I'm Mik. Model, mother, moron. Future meta-magician. Former logic clinician.
My better half and I own Brainfood Bookstore in Longmont, Colorado. It is the only exclusively indie- and local-lit bookstore in the nation. We meet a lot of crazy folks.
Testimonial from a former roommate:
"Living with you was like living with a quiet little opinionated deer person who floated around like a ghost and said smart/nutso things and ate seaweed. "
I love Colorado. I love mountains. I love hiking. I read and write. I raise my children to the best of my ability. I have lupus and have defeated early-stage cancer twice, so I pretty much fully support the use of medical marijuana.
Yes, I have heard of juicing and desperately want to try it, but because I live in Kansas, it is almost impossible to get fresh marijuana. When I move to Colorado this summer and I am legally able to grow medical marijuana, I am going to start juicing. For those of you who don’t know: While smoking or ingesting dried marijuana helps reduce pain and even inflammation, it doesn’t treat the root of the problem. Ingesting ‘juiced’ fresh marijuana, in many cases, actually lowers ANA levels. ANAs are the antibodies that are literally killing my connective tissue (causing the pain and inflammation). Furthermore, the juice has little or no THC, meaning that it won’t get you high— aka, I can use it while still being a responsible parent.
I’ve had several people tell me I ought to start juicing. My boyfriend says it every time I smoke (because smoking is really bad on my lungs, which is why I usually eat edibles). And as soon as I move to Colorado, I will. I’m glad you mentioned it, and thank you very much for the title of the documentary— I wasn’t aware of that! I’m going to have to steal someone’s Netflix and watch it sometime :)
