My buddy Gene never smokes weed.
- I’ve known her for years, & I had never seen her partake even once, however she didn’t like to drink booze or smoke tobacco absolutely often, either for that matter.
Her main complication with weed was that it was illegal at the time. Also, she was scared that it would mess with her blood pressure, because Gene had chronically high blood pressure. This past year the state overwhelmingly voted to legalize medical & recreational cannabis use, & I was thinking that it was time to supply Gene a little cannabis education. I asked her to come with me to the local cannabis dispensary, where I had booked a one-hour meeting with their head budtender. First of all it was pressing that she not try to smoke cannabis, because any kind of smoking is not very good for a person’s blood pressure. Gene did have a good amount of possibilities when it came to edibles & vape products… Once again, due to her elevated blood pressure it was sincerely smart to avoid vape products, although their impact on blood pressure is not yet determined. Cannabis gummies & edibles could supply the physical relaxation Gene was seeking without making her feel stoned or loopy. I made sure that I was present the initial time Gene took cannabis edibles, because I just had to see what she was like. The edibles made Gene so mellow & relaxed, & she was much sillier than usual. I care about smoking my cannabis instead of eating it, even though I have to admit that hanging out with Gene when she was stoned was a huge amount of fun. I want to do it again fairly soon.
