During my first few years of cannabis use, I would lust after the thought of living in a state with access to legal marijuana.
At the time, there had yet to be a single state in the country to pass a law legalizing recreational marijuana, and all legal states merely had medical marijuana legislation.
However, this all changed in just a handful of years when the first state in this nation finally legalized recreational marijuana use for adults 21 and up. My friends and I at the time were all making various plans to move out to this state once we had the funds and ability to do so. In reality, only one of my friends actually made it out there, and he left after graduating from law school. In the years since, over half of the country has passed both medical and recreational cannabis laws. It’s easier to find a state with some form of legal cannabis than to find one without. While my state is still far from legalizing recreational marijuana, we have had legal medical cannabis since the beginning of 2017. I got a card later that year and I have had one since. I started using CBD products specifically after my medical marijuana doctor recommended I try the cannabinoid to help with my various anxiety issues. To my joy, it worked wonders and I kept buying it. While CBD is sold in places as diverse as grocery stores and gas stations, I’d much rather purchase my CBD and hemp products from my local medical cannabis dispensary. That way I know where the CBD is being sourced from and can be sure that it’s a potent product that won’t leave me disappointed and feeling ripped off.
