With the pandemic called COVID-19 sweeping across the country in unprecedented fashion, it is changing our way of life daily. How do we adapt to still share the culture of the cannabis community that we have fought so hard to get to this point? The old puff puff pass ritual just can't work in these times. Social distancing and community shutdowns have taken their toll on all of us. One thing I know about the cannabis community is that we can get through any situation together. This blog is not meant to be educational but motivational this time around through unfortunate circumstances. There are many ways that we can still share the experiences of the growing cannabis community.
The question is brought up, if cannabis can help treat the coronavirus that is terrorizing the world? Does anyone know how to treat the hidden beast? We are truly in isolation and doing everything we can to get from day to day so with that being said smoking a bowl or two helps me deal with the thought of the hidden virus sitting outside my window. I am not so worried about myself but my family, my wife and daughter, my grandparents who we are purposely avoiding. This is a true test of perseverance that we can still keep our sanity and keep a positive mindframe to fight this and come out stronger. Obviously smoking anything when fighting a respiratory predator of a disease is a bad idea, but there are other alternatives of consumption that can still benefit by attacking anxiety, depression and other common symptoms that cannabis is a proven medicine. The answer is truly whatever you want it to be right now. These unprecedented times somewhat offer us the opportunity to find out what truly helps us through the day.
There is nothing more to say other than stay safe, protect your family members and protect the world as we will need everyone's help to rebuild. We will get through this and come out stronger as we always do. You learn more about yourself and a community when you battle off adversity and come out stronger and wiser. Do whatever you feel like you need to do in the form of medication and treatment to preserve some form of normalcy when facing something no one has ever seen! Just trust your instincts. The day will come again when we look over with a smile as we puff puff pass again.
