When we think about taking medicine, we normally don't associate it with ingesting loads of sugar too. Why is this same logic not generally applied to edibles? MoonMan's Mistress is a company focused on pairing the benefits of whole-plant cannabis extraction and clean eating. "All our ingredients are intelligently chosen, locally sourced and quality tested to provide you with the healthiest medicinal edible available." Organic, non-GMO ingredients are crucial in the making of these paleo, dairy-free, soy-free and low glycemic medicated bites.
After being diagnosed with Celiac and Hashimoto's Disease, diseases that affect the immune system, Liz decided that western medecine had failed her after a long and trying battle with pharmaceuticals. She finally found relief when she made switch to clean eating and cooking, living a very paleo-centric lifestyle and eating nutrient dense food. Since this change, Liz says she now feels better at 37 than she did at 27, when she was originally diagnosed. Health and fitness had always been a focus in Jamel's life, and after finishing his career in the military and corporate America he decided to follow his passions and become a personal trainer. Jamel uses Cannabis for pain management and inflammation, but recognizes the variety of ailments and individuals that can be cured by Cannabis. These two saw a void for truly health-centric edibles in the Cannabis industry, and their expertise in clean eating made them the right people to fill it. But these two do more than just make edibles, along with their non-medicated baking company and digital detox fitness retreats, adding the goodness of Cannabis to these was just another way to help improve lives. They focus on helping clients reset their rhythm and find their balance. The key to their partnership is a shared lifestyle and set of values. They really do practice what they preach, and stand by Cannabis and food as medicine.
Pharmaceuticals stop working, and we even build a tolerance to Cannabis, so finding alternatives is key! Clean eating is a lifestyle choice. It is NOT a diet. This lifestyle focuses on eating whole, unrefined foods. Great care and consideration go into the ingredients chosen to make these edibles truly medicinal. The entire Cannabis plant is used during extraction. This ensures every ounce of goodness in the stems, leaf, roots as well as the flowers is used. Organic, sustainable and California sun grown Cannabis is what's used here, and I believe it is very fitting for the work being done. Just after launching in 2015, they were awarded Healthiest Edible by Edible's List Magazine for their Trail Mix Super Nova Cookie.
Jamel & Liz believe (and I agree) that Cannabis should always be considered a wellness product, and there will always be a need for healthy and effective edibles. Through the trials and tribulations this industry brings, they believe they are here to stay! And I definitely think it's important to support companies who are really out to help people. They call themselves healers, not dealers. As they continue to grow, they hope to work with patients more directly. To focus on the education of Cannabis, food, cooking and training to obtain a healthy and comfortable balance and rhythm.
