Six years ago, I promised that if and when I found anything that helped me beat Seasonal Affective Disorder — aka winter depression — I’d let everyone know. Little did I know that instead of sharing some rad supplement or kickass energy work, I’d end up talking about one of American society’s biggest taboos: cannabis. Weed. Marijuana. Ganja. Mary Jane.
Whatever you call it, my inner Nancy Reagan is SCREAMING right now.
I’d never given cannabis a try (except that one lackluster time in college), so all of this was/is new to me. Buds, bongs, joints, highs, edibles…all of it.
I’m telling you what happened when I smoked weed for the first time, as well as what I’ve tried, what worked, what didn’t, and why I’m (finally) not depressed in this episode of the podcast!
If you’re curious about cannabis, currently suffering from depression, or already love this wonder plant and want to hear my take on it, listen in!
Please note: I am not a medical professional, a therapist, a budtender, or any sort of cannabis expert. That’s exactly why I’m sharing! Any Google search will reveal endless amounts of data about cannabis, but stories about peeps overcoming their own D.A.R.E. program demons are much harder to come by.
P.S. Want to hear about other forms or rad healing magic? Breathwork is right up your alley.
