CannaTeachings of Individuality
Cannabis is not just a plant to get high on, and it’s not just medicine. It’s a teacher in many forms and of many things. There are lots of lessons that it holds not only for patients or recreational consumers but regarding society as a whole. From healing naturally to diversity, the lessons are almost endless. One of the greatest in my own opinion, however, is the teachings it has to offer regarding individuality and how individual aspects are designed to work better together. Let me elaborate.
Cannabinoids found within cannabis are a great example of how individuality offers many benefits as well as how together, these individual aspects work better together based on what they each have to offer. For example, CBD and THC both offer a plethora of health benefits when isolated. CBD is an excellent anti-inflammatory and works wonders for anxiety whereas THC is excellent for relieving pain, nausea, and helping consumers find a peaceful night’s sleep.
Together, however, in coordination with other cannabinoids and terpenes, they work to create what is known as the Entourage Effect. Thanks to this, the effects of all individual cannabinoids are typically increased in return providing more significant benefits to the consumer or patient than when the individual cannabinoids are isolated.
The same is valid for individuality within our society. In our vast world, there are a plethora of cultures, religions, and walks of life. Each individual is different, just like each cannabinoid and cannabis strain is different. When you combine the individual aspects, however, the end result is much greater than when these aspects are isolated from one another.
Could you imagine a world where we lived the Entourage Effect? Where each individual was able to bring something to the table that enhances what another has to offer and work in unity with one another? Could you imagine the healing this would bring not just in a physical sense, but emotionally and spiritually for people worldwide? This is something cannabis has to offer. This is only one lesson that it stands to teach.
Similar to how cannabis needs THC, CBD, THCV, THCa, CBG, terpenes and other aspects to provide the best results the same is true for society. The world needs doctors, scientists, astronauts, physicists, teachers, and engineers but it also needs cooks, construction workers, custodians, road crews, waitresses and cashiers just as much. When we’re able to work harmoniously combining each skill and we respect that every skill is equally as important and needed in the big picture is when we as humanity and society will experience the entourage effect.
