Hi Everyone. I have a question for you. As most of you know, I have been working on creating a new online course about making your own cannabis topicals. I have been having so much fun experimenting with essential oils and various carrier oils and formulas for the “recipes” that will be included with the course. In fact, there are SO MANY different cannabis topicals recipes to make, I need to reign myself in or this course will never get launched, LOL! So I had to tell myself to calm down and make a list of the ones I really want to include in the first version of the course. After all, much like my online cannabis cooking course, I can always add to it and update it later (once enrolled students get lifetime access including any future upgrades).
So the question is what types of cannabis-infused topicals are most important to you? You can hit the reply button and answer here (yes I actually read the replies when people write to me). Not sure? Here are some possible choices: Pain relief balms, sunscreen, after sun care, wrinkle cream, wrinkle serum, eye creams, bath soaks, body butter, anti-itch cream; all-natural insect repellant; massage oils; aftershave; etc.
Thanks in advance for the input! Now on with today’s newsletter.
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are used daily by over 17 million Americans to treat headaches, arthritis, sports injuries, menstrual cramps and a litany of other debilitating ailments. The two most commonly used NSAIDs are aspirin and ibuprofen with such familiar brand names as Bayer, Motrin, Excedrin, and Advil. Celecoxib and naproxen are lesser-known classes of NSAIDs but they also have recognizable brand names such as Aleve, Naproxin, Naprosyn, and Celebrex.
Although considered “safe,” non-aspirin NSAIDs labels warned of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, kidney failure, ulcers and that they “may” cause heart attacks. Underscoring the seriousness of these warnings, an article published in the November 2013 online issue of the American Journal of Managed Care reported: “each year more than 100,000 patients are hospitalized for NSAID-related GI complications” and “that 16,500 persons die annually from these complications.”
Many people (I have to confess I am not one of them) anxiously await this time of year because once autumn hits, it is officially Pumpkin Spice season! The warm scents of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg augment pumpkin flavored everything it seems!
Well Mary Jane needed to get in on this action, so even though I am not personally a pumpkin fan, I did come up with some great medicated pumpkin recipes that my friends assure me are delicious (and they never hesitate to tell me when my recipe experiments aren’t, so I have no reason to doubt them)!
