What's New For Cannabis in Illinois?

There have been a lot of changes recently in Illinois when it comes to our beloved cannabis plant. A new program has launched in the state, and now, even more patients can sign up and receive their medical marijuana card in half the time! Things are happening fast here and more laws and policies are constantly changing and taking effect.

Top 5 Summer Must Haves

With Summer just around the corner (yes, we are still in Spring, for those who may have forgot with the weird weather we get in Chicago), I thought it would be appropriate to kick off the month-long hiatus with some awesome products and strains that I have been really loving and think they would be perfect for those hot summer days!

Patient Review: Justice Grown Pull n Snap

For this review, I wanted to try something different. With working two jobs, sometimes life gets a little busy, so it is awesome to have Cannabuddies that I can count on to hook me up with a great review to spread to the rest of my readers. This time around, I have @ptsdude.health giving us all a wonderful take on a CBD Pull n Snap flight cultivated by Justice Grown.

LA Sage: A CBD Strain

 I have mentioned many different ways to enjoy CBD: from taking baths with it, to taking it in a tincture form and dropping the oil under your tongue. One thing I have not mentioned, nor have I personally tried, is smoking a high CBD strain. Recently, I picked up LA Sage from my dispensary because of the high CBD percentage over the THC count.

When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Going

Over the past year, I have been taking the time out for myself to focus on my true passion and the things that really bring me warmth. This is important because if I wasn't taking this time to work on me, then The Ganja Chronicles would never exist in the first place! The transformation I have been on has not been easy; it takes patience with yourself, with others, and a lot of compassion. I have to constantly remind myself that I am continually growing and that the knowledge I am seeking will not happen overnight.

A Day with Claire-Voyant

When Claire came into Chicago last week, it had already been a handful of years since we have seen each other, so we were totally overdue for a meeting! Not only was this visit special because of her just being here to hang out with me, but because she also brought her gifts and talents with her to help me and other people she was going to see throughout her visit. Claire is a Psychic Medium and Reiki Master, and I dare not say that lightly.

Soak in the Sound (A review on CBD products)

What if I told you that those of us living in fear or living in pain, do not have to anymore? What if I told you that you can find healing and relief at just the press of a button? This blog post is not supposed to sell you on something, but I truly want to convert you into a CBD junkie. The best part is, you can take advantage of CBD even if you are not a medical cannabis patient in your state.

Why I Choose Cannabis

 I am definitely one of those people who are not afraid to admit that they have always been around marijuana. Hell, if it weren't for the plant, I think a lot of things could have gone wrong for me, especially throughout my teen years.

    As do a lot of cannabis smokers, I smoked my first bowl as a Freshman in High School with a very close friend whom I still talk to to this day!

Temporary Cannabis? The Pilot Program in Illinois PT 2

In my last post I went over a lot of the details of the Pilot Program: how to get your card, trustworthy sites to link you to help on getting your card, where the Program is at now in terms of statistics, and a little bit about the politics involved. For this update, I'd like to touch some more on the politics agenda, but I first must point out that I am by no means an expert on this subject with cannabis. Discussing politics is typically my least favorite thing to do, and for the most part, I try to ignore it as much as possible. With so many things changing with a new presidency, it is hard not to get involved and make sure the people who represent you, actually represent you!

2017 Favorites

2018 is kicking off to a great start but I don't want to forget the past year of Medical Cannabis strains! I began my journey as a Medical Cannabis patient early March 2017 and I saved each and every one of my containers for this moment! I wanted to be able to go back in time as I sifted through jars and random packaging and list down my favorite strains that help me overcome the daily struggles of PTSD and chronic pain.
