When remarkable women unite behind a noble cause, mountains move easily and seemingly impossible results are achieved.
Being a woman comes with wonderful qualities that are not just essential to be a loving and devoted partner and mother, and to create and maintain a supportive and loving family atmosphere, but if we look more closely, the same very powerful feminine qualities are also responsible for major changes in history, as well as for political movements around the world.
The formation of the Canna Nanna’s is a great example of this in Australia, demonstrating the feminine energy at work.
Four influential wise women coming together from the cannabis community with a very strong determination to end the 80 years long prohibition around cannabis and to educate elderly Australians about the health and medicinal benefits of the cannabis and hemp plant. By touring the country and holding workshops in local community centres, retirement villages, nursing homes, sporting clubs, the Canna Nanna’s are teaching the older generations of Australians how to incorporate hemp into their diet and help them to enjoy a better quality life during their senior years by the use of medicinal cannabis.
These brave mothers and grandmothers come from all walks of life, having their own personal reasons for joining the Canna Nanna’s. They either have experienced incredible improvements and benefits by using cannabis to treat their own conditions, or seen others being successfully treated or healed from serious illnesses, often when traditional treatments and mainstream medicines failed. Some lost close family members and friends to conditions that could have been overcome with the use of medical cannabis had it been legally available. They’ve undeniably experienced the miraculous healing effects of this plant in some shape or form and have developed a passion to fight for it.
These days, it does not take much research for anyone to find out the illegality of cannabis has nothing to do with its effects on people or psychoactive properties. The prohibition was largely based on lies and false reports to serve selfish business interests in the US back in the 1930’s.
It is becoming common knowledge that the war on drugs is failing and the current drug laws are making enormous damage to societies.
Patients and families are being prosecuted and becoming criminals by trying to heal themselves or their loved ones with a use of a plant based medicine that no-one has ever died from.
Motherly instincts and feminine intuitions paired with the overwhelming evidence of the healing power of cannabis and the hundreds of patient success stories coming out every day, the Canna Nanna’s are destined for great things.
“Wolves and Women have much in common. Both share a wild spirit. Women and Wolves are instinctual creatures, able to sense the unseen. They are loyal, protective of their packs and of their pups. They are wild and beautiful. Both have been hunted and captured. Even in captivity, one can see in the eyes of a Woman, or a Wolf, the longing to run free, and the determination that should the opportunity arise, Whoosh, they will be gone…..”
