Welcome to 2019 – albeit a bit late. I’m looking forward to jumping back into blogging and welcome any ideas for content readers want to see on The Treeline!
Lifestyle & Culture
Personal cannabis lifestyle, exploration and interests.
There’s a stigma against cannabis use, but drinking alcohol is seen as a normal and expected thing. One helps my anxiety, one adds to it. Seeking balance, here! I’m wondering if it’s time to drop the booze altogether — or reserve it for occasions few and far between.
Cannabis seems to work to address so many health issues, and menstrual pain is one of them. There are lots of products on the market to offer pain relief via THC and CBD — it’s just a matter of finding the one that suits your needs!
As a parent to two young kids, who works from home and is generally the ‘default parent’ I’m working to find space for cannabis in my life. Of course, there’s still stigma around parents who use cannabis, but if one can be a ‘wine mom’ I think one can be a ‘weed mom’ too!
I was one of the first-day orderers on the Ontario government’s cannabis retail website, the Ontario Cannabis Store. You’ve probably heard about how badly OCS messed up orders, especially on the first day. Here’s my experience!
Marihuana, marijuana, cannabis, weed, reefer, dope, pot, ganja… the list goes on (and on, and on). The government once called it marihuana, then marijuana, and now cannabis seems to be having its moment in the spotlight. Where did the terms marijuana and cannabis come from, and which one is the ‘right’ one to use today?
Being a white, female, upper-middle class Canadian means I have privilege when it comes to using cannabis, both post-legalization, and in the past when it was criminalized. Recognizing that privilege is important as we move to legal, recreational cannabis as a country.
I think my cannabis journey is probably pretty common — I smoked in high school and into early adulthood, quit (mostly) once I had kids and entered a more complicated stage of life, and am now exploring what cannabis has to offer in my 30s.
