Seattle is well known for high-quality cannabis

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, I’m sure you already know all about Seattle, Washington, and the famous cannabis grown there.

Seattle approaches weed the same way they approach coding, jets, and other technological advancements.

Seattle has been a hub of development for decades, and it’s 100% true when it comes to their cannabis crops. Although cannabis is known as “weed” and has a reputation for being easy to grow, this is not true at all. Real weed takes good science, which is why Seattle has broken away from the back as innovators in marijuana strains. I have been told that the origin of the local cannabis market started decades ago, when the Hippies were fleeing the military draft for Vietnam. They migrated north to Canada, but along the way many of them stopped here in the Seattle area, where they settled down and started growing their cannabis plants in the solitude of the woods. I don’t know if that is actually true or not, but it does explain why Seattle has become a city recognized worldwide for its innovations in cannabis products. One thing I love about Seattle is how cannabis has become omnipresent, which is a fancy way of saying “weed is everywhere.” Cannabis has become completely normalized in Seattle, Washington, and you never have to walk more than a few blocks to find a dispensary. Around here, cannabis dispensaries are even more frequent than Starbucks or McDonalds, and to me that makes Seattle a pretty amazing place to live. They even sell CBD products at local gas stations.

The only thing Portland lacks is surfing

Other than a lack of surfing, Portland is the perfect city for me.

The shore is only a two hour drive through the mountains, so I can still go surfing on weekends. When I lived further south I would hit the surf almost every day of the week before I went to work. Those days are behind me, I’m afraid, but I’m not complaining because otherwise Portland, Oregon has everything I need for a happy life. Besides, the water in Oregon is so dang cold surfing isn’t as fun as it used to be. My name is Mike, and I manage one of the many cannabis dispensaries in Portland, Oregon. I moved here some years ago to attend the University of Portland, and I got a part-time job at the cannabis dispensary to pay my expenses. Two years later I had dropped out of school and was working at the cannabis dispensary full time. In Portland locally grown cannabis is big business! I made the choice to drop out of the University of Portland because it was costing money, and working here was making money. I’m no math expert, but making a paycheck instead of accumulating student debt seemed like a no-brainer. Now I am the cannabis dispensary manager, and I enjoy a great life in Portland… all except the surfing. One day my goal is to open my own cannabis dispensary on the coast of Oregon. As much as I like living in Portland, I would love to live out my last days on the shore, near the wild surf.

I’m always meeting new people in Las Vegas

One of my favorite things about living in Las Vegas is being able to meet new people every day, people who come from all around the country and the world.

Las Vegas is one of the top tourist destinations in the country – and why wouldn’t it be? This place is amazing! People come here specifically to have fun and get crazy, which means I get to meet new people at their most uninhibited.

I work the front counter at one of the many Las Vegas cannabis dispensaries during the Graveyard Shift. That means from midnight to daybreak I am in the cannabis dispensary, talking to the wild and crazy tourists of Las Vegas. For the most part all of our clients are polite and friendly, but in a town like Las Vegas there are always some people who take things too far. This is why every cannabis dispensary in Las Vegas has a security guard working the front door. Nobody ever starts a fight or causes a scene because of too much cannabis, these people are always coming in drunk from a Las Vegas casino. Usually the guard won’t even let them in the shop, but I also keep the Las Vegas Police Department on speed dial, just in case. One thing that tourists don’t realize about Las Vegas is that we are very chill, and cut tourists a lot of slack. Las Vegas is a very forgiving town. But when you cross the line and get rowdy with a Las Vegas local, the cops will take you down fast.

I drive to Philadelphia for the best prices on medical marijuana

I regularly suffer from PTSD and panic attacks.

When I feel overwhelmed, I have trouble staying on track.

Sometimes I feel like I want to crawl into a hole and never come back out. The feelings of sadness and despair can be overwhelming at times. I used to take a pill every single day to help stabilize my mood, but now I regularly use medical marijuana instead. Medical marijuana was legalized in the state of Pennsylvania back in 2016. The governor signed the rule into law stating that all citizens of the state of Pennsylvania can have access to medical marijuana if they have one of the qualifying conditions. These conditions include PTSD, anxiety, chronic pain, dementia, muscle spasms and so much more. In 2018, the first marijuana dispensary opened up in the capital city of Harrisburg. Since then, there have been more and more marijuana shops opening up across the state. One place with a great selection and good prices on marijuana is Philadelphia. The city is easily the biggest in the state. There are more than 20 different medical marijuana dispensaries between the northern part of the city and the southern part of the city. There is one marijuana dispensary in particular that I like to visit. It is located downtown by Logan square. The marijuana dispensary always has a huge selection of edibles. Edibles are great to have on the go and they help stabilize my mood and keep me calm. I like the gummies and the hard candy, but I have also tried cookies, cupcakes, brownies, and space cake.

Pain-relieving terpenes in cannabis

I prefer treating muscle and joint pain with cannabis rather than traditional prescription medications.

I’ve found that a combination of cannabis compounds, such as cannabinoids and terpenes, provide effective results.

Initially, when I shopped at the dispensary in Albuquerque, I strictly looked at the THC and CBD percentages. However, I’ve since realized that the terpenes also have a big impact on the curative properties. Terpenes are found in a wide variety of flowers, fruits and herbs. They are the reason for the unique smell of a lemon as well as a pine forest. Plants produce these aromatic chemicals to help draw in pollinators and repel animals that might otherwise eat them. Cannabis is wonderfully rich in terpene content and offers proven health benefits. Terpenes help to reduce inflammation, which also works to reduce pain. The immune system in the body triggers inflammation to protect tissues and assist in healing at the site of an injury. However this also adds pressure to surrounding nerves, causing pain. Just like cannabinoids, terpenes have the ability to suppress an aggressive immune response and lessen inflammation and pain. When cannabinoids and terpenes work together, they create what’s called the entourage effect. This means that they are more powerful in combination than alone. The cannabis plant contains over two hundred different types of terpenes, including multiple varieties that fight pain. I browse the dispensaries in Albuquerque for cannabis products that are rich in beta-caryophyllene. It has a peppery, spicy aroma that is especially helpful for pain relief. Another advantageous terpene for anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties is limonene. It’s also good for treating anxiety and depression.

Commuting to Columbia

I worked my butt off all four years of highschool in order to make it to Columbia College.

It was my dream, my goal and my purpose for those four years. When I finally got my acceptance letter, it was such a relief. I was finally going to the school of my dreams. I considered the programs offered at the school. The prestige. The colors of the college, the kinds of people, etc. What I didn’t consider is that Columbia is in Chicago. Sure I thought of the city a bit and how fun it would be to walk around it. I didn’t think about the weather though. Illinois is super cold! There is snow and ice and severe windchill. I realized that the cold weather was kicking my butt. My first year of school I lived in the dorms and froze my butt off. Year two I tried an apartment in the city. It was super expensive to live in a shoe box with nothing more than a space heater. My last two years I got smart. I rented a house in Glenview IL. It was a 35 minute drive to school in city traffic but worth it. I had a house vs a small apartment. I had a whole home heater vs a space heater. I lived in a rural area with cheaper food, gas and accommodations. I got more bang for my buck. I really liked Glenview too. The people were nice and friendly. The area was clean. If I was a cold weather fan, I totally would have made it my permanent home. After graduating at Columbia, I was done with the snow though.

I called to get an estimate on a dehumidifier

Dehumidifiers are machines that remove the humidity and moisture from the air.

  • Most dehumidifiers need some type of ventilation.

I knew that a dehumidifier could help my air conditioner work better. Down here in the south, we have a lot of trouble with humidity. I live in Lakeland, Florida, and I am very close to the water. There is always a lot of moisture inside of the air and it can make it very difficult for the air conditioner to work properly. I contacted a Lakeland HVAC business to get an estimate on a dehumidifier. I was planning to get a dehumidifier that was part of my heating and AC system, but the Lakeland contractor told me about a couple of other ideas that would work out too. The Lakeland contractor suggested two additional mini-split AC units with dehumidifier features. This would give me two dehumidifiers as well as extra AC units four times during the summer when the temperatures are 100° or higher. The cost of the two mini split AC units with dehumidifiers was less than the cost of adding a whole home dehumidifier. I was happy that I called the Lakeland heating and AC Service to help me with making the decision. I thought that I wanted one thing, but they made me realize that there were a lot more options out there that could work. When my family comes to visit in the summer, they’re going to be surprised by the new updates and upgrades. My sister always complains about the indoor temperatures here in Lakeland, but the two ductless mini split air conditioners with dehumidifiers are going to get rid of the excess moisture.

I need to replace my natural gas furnace by 2030

I live in Buffalo, New York and recently, I saw a news report that discussed the new climate change initiative that was passed by the federal government.

Basically, the initiative is trying to move all homes away from using natural gas.

Currently, there are a lot of homes in Buffalo including mine that depend solely on natural gas to keep comfortable in the Winter. I have a furnace as well as a hot water heater that uses natural gas as its source of energy. The initiative would like to replace all the natural gas appliances with highly efficient electric alternatives by 2030. The cost of replacing the furnace as well as the water heater will be astounding but the government is offering some incentives as well as tax breaks to offset the price. For now, I don’t need to do anything with my furnace or hot water heater, it mainly impacts new houses or new equipment being purchased. But if my furnace or hot water heater doesn’t last for another 7 years, I will need to upgrade to the newer units as well. I don’t know if it will be cheaper to use these new HVAC heat pumps that the government is promoting, and I don’t know if these electric heat pumps will be able to keep my home comfortable in the brutal Winter. I guess as they start to install these heat pumps in people’s homes, the data collected will show how well they are performing. At least, for now, I don’t need to worry about this new initiative, and I will deal with it when it’s time to replace my furnace or hot water heater.
