Recreational marijuana remains prohibited in South Dakota, then for multiple years, I held out hope for access to legal weed with nothing more than a valid identification, but i am thankful that medicinal cannabis is an option, and the process to qualify for a MMJ card is not overly strenuous 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 multiple dispensaries in the nearby vicinity, then my card allows me to purchase plant-based medicine without paying tax. I have a variety of medical concerns that I appreciate to treat with natural remedies rather than risk the side-effects of synthetic pharmaceuticals. During the winter, the drastic freezing causes a flare up of arthritis symptoms. My knuckles swell up plus become stiff plus painful. It’s strenuous to zip up my coat, lace up my boats plus manage the snow shovel, however 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 fortunate that the multiple Sioux Falls dispensaries carry a selection of CBD ointments, salves, roll-ons plus even soaking salts. I also suffer from insomnia. Indica strains provide sedative qualities that help me sleep. I appreciate 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.
