Black Dream is a 50\50 Sativa hybrid, she has a sweet, fruity, woody, and diesel taste. This is a great strain for a calm Sunday afternoon she will give you almost an immediate euphoric effect right between the eyes, and within about 10 minutes you can feel your body start to relax, the pain calms (I started this morning at a pain level of an 8 and now I’m down to a 4. Black Dream descends from Jamaican Dream and Black Domina with a THC level between 15-20% leaning more towards the indica effects. The concentrate is a golden brown with the consistency sugar wax consistently making it easier to get off the plastic.
This morning like so many I woke up sick to my stomach, I’ve been in quite a bit of pain that I’m managing with Medical Marijuana, I have been trying to get control of my eating disorder again, however, it’s just been really tough I have dropped calories again and sadly went 2 days last week without eating anything at all, I don’t have a body image problem I just forget to eat or I won’t eat because it makes me sick to my stomach. For me Marijuana is a life saver without it I wouldn’t really be able to eat and what I did eat usually came back up.
Black Dream is an awesome strain for Insomnia, stress, pain, nausea, and inflammation. The effects will leave you relaxed, sleepy euphoric, happy and uplifted. The negatives on this strain for me was dry mouth and eyes, however, others you may experience are anxious, paranoid, and dizzy. Overall this beautiful lady reduced my pain level to a 4, gave me a little bit of an appetite and I was able to eat a peach with cheesecake dipping sauce and kept it down, it reduces my stress and anxiety, with the bladder transplant coming up my anxiety and stress level have never been higher. For most people that don’t have an immune deficiently, when I walk out of my house I take a risk, anyone and everyone I came into contact with can potentially make me sicker, if they are ill I am going to get.
Overall Wickenburg Alternative Medicine has the concentrates down, even though the wax recently has taken on a sugar wax consistency, when in fact it’s shatter. There are many variables as to why extraction techniques results can vary, and in this case, it’s believed to be the high humidity. The wax alone tasted clean I couldn’t taste any pesticides, no chemical taste, and the light golden brown coloring is a little dark but truly amazing. This particular strain lasted about four hours before I had to re-medicate. Great Job W.A.M. you guys are amazing, thank you for everything you do.
This beautiful strain was named by Snoop Dogg himself, her origins start with Skunk #1 and an unknown partner strain. She has a 24% THC and I’m not really sure about where the CBD levels sit as I don’t have her testing papers, she has a pungent sweet mango fruity skunk flavor to her and golden sugar wax granules gleaming in the sun makes your mouth water looking at her, it’s love at first taste. Before dabbing this morning I was at a pain level of 7.5 after dabbing my pain level decreased to a comfortable 5 pretty quickly. This is a Sativa dominant 65\35 hybrid that will give an experienced smoker a jolt of creative energy allowing my figures to glide over the keys of my keyboard and allowing the words to flow effortlessly across the keys.
About 30 minutes into the creative buzz I find hunger is dragging me into the kitchen to heat up some pizza, a Sicilian style meat lover’s dream pizza, chronic nausea flares my eating disorder and cannabis really assists me with eating and this strain is a great help, when I have the munchies as long as I don’t overeat I’m usually pretty good, if I overeat instead of tossing the cookies, I’ll be tossing the pizza and it’s much too good for that.
Having an eating disorder without a bad body image I think is harder than with a bad body image, when I feel good I feel like I can eat anything when in reality I have to be careful not to over eat, not to eat something on my “Bad list” (“bad list” is foods that will cause my interstitial cystitis or my ulcerative colitis to become angry), or not drinking enough fluids having a problem with any of these will land me in the hospital, Do Not Pass Go Do Not Collect 200 Dollars. I control my eating disorder on a daily basis with cannabis, if you have ever known someone with an eating disorder they will do just about anything during the height of their problem not to eat, I am currently 15 pounds down in the last 6 weeks and getting worried. I haven’t tried to restrict, I haven’t spent my days looking at the scale and exercising I developed Ulcerative Colitis, ulcers, interstitial cystitis among a few other issues and staying hydrated as well constipated doesn’t happen anymore, 1 I’m very thankful for and the other not so much. Becoming a slave to food has really been a challenge, having to face my fear and find new ways of staying healthy has been stressful and exciting I have had to start writing down the Cannabis strains that really promote the munchies with me, I’ve learned to start doing light Yoga to keep my intestines moving and keep everything stretched. Eating disorders are stressful, they constantly whisper in your ear, they scare the hell out of everyone involved from patient to parent, and they are unforgiving so please if you suffer from an eating disorder find the comfort zones that help you eat and keep it down life is worth every day you’re not a slave to it.
After eating I can usually settle into a comfy chair and start writing away, working on a few articles and the book right now I need all the help this Sativa offers, the effects are a cerebral, creative, energizing, focused happy buzz that will allow me hours of creative writing. Recently I’ve been asked to write how my disabilities limit me and I decided a daily diary may be the easiest way to explain some of my limitations, one of the things I’ve had to document is how many time I go to the bathroom and it’s like 3 times an hour, Omg how do I get any writing down plus I have to catheterize every time so it’s freaking time-consuming. Could you imagine how mad an employer would be, lol hold that though I have to go to the bathroom a million times because with Interstitial cystitis there isn’t a waiting period, when you gotta go you gotta go now, otherwise your bladder is going to make you pay you will be in so much pain you can stand and then the bladder will clamp shut and the only way to void the bladder is to have the hospital nurse force in a folly to a bladder that is clamped shut. This continues throughout the day I just find it crazy that one part of the body can affect so much, physically and mentally.
As always Wickenburg Alternative Medicine or W.A.M. does an amazing job and they are being nominated by High Times Magazine for the Best of 2018 you have my vote and thank you from patients like me for an amazing product and overall an absolutely amazing dispensary and staff, we love you!!
As I’m inhaling this strain I look down and see the subscriber counter on my YouTube click over two more clicks and I can feel the euphoria blanket over my body leaving me happy, relaxed, focused, and hungry. As I click away at the keys I remember I have a peach waiting in the kitchen, so yes I dropped everything for a snack.
This month is dedicated to all my fellow Eating disorder patients I have reviewed several strains of cannabis that help me relax and build an appetite, I have reviewed a few strains that help me get motivated to do some light yoga, exercise is hard for me having cancer, interstitial cystitis, ulcerative colitis and scoliosis so light Yoga is all I can do.
Seeking help for an Eating Disorder has to be body and mind healing together, most eating disorder victims have a major crutch like drug addiction (whether the drugs are Big Pharma or on the street they are the same, addictive and killers), they have had a hard life if only in their minds eye, when you look at yourself in the mirror every day and you don’t like what you see it doesn’t matter if it’s not really what you look like it’s what you see that what the patient in some cases, is needing to correct, whether they are losing weight because they believe they look fat or because of a medical condition like myself. We, most of the time have unhealthy eating habits if we are eating at all, some try to over exercise to keep the weight off, some will force themselves to vomit every day for an undefined amount of time, I am not like that my eating disorder started in high school and it was mostly a control thing, I was always sent away for the summers and I had a new boyfriend and you know how teenagers are, it’s the end of the world when they don’t get what they want, I thought it was a good idea to start restricting at my Aunt and Uncles house because I wanted to be with my boyfriend. My parents didn’t give in which I believe was the right decision and that calmed my eating disorder down again until I got sick. I don’t think my parents thought I had an eating disorder but when I gained 60 pounds in a few months to try to detour my mother’s uncles wandering hands, that was the start of Ed or my eating disorder, he whispered in my ear and became my best friend during a very difficult time.
Years of intermittent chemo sucks I went through the first 3 cancers without cannabis but I was done ready to give up and my kids and hubby started pushing “the pot”, lol back then my kids would laugh at me because right after I received my card in the mail I told the kids who were 15 and 17 at the time that I was going to “the Pot Store” to get some medicine and they thought that was the funniest thing, but that day I discovered a new world, the vomiting slowed way down, I found I didn’t need some of the meds I was taking on a daily basis, I was more alert and interested in live again. That’s what the “Pot Store” did for me that day and I haven’t looked back, I’m on 15 fewer pills a day and that’s different pills, I think I was taking almost 20 pills in the morning alone that’s a lot of pills. Think of the damage those pills were doing to me and that wasn’t including the pills I abused. I started going to the medicine cabinet and slowly reducing the pills finding out that cannabis was correcting some of the daily side effects I live with, I did this in conjunction with my doctor, he knew I was using cannabis and was on board affirming my discontinuation of several “Big Pharma” pills because cannabis was aiding my healthy recovery, warning me only not to use to much as it can cause anxiety attacks.
With the aid of this wonderful Sweet Dreams Concentrate strain I have been relaxed for 2 hours now making the phone calls to Mikel L with the Norml.com organization, and furthering my contacts with dispensaries around the valley comfortably at a pain level of 4 still 2 hours later I am starting t get the sharp stabbing pain from another ulcer another wonderful side effect from an opioid addiction and an Eating Disorder, the euphoria is gone leaving me in a comfortable state for about 2 hours. Allowing me 2 hours that I can think clearly, 2 hours I can write comfortably because sitting for too long is horribly painful (1 hour can be too long), so anything that can help elevate pain, allow me to eat and keep it down, think clearly (pain messes with your head and chronic pain can cause anyone to go crazy and want to die), sleep, and allows my body to heal I can’t be closed minded to any longer because I was for a long time, anyone that goes through the torture of cancer 3 times with only “big Pharma” products and survives, in my opinion, has the right to choose their treatments. We as people have the right to survive, we have the right to choose our treatments, “Big Pharma” has killed: according to Pharma Death Clack Chemotherapy has killed 18,560,292 (which sadly was the only site I could find with the statistics on Chemotherapy-related deaths,and I do question where he got his statistics), Opioids 42,000+ according to The CDC, just to name a few and Cannabis in any and all its forms still at a whopping 0 according to The War on Drugs. this doesn’t include all the other deaths every year from street drugs and then there’s the crime, violence, accidents, accidental deaths (pedestrians and animals that “got in the way”) and pharmaceuticals that are being sold on the street from other countries but cannabis is still ZERO. The choice seems simple but people are still going to prison because of law interpretations.
How does that work the law is written then people interpret to mean what they want it to mean, that seems stupid to me, interpreting a law should be illegal in my opinion, I looked at the numbers I understand the narcotic issue and that cannabis is a class 1 narcotic, however if your using cannabis or any of its derivatives it all falls under the same plant, it all comes off the flowers of these plants it doesn’t matter the form whether it’s concentrate, edible, flower, keif, or hash. Nothing else if purchased through a reputable source should be in these concentrates so why the tension and idiocrasy over this issue, am I a criminal because I use these products to help aid in my well being? Well, we’re going to find out more tomorrow when we meet and talk to our new friend Mikel Weisser from the NORML organization.
Wickenburg Alternative Medicine has been nominated for The Best of Phoenix 2018 http://readerschoice.phoenixnewtimes.com/ and it’s well deserved. Mona one of the owners I talked to gleamed as she greeted her patients by name asking about their day and truly interested in each patients day is a beautiful quiet lady that travels to and from the cultivation site and the dispensary, which are several miles apart. They opened their doors in 2013 as the Surprise Arizona non-profit cannabis dispensary and they are extended their helping hand to all the patients in need along the way. I discovered them in 2016 when pretty much all they had was some top shelf flower and probably only about 15 strains, we fell in love with their pineapple express and still go when we see it on the menu today!! Thank you from Patients like me that get the products they need to save their lives, Thank you!!!
OMG, where to start this beautiful strain, is named after a precious metal and immediately tugged on my heartstrings she has an earth sweet woody potato taste that has a lingering sweet pepper flavor that knocks the breath out of me every time, however leaving a euphoric creative stimulating buzz for a short while before either leaving me in a comfortable couch lock or a swirling buzz that helps me clean the house a little maybe a little light Yoga before settling in to my writing.
Now that over an hour has passed and I was distracted like crazy OMG pain level has gone from a 7.5 to a 4 almost immediately after catching my breath, This strain has given me the courage to talk about 2 things that I’m extremely sensitive about my teeth and my eating disorder, my eating disorder didn’t cause the tooth decay I have chemotherapy and years of Big Pharma abuse to thank for that, now this abuse was on my end just as much as on the doctors end, but nobody likes to see a cancer patient in pain. I talk about these things with this strain because it has a 1% CBN now that’s not a lot however for those of that know CBN is One of the Cannabinoids responsible for some of the sleepiness and hunger you feel when you use this product it also aids in pain relief, by activating the peptides in your body from the sensory nerves, reduces the risk of Glaucoma and stops the progression of Glaucoma, prolonging seizure latency activity, antibacterial, stimulates appetite, and has anti-inflammatory properties, OMG give me more of that right!! So CBN is degraded or aged cannabis it may be less potent, however, the benefits outweigh that one negative. You will find CBN is more prominently in the indica strains, Sleep Hills Labs reports from their study.
Between the nausea and vomiting and the effects of chemo and honestly my inability to afford to be able to go to a dentist has left me with a mouth that hurts all the time, it wakes me in the middle of the night throbbing and stabbing in my mouth, and sadly still can’t afford to see a dentist. I’m sure my Eating Disorder contributed to the damage to my teeth, but it wasn’t fully to blame I hide my smile with my hand or something in my hand when I talk, it really hurts my confidence and demeanor to just be able to walk up to someone and talk to them without feeling like they are looking at me like a crackhead it blows you want to scream it’s not what you think. Kinda funny so why not add it in, I got a call yesterday about Adam Sandler’s casting agents saw my photo and wanted me to audition as an extra, nothing huge but it was exciting so I’m here if you need me to shoot me an email if interested just kidding (maybe?), I’ll trade it out for dental work lol.
Eating disorders are nothing to laugh about or judge someone about it’s literally painful to have food sitting in front of us we want to eat but our body and mind start rejecting it, appropriate attention helps, my husband and I have started talking daily just him and I no tech just us and a dab or a joint something and it may only be 5 to 10 minutes a day, I may go to the garage and hand him tools when he’s working and we talk I have to make the effort to make an appropriate effort to communicate with him every day. I have learned by experience when those of us, me included have outside stressors, not enough attention and human contact, or severe chronic pain we tend to fall back into our Eating Disorder ways, Ed is quite comforting and accepting when he’s whispering in our ears, his promises sound good but don’t forget following Ed can be fatal.
Thank you Wickenburg Alternative Medicine for yet another amazing product this is why you are being nominated for New Times Dispensary of 2018!!!! Thank you and We Love YOU!!!

9lb Hammer is an Indica Dominate Hybrid 80\20 it’s a cross between Goodberry, Hells OG, and Jack the Ripper. She has a skunky woody sweet skunky flavor that relaxed me into a writing frenzy along with cleaning and eating so this is perfect for chronic pain, stress, depression, muscle spasms and severe nausea allowing me to eat. I ate my entire French Dip Sandwich, as I looked at my husband in amazement I actually said OMG I can’t believe I ate the whole thing, the best part is it stayed down!! I know right, now that’s something to be yelling from the rooftops.
These Moon Rocks were made by Wickenburg Alternative Medicine or as otherwise known W.A.M. Rolling 9lb Hammer flower in 9lb Hammer concentrate and then rolling it in the Keif from 9lb Hammer Flower, I know my mouth is watering again just typing this. With all of this THC a few puffs will do and for a new user be careful concentrates and higher doses of THC can cause an anxiety attack.
This beautiful combination will hit you smack dab between the eyes leaving you in a happy creative euphoric fog, only giving you about an hour to create a masterpiece before snuggling up for the night. Once this creative euphoria leaves you, you will feel a spark of arousal so smoking these alone is not recommended. Alieving the pain to about a pain level of 4, relaxing the bladder spasms I still have to catheterize to urinate but it helps to relieve some of the spasms that make urinating so painful, also relieving some of the pain for intimacy.
I smoke concentrates mostly, so when smoking flower it’s not as effective adding the concentrate and keif really help me accomplish the things most people can do easily like cleaning the house, eating and keeping it down, and just plain and simply leaving the house. Once my life was almost over I decided to fight, fight for life, health and most of all the truth, cannabis has allowed me the opportunity at this second shot at life and I want everyone to see Medical Marijuana isn’t as scary as chemo, big pharma, and the Attorney General Jeff Sessions want you to think, question life, there aren’t any stupid questions only stupid answers and together we can weigh war on drugs and save lives with Cannabis!
Turn the music up and start jamming for 30 to 45 minutes cleaning or writing for those with a flair for the arts. Lemon OG is a citrus, skunky, earthy, sweet indica dominant hybrid that will come on quick and leave just as quickly with the euphoric and pain fighting ability only lasts a short 30 minutes or so, however it lingers creativity sparking a whirlwind of words shooting from my fingers to the keyboard easing me into a cozy couch lock after a second dab.
Lemon OG hails from Las Vegas Lemon Skunk and The OG #18 according to Leafly.com and Allbud.com, The concentrate is a golden yellow with the consistency of slightly wet sugar granules, the smell before smoking is a slight sweet skunky smell but the taste is a very sweet skunky citrus taste that will go straight to your head as it knocks the wind out of you. It takes roughly 3 minutes to recover from a large dab or as I call it hot and hurtful. After the three minutes, it calms my stomach and eases the nausea feeling and reducing my pain from an 8 to a 5.
I decided to review this strain with the Errl Cup goodies we received yesterday because this is the strain I took with me on Sunday as a relaxer because I have sever anxiety in crowds of people, with all the cannabis in the air my anxiety level was minimal as long as I focused on the job at hand. My reason for attending the Errl Cup was purely selfish, I have never been to something like this because of my medical issues getting out is hard. Before starting cannabis I prayed for death daily, I couldn’t get out of bed more or less the house, and it sucked so with that I’m announcing my next set of vlogs and it’s going to be starting my bucket list and we’re going to do it together. I’m going to sit down and write a bucket list for the first time ever, and I’m going to do a whole series and publish it to YouTube for you to enjoy.
The effects of Lemon OG are Happy, Relaxed, Creative, Sleepy, and Euphoric to treat Stress, Pain, lack of Appetite, Insomnia, and Depression. I believe this is a good strain for a beginner to the moderate user because of the fast acting and lasting euphoria. I personally rank this at a 4.75 out of 5 buds great job Wickenburg Alternative Medicine as always it’s amazing and guys don’t forget to vote by August 5, 2018, for the Best of Phoenix New Times competition they are hands down an amazing facility and so great to their patients, We Love You!
When we arrived at The Legends Event Center on Sunday, July 15, 2018, it was crazy the parking lot was full and trying to find parking was difficult, I don’t think they expected such a great turn out. Once we made it to the event center you could hear sirens all around us, my husband was a bit nervous at first, with Arizona interpreting the law on concentrates and neither one of us ever committing a crime the fear of the police breaking the event up weighed heavily on our minds. The line was around the building it was an amazing sight, patients waiting in line for an hour plus at times just to get a glimpse of the inside.
As you’re getting checked in you can see the smoke billowing from the building as patients are handed pre-rolls to smoke, there were three dabbing stations 1 was a THC concentrate and the other two were CBD dabbing stations, so the smoke in the air was getting a good mixture of CBD to help maintain a semi-clear head. As we walked in we saw lines at every booth, some lines at time circled the booths just to get a chance to spin the wheel and get free gear they were giving away hats, cups, pre-rolls, pamphlets, education, education, education, and even giving us the opportunity to see the products they submitted to the contest.
I was almost immediately greeted by a fellow Instagram dabber @dadneedsdabs and his beautiful wife with Venom Extracts, their booth was in the middle of the building and as we stood there smoking a pre-roll I was handed, the heat started to overwhelm me a bit, looking around at all the smoke in the air fanning ourselves we decided to take a small break and do a live outside and check in with our fan, we started to make our way to the outside eating area. There were 3 or 4 food trucks outside and a large eating area with several people eating, some just sitting and trying to take a break from the heat inside, however, it was a hot and muggy day here in Phoenix Arizona so it’s not much of a break. We went live on YouTube and Instagram with all the medical marijuana patients, the music blaring in the background, and meeting some really cool people like @A2ZPurle, got some amazing feedback from fans such as the carcinogens levels and think it’s amazing these issues are on the consumers’ minds, so we will be doing a show on the testing procedures what Arizona requires for Cannabis testing and what we need to include on these tests.
Overall the event was a lot of fun, I personally didn’t have anxiety about smoking in public, however, a few others did, there were a couple of panic attacks that I head of and the fire department for EMS was called and had to respond to a couple of people over smoking and not wanting to wake up after dabbing so please remember your ability if it’s a new thing for you or your just a light user that’s okay know your limitations. This is a medicinal product at this point, being the responsible user only furthers our cause, cannabis is meant to heal it has the wonderful side effects that we all love like euphoria or easing the symptoms from major illness like cancer, HIV, chronic illness, chronic pain, arthritis, mental disorders, addiction sufferers, and so many others but its the main purpose is to heal. Heal the mind, the body, and help the spirit attain balance the side effects are a bonus to help us maintain a happy mind and body.
Thank you Errl Cup and all the attendees I will tag as many as I was able to talk to and thank you all for your time it was a busy crazy event and I loved talking to you all.
This morning started to like too many other mornings sick to my stomach and I hate it so I decided to do my first dab this morning with you guys, I did a hot and hurtful dab to show the first couple of minutes after my first dab, and to talk about the difference in effects of concentrates vs. flower. This morning I woke up with a pain level of a 9, the ulcerative colitis and interstitial cystitis had been acting up so nausea and vomiting are brutal. I did a large dab of 707 Headband Concentrate a pungent earthy, sweet, pepper with a diesel aftertaste Indica from Wickenburg Alternative Medicine, I and most smokers call these hot and hurtful because the pepper diesel taste mixed with a more potent concentrate can knock the breath out of you for a couple of minutes, as you see. I am instantly hit with a slight head euphoria starting right between the eyes, it takes me about 3 minutes to recover from the first hit in the morning, calming the pain level to a comfortable 6, basically no sharp shooting pain from my bladder, as long as I control coughing for the first 3 minutes I can avoid any further vomiting, however in order to get an appetite and eat I will do another dab before the end of the video, that dab will also further reduce my pain level to a 4, and calm my shaking. I believe it’s because of all the years of pharmaceutical abuse I deal with horrible daily side effects like chronic pain, chronic depression, lower immune system, bleeding disorders, neurological disorders and the one I hate the most the eating disorder have left me now looking at safer more natural remedies that keep my loved ones from watching me die a horrific death from cancer and everything else medically wrong.
With Medical Cannabis Strains like 707 Headband concentrates, my loved ones no longer come home to find a women laying on the bathroom floor with a garbage can next to her waiting for the next bout of dry heaving and diarrhea, they will try to pick her up and put her back into bed only to feel a boney sweat soaked, pale shell of a person begging for the torture to stop. They will be strong brushing her hair back and telling her she’s beautiful and trying to lift her spirits wishing for a way to stop the torture for them. This is torture to an entire family, not just the patient my family now looks forward to coming home and smoking with me when I’m that bad they even find a way to get it to me so I can take cannabis in any form and feel better. With cannabis helping me with Chronic Pain, nausea, and even curing my cancer I am a happier person, more inquisitive, helpful, and ALIVE but most of all I’m healing.
I’m never going to be perfect and I don’t want to be, my past isn’t going to change but I have a new perspective a passion to show the world that someone like me can unlearn decades of lies and use a small part of what I have been through to show another side of survival, LIFE that’s worth a second look cannabis in the world of medicine.
About an hour after I smoked I was still in a good euphoric state, however, the welcomed sounds of hunger have started, normally as a first meal or small snack I eat is Malto Meal maple and brown sugar, of course, I will normally be ok with a small glass of milk and the start to my writing, it’s now been a couple of hours since I last smoked live and my pain level is on the rise I’m back to a comfortable 6, so no sharp bladder spasms and pain, I have eaten about ½ cup of the Malto meal and milk and kept it down, I’m almost finished with this review and I’ve stated the article for the next show so I have been productive but I’m at the point in re-medicate for the afternoon. When I re-medicate for the afternoon it allows me to get a few things around the house done before being active starts to become painful and I have to rest, so like doing dishes or some laundry, I will then lay down and rest for an hour or two watching a movie sometimes sleeping depending on how I feel I get up ready to be able to make dinner, normal daily or nightly routines. One of the worst things at times can be being intimate, having serious bladder issues means the pain is right there and when the bladder spasms it causes a very sharp pain to radiate and these spasms can last hours and days when my bladder is pissed, just being intimate can cause the bladder to become pissed and become infected, it’s a torturous thing you think you will get used to using a catheter all the time or at least it wouldn’t be as painful but you really don’t.
We all deserve a good quality of life, our families deserve the opportunity medical cannabis affords us in all its forms, and cultivators and dispensaries that have been here helping us patients achieve a healthier safer quality of life deserve safe federal passage. It’s time for the Cannabis prohibition to end, let the people benefit, heal, and rebuild using this resource what can it hurt?
Today started out like most mornings only my stomach is really irritated, it always seems the morning after I eat pretty well my stomach punishes me, which does make me question addiction more specifically trading one addiction for another. This is a touchy subject amongst smokers most believe it’s not an addictive substance, it’s natural, and a safer form of pain management. I worked until just over two years ago, thanks to cannabis I made an informed decision to focus on my health issues, and the controversial Medical Marijuana.
Merlot Concentrate was made by W.A.M. Wickenburg Alternative Medicine, this beautiful golden sugar granules type substance is a cannabis concentrate sugar wax. This Pungent tasting Skunky, earthy, sweet potato, concentrate aids with chronic pain, stress, euphoric, nausea, and appetite enhancer. Since I have an eating disorder I tend to lean towards strains that help increase appetite and calm nausea, if I can control the pain from the Interstitial Cystitis and the ulcerative colitis I can normally control the urges to restrict food intake, I don’t look in the mirror I don’t see myself poorly so when I restrict it’s a way of control within myself, I can’t control the pain but I can control what the pain makes me do like vomit. This is not a healthy way to look at food and control but it’s honest, so many people see a medical record and a face and assume.
With cannabis activism today there is one thing we all have in common more today than ever before, addiction. Addiction in today’s society is out of control, the problem is we aren’t all suffering by a physical ailment that can be seen every day by everyone. Is trading one addiction for another always bad? I am a different person on cannabis than on opioids, I can think more clearly, I eat appropriately or at least more appropriately, I can relax and feel better, and I have at least a 20% cancer cell reduction.
With cannabis actually helping me make healthier choices, I am now a full participant in life, I’m happy, I’m still in some pain but nothing like it was, and I’ve never been happier to have a second chance at life!
I want to thank all Cannabis activists, educators, cultivators, and supporters without cannabis I wouldn’t be here today, that’s why I started this channel and my Freemycure.org blog site. I took 100 grams of RSO live for the world to see cannabis isn’t scary, I smoke flower and concentrate live to show there is nothing criminal about Medical Cannabis and honestly it’s so much better on the human body than anything Big Pharma has given me, so again my question remains is there something wrong with trading one addiction for another (specifically, Opioids vs Cannabis for my chronic pain)? Please post the answer below Thank you lots of Love Nicola Dickens
Today I’m reviewing Birthday cake concentrate from Wickenburg Alternative Medicine in Surprise Arizona. Birthday Cake is a 50\50 hybrid that leans more towards the indica effects. This beautiful golden clear concentrate doesn’t really have an odor, however, the taste is a pungent fruity sweet vanilla flavor, she doesn’t have the pepper burn like so many concentrates I have used. Birthday cake descends from Girls scout CookiesCherryherry Pie, I feel the effects of cannabis in my throat first with this strain making it feel like your throat is swelling a little, it’s not painful but as the effects move down my throat I can feel the cannabis relaxing my shoulders like a warm blanket covering me.
This evening before I smoked the birthday cake concentrate my pain level was at 9, and the first time I smoked cannabis today. Because of cannabis prices over the last couple of years, I have had to learn how to ration the medication so I can get as much pain management coverage as possible, I have also learned that no matter how many pills I take some residual pain is good, it reminds me I’m alive. I have been watching some of the documentaries on the opioid crisis, listening to some of the survivor’s stories, and can’t help but wonder why?
Over the last couple of months, I’ve been writing an article, technically the second part of the article, but I was really having a hard time finishing it, I finally finished the piece last night. Writing the truth is painful, it’s stressful, but mostly it’s raw. When a child grows up, were supposed to be strong, inquisitive, smart, and standing up for the rights of the weak, what we are really growing up into was a group of people that wanted to make their lives better for their kids than it was for them growing up and in more ways than not we failed, we overprotected our kids tried to teach them through our mistakes when in reality we were so damaged we couldn’t see far enough to completely help anyone.
As of last week, an Arizona Court made a decision saying concentrates in Arizona are illegal, I’m not sure how this is going to affect us yet, but please keep in mind when you’re a terminally ill patient, a cancer patient, epileptic, chronic pain, or mentally inadequate this concentrate helps us continue on with our day. When we smoke the flower it helps, sometimes not a lot but it helps, when it comes to my pain flower is not adequate alone, I use the concentrates for better pain management coverage and smoke flower between dabs to keep the pain at bay, I have infused honey and added it to tea, I’ve cooked with it, and I smoke it, am I addicted…I’m not sure but one thing I know for a fact I like who I have become in the last couple of years so much better than I was, cancer may still take my life but I won’t have any regrets. Cannabis has given me a second chance, a second chance to live, really be alive and I’m so thankful, I share my story with other patients like me that have basically slept walked through their lives like I did and I offer unconditional support, we all have demons some are better than others but the only way to beat them is to accept our shortcomings and learn from our mistakes and the most important part is non-judgement. Sometimes we just need a little help and that’s ok.
