Organic Care of California BLOG

 Here is a few Blogs written by the owners Chaz & Shantel Cornellier about the industry and things they have experienced or learned while owning a cannabis delivery service in Chico, Ca in 2017 under Prop 215 and then moving to Sacramento to own a State Liscensed Delivery, C9-0000003-LIC, immediately in 2018. It has been a crazy ride and Chaz loves to explain what the market is doing and how he sees the company doing in the near future.

Breaking Down Barriers: Overcoming the Stigma Against Cannabis

 Cannabis, a plant that has been used for medicinal, recreational, and industrial purposes for centuries, has long been shrouded in controversy and stigmatization. The stigma surrounding cannabis has prevented society from fully realizing its potential benefits, both medically and economically. However, in recent years, there has been a growing movement to challenge these misconceptions and promote a more informed and rational perspective on cannabis. This blog explores the stigma against cannabis and the steps being taken to overcome it.


Understanding the Stigma:

The stigma against cannabis is deeply rooted in history, politics, and cultural bias. It has been fueled by misconceptions, fear-mongering, and a lack of education. Some common misconceptions that have contributed to the stigma include the belief that cannabis is a "gateway drug," that it is highly addictive, and that it has no legitimate medical uses. These misconceptions have led to the criminalization and demonization of cannabis in many parts of the world.

Overcoming the Stigma:


Education and Research:

One of the most effective ways to overcome the stigma against cannabis is through education and research. Numerous studies have demonstrated the potential medical benefits of cannabis in treating a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain to epilepsy. Advocacy groups and researchers are working tirelessly to disseminate this information and dispel myths surrounding the plant.

Legalization and Regulation:

The legalization and regulation of cannabis in many parts of the world have played a significant role in reducing its stigma. When governments take a proactive approach to regulate cannabis, it shifts the perception from that of an illicit substance to a controlled and taxed commodity. This change in perspective fosters a more informed and responsible approach to its use.

Medical Cannabis Programs:

The establishment of medical cannabis programs in various states and countries has been a crucial step in normalizing cannabis use. These programs allow patients to access cannabis for legitimate medical purposes under the guidance of healthcare professionals, reducing the stigma associated with its use.

Public Awareness Campaigns:

Public awareness campaigns are instrumental in challenging cannabis stigma. These campaigns aim to provide accurate information about cannabis, highlight its potential benefits, and reduce the fear associated with its use. They also encourage open discussions and promote responsible consumption.

Destigmatization Efforts:

Numerous celebrities, athletes, and public figures have come forward to share their positive experiences with cannabis, contributing to its destigmatization. Their stories humanize cannabis users and challenge stereotypes.

Economic Benefits:

Recognizing the economic benefits of the cannabis industry, including job creation and tax revenue, has helped shift public opinion. Many governments have realized the potential economic gains and are embracing the cannabis industry as a legitimate source of income.


Overcoming the stigma against cannabis is an ongoing process, but progress is being made. Through education, research, regulation, and destigmatization efforts, society is gradually shifting its perception of cannabis from a dangerous drug to a valuable and versatile plant. As more people become informed about its benefits and responsible use, the stigma against cannabis will continue to erode, allowing society to fully harness its potential for the betterment of individuals and communities alike.
