Part of the ME/CFS week of action and awareness building – will be posting more on the fact that 600,000 Canadians live with this illness and the impact it has on our lives. With no training for Doctors and Nurses, $0 research funding for causes or cures, let alone treatment protocols from Health Canada, or even at local level, we are just some of the #MillionsMissing with ME/CFS.
Glorious day at one of the most beautiful places in the world.
It was the first time I’ve been able to walk to the Spit and back in a couple of years. A nice picnic and got my toes wet too, paddling.
Lots to be grateful for. ❤️
You may or may not know, but I use medical marijuana as one of my main medications. And I use it daily, in a variety of forms, from pure CBD, (one of the more powerful cannabinoids for pain seizures and sleep but with no psychotropic properties so won’t get you ‘stoned’), to full spectrum oil, vapes, to edibles, topicals and sometimes I even smoke it! (for appetite stimulation, and breakthrough pain).
It’s my primary medicine, along with a couple of pharma meds, and has the biggest effect on the most symptoms, managing my severe pain, seizures, nausea, migraine and insomnia more effectively than anything else.
Trouble is, it was hard to find good quality, medicinal-grade marijuana at the best of times but even more so now recreational marijuana use has been legalized in Canada.
While I’m thrilled that Canada has made this powerful medicine, and relaxant available to everyone of legal age; it has undoubtedly made it much harder for medicinal users to access clean, medicinal-grade, affordable, cannabis because there are SO many more people buying.
Despite the fact there are literally dozens of new online stores, opening to to fill the gap created by the lack of physical stores. It’s still hard to get premium quality because like everything, not all of these online stores are created equally. Indeed, many of them have nefarious connections, and don’t offer the high quality, medicinal-grade cannabis that sick people REALLY need.
I was using one particular company for the last 18 months before legalization because I found that their productd were consistently of high-quality. However since legalization, the inventory and quality dropped, the prices have gone up, and the quality of service has gone down.
So, that left me hunting for a new supplier. I tried a couple of companies, but found many of the products were not as described on their websites. Often Cannabis oils are processed using solvents and petrochemicals like ethanol, butane or propane, none of which are desirable for medicinal use.
Anyways, after several months and several disappointments, I am thrilled to have finally found a supplier that I can trust, and recommend to other people…
The Supreme Collective website carries the cleanest, purest, medicinal cannabis products I have found online anywhere! They work with cannabis ‘Artists’ – People at the very top of their game,; producing exquisite cannabis and CBD oils, edibles, concentrates, tinctures, and topicals; as well as premium grade flowers and hash. But it’s not just the quality of the products that sets this company apart; it’s their ethos, and a true passion for compassion, with a dedication to providing the highest quality products, with the best possible support that sets them apart..
Supreme Collective made it so easy for me to find the right products, and offered meaningful advice, with specific recommendations for products to help ease some of my most problematic symptoms, like my seizures and dysautonomia. They even gave me a some products to sample, and the shipping was fast.
One of the things that most impressed me is that Supreme Collective really recognize the responsibility they have to educate, inform, and support cannabis users to make the right choices; ensuring novice and experienced folk alike, understand how to safely experience this beautiful, powerful plant.
So, if you are looking to purchase premium, medicinal-grade, cannabis products in Canada; please do yourselves a favour and check out these guys. You will be well taken care of, and get the very best service, and products on the market, bar none.
I personally recommend the following from Supreme Collective as they helped my severe pain, neurological symptoms, myalgia, migraines, and insomnia, and for medicating without smoking, which is obviously the healthiest way to achieve medicinal effects from this wonderful plant:
Today was gorgeous! Willow and I took a slow afternoon stroll to the beach at Studies Bay, went for a paddle, and got our toes wet. It was too irresistible not to!
Here’s one of my favourite pics of my little home, taken just a few days ago after the second big snow storm, of three, in a week.
It makes it look so cosy and I love the contrast with the white of the snow against the rusted patina and teal roof.
Thankfully, it’s easy to keep a home this size warm with my Cubic mini stove, plus the southerly exposure means even 20 minutes of winter sun warms the place nicely.
Propane tanks and regulators keep freezing so the hot water has been very sparse, but otherwise it’s been rather lovely
Beach pics! And this is why I live here, although it was actually the first beach trip this year, and heavenly, even if I’m payjng for it now.
Lots to be grateful for….
