Cannabis is medicine for so many people, including me.

It was until after I had my children that I started to use cannabis with intention. Panic attacks from hell Since I was a child I’ve suffered from generalized anxiety and panic …

In beginners guide, parenting, Reviews by Weed MamaLeave a Comment

Ah yes, laundry mountain, that thing that happens when you try to fit other things into your life, like working or anything really. Housework is something I despise, more than that I resent it for taking up my valuable time.

Art is therapy and cannabis can help

In Cannabis, Mental Health, Womens Health by Weed MamaLeave a Comment

Spotify sent me a song suggestion called “The right to destroy myself” a haunting piece of music. It made me think about that feeling, when we need to fall apart. Those difficult times in our life when we have a crisis of self, a nervous breakdown but that’s exactly what we need. It’s how we evolve.
