  • “Baked” Banana Bread Recipe

    When I think of Banana bread I think of warm after school snacks with my mom. I think of the smell it makes as it cooks throughout the house and joy it has brought. So when you are fighting disease, don’t have a great appetite and need something to soothe you and your belly this is a perfect option.

    Since this is a childhood recipe for me I found it only fitting to adapt my mother’s recipe for when she was turning to medicinal for help with her cancer treatments. It was something she loved to make with me and loved to eat so it was easy for her to get down and helped her keep her appetite throughout the day. This deeply improved how she would feel throughout the day and would help her manage the daily aches and pains.

This varying impact is specific to marijuana, it’s notable that this level of discrepancy isn’t found in other recreational drugs. The effects of alcohol, cocaine, and other narcotics on sexuality are easily predicted while cannabis stands alone with its unpredictable nature.

  • Flow State and Cannabis: How To Alter Your Conscious For Optimal Performance

    Cannabis aides flow state by altering mental perception. Time is elastic, it can be measured in feeling. Five minutes can feel like the blink of an eye or a lifetime depending on the state of your consciousness. When you enter a ‘flow state’ time is altered. Goals are clear, actions become automatic and spontaneous. You feel in control and focused. You become so absorbed in the task at hand that your sense of individuality slips away. In the nineties, they called it being in the zone.
