C'mon, let's get casually baked.
On Casually Baked: the potcast I'll teach you how to enjoy a functional high and educate and empower you to take control of your own health and well-being in a fun and natural way.
Casually Baked, the potcast, is an extension of the conversations and experiences I have around cannabis for wellness. As the modern cannabis culture evolves, it's interesting to discover how and why people like you are incorporating marijuana into their lives. And because the plant is complicated and the culture is nuanced, there are always questions and experiments and cautionary tales around every corner. I want to lighten the stigma and build your canna confidence!
The Reviews Are In!
I'm in my mid-sixties and have not been a cannabis user for 30 years. After the legalization of weed and due to some health issues I've recently been experimenting with some of the oils, topicals and using the vape pen. I've had a hip replacement and also suffer from arthritis and knee pain. The muscle rub has been amazing and given me some much-needed localized pain relief. At this time in my life, it has become incumbent on me to care for my aging parents (86 and 89-year-olds). As you can imagine my days are stressful and physically demanding. Using the pen has helped me relax and stay calm. Having access to these therapeutic options has been a blessing to me, and Johanna has been invaluable in explaining and educating me about all the different options available that fit my lifestyle. She's helped me gain the confidence to use cannabis for wellness and experiment without fear.
Jo GETS it.
You want to be Casually Baked without compromising professionalism. You want to get more connected to the world around you- not less. I'm late to the party, in cannabis terms.
Athlete, Professional, Mindful Seeker - just getting started with cannabis as a lifestyle tool to stay present, avoid prescriptions, and live as fully as possible.
Jo and Casually Baked are my guidelines for how to navigate this new terrain and max my performance and enjoyment of every area of my life. And you must tune into Jo's 'PotCast.' She cracks me up!
Best Email Ever
So I gave my doctor/surgeon a copy of Pineapple magazine a few weeks ago, and he had a chance to discuss it with me yesterday. He mentioned your article "Most Important Meeting of the Day" in particular. He said it really challenged his ideas about cannabis. But in a good way. He has always been holding a somewhat negative view of MJ, but after reading your article, he said he had to re-think his philosophy. He said he had thought that smokers were all potheads and wouldn't have anything to say other than some stoner babble. But when he read your article he was somewhat startled to read such an articulate and reasonable voice informing him how natural it could all be. He could now see that there was no further reason to denigrate or fear cannabis as harmful. So congrats on that. My doctor is an incredibly intelligent and talented surgeon and for him to mention this to me was a statement to your talents and a verification of your mission meeting your goals.
High fives all around!
