weed eater

Image result for weed photos download
since it was illegal
i didnt ever consume it during the 60s and 70s
well maybe once i did

i made a decision
since it was illegal
i didnt want to get caught with it
have it on my record

my ultimate goal in life
was to be a physician
i didnt want anything to prevent that from happening

i said no
to the weed

that was
until 7 years ago
when i got first diagnosed

i would sometimes have a several days run of
sleepless nights
mostly because of my taking the alzheimers drug
aricept (donepezil)
which interferes with my sleep
i wake up too early sometimes
like 3-4 hours too early
wide awake too early

if i do this several days in a row
it all interferes with my day to day living

so early on
someone sent me edible weed
to help with the sleep
i tried it
it only made me restless like if i had too much coffee
before bedtime

a few years later
i tried a vaped weed
it burned like fire when i inhaled it
it didnt work well at all

i know there are hundreds of different weeds
some high in thc
some low in thc
but high in cbd

the thc makes you feel good
the cbd is what shows a lot of promise in neurological diseases
many antiweed states have the cbd weed legalized
its the stuff that seems to help folks who have uncontrollable
especially kids

so there is a component of weed
that shows promise in treating neurological disases
yes like alzheimers disease

two acquaintances have recently used weed
to control the nausea and appetite suppression
from chemotherapy
it also helped with the anxiety

the research is hard to do
since its rated by the us government
right there beside heroin

here in california
it is now legal to grow it
although commercially there are a lot of rules attached
to growing it
its legal to possess a small amount
you can even grow some yourself

now here where we live
they are trying to be slow about getting the permits done
so it will be eventually sold in stores throughout the county

weed is not going away
the governments are about to make a ton of money off its sales
local governments are about to have a financial profitable
industry move in

ive decided
im ready to particpate
i look at this stuff like a drug
for me its to assist in sleeping at night
maybe helping slowing down the alzheimers disease some
make my life better each day

i dont plan on getting high or use it during the day
just an edible at night
so i can
feel rested the next day

it has to be safer than ambien or halcion or those other sleeping pills

i wont use a smokable
that cant be good for the lungs
just an edible for me

its time
we look at this drug
for its positive benefits
to those of us
with neurological diseases
incurable ones most of them

have nothing to lose

  1. Please let us know. I'm so curious about the sleep. I won't babble about my probs, but I don't sleep and have been on ambien too long.

    1. denise
      it can be hard to wean off ambien if you have been on it for a long time
      dont do it without the help of your doctor
      ill post if the green stuff works for me
