I walked into Nature’s Treatment of Illinois yesterday and wept.
The Milan, Ill.-based medical marijuana dispensary is where I am able to obtain the finest cannabis in the United States. That absolutely is the truth, as legal cannabis patients in my state can get weed in any form, with limitless THC and CBD content.
The cannabis is grown under the strictest regulations in the country (probably the world) and is clean, clean, clean. People support me in my medical cannabis needs because I have shown the amazing effects it can have on people who truly need it.
“Why is this happening to me?” I asked Tammy, as I broke down for a consult and wept. And I weep now as I write it, because when I try to answer the question, it leads to one thing: Fright. Anger. Fear.
A WAY overactive amygdala.
Tammy, a new employee, put her hand on my shoulder. She simply said that sometimes being brave is lonely, or something to that effect (I don’t want to misquote her).
We talked a bit about how much money I had and what symptoms I have been having and I just let her call the shots. That’s what I have been doing the past two weeks just about every time I go.
The MediCannabis consultants at NTI know what they’re doing.
Bruce Banner No. 3: Did someone just screw a new head on my shoulders?
“I think it’s called Bruce Banner because it takes the hulk out of you.”
That’s what Tammy said as she highly recommended Bruce Banner No. 3 for my explosive anger. I admittedly told her I smashed a dish in my driveway in a rage.
But then I cleaned it up. And I got the idea from my mother, who smashed an entire set of dishes in the exact same spot when she got her cancer diagnosis.
So I figured, what the hell.
FILTHY State Farm Insurance had changed their story yet again, telling me they no longer are giving me a penny for my shot-up house. That’s why I reduced the price: The home is now “AS IS.”
At any rate, this strain is a sativa. It’s highly unusual, at least based on legend, that a sativa (upper) strain would tame a beast. But it does.
“Effects come on quickly to provide an immediate burst of euphoria before easing into relaxation that may be good for creative pursuits. Dark Horse Genetics bred this strain from OG Kush and Strawberry Diesel, and its heritage can be found in its diesel aroma with sweet undertones.”
Reading this really excited me because I have emphasized repeatedly the IMMEDIATE effects. Think of it as Naloxone for people with PTSD. Incredible.
There is no Pharma drug that can achieve this incredible result, naturally. Indeed, most Pharma drugs cause further damage to people with PTSD.
Star Killer Live Sugar
Wow. I know. Funny name.
Star Killer is a medical marijuana strain known for its PTSD-related anxiety calming effects. Live Sugar denotes a concentrated form of the plant that is absolutely as fresh as a flower.
I “dab” it with a device called a nectar collector. There are other ways to dab, too.
Live Sugar is made by taking the plant, freezing it, and pressing it. The end product is this beautiful, bountiful “sugar,” or “terp sugar,” with “terp” denoting “terpenes.”
Just look at it.
How is my mental and physical health?
My mental health, when medicated with my legal medical cannabis, is hyper vigilant but sharp, and without hysteria or anger. Without medical cannabis, it’s bad.
My physical health is the best its ever been. I’m in great shape. I’m overflowing with testosterone and very frustrated.
There is no way in hell I would seek mental health treatment via behavioral health even if I were NOT afraid of the corrupt local behavior health systems. However, I say that after DECADES of cognitive behavioral already which has given me many, many tools for coping with my anxiety.
But for background, here is why I WILL NOT EVER seek MEDICAL TREATMENT where I live UNTIL I am convinced it is safe to do so or until I can afford private health care out-of-pocket or land another excellent plan off the exchange like I had previously.
That’s hard when nobody will hire you because you’re so talented you uncovered a story that never was supposed to be uncovered.
Donald Trump never was supposed to win the election either.
A nod to Rock Island Arsenal employees
Finally, a twist of hilarity and fun in a federal political corruption case served with legal medical cannabis on the side:
It’s all going down in a Congressional district that’s home to a federal military installation that’s one of the area’s largest employers. As you can imagine, many of them have PTSD. Many of them have cannabis cards.
They are my pals. They are the nicest people I have met so far at the dispensary … and EVERYONE is nice. They tell me about their cars being raided on the island, even though they are well aware they cannot bring their cannabis onto it.
I can tell you that when I first moved back here from Los Angeles, Cheri Bustos met me for drinks at my apartment on 60th Street Moline.
I announced my intention to spark up.
“I won’t be a party to that,” Bustos quipped.
“Let’s call Susie, she’ll come drink with us.” she added, referring to Susie Snyder, now Susie Gustafson, my dear friend and beautiful bride of Rock Island County Coroner Brian Gustafson.
Me and Sioux See had so much fun.
Until next time.
