In my teaching cooking with cannabis one thing continues to stand out. Lots of people seem to be afraid of the high. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve talked to folks about the healing properties of cannabis, and their main question is what about the high? Will I jump off a building/go crazy/eat the cat/ drool? Well, of course not, but some full grown intelligent humans remain scared of the pot. I blame prohibition; years of no or wrong information have left confusion in their wake. Now many of these same folks, because doctors are god, will take opioids and all the weird over the counter stuff, in spite of the side effects and a nasty high. I took pain meds for years, and let me tell you, that isn’t about euphoria. I found pills to be depressing and not healing at all, but cannabis – seriously great. And if you get a little goofy, or happy, or horny – isn’t that WAY better than being depressed and sad? So lose the pills and the over the counter stuff; you are an intelligent and brave individual…. try cannabis!!
