Cannabis and Spirituality 005: Strengthening your let go muscle

Many of us are slowly coming to the realization that because we carry the weight of our emotional baggage, trauma, our limited perceptions of our reality based on school systems, religious systems, what we’ve learned from family and relationships that we’ve created this inevitable need to unpack.

A need to find balance.

The flower of the female cannabis plant unlocks the yin, the receptive energy in all of us. In doing so, it allows us to feel more deeply connected to nature, share more authentic exchanges between one another and commune with different aspects of ourselves.

However, this is not how we have been taught to navigate the physical world. Instead, we’ve adopted the mindset of the conqueror on a conquest, the masculine yang energy, always focusing our attention on what we need more of: more wealth, possessions, status. Never focusing on what it is we could be letting go.

The let go muscle is about removing the need to control every moment of our human experience.

The let go muscle is about giving yourself permission to lay it all down.

The let go muscle is about learning how to trust yourself that you’ll be resilient.

It's not an edible and it's not always a tincture: Here's what you need to know about sublinguals

It's not an edible and it's not always a tincture: Here's what you need to know about sublinguals

Onset times are probably one of the most important things to consider when consuming cannabis and yet not enough conversation is happening around sublinguals. While cannabis is often consumed to amplify a moment in time, to enjoy the fullness of living in the present, or to relieve some immediate discomfort, the response time can sometimes take longer than we need.

Sublinguals are fast acting without affecting the respiratory system and provide measured dosage without the delayed, prolonged and intensified effects of edibles. Sublingual administration is far more efficient than smoking. You can think of bioavailability as efficiency. Sublinguals are an alternative ingestible form of cannabis. The effects of a 2.5 mg sublingual are NOT the same as a 2.5 mg edible.

How the term "recreational" is often misused in cannabis conversation

How the term "recreational" is often misused in cannabis conversation

Recreation is usually used to emphasize an act of leisure, relaxation, fun, enjoyment, entertainment, amusement. But are these not all things that in some way contribute to good health? When we think about the diseases that invade the body, we have to understand the root cause of those diseases: which is the physical equivalent of some spiritual, emotional or mental imbalance that influences the body. Cannabis is a wellness tool, a healing herb, that extends beyond the self-depreciating labels that limit us to our productivity and dismisses everything outside of that as “recreational” considering the most widely accepted understanding of the term. I invite you to dive deeper to harness your creativity, ability to outgrow old ways of thinking and being to be renewed, to redefine cannabis on your terms and be present and intentional in creating your relationship to cannabis, whether for it medicinal properties or creative expression.
