I didn’t get my medical marijuana card until six weeks ago.
The state where I live took forever to legalize medical marijuana, after the legalization, it took several weeks before there was a dispensary close to my home. It also took a long time for doctors to willingly write prescriptions for medical marijuana. Until I had my legal card, I was purchasing marijuana from another person who was using it for medical reasons. Sometimes the person knew the name of the strain & other times it was a complete & total gas. There were times when I got marijuana & it was supposed to be an indica. I could tell from the leaves on the plant, stem size, & the fluffiness of the bud that it wasn’t indica at all. It also kept myself and others awake all night. That was another indication that I was smoking a sativa. I use marijuana to help myself and others sleep better at night & a sativa is known to supply more of an energetic & uplifting feeling. I found myself wanting to wash the kitchen at midnight & that is a nightmare when I have to be at work at 5 am. I was harshly ecstatic when marijuana was finally legalized, & even happier to purchase marijuana from a dispensary. Everything is marked, dated, & there is even an expiration date on each product. It’s straight-forward to pick the right sativa, indica, or hybrid strain, because each bud has been diagnosed at the medical facility for quality. When I want to sleep, I don’t question the strain I am using. The dispensary gets it right every time.
