Marijuana is legal in Oregon. Medical marijuana has been legal for years but recreational marijuana has only been legal for about a year. Marijuana dispensaries have cropped up everywhere. In a 2-mile radius of my home there are 6, about the same as the number of Starbucks.
A visiting friend from out of state wanted to try some CBD cream for aches and TH for flying anxiety. Off we went to a marijuana dispensary that was formally a Curves Studio.
The young woman who checked us in, checking ID, was baked! I thought this might not be the best store, but we continued. Once inside most of the other shoppers were over 40. This surprised me. The staff was all young people. We asked for help and really the young man helping us was very informative and had several suggestions.
My friend bought taffy for flying. It was supposed to calm and relax her so maybe on long flights she could dose off easily. The cream, only CBD, was to use everyday on her sore body parts. When asked if I wanted to buy some taffy too, I told him I had too many crowns and 2 implants to risk eating anything remotely close to taffy. Yes he was young and maybe a bit high, but he had no idea what I was talking about!
We took the label off the taffy before my friend took her next flight. When she returned I asked if the taffy worked? It was sealed so well that she couldn’t open it and did not feel comfortable asking a flight attendant to open it for her!
I told another friend about my impressions with the marijuana dispensary and she wanted to go. She was looking for something to help with sleep. She asked around and was suggested another dispensary, still in my neighborhood. Because it was right before Christmas the place was packed. Their inventory was a bit low but they were replenishing as fast as possible. She bought a few edibles, and some sleep chocolates and has been very happy. Yes Very Happy with her purchases!
A good friend gave me for Christmas some CBD cream and CBD gel. It is lovely, smelling wonderful mixed with lavender making a nice replacement for my moisturizer.
