The herbs that help you rest

Not many people are given good instructions on how to get to sleep. Up until recently, it’s been posed as a binary, and indeed, the more stress you put on oneself, the less likely you’re going to get the sleep one needs. The moment to start preparing begins, interestingly enough, when you first wake up. According to sleep scientist Matthew Walker, both your circadian rhythms and the sleep pressure built up by the steady increase of adenosine throughout the day will eventually intersect to bring your waking life to a halt.

Stop the Censorship of Plant Medicine

Free speech. It’s on the lips of just about everyone you talk to nowadays, and everyone has an issue with what they can and cannot say about our world. Well, plant medicine practitioners have their own unique cross to bear, especially those of us here in California who remember another time, back when we were able to make our own unique connections with the consumer. It’s important, as we end this month’s discussion on the distinctions between our two brands, to remind you that if you’re using plant medicine, there’s more than one way to get well, no matter what anyone may insist upon.

The whole plant vs some of the plant

This will be another opportunity to talk about our relationship to whole plant remedies and why we can’t do what we necessarily want to do with our product line – yet.

1Cab and the entourage effect

This will be a chance for Dr. R to speak about the combinations in 1CaB and how they heighten the effects of each product.

Reintroducing Medicine Box

This is our moment to recontextualize what Medicine Box is, and where we discuss THC Equanimity and why it’s still important for us to maintain our foothold in this market in the 1CaB era.

Mental health, simplicity, and cleaning out the cobwebs

Mental health, simplicity, and cleaning out the cobwebs

Cleaning out the clutter. Every so often, you’ve got to do it, especially in times of outer chaos, because if they’re messed up out there, they’re going to get out of sorts inside as well. And if you’re going to do a little spring cleaning, you will need the proper tools and cleaning liquids for the job. But don’t fret — Medicine Box’s got you covered.
You may have grown up with or around a hoarder — in my house, that would have been my mom. The basement was pretty much where all of my childhood relics have been preserved, from Star Wars action figures to random books stretching back to my preschool days. While it annoys the hell out of my Dad, it’s hardly as bad as it can get, when it fills entire rooms and the person simply can’t bear to throw any of it out, no matter how much pain it causes them or others. Just like any sort of addiction, there’s a comfort that sets in with having things just so, even if it keeps you from budging an inch.
