I can even cut a gummy in half for an especially mild dose.
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve had an increasingly difficult time falling asleep and staying asleep. I’ve spent countless nights lying awake for hours. There are times when I’ve gotten up at three or four in the morning to clean the house, read, work or even workout. I would get bored with lying in bed and staring at the ceiling. Without sufficient sleep, it’s very hard to get up in the morning. I then feel sluggish and tired the whole day. When the insomnia got particularly bad, I began feeling depressed. I considered over-the-counter as well as prescription sleeping pills. However, after looking into the potential side-effects, I opted against it. I decided that struggling to get enough sleep was better than significant damage to my long-term health. When I was complaining about how exhausted I felt to a coworker of mine, she suggested a trip to the cannabis dispensary in Muskegon. The idea of a plant-sourced medicine appealed to me. Because recreational cannabis is now legal in Michigan, I’m able to shop for sleep aids without an MMJ card. Consulting with a budtender at the Muskegon dispensary was especially helpful. She helped me explore different consumption methods. She explained that products in the indica category are typically associated with relaxation and sedative properties. I most often choose gummies because dosing is easy and edibles provide lasting effects. While the effects of edibles take a while to set in, I make sure to plan ahead. I can even cut a gummy in half for an especially mild dose. I’ve found that cannabis is wonderfully effective. I am able to relax, fall asleep and remain asleep. In the morning, there are no residual effects.
