Cannabis helps with menopause symptoms

For the last few years, I have been going through menopause.

I deal with migraine headaches, hot flashes and insomnia on a regular basis.

I am very thankful that recreational cannabis is legal in Chicago. I am able to purchase whatever I need to treat my symptoms. The process is extremely simple. I can shop online whenever I get some free time. The website provides pictures of the products, descriptions and allows me to narrow my search by brand name, price, strain, potency, effects and weight. I can take advantage of staff favorites and daily deals and add items to my cart with a few clocks. I have an account with the dispensary with all of my personal information saved. I can check out very quickly and then opt for in-store or curbside pickup. The staff at the dispensary packages up my items and has everything ready for my arrival. These services are super helpful when I’m extra busy at work. However, whenever possible, I do like to browse the shelves of the dispensary. I enjoy asking the budtenders for insight and recommendations. I look forward to experimenting with new consumption methods and strains. I am particularly fond of cannabis-infused edibles. Buying gummies, chocolates, cookies, brownies or mints eliminates the need for any specialized gear. Consuming these treats causes no odors, smoke or ash, and they’re quite tasty. Although the effects of edibles can take a while to fully set in, they tend to be more intense and last longer than other consumption methods. An indica edibles is ideal for right before heading to bed. It helps me to sleep and reduces my chance of developing a headache or suffering hot flashes.

Las Vegas is popular for more than gambling.

Whenever I heard anyone talk about Las Vegas, NV, I naturally assumed they were talking about the famous casinos.

I always wanted to go to Las Vegas, and I promised my mom I would take her for her 95th birthday.

We went to Atlantic City on her 90th, but mom didn’t live long enough to go to Las Vegas, NV, so I went for her. I was sure she would have loved the strips and all the cool things to look at. When we went to Hoover Dam, I didn’t even want to look out over the overlook. I get seasick looking over my porch, and I would not try the dam overlook. Everywhere we went, including the abandoned haunted town, and the small museums scattered everywhere, I took a picture to keep and remember for mama. I imagined how she would have reacted when we saw the marijuana dispensaries scattered all over. Mom wasn’t one to use marijuana, but she tried some tinctures when her pain got to be too much. Knowing she could get the marijuana tinctures, and gummies without paying all the money for a medical marijuana ID card, she may have used it more. Las Vegas, NV was an amazing city and I’m not just talking about marijuana dispensaries and casinos. There is so much history in the city, and I was glad I went. I just wish mama had been there in person to experience everything I experienced and so I could take her into a real marijuana cafe, where we could have coffee and cupcakes, but like the cafe we visited in Atlantic City.

The food in Portland is amazing

They have all kinds of fancy bars, restaurants, and delis

When I went to Portland, Oregon on a business trip a few weeks ago, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I absolutely loved it there and I ended up not wanting to leave whenever it was time for me to fly back home. Something about the city just calls to me and I think I’m going to end up moving to Portland for good very soon. The best part about Portland, Oregon, was definitely the food. There are so many restaurants and food carts all around the place that you could never try them all, even if you lived there for years! I could barely even make a dent in them while I was there for two weeks on business so I definitely have to go back again. There are many delicious locally owned coffee businesses and coffee connoisseurs like me can select from all kinds of single-origin, house roasted beans. Some places will grind the beans right in front of you! Locally roasted coffee is a great draw there in Portland, and every cup that I had was better than the last. Coffee wasn’t the only thing I liked, either. They have all kinds of fancy bars, restaurants, and delis. I love Pacific Northwest cuisine, and Portland did not disappoint, that’s for sure. One of the other things that I loved about Portland was all of the cannabis dispensaries! It seemed like every street had one, and they were all very bright, clean, and full of friendly people. I can’t wait to go back there again.

I told my wife that I would like to go kayaking in Lake Ontario for my birthday

We’ve worked so hard this year that my wife insisted that we do something special for my birthday.

Despite Lake Ontario being a huge reason for my move to Toronto from Kitchener, I rarely get to the marvelous Great Lake with my busy work hours. My wife and I own and operate a cannabis consulting business. We work with cannabis dispensaries and grow operations to get them the best marketing solutions and plans for growth and sustainability. With hundreds of cannabis dispensaries operating within the city of Toronto, you have to do a lot to stand out among the pack. I understand why it’s so easy to assume that it’s all about branding, or just customer service, or simply the potency of the products you sell. In reality, it’s all of these factors plus so many more that are too numerous to simply rattle off in a short list. In fact, every dispensary is in a different place on the road to success, with some right out the gate and others with just a few kinks to fix before exploding with popularity. The reality is that you can’t assess each dispensary or grower with the same metrics and you need to give each client a special approach that acknowledges their strengths and weaknesses. We’ve worked so hard this year that my wife insisted that we do something special for my birthday. That’s when I thought back to the reasons that brought us to Toronto in the first place, and that’s when I thought about Lake Ontario again. We went kayaking in the lake for my birthday and I had the most fun I have had in years. We took a package of pre-rolled joints with us and had lots of fun in the process.

Using topicals to treat a variety of issues

I have issues with psoriasis and arthritis.

The psoriasis is a skin condition that shows up on my elbows and knees.

The rapid regeneration of skin cells causes redness, itching and soreness. It’s unattractive and somewhat embarrassing. There is no known cause or cure for psoriasis. The medicens to treat it are extremely expensive and only provide temporary relief. After using a medicine for any length of time, the psoriasis builds up a tolerance. The arthritis effects my fingers. They swell up and become stiff and painful. I struggle to perfom everyday tasks such as braiding my hair, typing on a keyboard or opening jars. The medicines can cause some worrisome long-term side-effects. Cannabis has made a huge improvement in my quality of life. Instead of making a doctor’s appointment, spending hours sitting in a waiting room, paying a fortune filling a perscription and worrying about the damage I might be causing my liver, I can just walk into the dispensary in Ann Arbor and buy a topical. The dispensary offers a wide selection of cannabis-infused topicals, including roll-ons, sprays, balms, ointments, lotions and transdermal patches. They apply directly to the skin to provide localized relief. The cannabinoids absorb into the skin, link with receptors that make up the body’s endocannabinoids system and can work to treat pain, inflammation, itching, wounds, sunburn and more. These topicals include a full spectrum of cannabinoids, such as THC, CBD and CBN, and a wide range of terpenes. They are infused with all types of essenital oils that add to the curative properties. Topicals don’t cause any psychoactive effects. They have proven extremely beneficial in treating both my arthritis and psoriasis.

Having success with tinctures

The local cannabis dispensary in Ann Arbor carries every imaginable consumption method.

  • Their shelves are filled with all different strains of smokable flower, pre-rolled joints, pre-rolled blunts, concentrates, extracts, topicals, vapes and edibles.

They offer products with high THC percentages, high CBD ratios and an equal balance of the two. I have consulted with the budtenders and learned about the unique benefits of the products. They recommended that I try tinctures to treat my issues with migraines, insomnia and hot flashes. The symptoms of menopause have been really difficult. I have been unwilling to take pharmaceuticals that cause even worse long-term side-effects. However, lying awake all night, sweating profusely and dealing with severe headaches had a negative impact on my quality of life. I was looking for a natural remedy. Cannabis tinctures are not only natural and safe, they are wonderfully convenient. The packes is especially compact. It can fit right into my pocket or purse and includes a handy dropper for precision dosing. I place a dose under my tongue and hold it there for approximately one minute. The sublingual absorption of cannabinoids provides rapid onset of effects. I don’t need to purchase any specialized gear. There is no smoke, ash, mess or odors. Plus, when store properly, tinctures have an especially long shelf life. They are also low in calories. I can add a few drops to my favorite foods or drinks and use them like an edible. With the guidance of the budtender, I’ve found a strain that has effectively treated my symptoms. I have no worries over side-effects.

I notice a lot of weed smokers on the trails in Topanga State Park

Even before moving to the Los Angeles area, I was familiar with hiking in mountainous state parks.

For one, I grew up in northwest Arkansas in the Ozark Mountains and frequented the Ozark National Forest.

My folks were raised in Russellville but moved to Dover after they finished school. This is a beautiful place to be raised in the southern midwest, especially considering my other family members that lived down the Mississippi delta did not have nearly as nice of an environment to be raised in. They were always impressed by the hilly countryside of the Ozarks because southeastern Arkansas is flat and full of farm lands. I figured that I would stay in the Ozarks forever, but it was my husband—then my college boyfriend—who dragged me to southern California with him after we finished graduate school in Little Rock. I was immediately impressed by the skyline and landscape of both the Los Angeles metropolitan area and the San Fernando Valley in particular. Just like the Ozarks, Los Angeles is littered with the Santa Monica Mountains on one end and the San Gabriel Mountain Range on the other end. We lived in a number of different places in this area before settling in the Tarzana neighborhood on the edge of Encino. We’re both avid cannabis users and love the large number of marijuana dispensaries within a few miles of our house in Tarzana. Thankfully the recreational cannabis taxes aren’t nearly as high in Tarzana as they are in places like West Hollywood and Oakland, but Los Angeles County isn’t exactly a haven for low cannabis tax rates, regardless of which neighborhood you reside in.
