. I didn’t want to walk three blocks in the rain, so I contacted the San Francisco marijuana dispensary and asked the budtender to change my order from pickup to delivery. She was happy to assign the order to a driver coming to the neighborhood.

I plan on going hiking in Phoenix when the weather is cool outside

The last couple of years have been crazy, some people were able to pull through the pandemic with little to no issues.

But others had a hard time and rightfully so, the mandates became too much for some people to handle.

Personally, I did fine during that time. I even developed some new habits like hiking because it was something that I could do during the lockdowns. So, with my newfound hobby I am always looking for new adventures and I found something that I plan on doing. I would like to go to Phoenix and hike a few of their best spots. While there are a bunch of cool locations, I am looking forward to seeing the Hole-in-the-Rock located in Papago Park. I can’t wait to stand inside the cavern and look out at the city from there. I am planning on going in December when it’s cooler outside. Though Phoenix doesn’t get brutal Winters, they do get blistering heat in the Summer, and I would prefer not to hike when it’s that hot outside. There would be nowhere to cool down because there would be no indoor air conditioner for miles. The car air conditioner doesn’t do much when you’re out in the middle of the desert. A few years ago, I spent some time in Phoenix, and I spent most of the time on indoor activities. I wanted to be in air conditioned spaces because I wasn’t used to the weather. But Phoenix will be much cooler in January, so I wouldn’t have to worry about having air conditioning when I am on my hikes.

I am glad that the Phoenix resort had great air conditioning

Have you ever been on a hot air balloon ride? If not, it is one of the most exhilarating rides that you would have in your life, and I highly recommend it.

Last year, I was in Phoenix Arizona for my anniversary, and this was something that was recommended to me and my husband by our good friends who had traveled to Phoenix the year before.

Phoenix is such an amazing city. The different terrain adds to its beauty. We stayed in a gorgeous resort that had views of the surrounding mountain range. The resort was the epitome of luxury, and it had some wonderful amenities. Pools, spas, lounges, fitness center, yoga, multiple dining options, concierge service, you name it, the hotel had it on the premises. One thing that I loved the most, was that they had a great air conditioning system. This is something that is needed while in the middle of the desert. When I was not sitting by the pool or luxuriating in one of their spas, I was inside the room enjoying the cool breeze from the air conditioner. I kept the temperature on the thermostat at 70 degrees for the entire week that we were there. Every time we walked back into the room, that blast of cool air felt like heaven. Where we live it is hot as well, but we get more humidity. Phoenix has dry heat, and it takes a bit to get used to it. I would visit Phoenix again and stay at the same resort. The amenities were great, and the air conditioning was perfect.

Learning more about cannabis

When recreational cannabis was legalized in Michigan, I couldn’t wait to visit the dispensary in Whitehall.

I stepped inside and realized that I had no idea what to buy. I was totally overwhelmed and clueless. I walked around and looked at the huge selection of products and consumption methods for almost half an hour. I left without making a purchase. I then decided to educate myself. I went online and researched cannabis. I learned that the endocannabinoid system (ECS) in the body is made up of CB1 and CB2 receptors that send signals to the brain. They tell the body to produce endocannabinoids to achieve homeostasis. Sometimes there is a deficiency of endocannabinoids, resulting in physical or mental problems. The cannabis plant is made up of cannabinoids that mimic these natural endocannabinoids and link to CB1 and CB2 receptors, producing all different types of effects. Because the ECS plays an important role in appetite, mood, memory, pain, sleep, the reproductive system and so much more, cannabis is a very helpful medicinal treatment. The main cannabinoid is THC, which produces the high sensation. The second most abundant cannabinoid is CBD, which can offset some of the negative side-effects of THC, doesn’t get you high and offers curative properties. Researchers have found that CBD and THC work more effectively when partnered together. There are cannabis strains on the market that are high THC and low CBD, low THC and high CBD or a balance of both. Along with considering cannabinoid content, it’s a good idea to pay attention to terpenes. Terpenes are responsible for the pungent aroma and flavor of cannabis and are believed to contribute to the overall effects. Once I became a little more knowledgeable, I felt more confident shopping at the Whitehall dispensary. I started with a high CBD and low THC tincture and was very happy with it.

I don't like rolling joints, I like pre-rolls

While there are all different cannabis consumption methods, I prefer old-fashioned flower.

I like the process and relaxation of smoking a joint for blunt. I feel that the dried buds are the best of the plant, and there is something soothing about inhaling the fragrant smoke. I smoke flower to relax at the end of a tough workday. I light up a joint to share with friends, alleviate stress, sleep better at night and to tap into a better mood. Although I am a long-time cannabis enthusiast, I am not overly skilled at rolling joints. I either roll the paper too tight or too loose. I add too much weed or not enough. My joints don’t always burn properly. They sometimes create an ungodly long ash or keep going out. I was delighted to discover an extensive selection of pre-rolls at the local dispensary in Whitehall. With marijuana now legal in Michigan, I can shop for pre-rolls whenever I have some extra time. I can browse in-store or check out options on their website. I can even choose curbside pickup or have my pre-rolls delivered. Whenever possible, I like to visit the dispensary and chat with the budtenders. I appreciate their insight and recommendations. They have introduced me to new strains and some great experiences. There are pre-rolled joints, blunts and even something called a cannagar. I can buy infused options for extra potency and pick from indicas, hybrids and sativas. The pre-rolls are wonderfully affordable. The ability to purchase a single pre-roll lets me try out new options without spending a lot. For my favorites, I can save some money on packs. The pre-rolls are always perfect and consistent. I know the percentage of THC and CBD and can count on a very clean and even burn.

Cannabis and pain relief

Vaping provides a rapid onset of effects.

I am a long-time marijuana user and advocate. I was relieved and delighted when recreational cannabis was finally legalized in Oregon. The passing of the law allowed me to finally visit the dispensary in Eugene. I have become a regular there. I’ve gotten to know the budtenders quite well. By signing up for the dispensary’s loyalty program, I receive discounts, earn points and get alerts for new products and daily deals. While I really enjoy spending some time at the dispensary and browsing the variety of strains, I also appreciate their delivery service. When I broke my leg on a skiing trip, I was unable to drive for nearly six weeks. Since I severely injured my leg, the pain was excruciating. Instead of looking to cannabis to relax on the weekends or enjoy with friends, I was suddenly very interested in its curative properties. I called the dispensary, spoke with one of the budtenders and explained my needs. He recommended several hybris with a good balance of THC and CBD content. I have always favored old-school smoking of a joint or blunt, but decided to try vaping concentrate for the sake of greater cannabinoid content. Contrates are the result of a distilling process that gets rid of the unwanted plant matter and leaves behind the cannabinoids and terpenes. Vaping provides a rapid onset of effects. Plus I didn’t need to mess around with rolling and all the extra gear. A disposable vape pen is as simple as pressing a button. All I needed to do was inhale and I enjoyed nearly immediate pain relief.

Learning about cannabis

When recreational marijuana was first legalized in Colorado, I was eager to visit the dispensary.

I live in Eugene, and a gorgeous facility opened up just down the street from my apartment.

However, I didn’t want to simply wander around with no idea of what I should buy. Since cannabis has a significant impact on the mind and body, I decided to do some research before purchasing and consuming. As I read up on the subject, I realized that I had a lot to learn. I now know that the cannabis plant contains over a hundred different chemical compounds called cannabinoids. These cannabinoids interact with CB1 and CB2 receptors that make up the body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS). The ECS is responsible for all sorts of essential functions, including mood, sleep, memory, pain and appetite. It is the job of the ECS to maintain homeostasis. It is basically a signaling system that tells the brain and body when to create endocannabinoids to fix problems. However, there are times when the ECS fails to react properly. Cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, can assist the ECS and promote healing and alleviate symptoms. Cannabis has shown promise in treating chronic pain, inflammation, seizures, migraines, insomnia, arthritis, nausea, anxiety, depression, addiction and so much more. We are discovering that cannabis topicals, applied directly to the skin, are valuable in treating acne, psoriasis, eczema, sunburn, bruises, wounds and more. Educating myself only increased my belief in the healing power of cannabis. I truly appreciate the chance to shop at the local dispensary and improve my health and wellness.

I’m going to visit the New Mexico 420 Fest this year

As I enjoy my new life in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I look back to my years in Michigan before cannabis was legal. There was a medical marijuana law in 2008, but before then I had a buddy who was growing it indoors about 30 miles north of Ann Arbor. Every year Ann Arbor would have its infamous Hash Bash that dates back to the 1970s. People gather in The Diag in downtown Ann Arbor and smoke weed in full public display. The city famously implemented a $5 marijuana fine in 1972 when it decriminalized the plant. Now that fine is $25, but you can finally purchase marijuana recreationally. That makes a celebration like Hash Bash even more exciting. You can walk from a dispensary downtown and get to the celebration within minutes. After moving to Albuquerque, I forgot about Hash Bash. New Mexico has had legal medical marijuana since 2007, but now we have recreational cannabis as well. My favorite dispensary in Los Volcanes has a sale every week on different products. He rotates through his inventory, something popular among all of the cannabis stores in Bernalillo County. You’d think that I’d know if my own city had a marijuana celebration every year, but I was genuinely ignorant of the New Mexico 420 Fest. It’s along Central Ave between 3rd St and 7th St on April 20th every single year, and this year is poised to be a blast. There will be food vendors of all kinds lined up and down Central Ave, giving all stoners a bountiful selection of delicious munchies to satisfy their appetites.

We decided to get high and see a concert at the El Rey Theater

I started going to concerts in middle school when my step dad took me to see a Blue Oyster Cult show.

It was at an outdoor music festival in the Isleta Amphitheater that lasted for a whole weekend with different acts each day.

The temperatures that day were in the high 90s, but there was a gentle breeze rolling in from the desert. I feel bad that we were standing for the duration of the show as everyone had exited their seats during one of the opening acts that night. I’m only 30 and already have chronic back pain, and I can only imagine how hard it was on my step father to stay with me for that whole concert. But despite the pain in his body, he pushed through it and stayed with me for the whole time. Now that I’m much older and have the time, I’m starting to attend concerts whenever I have the time and the disposable income. As we get closer and closer to the end of the COVID pandemic, musicians are finally able to play concerts again. However, this and the historic inflation levels have made it really hard to afford concert tickets for any big acts. Even some of my favorite indie bands are asking for $75 a ticket nowadays. I wanted to stop at the cannabis dispensary on the way to a concert at the El Rey Theater so I could get high and enjoy the music like I did back when I was in college at the University of New Mexico. This particular cannabis store was on the corner of Central Ave and Arno St and had a significant selection of cannabis edibles.
