So by now you should have heard, the Susan G. Komen Foundation made headline news last week for their decision to “change their granting policies”, essentially cutting funding to Planned Parenthood. Pretty quickly they learned that you don’t pick on underserved women in this country. I’m very proud that so many of us banded together in support of Planned Parenthood and strong-armed SGK into changing their new policy before the ink even dried. While this is great news for the women PP serves, we at PuffHo Read more.....

I have been helping treat patients for the past few years. I have seen cases that I thought were more emotional than physical. Sickness is a state of mind just as much as a diagnosed disease. If you don’t believe you will get better you never will. Cannabis as a medicine is a wonderful tool to break down those barriers in the mind. We get a euphoric feeling and we can forget our issues.
Now that I am learning the Art of Living cuisine, I can truly see what the man made drugs do to the body. They are a constant source of unnatural poison; blocking your body’s natural impulses. Would you do Read more.....

I have taken every approach I can think of when it comes to edibles. I started with the famous pot brownie and loved those years. As I got more into patient care and less into making money for the collective, I started to see that we are not actually helping our patients but hurting them by making food with sugar and calling it medicine.
I must say that I think that Sugar has its place and I am not saying we should ban all sugary cannabis delights. I am saying that if you say you are cooking for patients but neglecting their overall health, then really you are just helping Stoners get high.
I’m just as guilty as the rest, during my first few years I didn’t care about the ingredients to much, just that the amount of THC was extreme. I loved to make super fatty foods with Cannabutter and then finish my meals with a super sweet dessert.
As I gradually Read more.....
