Carolyn Adams Garcia was affectionately monikered Mountain Girl by the Intrepid Traveler and His Band of Merry Pranksters.
At the age of 17, I got a job at the Organic Chemistry lab at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. It was 1963, and this was my first job far away from home.
The magic happened, and I was swept into the mystical path of opening and becoming, a blend of music, exploration and science emerging in California.
Joining Ken Kesey’s Merry Band of Pranksters, I rode endlessly on the Great Bus Further, and helped start the infamous Acid Tests. There I met Jerry Garcia, and we lived together at the incomparable Grateful Dead house at 710 Ashbury St. in San Francisco. It was the most fun we’ve ever had.
When we found a home of our own, I embraced the ethics of Organic gardening, and eventually wrote Primo Plant, a book on Marijuana cultivation, with help from my friends. My family had always had a big garden, and I found that my garden was highly responsive to my basic preparations and organic practices. Knowing some chemistry has helped me understand the cycle of nutrients and specific herbal supplements for myself as well as what I used in the garden.
We truly are what we consume.
In creating these products, we have emphasized certified Organically grown ingredients. This is especially important as we live in a more crowded world. Organic practices improve our bodies as we nourish our soil.
As I get a little older, my body tells me to pay close attention how to energize and strengthen my whole system, my heart and my brain.
I want to share what I have learned about enhancement of my attention span, my mental readiness and my overall health, by making our products healthy, effective and safe.
May we all grow in strength and wisdom, and seek good health in practice.
