I’ve been a Christian most of my life

I smoked weed a bit in high school and then I stoped at 16. I didn’t touch it for almost 15 years. I stayed away from it mainly because of the intense judgment I experienced from the christian community.

Then I began educating myself on the benefits of the cannabis plant. A plant that is apart of God’s creation.

We have an endocannabinoid system and the cannabinoids in marijuana interact with our bodies to balance and regulate our immune system response and communicate between cells. The journal of Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, published an article that Cannabidiol has the ability to stop cancer by turning off a gene called Id-1. The American Association for Cancer Research has found that marijuana actually works to slow down tumor growth in brain, breast, and lungs considerately.

We have to get past the stigma of marijuana and trust the science that is coming out. Let’s be smart fellow Christians! I truly don’t believe that God against a plant. In fact I think God has created so many medicinal plants to help us.
Doesn’t it make sense that a plant that grows easily that has hundreds of uses, would be a gift to us to work with. It may not be helpful for everyone, but we shouldn’t fear it!

I’ve had intense pain in my shoulder, hands, both CBD and THC combined work well to help me with the pain. I’ve also noticed a huge ability to focus my A.D.D. With specific sativas. I accomplish more and execute things I typically resist.

Most importantly, for me, I have used cannabis to allow my ego to step aside and deep dive into my own thinking, the negative self-talk, and see others with more compassion. Hence, feeling so connected with Spirit!

I truly hope we can trust the science and open ourselves to seeing how this plant can be used as a medicine to heal & connect deeper with one another.

May we all be open to this conversation and get off of our judgements!
