But, I Have Never Touched a Drug in My Life
This is a statement I get often, as it speaks to the fear of putting cannabis medicine into the body. Let me explain the beauty of this plant and the way in which it interacts with the human and animal body (they are very similar)…
At Halo we have a belief in “Faith Over Fear”, it is something that drives us in order to allow our clients to feel safe and comfortable when discussing this medicine. I hear all the time the fear of never having taken “a drug” before, that myth needs to be dispelled right here, right now…
Why Cannabis is Different
The cannabis plant when produced into the oils that I make removes the idea of a narcotic, it is simply a concentrated version of multiple compounds of the cannabis plant that the body responds so well too. Our internal endocannabinoid system (secondary nervous system) is built like a plant with both CB1 and CB2 receptors throughout the body and brain. This incredible plant binds to these receptors that allow the body to start the process of repairing itself…cannabis doesn’t just help with the symptoms of a condition, it helps get to the root cause of a condition. In that way, we are helping the body move back towards homeostasis (centering of our body).
This plant within my life has been a gift from God, but I had to get over my fear first and once that happened I saw and felt the magic of what this plant was put on this earth to do and that is to heal, to allow our bodies to do what they were meant to do, repair!
We are here every step of the way to conquer this fear, to have faith in the plant and the dosing…BELIEF is such an important part of life, truly an essential part of the body functioning at a high level. That’s what we want for every client we have….just a little patience and a little faith is what we ask for!!!
