I NEVER would have thought I'd like being just a liiiiittle high at the gym, but man, my workouts have improved significantly. I feel like I stay more focused on what I'm there to do and the slight high makes me focus less on how "tired" I am (from, say, lack of sleep the night before).

Also, for years I suffered from really, really bad insomnia. Since I've started vaping before bed (really only in the last two months), I've slept like a baby almost every single night. In that sense it has TOTALLY changed my life. I'm more alert the next day at work, less grumpy because of the exhaustion, and less anxious than I was before (even when I'm not high).

Before I moved to CO I used to smoke once in a while, but since moving to CO I've truly seen, first hand, how incredibly beneficial the long-term effects of (regularly) using marijuana are on the human body and mind. It's pretty incredible, especially when it's regulated so that what you're using is the purest stuff literally anywhere on the planet.

I, too, RARELY drink liquor anymore. I still love craft beer, but the zero-calorie factor of marijuana use combined with the clean pulls from my vape have left me using marijuana more and more in place of alcohol on weekends. I love not taking in so many empty calories while also knowing I'll wake up feeling great and ready to go about my normal routine the next day. Alcohol doesn't provide that to me. If the current initiative in Denver, where they're considering legalizing vaping in restaurants and bars, passes, I may stop drinking altogether, because then I can replace "booze" as a social lubricant with marijuana.
Pretty much man, although I'm good on that kiss

I've found it has helped me with my exercise. Not getting stoned, but a few hits before a long hike or a long bike ride has helped me. Clears my head, eases any muscle/joint pain, and allows me to see things more vividly.

Right before I moved here I did about 3 months of backpacking in Northern California. It was on that trip that I really dove into how I react to different strains - these are things I couldn't do in Illinois when bud is just bud. But now I know how I react to sativa vs. indica, edibles versus flower, tinctures versus vape pens, and I can use it more effectively depending on the situation I am in.

I don't blame people for not really understanding marijuana, no one was taught and we've all been DARED into thinking it's a drug like heroin. The sad thing is there is real medicine in it that people would benefit from. If only they were educated and open minded.
