Curious minds need to know how medicinal cannabis for health and wellness can help them heal. Given that over half of the U.S. now has access to legalized medical marijuana, High Minded Souls provides a documented source of balanced and practical information. Written from the perspective of a Certified Cannabis Educator, and not as a marketer, the book unravels and illuminates many obscured, yet important, facts about the cannabis plant and industry; marketing materials may under-report such facts and nuances depending on their depth of knowledge.

High Minded Souls is a content-rich, 108-page ebook written as 27 bite-size essays:  a must-have for anyone who wants to enhance their well-being by using cannabis medicinally. Essays cover the waterfront and are in no particular sequence, including topics from: the differences between adult use (recreational) and medicinal use, why cannabis helps so many different conditions, the growing demographic of seniors, legality concerns, the scientific evidence that cannabis kills cancer cells, the dark side of cannabis-use disorder, cannabis vs. alcohol, non-cannabis enhancements, and to the numerous evidence-based cannabis benefits for body, mind and soul. Mood disorders, their reasons and remedies, are highlighted throughout.

Advance Praise for High Minded Souls

Your book is both brilliant and easy to read. I appreciate your humane and down to earth approach to this important medicine.

Susan's style is authoritative, and informative and I could viscerally feel her empathy throughout her essays - her passion to share and educate.

Her ability to balance what she knows with real-world practicality is refreshing. I would like to see more people exposed to her writings as I am also convinced that benefiting from cannabis medicine is all about education.

Susan is determined to identify, address and unravel the stigma that has been attached to cannabis since its prohibition - the key to ushering this issue back to the forefront of the conversation regarding health, politics and society as a whole.

I was compelled to read her works, and learned a great amount.

We’ve come a long way Baby!

The cannabis world of today is light years away from the marijuana days of the 60’s and 70’s! Back then, a whole generation of teens and young adults were introduced to fun and mind-altering experiences with cannabis and a host of other psychedelic substances. I feel strongly that these experiences changed the trajectory of my life and the lives of many others in the Baby Boomer generation in both subtle and dramatic ways.

This current decade of legalization of cannabis is spreading across the country like wildfire and marks a similar period of expansion and dramatic change for individuals and our society at large. Cannabis legalization is a true grass roots phenomenon.

For those of us who came of age during that era, it was a time of exploration, expansion and breaking out of old ways of seeing the world around us. It was a time of war as well as economic and social uncertainty and we questioned where we belonged in a culture that didn’t reflect our changing values. We wondered about the health of the planet and our children. A familiar theme reverberates again in today’s world.

Eventually, the demands of adult life, work, raising children and frequent relocation took over, and for many, cannabis took a back seat if it remained in our awareness at all. It was simply too unpredictable, unavailable and felt too dangerous to pursue an illegal substance. Nevertheless, there was an on-going underground passionate pursuit by those who sensed that cannabis was important for the health of many. I am grateful to all of them and the sacrifices they made for a cause greater than themselves.

Fast-forward to today. To understand what is happening - that includes looking back at history – we can now look forward to a better future with the help of cannabis. What is this sacred plant? Is it a placebo, medicine, drug or an herbal supplement for health and well-being? For one thing, the old name of marijuana is being phased out and cannabis, which is its authentic, botanical name, is taking precedent. A whole new vocabulary is emerging, and it can be somewhat daunting to take it in and to make sense of it.

Cannabis use today is complex and rapidly expanding all over the world. One of the last counts I read is that over 180 million people worldwide are using cannabis in one form or another for a plethora of reasons and the fastest growing demographic are those of us over the age of 55, the Boomers.

With this growth of use comes an exponential increase in confusion, misinformation, and contradictions, along with accounts of cannabis’ positive influence in the lives of people of all ages, backgrounds, life challenges and life-threatening illnesses.

In fact, it was a significant health crisis that led me to seek help in this new world of legal cannabis when most everything else I tried was not helping. I was losing so much ground in both my physical and mental health that I feared for the premature loss of my life. My energy was diminished to the point that it felt like I was running on empty.

In June of 2017, cannabis came along at just the right time. It turned my life around so quickly that within three days I felt an unmistakable benefit and regained hope that I would begin to heal. Looking back, now years later, I know that cannabis is playing a significant role in supporting my health and wellness each and every day. I am one of the fortunate ones to have such a significant shift so quickly. For others it can be a more gradual process, yet no less helpful.

The impact of that first experience using a modern cannabis oil extraction was life changing for my physical and mental health as well as for my work life. Having been in adult education for decades (personal and spiritual growth), it made sense to educate my fellow baby boomers about this amazing plant.
