Help us spread the word!
We have goal to reach 25K people this year with low-dosing education, and this year is off to a great start. Our founder, Kristie Amobi, had the opportunity to be a panelist in February for a Cannabis 101 event in Pasadena, CA and has several more events coming up in April. We'd appreciate your help to spread the word. Follow us on social media. Like our posts. Distribute the guide! Read below about addiction risk - a common question we get all the time!
This event at Culture Club 101 in Pasadena, CA was a great night doing exactly what we love - educating others on using cannabis for wellness. Check out some videos from the panel here. (include link to video page).
Panelists included: Rebalan founder, Kristie Amobi; Plant Society Founder, Shari Boyer; Sue Feldman, a cannabis nurse; and Eva Davis from cVia Life.
Should I Be Concerned About Cannabis Addiction?
We know there is still skepticism and taboo surrounding cannabis use, despite growing legalization. A pressing concern for many who are considering cannabis use is whether or not it can become addictive.
Our recent post looks at some of the relevant history and research around cannabis dependency to help you understand the issue.
I'm a divorced mom of a special needs boy and work full time. Even with a healthy diet and consistent exercise, life for me can be hard to deal with.
There have been periods in my life when I needed to deal with my anxiety and mild depression with pharmaceuticals. My doctor prescribed me Zoloft to deal with getting through some particularly difficult times, but I knew that it was never going to be a forever solution. Eventually, I slowly weened off of Zoloft, which had lingering and severe side effects, such as severe depression, that I've never experienced before.
I had never thought of cannabis as a healthy way to ease anxiety. Even living in marijuana-friendly NorCal, I had never heard of low-dosing. I had always thought of marijuana as the gateway drug to harder drugs or for people wanting to escape from reality. I had a poor perception of recreational marijuana users. That all changed when I met Kristie.
Kristie introduced me to the world of low-dose cannabis use over two years ago. I have to say that I was skeptical at first. But Kristie presented the use of low dosing in a way that was aligned to my lifestyle.
By using cannabis in low doses, I'm able to do all that I need to do without the heaviness of anxiety that I can sometimes experience, but without ANY side effects or feeling drugged.
I now tell others similar to myself who I feel would benefit from low dosing. Like myself, they have been skeptical at first, but I introduce them to Rebalan and products that I enjoy, like the Kiva mints. My friends know me. They know I'm not a "druggie" and that I don't even drink alcohol because I need to feel in control. With low dosing, I feel in control of my life at all times with no side effects.
