Welcome to The Budding Break Room!
I am so glad you decided to join me on this journey towards better living, in particular, through cannabis. How did I get here, you might wonder?
About 12 years ago, I started experiencing generalized aches and crippling fatigue. It had gotten so bad that I literally slept an entire summer away and could not even muster up enough energy to go for a run. I went to the doctor, had some blood tests done, and was told that I may have Lupus! LUPUS???!!!
Being the problem-solver that I am (after I stopped sobbing), I asked about my treatment options. Unfortunately, my doctor went on to describe a lifetime of pill-popping that would eventually damage my liver, to say the least. “There had to be a better way”, I thought.
I began exploring alternative, more holistic ways to get and stay healthy. I investigated everything from foods, oils, herbs, yoga, exercise…you name it. Anything to keep me from hopping on the Rx Train. So, it may come as no surprise, that with more and more states (mine in particular) legalizing medical marijuana that my exploration of it as an alternative to prescription drugs blossomed.
I have learned and continue to learn some amazing things about cannabis and how it actually helps us help ourselves. I have also learned that despite this, many are uncomfortable asking questions, trying it for themselves and simply can’t get past the stigma and stereotypes associated with using cannabis. Hence, the reason for this site.
Thank you for joining me on this journey to explore cannabis and all it can do to help us be our best selves.
