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.
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.
Like many parts of the US, cannabis is criminalized and carries ridiculous penalties for possession. I’m by no means encouraging people to risk traveling with cannabis. But I will speak on my experiences. I’d like to preface this by saying it’s important to do your own research and make the best and most safe decision for you!
Sunday is the only day of the week that everyone can agree is sacred. Whether you attend church, masque, fast or feed the homeless, Sunday is the day we take care to replenish the spirit, whether it’s through acts of selflessness or self-care.
Because I usually spend the day running errands early in the day, buying flowers or grocery shopping for the week, I tend to listen to Sunday sermon broadcasts on the radio. My understanding is that even though I don’t practice a particular religion, the word is still a word no less. And every so often I find myself pleasantly surprised at just how divine spiritual texts are in their essence.
The most recent sermon I tuned into focused on Revelations 22:2. It reads:
We are constantly working to raise the collective consciousness around cannabis.
