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!

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.

Herbal Pharm Rx and Tweedle Farms Sample Products

Recently, we were sent a bunch of samples from Herbal Pharm Rx and Tweedle Farms. A myriad of CBD isolate, flower, CBG and other rubs, ointments, edibles, buds, doggie treats, pre-rolls, wax and combination tinctures besides CBG isolate and CBN oil.

I had started to review each Tweedle Farms product but decided to put them all in this posting.

Every flower based product received from Tweedle Farms came in above what we are used to getting locally. The pre-rolls were all superb in strains such as Lifter, Suver Haze, Elektra and a 1 gram wax/shatter that only added to the strength of cone or the smokeable you choose to use it with. Every product was above 18% CBD concentration with rich terpene profiles and a great number of Cannabinoids for all their given purposes. If you want a great site for raw flower in any size in many strains with full information about each strain, this is a great site for you. The wax is an almost given purchase with any flower or even in its own. All lab reports are right there on the website as they are very transparent and don’t hide anything from current or new customers.

The CBG:CBD tincture was great since it was only a 15ml tester it didn’t last too long for me but was excellent in numerous ways. I had excellent sleep falling into deep sleep for more than 3 hours a night which I normally don’t do for more than 30 minutes a night. In addition to the amount of sleep, my generalized anxiety was way lower when stressed out at work and my pain level was incredibly manageable with NO painsomnia in its combination of 20:1 CBD to CBG of 250mg CBD only and I require way more CBD than that normally so the blend of CBG was indeed perfect which goes to show you that you do not require much CBD when there is CBG mixed in the tincture in a 10 or 20:1 combination where 20:1 is most common. So to make it last, after I used up the 250mg 15ml tincture, I bought the 30ml 1000mg CBD:CBG tincture and it’s lasted well over 2 months so far and again, I’m in deep sleep far more than I’m used to with all the extra added benefits of high concentration full spectrum CBD oil.

Now with Herbal Pharm Rx, we received many a product to test and possibly carry in the future. In no particular order, we received 2 unnamed 1 gram pre-rolls in nice sturdy wrapping to both keep them fresh and protected from bends or kinks, 1 1000mg CBD freeze balm good for deep massage without getting all over your hands and not coming off. If you place it on sinus cavity exit points and trigger point and rub it in, it helps with sinus headaches, Occipital Neuralgia related headaches and any other things you can think would benefit from a CBD pain-relieving freeze balm. Then we got a 2000mg CBD roll-on with menthol it feels like and is excellent for topical application for muscle joint and nerve pain with a higher CBD concentration than the balm. It’s a large 3oz bottle with a roll on applicator. It says to use up to 6 times a day, I think 4-5 is enough for me which means 4 for the average person without a chronic pain issue. The next product is a 5000mg CBD isolate tincture in Lemon in MCT oil that is great for everything and at 5000mg, 30ml will last you forever. That’s 166.6mg per dose (per ml basically) so each dose is between 100 and 150mg as you never get a full pull on the tincture. The next product is a 30 pill 300mg CBD bottle labeled Sleep where each pill is 10mg with added 3mg of melatonin. Now you know I’m not a fan of supplementing melatonin because the more you supplement the less your body makes naturally but during winter months, having the extra 3mg is beneficial as there is far less sunlight to help your body synthesize vitamin D into melatonin. Personally I take 2 tablets during the winter months for that added benefit. The next product were all natural doggie treats that are 10mg each that you can eat if you wanted as there are no surprise ingredients in them. I don’t have a dog so I have them to my cousin who has a dog and he said that their dog has been calmer and more relaxed and less rambunctious but they usually give him 2 at a time. To me I think it’s better to take a doggie treat versus oil because it’s hard to get a dog to keep it under their tongue for extended periods so it fully works… The last product is an Awake formula that is 30 pills, 25mg CBD per pill and 200mg caffeine per pill as well. As someone with afib, 200mg is just too much for me so I’m giving this bottle to one of my coffee loving work mates and have them review them for me. The person I have in mind loves their coffee do much that they would probably open up the capsule and mix it into a large cup of already strong coffee. So if you are waiting for a review of that, I’ll have it soon. And the last product is both a novelty and good for tea: CBD honey sticks. Each pack is 10 10mg CBD honey sticks and they are very sweet, organic and make any tea that much better with just the perfect amount of CBD.

I am awaiting a package of CBN from another company so stick around as I’ll have that soon with an accompanied review soon after.

Be well.
