Co$mic Poetry: BBHMM Blunt Online Premiere!

Here it is! I made my public debut as a screenwriter and director with "BBHMM Blunt" at the 2019 SPLIFF Film Festival. "BBHMM Blunt" was selected as one of 24 finalists in the inaugural festival with films all centered around weed under 4:20 ;)

I’m so thankful that this film was viewed by over 3000 in multiple cities over the past few months, and I’m excited to share it with all of you!

Mystic Marijuana: New Moon in Gemini

Usually when we think of a genius, we think of a person who has made a phenomenal, long-lasting contribution to some socially-valued domain. They’re either a great artist, scientist, political leader, someone with a high IQ, or have an exceptional performance at young age. Some people rarely sympathize with geniuses, assuming it is easy for them to create, and that ideas just appear in their minds easily. I believe it is hard for a genius because they can’t live “normal” lives, seeing the world differently than others. If you’re working with many fields perhaps with little ‘formal’ training , slaying without explanation, are flexible—open to newness, taking risks, promoting vanity along the way—than you’re a genius.

The multifaceted Gemini, invokes the genius within. Months ahead we’re diligently asking the right questions at the right time, distancing ourselves from complacency. Our Mother Moon drops several feats on us, for us to call on our greatness. Focus your attention on an assortment of devotions these next weeks. Our mood for the New Moon in Gemini is, “Do shit better than they’ve been done before.” The genius never feels small, always rising above meekness. Not all will innovate by tomorrow, but the trees also don’t grow up to the clouds. Just like the sky that gives the trees space, the genius creates space for the impossibilities in our lives. Those impossibilities coming true are miracles. Be the genius, be the miracle this universe needs. 

New Moon in Gemini Mantra: 

Inhale, the hero inside 
Exhale, the recipe for excellence

Review: Space Candy

It’s the time of the year when everything is teeming with life, and like a dandelion, there’s the feeling of being ready to spread one’s seed with each breeze that blows over the body. This time of year asks me to be flexible and ready to move—be it physically through traveling, mentally through setting new career/ legacy goals, or spiritually through marking my annual growth progress as my birthday approaches at the end of the month. It seems I always make a big trip or life decision around this time of year, and like the evolution of the dandelion bloom, it starts from having strong, sturdy, nutritious roots, presenting oneself in environments that will not label me a weed or stifle my growth, and then surrendering to the force greater than myself to carry me farther than my current view allows me to witness.

This past April, Women.Weed.WiFi had a month-long residency at Mount Analogue gallery in Seattle, where we transformed the space into a “Sanctuary of the Modern Divine Feminine” — our #internationalgirlgang interpretation of the Spice World tour bus featuring our collective and individual work surrounding themes of holistic and herbal medixine, ancestral wisdom and healing, and collective organizing. In setting up the exhibit we reached out to so many members of our larger community that provided their energy, resources, crafts, bounty, and magic including Nurturing Roots Farm, The Plant Shop, and Ritual Cannabis!

We’ve been blessed with the magic from Ritual Cannabis since we first got to experience their healthy, happy plants at their outdoor, sungrown garden in Klickitat, WA almost two years ago. The love and attention that goes into these plants is something you can smell, taste, and appreciate when smoking the bud, like the difference in eating pasta sauce from the can versus one made with tomatoes that you’ve seen grown with love and organic sunshine. That shit hits different.

I used this nug of Space Candy in conjunction with a solo Smoke + Stretch session, and instantly felt better after viewing and smelling the big nugs. The body was bright green, had yellow hairs as highlights, and a perfectly fluffy, though not powdery, consistency. The smell was sweet with a hint of a cheesy aftertaste/smell...it was like smelling Goddess pussy :) It crumbled like a dream and was easy to roll up—what I loved was that the smell easily translated into the flavor after lighting the blunt. Sometimes a nug can smell good, but taste mediocre, however since nothing is rushed during the cultivation process at Ritual Cannabis, all the bud has time to fully develop its terpene profile, or its unique chemical signature.

This strain assisted me in many mirror dance parties and also many nights where the rest of my to-do list was abandoned in favor of falling into a sedative sleep or binging something sensory like Chambers on Netflix (spooky horror series featuring native womxn Sivan Alyra Rose). This high made me want to booty pop through all of the moments of discomfort I’ve been experiencing as things and concepts are destroyed in order for something else to exist in its place. Through the relaxing, joyous high I was able to affirm my path and keep my third eye focused on what it is I’ve been manifesting as well as surrender to the cosmic winds like the dandelion in spring.

Mystic Marijuana: Full Supermoon in Libra

Unthawing is a great and common description used to comprehend spring equinox. Our subconscious is warming up to the idea of being playful, entering a new body, getting ready to conquer another pilgrimage. The body takes an ample number of days to reach its peak fortitude. Time always adds intensity, especially going through Libra, Aries, and into Taurus energies. The conversations between the associated planets speeds up our infatuation for a vitalized future. This infatuation reveals a new burst of self-confidence underneath the thawed ice of winter. Prancing into Aries season, we mist ourselves with an outpour of blessings after a dizziness of confusion. Hardly ever do we hear about success without hearing about the failures along the way. Ain’t shit sweet, unless its bitter first.

Before I suggest an herb that best assists with how to “unthaw”, let’s purify and prepare for the next version of ourselves. We throw our anger and frustrations like heavy stones at the Earth. We give the Earth what doesn’t serve us because we take it for granted. We forget Earth swells up when we’re ripped from it. You’re only granted immunity from your setbacks if you and Earth make an agreement to unthaw together, rather than just confiding or dumping on it. Include Earth’s herbs into your magic.

Mint is the best for “unthawing” your fertile energy, birthing success, and protecting your money. To enhance visions, blend mint and frankincense and burn on charcoal. While the smoke lifts say this spell, repeat lines 8-10 3x.

I am the air.
After many successive pushes 
Sea becomes waves.

I am the seed 
Earth waits for a final push—
Life becomes inebriated 
By my waves. 

I am the influence 
I am the push 
I am the wave
