Lets get together and help foster kids feel alright

Did you know that there are nearly 20,000 foster children living in the Northwest? We can help them. Last canpaign we were able to donate 4 pairs of brand new shoes for the shoe drive. That helped 4 kids. This time I hope that together we can help so many more!  

Being a child going into the foster care system must be a difficult transition. Add to that a new school and it can be a scary time. Let's  work together to give these kids the tools they need to start school right and be successful learners!  

From now until September 7, 2015, THChristi's is accepting donations of new backpacks and school supplies.  Drop off your donations on Sundays at Patient Cannabis Exchange Market at the THChristi booth. If you can't make it to the market, you can still help by visiting my campaign page to give a monetary donation here

Hash oil, whole plant and solventless. . The scoop on THChristi medicines

I've been fielding quite a few questions lately as to why I don't  just make my medicines  with hash oil like "everyone else does". 

Listen guys, I'm not opposed to hash oil medibles at all. There's a lot of great medibles to be found that are made with  hash oil.  I just believe in my proccess and my patients are the proof!  

I decided early on that i wanted to utilize whole plant medicine to get an entourage effect of all the cannabinoids working together for symptom control and relief.  

And as far as utilizing solventless hash rather than hash oil in my medibles I just want to give you all that natural option.   No chemicals were used to make the dry sift and bubble/water hash that I am using to make medibles like my kief jerky, lemon bars, extra strength gummys, nut butters and more. Not everyone is concerned with this but for those patients who are its a godsend to have access to meds that weren't chemically extracted. 

Now don't get me wrong here. I am not opposed to hash oil personally. I use dabs for pain and I take hash oil Shattercaps myself. And from time to time I do offer hash oil medibles at the request of my patients. 

So when it all comes down to brass tacks, its really just about choices and offering options for patients. I do things differently because variety is life's spice. If we all did everything the same there would be no options. 

I hope this helps to clarify not only what makes THChristi's different but also why we arent confined to "the box" when it comes to making medicines. 

Stay positive my friends!  Remwmber a mind is like a parachute and works best when it's open!

Cannabalm with Emu Oil by THChristi

I made this recipe about a month and a half ago and offered it for my patients then. The positive feedback has been so overwhelming!  Patients are finding relief from everything from psoriasis to broken ankle pain with this formulation. Cannabis never fails to amaze me with its healing   potential!  The addition of the Emu oil adds to the healing benefit and absorption. Amazing!

You are going to be shocked at how easy this balm is to make!

Simply melt together 1 ounce of Emu oil, 1 ounce of beeswax and 4 ounces of cannabis coconut oil in a large heavy pot. When all your ingredients have melted together give a good stirring and pour the hot liquid into a clean jar or tin. 

Leave uncovered until your balm hardens up. 

Once the balm has cooled to a hardened consistancy cover with the lid. 

Thats It!  Like I said this is so easy but so effective!

I've intentionally left this unscented. If you wanted a scented version you could easily add some essential oil in the liquid phase. Just a couple drops would be sufficient.

Get active!

Yes. It's true. We are still fighting for medical cannabis. When our state legalized recreational marijuana they began to see us as customers bit patients. They blame us for the failure to launch on recreational marijuana even though it's obvious the real problem is the lack of these recreational stores that they've allowed to open over the last year and the mass amount of producer/processors of recreational marijuana. How do they expect to move that legal weed without opening all the retail stores they were supposed to supply

On Wednesday night I attended a hearing at the state capital. One of those legal producer processors testified that his company alone was holding 45,000 pounds of legal marijuana with no place to sell it. That's one producer. It's ridiculous. They licenses all these growers but only opened a handful of retail locations. 

Now they want to place the blame on cannabis patients who, btw have been protected in Washington since 1998

So what's my point?  I guess my point is just that I never intended to be an activist. I didn't think I needed to fight for something that already exists ( medical cannabis ). 

Last year I fought for myself. I've been a patient for 4 or 5 years now. I use cannabis medicine daily to treat and stop my symptoms from fibromyalgia.  

This year I'm working with more patients than before. This year I see patients every week who would needlessly suffer if our access is reduced. This year I fight for not only myself but for these patients. 

To me the title of "activist" simply means one who is actively working toward a goal. Please join me in being active. If you don't feel compelled to do it for yourself, do it for other patients. You don't have to commit a lot of time or money. Just a few minutes to make a phone call or write an email.  It's really that simple. It's really that important. Just tell them patients are not customers and medical cannabis needs to remain a  separate system from recreational.

Decarboxylation. Making active medibles

"My edibles don't kick and I put a lot of medicine in them. What went wrong?"  This is a question that comes my way time and again.

We put a lot of time money and effort into growing and harvesting and curing our meds but I've noticed some of us don't take the same care when making our medibles. It's one simple step that can change everything. 

From google:
  1. Decarboxylation is a chemical reaction that removes a carboxyl group and releases carbon dioxide (CO2). Usually,decarboxylation refers to a reaction of carboxylic acids, removing a carbon atom from a carbon chain.

    In the case of marijuana, decarboxylation will change THCA to THC and make the medicine activated for oral consumption. This important step will ensure that the medibles you make are fully potent when you eat them. Not to say there isn't medicinal value in THCA bit if your looking to get the THC benefits this little step will make sure of that. 

    There are different theories out there to get the best decarboxylation of your starting material. These are the times and temperatures I use. Based on my lab testing I'm hitting between 95-99% decarb using these. 

    For kief: spread on a cookie sheet or Pyrex dish in a 250 F degree oven for 35 minutes

    For bud and trim:  grind and spread on a cookie sheet or Pyrex dish in a 250F degree oven for 30-35 minutes

    Cool and store or use right away for cooking. And yes I actually prefer to decarboxylate my material and then make butter or oil from that. When making butter or oil it will decarboxylate to some degree in the process. But I've found that you create a more potent and active butter or oil by decarbing first. 

    I hope this helps you guys with your medible making. 

    Stay Lifted!
