Paris OG Strain Review by Venom Extracts

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.47″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” _i=”0″ _address=”0.0″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.105″ background_layout=”light” border_style=”solid”]

We stopped at MMJ Apothecary dispensary in Wickenburg over the weekend, side note the staff was amazingly knowledgeable and the pharmacy was a nice little living room type setup with a couch and a TV that day it was playing the news,  My hubby must really love me because he found one of my favorite strains Paris OG in concentrate and the concentrate is made by no other than one of the best Extractors in Arizona Venom Extracts.  Ok, enough of the theatrics I’m just so excited this is the first time I’ve seen Paris OG concentrate!!

The Color is nice, it’s a clear golden oil, it’s a snap and pull shatter however because I did the photos first the oil got sticky, lesson learned, it has a very faint citrus sweet smell, too much smell means something was left in the product during production and then they package the half grams portions on these little plastic wrappers and put them it in these branded stay fresh pouches.  Leaving solvents, extracting liquids, butane, and all the way down to the foods you feed your plants those are all carcinogens that we don’t know how it’s going affect us 20 years from now, the cleaner the cannabis is the better it will be is my rule of thumb, I challenge dispensaries to email me their test results, post them in the waiting rooms of your dispensaries, or invite me in to do review education for so many that don’t know or are afraid to ask.   .

The first taste I get is a sweet lemon with a slight sweet pepper, the aftertaste can knock the breath out of me if I’m not careful.  Big hits, makes it really hard to breathe, or at least it feels that’s way, it’s not painful just scary the first time it happens just lay down on the floor and relax focusing on your breathing until it subsides.  You will then feel her blanket down your neck and shoulder relaxing as they go after my bladder starts to relax, I know I can smoke one more bowl at this time and it will sleep like a baby!

I smoked one dab approximately 60 minutes ago and I’m still sitting at a pain level of 4 the Paris OG is still doing its job at this point, I did get the munchies and made a bowl of broccoli cheese rice and even ate 2 cups and so far so good on keeping it down and here comes the sleepiez.

Black Dream Strain Review from Wickenburg Alternative Medicine

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.47″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” _i=”0″ _address=”0.0″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.105″ background_layout=”light” border_style=”solid”]

Black Dream is a beautiful Indica hybrid with a pungent smell of a sweet, earthy, pine smell.  Her tight dense buds are beautiful with the greens, golds, and hints of amber.  The effects come on slower with this flower and I’m curious to see how concentrate would be, after about 10 minutes I could feel the effects right between the eyes, it’s not painful just slight pressure, you can then feel it slowly cascade down your throat almost prompting a drink, this one does give cotton mouth, be warned.  When the high hits your body it gives you a comfortable relaxed feeling, starting in my upper back and chest, because I have been really focused on sitting up straight and some of my scoliosis my upper back has been hurting and this strain take the pain down to a four, so it’s very helpful.  As the medicine makes down the rest of my body I can feel the bladder start to relax, now I’m not saying that smoking flower takes all of my pain away I have to use RSO and sometimes big pharma heaven forbid, to achieve lower pain levels when the cannabis products don’t work, please keep that in mind when dosing.

It’s been about 40 minutes since I smoked the bowl of Black dream, I ’m comfortable sitting at my computer writing up this review, my pain level is at about a 5, which is manageable, I haven’t eaten yet and don’t really feel hungry.  Creatively I have started working on Tigger-Tales.com so I have the creative euphoric energy, I’m not really tired but I could sleep if I laid down.

Overall Black Dream is a yummy tasting strain, the effects include relaxed, sleepy, euphoric, happy, and Hungary.  Medicinally she treats insomnia, pain, fatigue, depression, and stress, but what out for the side effects which are dry mouth and eyes, anxious, paranoid, and dizzy.  Out of all of these side effects and big pharma’s side effects which would you choose, the only reason I bring this up is the carcinogens in cannabis here in Arizona really needs to be looked at because those are what’s harmful to us.

This is a great bud for nighttime the sleepiness comes on slow covering you like a warm blanket, I could snuggle up in my recliner for a nice comfy nap right now!  Thank you @Wickenburg_alternativemedicine tastes great, looks great and works amazing!!!

Pineapple Express Strain Review from Wickenburg Alternative Medicine

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.47″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” _i=”0″ _address=”0.0″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.105″ background_layout=”light” border_style=”solid”]

As I’m sure most of you have heard of Pineapple Express and if you haven’t you need to, so this strain gives that creative spin to your day and shoves you into the day, but in a good way. This 70/30 Sativa dominant strain, depending on the source, Pineapple Express has a woody, earthy, and sweet citrus smell. She has a full body smoke tasting like earthy, funky, sweet pineapple taste that doesn’t linger much, however, the slight aftertaste you do get is a sweet pineapple and citrus taste. Her effects are slow acting for me but keep in mind I am a seasoned MMJ smoker so it may hit other quicker than myself.

Overall this strain is a must have for my house, this is one of the only strains that help get him up and going, it helps control his irritability, and just makes him a nicer guy. This is my husband absolute favorite strain Wickenburg Alternative Medicine, Thank you W.A.M. from the bottom of my heat, you see my husband has had a rough life just like the rest of us and not to go into any detail about him, simply because he does still work and we can’t afford for him to lose his job, he doesn’t trust easily and he always looks mad so when we get around new people they think he’s mad or upset when he’s not. With the Pineapple Express he smiles more in the morning, he still yells at the TV, but I’m normally in the smoke room with him and the Pineapple Express helps calm my anxiety when he’s yelling or getting mad at stupid things around us.

Don and I are opposites he voices his anger as a release, he isn’t yelling at a person per say, he’s venting, which is a very healthy way to do it as long as it isn’t hurting himself or anyone around him. I hold my anger in until I’m so mad the only thing there is to do is blow up, which is very unhealthy, Don and I are working together to get me over some of the PTSD I have acquired over the years.
In all the research I have done on cannabis and other natural remedies I have learned organically grown fruits and vegetables are better for your body and mind and I understand organic anything is expensive but keep in mind if you have an area that gets direct sun for part of the day starting a garden is an easy way to eat organically for less.

Overall This Pineapple Express lives up to its namesake “Pineapple Express” the movie she tastes clean, her smell and taste will have your mouth watering every time you pop that little medicine bottle open. As you take the first drag you will notice a slight creative cerebral, leaving you in a calm stimulating body and head euphoria. Pineapple Express is a heavy hitting if you’re a noob stop and wait about 15 minutes and see how your feeling and continue on at your own risk, lol your own risk of getting more of a euphoria like it’s a bad thing right! I give Wickenburg Alternative Medicine’s Pineapple Express 4 ¾ buds out of 5, and this makes it official you guys over there at W.A.M. have both my husband and myself favorite strains!!!!

Grandaddy Purple Strain Review From @WAM

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.47″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” _i=”0″ _address=”0.0″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.105″ background_layout=”light” border_style=”solid”]

Granddaddy Purple or GDP is a 70/30 Indica hybrid that is a cross between “Big Bud” and “Purple Urkle”.  She has a beautiful berry, sweet, and very grape flavor making her one of the easiest strains to identify.  The Buds themselves are dense little flowers with deep greens, golds, purple, with gold hairs, you can see the vibrant colors in the magnifier.  GDP is a heavy indica the effects come on slowly leaving you in a euphoric state, relaxing my muscles and calming the bladder spasms, My pain level this evening was about a 9 with sharp pains stabbing in my upper abdomen, about 15 to minutes after smoking the full effects kicked in, the pain had decreased to about a 5 little high but it’s my bedtime so I will be sleeping soon especially after my night meds kick in.

GDP will leave you calm, happy, relaxed with a relaxing head euphoria.  GDP is great for chronic pain, depression, stress (but really what strain doesn’t help with stress in one way or another) Insomnia, a lack of appetite to which I can attest to, I made a hot bowl of malt o meal and ate most of it.  The negative effects I had with GDP was cotton mouth and dry eyes, however other negative effects that are associated with GDP dry eye, cotton mouth, dizzy, paranoid and headaches, so try a small amount of this bud until you know if it’s going to cause a migraine, I have had a couple strains that prompt a headache or migraine so start slowly with this one.

GDP euphoric effect is a heavy relaxation allowing your body to relax and allowing your mind to wonder coming up with new ideas, creative ways to manipulate the area I have to make my videos more visually appealing, and coming up with new ideas to do daily shows on.  As I lay there, relaxing it came to me I have done my RSO Diary Vlog and now that I have to be seen at The University of Arizona Cancer Center in Tucson.  I plan on letting them know I am a cannabis legal user and I don’t plan on quitting, I use RSO oil for pain as well helping to keep me off opioids at home, when I’m admitted into the hospital I am stuck with opioids, creating a vlog on the treatment plan U of A comes up with.  Are they going to be pro-cannabis or against it?  Are they going to want to try chemo again and will they be able to convince me to do it, (I doubt it)?

As I fell asleep, all I could think about is how many people had doctors misinformed their patients about cancer treatments, how many doctors were paid every time they prescribed these types of treatments, and how many patients suffered horrible torturous death believing that their doctor was doing what’s best for them?  How many doctors had to apologize to the families of those patients that died a torturous death?  I woke up about 2 hours later in a full sweat from a nightmare, you see I can’t remember most of my childhood well, my subconscious, decides when it’s time for me to remember.  I remembered back to one of my first surgeries the surgery that took my first life.  I was legally dead for just under 5 minutes, upon waking the doctor left, he left the F@#$ hospital, he finished the surgery and sent me to recovery where he left me for a few hours while my family waited in the waiting room wondering what was going on.  The next thing I remember was waking as the nurse was wheeling my bed into a room, she looked at my mom and husband and told them what happened, my mom blew up his pager, to which he never called her back his partner did, is this normal or even acceptable?   I smoked another bowl and fell asleep not waking again.

This strain is a great bedtime smoke, I can’t believe that GDP had any direct correlation with my nightmare, I have smoked GDP a few more times and didn’t have another nightmare, however, I do get these nightmares on a regular basis and I have had to learn that my childhood sucked, my mother was abusive to both my brother and I and we both suffer from severe PTSD from the things that went on with our childhood, and learning it’s in the past has been a hard feat for me, I have accepted what went on I still have a lot of anger to work through but with cannabis in all its forms I believe I can heal the pain of my past.  Thank you Wickenburg Alternative Medicine with organizations out there like you I believe we can all heal the demons of our past without creating new ones.

Jack Herer Official Strain Review from @WickenburgAlternativeMedicine

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.47″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” _i=”0″ _address=”0.0″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.105″ background_layout=”light”]

This beautiful lady as just hit my official number 1 strain of choice down to number 2, and it’s from Wickenburg Alternative Medicine in Scottsdale Arizona. it has taken 3 years to knock my old number 1 choice to a number to 2!, Thank you!! I think you guys are going to love it, so she is she has beautiful buds with Golds, Greens, and a slight hint of violet so beautiful dense buds.  She tasted earthy, sweet, with a slight citrus blend, the smoke was thick and lifting.  She is a Sativa hybrid 55/45, so with the energizing and stimulating Sativa, she has de-throne Paris OG.  Jack Herer is a slow hitter but when she hits, it’s amazing she starts out with the euphoria hitting me right between the eyes and just swimming through my mind, I’m relaxed and the pain I had was at about an 8 this morning actually woke me up early with the sharp stabbing pains in my side are now at about a 4, I did get the munchies and fried up some flour tortillas into chips and finished up the guacamole I made the other, and actually, a rather funny story.

I was trying to explain the whole well drama to my husband in text basically that good for nothing f@#$ stick contractor building right across the way from us, well during my live video he walks by painting a line and says “Hi Nicola” in a very low undertone walking with his head down very quickly, I finished my Live review and started telling my husband what happened well he didn’t understand so I took pictures to show him and he asked me to call the county and as about the rules for wells and how far apart they have to be.  Well, this county worker OMG!  Thank God I finished my review before all this started because this county worker was not the sharpest crayon in the chest, and then in just asking questions it was like he was putting me on trial he was so rude saying our dead mother had to come in and provide the pump serial number because the well still says it’s capped OMG!!! Normally I would have lost my cool by the end of the conversation because I have a serious allergy to stupidity, but I’m not naming any names or blaming him because maybe I was hard to understand so instead of being an a#$, I calmly rephrased the question and was actually able to get an answer that really helped.  Then I was able to text the best and shortest text explaining the entire 1-hour call in 10 words all while not burning any of my chips.  I was able to keep my cool and it was nice to be able to get off a phone call, getting the information I needed, being able to clearly and concisely explain the answer to my hubby that gave me the response of “ok”.

To explain a little of why this is so important to me, I lose words all the time, I have a hard time explaining myself with words, I know and I’m a writer right, when I’m sitting at my keyboard words flow out easier than explaining verbally I get frustrated then I lose more words and then I’m flustered and can’t talk at my computer I can wait for the words if I need to, but I’m not under pressure trying to get the info I need verbally, that’s why I sometimes really sound stupid on the phone with sponsors, and I send an email I’m sorry I get serious anxiety when surprised.  This is the first strain in a while that has helped me with that anxiety, I get that way when I get surprised in person, Like when I met the Owners of Wickenburg Alternative Medicine, they were having a vender day, and the owner was there and I didn’t expect, them and I felt so stupid because I lost words I got excited and just felt like a little kid in a candy store, I really felt dumn but, they are such amazing people and the help they have done for the community is amazing, it was so cool watching Mona’s face light up each time she saw one of per patients walk in, talking to each one and calling they by name from memory, I love that my memory sucks, but she and her husband such beautiful wonderful people and all their staff at Wickenburg Alternative Medicine, and don’t forget W.A.M is also a non-profit Dispensary in Surprise, Arizona helping the community one patient at a time!

Crown Royal Strain Review from Cave Creek Cannabis

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.47″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” _i=”0″ _address=”0.0″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.105″ background_layout=”light” border_style=”solid”]

Crown Royal is an indica dominant hybrid 70/30 the parent strains of this beauty I have had before and loved both it’s a cross between Blueberry and Purple Kush with a THC ranging from 17% to 21%, however, she has an amazingly high CBD at a whopping 2.1%.  Most people that are just looking for the cerebral or euphoric effects however CBD isn’t a euphoric part of the plant and most people think less CBD more THC is better however that’s not exactly true.  CBD holds very important anti-inflammatory properties as well as pain, mental illness, anxiety epilepsy, vomiting and nausea, and schizophrenia that most people don’t know it also helps you if you end up in an over high anxiety attach, ingesting CBD will calm the head high down and relax the anxiety attach down as well the most common forms are a tincture you can drink.

 

Crown Royal strain has a pungent sweet fruity earthy taste with no major after taste, the effects are seemingly quick starting with a very euphoric cerebral high relaxing my shoulders and back I started smoking today and my pain was at an 8 with peaks into the 9s, I feel almost as if my gallbladder is swelling again and maybe a kidney stone so this bowl was very welcome as well as being on the phone with godaddy for over an hour getting my site to “step back in” as they put it, I used an image I found on google it had no water mark to I used it, well a lady emails me saying it’s her image and asking me to take it down so I did, well I’m not sure why she reported me to godaddy after I removed the image and they shut my site down.  I had already removed the image a week prior, so needless to say my stress and anxiety are up, so choosing a strain that not only had a high THC but a high CBD has also reduced my anxiety quite a bit as well as dropping my pain level to a 4.

Honestly this Crown Royal strain tastes amazing overall the only complaint I can tell is the pepper or spice burn I get in my throat but the relaxing and euphoric effects are amazing the taste is great, tastes clean, the overall look of the bud is very nice this was a sun grown bud so it’s a little small for an indica but overall I’ll be back it’s a great relaxing pain relieving strain that has the beautiful euphoric side effects needed when not feeling so great and needing sleep great job Cave Creek Cannabis!!

Pineapple Chunk Strain Review from Cave Creek Cannabis!

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.47″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” _i=”0″ _address=”0.0″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.105″ background_layout=”light” border_style=”solid”]

Pineapple chunk is a 50/50 hybrid with the effects weighing on the indica side.  She has a beautiful fresh sweet, pineapple, spice scent and the flavor is a mild sweet pine, pepper flavor.  She has a great taste however after a couple of hits my throat really burns.  The effect is quick lasting you feel the euphoria start swimming around in your head relaxing my back and bladder a bit.  This strain is good to stimulate appetite, I started cooking a small snack as I sat down to write this review.  I started this bowl with a pain level of about 8 and now I’m down to a 4, a 4 is manageable for me I still have some back and bladder pain as I’m sitting here writing, and I had to take a break sitting in my recliner helps the relaxation, and sitting in my computer chair causes my back to hurt much worse, however it’s good practice sitting up straight.  The pain never fully goes away and I’m ok with that, the first problem I had was the doctors throwing pills at us in the 90’s, and we didn’t fully understand that the only way for those pills to take all of our painfully away we would be dead, the pills would take our lives.  So please understand the pain never goes away we just learn new ways to control showing it, and it’s not always successful.

I ended up taking a short nap in my recliner, so if you suffer from insomnia this is a good strain, after I finished my video and brought all my props inside I was tired, my pain level did grow a bit, I was nausea and as I sat at my computer writing the review the pain in my back was hitting back up to about a 7, and I did notice I still had the cannabis actively working in my body (I was high, I still had all the head euphoria.) I decided to relax in my recliner giving my back a break, after about 10 minutes the cannabis had relaxed the back pain and bladder pain down to a 4 so of you notice that something is irritating your symptoms take a break from doing the activity for a little while but I return to the activity of sitting and writing in my chair because I consciously sit straight in my desk chair as uncomfortable as it becomes it’s a good exercise for my back, I’m only half crazy lol.

This beautiful bud has a beautiful pungent sent followed by quick euphoria effects that last a couple of hours.  This is a great “Stoner” high helping significantly with chronic pain, Stress, muscle spasms, depression, and insomnia.  Great job guys over at Cave Creek Cannabis my only complaint here is the throat burn, however, the taste, effects, and aroma helps make up for that!

Chronic Pain Patients Commiting Suicide To Escape The Pain

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.47″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” _i=”0″ _address=”0.0″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.105″ background_layout=”light”]

This blog is really hard for me to write and make the video on because I can relate completely I’ve been there and now I want to share my experience and sadness.  I was first diagnosed with cancer when I was 19 years old, I lived on my own and was basically on my own, I didn’t talk to my family or rather they didn’t talk to me.  My mother I was getting to know again but the relationship was draining you see my mom disowned me because she had a mental break down and she sent my brother and I to live with different family members, she separated me from the one person I felt I couldn’t live without my brother and sent me to live with a horrible monster her uncle who then started molesting me and I honestly hated her but needed her all at the same time.  How exactly does that work?  I later found out more about the abuse my conscious hid from me and to this day even though she has passed I still hold a love-hate relationship in my heart for my mother.  My father was different, he was a good stand up man who had remarried and nice lady for him, however not so much for me.  I know they loved one another very much and they had 3 beautiful kids together they were married for over 30 years I believe, but my father because very ill he ended up with lung and bone cancer.  My father went through chemo and radiation to try to beat it however he lost his battle and passed away, and I believe the last phone call I received from my father pretty much sums up our relationship my older brother and I had been invited to Christmas dinner the day prior and my father called to cancel because my stepmom only wanted family at that dinner for fear it was going to be his last and he pasted a couple of weeks later leaving my brother and I orphans.

I tell this story to explain mental health development starts at an early age and with the way I grew up was a setup for failure.  With all this negative drama it’s constantly pounding in your head, you will start having dreams of things in the past and now finding out that some of those nightmares I’ve lived with were real hurts and that mental pain needs to be dealt with.  For a long time, I self-medicated not only my real pain from cancer, treatments, surgeries, chemo, and the whole shebang but I was also using opioids to ease my mental pain, to knock me out so I didn’t have another nightmare.  It got so bad I was sleepwalking and taking them and with no memory of doing it, and honestly now as I look back I think subconsciously I was done I was so tired, I couldn’t remember more, I couldn’t handle the demons.  Luckily my husband saw what was going on and one day he approached me, however instead of calling me out on it and a whole intervention he sat down and told me story about someone he knew and all he talked to me about was the sleep-waking he said a friend at work said it about his wife and he asked me, the guy asked should he talk to his wife and now my husband asked me “what would you say to him talk to her or no?”  I said definitely talk to her.  Then he asked, “what if it was you?” I paused a moment and asked, is it?  As he shook his head yes and lowered his head a bit I could see the level of concern and all I could say was ok what do we do?  He started giving me my pills on a daily basis and hiding the rest this went on for a year and I was doing pretty well but the legal Marijuana program started in Arizona and I started my research.  I read every book I could get my hands on all the way to learning how to cultivate organically.  As I researched online I found it harder and harder to find information on how the different cannabis affects an individual, what different cannabis strains help with what, and can I become addicted to cannabis the way I was addicted to opioids?

In this article, I want to explain a little bit about what the chronically ill and chronic pain patients want you to know.  Now I using an article I didn’t write to reference here it is a great article please read it, it’s very well written by Tea Lynn Moore.

  1. “We try hard to look good”  This statement hits very close to home on days I Video Blog or go out it takes me close to 2 hours to get ready because I can’t stand comfortably for that amount of time without resting, then when I am ready I have to rest before the activity starts especially if what I’m doing is in the cannabis industry because if I don’t you can see the pain and the hurt in my eyes and face.  I don’t want people to see me that way and start with the pity and how sorry they are, guys we know you are sorry and we know if you could fix it you would and no one can it’s ok.  At the doctor now, I have learned if we don’t look sick we get the looks or the statement you look like you’re feeling good today.    No, it’s not that we feel any different than any other day, it’s that we think get up get dressed try to look good on the outside so you can try to feel good on the outside and most of the time it helps a little but it just makes us feel better to look good.

 

  1. “It’s not all n our heads” OMG! If I hear another doctor say that I’m going to go insane. This is where I wish I had the superpower to just touch the doctor and for one minute they can feel what I’m feeling then they would know for a fact where it hurt and how bad and I’ll bet anyone a million dollars those doctors would fall to their knees and cry screaming in pain.  I really think that’s all that needs to be said here.

 

  1. “We are not making an mountain out of a mole hole” Now for those of you that don’t understand it’s fairly simple I have gone to the hospital recently because I was in a body crash and what happens in a body crash is I start vomiting and going number 2 to the point my bowl is clear completely clear but smelly, smelly, yuck I start omitting bile, I’m in so much pain it takes everything I have to just get into the bathroom and sit on the toilet and vomit in a trash can sorry this is so descriptive but it’s pure hell.  I have had the doctors come in and they start the fluids and the nausea medicine but they always try to have me swallow a Percocet and I try to nicely tell them no it’s not going to work I get ulcers in my stomach and intestines, I have ulcerative colitis and they have to do IV pain meds to get it under control.  They normally try a low dose to start with or a shot of toroidal that doesn’t help, until my blood work comes back and then normally the doctor comes back in offering a higher dose normally a stay in the hospital for a few days, but always the first thing they think us were exaggerating the pain.

 

  1. “No matter how long we’ve been suffering for, it still hurts”  This is a big one please understand we don’t have a timer on our pain, it doesn’t rest, it doesn’t fix itself in the middle of the night, and take a holiday.  With any type of pain medication whether it be Big Pharma, medical cannabis, or sadly street drugs the more you take the more you have to take to get the same result, in other words if you take 1 opioid a day for let’s say 3 months (this is hypothetical I’m using as an example) to get the same relief from your Percocet you may now have to start taking two to get the same relief as you were getting previously, and in another 3 months you may have to move to a stronger medicine or take more for the same relief and so on.  This is building a tolerance to the substance and it takes more to help.  It is an endless cycle and people are needing a better quality of life we are searching for it that’s why I created this channel and blog to share my experience and hopefully help someone else.

 

  1. “Sometimes we don’t have the spoons” This analogy is perfect and was coined by Christine Miserandino a warrior living with Lupus. Please check out her blog Here there is a lot of great information to help you guys as well.  The spoons signify how much strength we have we wake up each morning with a number of spoons depending on how we feel, please keep in mind the number of spoons we have vary on any given day, we then lose a spoon with each daily activity like getting out of bed, or taking a shower each activity wears us down until we just don’t have the spoons to do anything else that day.

 

  1. “We’re not lazy”, OMG! No we’re not there are many days I have to take a nap, I have to refill my “spoons” per say, or I don’t have any spoons to use so I stay in bed for the day, I will write, read, watch documentaries and nap during this time but my house doesn’t get clean, I can’t do a video blog, but I’m still actively doing something even if it’s giving my body rest so I can heal.

 

  1. “If we don’t have a job it’s for a reason”, when I found out I was terminal it sucked really bad but it opened my eyes to life, to new experiences, new people, and a whole new world. I’m being told I’m going to leave this earth, say goodbye to so many things I haven’t gotten to experience.  I have a bucket list and sadly I haven’t even started it because of money, but I quit my job at first I was running away from anything that was accepting death.  I really loved my job and I did help a lot of people but I wasn’t fully invested there and when they told me to choose “lose my job if I use cannabis, which is legal in this state, or keep my job and die” and yes this was the exact words used.  So I chose life with cannabis, and now that I’m considered “terminal” and chronically ill we can’t find a job.  Then to top it all off in order to apply for social security benefits you must be out of work for a year, how the hell is that supposed to work?  So I built Freemycure.org and I started blogging as often as I could, now I write for Weed World Magazine I don’t get paid for the articles however I do it because it has improved my quality of life so much and I’m hoping to help all of you.

 

  1. “Every Minute feels like an eternity when waiting”, this statement is so true right this second, the pain in my back and bladder has started to get really bad to the point I had to take my muscle relaxer.  Now the muscle relaxer is going to take approximately 45 minute, however we have changed all the clocks in our house to no second hands because I will focus on it to the point it feels like everything around me has stopped and I hear gasping for air and it feels like you’re going to pass out, it can knock the breath out of me dropping me to my knees in pain, and all you can think is please god please make it stop.

 

  1. “It’s really hard to get out bed in the morning… and always”, ok so my bed it a cushy pillow top mattress that forms around me, in the morning I wake up sore as I’m lying there, then comes the getting out of bed ritual, sit up let my head stop spinning, because of IC and Ulcerative colitis I get anemic, I’m usually pretty weak until I am able to urinate then it’s straight for the smoke room, I will pack and smoke a bowl then take my morning medication and I take a nap, this starts at 4 am every morning. I usually lay back down and rest from 5 to 7 when I start the shower and getting ready process, my hubby has learned to tell me our plans are an hour earlier so we’re not late.

 

  1. “We are not ignoring you” OMG! So true I get several people that ask what’s going on throughout the day, or even answering all the messages is exhausting when your body is fighting an illness or just picking up your phone or answering email takes energy we don’t have, or we’re mad because we don’t feel good and we don’t want to drag you into the negativity with us.  Yes we get mad because we’re sick or hurting or depressed it’s normal, however, if you ever feel you need to talk to someone or need to talk to a counselor the Suicide Prevention number is 1-800-273-8255

 

  1. “We get really excited when we’re having a good day” very true statement, for example, my YouTube channel has started to grow I’ve done a couple of videos I’m really proud and happy and I will jump and dance around and be silly around the house. On a good day, I feel better, not pain-free not illness free, just better, I feel I look better on those days, I feel I can write better, and I feel I have a better mental grip on myself.

 

  1. “We get really bumbed when we have a bad day and can’t do the things we love” On bad days I feel ugly, gross, tired, depressed and in a lot of pain. Being chronically ill with chronic pain.  I get mad at myself when I can’t do the things I have planned, honestly I’m  my own hardest critic I think we all can be, and then with a chronic condition beating your body (that’s what it feels like) then depression hits in, now at this point please keep in mind you have a choice try finding someone around you that you can talk to I personally recommend a professional

 

  1. “It can be hard to find a good doctor” when you have a condition that causes severe pain, pain management doctors are leaving the pain management field for fear of federal prosecution and primary doctors are still sending patients to pain management doctors so they don’t face federal prosecution.  So what happens to these patients? What about these peoples quality of life?  What about these patients lives?

 

  1. “We are not drug seekers” This one is a little harder for me, and the reason is once anyone gets addicted it takes more of it to help. We are seeking a better quality of life, if someone could figure out how to cure all of our pain, inventing one of little scanner that they have Star track that fixes us without pills I’m am all over that.

 

  1. You don’t need to give us suggestions or medical advice”, I have had so many people that give me suggestions all the time but I promise I am pretty well versed on my condition, as with others that have chronic conditions. I have read every book I could find, hit the internet and researched everything I could find on cancer and cannabis, however, 1 thing I think is funny when you tell your primary doctor and tell him you’re using cannabis and see what he or she says.

 

  1. “Love and Support”, this one is hard for most, and I don’t blame you if it’s hard. Watching your mom, dad, sister, or brother waste away is hard, it hurts, you will curse God and apologize.  I get it, but the is one thing I can honestly tell you if you really want to help us come to visit, do an activity together, and take 5 minutes to go out of your way to make a phone call, stop in and help with some of the household chores.  This helps the chronically ill patients stimulates their minds, allows them to be a little less depressed, and shine a little hope at the end of the tunnel.

 

I personally weaned myself, with my husband’s help, off the opioids a couple of years ago and I started cannabis, on really bad days I will consume up to 4 grams of RSO a day along with smoking to help with breakthrough pain.  Suicide prevention hotline 1-800-273-8255 and their web page is, https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/

500 mg. Blue Cheese Distillate from @Timelessvapes

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″ _builder_version=”3.0.47″][et_pb_row _builder_version=”3.0.47″ background_size=”initial” background_position=”top_left” background_repeat=”repeat” _i=”0″ _address=”0.0″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.0.105″ background_layout=”light”]

500 mg. Blue Cheese Distillate from @Timelessvapes

This beauty is Blue Cheese Distillate she is an Indica dominant hybrid with about 80%/20% Indica.  This is from Timeless Vapes in Arizona.  This isn’t the first time I’ve used Timeless Vapes Distillate but it is the first time that I’m reviewing it, it’s because the distillate doesn’t last long with me so as you can see I’ve been using this distillate and though OMG Reviews, so here it is!!

The taste is amazing, it really reminds me of blueberry sweet cream cheese French toast with less maple syrup, it’s amazing, hence it doesn’t last with me but the flavor is amazing!!  The effects can be felt almost immediately, easing my pain and bladder spasms, relaxing my back some in the kidney area, and stimulating my appetite.  When I started this morning I smoked a bowl of Great White Shark from @thenirvanacenter in Glendale Arizona and I use these distillate pens in between smoking a blunt or bowl, My pain level was at an 8 I had a pretty rough night last night and I’m out of shatter.  The effects hit pretty quickly relieving my pain to a very manageable 5, it keeps my nausea at bay so I can eat.  Today I made fried flour Tortilla chips and homemade Guacamole and ate a good amount, sadly that’s probably all I’ll be eating today but that’s ok it all stayed down and I’m feeling pretty good this evening.

This strain is good for Creativity, pain management, stress, anxiety, appetite stimulant, ADHD, Bipolar, Disorder, and arthritis.  This distillate has a clean taste of the oil was a clear golden yellow, the aftertaste is very subtle and sweet.   @Timelessvapes you guys got this down I’m am giving you guys 5 buds and I have only given 5 buds to 1 other and I can’t wait to try more Thank you for everything you do!!
