I stood outside the marijuana dispensary for almost an hour before walking up to door and presenting my ID card at the peephole.
- I wanted to make sure there was no one inside who knew me.
I didn’t want to explain about my insomnia and how the doctor thought medical marijuana would help me sleep. I had taken all the over-the-counters medicines available, but I still slept less than four hours and I woke up in a stupor. The same thing happened when I took prescription drugs that were supposed to help me sleep. I tried melatonin and a least fifteen other medicines before the doctor asked if I had ever used marijuana. I told him I did, but it always made me hungry and hyper. He told me that if I used the right marijuana product, it would help me sleep. He helped me get my medical marijuana ID card and told me that once I got the card; he wanted to know what the pharmacist at the marijuana dispensary recommended for me. He told me to be mindful of the different terpenes and talk to the pharmacist in depth about what I needed the marijuana for. His only fear was that I may not get into a deep rem sleep, which is the healing sleep; if I used too much too often. I talked to the pharmacist for about half an hour before she told me to try purple kush or bubba kush. They were the two best she knew of for sleep. I should use it sparingly and use it only when I needed to get some sleep.
