What’s the best way to deal with staying inside during this quarantine? Explore inside your own heart, mind, body, and soul through writing!

Join our two facilitators, cannabis coach, Victor Ung from Human Up, and a cannabis blogger/educator, Heather Dagley from Bud & Blossom in using this newfound time to learn more about ourselves and how to be with the many different emotions we’re all feeling right now. Video and audio participation is optional!

Feel free to (optionally) enhance your experience and creativity with your favorite alcoholic beverage, or cannabis! 21+ only. You can also prepare your favorite tea, evening coffee or whatever else you do to get you in the zone.

**Why cannabis?**

Cannabis has been used by ancient cultures for millennia as herbal medicine. Even in America, hemp was used by early colonists for textiles and rope. It’s only in this last century that cannabis became banned and developed this stigma as a dangerous narcotic because of political and racial factors.

When used in conjunction with mindful practices like meditation, yoga, and journaling, cannabis can heal us physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Of course, cannabis is still a drug. And like any drug (i.e. coffee, alcohol, pharmaceuticals) it can be overused. Some studies have shown cannabis to have habit-forming, addictive qualities with heavy-use, which may cause withdrawal for some. For that reason, it’s all the more important to educate ourselves around this plant and to frame our intentions around why we’re using cannabis so it can provide more benefit than harm. Please consume responsibly.
