Cannabis can save the world. A bold statement perhaps, but potentially true nonetheless. As a dietitian, when I look at the cannabis plant, I first see its nutritional value as a vegetable, loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. I also know that essentially cannabis is hemp, and hemp hits a home run every time when it comes to nutritional value (among its other thousands of industrial uses).
A quick nutritional summary of hemp:
- Great source of complete protein
- 100% vegan
- Easy to digest
- High in healthy Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids
Wow — what a power house!
As a holistic healthcare professional, I recognize and highly respect the diversity of cannabis in its uses as a medicine to heal and repair both the body and the mind. It is my opinion that cannabis may not only be the best medicine, but also the most nutritious plant known to humankind thus far.
Set your timer for 10 minutes
Sit comfortably in a chair (a firm chair is probably better than an armchair). Have your feet flat on the ground and your hands relaxed in your lap
Remind yourself why you want to meditate today
Softly gaze ahead and take five slow, deep breaths (in and out counts as one breath). As you get to the last one, close your eyes. Breath normally.
Notice how your body feels. Are you sitting evenly? Does your body feel heavy or light in the chair? Just notice, no need to adjust or change anything.Details
A People’s History of Cannabis Consumption
Vaporizers, edibles, and biologically engineered cannabis strains are the norm today. But according to scholars, the journey toward the perfection of cannabis consumption has lasted millennia. From bundles of incense and clay pipes to hand-blown glass pieces and the first ever vaporizer, humankind embarked on a long journey to get to today’s golden age of getting high.

Nick Boppe: Head Grower
After a couple decades as an itinerant construction worker, Nick Boppe values his job as head grower for Buddy Boy Farm in eastern Washington for its steady paycheck and the chance to work outdoors.
“As a guy who grew up in the Pacific Northwest, I’m an outdoors person and I find a lot more enjoyment out of the whole farming aspect,” said Bopp, 37.
Born in Sandpoint, Idaho, Bopp earned a fine arts degree from the University of Montana and embarked on nearly two decades of construction and landscaping work, mostly in California.
“I was living down in the Sierras, building houses for folks who had medical marijuana cards that allowed them to grow their own,” he said. “I built some greenhouses and helped some other folks get their gardens sited and equipped.”
Bopp found himself increasingly attracted to the cannabis culture. “I feel like I’m pioneering a trail with this stuff, and I couldn’t find that in too many other things in life,” he said.
Cannabis connoisseurs have long prized potency as one of the main factors that makes a particular strain more desirable than another. Potency has long been popular in an illicit market—when the local selection consisted of the offerings of one illegal dealer versus those of another, many consumers were looking to get more bang for their buck and sought out the strongest strain. Traditionally, cannabis users attributed strain potency to high levels of the cannabinoid THC, which has led to the proliferation of strains that are full of it. THC may be the most prevalent active compound in marijuana, but it is only one of at least 85 that we know of. Thanks to marijuana’s growing legitimacy as a medicinal option, CBD is starting to emerge as the cannabinoid poised to steal THC’s thunder.
