When the diagnosis changes

For anyone with an autoimmune disease, it is well known that it can take years, sometimes decades to have a solid diagnosis with which to FINALLY come to terms with, and to be able to gather up all the right tools to handle. What gets frustrating, if all those years weren’t infuriating enough on their…

RSO – Not all are created equal

If you have been around cannabis for any amount of time you have heard of RSO, or Rick Simpson Oil, and I hope you have checked out what it is and his amazing story. If not, let’s take a quick moment to discuss who Rick Simpson is, and what he created. Rick Simpson is a…

Addiction vs Dependence

I have come to realize when you are discussing medical cannabis with someone who has never consumed the plant before that next to intoxication, addiction is the biggest concern. Even when you discuss this with someone who works at a dispensary, or even a substance abuse counselor you find that the answers are inconsistent and…
