Cannabis is a Superfood – Robyn Griggs Lawrence

Tune in Wednesday October 19th at 6:00 PM PST to hear Robyn speak about why Cannabis is a Superfood

robynAs laws around the world are relaxed and prohibition comes to an end, cannabis is emerging as a medicinal superfood with exponential possibilities for healing. But challenges remain. Because the industry is still largely unregulated, consumers often have no idea how their cannabis is grown (all too often with lawn chemicals) and processed (all too often with butane). We must advocate for sustainably grown, responsibly marketed cannabis and show consumers why that matters. Those of us who love the plant must stand up for her evolution as a natural medicine and superfood—without adulteration—just as we fought for organic food standards in the 1990s. We can preserve this sacred plant’s spirit from over-manipulation and adulteration, but advocacy and education are key.  cannabis-cook2
