I know I tell you all the time what a blessing my daugher is, and those of you who know her know it is the truth. Kendra has absolutely carried me and ACK&R, LLC this week, and she will for as many weeks as it takes for me to get healed. There are a number of things that I simply can't do with a cast on!
The good news is that my pain has been minimal. While my arm was in a splint, I soaked the arm & wrist in a hot bath, then bathed it in Super Salve which seems to have allowed it to end up in the correct healing position. It looks like I won't need surgery, God is so good!
Thank you to everyone who has offered well wishes, that is much appreciated!
Just when I thought I'd be super fast at making capsules ... I've got a green cast instead to slow me down. I had gotten rather fast at knocking out 50 at a pop with the capsules already being separated at start time... but I am happy to say the company has determined they would be so kind as to sell us their product, so we will now have a capsule making apparatus that loads them into the machine, separates them, they then get filled and the lid goes back on. This has been a 100% manual operation thus far ... so we're pretty excited! The down side is that I believe it's a 2 handed operation for the final step, so Kendra may be required to give me a hand, literally, to get this done for the time being.
It's all laughter and good times until the crash, then it's painful! Thursday evening my beautiful daughter Kendra and I were enjoying our first bicycle ride of the season when that "competitive bone" took over. I looked at her and she saw the challenge in my eyes, the race was on!
I didn't last long, maybe 50 yards - she saw the path thru the center of what I describe as a ravine (6 inches wide, 6 inches deep, and about 6 feet) across the road in the cemetery, I didn't. My front tire hit that, as far as I know. Or maybe I hit the brakes hard instead when I saw it? The last thing I remember is heading toward the curb, so I closed my eyes then felt excruciating pain as I hit the ground, praising God that I had a helmet on AND that I didn't hit the curb. I DIDN'T go over the handlebars, my feet were all tangled up in the pedals ensuring I stayed with the bike for the full ride. My knees and right elbow took the brunt although my left hand and wrist hit first, breaking my arm and wrist. I will be forever grateful for my "Safety Bone" that had me dressed in jeans, lace up shoes, leather gloves, long sleeves, and of course a helmet. As an aside, the nurse commented that she'd never seen such clean wounds! I can only imagine how much more painful it would have hurt had there been asphalt imbedded in them. The nurse was surprised we knew about DMSO and she was open to the Cannabis salve we used on the wounds. I was delighted with her attitude after the reception from the first RN we encountered while checking in. He had an almost violent reaction to the mention of Smokeless Cannabis Remedies (SCRs). Some in the medical profession seem to be threatened by how simple yet versatile SCRs are.
Through all of this I have to thank my beautiful daughter Kendra who got me who and what I needed on Thursday night, thanks to our neighbor, the doctor and nurses, and the woman in reception who was much nicer this time... to Mom and Jill for the sandwich and pineapple and more thanks to Kendra who will help me daily for the next several weeks, even more than she does now!
So, this is all to let you know why we are closed today, Saturday June 22nd, 2013. Please call to schedule your next visit! 541-981-2620.
A patient showed up for his appointment today ... and told us that he learned of us from a radio program in California. His sister was listening to a program and we were being discussed.
That's the neatest thing I've heard in a day or two!!!
Blessings to all, looking forward to seeing you soon. Remember to call for your appointment! 541-981-2620.
Holy smokes, that'll be the day, huh? Well, we're on our way to 'that' or something along those lines... but we will get there one step at a time.
Yesterday I was excited to learn about a manual capsule maker that is available. I called and was discussing the product with the sales rep and she asked me what I was going to do with the new machine I'm wanting to purchase... Silly me, raised by my mother to be honest, I reply with, "We make Smokeless Cannabis Remedies; capsules, tinctures, salves, liniment, and the like." "Oh", she says, "you said the c word, I'll have to run this by the boss to see if we can sell you one!"
REALLY?!! I'm having to beg to buy this machine for a licensed Cannabis business in a Medical Cannabis state? She tells me the DEA calls everyone they sell them to - and that her boss is a real stickler... I tell her I'm fine with that, here's my number. We make Herbal Remedies, is there a problem?
She emailed me the needed forms this morning, so I am guessing I may be allowed to make the purchase. I'll keep you posted.
Do you or they take Quillivant XR Methylphenidate HCI? Why? Have you seen the side effects of Quillivant XR? I was reading the "relish" magazine from our newspaper and stumbled across their 2 pages plus 1 column ad that has the side effects taking up most of that space. I have copied and pasted information from their ad below. Keep in mind, this is for CHILDREN with ADHD. (The information below was copied directly from their website http://www.quillivantxr.com/ to ensure accuracy. It mirrors the ad in the "relish" magazine perfectly. My writing is interspursed throughout and will be white.
Common side effects include: (<--- did you note that it says COMMON side effects? Your child can pretty much count on them.)
Are you really going to give that to your child?
Here is more important information you need to know about this poison:
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Quillivant XR is a federally controlled substance (CII) because it can be abused or lead to dependence. Keep Quillivant XR in a safe place to prevent misuse and abuse. Selling or giving away Quillivant XR may harm others and is against the law. Tell your doctor if you or your child have (or have a family history of) ever abused or been dependent on alcohol, prescription medicines, or street drugs.
Quillivant XR should not be taken if you or your child are allergic to methylphenidate hydrochloride, or any of the ingredients in Quillivant XR, or are taking or have taken within the past 14 days an antidepression medicine called a monoamine oxidase inhibitor or MAOI.
Heart-related problems have been reported with methylphenidate hydrochloride and other stimulant medications:
---> Mental (psychiatric) problems can be caused or worsened by methylphenidate hydrochloride and other stimulant medications: (this bold emphasis added by writer).
Quillivant XR may not be right for you. Tell your doctor if:
But wait, there's more! If that isn't enough, below that and before it lists the "common side effects" it says,
"Possible serious side effects of Quillivant XR are heart-related problems and mental problems, as well as slowing of growth (height and weight) in children. Children should have their height and weight checked often while taking Quillivant XR. Quillivant XR treatment may be stopped if a problem is found during these check-ups."
OK, so ... if they don't drop dead, then there's the pharma induced mental health problems ... where is that taking our children? To places like schools where bad things have happened because of these drug induced mental health problems, that's where.
Have you considered Smokeless Cannabis Remedies (SCRs)?! SCRs are the answer for all children and most adults for most conditions and ailments. Cannabis is infused into oil and encapsulated at various strengths for various conditions. When used correctly, lives are changed in wonderful ways. There is no need for your child to be "stoned out of their mind" or to have those other horrible side effects that western medicine offers.
I'm asking you to do yourself a favor ... LEARN MORE! Cannabis Kills Cancer and truly IS the answer for most ailments and conditions people of all ages are fighting. Oh, have you read the side effects of using Cannabis? Possible euphoria. Or ... you might win a gold medal or become President of the United States of America. Go figure.
I am forever telling people that our (internal) Smokeless Cannabis Remedies will bring your body to homeostasis, most especially the capsules. It is my guess that a look at "blood work" even when having an illness or condition would tell a lot about what is going on with a person. I recently had blood work done, and am happy to share my results.
AST: This tests for liver abnormalities: Result is 18 (normal is 0-37)
ALT: This tests for liver abnormalities: Result is 12 (normal is 0-41)
Creatinine: .9, normal is .5-1.
BUN: 9, normal 8-21
Glucose: 81, normal 70-99.
Sodium: 140, Normal 135-145
Potassium 4.0, bormal 3.5 - 5.1
My white blood count was a little elevated (inflammation) but other than that, the RBC Hemoglobin, hematocrit, and platelets were all right there where they needed to be.
I typically only take capsules at night to go to sleep, unless I have a particular ache or pain that is bothering me; if I were to take 3 per day, I'll bet everything would be dead-set on center.
My last 'doctor' used to say, "I wish all my patients had numbers like yours!" but she wouldn't even discuss Cannabis... can you imagine? You understand that's why she's my 'last doctor', right?!
I'm Rhea ... I own the place. My beautiful daughter Kendra and I opened Albany's Canna Kitchen & Research, LLC on 11/11/11. She grew up, married, and moved away ... life has continued and we've had to make a number of changes and adjustments to continue. I am very excited to be teaching people how to make life-changing, life-saving Smokeless Cannabis Remedies.
