The Grass is Greener

January 22, 2019

On this side of the country, the west coast, we've been appreciating the quality of BC buds for a very longgg time. The quality of air, soil, water has been rich & clean during these years. I took little to no interest in weed growing up in Ontario. Perhaps because the weed had not much of a buzz to it, tasted meh and I had no idea what the big deal was. I was indifferent to it. Whereas coming out west I first puffed on Salt Spring island retreat during pregnancy. The Wicca felt pot to be good for their babies no problem. I trusted my gut & shared a joint with the woman of the cabin, as a meditative way to relax in my body while I grew my baby. 

Second time I puffed, a year later, I was out on Vancouver Island's west coast at a rainbow gathering, as a single mom, summer of 1995. While my little one snoozed in my arms on the sunshiny beach, a circle of gentle guitar and soft philosophical discussion nestled round us. The incredible artist, Luke Brown, brought out the greenest of the dankest BC bud. Appearing piled up in a magical glass pipe, ready for take off. 

As a travelling mother at the time, I am forever grateful for this inhalation that went straight to my toes and made them tingle with circulating relief. I knew 'weed is good' in that moment. 

I knew that weed is sacred and healing. 

The grass is greener here. Not that Ontario doesn't deserve good weed, au contraire. 

The majority of farmers of cannabis here have had a dedication to keeping the plant's beneficial properties intact and honouring cannabis capabilities. 

Our environment here has had more nature in it probably since the late 1800s.

I think this makes all the difference in how we can grow and connect with the plant. 


Celestially Sincere,
