I remember watching Oprah turn 50 on television and hearing her describe a miraculous, liberating shift in mindset. No longer driven by what the world thought, Oprah, as a woman in her 50s could finally, authentically be herself without self-doubt.
Pain is the most common condition which patients say they use cannabis. Across the country it comes in as the top reason in multiple surveys of medical marijuana patients, reaching 90% in some states. This is no surprise, as approximately one in every four Americans, have experienced pain that lasts longer than 24 hours, and millions more feel acute pain.

Each stage in the cycle plays a critical role in sleep’s restorative process, allowing you to feel mentally and physically refreshed when you wake.
I recently came across a meme: “We’ve been in quarantine so long that I’ve had time to get in shape, get out of shape, and get back in shape.” It gave me a good laugh because I, and many others, can completely relate. When times are unusual, it’s easy to obsess over our physical health or conversely, put it on the backburner.
