The Plant That Began It All...
And why that matters to Your Highness Media.
Hello higher-minded humans,
We have a special episode out, and it’s different from all the rest for one specific reason: it’s only about kratom. While we are long-time canna consumers, it was the special speciosa plant that reframed how we view and value plant-based healing alternatives.
Kratom has been a hot topic in the last decade since we began in the industry, and the misinformation continues to overwhelm people who are curious. Pair that with shady players who only care about profit, and you have a lot of controversy about a plant. While those in cannabis can relate, there still seems to be a lack of acceptance when it comes to kratom in that space.
We talk about elitism in plant medicine quite a bit on Your Highness, because the limiting attitudes and uninformed hot takes are so contradictory to what we want, why we started this podcast. Everyone should have access to whatever healing modalities work from them, without fear of stigmatization or criminalization. Fear-mongering discussions about a plant within a space that shouts from the rooftops about “plant over pills” are counterintuitive.
In the episode, you’ll hear about the ways kratom improves our lives, tips for purchasing, and medical considerations with the help of Dr. Peter Grinspoon. Let us know if you listened and what you think, and we’ll send you a gift from our sponsor, Mitragaia.com.
Until next time, stay high and beautiful.
