Can't wait to start.

But I don't feel like I can share this with anyone i know (including my sister because she is obnoxious about it) so you guys will be hearing it.

Ya my state is so behind that they JUST NOW legalized medical, yet recreational is still illegal.


Oh well, no law stops me from doing what I want anyways. The law can shove it lulz

I was shocked at how easy it was to get it for medical. Get the card.

I am going tomorrow wish me luck. Nothing in my life have I done and been such a "virgin" I don't know anything about this and I have to go and admit it to people and I sure hope I don't make a fool out of myself.

I just worry that money will be an issue. I don't have insurance and I can't see a doctor unless there is a doctor that would approve me for one with a sliding scale nearby since transportation is such a huge barrier for me right now.

Could be. It was $200 for my visit. Plus the location was about an hour away.

So I went.

Negatives.
- though the inside was super ultra modern, the outside looked like someone dilapidated house. I don't know why they feel the need to hide these shops like porn shops.
- all the cars in the driveway were junkers.
- most of the people going in were your stereotypical pot heads and of course, all guys.
- I felt a bit like a criminal as you had to stand outside and put up your id and card to get buzzed in.
- It reeked.
- I need a degree in pot to understand anything that is going on.

Positives.
-This particular dispensary is opening up near my home soon. I can literally walk there from my home.
- the employees seemed to help me.
- It seemed pretty cheap.
- It wasn't crowded.

In the end I got a creme which isn't supposed to make me high and I got edibles in a chocolate bar which will but it is a very low dose.

Not that I admit to doing stuff like that.

So I am irked. I did take less of the dose than they told me to.. 2.5 mg. rather than 5 mg... but nothing happened at all. I don't think I got high, I had a terrible night sleep, and it is possible that I ended up with more anxiety than I should have. I think I was so busy looking for effects I got anxious.

The only potential things was that I laughed more at a movie I was watching (or maybe it was just funny) and I seemed better able to lie on my back without restless legs. Which usually is a serious problem when I am not sleepy.

Also, I got an edible and it reeked of pot. And it tasted like pot too. So I don't think I will ever buy that excuse again that someone "didn't know" because it is seriously obvious.

I will try the creme tonight because that doesn't get you high.

So tonight I am going to take a bigger dose of the pot candy bar and see if it does anything. Apparently there are some people who cannot get high of editable. It would be just my luck.

But it is looking like this whole thing is a zillion times more complicated than I thought it was going to be.

It is looking like I will either have to vape or smoke it. Then there are particular strains that you need to get... but, I would have thought it would be easy to get but... noooo you can search for a strain and find it only in ONE place in the whole state and also, not in the format that you want. Ie.. flower rather than vape cartridge.

I will be seeing my sister tomorrow and we can compare notes. I didn't want to tell her but, it is getting so complicated I need someone who knows what they are doing.

Ya there are so many different strains of cannabis, with each one having a different effect, that the whole cannabis thing can get really confusing.


I sometimes have to rely on my friend for advice because he's much more knowledgeable than I am.

Yes. Perhaps I am impatient but last night I took a higher dose of the candy bar and felt absolutely nothing. But for, I woke up at 2 Am a little nauseous. Only *I* would take pot and get sick.

I ended up watching some you tube info on it and it was helpful. Perhaps because of its illegality but I can't get over how lame the information is on line that is written. Routinely people will comment with better information than the written article.
