Why cannabis?

Isn’t it crazy that you never have to ask anyone why they consume alcohol?

If someone did, would the answers be as profound as the answers given when asked ‘why cannabis?’ We don’t think so. While we hate having to ask women why they choose to consume, we are always inspired by their answers. Hopefully one day, there will be no need for this question. But until that day, we hope at least one woman can feel a little more comfortable about her reasons when she sees posts like this.

Whenever someone questions you or any other women as to why she chooses to consume, send them here. Let them read the myriad of ways in which cannabis has helped women.

“Why not? Cannabis first and foremost is sacred plant medicine that actives & aligns us to more ease and peace in our lives.

I said what I said.”
