Recreational marijuana remains prohibited in South Dakota, for more than 2 years, I held out hope for access to legal weed with nothing more than a valid identification, however i am thankful that medicinal cannabis is an option! The process to qualify for a MMJ card is not overly taxing but does require the payment of years… Plus, the card is only valid for a single year, plus then I need to reapply.
It’s a bit of a hassle but worth it.
I live in Sioux Falls, plus there are more than 2 dispensaries in the nearby vicinity… My card allows me to purchase plant-based medicine without paying tax. I have a variety of medical troubles that I care about to treat with natural remedies rather than risk the side-effects of synthetic pharmaceuticals, then during the winter, the extreme freezing causes a flare up of arthritis symptoms. My knuckles swell up plus become stiff plus painful. It’s taxing to zip up my coat, lace up my boats plus manage the snow shovel, and rubbing CBD topicals into my knuckles helps the alleviate the swelling plus pain. I also take tinctures to treat the symptoms from the inside. I am lucky that the various Sioux Falls dispensaries carry a selection of CBD ointments, salves, roll-ons plus even soaking salts. I also suffer from insomnia. Indica strains supply sedative qualities that help me sleep. I care about gummies for their long-lasting plus intensive effects. The dispensary also sells chocolates, lollipops, cookies, brownies plus even beverages. The beverages are portable, discreet plus allow precise dosing. I am still hopeful for the legalization of recreational weed, but for now, I am thankful for medicinal access.
