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!

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!

The Panacea Profile -Terpene Isolate Based Pain Cream

After much testing, trial by fire, research and sharing my own terpene profile I made, I’ve decided to both name it and sell it with our CBD/CBG products as well as in conjunction with those products in isolate, broad-spectrum and full-spectrum mixtures.

  1. First off, the profile itself is to be used in a rub-in/massage-in cream to which I’ve named “The Panacea Profile”. Take whatever base pain relieving cream you use, for me it’s lidocaine and either Arnica Montana or Aspercreme with Lidocaine 2%, and mix in the following terpene isolates of about 2mg each. Make sure you either have a scale or measuring capability down to those small levels. Since I don’t use cannabis terpene isolates, you can save extra money by buying botanical terpene isolates from, believe it or not, Amazon. I like Fogg and Elevation brand botanical isolates with Fogg being less expensive but just as good per testing. Buy the following terpene isolates: Myrcene, Beta-caryophollene, Limonene, Linalool, Humulene, Ocilene, Pinene, Eucalyptol, Camphene, Gamma-Terpinene and Terpinolene. Mind you, the most powerful pain relieving terpene isolate in this group and known to man so far is Myrcene so when I tell you to add 2mg to each mixture, add more to your liking. By now you should have 22-24mg of terpene isolates mixed together in an empty bottle.
  2. Start with your Arnica Montana or Aspercreme with Lidocaine, add it to your bottle with your mixture of 22-24mg of terpene isolates or more if you added slightly more Myrcene to the mix. The minimum sized bottle I would buy of Aspercreme and Lidocaine is 2.7oz so buy empty 3oz bottles on Amazon or at any local fragrance or makeup store. Now, once about 2oz of Arnica or Aspercreme is added, you will have left over room. Add at least 3/4 to 1 whole bottle of 1500mg CBD:CBG to the mixture and shake vigorously. This is your base formula for pain relief and pain control. Each application of between a quarter and a half dollar size should last about 3-5 hours so apply mixture 4-6 times a day, just at night, when you wake up if you are stiff after sleep, after working out, etc. Massage deep into the location like a trigger point massage or deep tissue massage.

So far making my own mixture through research this way has been the most effective; and I struggle from debilitating pain that narcotics usually don’t fully help. This will help with fibromyalgia, cervical spine issues, Occipital Neuralgia, neurapathies, carpal tunnel, back problems, sciatic nerve pain, joint issues such as elbow and knee pain and so on. After previously sharing this privately with my testers, they have all found it to be incredibly helpful and rather inexpensive. The combination of terpene isolates and cream was about the cost of a small 30ml bottle of 2000mg full spectrum CBD oil with infused terpenes made by say Charlotte’s Web or Green Roads.

The only reason I have added CBD and CBG is for their anti-inflammatory properties. In this the case where you are relying more on the terpene isolates and their pain relieving qualities it’s not as necessary but I would still add them so you rely on less liver toxic anti- inflammatories such as Advil or prescription anti-inflammatory medications.

If you have any questions, just shoot me an email at steve@r2steve2.com and if you decide to market a product with these ingredients in these proportions and quantities, just give me some credit. I don’t expect royalties but credit will do.

Cheers.

Explanation of Recent Website Problems and Improvements.

If you remember a while ago, we had a fund raiser to move the equipment we are hosted on to another data center as our hosting provider’s contract was up.

Since then, they experienced many equipment failures on ailing equipment and the owner of that company had recently bought all new state of the art equipment to host elsewhere.

Since putting the equipment into their new location, we copied everything over and migrated DNS. Everything worked without a hitch until the owner said that he was getting out of the VPS game so once again, we had to find a new place to go.

Now we’re with Digital Ocean, a great hosting offering many features including free firewalls which we make use of, on site and off site weekly backups and bi-coast load balancing. This means that now with a much higher load each minute due to way more visitors, the load is shared between two locations depending on where in the world you are coming from.

With the amount of bandwidth we have now, hosting specifications, firewalls, load balancing and DDoS protection, we are a more solid website looking to finally expand our footprint and enable our ecommerce site soon. It keeps getting delayed by the sheer amount of products out there and the gradual lowering of prices we see daily.
