The Olympics recently ended as I type this in early March of 2018.
I only say that for the sake of posterity because some of y’all may be seeing this for the first time in late 2019 or July of 2020.
The days when all this silliness is over.
You see…the truth of TODAY is that anything “cannabis” (shhhhhh…don’t say that too loud)…is kinda stigma-taboo-stoner’ish-don’t tell my mom I do this kinda thing.
But it’s also the TIME I live in here in early March of 2018.
It’s a wild time lemme tell ya…
Some states say it’s ok to not only smoke weed but you can even grow your very own little and not-so-secret garden. If you know what I mean…
And others…well…others…let’s just say that “Mary Juana” is pretty much the equivalent of the old school ‘Scarlett Letter’…only it’s not scarlett it’s green.
Hell and let’s not glide by the hoopla that the US Attorney General just set in motion last month. Don’t EEEVVVENNNN get me started.
It’s a funny time.
And you know what’s even funnier. Not funny ha-ha but more funny-peculiar.
That this plant is so misunderstood by some of the most…a-hem (clears throat sound)…intelligent folks I know.
Like just last week up in Austin I had a convo with this wicked smart lady friend and she was just so adamant that anything having to do with the word “cannabis” is taboo. In fact she even went on to say that I was essentially a drug dealer and I must say that that statement ruffled my feathers a bit.
Everyone knows I’m an RN turned entrepreneur and what we do here at Wellness Project RX is offer to humanity a true alternative to achieve a state of “super wellness”. And yeah…we are fans of *CBD as a legit alternative.
She also asked me to “convince” her that cannabis is anything BUT a Cheech and Chong, old school stigma.
And that’s when the voice of reason entered the convo b/c I shared that my job isn’t to convince folks. I went on that it’s our individual responsibility as informed, intelligent Americans to inform and empower ourselves with knowledge IF we feel the need to do so.
And especially even more so when the only opinion we have around a topic is decades old and based on comedic movies or 1970’s Woodstock’ish memories.
So why did I mention the Olympics at the onset of this scribe?
Because this article written goes on to cite references as related to THC and CBD and Olympic athletes.
So to my future self…on the day maybe 2…3…or 5 years from now when we look back at ignorance…dis-empowered “thinkers”…old school stigmas and basic misunderstanding remember you heard it here first.
Cannabis. Is. Here. To. Stay.
Whether one likes it or not.
And if you want a little extra “power” be sure to go to our store and use the code “RICKY” for 10% off AND free shipping. My anxiety laden days are a thing of the past since I started a daily *CBD regimen (the gelcaps ROCK!!!)
Go ahead…be empowered.
