I don't know how many of you saw that BS story that Fox News & others were pushing the past few days as they eagerly attempted to drum up more hatred for #plantmedicine. Not surprisingly, that story is not true. It is a misrepresentation of the facts.
.
We did NOT just see our first cannabis overdose death.
.
"Humans have been getting high on marijuana for millennia, and there has never been a recorded case of a fatal overdose." โ€”Nick Wing
.
Here's a more accurate accounting of what cannabis did or did not have to do with that poor baby's tragic passing.
.
Stay informed. Learn the facts. Battle the misinformation.

I have been away from my second home @theclinicmundelein for too long! So nice to see @itscow3 & restock on my medicine. You always take good care of me because youโ€™re amazing. Thanks for making life better. And a huge thank-you to all the Illinois cultivators that bring us incredible, high quality medicine. ๐Ÿ™โœจ๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ’•

How did I get here?
.
This past April, a few years after battling the rare & acute Cauda Equina Syndrome with two emergency spinal surgeries, I was diagnosed with the rare chronic disease Adhesive Arachnoiditis (AA).
.
AA is a disease borne of trauma to the spine, often in the form of medical harm.
.
It is so intense & emotionalโ€” and like much of what you all struggle with, it threatens to take everything from you. When I was diagnosed, I was already in a world of hurt. I had already been chronically-ill & hurting for 9.5 years. But this scared me. The idea that I may not walk. The idea that my bladder issues could worsen. The thought that the best years of my life were behind me without doubt. I was terrified. I was on a slippery slope, & it the days were dark. Life wasn't looking too good to me. I was just sick of suffering. I was sick of fighting so damn hard for every breath.
.
I knew I had to do something to save my life. And that's when I found medical cannabis. ๐ŸŒฟ .
.
Out of all the pain relief it's given me, out of all the sleep, out of all the functionality it has returned to me, what I have to thank it for most is giving me back my will to live.
.
Adhesive Arachnoiditis is a meanie monster. But I am not that. I am not any of the diseases with which I've been labeled. And neither are you. We are individuals. We are community. We are #strongertogether. And #itgetsbetter. ๐Ÿ’•โœจ

Not Your Grandma's Rub is a medicated topical that is hand-crafted with love in small batches. Its is comprised of whole plant cannabis & essential oils infused into a base of coconut or almond oil with beeswax. It contains the cannabinoids THC, CBD, & CBN.
.
This topical is perfect for soothing headaches, stiff joints, muscle & nerve pain. I've even used it to ease stubborn kidney pain. As someone with #Lupus & other inflammatory connective tissue disease, plus a rare spinal cord disease, I'm no stranger to pain & reliable topicals are important to me.
.
I love that you can control the consistencyโ€” if you want it a little firmer, put it in the fridge for a bit; if you like it softer, leave it out at room temp.
.
It smells medicinal but not of cannabis per se, making it good for medicating discreetly. It's smooth & gentle, even on my sensitive skin. It's nice that there's no capsaicin in this (I have an allergy) or mentholโ€” I love menthol, but sometimes the cooling sensation can be too much overstim during a flare. This is an easy-to-use topical that is likely to work its magic without causing any irritation.
.
Take a bit of this powerful topical & rub it in to penetrate your tissues. A little goes a long way. It warms up fast. The very best part? Relief comes quickly & lasts! Voilร !

Honey Straws by @naturesgraceil are, to my knowledge, the only infused honey in the Illinois Medical Cannabis market. They are outstanding! Sipping on some lemon herbal tea made better by these lovely Honey Straws right now.
.
They taste ridiculously delightful & do medicate me effectively. ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒฟโœจ It is so nice to get pain relief from a hot cup of tea with some honey addedโ€” or drizzle honey into or over your beverage or food of choice. You can also eat it straight. I can see these being great for medicating discreetly during holidays & get-togethers. I like that there are so many options here. Thanks for bringing medicated honey to Illinois, Nature's Grace. ๐Ÿฏโœจ๐Ÿ
.
Nature's Grace sources all of their honey from a local honey farm, Chatterton Farms in Fulton County, IL. Consuming local honey can help reduce allergies! Clearly a bonus for an already topshelf product.
.
Perhaps the trickiest thing about this medible is dosing. The Honey Straws come in a 2-pack. Each straw contains 40 mg of THC and about 3 mg THCa via cannabis CO2 oil. I used a little less than a 1/4 tsp the first go round & found it to be a perfect bedtime dose for meโ€” but I'm a lightweight when it comes to edibles.
.
As always, experiment to find your groove & remember that it's always easier to take more later than less after the fact! Don't stress the numbers... just find what works for you.
.
Happy, safe, responsible medicating, #cannafam!

I've been sick with the flu lately & Clementine Cooler Surp has saved me!

Surp has given me relief from full-body aches & allowed me to sleep when it otherwise seemed impossible. ๐Ÿ’™๐ŸŒ”๐Ÿ’คโœจ I'll take this over a pHARMa OTC cold & flu remedy any day.
.
Pair it with Zinc, Elderberry, Echinacea, & good ol' Vitamin C for extra immune support. If you're not sensitive to nightshades, Ashwagandha is a great adaptogen!

Thanks for a great all-around medicinal that continues to amaze, @revolution.cannabis & @drinkspringlake

How do you use flower to stay medicated? What's your daily routine like? โœจ
.
There is the soothing, familiar ritual. The incredible variety of strains from which to choose. The purity of flavor in clean glass. And perhaps most notable for new patients, flower gives you the ability to learn about cannabis & gain familiarity with this sacred plant medicine with your own two hands. There is little more intimate in the realm of medical cannabis than using flower itself. ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ’จ

Betty's Eddies fruit chews by @gticlinicil come in a 5-pack of 20 mg saltwater taffy-like medibles in a variety of flavors (lemon, orange, cherry, lime, & grape). ๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ๐Ÿ‡ They're a more natural product being non-GMO, gluten free, & preservative free with natural dyes. They are also lactose-free & #vegan. This sets @bettyeddies apart from other medibles on the market. ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŒฟ๐Ÿฌ
.
Be warned that these have a strong cannabis taste, so if that's not your jam, you may want to move along. Lemon is my absolute favorite flavor of the bunch! Tart & sweet & lovely. โšก๏ธ๐Ÿ‹
.
As noted above, each medible contains 20 mg of THC. This is a pretty standard edible dose, but please adjust up or down to suit your personal tolerance & needs. If you are a newbie, please please do not take a whole piece at once. Low & slow!
.
For me, Betty's Eddies take about 90 minutes to hit, and the pleasant high rolls in with relaxation, a worry-free mindset, & body effects galore. My chronic pain dissipated very quickly. (Activation time & duration may vary based on body composition, metabolism, & tolerance.)
.
I am in love with the intensity of the body high Betty's Eddies gave me. It was so nice to have complete pain relief while it lasted. For reasons I don't completely understand, my pain surged & the pain relief went out the window just under an hour after it began.
.
However, the lifted euphoria continued onward with a social, upbeat, talkative, philosophical, creative problem-solving bent. โšก๏ธ๐Ÿ’ก Be ready for couchlock & appetite stimulation if you dose high enough. ๐Ÿ›‹๏ธ๐ŸŒฎ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿช
.
Ingredients: Sugar, glucose syrup, cannabis infused organic coconut oil, trimoline, natural flavor, citric acid, freeze dried spinach, ascorbic acid, pumpkin powder, blueberries, freeze dried carrot, dehydrated organic freeze dried strawberries
.
Betty's Eddies seem better for stress & anxiety relief, or lifting a dark mood, than straight up relief of stubborn severe pain. If you've had a different experience, we'd love to hear it. Please share in the comments! ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ‘‡
