Hellooooo June

Happy June my darlings, and happy almost summer. Here in Seattle it’s been a really chilly, wet spring, and I’m excited for some damn sun! I’m also excited for my cannabis babies this year as I’m growing some beautiful cultivars. But it’s been a very rough few weeks, and months, and ok years, and a lot of us are having a truly hard time. I was talking to my oldest the other day and he was expressing how concerned he is for his kids; gun violence, lack of safety, the pandemic, climate disasters, etc. etc. As a parent how do you reassure your kids that’s it’s going to be ok, when in reality who the hell knows? Obviously cannabis can be a great help, not only for anxiety, but for sleep, mental health, all kinds of stuff. But aside from telling your kids to stay high, which isn’t a solution, how do we give them positivity in this time of worldwide disturbance? My kid and I decided that the Buddhist saying “find joy in a world of sadness” is most appropriate. There’s absolutely no value in carrying worry around; I feel it’s just more negativity. I truly do feel that no matter what is going on, we can always find joy in this still beautiful incredible world. When you get overwhelmed, try a high CBD cannabis cultivar, get outside, take a deep breath, listen to the birds…..You know what I’m saying. Cannabis will help us through this absurd time, and we can help each other as well. Take care my darlings, and keep trying to get happy.

Happy May my wonderful humans! Don’t know about you, but it’s taken me a while to get into spring this year. Partly of course because the weather  here in Washington has been way colder than usual, and it’s just now starting to get warm. But with all the flowers and gorgeous bright green leaves everywhere, I’m starting to feel like hibernation is over and the greening can commence. The other day I picked up my cannabis clones for this year, and I let them know it’s going to take a minute to get used to the bracing temps, but they seem ready to go. Honestly, I’m so grateful and glad that I can grown my own medicine; it’s one of the most empowering things I know, to be able to take excellent care of your self with a plant. Granted, every state with recreational cannabis has different rules, and Washington is notoriously picky, but I’m still happy that I can grow my medicine with no concerns about legality. In this state one does need a medical card to grow, but for me it’s totally worth it. Plus there’s a cosmic/spiritual thing that happens when you’re growing cannabis; those of you who’ve had that experience will know what I mean. To celebrate the plant, the recipe below is great for Mother’s Day, but it’s also fine whenever you want something delightful for dessert. If you don’t want it medicated just leave out the tincture, it’s still delicious.

                                    GREEN P’NUT BUTTER MOUSSE

This is what happens when you have some heavy cream around, you smoke an energizing Sativa hybrid, and get the urge for something sweet. You can leave out the THC tincture, but trust me, it’s worth it! For 4 servings, you’ll need:

1 C. cold heavy cream (get the highest butter fat content you can – 40% is ideal)

3 Tb. THC tincture

¼ C. crunchy peanut butter; please buy the good stuff, not the stuff with sugar!

¼ C. white chocolate chips – chopped

¼ C. lightly salted shelled peanuts – chopped

½ tsp. cornstarch

1 tsp. vanilla

3Tb. powdered sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon, large pinch salt – both optional but good

For the best result, make sure your mixing bowl and beaters are really well chilled. Pour the cream into your cold mixing bowl and start to mix on low. With the beaters going, add the tincture, cornstarch, vanilla, sugar, cinnamon and salt, if using. When the mixture is about halfway to whipped, add the peanut butter and about half of the chips and peanuts. Whip this till firm but still pillowy; be careful not to let it break or approach the butter stage. Get this into 4 cute glasses or dessert bowls and sprinkle the rest of the peanuts and chocolate chips over. Garnish with mint and feel like the dessert expert!

Huge Change

Recently I had to go to the emergency room for some internal weirdness. All is well now and things are ok, but when I got home (after 7 hours of looking at cute docs and me in my sexy hospital gown) I had a big damn realization. I need to be very aware of my internal workings because of scar tissue from past surgeries, etc. The (totally hot) doc asked me if I needed anything for pain and I said no. During the course of my stay he asked me probably four times if I needed anything for pain and I kept saying no. THIS IS A MIRACLE! I didn’t even realize I had done that till I got home and then I went….. damn. Historically I’ve been all about the pills, to the point of thinking about them and wanting them all damn day. I used to have a 3 drug rule when partying! Now thanks to cannabis I’m almost always pain free, I don’t need nasty pharmaceuticals, and I never look in people’s medicine cabinets anymore. Yes, I’ve done that – never took anything, but I can totally see how the pill thing can get out of control. With cannabis, I’m productive and happy and waaaay more chill. So now that things are opening up, now that we can start to think about seeing each other again, I just have to say THANK YOU to cannabis. No more pills, no more weirdness, just happy healthy healing. WAHOO!

Cannabis = Bye Bye Pillz!

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!!
