Are you a Ganja Goddess?? Cannabis cultivation and medicinal use can be traced as far back as 12,000 years ago!! WHOA right!? It's only been in our most recent history however that the cultivation and use of cannabis has been stigmatized and deemed as dangerous and thus illegal... we are in the dawn of a new awakening and FINALLY we are recognizing all of the amazing health and economical benefits that this plant offers. From womens health, pain management, easing anxiety disorders and sooooo much more cannabis is rightfully taking its proper place on the stage as a sought after means to whole body wellness. Women in particular have always had a very prominent role in the history of cannabis. As caregivers and healers we see beyond the stigmas... we see an opportunity to naturally care, heal and connect. Women in the cannabis industry are paving a path to an entirely new world of business opportunities and these women need to be applauded. They are breaking down barriers, kicking ass and taking names. Tag your ganja goddesses and let's take a moment to acknowledge all that they do and all that they will achieve in this admirable and growing industry!! #✌❤😊 #hyggehippie#hyggehippieliving

O’ Canada... the land of the legal greennnn🍃🇨🇦💓
let me introduce you to a special girl, maryjane. I use cannabis for a wide variety of reasons. firstly, I suffer from awful menstrual cramps and have had lower back pain for years, as well as TMD so my jaw is always in pain. cannabis—more specifically—medicinal cannabis, with high CBD content helps me manage my pain effectively and naturally. another reason why I feel drawn to cannabis is for the spirituality component intertwined with the qualities of the plant, where you can enter a dimension that you normally do not have access to. in this place you can be still, and you can reflect honestly on your thoughts and feelings towards situations in your life.
cannabis is such a beautiful flower, and it saddens me to still see such a large stigma around cannabis use. even if you don’t smoke yourself or understand the significance of the benefits of legalization & decriminalization—it is still important to educate yourself on the medicinal and traditional usages of the plant. from cancer patients experiencing nausea, to seizure disorders such as epilepsy, cannabis truly does treat a wide range of ailments.
I like to consider myself as a cannabis activist, someone who has educated themselves on the complex knowledge of cannabis. with happiness I know I still have so much more to learn. so much more to learn about this existence in general.
plus plus (hella bonus points) cannabis is such a beautiful plant, and did you know all cannabis nugs are female? 😍👑🌱🍁💨
BIG NEWS! 🇨🇦Today Canada is making history. They have officially legalized adult use Cannabis nationwide. 🇨🇦The 2nd country in the world to do so (behind Uruguay). Tap the link in our bio to read more about what this means. 🇨🇦
Brief Canadian Cannabis History:
1923: Cannabis was banned in Canada
1938: Hemp banned as part of the Opium and Narcotic Drug Act
1998: Commercial Hemp production is legalized
2001: Marihuana for Medical Access Regulations passed making dried cannabis available for medical use
Oct 17, 2018: Cannabis is legal nationwide for recreational use.
Congrats Canada on your forward thinking. Next steps for us in the US is to get the new Farm Bill passed which would legalize Hemp nationwide. Baby steps, baby steps! 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

This first boomerang is from today’s IG story where I discuss and celebrate the legalization of Cannabis in Canada.
My crying is not related to being an enthusiastic pot user... In my IG story I explain how THC does not seem to work well with my brain which I believe is predisposed to mental illness.
Rather, the crying is from sharing my journey up until now of how I developed my sense of self in relation to both using and abstaining from drugs.
In this teary-eyed moment, I reflect on how I compromised my journey of sobriety back in 2015-16 to use amphetamines in lieu of wanting to kill myself. At the time I thought the recreational use of speed/MDA was just a symptom of my depression and sad habits, but in retrospect I think of it more as the last resort life-support I needed to be reminded of feeling a little bit alive. Please understand that I am NOT advocating drug use to self medicate your depression. I was extremely lost and betting against my odds by using ambiguous substances that easily could have been laced with my death-sentence.
I am not sad in this image. At all. I am overwhelmingly grateful.
Sometime in my 2015-16 depression, riddled with suicidal thoughts, with little care in the world - I was met with the unique opportunity to use Psilocybin (magic mushrooms) out in the beautiful west coast mountains. I’m not sure WHAT specifically happened, but coming out of that psychedelic trip kickstarted a necessary “re-set” in my brain that I believe saved me from myself. I didn’t feel INSTANTLY healed. It just gave me a more compassionate perspective on the situation I was still in. Recovering from that depression went on for another year or so... I continued mindful use of psilocybin throughout the process and I believe it is a tool that saved my life.
What does this have to do with cannabis legalization?
For many many MANY folks, Cannabis serves them the way Psilocybin serves me. This is an amazing time to engage in thoughtful dialogue about responsible drug use. About mental illness and resources to find help. In community support or from the grace of a plant medicine. I am excited and curious about what will come next and how it can serve us

Happy Legalization Day Canada🇨🇦
It is so surreal to me to be experiencing the rise of cannabis these last couple years.
Cannabis users used to be stereotyped and judged and I am so grate things are changing. People are starting to understanding all the amazing things this plant can do!
My cannabis story:
I use to smoke cannabis here and there as a teen - more to experiment. It got me pretty high most of the time and I didn’t quite like the feeling of it.
I got reintroduced to it by a boyfriend in my early 20’s. He smoked regularly but also was educated as to what he was buying and knew a lot about strains and what they did.
I started using cannabis more regularly and started to enjoy it. It made sex feel super good, food taste amazing and brought me more presence of self.
Cannabis has aided me in many different ways in my life. There were times when I was depressed, there were times where I was filled with anxiety and there were times when I needed to tap into my creativity – and cannabis helped me with all of that.
Cannabis can help people in so many different ways. The body was made to have this plant in it. It can help you with anxiety, depression, achieving better orgasms, bringing more presence into your life, assist you with being in the moment, pain, inflammation and SO MUCH MORE. It truly is a miracle plant💚
Canada now has the whole world’s eyes on it and we all wait to see what the result of legalizing this plant will be on a country. What are your thoughts are you excited for this? Do you think it’s a good idea?

Congratulations to Canada for legalizing marijuana today! .
This is a major step in ending prohibition of a simple, healing plant. The world is waking up. False, fear based propaganda loses its power in an age of transparency and free knowledge. We are free beings who should be able to choose how we enjoy our life. Don’t listen to grumpy old politicians who do not have your freedom in mind. The war on drugs was always used to gain political power. It was never in your best interest or humanity’s best interest. I grew up thinking I lived in the land of the free, but if my country makes a simple plant illegal, I do not live in a free country. Plain and simple.
Don’t be a sheep. Freedom is your birthright. Think for yourself. Experience life. Choose freedom. #micdrop

If I could, I’d be celebrating Canada’s cannabis legalization with a joint in a canoe with my dog. Instead, I’m just posting a photo about it. Congratulation for real, Canada. It’s crazy to think that this industry is really just getting started! 🇨🇦 #canadalegalization#cannabiscommunity#modernstoner
