Sometimes I need something to calm me down at the end of the day, but I’m not a huge fan of alcohol. There are too many alcoholics in my family and I was always worried about that being a problem for me if I ever started consuming liquor regularly. As such, I avoided drinking after a few years of alcohol abuse in college. I had a taste for that sort of life and realized quickly that I didn’t want any part of that for my future. My brother was not as lucky as I was when it came to resistance to alcohol’s pull and grasp. He drank at the same time as I did, but he never quit like I did and he just kept drinking whenever he wanted. Now he drinks every single day when he gets home from work as a nightcap. I have come to believe that cannabis is a more effective nightcap than alcohol because of the sheer number of different strains that have been bred in the past 20 years. Anyone who wants a stronger experience can reach for one of the many different kinds of cannabis concentrates that are available on the market today. I have been sticking to cannabis edibles lately because my wife’s parents are staying with us temporarily and I don’t want either of them to smell my marijuana smoke. Even the vaporizer pen with cannabis oil inside sometimes smells like a dank strain of marijuana. That’s why it’s really convenient to have access to cannabis edibles as well. However, I learned a long time ago that cannabis edibles are a lot stronger in effect if you eat food with them instead of eating them on an empty stomach. The THC will bind to the fat in your food before that fat is absorbed into your body.
