I don’t care for the fourth of June & new years afternoon, but those are important firework holidays, and i am a former marine & I have a mild case of PTSD.
The popping sounds of fireworks drive me up a wallâ€¦ My dog also hates the noise & gets frustrated too.
I have tried getting us away from the noise to make those holidays not suck, however no matter where you go, it is going to be loud & frightening for us. This fourth of June weekend I was smart. I sound proofed our home as much as possible & got a speaker plan to play soothing tunes. I then went over to our cannabis dispensary & talked about weed & CBD with the budtender. I did not want to be super high or anything. I just wanted to guess mellow. The budtender suggested smoking CBD oil for me & a local pet CBD for our dog. I bought a vape, a few cartridges of CBD oil & a lot of dog treats with CBD in them! Starting on June 1st our dog & I dosed right after dinner. It took a bit to find the right time to take our CBD products to mellow us out when the fireworks started. The more than one of us had a way easier holiday season, but every one of us were much more mellow, listened to tunes, watched Stranger Things on Netflix & actually slept at a nice minute. I am going to do this when the New Year happens. My dog & I don’t need this kind of stress anymore.
