I guess the only reason my Grandparents did not use marijuana in their healing process was because every one of us did not have marijuana in our area, then grandpa, but, knew all about marijuana & told me they called it loco weed
For years, I had been helping my Grandmother gather herbs & make salves & medicines. She kept telling me that when she passed on, it would be up to me to pass this knowledge on to future generations; To me, I wasn’t doing anything more than studying about my ancestors & how they lived, i was wrong. I came from a long line of American Indians, & my Grandmother was showing me the aged ways. It wasn’t until I got older, did I realize how important my Indian heritage was. I was talking to a Dr. who practiced holistic health, & every one of us were talking about my Indian heritage. I was telling her about the several herbs my Grandmother had taught me to ground together to make lotions & ointments for burns, bee stings, & other complications. She taught me how to mix lard & ginger to help with sore throats, & how to make cough syrups that would legitimately help with a cough. I l acquired how to make poultices to ease the lungs & natural healing for ladies’s health. The Doctor that practiced holistic health told me I was already a holistic health healer. The only other thing he used in his practice for people who had dire pain was marijuana. I guess the only reason my Grandparents did not use marijuana in their healing process was because every one of us did not have marijuana in our area, then grandpa, but, knew all about marijuana & told me they called it loco weed. I laughed at Granma’s expression when he talked about loco weed. She didn’t want their granddaughter to guess he was a pothead.
