Why an Unconventional Marijuana Urn Could be the Perfect Choice
Those of us whose loved ones embraced cannabis use as part of their lifestyle will attest that they never really worried too much about what other people might think. Marching to the beat of their own drummers, they enjoyed their own unconventional and perhaps even counter-cultural way of life. Maybe they even got a little thrill out of shocking others with their viewpoints and habits! If that describes your loved one, what better way to honor them than to choose an equally unconventional marijuana urn for their final resting place?
The Reasons Why
There are many reasons why people may include marijuana as part of their daily rhythms, most of which fall under two main categories: therapeutic use and recreational use.
Therapeutic Marijuana Use
Over the last few decades, medical marijuana has been increasingly available across the United States. In fact, as of this writing, two-thirds of all American states have approved marijuana for medical use.
Though its precise applications are still developing, medical marijuana has been prescribed to treat a variety of diseases and conditions, including the following:
- Appetite loss
- Crohn's disease
- Mental health conditions like schizophrenia and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Multiple sclerosis
- Muscle spasms
For those who suffered severe symptoms, especially related to PTSD and chronic pain, the marijuana leaf has come to represent for them relief and balm from suffering. In a similar way, if you should choose to memorialize your loved one in a unique marijuana urn, the symbol could take on a similar meaning for you.
Recreational Marijuana Use
The movement to legalize marijuana for recreational use is continuing to grow. Although we will not say too much about that here, we would like to recognize that while there are many differences of opinion on this issue, it is your right to honor your loved one and their chosen way of life however you see fit. If they enjoyed recreational marijuana use, we support your right to commemorate that by offering our unconventional marijuana urns for that precise purpose.
The Importance of Memorialization
When the time comes to lay our loved ones to rest, we may find ourselves so wrapped in grief that we don't have much energy to invest in memorialization. While this dynamic is understandable, it's also dangerous.
According to experts, memorialization is deeply connected to experiencing a healthy grieving process:
In fact, social sciences believe that memorialization is a crucial part of the grieving process. In the case of unexpected deaths, such as motor accidents, scientists have noticed the phenomenon of "spontaneous memorialization." Mourners will often leave flowers and letters at the site of the incident, even creating "road side memorials" as tribute to those passed. This process may help the living show their enduring affection and appreciation, while coping with such tragedy in the process.
Memorializing our loved ones in a way that honors who they were in this life doesn't just matter because of them: it matters because of us. Choosing an unconventional marijuana urn to memorialize your loved one might be just what's needed to help you start the healing process.
Grief and Remembrance
Losing a friend, family member, or loved one is always a painful experience. Naturally, we all process that pain differently. If your loved one was the type never to care what anyone else thought, who perhaps even loved to thumb their nose at society, one of our unconventional marijuana urns might be just the thing to help you honor them while also standing as a visual reminder to you of all the reasons your loved one made you smile.
