Are you skeptical when you hear cannabis is medicine? So was I but I’m not anymore and here’s why…

In Cannabis, education, Mental Health, Womens Healthby Weed MamaLeave a Comment

Cannabis is medicine for so many people, including me. However I never used to think that way, even though I’ve used cannabis since I was a teenager, it never occurred to me to use it medicinally, I just smoked weed and got high. 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 …

Great White Shark a Cannabis cultivar for Housework

In beginners guide, parenting, Reviewsby 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. Alas, I can’t hire a housekeeper so it’s on me to do what we all have to do unless we want to embrace Oscar the Grouch’s lifestyle choice and live inside a garbage can. So …

A decadent chocolate with just enough THC to let you feel as though you’re floating on clouds. At first I cut them in …

Art is therapy and cannabis can help

In Cannabis, Mental Health, Womens Healthby 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. Like the tower card in tarot, we tear down our walls and get back to the foundation to build …

Can you mix wine and weed?

In educationby Weed MamaLeave a Comment

This summer I took a trip to Oliver BC, wine country and visited plenty (7 l think) wineries.

However each winery offers tasting and that’s where I discovered the magic of wineries. I tasted all the Pinot’s, Merlot’s and Rieslings I could and felt swept away in the stunning …

In parenting, Womens Healthby Weed MamaLeave a Comment

When I was pregnant with my daughter I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety/panic disorder by Dr. Misry (I shit you not) who looked very bored and followed her quick diagnosis with a suggestion that I buy her book.
