I like to ask people why they smoke marijuana.
I actually get a wide variety of responses, because despite what the general populace may believe, weed is for a lot more than just getting stoned.
Of course, getting stoned is the most common answer. Especially now with better laws on the books people don’t have to be afraid to experiment with smoking pot. That said, there are a lot of other things that cause people to seek out medical cannabis. For me it was my sleep disorder. None of the OTC meds or sleeping pills ever helped me to get a good night’s rest as much as cannabis has. Once I discovered the soothing effects of cannabis on my sleeping mind, I stopped taking all the other meds. My best friend Jerry smokes cannabis for a very different reason, to help with his anxiety. Jerry is the type of guy who gets stressed out, and the only thing that chills him out is a fat bowl of cannabis. Specifically, Jerry has to smoke sativa strains of cannabis, because indica just doesn’t work the same for him. I will agree there are subtle differences between indica and sativa, but I enjoy both kinds. Jerry only smokes sativa, because that’s what helps his issue. Sometimes we will get together late in the evening and smoke cannabis together on my porch, and discuss the day. The cannabis settles me down and makes me sleepy, while it helps Jerry to relax. After a few bowls, I am ready for a long and restful sleep.
