I am a stay-at-home dad.
I do some freelance work in the evenings, but the goal of my existence right now is to take the best possible care of my baby girl.
She just turned three, and these early years are so important to their long term health and development. My wife and I decided that we didn’t want to put our new baby into a childcare program, that she deserved to be raised with love by her parents. I quit my office job, and started a new job as a full-time dad. One of the biggest hurdles I had to face was cannabis, because with a baby in the house I could no longer get high whenever I wanted. Some of you may think the problem would be that I smoke too much cannabis and neglect the child. That couldn’t be more wrong, because unlike drinking booze or doing hard drugs, cannabis doesn’t impact your personality or cause mood swings. Cannabis relaxes the body and mind, nothing more, so the problem isn’t being high around the baby, the problem is how to get high without affecting the baby. Secondhand smoke is so dangerous to infants, and that includes cannabis smoke. Although I was an everyday cannabis smoker, I had to switch over to using smokeless forms of marijuana. With the wide array of cannabis edibles, drinks, and vape products on the market, it was a much easier transition than I expected. I have been using cannabis edibles for a few weeks now, and I love the way they make me feel.
