I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t over thinking something.

That’s been the case since I was at least in middle school.

The idea of a middle school child contemplating implications seems a bit much even for me. And I was the middle schooler doing the over thinking. For sure, the kids today seem way more savvy. Still, I always wanted to free my mind. Somehow, I missed the recreational marijuana craze that most of my peers experienced in college. That has a lot to do with the fact that I went to a very conservative religious school. Plus, I think the student body wasn’t but maybe fifteen hundred people. So it was like everyone knew everyone anyway. But as I have been living my independent adult life, staying up in my head has gotten progressively worse. Thanks to the local cannabis spot, that’s changing. Of course, I have always been super curious about the effects of indica, sativa and those hybrid strains. But I never did anything about that curiosity because it was all illegal. Now that it’s not, I decided to stop by the local cannabis spot. And it was there that it was suggested that I try some purple haze. This is a hybrid that is predominantly indica strain. The results were immediate. It’s like the chatter and non-stop noise inside my head just stopped. Instead, I was perceiving life instead of living a conception of it in my brain. It’s such a different perspective to simply act on perception and not kill every instinct with way, way to much thought. I’m so thankful that I have cannabis in my life now as it truly has allowed me to live this life more fully.
