Hey plant lover, do you have a minute?
As a mom of Heal Mary, I like to share my own story with you.
Over the years I have developed a special bond with cannabis.
I traveled to Brazil and discovered the healing powers of ayahuasca and peyote. I experienced that these and other plants, which I always saw as enemies, could be allies. That they can be a guide, oracle and friend.
I also started to look at cannabis differently, and to delve into the history and medicinal applications. A world opened up to me. And I gave the plant another chance in my own life. I had chronic tension headaches at the time and tried everything, but only a specific cannabis strain helped. It became my medicine, I used it as a sacrament.
I discovered that cannabis helped with the tension headache, and that it made me creative, funny, relaxed and contemplative. As if I got a sense with it.
In my research I discovered that there is a very special and strong connection between our biology, especially that of women, and hemp. But how many women are aware of that, in a country where you can just freely experiment with cannabis? After I wrote an article about CBD (non-psychoactive hemp) on my blog, things started to go wild.
Because I got a lot of questions from people who were interested in CBD via Instagram and in real life, I registered for a Cannalogie course. I am currently following this home study. I learn everything about the plant family cannabis sativa. About THC, CBD and fiber hemp. Every time I am amazed at the unparalleled list of uses of the plant, and every time I study my drive grows to share this knowledge and contribute to the destigmatization of the plant.
Cannabis is the only plant that can nourish, heal, clothes and provide us with a home.
Meanwhile, THC is still illegal in the Netherlands and people are evicted from home and severely fined for making oil themselves, even if the oil is intended to help sick people heal. In certain states in the US, women can purchase THC wellness products that improve their daily lives in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. But these products cannot be sold here.
And I think it is bizarre that fiber hemp should still not be grown freely. You can make anything from hemp, from clothing to concrete, and it is much more environmentally friendly than, for example, cotton.
Although I focus on what CBD and cannabis can do for people, I think it is important to be aware of the criminal side of cannabis. A while ago, before I studied magazine journalism and started working as a copywriter / journalist, I completed a bachelor's and master's degree in Dutch criminal law, and then I graduated on the criminal implications of tropical forest clearing. At that time I did not know at all that fiber hemp can save the rainforests (one hectare of fiber hemp absorbs 25x more CO2 than one hectare of forest!). And of all places I was born in a miniscule country with the most famous cannabis history and culture. Coincidence? I don't believe in it.
I believe in the power of hemp - all sorts - and I hope that Heal Mary can help people and regain their natural balance. Until everyone is over, this will remain my mission.
Go for it.
