D8 Gummies Changed my life

I NEVER USED DRUGS IN MY LIFE.
I was one of the few "just say no" kids that took my pledge seriously.
not because of Nancy Regan 🤣
I grew up experiencing the horrors of drug use. I had two great uncles who succumbed to Alcohol abuse and just abandoned their families till Alcohol killed them.

My favorite Uncle abandoned 2 great families he had started separately, and choose to marry cocaine instead. And he was such a brilliant, It was a tragedy when he died.

It wasn't difficult for me to decide to live a drug free life at 9 years old. After witnessing the destructive power of substance abuse in my family.

However, I never viewed WEED as anything other than a fun plant.
but still it was illegal and I got into GOVERNMENT contacting. which of course can sometimes involve drug testing.

So again I knew it was best I stay away.

2020 Imploded my Fitness business. I held fitness contracts with about 6 or 7 different GOVERNMENT agencies in DC.

AFTER MARCH 14TH OF 2020, found myself completely unchained.

So one night while I was out with a girlfriend. We stumbled upon a street protest IN DC. The restaurant where a bouncer was filmed dragging a woman out by her hair.

At first it seemed like a giant street party. and it was that too.💜

I saw this thick man in gray short shorts. high heeled black ankles boots. no shirt. selling THC gummies out of a sandwich baggie.

I looked at my girlfriend and said, "I'm buying one"! he took payment on cash app Easy right.🤷🏾‍♀️

I am not recommending that anyone purchase Cannabis from someone only wearing Gray shorts and high heel boots on the streets of DC. 🤣
However, I chose to do it because I knew I was going to be safe with the person I was with.

And later that night when that gummy hit, it just felt like I was floating in waves cascading over my body and my mind. I Felt like my mind was expanding in a way it never had before. I knew I had found something incredible. And I can't even begin to go into how my life has changed over the last year and a 1/2 since I 1st popped in gummy. I would just say that my ability to feel love, and to pass love on to the people that I love never would have gotten to this point without that night. And for the record I use gummies only when I'm on my monthly cycle because I find The most moment of clarity and I don't do it all the time just when I feel like there's something I need to understand better.

And that's how cannabis changed my life. It made me a Genius of Love and LIFE #TRUTH

Thank you for coming to my Ted talk

An no I am not High Right now

5. Delta 8 Gummies

They are my brand
I tried a few other brands. But Delta 8 is the one for me.. it's hemp. so it's only 3% THC

I am not a smoker🤷🏾‍♀️
I live in a condo. I can smell people smoking cigarettes from a block away.
smelling bad shit is my worst super power🤣

2. I think what you experienced is the very reason it was made illegal in first place

(as you may well know) Those who created/contributed to the prohibition of cannabis don't want us to be happy, to see beyond the curtain of bull$hit, to have knowledge, to question their authoritarian take on everything, to love each other, to choose peace and cooperation, to share, to refuse to fight their wars for profit.
I'm glad you are happy!

6. You are 100% correct

I've researched the history of why this country made cannabis illegal and it was all based on lies by wealthy white. 1st because hemp would have replaced most of their industries. And so America chose the very deadly tobacco industry instead.

And also cannabis is a wonderful enlightener for women because if you use it during your monthly cycle it really opens your mind up in a way it never has been. And probably the women that were using cannabis realized they were with men they didn't love and didn't need to be with anymore. That probably ticked off a lot of dudes so instead of deciding to become better people that the women would choose to want

They took our fun away instead

I just get tired. What you experienced seems like my experiences with LSD and mushrooms.

8. My massage therapist once explained to me that right brained people

Don't tend to have the same effect, as us free thinking left brain people.

I don't know if that's true or not. And perhaps maybe you took a dose that was too strong for I don't know.

I only use hemp gummies so my amount of THC is 3% or less because I always cut my gummies up.

Maybe if you try THC hemp instead of the full marijuana, you may feel differently. I don't know.

I am not a doctor, but I can certainly play one on TV🤣

29. the few times i ate d8 i just got tired as well.. maybe i no longer have receptors?

..... as im a daily weed user. Maybe if I had no experience with pot i would have had a different reaction. But even pot doesnt really get me high any longer.

25. Thanks for the inspiration.

Had a 1/2 oz I was less than impressed with. Did the low, slow heat and it came out great. Now trying to decide on making cannabutter or just mixing in. Finding 1/4 teaspoon has a really nice affect.

13. jury is still out for me on the Delta 8 gummies. They are legal here in NC - sold in lots of places.

I've tried it 2 or 3 times - was surprised at how "hard" they hit me - and how long the effect lingered. The reports of feeling focused, productive, etc was not my experience. I felt slow (not unpleasantly so) more than anything else.

Your post reminds me I need to give them another try, though!

I am not sure there is any substance of any kind that can dull the depressing effects of the orange asshole and his cult.

14. D9

Delta 9 is better and doesn’t need a convoluted chemical process to extract it from the plant. Sadly, still not legal everywhere yet.

16. Both D8 and D9 are available in Louisiana.

The folks at my dispensary said the difference, in layman's terms, is that D8 will probably make you sleepy while D9 is more psychotropic. I have found that both of them help me sleep. Sometimes D8 will also make me high but not always. D9 is a good mellow high for me.

26. You may want to look into this

There is something about 3% of weight in the new legislation regarding hemp. I ordered some Delta 9 gummies and I'm in a non-legal state. I have seen posts from other businesses that are selling Delta 9 gummies. It is some loophole in the law. The Delta 8 stuff along with Kratom and all kinds of other crap is sold in stores every 3 blocks around here.
I do not have any stock or any commercial interest in this business, but I got mine from here: https://recreational8.com/product/delta-9-thc-bundle/
They do have a lot of Delta8 stuff, but they do sell and ship Delta 9 gummies to almost every state.

From their site-
The 2018 Farm Bill specifically made all derivatives, isomers, and cannabinoids in hemp legal, provided the final product has less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC. For reference, Delta 8 THC is an isomer of CBD, a derivative of hemp and CBD, a cannabinoid naturally found in hemp, and is ultimately contained in our extracts with less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC.

Peace

Unfortunately, I am in a period of active job search now and have to abstain. Can't wait until this is over so I can get my relief again.

17. I always experience feelings of gratitude and well being

It just makes me appreciate what I have, which is really needed for me in a time of covid and inflation.

As Ray Wylie Hubbard writes, "when my gratitudes exceed my expectations, I always have a good day." That's what gummies do for me. Nice to hear what they do for you.

18. Will either D8 or D9 help with pain relief? I've never used cannabis in my life, been trying to get

up the nerve for a long time now. I've gotten varying advice on how to start out.

I'd love to experience a bit of a high, but more importantly to get some relief from chronic pain. It's legal in my state.

22. I known many people who got high for the

first time didn't even realize they were high. I think they're expecting a much different experience. Basically all it does is make you happy and feel good. Try a low dosage and wait for around hour to an hour and a half and you should start feeling something. If not, up the dosage next time.

28. i tried d8 and it didnt feel any kind of anything :(

Im in legal land (and personal FREEDOM land) so I grow my own. I have a BC Northern Lights Bloom Box and I usually grow WAY more than I can possible use... so I got a LEVO ll oil machine and infused a lot of my overstock into oils and have that stored for baking.

For my birthday, Hubby bought me a tCheck..a personal at home THC test for home grown and edibles. Once I figure out how to use it I will be able to know exactly the dose in anything i make..or grow. This is great for folks who dont tolerate smoking but still need to dose for pain, anxiety etc. The tCheck will help determine what dose you need without greening out.

30. Oh wow that sounds awesome

What is tCheck?
I am growing too little sad hemp plants
I'm not really sure what to do with them but I have a small garden in my backyard so I backyard so I planted a couple of seeds once they made it legal in Virginia

I'm not a smoker either I don't want to smell like marijuana, And I live in a condo with very thin wall so I don't want to make the neighbors high lol

I have actually tried full on THC yet I've just been using hemp products.

Do you make how to YouTube videos because everything you are doing sounds fascinating
