I hate the fourth of July and new years day.
- Those are big firework holidays.
I am a former marine and I have a mild case of PTSD. The popping sounds of fireworks drive me up a wall. My dog also hates the noise and gets upset too. I have tried getting us away from the noise to make those holidays not suck. No matter where you go, it is going to be loud and scary for us. This fourth of July weekend I was smart. I sound proofed my house as much as possible and got a speaker system to play soothing music. I then went over to my cannabis dispensary and talked about weed and CBD with the budtender. I didn’t want to be super high or anything. I just wanted to feel mellow. The budtender recommended smoking CBD oil for me and a local pet CBD for my dog. I bought a vape, a few cartridges of CBD oil and a lot of dog treats with CBD in them. Starting on July 1st my dog and 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 two of us had a way easier holiday season. We were much more mellow, listened to music, watched Stranger Things on Netflix and actually slept at a decent hour. I am going to do this when the New Year happens. My dog and I don’t need this kind of stress anymore.
