>> Master Breeder
They call me @the_medical_mitten. Co-owner of Radicle Genetics. I started out just growing bagseeds until I met @phattybmc who promptly met me at a gas station with clones, some seeds, and some cbd samples. All of which changed the game for me. After I had my own little grow room accident which gave us the Mother of God strain, breeding cannabis immediately became something I took very seriously. I enjoy the process of it I.e. making selections, pairing of parents, creating unique terp/cannabinoid profiles.
After I started growing I really noticed how much cannabis helped me with my pain and inflammation. Being diagnosed with severe degenerative arthritis in my lower back (most recently ankylosing spondylitis/fusing disease), diverticulitis in my gut, and a mild form of epilepsy I needed all the help I could get without being dependent on pharmaceuticals. It helps me manage my symptoms without over doing it and killing my liver in the process.
I’ve recently lost my father to stage 4 lung cancer. By the time we figured out he was sick the cancer had spread to almost his entire body, including his brain. We tried to be aggressive with full extract cannabis oil (feco) but it was too late. It’s been a very difficult thing to deal with, but it drives me to do what I can to help others suffering from this horrible disease.
