We explore the potential for plant medicine to be used as a tool for healing and transformation. I share my personal experience using CBD to lower hypervigilance and anxiety, but note how THC can have varying effects on our journey, with the potential to increase hypervigilance and anxiety. We also discuss the importance of journaling in order to reflect on our experiences and start shifting narratives. Finally, we touch on the difficulty of accessing quality products and the need to call attention to food deserts.
