We’ve been critical of the influx of commercial interest in the growing cannabis industry, yet here we are reviewing corporate edibles. The cannabis community swaps lots of recipes and skills, why buy the end product instead of sharing the way to make it? Not all cannabis patients that can benefit from edibles can make them; in smaller towns or less-accepting cities finding a friendly, trustworthy, reliable edibles-maker isn’t easy; and these days there are a lot more medicinal edibles available commercially than just baked goods.
The first ever Cannabis Life Conference opened on May 13, 2017 in Toronto, ON. The inaugural event took place at a venue called the Evergreen Brick Works, located about 35 minutes outside of the downtown core via public transit.
My companion on this excursion was the wonderful Amy Anonymous. We didn’t know exactly where we were going and the grey clouds in the sky threatened rain. So we used an Uber on the Saturday afternoon to check out the conference and expo.
A very big thank you to all of the competitors at the 2017 Twelve High Chicks M.O.M. Cup. Without your marvellous companies, Canadians that can’t (or don’t want to) join the ACMPR have access to medical and recreational marijuana. And without your entries we literally couldn’t have held the cup! While every sample was beautifully representative of what Canadian weed be, there were only so many cups. Congratulations to the 2017 M.O.M. Cup Winners!
Hey there, it’s Lillie, here to rep the fun side of activism: the steps forward in cannabis access that M.O.M.s provide!
The last few years of cannabis in Canada have seen the efforts of activists paying off massively. We’re still waiting for legalization, but the recommendations for it came through on schedule. While they may not be what we end up with, the Liberal government seems to be following through with this campaign promise. That our government would admit the damage prohibition does to society is a huge win for activism.
We’re ramping up for this month’s Twelve High Chicks M.O.M. Cup! We’re really excited to be working with everyone — sponsors, performers, and contributors. So we want to share a little about some of them with you before the big weekend, February 24-26, 2016. Today we’d like to introduce our first M.O.M. Cup Sponsor: Canadabs!
… Help Your Doctor Change

Discussing Medicinal Cannabis with Your Doctor
With the introduction of the new Accessing Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) released by Health Canada on August 24, 2016, accessing and growing medicinal cannabis is less challenging than ever before. But visiting the doctor is often already a very stressful experience, so discussing medicinal cannabis with your healthcare professional can be a daunting task. I hope this article will prepare you to speak with your doctor about medical cannabis.
1. a skeptical attitude; doubt as to the truth of something.
“these claims were treated with skepticism”
synonyms: doubt, doubtfulness, a pinch of salt…

We’re pretty firmly in the “skeptics camp” here at Twelve High Chicks. We research, reserve judgement when necessary, and doubt anything that sounds too good to be true. But since we’re also pro-medical marijuana, the continued insistence by government organizations that cannabis is a dangerous drug with no medical value is an assertion that we’re … skeptical about. When contesting governmental control it’s important to be skeptical of skepticism.
Let me tell you about it.
From a Mom’s Perspective
I am Canadian mother with my MMPR (Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations) prescription for chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, and depression. Like a lot of MMPR patients, I had used marijuana for years to treat my health problems. Eventually, with the help of my doctors, I decided to give medical marijuana a try.
Being a medical cannabis patient in Canada can be frustrating these days with all the hassles of accessing cannabis legitimately and safely. Licensed Producers just don’t always cut it. So, with so many grey areas for accessing cannabis as a patient, I decided to try ordering my buds online.
I’m searching for the best Mail Order Marijuana (M.O.M.) company that Canada has to offer. Because I value discretion in a grey market, I won’t name the sites I review. I’m sure you can figure out the recreational M.O.M. sites I tried, though.
Nine states will be voting on marijuana legalization measures next week. Arkansas, Florida, Montana, and North Dakota will be determining medical legalization. While recreational use is the focus in Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada. All of this despite the continued haphazard scheduling of cannabinoids under federal law.
