I often get letters from folks sharing their experiences… I call them “Field Reports.” And these field reports offer spectacular insights and musings that answer questions that many others have on their mind. So I’m sharing one with you today.
I’d love to get back into using cannabis but I find even small doses give me panic attacks. When I was younger I could smoke all day then all of a sudden panic attacks started happening. It didn’t matter what strain I used even when combined with a high CBD dose. Do you know why this happens? Is it physiological or psychological? For me it feels like the latter.
Also, I’m looking to start microdosing psilocybin where can I learn more about your program?

I’d trust your intuition about it being psychological.
I’d also be interested in knowing whether you’ve observed an uptick in anxiety when you’re not under the influence of cannabis? The reason I ask is that, in our emotions and trauma recovery work, we include the intentional use of cannabis (THC and CBD) because it typically amplifies emotions that are “alive” within us at any given time.
This is important because we want to bring the troubling emotions(s) to the surface as we proactively work to connect with the feelings in order to release them. When we pair our blend of ancient and modern Western, and Eastern healing techniques with the judicious use of cannabis, the plant can amplify the emotion (i.e. anxiety, anger, self-doubt, guilt, etc) so it becomes VERY clear what the feeling is and what it’s telling you – so you can release it.
