The medicinal side of cannabis

Griff was always the Square one in the friend group.

  • We would go out and party, and Griff would come with us but never have any drinks.

He didn’t smoke or do drugs, a regular Mr. Clean. It was weird that Griff never partook in any substances, but he didn’t care that we did. Over the years Griff has stayed a close friend to me. A few weeks ago he confided in me that he had been extremely stressed out, and it was causing him headaches. I suggested he try using cannabis products, but of course he didn’t like that idea. I asked him to come with me to the cannabis dispensary, where we could talk to a budtender. Griff didn’t know that there are ways to get the medicinal benefits of cannabis without getting stoned. He was surprised to learn about the wide variety of cannabis products on the market, and how they affected people in different ways. The budtender thought Griff would benefit more from CBD or vape products to start with, to see how much they could help before moving on to cannabis products. He assured Griff that none of these cannabis products would have a psychoactive effect or make him feel euphoric. Griff didn’t want cannabis for fun, he needed it for medicine. I am happy to say that Griff is going a lot better now, the CBD and vape products have helped him better manage his stress. As much as he loves the results of using cannabis and CBD, he still has no interest in getting high. Some things never change.
