Hello! Good afternoon! Welcome to Splimm: the world’s first Pot and Parenting Newsletter. We’re so happy to make this for you all, and we think we’ve made it at just the right time.
It’s scary being a parent today. It was pretty scary yesterday too. Truthfully, it’s been terrifying at least once a day since the first day. We have to pay so much attention to everything! Awareness is the primary requirement for proper parenting. Strive to be conscious of as much as possible. Make sure to see the dangers but also the opportunities for growth and learning and having fun. Try to know the person you are guiding and the person you are as guide. It’s a lot to negotiate, and it never stays the same. As soon as you survey the land, it shifts and you have to start over. Being a parent means always thinking and always adapting.
Parenting also requires a nuanced understanding of growth. Accepting that sometimes development is nonlinear and progress is slow. So slow it seems like it’s not moving. Or maybe even like it’s going backwards. There are days when it feels like it just keeps getting harder, that we’ll never resolve this issue or turn that corner. But it’s always progress…even if we don’t recognize it yet.
Take cannabis, for example. Ten years ago they told us we would never see it legalized, that it wasn’t really medicine. Just a crazy West Coast experiment. But today states like North Dakota, Florida, and Arkansas believe that cannabis can heal us, our parents, and our children, and 20 percent of the country is more than willing to provide it for sale to adults over 21.
The Splimm Team has known about cannabis for a long time, and because of that relationship, people like to ask us questions. We love to talk, so we enjoy answering them. With California and Massachusetts voting to end prohibition, we know there are going to be many more parents with many more questions.
Don’t worry, parents, we got this.
We’re here for you!
Whether you’re new to the plant or new to the kids, Splimm is here for you. If you’ve moved to a legal state or just got your first recommendation from a doctor, Splimm is here for you. Want to know how to talk to your kids about their cannabis use? Or your more appropriate cannabis use? Splimm is here for you. Do you simply need some advice on how to stay cool through it all? Splimm is here for you, because we trust that real progress is achieved together and that, deep down, you’ve always been cool.
It’s our time now, no matter how hard we might have to work. Cannabis has shown us that drastic change is possible, regardless of the perceived obstacles. That by engaging in meaningful discussions, by asking questions and listening to the answers, we expand our understanding of each other and continue to evolve.
We believe that cannabis is a unifier. We believe that cannabis has the power to change minds. We believe that when a diverse group of people comes together to share cannabis and ideas, good things happen. Splimm can be that place for all of us.
Welcome! Thank you for coming! Please have some cannabis!
