THE MELDING OF NATURE
IT’S HARVEST TIME
It’s harvest time! Cannabis, like coffee, tea and wine, is different every season. The elements involved in growing any of these plants are different every year. The soil, the rain, the sun, the pests, the pollination, the microbes; all are nature's ingredients and like good ol' home cooking - there are infinite variations on the recipe. Each years harvest, be it a vineyard full of grapes, a sea of green cannabis or an old tea forest, is different, unique, rare and brings the robust joy and excitement of new experience.
CERTAIN REGIONS ARE WELL SUITED FOR PRODUCING QUALITY OUTDOOR CANNABIS
Just like when growing wine, coffee and tea, certain parts of the world are well suited for producing quality cannabis. In the interest of conserving the authenticity of traditional quality, many of these regions are protected by the master growers who have cultivated for generations. The rituals associated with wine, tea and coffee have been refined and practiced with an appreciation for their beauty, honor, heritage, culture, the farms and their growers. Cannabis has the resume to compete with any of them.
WHEN WE FIND THE “RIGHT” STRAIN
Finding the “right” strain of cannabis with the perfect ratio of cannabinoids such as CBD, THC, CBN, CBG, etc, allows one to truly unlock the power of medicinal cannabis. This is the moment cannabis evangelists are made! However, when we head back to the dispensary to purchase the same thing, it often isn’t available. Everyone knows about the variables associated with wine, coffee and tea. But the frustration with cannabis’ variations is new to many.
Forced to spend the last 90+ years in hiding, cannabis’ vast history, its richness, value, prestige, and unique qualities are relatively unknown to a large uneducated audience. As the stigmas of the past 90 years disappear, it will take its place among the age old herbs of wisdom. The increase in demand, caused by the prestige of the product and its natural healing properties, will seriously increase our appreciation for cannabis, and by extension its availability.
WATER SOLUBLE CBD PRODUCTS
Water soluble CBD products are a new introduction to the cannabis industry. We were all taught that oil and water don’t mix. With nanotechnology, sound waves break down CBD clusters into micro-sized particles. When the CBD oil is broken down into tiny particles, CBD dissolves and blends beautifully with the water. The benefit of water soluble CBD is the high rate of absorption by the body. When water soluble CBD products such as teas and coffees enter the system, the body absorbs more of the CBD and loses less to the digestive tract, giving you bang for your buck.
MINDFULNESS HASN’T GENERALLY BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH CANNABIS
Cannabis has often been associated with people getting high rather than getting centered. Mindfulness is not generally associated with cannabis for most people. And yet for thousands of years this herb has been used as a medicine and spiritual aide for a balanced life. The wisdom of the herb has been passed down through the ages and utilized for rituals of birth, spirituality, wellness, self-realization, death and transcendence. There’s a renaissance going on and we’re all invited to join in.
