Credible Cannabis Education

Episode 14. Click the arrow on the player above to listen now. Listening time 05 minutes 35 seconds.

If you’re a family caregiver chances are you spend a lot of your time between cargiving duties online.

For me, the Internet was a place to get away from the day-to-day care provider grind as time allowed.

Back then Green Flower Media wasn’t around as a go to resource for quality marijuana (aka cannabis) educational content. A lot has changed in the past several years.

Now as cannabis shifts more into the mainstream of our lives and culture the need for credible (as in no bullshit) information has arrived. Especially here in Ohio.

Green Flower is mission driven to help everyone on the planet with an Internet connection learn about cannabis. And they deliver on that promise with both free and paid content in a big way.

Here are just a few of the many articles worthy of your attention:

Mastermind Hotseat Q&A

Episode 07. Click the arrow on the player above to listen now. Listening time 11 minutes 54 seconds.

Every week I get to meet-up with a few Texas friends and colleagues for a roundtable mastermind call.

We cover a lot of topics and offer input, opinion, questions, answers, and ideas for each other as we each take a turn in the virtual hotseat.

When my turn came around on a recent session I asked everyone to come up with a question about marijuana.

My mastermind partners Melodie, Tara, and Kramer all willingly came up with a great question.

No. They’re not cannabis users but they all can likely be counted with the 60% of US citizens that feel marijuana should be legal for adults or the 85% who believe people should have legal access for medical reasons.

Their questions may be your questions too. Listen in. Let me know.

If you are attached to Texas in any way and want to be a part of the adult cannabis conversations going on there then TexasNORML.org and TexasMarijuanaPolicy.org are good places to start.

And of course no Texas conversation about marijuana would be complete without a last word from a legendary native son…

The biggest killer on the planet is stress and I still think the best medicine is and always has been cannabis.” – Willie Nelson

Bonnie’s Ohio Medical Marijuana Rant

When the holidays come (and they will) stress can often be felt at maximum intensity levels.

Family and friends can certainly magnify the stress but for those who live life in the margins being alone can be devastatingly depressive.

On Thanksgiving Day I was grateful and fortunate to share a holiday meal and social time with those I love and care about.

And yes. The smoking lamp was lit.

Listen in as Bonnie M. tells us what she thinks as a career medical professional about medical marijuana now being legal in Ohio.

Intention

Episode 05. Click the arrow on the player above to listen now. Listening time 06 minutes 56 seconds.

What is your reason for wanting to use cannabis? What do you want to happen? What don’t you want to happen?

When it comes to choosing to use marijuana or not those are important questions to get clear answers for from yourself.

You’re the only one who can answer. Your answers are also the only ones that count.

If you’ve never used cannabis, or it has been a long time since you last used it, get crystal clear on your own “why”.

And if you are already a marijuana user what exactly is your “why”?

Something that may help you figure this out is to grab a pen and a piece of paper and write out your personal reasons.

Also consider the possibility of talking with someone close to you about your “why” if that is an option and talking makes sense for you.

For another perspective check out this personal story and short video by Mandee Lee at Green Flower Media about how to use cannabis with intention.

Endocannabinoid Self-Care

Episode 03. Click the arrow on the player above to listen now. Listening time 08 minutes 04 seconds.

What if marijuana (cannabis) isn’t something that addicts and kills people like it’s DEA Schedule I neighbor heroin?

What if instead marijuana actually contributes health and wellness benefits to the human body safely?

And what if cannabis actually interacts with a natural system already at work in all of our bodies that most doctors and medical professionals have never heard of?

Enter the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and something often referred to as the entourage effect of whole plant cannabis medicine.

As a family caregiver self-care is essential. Every aspect of your mental health and physical well being come into play. But you already knew that didn’t you.

Meanwhile here are 11 facts about the ECS you may not know.
