Wildcrafting the right way

There’s something to be said for using and harvesting plants and herbs grown in the wild – also known as foraging or wildcrafting. Clearly, a balance must be struck if one is to do it at all. But we at Medicine Box have found that nature does the best R&D imaginable, and if done properly, wildcrafting gives one a golden opportunity to understand a plant’s full curative expression.

Veganism and the equanimity lifestyle

The Vital Life Force inherent in every cell of every plant, body and even the inanimate world of rocks and the mineral kingdom can be considered “magical power,” because many people do not understand it is simply operating within the Laws of Nature, which are usually ignored by the majority of society.

Equanimity and witchcraft

The Vital Life Force inherent in every cell of every plant, body and even the inanimate world of rocks and the mineral kingdom can be considered “magical power,” because many people do not understand it is simply operating within the Laws of Nature, which are usually ignored by the majority of society. Modern medicine and indeed the pharmaceutical industry are quite aware of the healing power of many of these plants/herbs and have learned to synthesize them in laboratories creating some of the drugs prescribed today.

Equanimity and the meditation mindset

You know it’s bad for you, but you just can’t admit it to yourself. Perhaps others around you know it, too, but they just don’t know what to say. Confrontation is difficult, but mindfulness, and yes, even cannabis’s lessons of calm and forbearance, can guide us towards the uncomfortable truths we have to face about ourselves.

Escaping into mindfulness with your cannabis practice

Escaping into mindfulness with your cannabis practice

At its worst and its best, cannabis offers an escape for its users. It all rests on whether you’re escaping from fear, or escaping from the truth.  A good mindfulness practice can help one determine the difference, and a properly administered cannabis wellness regimen can sharpen one’s intuition for this crucial task. I’ve based much of my own mindfulness practice on 12-step teachings.

Is cannabis still alternative?

Is cannabis still alternative?

Throughout the 20th century, cannabis was a stalwart camp follower of every vital underground movement. Now with the mainstreaming of cannabis in the 21st, WE are seeing an alternative develop to the dominant paradigm being established by the big boys — and Medicine Box is proud to take part in the movement.

Alternative sports and cannabis

Alternative sports and cannabis

By now, you already know of my profound and abiding love for skiing, entrepreneurship and the tradition of cannabis farming. If you’re doing any of them well, you’re never playing it safe. No matter how old I get, I never lose that taste for the adventure you can find in these disciplines, and neither do any of the people that master them.

Alternative health and cannabis

Alternative health and cannabis

Not unlike many other places in the world, communities in America have supported grassroots health care practitioners and practices. Sometimes it’s tolerated by mainstream health care; other times, it’s attacked. Medical cannabis is the disruptor to this dichotomy, and once the dust settles, we’ll be all the healthier for it.
