I bought some CBD after all...
Though the woman there advised me to smoke it to release the CBD, I had heard a tea works too (as long as you also chew on the buds), and as a former smoker, if I can avoid smoking anything, I am going to do so. I am even wary of vaping, so tea it was. I boiled some water with the pot in it, just enough for a joint, and let it steep for a while. Then I poured the tea and sipped away.
The result was a warm calm that crept over me, like a cozy blanket. It felt like a high, sort of like what I remember, but without any weird mental reactions or stoner shit. Also, emotionally I began to feel better than I have been feeling as of late, and it was soothing to the mind, unlike my last experience with marijuana. This seems to be exactly what I needed.
I have quite a bit for several more pots of pot tea, and I get the impression that CBD can have profoundly healing effects, not just on the body or mind but also on the soul. I wanted the buds, not the oil, because I get the sense pranically it would be stronger in plant form, and I want to use it as a spiritual medicine. I am mentioning this use right now to catalogue any healing effects I might get from using CBD marijuana, so I can look back on changes as progress is made, should this be successful.
I was wary of trying any pot at all anymore, but I guess this really is safe for the mind.
UPDATE: I later tried smoking some, and yes - I can definitely handle this! My mind even feels soothed by it, not bombarded, like it does with THC. I get a euphoric feeling that feels more emotional than like some weird pot trip, and there's a sense of relaxation, but my mind doesn't go wonky. Hopefully I can benefit psychologically and spiritually from the medicine of CBD. Also, I am prone to tension headaches, so this could help with those as well. Might invest in a vape device, or might just stick with the tea.
