I never get tired of talking about weed. Hearing other people talk about cannabis these days is kind of tedious though (especially when they’re uninformed). Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE what is happening with ganja and hemp right now, but I am growing weary from all of the misinformation that is Still being perpetuated (thanks weedmaps and leafly).
Chip Baker, the host of The Real Dirt Podcast, is one of my best resources for all things cannabis. I’m also lucky enough to be his wife, so we talk endlessly about our favorite weed strains, what’s happening with the hemp market (ouch!), what we’re going to grow next time..
This canna-conversation was all about taxonomy (indica, sativa, rhuderalis, et al) and how the collective idea about sativa and indica is just plain Wrong. I try not to get too upset about the ignorance, since decades of prohibition have warped our understanding of cannabis as a plant. This topic has already annoyed a great many. Changing our understanding of something is hard. Yet it is our duty to overcome the lies and myths that come along with prohibition. Whatever your opinion is on the subject, there is Always more to learn.
PS: Today is Cinco de Drinko: On this date in 1993, the 21st amendment was ratified to end the prohibition of alcohol!
