Get High Tonight and Netflix, Kiss the Ground
Last week Elon Musk announced that he would give $100 million to the innovator of a technology that could capture the most carbon.
I could save Elon a lot of money! All he has to do is smoke a joint with Kimbal and watch the new Netflix documentary Kiss the Ground. They might walk away from that film thinking, like me, that our solution to carbon capture from the upper atmosphere is fairly simple. It is called regenerative farming and it is the antithesis of traditional, American agriculture. It has roots, literally, that pre-date the American experiment.
For whatever reason, American farming involves killing everything in sight through tilling and then the application of pesticides. John Steinbeck’s classic novel, “Grapes of Wrath”, is perhaps the most up front and brutal assessment of this style of farming. Astonishingly, Steinbeck first published his book in 1939 and this style of farming remains predominant in America today!
There is a movement for change afoot, however, and that’s where Kiss the Ground comes in. With Woody Harrelson narrating, Kiss the Ground dramatically introduces its viewers to regenerative agriculture and to some of the players behind the movement. From an education standpoint, this documentary is mind blowing on a level with the learnings Americans recently gained about stock shorts and the existence of hedge funds.
According to the documentary, healthy soil stores carbon. In fact, healthy soils pull carbon from the upper atmosphere! And get this, healthy soil is our solution to climate change and possibly more, including emerging issues like food nutrition and can even improve the livelihood and security of our farmers! The possibilities with cannabis are limitless! But don’t take it from me, smoke a doobie tonight and Netflix, Kiss the Ground so you can draw your own opinion.
If you want suggestions for doobies grown by clean cannabis producers, brands like Falcanna, Soulshine and Walden for starters, then go see the folks at Canna West Seattle today or shop online for in-store or curbside pickup!
Here’s a teaser in regards to regenerative farming:
