First Medicated Disc Golf Session Ever

I am not someone who can claim to have smoked a lot of marijuana before I got my cannabis card. In fact, I had not smoked or used cannabis since I was in college many years before I got my card. Although I didn’t really fit into what I perceived to be the “cannabis culture”, I did enjoy doing a lot of the things that smokers seemed to enjoy.

One of those activities that I absolutely loved was Disc Golf. I loved being outdoors and challenging aspect that the game delivers. I worked my way up from being pathetic to just bad, and I loved every moment of it. I can even claim to have a hole in one to my credit, although I did not see the shot go in as I slipped on the concrete launch pad (two of my other friends did though, so it counts!).

However, once I began getting sick and feeling the effects of my progressive disease, I could not play as often. Eventually 18 holes turned into 9, and those 9 holes evolved into me not going any more, as my body could not take the torque or long walks required in the game.

When I began medicating with cannabis, I noted improvements to my conditions, and that I could once again begin running. Since I am feeling so good, I decided that it was time to return to the course and try my hand at disc golf again.

I ended up going today, a Saturday where the temperature reached 70 degrees and there was not a cloud in the sky. A few friends and I headed up to Kensington Park in Milford, and I opted to medicate before the trip. I ended up smoking a quick bowl of Blueberry Yum Yum (one of my faves) beforehand and caught a ride with my friend Matt.

We ended up starting the game, and I was so happy to be back in the park. I was relaxed and just enjoying the weather. I ended up taking my first shot and saw it soar… and angle into the woods!

After about 5 minutes of searching through the trees I ended up finding my disc and actually hit a good shot. I ended up getting par on the first hole… and it all went down hill from there.

I think that I only hit par on about 5 holes, but I was so buzzed that I can’t tell you that for certain. I played so bad, but had such a great time knowing that medical cannabis is enabling me to do the things I love so much.

The best part of this situation is that I did not feel any pain at all afterwards. Many exercise activities make me feel so much pain that I cannot do anything for 2 to 3 days after. This was not the case after disc golf, and I am eagerly awaiting my next trip to the course.
