Cannabis Chef-Cindy Ruggiero

This was a very educational podcast. Canna-Chef Cindy came by The House to educate me on decarboxylating my cannabis and turning it into oil or a butter. Decarboxylating is a method in which you transform compounds called cannabinoid acids into a form that is readily usable by the body via heat. In this case Cindy brought over a few grams, placed them in a mason jar covered with tin foil and placed upsidedown on a baking sheet for an hr at 190. The result was very tasty, but I like the taste of cannabis. So to help people enjoy edibles, Chef Cindy teaches them how to be culinary scietists at home with cannabis. She will be at the New Hampshire Cannabis Festival Aug 25th . For more info please see below.

#CannabisIsMedicineTestimonies 10-Alex AKA Doc.Rockso_ Stage 4 Crohn’s Disease

I had a great time with Alex. I learned somethng new from him. He also has lung cancer. Alex was diagnosed with Crohn's Disease when he was in the late Stage 3. The pills were not helping. Cannabis concentrates are now allowing him to live a somewhat "normal" life. This is Alex's testimony 

Crohn’s disease is a chronic inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) characterized by inflammation of the digestive, or gastrointestinal (GI) tract. In fact, Crohn’s can affect any part of the GI tract, from the mouth to the anus, but it is more commonly found at the end of the small intestine (the ileum) where it joins the beginning of the large intestine (or colon). It can also affect: Eyes, Skin and Joints. 

  • About 67% of people in remission will have at least 1 relapse over the next 5 years
  • 700,000 people in the United States are affected by Crohn's

#CannabisIsMedicineTestimonies 9-Dani Geen of Harborside Health Center-

A message from Executive Director of Harborside Health Center-Steve DeAngelo

 

As medical cannabis patients, we have all had to endure the fear and stigma imposed upon us by nearly seventy years of cannabis prohibition. Despite the recent legalization of medical cannabis in California and other states, the fear and stigma persist. Harborside Health Center is dedicated to healing the pain that stems from these destructive attitudes and feelings by providing a sensible alternative to the hysteria surrounding cannabis and by honoring you as a progressive and courageous force of change. We believe one way we may do that is to be conscious and respectful in all our interactions with our neighbors.

Harborside Health Center believes each patient acts as an ambassador for the entire medical cannabis community. We want our fellow patients to feel cared for, to be recognized as important members of society, and to leave our facility inspired to be positive ambassadors for medical cannabis. Society is watching all of us to determine if medical cannabis is safe and sensible. If we dedicate ourselves to being such positive ambassadors for medical cannabis, our communities will begin to embrace us instead of being suspicious of us. The perception of medical cannabis will then be transformed, and the stigma associated with it will be eliminated.

Harborside Health Center sees this as the key for achieving safe and legal access to medical cannabis for all suffering and sick Americans. We invite you to join us in building a kinder and more compassionate world, and thank you for your efforts.

Women Grow Philadelphia Chapter presents-Dabbing for Wellness w/ Dani Geen

A longtime activist and patient, Dani Geen is an expert in cannabis concentrates and the healthful aspects of ‘dabbing.’ As a member of the executive team at Harborside Health Center, Dani is privy to the latest products and methods of consumption on the market, and to the evolving science of cannabis medicines. Now ready to share what she’s learned, Dani hopes to remove the stigma of dabbing, and educate other patients and adult-use consumers on its many benefits compared to other methods of consumption.

Because her parents were patients, Dani became familiar with cannabis as a medicine at an early age. In high school she began having severe pain issues and subsequently started studying the plant more seriously. In 2006 she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia while attending college for artist management and music tech studies. Lacking medical insurance and not wanting to rely on opiates, Dani turned to cannabis for relief, eventually discovering the powerful efficacy of extracts.

In 2008, Dani began working at Harborside Health Center—the nation’s largest model cannabis dispensary, based in California—while finishing school. After a short time in Harborside’s Ombuds department welcoming and orienting patients, she was quickly recruited to the executive management team alongside executive director and co-founder, Steve DeAngelo.

While traveling across the country with Steve, Dani was introduced to a titanium nail and Healthstone pipe. She discovered that the higher cannabinoid profiles of the concentrates used by this method gave her the edge she needed to combat her fibromyalgia and to quit smoking cigarettes. She’s now been pharmaceutical-free (and a non-smoker) for nearly six years.

Dani is currently exploring the benefits of torch-less e-nails, and concentrates with and without terpenes, preferring live resins, ‘terp juice’ and solvent-less ‘rosin’ or hash oil to flowers. She’s also a knowledgeable and gentle guide for novice dabbers. “Start small and work your way up,” she says. “Make sure you stay hydrated and are in a comfortable area for your first time.” She can be reached at danig@harborsidehealthcenter.com.

Rob and Frank owner/operators-Liberty International CBD infused products-

What a great walkabout with Frank and Rob from Liberty International CBD. Enjoying the sounds of the city life in Philadelphia, we take a stroll to the new renovated piers on the Delaware. Enjoy this great discussion on how CBD can change our life. 

 

It takes a certain sense of courage to go against the grain, especially when the grain is traditional Western medicine. While alternative medicine and holistic practices are becoming more accepted, it can be a difficult and confusing experience for patients

The body is an entire system and should be treated as such. Understanding homeostasis and how far we have come from it is an important issue. Understanding the Endocannbinoid system is the key to unlocking your bodies true potential. Utilizing your bodies natural defenses and a plant based supplement we at Liberty International want you to have access to the things you need. We have a product lined focused on the patient, with multiple applications and delivery systems.
