Too Much of a Good Thing Can Turn Bad.”
As children we do not recognize the balance that we must develop between freedom and responsibility. Growing up I constantly reminded my parents of the numerous things I would do “once I was grown” such as: skipping mandatory bedtimes, eating dessert before dinner and a plethora of other adult dreams. Throughout our life we experience moments where we over indulge, possibly to our detriment. Eating too much Halloween candy after trick-or-treating, blacking out on our 21st birthday or staying out too late causing us to miss commitments the next morning. Through maturity, trial & error, and education, we learn to develop internal processes to avoid inflicting bodily discomfort while partaking in our favorite dessert or cocktail, juggling our social life and careers and understanding the importance of well-balanced responsible life. Incorporating marijuana into your health routine is another aspect where we must define what balance and responsibility means to us. Marijuana has an abundance of positive attributes, but too much of a good thing can turn bad.
Inhaling/Ingesting marijuana helps my anxiety, counters my lack of appetite caused by stress and rocks me to sleep as I battle insomnia. Though I use cannabis for a handful of reasons I compliment my use with other established health improvement methods such as mediation & yoga, change of diet and implementing a no-device time period before bed. When I feel myself becoming dependent on the plant I intentionally refrain or restrict my use, whether it’s only smoking after work or completing fasting from marijuana for a period of time. Using marijuana as a health supplement and not a complete regimen significantly decreases the possibly of abusing marijuana and becoming dependent on the high to function daily.
