Cannabis. Who knew something so taboo could change my life?
I was on my senior trip, and for the first time in my life I was being offered weed. In my Nigerian family, it was a huge taboo, and I was reluctant towards trying it. At the time, my friends were shocked I was so scared to try it. Flash forward two years, and I toke every day.
In my opinion I am not like most people who smoke, because I don't waste cannabis in a blunt or splif; as a college student, I am all about conservation of the magic bud! One hit from my vaporizer, bong or pipe (well, maybe two!) and I am good to go! Then it’s time to move onto something productive like writing this!
As a former heavyset girl, I can say cannabis changed my life and has helped me lose over 50 pounds by motivating me to go for daily runs with a toke beforehand. I get myself to run longer and more efficiently than while sober, haha! I know, funny, right?
There is really nothing bad I can say about my friend cannabis; it gives me time to think at the end of the day and makes me excited about the things I find most dreadful. Once you find ways to ignore the munchies, if you mind it, toke up and go for a walk on a nice sunny day! Life is beautiful.
