What Strain or Product Has Been a Surprise For You?
“What strain or product has been a surprise for you? Pleasantly surprised, I should say - and what do you use it for?”
On Instagram I was asked this question. And I love it! But first there is a little back story about me and cannabis.
Up until recently, cannabis and I were not friends. In fact, I didn’t even want to be associated with it. I didn’t care if you or anyone else enjoyed it, but it was not for me. I didn’t like how it made me feel. But my experience and opinion was based on a few parties that I attended when I was in my early 20’s. I had no idea what I was even “smoking” at that time. I had no knowledge of different strains, different types. I just knew the few times I did use cannabis, it put me on the couch with a permanent grin wanting to eat the whole fridge. I didn’t enjoy the “high” feeling, I didn’t like feeling out of control. And that is not my idea of a fun Saturday night.
Fast forward 20 years, and now I am more experienced and more educated on cannabis. It took taking care of my dad with late stage cancer to open my eyes to the uses and benefits of cannabis. I dove head first into researching and experimenting. I researched different strains, different terpenes, different methods of using cannabis. I took course on cannabis designed for Nurses. I experimented with high THC, low CBD and with low THC, high CBD. I experimented with smoking, taking sublingual tinctures, and topicals.
I started out with a higher THC, lower CBD tincture which helped me sleep through the most stressful time in my life. It made me feel a little more resilient to what I was going through. I tried a few other brands of CBD tinctures, some providing benefits and some not as much.
I have found a few strains of Sativa and hybrids that provide me with a sense of mental clarity, makes me feel more focused without feeling “intoxicated” or “high”. I am enjoying Red Headed Stranger and Orange Sherbert.
Peak Performance Hemp tinctures are made from a strain of cannabis high in CBD, caryophyllene and limonene; cannabinoids and terpenes which provide anti-inflammatory and anti-anxiety benefits. Feedback from my clients and customers tell me it has been extremely helpful in pain, arthritis, and getting a good night sleep.
Each method and strain gives me a different feeling, experiencing things differently, different benefits. I am pleasantly surprised on how I can use a plant based supplement to provide me such great benefits, without the use of pharmaceuticals. I am pleasantly surprised that after learning about cannabis, I can feel uplifted, balanced, and focused instead of on the couch wanting to eat the whole fridge.
