A Prague pot poem

Cannabis is green.

It can help with some pretty serious illnesses.

It can be abused, misused and wasted.

Smoking pot might make you a cliché.

Using cannabis will make you seem like a reformed rapist in the eyes of the ignorant.

Not being a stoner cliché will help change the ignorant buffalo’s opinion of cannabis.

Cannabis is an amazing tonic for older people. It brings down natural inflammation and helps repair worn out old bodies.

Cannabis kills stress, which is lucky because stress kills people.

Cannabis is a gift from Mother Nature.

Cannabis might stop our species from fossil fuel driving our civilization off the cliff.

Did you see the might in the last sentence? Might? Even with cannabis and a reconnection to the natural world, we might be goosed anyway.

Cannabis is to human consciousness, as lobbyists are to the political system. Cannabis is a message from Mother Nature. Dude, chill and stop trying to kill the planet. Find peace with each other. Work to extinguish hate and ignorance.

Cannabis is an intoxicant that can make you smile and think as it regulates your nervous and endocannabinoid systems.

If you take a look at the world, a little more thinking is probably a good thing.

There is a reason ancient cultures worshiped pot.

We can and should cooperate, there is a bigger picture reason. Until we exercise our rights, the corporate system will try to remove them.

Try to fall in love, every day.

Love and laughter

The cannabis religion

cannabis religion

Sheltered from the last of the bleak winter that folds around the old, wood built cabin that passes for their church, these cannabis evangelicals are in surprisingly good humor. Each Tuesday they meet and discuss their faith. Sometimes traveling miles so they can sit and contemplate life from within the warm embrace of their church. Recently the congregation has grown, they are now looking for a larger chapel to help them spread the word. Due to the persecution they get from non believers, the church has remained a closely guarded secret.

The familiar, loving experience that is a visit to their weekly service, stands in stark contrast to the prohibition horror stories each member has had to endure. They have all, quite literally suffered for their faith. Myself and about 30 other people take our seats when the pastor moves to the raised oak pulpit. Lily has been the head of this group for more than 25 years. She is a gentle, dignified looking woman in her middle age. As she beams down on us all, you can feel the room tuning into her frequency.

“Welcome everyone, I hope we don’t have any members left stranded out there in the blizzard”. Lily went on to tell us about the role she sees for the church, as well as sharing wisdom and humor. The church is to be an example of compassion and evolution she said. We are here to share experiences, to embrace ourselves and the wider community. She reminded us that this is our one and only known chance to live and celebrate the here and now. All of creation is a sacred gift for us to enjoy. We must rediscover sharing and cooperation if we are going to  build the perfect society which allows both us and the natural world to thrive.

We begin with ourselves. Finding out who we really are is a sacrament. Trying to live by the standards that Mother Nature has given us is a fundamental goal. In short, trying to be the best version of ourselves. Once we understand who we are and what direction we would most prefer our lives to take, we get on with it. Make it happen and help those around you that want the same thing. It is your religious duty to be in a constant state of learning. We are here to evolve. You have to judge your actions based on the entire consequences of those actions. We are part of the problem until we become conscious enough to do our part to promote a better society.

She spoke at length about our duty to be authentic. Working together is more fun. Sitting in a grey, work cubical and punching things into a computer is not the full expression of humanity. It is a perversion. We were not meant to be seven billion strangers on the planet. We are family, Asian cousins, Indian uncles and European aunts. At our root, we are all from the same species, sharing the same bit of rock hurtling through infinite space and time. The non believers that oppress us believe that they are outside of nature and are masters of it. This is the same situation as when a small child throws a temper tantrum at its mother because she will not let the child play in the busy street. We are from nature, we are nature and it is time to become a more natural society. We have amazing technology and intelligence, so lets start channeling that smarts into practical things that can save the planet. Modern society is sick. Consumerism has not turned out to be anything other than a business scam to pollute the planet while benefiting only a handful of sociopaths.

The vision Lily has for society is beautiful. I don’t know if it was the ideals or the wicked white widow that made me tune into the church. All I know is that I will be attending next Tuesdays gathering. As we become adults there is a certain amount of disappointment that comes with growing up. Things keep changing. Those golden yesterdays will fade whether we like it or not and in the end, the only thing we really ever have is the present moment. Look around you, this is it. The perspective we choose to view this moment with however, is up to us. Looking up at Lily I choose to see the world as a smile. I don’t know how practical this religion is, but I sure hope it catches on.

Time

Pot poem

Smoke curls up and moves towards the heavens.

Senses melting into the environment.

Warmth, fun and focus.

It is time to simply be.

Welcome in mother nature.

Let the plant’s message of peace and love fuse with my own thoughts of harmony.

There is more to life than meets the eye.

We are not robots, our journey home should be filled with laughter.

Life is to be celebrated,  to smile at the sun with our closed eyes.

Welcome in mother nature, you have been sorely missed.

Cannabis treats cancer

Cannabis cancer

Our health is positively affected by consuming cannabis! Who said life was all bad??

The high we get from pot is a by-product of when cannabis is in your nervous system repairing normal damage that we all have. Cannabis is made up of cannabinoids and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Both have different roles to play within our nervous system but together they have been shown to cure severe forms of epilepsy and  Crohn’s disease. Ask a Crohn’s Disease sufferer if they think pot should be made available after it has helped them and then match that up to what our governments are saying. Cannabis is a medicine. It is time for big pharmaceutical companies to take the share price hit that is coming to them. Their drugs can be replaced by something you can grow yourself. Billions of dollars will be lost when their toxic medicine will be replaced by a non toxic, healthy, Mother Nature solution to cancer and other diseases.

The video Spells out the health benefits of cannabis. Once it was known that cannabis is a medicine, why wasn’t it immediately made available to sick people? The answer lies in the type of societies we live in. We have governments influenced by massive corporations that only want society run in a way that profits them. It has clearly been shown that big pharmaceutical companies tried to suppress positive science on cannabis and financially backed politicians that sought to continue the prohibition of cannabis. They have billions in profits at stake, the heads of these companies are cut throat capitalists who only care about profits. This small group of people and their shareholders have kept cannabis out of the reaches of sick patients.

Spain (population 60 million) is the best country in Europe in terms of cannabis research. There are 500 million people in Europe, 300 million in America, and a few hundred million from other progressive minded nations. Cannabis has been shown to kill cancer cells during a Spanish scientific experiment. Imagine what the results of this discovery will be when it is not just Spain doing all the work, but the smartest minds from everywhere. Will we see the end of cancer? Today one in three people will have some form of cancer in their life. We need more cannabis research. We need the end of cannabis prohibition and we also need to start running our societies with people and not profits in mind.

Growing your own weed

growing cannabis

Growing your own pot has never been easier. We now have all the information you could ever dream of, right here on the internet. Years of trial and error has been distilled down for us. Today we know the perfect temperatures to grow(76 degrees), the ideal acidic level food should be delivered to the plants(6.5) and even the kinds of lights and the amount of time they should be on and off for. Imagine the hippies up in the Californian hills in the 1960s. No internet or books to guide their pot growing. No forums to lend a helping hand when their leaves started turning funny colors. We can buy good quality equipment, perfect for the job of growing cannabis. In short, we are spoilt. Our first concern is getting pot legal, obviously. After this big business will move in and try to profit as much from this as any other business. Sick people on lower incomes or disability’s pay will get priced out of the market as profit and taxes go up. It is important, when the time comes that we are ready to grow for ourselves. Yes it would be nice to simply buy pot, but the true value of the herb includes putting our modern selves back in touch with the earth and mother nature. There is a whole world outside of the supermarket. Our consumerist ways are killing the planet so it is time for a change. Actually living with your pot plants and going through all the stages before you get the neat little bag filled with medicinal giggles will give us in most cases, our first contact with nature. We now live in cities, our natural human form is ignored as we fly through the internet and evolve only our brains. We are still connected to the earth whether we choose to see it or not. When pot is legalized, lets not give our power away to the big companies that will step in to provide the cannabis. Lets grow it ourselves. The video below is a little cheesy but it is full of the information that is needed to grow great cannabis. If you are in Europe you can use: Sensi seeds, Dutch-passion seeds, Dinafem seeds or Paradise seeds. I know they deliver to America but I have no experience with any other companies so I can’t recommend any others. If you do have another good seed company, let us all know in the comments. Leave the name and a link. Lets start the new generation that is both smarter and still in touch with nature. Lets all become growers!
