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!!
Hasn’t this been a year? I don’t know about you all, but my life has gone through some wonderful, painful, and epic changes. I truly feel that our friend cannabis absolutely helped me through the worst of it; whether emotional angst or weird body stuff, cannabis got me through. And the more I use cannabis and learn about its healing properties the more I understand the importance of this ancient healing plant. I’m absolutely grateful for this, as well as being grateful for you. I don’t want to be trite, but to all of you who have come to a Cooking with Cannabis class, asked me canna questions on FB, or needed input on CBD – thanks! To be able to help even a little, to see someone get off all those pills, to see a puppy calm and healed – that’s all down to the goodness of cannabis, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for letting me help just a little. So very grateful for all of you!!
I try to not continually wax poetic about cannabis, but damn, the stuff is the BEST. I was talking to a friend today who has taken all the pills but is still wondering how to get better. It hurts my heart to run into so many people who have physical problems that could be easily solved with cannabis, but the years of prohibition and false information have left a lot of people just plain scared of pot. I have to say stop being scared – this is truly the best natural medicine I have ever found. I too was taking all the pills and doing everything I could to stop the pain. This was not always to healthy effect, I might add. I actually used to have a 3 drug limit; I had to try and not go above three different types of medicine to relieve my pain. Now, with wonderful lovely cannabis I have no pain, move well, and am (almost always) calm and happy. I have to reiterate, lose the pills and try cannabis – you’ll get well!!
