It’s fun accompanying my brother on shopping trips after a year and a half of borderline isolation. Even though we’re both vaccinated, we wear masks around each other and when either of us is in public near other people. My sister got sick with COVID just one week after getting her booster shot and she was miserable for several days straight. Even at this stage in the game, COVID is no joke and not worth the risk if your mitigation effort is as simple as wearing an N-95 or KN-95 mask in public. I am seeing more people each day wearing a mask when I stop at the grocery store for a few items. So it wasn’t a huge surprise for me when my brother and I walked into the department store and saw so many faces covered for the first time in months. There was a massive free-for-all when vaccines came out but few wanted to face the grim reality that they were not a ticket to going back to “normalcy,” whatever that is supposed to mean in the first place! It genuinely sickens me that people feel entitled to their “best life” when I lived the most traumatic experiences in my past years before COVID was even a consideration. The CBD candies that I consume help with the anger and feelings of desperation and despair, so I was eager to buy more CBD candies while we were out. We stopped at a local smoke and vape shop and found several different flavors of CBD candies that had various dominant terpenes inside. I wanted the CBD candies with heavy myrcene inside because that terpene is great for sedation and relaxation.
