Fellow humans…..how are you doing? Here we are in an unprecedented, in our lifetime anyway, situation. It’s been fascinating to notice /observe the ways we are adapting and surviving. It is times like this when I do have hope for us as a species, because even though we’re in some ways in a mess of our own making, we have the capacity to figure it out. However, we do need to find ways to manage the pervasive underlying stress, and this is where cannabis can truly help. Whether you prefer CBD only or like the full on THC experience, the compounds in cannabis are perfect for stress relief. If you’re a fairly hyper person, right now a strong Sativa dominant strain might not be your best bet. Cannabis terpenes have a huge effect on how the plant will affect you, so for stress relief, try more Indica dominant strains high in  Linalool, Caryophellene, Myrcene, Humulene and others for calming, anti-inflammatory, and sedative effects. If you enjoy CBD products go ahead and up those miligrams; the nice thing about CBD is even tho you won’t get all of the benefits of THC and other cannabinoids, if you need more take it as you won’t get too high. Please take a look at my cookbooks, “EveryDayMaryJ” (available at www.maryjwhite.com) or “The CBD Cookbook for Beginners”, on Amazon.  I also have a ton of cooking videos on YouTube; https://www.youtube.com/user/maryjwhite1/videos?view_as=subscriber. I want you to be as healthy and happy as possible, not just during a pandemic but all the time. Cannabis is great medicine, and like I always say it’s not about getting high, it’s about getting well. If you do enjoy the high though….now’s the perfect time! Please take care of yourselves, make some fun cannabis treats, and remember to chill. With love    Mary
