When I need something to ease my pain during the day, I turn to a marijuana that is a sativa.
Sativa has a relaxing effect on me.
It is able to relieve my pain and relax, without making me sleepy or drowsy. I don’t get a high, which is something I am grateful for since I have a young child. I made the mistake once, when I didn’t look at the label closely enough, and I used indica in the middle of the day. I am so glad my little one was in school that day, because I was useless. I couldn’t wake up, even when my husband got home with our daughter. He told her that mommy wasn’t feeling well and he made supper. I was up to put her to bed, but I went right back to bed once she was settled. I haven’t made that mistake since that day. I watch closely as to what kind of marijuana I am using throughout the day. My daughter only goes to school twice a week, and I can’t imagine what would have happened if she had been home that day. I now buy sativa and I use it to make gummies or cookies that are kept out of her sight. When I’m in a lot of pain, I’ll eat a couple gummies or a cookie and within an hour, I am back to my old self and able to be the mom I should be. I can’t do anything to cure the pain, but thanks to marijuana, I can ease the pain and still be wide awake throughout the day.
