Go Forth, Go Cannabis

I am extremely excited and blessed to share with you an article that I wrote and was published by the Emerald Magazine of Humboldt County. Click here to read the article on their website or just keep reading.

Each of us have some use for the plant, whether it’s juicing, consuming, ingesting, smoking, growing or producing this medicine of the gods. We are so blessed to be living in a community of such awareness and abundance in every way. But what is it that I do you ask…

Well, my story was established a long time ago. But for now, we can begin with the focus I have had on juicing, and my fascination with CBDs and the non psycho activity of the cannabis plant itself. Years ago, I started off by simply begging the dispensaries to keep bags of local organic fresh leaves for me to juice when they could. From there, I had found myself in a position of actual need… and that launched me into the use of topical (medicinal strength, salve) and then internal (RSO) for my own health condition. I now know that particular illness was an energetic manifestation of my own emotions. Let’s just say my sacral chakra was stuck…and my body was trying to tell me about it. And even after all the appointments with qualified healthcare professionals, alternative practitioners, biopsies, blood work and negative feedback, I took a breath and settled into my own inner guidance. I began to find a renewed love for the spiritual side of cannabis.

Around that time, coincidently or not… I was accepted into the Cannabis Healing Institute and started a year and a half long educational venture with the guidance of Wendy Reed. I learned so much that it gave me a new perspective of the uses of cannabis and its history. I worked with integrity for the plant and accomplished my goal of being one of the first in the state of California to be Certified as a Cannabis Therapy Consultant. For that, I am thankful. I now have the knowledge, experience, and confidence to further educate others.

cannabis therapyThose few years were the most potent I had had — cannabis and the connection we share is of no other herb. Cannabis showed me how to see past the fear and stay strong, giving me hope when nothing else did. Juicing alone was my medicine at that time. I built up from one ounce a day to more than four ounces, it was rough. I called them “shamrock shakes” and they were anything but delicious until I started adding almond milk. Then they started to resemble something more like the traditional cannabis drink, Bhang. Which, by the way, is uber yummy and very potent as well as a powerful intoxicant. Bhang is a mild preparation of cannabis from young leaves and stems, traditionally used in food or drink in India. Conscience use of it in ceremony, with intention is defiantly the way to go.

I am a huge advocate of cannabis, as you can tell, and most people are very surprised to know I do not even smoke. I respect the plant for her healing properties and recognize she is an ally. She has so many qualities, kinda like she was meant for humans to have… I think she is the most complex, but yet simple, soft energy for healing and tuned in for our growth. I am so grateful to be alive at this time and be present in witnessing the shift she is making on our planet.

Go forth, Go Cannabis…
