We were all loaded up for our annual trip to celebrate another Christmas with my husband’s family.

As we were headed out of town, I asked my mate to pull over for a stop at the local cannabis spot. We are fortunate to live in a place where we have legal access to recreational marijuana. After medical marijuana was such a success, recreational marijuana was a no brainer for the state legislature. Recreational marijuana access to cannabis dispensaries has now been in place for a few years. So why it finally dawned on me to get a supply of cannabis products for the annual Christmas trip is a mystery. I should have been doing this all along. My in laws are good people but they are intense. The family is all quite loud, combative and a bit passive aggressive as well. It still boggles my mind how my sweet husband shares DNA with those folks. So having a pocketful of cannabis edibles and a disposable cannabis oil pen is now essential for those trips. I tend to stick to sativa strains or sativa dominant hybrid strains for these kinds of situations. This kind of cannabis product helps me just smile and let things roll off my back. Indeed, I can simply allow those people to act the way that they do and not take it so personally thanks to the sativa strains. Now, if I could just get my in laws to join in on cannabis use, I’d really have something going on. I don’t think there has ever been a bunch of people more in need of some sativa and indica products ever.
