Canna Honey

Here’s a holiday gift idea for you and your loved ones who are suffering from insomnia, stress, pain and other ailments. Might they benefit from the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties CBD provides? Time to get “real”. (www.realcannahoney.com) Cannabis is medicine. Canna Honey is owned and operated by mother and daughter team, Laurie Card and Breeze Powell Spivey. Check out their story – support local business.

Disclaimer. I am not a doctor and I do not benefit financially from advocating for Canna Honey. Consulting a physician who understands the power of this medicine is a possible consideration. CBD is a powerful tool.  Be smart about CBD and any other compound you put into your body.  Caffeine (coffee and tea), Pepsi, candy bars, metformin, lipitor – whatever you are ingesting – has implications on your physiology and consciousness. I’m reminded now of all the horrific side effects that accompany big pharma ads. CBD does not come with these “major” side effects. Why is that?

In a simple way, with CBD, we have a natural product produced by spaceship earth. Should we eat everything that grows in the dirt? No. Can nature kill? Yes. But, isn’t there something compelling about this ancient compound? Do the research. Ask others about their approach. Talk to a manufacturer. Consult your physician.  What are the risks? What is the cost? What is a therapeutic vs wellness dose? Are you happier and heathier? Recovering from your workouts more quickly? Sleeping better? How is your wellbeing? Are you kinder? More empathic? I am just scratching the surface. Look into it. (https://bengreenfieldfitness.com/podcast/brain-podcasts/cbd-athletes-benefits/)

Are you still buying into the Reefer Madness propaganda? Is the criminalization of what a person chooses do with their body part of your ethical framework?  If so, it’s time to get real. Please review: (https://www.kqed.org/lowdown/24153/reefer-madness-the-twisted-history-of-americas-weed-laws ) It’s a good overview. Why did we bail on such a ubiquitous and useful plant? Sadly, racism plays a part:

“Widespread unemployment and poverty during the Great Depression furthered resentment and fear of immigrants and minorities, and fueled concerns about the perceived ills of the drug that had become associated with them. A flurry of pseudo-research linked the use of the drug to violence, crime and other socially deviant behaviors.”

How is “marijuana” regulated in the unincorporated area of Lincoln County, OR. (https://www.co.lincoln.or.us/planning/page/marijuana)

As a final note and to my surprise – Facebook would not allow me to boost a paid ad for Canna Honey. The Verge has good coverage on the situation. https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/10/18653803/facebook-cbd-posts-ads-promote-lawsuit-cannabis

Emerald Valley BMX – ReDiscover

Finally, a third attempt to rediscover Emerald Valley BMX race track, Eugene, OR and it was open for business: my first time riding here in 35 years.

Kinda funny ‘cause I thought I was gonna stomp it… but, hit my wall sooner than expected. Quite the workout. Shout out to my Mom for supporting and fueling a love for BMX. For several years, in the early 80’s, racing here on Thursday night and Saturday mornings was a pretty routine thing. The parentals carting me and other kids from Veneta/Noti back and forth to Eugene.

Now an Olympic sport, BMX seems a lot faster than I remember. Asphalt berms. Super flow. Seems like other O.M. are back in the saddle these days like Kirk Linder who we idolized as one of the cool kids back in the day.

Thanks, Mom! #bmxforlife
