My mom has been very stressed these past few years. From dealing with a 3 month construction job that’s turned into a 3 year project with no end in sight, to being my dad’s primary caretaker, working, she has a lot of things going on. Every time she speaks of all the stressors in her life, I playfully ask her if she wants to smoke. She refuses every time and answers “Why is that your answer to everything?” Because weed is the answer to everything mom!
Even though she will probably never smoke in my lifetime, she was ok with the idea of trying a cannabis topical for the aches in her neck. I asked her if actually brought one would she try it, and she said yes. Finally! Some canna-progress!
I purchased Whoopi and Maya’s “Rub” topical for her from Magnolia Wellness in Oakland. It’s recommended for menstrual aches &pms, but after watching some reviews I learned it’s also good for just aches and pains in general.
It has such a wonderful smell that leaves it scent everywhere. They say to use a liberal amount when rubbing it, but keep in mind being liberal with the topical means leaving it on everything your body touches. I’m talking couches, t-shirts, everything. And it’s just as strong on those things as they are on you.
I asked her how she felt the next morning and she said great. “I think it was your massage” she said, but I think it was both if not solely the topical alone.
It was nice getting her to try something cannabis related and to hopefully show her that cannabis isn’t just forgetting high, but there’s a lot of healing uses to it as well.
I think deep down she knows, but she’s a mom, so she’s not going to ever admit it completely. I’ll take this as a meeting me half way point for now.
One of my latest discoveries this year thus far in the cannabis world has been concentrates. I didn’t really bother with them in the past because I didn’t feel like spending money on one more thing to be able to use it, and it always seemed like a lot for a little.
After seeing my instagram feed filled with images of these beautiful resin draped joints, I decided to give it a try. I enlisted the help of my friend Chiang to help me document the makings of a resin joint.
Hope you enjoy!

I first purchased this strain from Cannabicare Collective in Oakland because they have a really good BOGO deal where you buy an eighth of a high end eighth and get another sungrown eighth for free, and I like a good deal. I spoke to a really nice budtender from there who recommended I try Peach OG as it’s a strong indica with all the traits that make indicas great. The relaxed feeling accompanied with a good body buzz.
It doesn’t take much of this strain to get you relaxed. It starts off as a nice head high but melts down into your body to give you that nice relaxed body buzz that makes you feel tingly all over.
I also find when the head high moves down to my body, I’m more focused and more creative. Being high tends to help you relax enough to be creative without being self defeating and thinking all your ideas are stupid. With this strain I’ve found myself thinking of really good ideas without my usual “noooo that’s dumb” voice intervening. It makes me happy and confident.
Also, appearance wise I find it very pretty. It’s a lighter green with orange hairs and crystals all over.
I’d definitely recommend you try this strain if you have a little extra money as it tends to be on the more pricey side, but it’s definitely a purchase you won’t regret.
