I’m sitting down to write this 27 days before the launch of the site. I find myself feeling reflective about the journey that brought me here, and I wanted a candid chance to share it with all of you.
For starters, I’m somewhat of a newcomer to the marijuana scene in almost every way imaginable. I wasn’t a high school stoner. I did not partake at parties, and the one time I did I was unimaginably ill, but I’d also been drinking quite a lot. My parents weren’t into it, and most of my friends weren’t. So how did I get here?
To answer that, the next thing you need to know about me is that I suffer from both a severe anxiety disorder and a depressive disorder. This is something I have wrestled with all my life, even before I knew what it was. When I finally got medical help in the forms of therapy and medications, I found myself living a much better existence overall, but my troubles weren’t eradicated.
I had been pondering cannabis use for a while to treat my aforementioned symptoms. I had very few users in my life to consult and every dispensary trip ended in disaster. Not only did I not know what I was looking for, but there was very little practical advice for beginners that I received beyond, “try it and see what happens.”
Fast forward through a few miserable highs from “try it and see what happens”, and I finally hit gold! I found a vape that worked for me, and I was pretty much off to the races from there. I never forgot just how difficult getting started was, and I now know from experience that it doesn’t have to be that way. There were key gaps in the information I had that could have landed me nearer the target from day one. Information that I hope you’re finding on Green Witch.
Now I’m sitting here, slightly buzzed from smoking a strain called Widow Cake that I enhanced with a sprinkling of rose petals. I sit here feeling happy and calm from a high it took me a long time to find. A high that brings me relief even though I’m in the middle of wondering what the hell I’m doing starting a business, let alone one related to weed. As I sit here, I realize once again that this feeling is precisely why I’m doing this. Why I am spending countless hours building and creating. I’m doing it to be a resource for the people who are just like me and need a helping hand. I’m doing this so you can join me in this sensation, in the gratification of finding something that makes you feel the way you want to feel no matter your reasons for seeking it.
If you’ve made it this far into my story, from the bottom of my heart, I thank and appreciate you. I hope you’re finding what you need here, and if you’re not, I want to know that too. (There’s always more to learn, after all!)
Best wishes to you from the past!
