Three men in hoodies burst into the Recreational Cannabis Farmers Market on Old Highway 2 in Shannonville and start pepper-spraying the man and woman who are staffing the store.

Later in the video, the male employee grabs a large bong and starts swinging at the would-be thieves, then smashes it over one of them.

Joshua Lewis-Brant and his wife were the employees working that afternoon and they said they sensed something suspicious when a car drove up to the front door with its licence plate covered.

“My wife looked out the door and saw three masked people approaching the door and she turned to me and said that these people were up to no good which gave a couple of seconds to prepare for what I had to do,” said Lewis-Brant.

Brant, his wife, and lifelong friend and co-worker Midi Chief say they are using this experience and other crimes that they’ve had to deal with while living on Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory to inspire the music they are creating to change the mindsets of people.

“I have this fire burning within me and I just want to share my passion for my people and create music that can make a real difference. Music has the power to fix issues,” said Chief.

Chief and Brant are currently working on lyrics for an album that they say will focus on their upbringing and what needs to be done to reverse pre-existing stereotypes.

What is a Sativa?

Sativa strains of medicinal marijuana are usually uplifting and stimulating. If you’ve ever smoked or ingested cannabis that makes everything funny and puts you in a great mood, it was probably from a Sativa strain. It creates a feeling of comfort, non-drowsy, and usually introspective highs. The effects of smoking or ingesting a Sativa makes them particularly popular among artists and creatives. The most popular medicinal benefits range from treating mental and behavioral problems, to treating depression, stress and ADHD.

What is an Indica?

The major difference between Sativa’s and Indica’s is while a Sativa can make you feel alert, active, and aware, an Indica will have a relaxing feel on the body. The physical effects of an Indica strain commonly include a drowsy and mellow mood with stress and pain relief. Indica’s are one of the more suggested strains when using it for medicinal purposes as it effectively treats sleeping disorders such as insomnia, fibromyalgia, body aches and pains. Indica’s are also commonly used for treating Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, Fibromyalgia and Lupus

Why Choose Hybrid?

The benefits to smoking or ingesting a Hybrid strain are simply as follows. Hybrid’s offer the best of both worlds combining several qualities of each containing strain. Some Hybrid’s are Indica dominant, which will offer pain relief and / or mellow mood, however may contain up to 50% Sativa so it will not make you too drowsy. Other’s may offer a Sativa dominant strain, which will encompass several calming benefits and pain relief, but also give a mellow, yet energetic high.
