Natural Alternatives For Mesothelioma Relief Treatment

Mesothelioma is a rare and deadly cancer that affects the lining of the lungs, abdomen or heart. It’s caused by exposure to asbestos, carcinogenic minerals used for their fibrous heat resistant properties. Asbestos is “regulated” in the U.S., but not banned. On the contrary, it is commonly used in materials that we’re surrounded by on a daily basis.

Mesothelioma is a rare deadly cancer caused by exposure to materials containing carcinogenic minerals.

A lot of patients who have been plagued with this disease are now turning to Medical Marijuana as a natural alternative treatment to ease symptoms, as they express traditional treatment side effects often decrease their quality of life. Common alternative treatments for mesothelioma include herbal medicine, medical marijuana, acupuncture, energy therapy, yoga, meditation and more. These alternatives are not intended to cure the cancer, as there is no cure, but can provide relief from symptoms, therefore, improving quality of life while living with this condition.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, The Mesothelioma Center provides resources incurred from extensive research done over the years, and Webinars that can deliver a sense of comfort in dealing with this type of cancer.

Instagram & Facebook have long been notorious for ghost blocking and deactivating accounts of individuals who either express themselves creatively through marijuana, run legal Cannabis businesses, or those who are striving to break stigmas and correct the narrative on Cannabis.

The Cannabis industry is growing faster than ever, yet Instagram chooses not to progress with the changes. Allowing the cannabis industry to thrive on social media will allow people to access new events, products, and a variety of cannabis content for those who medicate, and the enthusiasts who legally indulge.

What’s Your Sign? The Relationship Between the Moon and Your Cannabis.

Lunar Gardening Practices to Maximize Your Growing Potential.

Have you ever wondered why some of your harvests resulted in better quality and higher yields, while others seemed to be less impressive? Even when you grew them in the exact same conditions and applied the exact same cultivation practices? While genetics play a huge role in the quality and yield of your flower, another factor you may be missing is implementing practices that are in alignment with the ebb and flow of the lunar cycle. 

Circadian Rhythm vs. Circalunar Rhythm.

Lunar gardening is an ancient practice that’s been used by most, if not all, indigenous civilizations. It simply consists of carrying out specific tasks in your garden depending on the phase and position of our moon. While modern society would call it pseudoscience, it is a practice that has proven successful for centuries, perhaps even longer, and is now used in biodynamic agriculture*. Similar to the Circadian rhythm, which promotes organisms on Earth to wake and rest based on the cycle of our Sun, the Circalunar rhythm allows organisms to time reproduction. With that being said, growing with the lunar cycles will promote vitality and enhance the yield of your plants.

*Note that although Biodynamic Agriculture was coined and rooted in the work of philosopher and scientist Dr. Rudolf Steiner, the practices and teachings have been known and used for centuries amongst indigenous civilizations on a global scale— without the scientific explanation that Dr. Steiner and other researchers have been able to provide to support for their findings.

How The Circalunar Cycle Affects Plants.

Phases of the Moon

Ocean tides are the most recognizable effect of the Circalunar rhythm. As we have learned in school, the gravitational pull of the New and Full Moon brings us high tides in our ocean and causes moisture to rise on our beautiful Mother Earth. In the same context, the gravitational pull of the moon affects the flow of sap through plants, and pulls on the subtle bodies of water in all living organisms, including seeds and soil. Sap is a nutrient-rich fluid that flows through plants like blood flows through our veins. It is the life force of all plants. During the waxing phase of the moon, the phase in which the moon is becoming fuller, sap moves vigorously up the plant through the leaves as the plant matures, through the flowers. During the waning phase, which begins right after the full moon, it becomes less and less visible as the sap pulls back down to the root system to flood it with nutrients. This means that timing germination, transplanting, pruning, and harvesting to be in sync with the phases of the moon is crucial for a top-notch grow!

Sap is a nutrient-rich fluid that flows through plants like blood flows through our veins.

Understanding The Phases of The Moon.

New Moon

The Moon cycle has (2) two parts that have been broken down into (4) four quarters. The New Moon marks the beginning of this cycle. At the commencement of the cycle, the Moon appears completely dark and is not visible from our view on Earth. It’s from this stage that the moon begins to transition into the waxing or ascending phase. Day by day the Moon begins to illuminate little by little, making its way through the first two quarters, until it reaches the full moon. The Moon spends half of the month in the waxing phase and its gravitational pull encourages plant fluids to flow vigorously upwards through the stems, leaves, and flowers. This is why it is best to harvest right after the waxing phase on the full moon as it draws all of its energy into the flowers.

Full Moon

The Full Moon marks the second part of the Moon cycle, commencing the waning or descending phase. Day by day the Moon becomes less and less visible, transitioning through the last 2 quarters, until it goes completely dark and reaches the New Moon again. The Moon spends the other half of the month in the waning phase, and its gravitational pull becomes less forceful encouraging plant fluids to move back down into the soil and root system all through the 4th quarter. For this reason, it is best to begin germinating right after the wanning phase on the New Moon.

Position of the Moon.

The second thing you will need to put into consideration when lunar gardening is the particular constellation the moon is positioned in. There are (12) twelve prominent sets of constellations that have been recognized for thousands of years. Each constellation is associated with one of four elements: Fire, Air, Water, and Earth. The element in which the moon is positioned in, is the element that is strongest in your garden. Consequently, specific tasks should be conducted depending on the element the moon falls into.

The Four Elements in the Moon Cycle.

Fire Signs – Strengthen Germination

The Moon positioned in a fire sign promotes seeds to swell and bust. Germination should take place when the moon is positioned in Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

Air Signs – Strengthen Flowers

The Moon positioned in an air sign is associated with strengthening the flowers of a plant, therefore, harvesting is best to take place during Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.

Water Signs – Strengthen Leaves and Stems

Leaves and stems swell and grow when the Moon is positioned in a water sign. Tasks that focus on the foliage like pruning, or the stems like plant training should take place when the Moon is positioned in Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.

Earth Signs – Strengthen Soil

The Moon positioned in an Earth sign is associated with the soil and roots of your plant. Tasks like preparing your soil before a new growth cycle, or adding fresh compost and microbes in the middle of a grow should take place when the moon is in Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.

How to Implement Lunar Gardening

Now that we know how the phase and position of the moon affects our garden, let’s talk about when are the best times to implement practices that flow with this cycle.

Soil Preparation.

It is best to begin preparing your soil during the Waning Moon in an Earth sign constellation. This is also a good time to add fresh compost and microbes to existing plants to boost your soil productivity.


The New Moon is the best time to start growing leafy plants, like Cannabis. When the New moon is positioned in a Fire sign, the germination process will be most effective up until the first quarter. You can relate this to the idea of sparking a new flame within the seeds during a time that flame will flourish most. The high moisture content and force of the New Moon will help the taproot pull down into the soil with the greatest vitality it can possibly achieve. The seeds are then able to absorb more moisture as the Moon waxes towards the Full Moon, when moisture in soil is the highest and, if growing outdoors, energy from the photons that begin to pour down onto the Earth from the moonlight.


When it’s time to transplant your young plants into the ground or to a larger container, wait for a Waxing Moon sitting in a Water sign constellation. This will allow your roots to expand and absorb moisture more efficiently.


Low-stress training techniques are best to be implemented when the Moon is waxing and sitting in a water constellation


Pruning excess foliage should take place right after the full moon amidst the Waning Moon, while it sits in a water constellation. There is less sap pulling into the leaves during this time, and is considered a resting period. Allowing your plants to heal in the strongest manner possible. Keep this in mind for any tasks that focus on the growth and health of stems and leaves.


When it comes to supplying additional nutrients mid-growth, applying fresh compost when the Waning Moon is in an Earth sign will help enhance the intake of nutrients through the roots, or Water sign to enhance nutrient absorption through leaves with a foliar spray. Either way, both should be during the Waning Moon as sap moves down into the root system. 


As mentioned before, the Full Moon pulls all of the plant’s energies into the fruits and flowers, and they are the most resilient while the moon sits in an Air constellation. Many cannabis growers argue that the flower is ripest and contains the most terpenes and cannabinoids during the Harvest full moon especially. Therefore, it’s suggested that the best time to harvest your fruits of labor is during a Full Moon and until the 4th quarter, while in an Air sign.

Important things to Note.

  • Soil contains the highest amount of moisture during the full moon.
  • Nutrient absorption is most prominent during the wanning moon.
  • Water absorption is most prominent during the waxing moon.
  • Photons that pour down from the moonlight promotes robust leaf growth the most during the waxing phase.
  • The full moon encourages energy to flow into the flowers, but it also raises the moisture content. This means if you harvest on a full moon you need to be extra attentive during the drying and curing process.

Lunar Gardening Can Benefit All Farms & Gardens

Now that we understand how to implement lunar gardening to our Cannabis grow, it’s time to start putting it into practice. Not only can these practices be applied to your Cannabis grow, but you’ll find that the Circalunar Rhythm also effects flower, herb, fruit, and vegetable gardens as well! They all benefit in their own ways. Learning how each flows with the cycle of the moon will result in more robust, resilient, and flavorful yields.

NYC Sets Out To Be “Most Equitable And Inclusive Cannabis Industry In The Nation”

This Tuesday, January 24th, 2023, Smacked Village will have the soft opening of the second dispensary to open in NYC! Owner and operator, Roland Connor, is one out of twenty-eight individual licensees, and the first to open their NYC cannabis dispensary. They join forces with the non-profit dispensary Housing Works Cannabis Co. who was the first dispensary to open their doors on December 29, 2022. They are one out of the eight non-profit licensees.

In March of 2022, NYC state officials announced that the first adult-use dispensary licenses would be issued to qualifying individuals, specifically with Cannabis convictions. And that’s just what they did! Processes were set in place to prioritize cannabis license applicants who were impacted the most by the war on drugs. In total the Cannabis Control Board, or CCB, issued 36 Conditional Adult-Use Retail Dispensary licenses to applicants with cannabis-related convictions; 28 to qualifying individuals. and 8 to qualifying non-profit organizations.

In a public statement, NY Gov. Kathy Hochul stated, “This dispensary is the latest example of our efforts to build the most equitable and inclusive cannabis industry in the nation.”, and according to Tremaine Wright, Chair of the CCB, “Dispensaries with ownership like this one exemplify our commitment to building a nation-leading model for establishing an equitable cannabis industry that works to offset the harms caused by the disproportionate enforcement of cannabis prohibition.”

Roland Conner is one of the first trailblazers to set the example for the rest of the NYC cannabis community! According to a statement in the New York Post, “he has a “healthy skepticism and caution” moving forward as one of the first licensees.

It definitely appears NYC is taking the correct measures to ensure our peoples are being looked out for in this rising cannabis industry, but there are still some who feel the application requirements were designed to exclude them.

Is NYC really doing everything they can to say they have the most equitable and inclusive Cannabis Industry in the nation with their current opportunity initiatives? Where do you guys feel it needs improvement? LEAVE YOUR THOUGHTS BELOW.

Smacked Village is set to open at 144 Bleecker Street in Manhattan on Tuesday, January 24 at 10:00 AM.

What is Hempcrete?

Hempcrete, or Hemp-Lime, is a strong eco-friendly building material. It is a concoction of four parts industrial hemp hurd, to one part water, then one part lime based binder, in that order. Although research has shown hemp being used to build structures for thousands of years, most of the data on using it in construction has been lost. Modern society just recently in the late 1980’s re-discovered hempcrete in France, and they have been studying it ever since.

Hurd, or Shives, refers to a mound of splintered or shredded plant-fibers, like wood fibers often used to make paper. Industrial Hemp hurd is made from the inner part of the cannabis stalk.

Hempcrete Approved for U.S. Residential Construction

As we mentioned, Hempcrete is a sustainable construction material that has been used in France for a long time now, and more recently Canada jumped on the bandwagon. Despite its outstanding sustainable properties, federal hemp prohibition in the U.S. made it impossible to get it approved for official U.S. building codes. This changed in September 2022, when hempcrete was approved for U.S. residential construction in 49 out of 50 states. Although the changes are not expected to take effect until 2024, businesses in the U.S. who have been using hemp materials for years are starting to come out and reveal the true nature of some of their materials. In this article I will briefly touch on all the great attributes of hempcrete, but I’d really like to focus on the resolution to the challenges we currently face with this amazingly resourceful building material. I’m a strong believer that there is a solution to everything!

Hempcrete’s Resourcefulness

Hempcrete is strong, fibrous, and flexible enough to be shaped into bricks, panels, sheets, coverings, and can even be sprayed into cavities. It’s lighter, and not as brittle as concrete.

Benefits of Building with Hempcrete.

Research and studies have shown that hempcrete has many sustainable properties that make it beneficial for building homes.

To name a few of these properties:

Even with all of these benefits we are still facing some challenges, but none that we can’t overcome!

Challenges With Hempcrete

The following are some drawbacks we are facing according to this article, Biggest Disadvantages of Hempcrete as a Building Material, and an interview with Rocky Mountain Hemp Build!

Challenge 1: Knowledge – claims there are not enough companies to model who are using hempcrete in building projects.

Opportunity:  As mentioned earlier, businesses who have been using hemp products for years are now starting to reveal the true ingredients of some of their materials. For example, Just BioFiber and their awesome hemp blocks! Many other companies are becoming open to learning about and newly integrating hempcrete in their construction work as well! So although there are still some challenges to learn about and overcome, there are plenty of Hemp companies emerging with information from many years of experience in the U.S. and across the globe

Challenge 2: Limited Uses – Because of it’s breathable texture, states that “companies can’t feasibly use hempcrete for marine or underground works.”

Opportunity: There are sources that claim depending on how the hemp is treated, it can indeed be used for building ships. For example, after being treated with tar, Hemp was used to make ships watertight in a process called caulking.

Challenge 3: Not Suitable For Warm Wet Climates- believes in certain climates hempcrete buildings will increase to an uncomfortable indoor temperature.

Opportunity: There are many plant-fiber insulation materials available like, wood fiber, cotton, and cellulose. However, recent studies have actually found that hempcrete differs in its capability of maintaining itself in humid conditions specifically because of the lime-binder. According to a study performed on “The potential of hemp buildings in different climates” hempcrete buildings performed similar to, if not better than, traditional houses in the warmer southern climates.

Challenge 4: Increased Drying Time- Another downfall found is that hempcrete takes several weeks to cure and can be affected by weather conditions during the building process.

Opportunity: Companies are innovating premade hempcrete building materials, which overcomes the challenge of having to build with fresh hempcrete.

Challenge 5: Hemp herd availability– In an interview with Rocky Mountain Hemp Build, we learned that cultivators are struggling to find good processors to produce quality hemp hurd, and shipping hemp for processing is very costly.

Opportunity We need to make strides for (1) more Cannabis Education Programs, while making sure they are accessible to everyone, and (2) Accessible Cannabis business licensing. If cultivators were able to integrate a hemp herd processing facility on premises, or at least nearby, they can cut shipping costs out of the process. Education and accessibility will inspire people to start-up more processing facilities across the country.

Challenge 7: Hempcrete is not load-bearing – claims construction firms won’t be able use hempcrete in heavy load bearing projects.

Opportunity: This means the hempcrete must be used with a supporting structure like wooden frames to withstand heavy weight. In addition, a recent study treated hemp with rHDPE, a plastic made from High Density recycled Polythene, to increase the mechanical strength of hempcrete. The overall study indicated that a compound of 40% hemp fiber and 60% rHDPE volume, increased it’s tensile strength to 60.2 MPa, significantly surpassing that of concrete. We definitely want to stay away from implementing toxic plastics, however, this give us hope to find other compounds that could potentially be used to increase hempcrete’s load-bearing capacity.

Challenge 7: Less square footage – Since hempcrete walls are made thicker due to its insulating factor, sees this as a major drawback as you will have less living space, and this could potentially lower the value of your home.

Opportunity: If walls were made thinner, could hemp wool be used for insulation to compensate for thickness of the hempcrete walls? This is an idea I’ll have to research more.

Challenge 8: Cost It’s a known fact hempcrete is more expensive than traditional concrete at this time.

Opportunity: One of the major factors of hempcrete being slightly more costly than traditional concrete is the fact that it’s “new”, to us. Due to decades of hemp prohibition, people don’t know much about it, so there aren’t many companies producing it yet. Scarcity drives cost up. High Cannabis taxes also get in the way of being able to keep cost down. So this challenge comes down to the fact that we need more educational programs on hempcrete, access to cannabis business licensing, and improved cannabis tax reforms. As cannabis continues to push forward more cultivators and processors will be in a position to supply affordable hempcrete.

The Future of Hempcrete

All in all, the opportunities hempcrete has to offer far outweigh the challenges we are currently overcoming. Cannabis reform has everything to do with the success of hempcrete, as we need access to more education as well as businesses to gain access to Cannabis licenses.

Let’s cultivate and create a more sustainable world! Paradise is just a plant away!

Where Can I Get High Off My Own Supply in the U.S.?

Although the late Biggie Smalls advised us all against this practice, this is a question I asked myself back in 2014. Then, two years later, I was in Washington, D.C. legally cultivating my very own home grown bud! You’d be surprised how many states have legalized home cultivation. There are still various limitations of course, but the silver lining is: you can get it done legally! In this day and age, learning how to self medicate is crucial. 

Throughout your research you will find there are states that have legalized cultivation for both medicinal and adult-use (21+), however, other states have legalized cultivation for medicinal use only. This means there will be extra measures you will need to take before you can legally cultivate at home. Although we will review the states that allow home cultivation to some degree, make sure to do your own thorough research on your specific county and municipal laws before starting your grow!

Legal Home Cultivation By State

Last Update 12/16/2022


In Alaska, they permit up to 6 plants per adult 21+, and only 3 of those plants can be mature (flowering). No more than 24 plants per household, and they specify they must be grown in a secure, private location. 


Arizona, similar to Alaska, permits each adult to grow up to six plants. However, a single household cannot have more than 12 plants, regardless of the number of eligible adults residing there.


California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana in 1996. Currently, California cultivation laws allow adults 21+ to grow up to 6 cannabis plants per residence, not per individual. Some cities and counties have specific rules for home grows, such as permit requirements or requiring grows to be on your personal property and grown indoors. 


Colorado, similar to Alaska and Arizona, permits up to 6 plants per adult 21+, and only 3 of those plants can be mature. As mentioned previously, make sure to do thorough research on local restrictions specific to your city because some have implemented additional restrictions. For example, in Denver they have limited cultivation to a maximum of 12 plants per household, even if there are three or more adults over the age of 21 in the residence.


In October of 2021, Connecticut approved for Medical marijuana patients 18 years and older to grow up to 3 mature and 3 immature plants at home, with a cap of 12 total plants per household. They are to be grown indoors at primary residence, and where individuals under 21 can not access the plants. Beginning July 2023, these cultivation laws will apply to all adults 21+. Until then, you must be a medical marijuana patient to legally cultivate in Connecticut.


Qualified medical marijuana patients can grow their own in Hawaii. They are permitted up to 10 plants in the main residence that is owned by the patient and/or caregiver, with no more than 10 plants.


Home cultivation in Illinois is legal. however, only if you have a Medical Cannabis Card. But as long as you’re 21+ you are free to grow up to 5 cannabis plants in your home outside of public view and with permission from the owner of course. Plants must be in a locked room, with no access to anyone under 21.


Maine’s laws allow for adults 21+ to cultivate up to 3 flowering plants, 12 immature plants and unlimited seedlings. Make sure to follow through and learn the guidelines you must follow to stay compliant.


Maryland is one of the most recent states to legalize home cultivation, which does not go into effect until July 2023. It’s not until then, adults 21+ will be permitted to grow up to two cannabis plants in their homes for their own personal use.


Massachusetts allows for adults 21+ to grow up to 6 plants in their home, with a maximum of 12 plants per household. The plants can’t be visible from a public place without the use of binoculars, aircraft or other optical aids, and they must be grown in an area that has a lock or security device to not be accessible to individuals under 21.


Michigan allows cultivation for adult-use, and individuals 21+ may grow up to 12 marijuana plants at their residence only. An adult may not grow marijuana plants “if the plants are visible from a public place” or if the plants are growing outside of a secure area.


Missouri is one of the few states that allows 18 year old medical patients to cultivate at home. Not only do you need Dr.’s approval, but you will also need to apply for a cultivation license. Thoroughly research your specific county and municipal regulations before you start your grow!


Montana is another state that approved home cultivation for medical patients 18+, in 2021. They are allowed up to 4 mature plants and 12 seedlings. As far as individuals with no medical conditions are concerned, adults 21+ may cultivate up to two mature plants and two seedlings for private use in a private residence, subject to certain restrictions. Like most state regulations the plants may not be visible to the public.


Nevada has approved adults 21+ to legally grow cannabis plants at home. But the catch is, only if there is not a state-licensed retail cannabis store within 25 miles of the home! Only then can you cultivate up to 6 plants per person, but no more than 12 plants per household. The plants must be grown out of public view and it must be equipped with a lock or other security device. Cannabis county and municipal laws will vary, so make sure to do thorough research on your local laws before you start your grow!


New Mexico cultivation laws allow adults to cultivate up to six mature and six immature cannabis plants at home, with a maximum of 12 mature plants per household.


New Yorkers 21 years of age and older can grow up to 6 cannabis plants in their home for personal use (3 mature plants and 3 immature plants) and a maximum of twelve plants per household (6 mature plants and 6 immature plants). 


In Oklahoma, you must first obtain a medical card before you can start cultivating your own. It also has to be done on property you own, or you need written permission to grow from the property owner. Patient card holders may have six mature plants and six immature plants and make sure your plants are out of site from the public view!


Oregonians can home grow up to four plants per residence, regardless of how many people live in the residence. Four adults in one residence does not mean 16 plants. The limit is four per residence.


Rhode Island’s Cannabis Act allows registered medical card holders 21+ to Cultivate up to six plants (of which only three may be mature) at private residences. Like most other states, it must be grown out of public view! As of December 1, 2022, medical marijuana patients and their caregivers will no longer have to pay a fee to grow their own medical marijuana but will still need to register with the CCC.


Amendment A would have approved recreational users to grow at home if they lived in an area where there were no licensed marijuana dispensaries. However, that initiative was struck down in July 2021 by the supreme court.

Until this ruling is overturned, only medical card applicants may apply to cultivate up to two flowering plants and two immature plants that are not flowering in their home.


Vermont allows personal cultivation limited to two mature cannabis plants and four immature cannabis plants regardless of how many adults 21+ reside in the residence. Some other regulations may apply, so make sure to check your local laws before you begin cultivation.


In Virginia, adults 21+ may cultivate up to four plants for personal use at their main place of residence. Precautions must be taken to prevent unauthorized access by persons under 21.


In the state of Washington, you must have a qualifying medical condition to grow at home. If you register yourself in the state database to cultivate, patients may grow 6 to 15 plants for their own medicinal use depending on a doctor’s recommendation. The law also allows registered patients to form cooperatives to pool resources to grow plants. Cooperatives must be registered. A non-registered patient may grow up to 4 plants. Make sure to thoroughly review your local county laws to stay compliant!


D.C. permits residences to cultivate up to six marijuana plants in their household, no more than three of which are mature.

My Connection to Growing Bud Is Spiritual!

It might sound crazy, but it’s true! Learning how to cultivate these plants deepened my relationship with our Almighty Creator. It opened me up to see how energies flow through this universe on a whole other level, and how we are all connected, down to the plants, and beyond!

When I first started growing I had to start from scratch and mostly with online mentors to get a sense of direction. Eventually I realized there was so much they could teach me, but there was a major part of growing I needed to cultivate myself. I started with 3 strains; Jack Herrer, Missing in Barcelona, and Royal Gorilla. I would spend hours observing the plants. From the soil, to the stems, each leaf, bottom of the leaves, examining every sugar leaf and crystal. Don’t get me started on when the beautiful buds started blossoming! Lord knows my heart, mind, body, and soul spoke to them, and they spoke to me. I was able to feel what they needed and it allowed me to help them thrive! I’m also a major perfectionist and needed to make sure they were being raised PERFECTLY so I could have PERFECT Bud! Isn’t that what we all want!

Well I have to say, developing my connection with my plants and making sure I gave them 100% of what they needed, 100% of the time, paid off! My buds were full and luscious and although I knew there was room for improvement, friends and Fam were quite impressed at my first go around. But after I harvested my plants I realized how much more of the plant was left after removing the buds, and it really started to make my mind churn.

I started to research how to make what was left of my cannabis plants resourceful, and man did it blow my mind! But once I learned it could be used to build homes with insulation, build and supply vehicles with fuel, and the list goes on 50k+ more resources. My whole paradigm shifted.

I was raised as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, and as many Christian religions believe, I was taught that a new time was coming and soon we’d be living in a perfect paradise on Earth. We must be good Christian’s, stay alert, and be prepared. Since a baby my parents taught me that we would need to rebuild the Earth after Armageddon and God would turn the world into that paradise. Although a lot has been skewed along the line, I do find truth in a lot of what I was taught. I know that God uses people to accomplish Their will on Earth. My creator has inspired me to contribute to creating that new paradise on Earth in more ways than just one. Why wait until after Armageddon to start learning how to be resourceful and rebuild? Let’s be resourceful now! Why wait to be healed? Let’s begin healing now! God has blessed us with this Earth to supply us with everything we need to heal and thrive! Even if we’re not here, these are things we need to teach the generations to come, our children. So I’ve vowed to continue to sharpen my craft at growing and be able to supply affordable resources for the world with my plants.

Many of us recognize we live in a global system that is crumbling, but there is indeed a rainbow that follows, and yes it is important for us to be prepared. One way we prepare is by remembering our connectedness to one another no matter what we look like or where we come from. No matter how religious or non religious. Spiritual or non spiritual. We are all ONE with each other, the animals, the plants and our beautiful Mother Earth, Gaia. We all need each other to survive! Let’s do our part to help rebuild our world in a new positive light.

I will be hosting a workshop for those who would like some direction with growing Cannabis on Sunday, January 22, 2023 at 3 PM EST. Register to learn what it takes to grow at home on a budget!

In this workshop you will learn:
•The 5 phases of cultivating quality bud.
•Everything you will need to supply your grow.
•How to recycle your plant parts.
