Welcome back returning readers, and also to those venturing into uncharted waters. Fair warning for the newbies, for from what I’m told, ‘yours truly’ can be an acquired taste. People have different points of view. Accounts on the time of day, and what the subject is. Pertaining to myself, I try to as a writer, to offer a variety of topics. Most fitting under the pop culture umbrella. I’m an individual and not into group think. Am fairly capable of drawing my own conclusion. I’m not an academic. Average ‘Joe’ type, blue collar kind of guy. I believe that alternative medicine is some serious shit. Cannabis may not be a cure all, but it sure can compliment, or get this …. perhaps even alter for the better what the average person is prescribed by their doctor(s). How many countless of stories are out there of people consuming pot to help get through difficult times? I have my own. Is part of a book that is still available on Amazon (dot com). Cannabis treats me well. Booze damn near killed me.
The last published write up I authored was just days ago for a classic rock 24/7 Internet station: Classic Rock Radio (UK). Doing this for five years now. My official title is; American Correspondent. The newest article was all about; Dick. For those interested, the piece can be found doing a simple Internet search. Just cut and paste the following into any Internet search engine:

That should do it. I’ve since received praise and good news regarding that review. The station informed me that I’m drawing in more female readers than usual.

I recently wrote about another cannabis edible made by Robhots. A 125mg THC mango gummy. I absolutely loved it! After that, it got me thinking about seriously trying to use only, or even mostly, medicated edibles throughout my day. Less pharmaceutical (if safely possible). One of the first questions that I wanted to answer for myself, was if this could be affordable, for the average everyday blue collar person out there. I’ll take for granted that professional business folk, could easily afford pot, especially at medical prices. So not really an issue with them. Make around 30 thousand and be married with two kids, and a large dog with an endless appetite, and it matters what things cost. I’m focusing on sixty thousand or less. These folks (including myself) have a budget. Be it a senior living solely off their social security. Disabled is the same. Or earn between 10 and 15 bucks an hour (two part-time 20-hour jobs). Part of life for the mature/adult thing is to be financially responsible. If cannabis is to replace what can be a very cheap pharmaceutical solution, it at least needs to be just as affordable.
Aspirin can kill you. I was told back in the 1970’s by an adult in which I was under their care, that an aspirin overdose was a nasty way to do yourself in. Tears up your stomach. Being a teen, I, of course, questioned this. What would one care about tearing up their stomachs, if wanting to be dead anyway?”
Point is what is considered a normal everyday go to, can be abused, possibly harming you fatally. Eat a whole bottle. The kind that looks like a knock-off M&M candy (colorful coated tablets so not to tear up your stomach). The results are, you’re dead! No coming back from that. Stiff City! That’s if the wicked witch Aunt Patsy who informed me of this was indeed correct. I smoked a ton of pot over the decades. I never once OD’ed on it. Of course, I wasn’t ever hoping to do that. Most people who have too much THC in their system will go to sleep. Been there, done that! Anytime it happened, I always woke up.
The cannabis edibles (medical) infused with raw THC Distillate (remember them) were packaged in a box, that inside contained a child proof plastic container, where the cannabis gummies could be found. All the information the law wants you to know and more is printed on the outside packaging. I had a real fresh batch. Oh, and it comes with a cool Robhots sticker. Smart advertising. Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon (1972), came with two stickers, and a poster (album).
Successfully opening the child proof container (typically the same as what flower is sold in), the sweet fruity aroma was evident. On a Tuesday I consumed two tangerine gummies. A total of 100 mg of distillate THC. Dosing was spaced apart. Was reacting within an hour, or so it seemed. About four hours into it, I felt that I could safely do another tangerine medicated gummy. Whole and not cut/divided to lower the dose. Can do this with a butter knife, btw. Having simple mathematical skills, and one can figure out a dose for themselves that they can handle, without going off the deep end. Something that can help me forget about my injuries, that’s almost just as damn good as the opiates I can get at a local pharmacy, for a super low cost.
Know the strain. These gummies are a hybrid, more sativa than indica. All my tests were done during the day. Complimenting the experience with medium-strong ground coffee; Maxwell House. The caffeine and edible give me a ‘high’ that worked for me. Wake n’ Bake! When medicated, I was more than able to get stuff done. No melting in bed while watching Netflix.
A crazy-delicious gummy, made so one would purposely not taste anything resembling Mother Earth. Awesome effects! Isn’t that what we want? Otherwise, we might as well be eating candy. The next time, three gummies, spaced out to last from the time I awoke to the time I crashed at night. The chronic pain was minimal. Two tangerines, and seeking variety, one pineapple, in which tasted as good as the tangerine ones.
For those keeping the flavor score; one container has ten pieces, so the breakup is Tangerine 4, and Pineapple 6. Wonderful for these taste buds! If not having THC as an active ingredient, I’d still eat the gummies. The whole thing at one sitting would be easily doable.
The last five solid gummies were split up two and three. Two more different days. Was sorry on the fourth and final testing day. During all that, I smoked less flower. Took my nerve medication only at night. No over the counter pain relievers. No thinking of doing opiates, or buying a pint of Jack Daniels. Congratulations Robhots!
FYI: Regarding opiates/booze, and just so we’re all on the same page … those are physically addicting. People can become mentally addicted to pot. It’s not for all adults. Take a person with mental disabilities and get them high on pot, and what you’ll get is a stoned mentally disabled person. Food for thought.

Walk out price at Verts Neighborhood Dispensary, at the time I picked this up, was about $36.00 (including tax .. having valid marijuana license) … ten medicated THC infused tasty gummies … breaks down to $3.60 a gummy. Lasted me four days. If money was no object, I believe three of these gummies a day, and then smoking some strong indica (cannabis) at night, could help keep the doctor away. Lower my smoke intake. Include the cost of flower and tax, and again having a valid marijuana license, we’re looking at about $12.80 a day. Pharmaceuticals are of course cheaper, over the counter as well as that which could be prescribed. If affordable, nothing better in investing in, than one’s health. Of course, I recommend this
Of course, I recommend this Robhots product. If looking for it to be financially feasible, and again this is with weed (1/4 gram at night), it’s a three to four hundred dollar a month habit. Based on prices I’m seeing today around the Fort Collins area (medical prices). For others, maybe less THC than what it would take for myself., and that would lower the cost; 2 edibles a day instead of three. Forgo the smoking. Lots of ways to make it work.
Robhots make a wonderful line of products. At least the two different items I checked out so far. I deem this was a cool writing assignment. Thanks to the incredible budtenders at Verts (in Fort Collins, CO) for recommending.
