Happy Weedsday! I hope today finds all of you well. If not, let me tell you about something that could make you feel so much better.
As a cannabis activist, I always hear of different and amazing stories from people who choose to medicate with herbs instead of utilizing more common pharmaceutical solutions. So I’m sure that many of you are familiar with the assorted ways to partake of cannabis such as smoking it or ingesting it through edibles, but have you ever heard that you can also rub it into your belly button and see amazing results, as well? Sounds strange, I know!
I, of course, had to know more about this so I called up my friend, Dr. Uma Dhanabalan of Uplifting Health And Wellness (TotalHealthCareTHC.com) to ask her what she thought. Her response was “Absolutely! Use it!”
She also explained to me that in her culture and in other cultures across the globe they know of this method and use it for healing purposes. She also explained that applying oils such as CBD, THC and other essential oils through the belly button via the Pechoti is common practice to address many different physical and mental ailments in these other cultures and countries. Applying oil to the belly button to be absorbed by the Pechoti gland has been used to treat everything from dry eyes and poor eyesight to joint pains, lethargy, gastrointestinal issues, and much more. That’s pretty amazing, don’t you agree?
Somehow, this knowledge was lost on many of us here in the United States.
Most simply put, the Pechoti is a gland that is right behind the belly button. While a woman is pregnant, nutrients are transferred from the mother to her fetus through the umbilical cord. At the end of that umbilical cord is the Pechoti gland which remains after birth. Every human alive has a Pechoti gland which is connected to more than 72,000 nerves that run throughout the body to various organs and tissues. Talk about a connected gland! That’s pretty amazing.
By rubbing cannabis oil to the belly button and utilizing the Pechoti delivery method, the cannabinoids actually have the ability to reach every single part of your body. This is something that no other delivery method can provide.
Decades of prohibition have buried this plant and traditional consumption methods such as the Pechoti delivery. I encourage everyone to try this. I sure have!
