1 pound sliced fresh mushrooms 1 Cup Risata Moscato d’ Asti wine
1 4 pounds beef rib roast Ground black pepper
2 grams RSO Rick Simpson Oil ½ teaspoon lemon pepper
½ teaspoon garlic salt ½ teaspoon Montreal steak seasoning
6 oz beef broth ¼ cup cornstarch
Place mushrooms in the bottom of the crockpot add 1 cup of Risata wine, or really any sweet wine would be perfect, all the seasonings beef broth and mix all of it up in the crockpot. Place the roast on top of the mixture and using a small measuring cup scoop pour some of the mixture over the roast. Cook on high for about 4 hours. After the roast has cooked for the 4 hours you’re going to add the RSO or Rick Simpson oil to the mixture. Mix the mixture well covering the roast with some of the juices and turn the crockpot down to low. Allow the mixture to cook on low for another 4 hours mixing and pouring sauce over the roast periodically flipping the roast over an hour to ensure full infusion. For the last half hour check the roast it should pull apart easily with a fork you will add the ¼ cup cornstarch stirring periodically until the sauce is a thick gravy. Serve with sides.
This was supposed to be a Vista Print Promo Box, so for that, I apologize it ended up being a rationalization on the Medtronic’s implant and I opened up and spoke for the first time about whether or not this implant is actually working. Remember my next step is bladder removal and I’m really not liking the choices at this point, Medtronic’s calls every 2 days to go over my symptoms so they can see whether it’s working and I have to keep a bladder urine journal that notates the date and time I use the bathroom, the volume I void each time (voiding is peeing), and whether I use a catheter or if I can void anything without the assistance of a catheter. At this point I use a catheter and haven’t been able to void on my own for several years, I also can feel the bladder spasms every day and before the implant I was counting up to 50 spasms during the waking hours and I since the implant I have had anywhere from 15 to 25 spams a day so that is a drastic decrease.
I have a disease called Interstitial cystitis, with this disease there is no cure but there are a few ways to make life a little more bearable this implant is supposed to help control the bladder allowing me to void without a catheter, fingers crossed I still use a catheter for now, but I am being positive. I also have a special diet avoiding acidic foods or spicy foods. Along with watching what I eat I have to stay as hydrated as possible that means I drink up to a half gallon of water every day or more if possible keeping my body fully flushed is extremely important because of IC letting the bladder “have a day off” or not drinking water will cause a flare up. A flare-up is when the bladder gets these little cysts type things that pop up and cover the inner lining of the bladder causing infections, severe spasms, nausea and vomiting, fevers, hot and cold sweats, severe pain, and bleeding and believe me when I say you don’t want to mess with any animal that bleeds for a week a month a doesn’t die and sadly I’m not talking about the monthly friend every woman is blessed with.
With as much as the diseases I have, it sucks and we all die one day, as for death I’m not afraid I have excepted it will happen one day, not anytime soon thank god but I can honestly say before I started cannabis I prayed for death to come sooner even “joking” when I went to the hospital saying just to send me out back to the firing squad. Going through cancer treatment IC treatments, UC treatments, plus just opening up my bank account would stress me out to the point of ulcers. I was on 24 different Big Pharma medications to control all the side effects from the treatments and honestly abused opioids probably in an attempt to subconsciously commit suicide and the depression.
Depression is hell on the entire body, mind, and soul. Depression is finally starting to get the attention it deserves, when I get depressed I really have a hard time doing my vlogs, writing up my articles, doing the actual weed reviews isn’t really all that special but it’s therapeutic for me, when I first started I didn’t have a clue of what cannabis was going to do to me and when I went to platforms like YouTube were using cannabis recreationally and they were doing full gram challenges falling over drooling and as funny as it was it freaked me out as a medical user, I’m not doing this just for the “high” effects, I’m doing this for life-saving medicine because if cancer didn’t get me the depression almost did. I didn’t really tell anyone at the time but when I first started cannabis I had a suicide plan. I was done with the pain, with the pills and the opioids, I was done with life there had to be something better. Thank God I gave cannabis a full chance, I found a purpose again with cannabis and I started making real videos that show how cannabis really affects the daily user a regular woman that has the same daily struggles as the rest of you.
I do apologize about this rant video but I thank you in the same turn being able to talk this through has been extremely helpful. When a company want to know how do you feel about having a 2 foot tail for the rest of my life or a bladder bag on my side or down my leg is a worse choice a little improvement is better than no improvement so thank you for listening and helping me work through this very difficult life choice.
White Widow hails from Brazilian Sativa Landrace and a resin heavy South Indian Indica, with THC levels between 18-25% with CBD 1% and CBN 1%. White Widow is one of the most infamous strains bred in the Netherlands in the 90’s and has been visited the shelves of most European coffee shops since. With White Widow’s higher THC content makes her ideal for stress, depression, chronic pain, fatigue, and muscle spasms with the effects of relaxed, happy, uplifted, euphoric, and creative and the negatives of this strain unlike Big Pharma I could only find 5 Dry mouth and eyes, dizzy, paranoid, and anxious. If you do experience any of these negative side effects or her high is just too much for you consume some CBD and it will counter those “heady” effects.
White Widow has an earthy, woody, flowery, sweet, fruity taste that has grown worldwide recognition due to the TV show Weeds. White Widow was given its name because it’s covered in white crystals, with me this strain is a great daytime strain giving a boost of energy with a mixed head euphoria, creativity, and stimulating allowing my fingers wander over the keys stringing letters into words and then into paragraphs.
The White Widow Concentrate is a thick sugar wax consistency that is dark golden brown in color. Her effects will usually last about 2 hours allowing me the time to clean my kitchen with less pain or write a few more paragraphs of my book. As far as hunger or munchies she is a winner it’s time to learn moderation, being able to eat recently has been amazing, tasting the flavors and creating new infused dishes, however, overeating is also extremely painful when I’m having a flare up of my ulcerative colitis.
Overall White Widow has been amazing, thank you Wickenburg Alternative Medicine it’s been my pleasure to review your cannabis!!
Banana Split descends from OG Kush and Banana Strain, her THC tests around 25%, and I’m not sure on the CBD as the information about this particular strain is lacking. I picked this concentrate up from Wickenburg Alternative Medicine in Surprise, AZ and the concentrate itself has a sweet berry spice, pungent aroma. Banana Split is a 70\30 Indica dominant strain. I actually did 2 video reviews on this strain, because I did a hot and hurtful dab and it went straight to my head, a hot and hurtful dab, if you don’t know, is where you get the banger bright red and dab. The effects can be pretty funny for onlookers as well as intimidating by doing a hot and hurtful dab it’s going to hurt for anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes, it knocks my breath out, I get hot all over and start sweating. Once you get your breath back the uncomfortable cramping stops, I start feeling the euphoria and pain-relieving effects of the cannabis pretty much immediately, the antinausea effects will start kicking in about 10 minutes after I smoke and I have to be careful not to cough too much because the first dab can trigger vomiting.
I was super excited to try this strain, and it didn’t disappoint, she has a sweet, berry, spice flavor with the aftertaste of a ripe banana. The effects of Banana Split are relaxed, euphoric, happy, sleepy, and hungry. I also warn you, doing a good big hot dab of this will give you a great couch lock effect that will even allow a midafternoon nap. This strain is great for Insomnia, Stress, depression, pain, and lack of appetite. I found the munchies started to come on after about 30 minutes and honestly I probably could have just fallen asleep but as most of you know I am trying to curve my eating disorder. The negative effects for this strain are pretty simple and basic Dry mouth and eyes, dizzy, paranoid, and anxious, which I really didn’t experience however a large hot dab is more for an experienced dabber.
I actually want to do another review of this strain using both the flower and the concentrate I haven’t had a chance to do a review this way. Showing different forms of the same products such as flower and concentrate, I’m hoping will help not only curve the stigma around medical marijuana but encourage people to do some of their own research.
Overall Wickenburg Alternative Medicine you never disappoint, thank you so much for all you do.
Welcome back to Free My Cure. My name is Nicola and I am a Terminal Stage 4 cancer patient. I turned to cannabis 4 years ago and I haven’t looked back since. I have improved my quality of life by 10 percent and I don’t plan on stopping here. Join me on the journey to find a cure for my cancer using cannabis!
Triangle Kush is an indica dominant hybrid 85\15 with a THC rating in the 20% with a 1% CBD, and her exact origins are unknown. The concentrate is a thick sugar wax consistency it has a dark golden brown coloring to it, the wax has very little smell to it and after talking to the owner I learned that outside factors can really affect an inside grow and play havoc with the products like this shatter because we have been super humid lately it will cause the shatter to clump and it looks like a sugar wax.
The taste of Triangle Kush at first will knock your breath out with a heavy citrus, sweet, spicy, earthy and skunky taste, with a strong pepper burn to your throat that will last about 10 minutes once that subsides you can really feel the heady euphoric, relaxed, happy, sleepy, and uplifted to treat a variety of ailments such as stress, insomnia, migraines, depression, and lack of appetite, and as all medications have the negative side effects of dry eyes and mouth, headache, paranoia, and dizzy.
Triangle Kush is officially the last entry in this review or tasting journal, I started this book on April 16, 2018, it was a gift given to me by M.C. Chino from Palatable persuasions and Smuggle Portland in Washington State. I was lucky enough to be on his vacation route towards the beginning of this year and we sat down and smoked, I learned the importance of Q-tips that day. 64 pages filled with handwritten flower write-ups, full description wright ups (that are posted on freemycure.org as well as dispensary tags) with images, and full ratings. Each review I do takes a couple of hours, not just to film the review, but full wright up, research on the specific strain or product, photos, posting on all social media and using the product a few times so I can be comfortable with it, there’s nothing like trying to talk about something without the proper research… embarrassing! I do this because when I was looking for this information it was hard to find, I was afraid of cannabis once upon a time and one lesson I always believed in “People have different reasons for the way they live their lives. You cannot put everyone’s reasons in the same box.” Kevin Spacey, I use cannabis for the purpose of pain management, cancer, chronic nausea, Interstitial Cystitis, ulcerative colitis, depression, eating disorder, and PTSD you or your neighbor may use it for mental illness, stress, anxiety, or just recreationally it doesn’t mean we are doing something wrong, it certainly doesn’t mean we’re going to use a substance like crack or heroin, and we are not bad people rather people that are looking for a more natural way to treat some of our ailments and provide ourselves or loved ones with a better quality of life.
I would love to take a second and show the new branding packages W.A.M. is now using I really love the branding on the package. As for Triangle Kush weather your in a love triangle or The Bermuda Triangle I have added this strain to my favorite list because it takes a little while to hit you but when it does watch out because too big of a dab of this girls will have you fast asleep for a week or at least the weekend.
Wickenburg Alternative Medicine you have outdone yourself once again, the taste… clean, the look… beautiful golden brown, and the effects… intoxicating. Thank you for all you do and I’ll see you guys again soon!
Black and Blue or Blackberry Blueberry is a cross between Blackberry Kush and DJ Shorts Blueberry blended together in a sweet, skunky, sweet, blueberry taste that will have your mouth watering after the first good smell of this strain. Black and Blue has a skunky, earthy, sweet, spicy berry flavor, I recommend taking a good smell of this strain out of your grinder she won’t disappoint.
I’m not really sure what the exact percentage of this strain, however, she is an Indica dominant hybrid, I’m also unaware of the THC levels and the CBD levels of this strain as well. Black and Blue buds are a beautiful mixture of a couple of different greens, golds, oranges, with a beautiful purple hug. The effects of this strain are relaxing, happy, uplifted, euphotic, and sleepy. The medicinal effects of this strain will help you with pain reduction, stress, insomnia, depression, and inflammation and the negative effects as pretty typical dry mouth and eyes, headache, and paranoia.
Remember if you are ever “to high” or the “negative effects” are more than you can handle CBD will help relieve these effects. I have personally never been to this point, I have however had some friends that have and keeping a little CBD around will help you with sleep, inflammation, as well as the nutritional value it offers.
Black and Blue overall is a great strain, I’ve been smoking a lot of wax lately so I will load a bowl of this before bed and chase it with a nice dab and I’m pretty much set for the night. She has a great taste, smell, and effects for beginner to intermediate smokers and for chronic smokers, it’s a great relaxing and kicking back with friends or a nice movie for two. Overall Wickenburg Alternative Medicine Black and Blue is a great smoke, tastes clean and fresh, and her bud has a perfectly crisp snap, W.A.M. you don’t disappoint!!
This strain I have reviewed before however for this particular caregiver they have been caught in the middle of the state and federal loopholes that devastate caregivers and legal dispensaries today, only this one wasn’t from federal, state, or local officials it was local businesses however that’s neither here nor there, they are back with this first harvest of Thin Mint.
High Integrality Caregivers Thin Mint taste good an earthy, sweet, mint, skunky taste that will have you hitting the kitchen with the munchies. I got the pleasure of seeing these beautiful flowers during harvest and the different shades of green with a beautiful purple huge covered in a light sprinkle of pure white trichrome, really quite beautiful the changes these plants go through from veg. to harvest always leaves me in awe of the plants themselves really change during flower they don’t just grow flowers.
Thin Mint was created by combing Durban Poison and OG Kush she has a THC rating between 20-28%. This beauty comes on quick and the effects last anywhere for 1-2 hours for me, but I can get a lot of writing done in that hour or two being a 50\50 hybrid. Thin Mint GCS won the Seattle Cannabis cup.
The effects of this strain are relaxed, euphoric, happy, uplifted, sleepy, and energizing which is always intriguing to me. Medicinally she treats things like stress, depression, pain, Insomnia, and lack of appetite. To be fair the negative effects of this strain are dry mouth and eyes, paranoid, anxious and dizzy I know there always has to be negative effects, however, I didn’t really experience any of these. By the time the review was over and I medicated my pain level went from an 8 to a 5 with some occasional sharp pains that I can live with. Thank you High Integrity Caregivers it’s good to see things are back on track and you’re doing well… Cheers my friends!!!
Skywalker OG or otherwise known as “Skywalker OG Kush” is a heavy Indica strain 85\15 she’s crossed the popular Skywalker X OG Kush strains. Skywalker OG smells like spicy herbs and sweet fruits by tasting the bud I can taste the natural flavors of the plant as well as any impurities like pesticides or leftover foods not fully flushed from the plant before harvest.
Over the weekend I stopped in at my favorite smoke shop The Little Amsterdam and picked up this cool 2 gram Yoda head bowl I’m in love with it and it was less than $15. I brought it home to my husband because we have all these small bowls that you have to load every 4 drags and it’s irritating because your watching something you have to stop what your watching to load another bowl especially if you smoke like us, and I handed it to him and said there is that big enough and we both laughed, loaded it and started seeing how long it would take us to smoke this bowl, by the way, it’s 15-20 drags.
Skywalker OG has a THC level of about 20-25% on average and a 2% CBD level. This strain is a very euphoric strain, relaxing from my head to my toes, taking my pain level from an 8 this morning to a comfortable 5, even if I continue to smoke at this level the pain doesn’t really decrease any further I will just become more euphoric and giggly and you guys have watched my “100 drag challenge” video you know. At this point I can go either way if I sit and watch a movie I can relax into a euphoric couch lock and eventually I’d fall asleep, or I start on a project like writing, painting, doing another video that kind of thing I will relax into a rhythm until the project is done and sometimes get a little wordy. Skywalker OG comes on slowly, kind of creeping up behind you, sometimes taking up to 10 minutes to feel the effects, but as I smoke I will start to relax my back and abdomen muscles and that’s when I know I’m going to start getting to that feeling of comfort, not fully out of pain but sitting at a comfortable enough level get my day going.
No “pain management” be it pills, physical therapy, or medical marijuana is supposed to take all your pain away, we are getting older and the activities we’ve done in our youth even a year ago are going to take there toll on your body and your going to feel it my mom used to call them growing pains when I was a kid I used to just think growing pains were just for kids but we abuse and have abused our bodies and for some of us for many years we’re going to feel it, that’s normal making all the pain go away isn’t sadly, because we all have to wake up sometime.
I started this channel to show a real person using a real plant bought from reputable local dispensaries and caregivers, and that it’s not scary, I’m not doing anything crazy and stupid, I don’t hurt people or animals and a matter of fact please stop putting it on social media I know we need to be aware of it and I believe we are so please take the horrible images and videos down I feel for those poor animals and I can’t get the image out of my head for the longest of time. With this plant and the flower I smoked this morning I was able to eat, do the few dishes I have left, start dinner in the crock pot, I love crockpot cooking I’m going to be doing an infusion series on crockpot cooking I think will be fun. I have been able to walk away from opioids and that’s really the biggest thing for me the creativity, the happiness in my life, this new honestly kind of scary journey I have embarked on are just the perks. Not to mention the friends I have made in person and online have made this journey the most special journey I have taken this far thank you. I was one of the lucky ones I was chasing that dragon once trying to find that same level of happy and pain free I once had, chasing a dream my first Medical Marijuana epiphany as I call was an eye opener I saw all the mistakes I had made and suddenly I knew how to start fixing them I figured out how to get my life back on track, and that really scares me especially now with all the celebs thinking they can beat it, they are invincible, I thought that once too. My heart and prayers go out to Mac Millers family and loved ones you will be missed you’ve knocked, knocked, knocked your way into our hearts.
Now back to our regularly scheduled review Skywalker OG is a great Indica for anyone looking for a focused euphoric cerebral creativity or just want a great couch lock and an even better nap Skywalker OG is one of my favorites alongside a good Paris OG. Good Job Wickenburg Alternative medicine, you guys have quickly become one of my favorite dispensaries in the Phoenix Valley!!
This Strain Review is quite unique in a few aspects, Afghani Orange is a 70\30 Sativa dominate hybrid 70\30 Live Resin!!!! So, what does that mean, simply put if I have a tooth that is really hurting me I can take a piece of this live resin and put it directly on the tooth at the gum line and it will numb some of the pain away!! I know, pretty freaking cool, it takes about 2 to 3 minutes to work and it’s gone and who doesn’t like that idea!!
Afghani Orange parent strains are Orange Ghost mother and Lashkar Gah\White ’91 father giving her the sweet taste earthy, fruity, tart and sweet, with a hint of citrus OMG so good. Miguel donated this sample to us and I really appreciate the thought, if you get a chance to sample this beauty it’s definitely worth the time, she holds high levels of terpinole terpenes.
Terpinolene terpenes (a basic break down). Cannabis contains up to 200 different terpenes, there are 10 primary terpenes and 20 secondary terpenes that occur in significant concentrations. Terpinolene or Terpinole is one of the 3 most beneficial to your health, the top 3 being Ocimene, Terpinolene, and Guaiol.
Terpinolene is basically responsible for the fresh citrusy aroma and flavor, it also is found in nutmeg, tea tree, Conifers, apples, cumin, lilacs. The medically benefits of terpinolene is anti-cancer, antioxidants, sedative, antibacterial, and antifungal. Terpinolene is most commonly found in Sativa dominant strains.
Afghani Orange is a thick creamy dark orange brown concentrate that has a THC level of 18-19% with a 1% CBD, she takes effect quick when you vape the concentrate the effects last anywhere from 1 1\2 -3 hours depending on the person, the high for me was a thickening, stimulating, and creative buzz lulling my body into a comfortable spasm free couch lock for the first time I used this medication, however the more I smoked I found a creative energetic buzz, allowing me to dive into my writing for an hour or two.
Afghani Orange helps with conditions like; chronic pain, stress, insomnia, lack of appetite, inflammation, anxiety, crones disease, and nausea leaving the patient relaxed, hungry, sleepy, creative, and uplifted effects. Overall this is a great tasting and looking concentrate, Miguel you did an amazing job cultivating this beauty and I can’t wait to try more of you products. Thank you Miguel for all the love you put into the care of your beautiful ladies, it really shows in the end product.
Turquoise Jeep descends from DJ Shorts Blueberry and Goji OG and is a 50\50 hybrid, her name comes from the unique and magnificent colors this plant produces in flower. Her amazing flavor profile of citrus, sweet berry, and earthy undertones is the perfection of taste.
Today I am reviewing the concentrate form of Turquois Jeep from Wickenburg Alternative Medicine. The shatter is a golden brown sugar wax consistency, I’ve talked to the guys over at W.A.M. and this is a concentrate that has been affected by the humidity, which has been very high lately. Not much is known about Turquoise Jeep online as far as it’s THC levels, or CBD levels so I’ll tell you how it makes me feel. I vaped this concentrate in my bong, the first taste it’s very sweet berry citrus, and earthy. She goes down like a smooth pepper, I first fell it in my throat as it moves down my body and up into my head I start feeling happy, relaxed, euphoric, focused, and sleepy. Medicinally this strain would help with fatigue, nausea, stress, pain, lack of apatite, and muscle spasms. The negatives with this strain are Dry eyes and mouth, dizzy, paranoid, and headaches.
Overall the taste is amazing and other than not looking like a traditional shatter I’m still very happy with the end product as always Wickenburg Alternative Medicine this is a beautiful bouquet of fresh sweet citricy berries that I will enjoy, Thank you.
