The Purpose of this Site

This site is to serve as an informational corner of the internet for all things spoonie, technology, cats and the occasional poker game. My idea is that we all share what we’ve been through, how we deal with our issues, what tools and alternate medicines are out there and what options there are for people.

I have been a spoonie for a long time and it’s part of my culture. As an advocate for spoonies I share and spread knowledge that I’ve learned myself as well as things I’ve learned from other spoonies about their spoonieisms and amazing abilities.

Currently I work in healthcare IT as the director of network operations for a large hospital system where I live. I write “abilities” above because we’ve all heard about each others’ disabilities or disabling chronic illnesses whereas I refer to them as abilities because we can handle things people without chronic illnesses can’t. For example, those of us with migraine, auto-immune diseases, traumatic illnesses and/or mental illnesses have learned to incorporate such things into our lives in ways that others would just give up on. We do things others would dare not do or wouldn’t be able to do if they had something simple like the flu and yes to us, the flu is simple as it goes away. A spoonie has something that will not go away. Not ever. We are the unchargeables, we are the spoonies!

So come on down, look around, participate, it might be fun!

Great Site: Http://CBDHemp.direct

In our everlasting journey to find the best, this far, CBG products, especially flower, I was checking out my emails through the day and got a normal email update from a site I frequent as gifts for others: http://cbdhemp.direct. as they are having a huge BOGO sale right now I figured I’d go check it out and see if there are any new flowers with nice Terpene profiles, CBG flowers, etc. What I found was heavenly!

I found a CBG strain offered in “smalls” which means the plant produces small buds and offering ounces at ridiculously low prices is a great way to begin it’s journey through the market until the demand for CBG is realized, then they can sell it for 3-5x the current price.

The current strain is called Farmer’s Batch. This current batch of flowers all tested ridiculously high in their COA. We’re talking 21.8% CBG/CBGA with less than .2% ∆9-THC and 4% mix of other Cannabinoids. This is the highest I know if in the non marijuana market and to be honest, I’ve never seen percentages that high in medicinal marijuana. So for an ounce of basically shake, very small buds but no seeds, trim or stems, it can to 40 dollars for 2 ounces and then 7 dollars for USPS priority shipping.

The terpene profile had A LOT of the Terpenes we use in the Panacea profile; in other words the Terpenes that do the best jobs at lowering and numbing out inflammation.

I’d love too hear from those of you who dove in and tried it for all those wonderful benefits of CBG.

Best CBG Flower We’ve Tried

In my ever so long search up until recently, the 3 of us kept searching all over the web buying and trying different CBG strains of flower. Up until now.

One of our coupon sites showed a 30% off coupon for CBD or CBG flower found at this one site and usually, I must say, I stay away from the sales because half of it looks like College-grade schwag prized by 18 year olds all over Canada and the USA. But one of my favorite words was in the store name for this coupon: Shaman.

This site touted 2 strains of CBG flowers, each in .2g small glass pancake jars, vacuum sealed. One strain is called Lemon Cream and has 15.28% CBG. Now during this post surgery inflammatory stage I’m in currently, I wanted to rely on plant over pill for relief. One of our guys got .6g total and I was able to get .2g for my testing and comparison with the other guys.

My current flare up is due to a compression injury. Basically I leaned back in a chair and the amount of lean wasn’t as much as I thought so I ended up hitting the head and the chair basically squeezed my neck with the weight of the head coming down and for those with injuries like mine, terrible discs especially, compression is so incredibly painful for a LONG time.

So after about 3 weeks of struggling, I smoked one bowl to my head which was only three hits worth in my little spoon. Soon, a minute later, I forgot about my neck. Not only did I forget about it but the accompanying borderline migraine was gone. That’s not happened to me yet even with 20%+ CBD so 15% CBG from a good place, especially if you do your due diligence and find out where the store front gets it from, is all you need since CBG > CBD.

Now if you want more CBG, the same site has a .2g strain called John Snow and had a CBG concentration of 20.78% and since I don’t roast anymore, I actually had to sit down from that one.

Both these get 3 stars total, a star from everyone. Both were nice and sticky, hit the nose with a great aroma and you can taste a lemony-nutty in both of them to give you an idea of the terpene profile.

Conclusion: have bad inflammation? Looking for really good CBG? Looking for a pot-like hit? Get both of these? Great on migraine!!

COVID-19 Aka Coronavirus

As you are well aware of by now, the WHO has recently labeled the Coronavirus (Strain: COVID-19) a worldwide pandemic. What started as a bunch of isolated groups of people in and around Wuhan, China quickly escalated into worldwide status for two reasons. 1. The easy access and ability to get on a plane and travel anywhere and 2. The fact that people, while feeling fine, were traveling while the virus was incubating inside them.

Coronavirus is the only human transferred virus we know of that is contagious in every form of it from reproduction to incubation and every other form it takes on inside the body.

Now there are three groups of people who are susceptible to the virus: newborns, the elderly and the immunocompromised. For the rest of us, from 5 to 60, it’s a bad cold, a light flu, sometimes a long lasting light to medium flu but a flu consisting of deep cold symptoms, nothing in the gastrointestinal system.

What can you do to keep you and your house and family germ free? Don’t go to conventions. Don’t go where there are large groups of people. The government is now suggesting you stay away from crowds greater than 10 people. Look at who is sending their employees home to work for the next 2 months at minimum? Companies like Google, many administrative jobs at hospital systems that don’t include clinical jobs, etc. My father, the director of Infection Control for New York State, tells us that this is barely the beginning. The beginning of the beginning will peak in 45 days from now give or take a week. This means bluntly, don’t save shopping for food for day 43. Do your hoarding now. Lots of non perishable foods (for example, a nice easy meal that will last forever is a can of vegetarian beans by Heinz), flash frozen ramen, all the pasta you can get, canned vegetables, ketchup and tomato sauces, hot dogs, frozen meals and if you have a large freezer like I do and a vacuum sealer, as much meat as you normally eat but a months worth.

What should you buy to protect the household?

Regular air filtering 3M masks do squat. The virus is smaller then their mask filter. You need what’s called an N95 mask which availability is spotty due to shortage and the fact that hospital institutions get them first. No shaking hands or kissing. Practice what we’ve all heard about: social distancing. There is no need to hoard purell or travel just to try and find it. As long as you have soap, the moment you get home, practice this soap routine: wash with soap while singing Happy birthday twice to your self. Wash from fingers, cuticles all the way down to your elbows like you were a doctor scrubbing for surgery.

Use Lysol surface cleaners to disinfect the rest. Door knobs, toilet flushers, sinks, any place you can think of that requires sanitizing, etc.

Don’t take out food, go to fast food or large restaurants. Many of these places lack common sense especially with the “employees must wash hands after using facilities”. Fast food is too many people going past the same person to pay, touch the bags, food containers, condiments so he’s not only getting bombarded by the possibly sick, he’s passing it on to everyone times 100.

Every product on this site is still in air locked containers and will remain that way even in their shipping containers so we will not have any hand on the actual inner products, that’s for you to rip open and enjoy safely. We’ve also setup an area of our office that is sealed with negative pressure and a vent system pulling air up and directly out the one story area we ship from. For custom terpene solutions you ask for, they are also put together in this tent with me and the other 2 partners wearing N95 masks, surgical grade latex free gloves and pre sterilized bottles and measuring cups and devices like scales. So we’re completely ready for this to get worse and more than ready for current conditions.

Be smart, be proactive, listen to scientific people like Dr Gupta, not Trump or anyone in his administration. He is scientifically a moron and denies science fact.

New Reviews To Come

From the holiday season to now, we’ve gotten a lot of samples to try and review between 3 of us. A distribution of CBG flower at 15.1% to smoke, a hand device to self grind dry herb and vaporize it, multiple CBN products such as easy dissolve caplets, CBN distillate, a new high tech e-pen pre-loaded with high concentration CBD oil with the best taste I’ve had so far for a pen device as well as 2 boxes of 7 half gram hemp pre-rolls that are different than others. The effect of both their CBD and CBG versions are what you would expect excerpt you can walk around the corner of NYC without making everything smell of pot. They have 1/4 the aroma which makes you think that it’s only half real product. You get COAs with each box and the CBD is Kush and the CBG is their own breed of CBG.

I think for me, as someone who suffers heavily from insane pain and terrible insomnia and the CBG products are amazing for pain and inflammation, the CBN is awesome for insomnia. Once these rounds of products are finished, out come the reviews!

Stay tuned!
