5 Ways Weed Can Be Used to Inspire
Marijuana, one of the most precious plants that humanity cherishes. Some of the greatest personalities in the world have time and again touted the importance and influence of Marijuana (fondly known as weed) in their lives. In 1988, during a media interaction, Steve Jobs asserted, “The best way I would describe the effect of marijuana and hashish is that it would make me relaxed and creative.”
From Snoop Dogg to Lady Gaga, several celebrities have spoken about how weed allows them to discover a different shade of their creativity and sets them at peace. Willie Nelson talked about weed and said, “I wouldn’t be alive. It saved my life. I wouldn’t have lived 85 years if I’d have kept drinking and smoking like I was when I was 30, 40 years old. I think that weed kept me from wanting to kill people. And probably kept a lot of people from wanting to kill me, too.”
Marijuana is primarily known to release stress and enhance creativity. Most scientists believe that consuming Marijuana stimulates the release of dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter that generates a sense of happiness and calmness in the body and mind. Marijuana is often used as a medication but mostly it is used for recreational purposes. It has the amazing ability to inspire an individual into new concepts and theories and can help them bring out the best in themselves. In this article, we shall look at five ways weed can encourage, inspire and improve our lives.
1. Know yourself better:
In the robotic lives we lead and tight routines we follow, we often tend to lose contact with ourselves and our emotions. We no longer know how we feel, what we like, as stress becomes a normal thing. And we no longer know how to live without it. Weed helps you get back in touch your yourself and feel what it feels like to be you. It helps you feel comfortable around yourself and discover all your various facets. Khalifa shared how weed helped him discover the cool side of himself. He said, “It helped me know that I was cool in my little world, that I should just go towards that instead of away from it.”
2. Settle the anxiety:
Anxiety has become part of our routine and a consistent feeling for most of us. Weed helps to calm down the anxiety and lets us live moments of sheer pleasure and peace. For those moments, you stop needing to be in complete control. Kevin Smith is a big fan of weed and talked about how he encourages children to do weed. He asserted, “I know you’re supposed to tell kids not to do drugs, but, kids, do it! Do weed! Don’t do the other stuff, but weed is good!”
Weed drains you off of the anxiety, the pressure, the tension, and everything that stops you from being you.
3. Discover what you want:
There are many factors that keep us from making decisions or can influence our decisions differently then we would normally. Weed helps you think from your conscience and do what makes you the happiest. It helps you set your priorities and then based on them, make the right decisions that aligns to your core values. When in doubt, find some good weed and get going on a ride to discover all your answers. Khalifa once shared how weed helped him keep his priorities in order.
He said “Weed helps you get out of your standard thought process. I’m able to better sort out my thoughts. Instead of everything seeming just like a big mess, I’m able to put things in order and attack them.” Irvine Welsh talked about the role of Marijuana in his life. He said, “I’d always done a lot of sniffing glue as a kid. I was very interested in glue, and then I went to lager and speed, and I drifted into heroin because as a kid growing up everybody told me, ‘don’t smoke marijuana, it will kill you.’”
4. Hear the music differently:
When it comes to music, it is like another dimension that you can properly perceive only when you’re high. Weed helps you look at music in an entirely different manner and maybe could help you approach it differently. You could even try a free music making software to execute on your creativity and put it into music. Kurt Vonnegut even believes that marijuana could help one tolerate bad music. He asserted, “Alcohol and marijuana if used in moderation, plus loud, usually low-class music, make stress and boredom infinitely more bearable.”
5. Setting goals:
Weed helps you think deeply about the things you want to achieve in your life and strive to get them. It helps you be practical and set your goals according to your potential. It keeps your approach positive towards your goals and keeps you motivated towards life.
Weed is a precious herb, not just medicinally but also recreationally. It helps people in a lot of ways and makes their lives easier. It allows them to know themselves better and accept themselves the way they are. It lets the anxiety in them settle for a while and not take over the peace in their lives. It gives them an alternative perspective to look at their lives. It allows people to discover themselves, recognize their priorities and what makes them happy, and then make decisions. It allows musicians to perceive music differently and work on it with improved creativity. It helps us set goals as per our potential and keeps us motivated towards them. Carl Sagan expressed how he feels declaring Marijuana illegal is unjustified. He said, “The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world.”
