Strength in purpose

Needless to say there have been interruptions, delays, a back surgery, and now a global pandemic! During all this time I have maintained my presence on my other social media platforms, engaging with new and exciting people and finding out a lot about myself. If you aren’t following, please join me on Instagram @spoonfulofmarijuana! As…

30+ Years of Addiction

If you go and Google addiction, you are going to come up with a whole bunch of definitions.Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief…

Commercial Interruption

As everyone knows, my intention had been to share my 30 year story of addiction this last week. However, my significant other apparently had other plans for us! On Monday July 8th, he was slammed by a Grand Mal seizure out of no where that put him in the Intensive Care Unit for the majority…

A little hiccup

This will be the first time I have written a post sitting in bed, but the last couple of weeks my body and I have been having a bit of a disagreement on what needs to get done. The body has won, so some self care has been on the menu, which always leads to…

Terpenes! What they are and what they mean to you!

I have thrown a lot of words at you, and a lot of information now about myself and about cannabis and I keep repeating one word, here and on the rest of my social media, TERPENE!

A Wrench in the works…

When I first received my medical marijuana card I was very naive in regards to it’s uses, it’s forms, and truly all of the amazing things it could do. Like a lot of people, I had smoked a joint with friends in high school and college, and a few times since then as well, but…

Sativa?! Indica?! What’s it all mean?

So I have given you a lot of information about me, my life and my journey but I haven’t really talked much about cannabis in general. So this is a little post to just get you familiar with some terms, if you aren’t already, and to get the wheels going in your own head about…

Find your normal

Today is one of those days where I need to be a little slower, spend more time medicating and less time sitting at the computer. So I have decided to do a short post to get people thinking. What is normal to you? Is it what “most” people are doing? Is is the routine you…

What I use it for…..

So before I just start sharing information and jamming all kinds of things down your throat, how about let’s talk about some simple things, like what I use cannabis for, at this point. I am a firm believer that we are NOT our illnesses and that we cannot use them to define us, but in…

The Journey Begins

I had originally intended to have my first post be what I had written in the “About Me” section, but it just didn’t seem to say everything I wanted to say in my first post! So here I am trying to figure out exactly who I am, and realizing that is a fluid answer. I…
