Life As A Cannabis Patient

Life As A Cannabis Patient

Life in Oregon as a cannabis patient is typically non-eventful. Patients actually have amounts that work out well for those who wish to create their own medicines. I’m one such patient. I wrote about my healing with cannabis in my first book, Confessions of a Back Porch Herbalist in which I shared how I healed my severe […]

What More Needs To Happen?

What More Needs To Happen?

What more needs to happen for those who support Donald Trump to finally turn away from this travesty of a human being? I read a comment from him this morning that DACA is “probably dead” and of course, he’s blaming it all on the Democrats, sounding more like a petulant child than anything remotely presidential. […]

New Book! Hedgewitch of the Village!

New Book! Hedgewitch of the Village!

It started out as a witch’s book on herbal teas and then one day I wondered what it might look like as a novel. It was at that point that I began thinking about a new title and finally settled on Hedgewitch of the Village. Never having written a novel before, I thought about saving […]

Just Don't Start?

Just Don’t Start?

Here we go again. Donald, you’re channeling Nancy. Only now, instead of just say no, it’s just don’t start. Wow. That’s so easy. Donald, do you understand that a significant part of the opioid crisis involves prescriptions written by doctors? I’m certain that most doctors don’t want anyone to become addicted, but to ignore this aspect of the […]

Healing Rheumatoid Arthritis With Cannabis

Healing Rheumatoid Arthritis With Cannabis

I really shouldn’t read articles about Rheumatoid Arthritis anymore and I absolutely should NOT read any comments that might be posted. Even when my RA was severe, I could only handle so much time on forums because it was too depressing. Rheumatoid Arthritis sucks. When it took over and became severe, which it remained for […]

Insurance Coverage For Medical Cannabis

I read an article in the National Memo describing how judges are beginning to issue orders regarding insurance coverage for prescription medical cannabis. It’s interesting that the rest of the world moves on while the Federal Government digs its head further into the sand on this issue. The rollout of cannabis legalization in states like Oregon […]

Healing With Cannabis Is Worth The Risk

Healing With Cannabis Is Worth The Risk

It felt as if my body wasn’t my own. I had retained so much fluid that it felt as if I was sloshing about in boiling hot water. My thirteen-year nightmare with rheumatoid arthritis was surreal. It exploded into my life preventing any further training in Kenpo. Although my husband and I had closed our […]

As Garden Season Ends…

  The dome we put in was a complete success. The hugel beds which we also put in exceeded our expectations as everything we planted both inside and around the outside of the dome went crazy. I’ve frozen more beans than I did last year and even though it’s October and we’ve had some frost, […]

What’s In A Name?

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission is assigned the task of rolling out legal recreational cannabis in our state. Retail outlets were finally approved as of yesterday along with some rules regarding the naming of various cannabis strains. Girl Scout Cookies, Charlotte’s Web, Dr. Who, Candyland, Jedi Kush as well as others are apparently too enticing […]

Veterans Need Safe Access To Medical Cannabis

After all the work Rep. Blumenauer and Senator Merkley did to give veterans safe access to medical cannabis in the latest funding bill for the Veteran’s Administration, that section was stripped from the bill and when it finally passed Congress, it was still not in there. Instead of VA doctors being allowed to sign off […]
