Destigmatizing THC: A Guide to Open Conversations with Your Family this Holiday Season

Destigmatizing THC: A Guide to Open Conversations with Your Family this Holiday Season

This holiday season, as we gather with our nearest and dearest, let's take a moment to embrace open conversations and break down the stigma around THC and hemp. Thanks to the evolving legal landscape, it's the perfect time to discuss these topics openly with your family. In this blog post, we'll explore the legalities surrounding hemp and THC, and introduce our take on microdosed hemp gummies—a discreet and accessible way to experience the benefits of this remarkable plant.

The Legal Framework:
Understanding the legal status of hemp and THC is key to dispelling myths and reducing stigma. The Farm Bill, passed in 2018, has paved the way for the legal cultivation and sale of hemp-derived products, including those with THC levels of 0.3% or lower. Since passing this legislation, the industry has boomed with all kinds of hemp derived products available. (Our favorite are hemp gummies!)

Encouraging Informed Choices:
Empower your family to make informed decisions by exploring the world of cannabinoids found in hemp. We encourage you to research and understand the differences between hemp and cannabis (though we’ll be breaking this down in a future blog post). Our commitment to quality and transparency ensures that you can trust products as you embrace the potential health benefits of cannabinoids.

Dispelling Myths:
You’ll likely hear “Isn’t weed a gateway drug?” or “I thought all stoners are lazy?” In reality, There’s a ton of successful and productive individuals (such as the writer of this post) who use cannabis frequently, and responsibly. It is true the effects of this plant can vary widely from person to person, however, we encourage you to foster a conversation to show your loved one why making sweeping generalizations about the motivation and productivity of people who enjoy getting high should be avoided.

As you and your family come together during this holiday season, let’s foster open conversations and destigmatize THC. The changing legal landscape and acknowledging the consequences that the war on drugs has had on marginalized communities can hopefully provide a pathway for understanding and acceptance. By sharing knowledge and experiences, we can contribute to a more informed and supportive family environment, celebrating the plant's potential. 🌱 ✨
