Whatever aches, ills or unusualities ;-) you may have, your body is working well enough to power your act of reading and considering this post. It's quite an unacknowledged feat all that must happen within you, physiologically, to simply surf online. Let alone fuel physically demanding activities.
So, it never hurts to applaud the many symphonies playing throughout your body's impressive systems:
Among many other wonderful things, cannabis is also an essential super-nutrient. Essential? Yes. Why else would our bodies be designed with cannabinoid RECEPTORS, if we didn't, to some degree, NEED TO RECEIVE cannabinoids? And what's the cost of NOT GETTING A NEEDED SUPER-NUTRIENT?
Epic displays of depression, obesity, fatigue, cancer and a host of auto-immune diseases, perhaps? Cannabinoids are foundational to holistic health. Their absence from our diet -- the lack of their support to our physiological systems -- shows up in a less-than-vibrant majority.
I love every part of the cannabis plant. Including the easily recognized, but never smoked, cannabis leaf:
I became aware of my own nutritional/cannabidnoid deficiency by these two occurrences:
- Over the past several years, I developed a strong and consistent urge to eat all parts of the cannabis I had access to. It started with "discards" of seeds and stems. Then, the hankering grew to buds. Until now, I desire to eat it by the handfuls. Like popcorn. Or granola. Eating raw, unheated cannabis does not alter your mind in any way. There are no psychoactive effects, so the craving to consume it in this way is purely nutritional.
- I observe a correspondence between the amount I allow myself to eat, and the overall energetic well-being I feel throughout my mind, body and life.
One night, I confessed this odd, weed-eating habit to a friend. Thankfully, he shared that quirk with anarchist farmers in town who grow cannabis organically, and have an excess of their crops' leaves.
For some reason I can't understand, the leaf does not have the same commercial value as do the buds. When you buy flower in medical or black markets, the leaf has been separated from the bud, which is why I had never even seen one before, in real life! But generous folks that they are, they gifted me with a nice supply of fresh, green wonder. I've been adding it to my soups, salads and smoothies ever since:
- Cannabis Leaves
- Peach Yogurt
- Water + Ice
