Cannabis Wisdom and the Resilient Human – Part IV

Breakthrough

How long are we going to blindly accept the guiding principles and beliefs inherent to the North American Matrix when they do nothing but divide us internally and with others? Musician, Taj Majal, once suggested that we take, "a giant step outside our mind." I agree.

Cannabis Reprimand and Reality

evil weed

With so much 'pie in the sky' about cannabis it makes sense that someone would revive Reefer Madness to even the score. That said, much of the revival of evil cannabis misses the mark and some of it is true. Read more »

Cannabis Use Disorder: The Dark Side

Cannabis product

There are two sides to every story, including for cannabis. Cannabis Use Disorder speaks not to the substance but to someone's propensity to over-consume. This is also the case for food, exercise, sex, work alcohol, accumulating things, Internet use, pharmaceutical drugs, cannabis, gambling, etc. We have only ourselves to examine when we misuse a substance or process because it likely masks one of our unidentified and unaddressed personal issues.

The Anxiety Epidemic, Antidepressants, and CBD Part III

Woke

This is the final of the Anxiety Epidemic series. The way I see it is that the antidote to anxiety is having a genuine sense of being 'connected' first to myself and to something greater than myself, at the same time.

The Addictive Society and Cannabis Part III

Finding Truth

The addictive system of the addictive society, discussed in Parts I and II, is ubiquitous; pure nature provides the only respite. Not only is this system everywhere in the modern world but it is also unlikely to become non-addictive any time soon. We can source our true identity from the inside-out, shedding vestiges of the external forces of the world telling us what we want and need to be happy. This is wellbeing beyond the hype.

The Addictive Society and Cannabis Part II

The Addictive Society

In the end, it’s practically impossible NOT to buy-in to the addictive system (AKA the Matrix) at some point in our lives, or in one way or another. All around us, it can easily hijack how we think, feel and behave. Awareness is the beginning to having a choice. Read more »

The Addictive Society and Cannabis
