Dash of Flower was originally just a private outlet for me to combine my love of cooking with my appreciation for the cannabis plant, it’s medicinal benefits, and using it as an ingredient. Most people know cannabis to be a recreational vice (and it is a much safer + healthier one at that) But I sadly don’t believe most are educated, much less even aware about the medicinal properties of cannabis. After ample amounts of research on studies, data, the body’s endocannabinoid system and just my own personal experiences, I became so frustrated with the stereotype that is associated with cannabis consumers. Even more so, the unfair judgment one receives from choosing this more holistic route for their well-being. Cannabis studies have proven it to be beneficial in so many ways, but the falsely driven societal stigmas are preventing this information from being widely discussed. I truly believe that’s because most people are afraid of the backlash and judgment. So with all of that, my hope is to use this space not only as a creative outlet to share recipes, but also as a space that will shed some positive light on this strangely still taboo subject. I’m happy you’re here!
