Expect Joy

Gaudium means "joy" in Latin.

Have you been looking for joy?

Are you curious about the health benefits of cannabis and CBD? I was too. My doctor’s attempts to cure my psoriasis were actually making my skin worse. After a few disappointing dermatologist visits I gave up on the expensive, painful “cures,” and started my research. Putting hemp oil on my sores helped! In fact it helped a lot more than anything else I’d tried, but I wasn’t that surprised. I already knew the healing wonders of cannabis: a college friend battled cancer and swore that my edibles helped her through chemotherapy. She said it wasn’t just a buffer against the nausea and exhaustion, but she also felt less depressed.

Still, I wanted to know more about curing or at least calming my psoriasis. I called upon my friends who were medical caregivers in non-prohibition states. I wasn’t surprised when the CBD balms and salves they gave me did more to soothe and calm my skin than anything I had tried.

The anti-inflammatory balms also helped general aches and pains, and more impressively my blown out “rower’s knee” than anything that’s FDA approved.

My story isn’t unique, but as a teacher I knew that I had an opportunity to help people understand cannabis rather than fear it. I sensed a growing obligation to teach people about the healing possibilities of this plant, and in that moment Gaudium Enterprises was born: A place where you could learn and feel safe.
