Edibles are the best method of medicating

Although my illness is not a serious one.  I deal with pain, and other conditions in my daily life.

For a long time, I have smoked cannibas in order to alleviate pain from an injury when in the military back in the 1970’s.

In the 7 months, I have done a switch from smoking as a regiment, to switching to oil and edibles.  It was strange, but intriguing.  After switching to ingesting by mouth medication, my life has been changing.

I’ve read studies where patients who were on a regiment showed weight loss, while still maintaining a reasonable caloric intake.  A year ago, I was 220lbs.  I am now 175lbs.  I eat normal, yet I keep the weight off, and I feel younger in energy levels.  Now I’m no research specialist, but my overall health has improved, and I feel somewhat younger in stamina.

I agree with others, that edibles aren’t for everyone.  But for regular regimental users of cannabis, it’s a nice alternative.  I find by taking a 4 dose (100mg) sativa edible in the morning, I maintain pain relief for close to the whole day.  I then take a 4 dose (100mg) edible after dinner, and it continues to maintain the relief.  Since I don’t like to overdo it, I deal with the short period late in the day that I don’t have full relief for my pain, but then again I only have to maintain a 200mg dose per day.

When I’m having trouble with sleep, I smoke a single hit of Indica an hour before bed, and take 25mg- 50mg of capsules (2) right at bedtime.  My results were that I slept soundly, and had a full nights sleep.  I didn’t feel all hungover or anything like that in the morning.  I was actually refreshed, because I hadn’t gotten the first decent nights sleep in a long time.

From what I’ve read in a lot of studies, ingesting cannabis by mouth has better overall health results than just smoking.  A lot of researchers aren’t 100% sure of why yet, but the studies seem to be bring further positive results of cannabis oil in capsules, and other edible forms of desserts, etc.

I think it’s important to note though, that if your truly using cannabis as a medication for a specific disorder, that you get the right strain that works for your disorder.  Just buying anything without the right knowledge isn’t going to give you the accuracy to best remedy your particular situation.

There are some good guides (google them) Strain guides, that point you to what strains are good for particular illness.

I can summarize in saying that edibles have changed my whole way of life, and application of my personal medicinal program.


Sweet Releaf Cannedibles – Products for those who prefer to medicate with edibles

As part of the beginning of the medicinal marijuana movement in California, I am pleased to be able to provide medicinal cannabis edibles to patients through caregiver services.

Unlike most of the generic edibles on the market, at Sweet Releaf, we are developing products that are not only effective and safe, but delicious in texture, and flavors.

In the past 6 months, I have been working together with fellow patients experimenting to find some of the best combinations for creating edibles for patients.

Several products were created and sampled by fellow patients, and I was extremely happy with the overall results of our trials.  Daily I am still thinking of different ways of bringing edibles to caregivers that stand out from the normal group of generic types of edibles.

With more and more dispensaries under fire, the need for delivery service is seen to be more in demand as governmental agencies continue to infringe on safe and fair access to medicine.  Delivery service has been shown to be a good alternative to the continued harassment being given to caregiver collectives, and dispensaries overall in California after the California Supreme Court ruling on County and local City rights to refusal of access.

As a foresight, we are able to provide our line of edibles to caregivers as a method of providing access while local government continues to try to prevent it.  Since it’s legal to provide caregiver services to qualified patients, it’s a welcoming option for patients who don’t want to travel long distances to get their medicine.

We also know of reputable dispensaries that provide discrete delivery services that provide additional medicinal choices outside our product line for flowers, oil, and other medicinals.  As this site grows, additional information will be provided as to resources to ensure fair and reasonable access to medicine for California patients residing in the greater San Jose/Santa Clara County areas through delivery service.

We urge those in government, to take a realistic look at the overall picture of the real benefit of dispensaries in their city, and the real results in care given by them to patients who suffer.
