Words of Weedsdom
A memoir about smoking pot, self-discovery, and existentialism
by Cee D

I had become the princess and the pea, feeling even the smallest sensations, and everything seemed to slow down around me. I was aware of everything, and every sound, smell, and movement triggered my consciousness like a factory hard-wired for efficiency. I was detached from reality, yet still in possession of my every thought and movement . . . This is what it was to be high. As an introverted millennial growing up in the nineties, being a child of divorce and mental illness made Cee D believe that self-neglect and isolation would keep her family together. Pursuing a nursing career which continued to focus on others at her own expense, she sought psychedelic distraction from a disappointing adulthood, and turned to drugs. Discovering newfound wisdom—or “weedsdom”—through a sect of spirituality that she lovingly refers to as “Bud-dism”, the author demonstrates how psychoactive substances, particularly cannabis, may shed light on our traumas, and can be used as a tool for self-actualization and the pursuit of individual happiness. Narrated with the perfect mix of humorous anecdotes and reflective wonder, Words of Weedsdom combines Cee D’s life-changing introduction into cannabis culture with a wider commentary on the drug, including its history, as well as its effects on the mind and body. Whether you are a cannabis user, cannabis curious, or a cannabis critic, this candid and light-hearted memoir addresses stigmatization surrounding the plant, and challenges the stereotypical image of “stoners” portrayed in popular media.

"the denial of emotion is the key to transcending the troubles and pains of the material world...if thou art pained by any external thing, it is not this that disturbs thee, but thy own judgment about it. And it is in thy power to wipe out this judgement now" —Marcus Aurelius Meditations volume VIII

Cee D began journaling when she started smoking weed, and found that as her introspective thoughts expanded to reflect on humanity and modern society, her perspective on cannabis use drastically shifted. She wanted to share her story, hoping it may dispel the misconceptions surrounding the plant and its recreational users. Cee D has been a Registered Nurse in Canada for over ten years, and attests that her cannabis use has helped her grow more than her academic pursuits have, up to, and including her post-graduate education. She lives in Toronto, Ontario with her two rescue cats. Follow her continued reflections with @WordsofWeedzdom on Instagram.
