A Contrasting Cannabis Musing.
Black Friday was born from individuals realizing that the *holiday season* could turn their profits from a negative margin to a positive one, though I’ve always found the term *Black Friday* to be ominous. As a minimalist I generally stay away from the swarming shoppers, but on this Black Friday I’m playing it a little bit differently! Is it time for me to buckle down and join the throngs of shoppers, for how else can I really gain an insight into the shopping season?
Black is the absence of light without black there is no contrast, which is why it is an accurate name for the holiday shopping sprees. Black Friday is the absence of conscious shopping, it is where the line of *need and want* has no definitive contrast. So what’s this got to do with weed man? Cannabis opens the door to shift the changes in your perception. So I’m not saying “ Don’t go Black Friday Shopping”, I’m saying “ Is there a way to consciously shop on Black Friday?”.
It comes down to value, much like cannabis actually! Recently at Foster Buds we’ve received some decadent Goji/ DC, its sappy stickiness paints your fingertips with trichcomes. These darker green buds dance on top of your palate with notes of honeydew and butter. What I enjoy most about this delicious selection is the value stemming from its high CBD properties. It’s lends a beautiful ascension into bliss while liberating you from pain, now THAT is valuable herb!
In closing, on this Black Friday I’m changing it up! I’m changing my programming of *buy buy buy* to *value value value*. Cannabis has shown me that it’s not about the *numbers*/*stats*, at the end of the day it’s about what increases the quality of your life. The additional perspective of Cannabis has always helped me gain insight from the most mundane things, to the truly profound watershed moments. As your shopping for this Black Friday take time to enjoy some cannabis, and ask yourself “ Are these products really adding value to my life?”. I’m bias, but if you’re buying cannabis the answer is yes ;).
