My job can get particularly stressful most days because we operate heavy machinery.
If I’m not extremely focused, I could injure myself and my coworkers because we essentially build the bridges and roads that you drive on every single day without further thought. Granted, we work with half a dozen other contractors to finish the whole job, but we play a key role from start to finish. I had fewer issues with my mental health when I started this job, so I think that gave me more confidence at first despite having to learn all of this work for the first time and be trained on the equipment while being told of the risks. As times went on, I became increasingly stressed by the work that I do each and every day. That’s in part why I like to consume cannabis when I get home from work every night, but most marijuana strains are too intoxicating for me to use them while I’m at work. I can’t consume a bunch of THC and then operate heavy machinery that risks the lives of people other than myself. That’s why I started using CBD for daytime use, because it contains many of the same cannabinoids and terpenes as high THC marijuana, but without the intoxicating effects. You can experience the medical benefits while still feeling pepped-up and alive mentally. The CBD is great for anxiety, especially any stress that arises from the hectic work conditions of my job. The best part is being able to experience all of these beneficial effects without risking the dangers associated with consuming large quantities of THC before operating the same heavy machinery as I do every single day.
