It’s a wintry Saturday night in Brooklyn. I’ve decided to tip a Chinese delivery driver generously for delivering dinner to my doorstep rather than cooking anything nutritious. I’m puffing on my Mimosa CBD Vape while watching old episodes of Friends, mindlessly scrolling through my favorite astrology account on Instagram. I had to stop, smile and think to myself, “Wow. I’m such a millennial.”

What a time to be alive. We can get food delivered practically anywhere. We don’t need to leave our house if we want to be entertained. Age-old hemp remedies are being packaged into pretty Vapes, Oils and Edibles for our convenient enjoyment. And seemingly innocent astrology memes help us make sense of a world on fire, connected by an invisible world wide web.

Despite all the misconceptions that younger generations are spoiled and lazy, Millennials and Gen Z are actually more significantly stressed out than older generations. Worry has been etched into our subconscious. Since we were born, the news cycle has been spewing out horrible shit that we can’t really do much about. On top of that, our childhood was ripe with cultural drama: a stock market crash in ’08 that obliterated millions of jobs, the student loan debt crisis, the election of our first Black president followed by… a questionable, orange, toupeed candidate spreading coded hate speech. We’re the generation that lost our faith in the systems that are supposed to protect us.

It’s only natural that we turn to two cultural staples to help us feel better: CBD and Astrology. CBD, short for Cannabidiol, is an active ingredient derived from hemp plants proven to reduce inflammation, relieve stress and anxiety, and soothe muscular pain with very little side effects. Folks who can’t afford expensive pain medications are turning to CBD to provide sweet relief at a fraction of the price.

Astrology, on the other hand, is a study of the stars and planets that help us make sense of personality traits, human interactions and collective generational emotions. When world leaders threaten nuclear wars and we feel completely out of control, we can easily blame it on a Mercury retrograde and remember that the stars have greater things in store for us in the future. Astrology helps us accept the world as it is, take inventory of what we can and can’t control, and figure out a way to move forward.

Long story short: CBD and Astrology are powerful antidotes that help us cope and make sense of the world around us. Next time you’re stressed, tune into your favorite astrology meme account and drop a few mg’s of Lemon Lime CBD Oil under your tongue. Watch your stress and worry about the world’s problems melt away. Instead of thinking of the world as a hot garbage can on fire, you’ll see the world as it is. Just a place to live in this lifetime, enjoy the little pleasures in life that are within our reach, and use our power to make changes where we can.
