With the new movement of cannabis, new and exciting products are coming out all of the time. For decades, political propaganda led many to believe that anything to do with cannabis, or marijuana, even the very mention of the plant, was criminal and punishable. But since the internet has exploded all around the world, the truth about this healing and medicinal plant has come out, laying waste to the lies for once and all. Although it was once ‘common knowledge’ that cannabis was harmful, light has shined and truth has prevailed. And that truth is that cannabis is a very versatile, very healing*, and therapeutic plant that can help most people all around the world.
For a long time, anything to do with the mention of cannabis, or marijuana, had been outlawed, looked down on and thought to be criminal by many. But with the advent of the internet, the truth has come out about cannabis, in that it is one of the most healing and therapeutic plants in the world. Cannabis is known for ‘getting you high,’ but the truth is that only one chemical or cannabinoid compound found in the plant can have that effect, while most of the other known compounds that are unique to cannabis are healing*.

Although many outsiders criticize Columbus, Ohio for being in the midwest, and perhaps surrounded (only partially) by cornfields, the city is a booming zone for creatives and young professionals. Not only was it named one of the most intelligent cities, it’s also been named one of the most up and coming cities in the USA, and with this boom opens up a whole new world of possibilities. City streets are being transformed and money is being pumped into all sorts of attractions, galleries, and entertainment. One of my absolute favorite gems in Columbus is that of Shadowbox Live, a dinner theater, concert, and theater venue that specializes in music theater, sketch comedy, and relevant plays like their new feature called “F*** Cancer.”
For as long as I can remember, I’ve dreamed and wondered of my ancestry, and since I knew so little beyond my immediate ancestry here in the USA, I’ve always felt a bit lost. Since I never knew my family’s history or what I was made of, I often struggled with having that feeling of belonging like a festering amnesia, which inspired a lot of my travels. For much of my European travels, I searched and searched for that feeling of belonging, and while much of that lacking is due to inadequate family and upbringing, I had felt at home in many of the areas that I visited.
GSI Outdoors has come out with a new line of bottles that will add value to any adventure. Where I’ve often struggled at finding reliable drink ware that I like, and that adds to my adventure rather than taking from it and becoming a burden, GSI has succeeded. A lot of the entry-level bottles and market prevalent bottles that I’ve tried often seem to be cheaply made, or are overpriced with no extra features. Sadly, I’ve found that many simply fail at their most basic feature, while being poor at retaining heat or cold, or they tend to leak around the lid and will spill down my front and get in my beard every time I take a swig. It’s a small thing, but it can be rather annoying.
