Cannabis has garnered the trust of many people across the world. Thanks to the healing properties of cannabidiol or CBD, a non-psychoactive substance found in hemp, many people have been using CBD products to combat diseases and improve their overall health.
While many people have incorporated CBD in their everyday lives in the form of creams, tincture, capsule, oil, gummy bears, etc, there are some who might have taken an extra step to show their love for CBD.
It’s not uncommon that people often name their kids after something they love- Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s love of a certain fruit, for example – so this couple’s kids’ names shouldn’t be all too surprising!
Excited uncle Fred Quinn shared the news on February 11 on his Twitter that his brother recently had his second child, and there was a particular name theme that he had been following to call his kids. Fred’s first niece was born in October 2018, and Fred had enthusiastically twitter about her unique name as well.
Following the birth of his second niece this month, Fred replied to his old tweet from two years ago. With the original tweet receiving almost 4,000 likes, his recent tweet garnered 81,500 likes itself, providing that his brother’s naming technique is certainly popular.
After his recent Tweet, Fred shared a screenshot of a text with his brother, Victor Groce, displaying his newborn niece’s picture announcing that she’s called Indica. On the other hand, his first niece is called Sativa. Both Indica and Sativa are two species of cannabis plants.
Apparently, Victor and his partner have a deep love for cannabis and paid their tribute to their appreciation of marijuana while naming their children. When prompted to confirm whether or not Victor has intentionally named his kids after cannabis strains, his brother, Fred confirmed the news while saying he does think the names genuinely sound good too.
Fred said that Victor was the source behind these names and his love for marijuana, and the fact that the words themselves sound so good led to him naming his first daughter SaTiva in 2018, and subsequently his second daughter Indica.
Victor figures that most of the young kids might not know the meaning of the names of his daughter, so bullying shouldn’t be much of a problem. He didn’t want to name his daughters’ marijuana straight away, said Fred.
Further, he said that hopefully, these two beautiful girls with unique names will be a symbol of how beautiful and harmless marijuana can actually be. He went on to say how he felt a range of different emotions after his brother told him the name of his first daughter two years ago.
Fred said that when he was told about the birth fo SaTiva two years back, he went through a range of emotions. He was shocked, angry, and then truly honored as he realized who his brother is and how passionate he is about marijuana’s legalization, and when he finally saw SaTiva, he fell in love right away.
Since he doesn’t live in the same city as his brother and his girlfriend, Fred didn’t even know that they were pregnant. When he got to know about the new child and Indica’s name, he was overwhelmed and all he could do was smile.
Whether or not you like these names, you have to agree that these girls are pretty darn beautiful and cute. It’s safe to say that they might be the only ones in their classes with such unique names.
Growing Love for Weed
From fighting with the symptoms of life-threatening ailments such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, Tourette, or epilepsy to dealing with everyday muscle pain, stress, anxiety, insomnia, spasms, etc, CBD is a potent substance that helps in improving the health of the user.
CBD is a compound found in hemp, a Cannabis Sativa plant, and is widely popular amongst people who deal with mental health issues. Recently, two cannabis-based medicines were approved by the NHS – Epidyolex, and Sativex.
The former is used to alleviate the symptoms of two rare and severe forms of epilepsy in children known as Dravet’s syndrome and Lennox Gastaut syndrome. Epidyolex contains CBD and is free from THC concentration. On the other hand, Sative is a mouth spray consisting of both CBD and THC and is used for muscle stiffness or spasms, also known as spasticity in muscle sclerosis.
While the NHS has approved both of these cannabis-based medicines, the doctors are not completely permitted to prescribe them to patients. This has created friction between patients who need such medication to get better and the doctors who are held by the officials.
