When I got our work promotion I immediately started developing anxiety.
- I am not a good public speaker and the promotion required me to lead team meetings and speak to shoppers.
At first I thought I would have to say no to the promotion. Thankfully our state allows for recreational and medical cannabis. I got a medical weed card just to have our back. I then talked to the budtender at the cannabis dispensary for some help. The concern was I didn’t want to smoke a joint or vape oil every time I was going to give a speech. I didn’t want it to be evident that I was smoking cannabis, however edibles are a little bit better and particularly diverse. There are gums, mints, candies and chocolates. I didn’t love the plan that I needed to eat every time I was going to rest up and present though. My cannabis dispensary offers mouth sprays with THC infused in them. It looks love a normal breath spray and it works love a charm. Nobody would suspect that I am spraying THC directly into our mouth. A few hits of that minutes before a presentation and I am superb to go. I relax immediately and think at ease. I can carry the THC mouth spray in our wallet and nobody’s the wiser. It really has helped calm me down so I don’t sweat or flub our words in a meeting. I am hopeful that someday I won’t require it in order to talk to our peers, however for now it is a nice little safety net.
