Sharing is caring

In the last few years I have been on a journey with this blog and my place in the cannabis community. I started helping patients like myself 5 or 6 years ago when I began creating my own medicated edibles and topicals. When I started this there was very few cannabis recipes available online so I began creating my own. After awhile I realized that old expression "be the change you want to see in the world" was calling to me. I answered the call by starting this blog and my facebook page so I could share some of my recipes and accumulated knowledge regarding cooking with cannabis. I felt, and still do, that I was doing something positive. I wanted to help other patients like me, who wanted some options to make their own medibles.

Since the very beginning I have taken a lot of criticism. I got messages from medical cannabis providers telling me that I shouldn't be sharing my recipes because it would take away their business. I had others tell me I shouldn't share my recipes because I should keep them secret and corner a market. I had others still claiming that they had cornered a market on a particular medible and my recipe (not theirs) was somehow infringing on their business. To these folks I always have responded with my view of the bigger picture. There are more patients than any one provider could possibly cover and many patients are in other states and countries. With over 300,000 page views from all over the world I have been able to reach and help so many folks who I have never met by sharing information and shared knowledge elevates us all.

Along with these criticisms I have also been fortunate to be recognized for my work. I have seen my work featured in a local cannabis publication, received an online award for best edible recipes and even been recognized as one of many Women of Weed in an international magazine.

I have fought for patient rights at my state capital. I have participated in cannabis miracles where patient have healed cancers in their own bodies with cannabis medicine. And sadly I've also mourned the losses of friends who were unable to recover. In the last year or more I've been fortunate to help many more patients by providing medibles and topicals to them directly through a cannabis farmers market and indirectly through different access points that have carried THChristi's products.

I want you, dear reader, to understand that I fight and work and create and share and gift cannabis medicine and recipes and knowledge out of a true passion and calling to do so.

I am a real person, a sensetive and generous human being with a true desire to help others. So please, before you attack my character or question my motivation to help, take a moment to consider these things. If after  that consideration you still feel the need to call me out, by all means, do so. I will do my best to respond with compassion and understanding.

Why I advocate for cannabis medicine

To be perfectly honest it's all about me. Or at least it started out that way. My fibromyalgia had me in such severe pain I really didnt know if i could go on some days. The medicines I got from my doctor helped but the side effects made my life zombie like. Getting from 1 nap to the next took all of my energy. In stepped cannabis edibles and my life was forever changed for the better.

Now here we are some years later and I have had the great pleasure of helping other patients find relief and healing through cannabis medicine. I have seen cannabis cure lymphoma in my friend and amaze his family and doctors. I have watched a patient stop her painful spasms in seconds by simply using a dropperful of whole plant tincture. I've seen children with 100s of seizures a day get down to a few seizures a month by using cannabis medicine. The list goes on and on.

So these are the reasons I will continue to advocate as long as I am breathing. We should all have the option of accessing this natural plant medicine.
