Research proving the importance of this plant medicine:
Lest I be thought a naive advocate of cannabis for any purpose (because I’ve reposted a few good articles I’ve found), I’d like to share two thoughts on limits, one my own limits, and a post by the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) – http://www.mpp.org).
Recently, because I’m healing (or attempting to heal) from MKULTRA mind control, I designed a notebook/journal specifically for my needs, including daily check sheets in which I track numerous small things that I typically lose track of: how much sleep I get, my dreams, how I feel from day to day, whether I remember my supplements, and much more, including ideas I think are break-throughs, which I also typically “forget” or am controlled to forget – who knows, unless I get more serious about working to track them! (I’ve described the notebook/journal and its use more completely on my ParadigmSalon site: http://paradigmsalon.net/2014/09/29/saved-by-my-journalnotebook/
One of the items I track is when and how often I use cannabis. I have a highly sensitive system and believe cannabis (at least much of what’s locally available) is detrimental to my logical, rational mind’s functioning; therefore, I do not use it when driving, socializing, or doing daily chores. I do find, though, that it is excellent medicine for solving problems, for instance, in meditation and in writing, so I limit my use to those times or similar times when a “wandering,” relaxed mind is useful. And I have committed to writing in my journal every single time I have a hit. That way I know how well I’m sticking to my commitment, and the tracking practice is a good inhibitor, making me as responsible as I think I should be.
Recently, when Colorado legalized marijuana, a reporter made the news when she overindulged in a pot brownie. The Marijuana Policy Project (http://www.mpp.org) today posted a blog that links to a site called “Consume Responsibly” (http://www.consumeresponsibly.org). There is a lot of good information there, and I hope folks will check it out and pass it on.
