    I just started doing medical cannabis reviews on my YouTube channel. I was afraid to do it for the longest time because of what happened last year, but said fuck it, lol. Lots of people are doing it again, and everyone got their channels back. They can’t demonetize me, and I’m being careful. :). Don’t forget to subscribe if you want to see future video’s. I have a ton of stuff to review from 3 different dispensaries here on hand right now, with more to come. This is just for fun.

    If this is not acceptable mods, please let me know.

    Everything I review comes from a licensed, legal medical cannabis dispensary. Some dispensaries here are known for bad products, so I stay away from them.

    Licensed legal dispensary doesn’t mean anything in terms of the products carried unfortunately ...in a health perspective

    No, I don’t have equipment, but I have been using cannabis in its many forms for decades. I can immediately tell if something isn’t purged properly/has mold/spider mite web, etc.

    Thanks for the vid @Vicki

    Also a mmu in FL and I have yet to try out vidacann. Only growhealthy distalates and trulieve flower/carts which I returned the carts.

    Can't wait till more dispensarys start selling flowers!!! Vidacann should start soon. Knox in mid April as well! Gh said soon they will too. Going to be a better year in Florida! Unless they try capping the thc to 10%

    Edit: all good

    it's.getting.better.all.the.timeeeeee ;)

    You should really try VidaCann. Their products are exceptional, and better than the other dispensaries I’ve tried. I’ve tried them all but Knox, MUV, and Medmen. I was using Grow Healthy until last month when they decided to be asses and raise the price of their syringes to $90 each. Greedy fucks. Yes, they lowered the price back down to $75, but that’s still $3 more than they used to be. Nope, fuck them for even trying to screw the patients. :)

    I won’t use Trulieve anymore either because their TruClear was always short. Plus there is the mold and spider mite issue with their flower cups. Maybe that isn’t the case with smokable because we can see the buds, but it still worries me. I can get an $18 1/8th with their $25 smokable discount, but not sure I even want to do it. Hubby doesn’t want me to.

    I also left DocMJ because those assholes wanted to charge me $169 TWICE to add smokable, and then they told me there was no guarantee I would get approved because Dr. Chung doesn’t like smoking. WTF? Then they lowered the price to only $25 extra, but still no guarantees, so $194. No thanks. I found a better doctor in Longwood. He wants $199 ($5 more), but he will give me smokable, and he’s only $139 every 7 months, not $169. He understand the entourage effect, and that I might want to use whole buds in my own vaporizer or make edibles.

    I’ll actually be saving money, so I guess they did me a favor, same with Grow Healthy. Thanks to them, I found a better MMJ doctor and a better dispensary.

    I’m dying for VidaCann to release their LA Kush Cake flower. They said it was coming this coming week. Maybe in smokable form? I hope so. :)

    Don’t forget to subscribe and tape the bell so you won’t miss any reviews. :)

    I asked viewers which product they want me to review next, after the Cookie Toast cart review, but haven’t received a response yet. I might review the Strawberry Cough jar next.

    Heard the "jar" is just distalates and some have said they use plant terpenes so it's just not natural tasting.. gh has been excellent to me so far! But I much prefer whole flower.. also use Docmj and haven't had issues yet the 25$ to add isn't too bad but the way they went about telling everyone before they had everything figured out turned a lot of people off..


    Vidacann do free delivery? All the dispensarys are an hour away. I have about 8 options all about the same milage away so free delivery is awesome.

    Yes, VidaCann has free delivery on all first orders, then after that, it’s free with a $100 order. Their jar concentrate is a distillate, but the best distillate I’ve ever had. TokinTim420 on YouTube was right. The Pck is the first true Indica in Florida. That, and the Strawberry Cough, are potent as hell.

    One jar lasts me about 3 weeks compared to Grow Healthy’s syringes that lasted me a week. More bang for my buck, and only $8 more than Grow Healthy. I like the taste of the Pck, but I love the taste of the Strawberry Cough. It’s frickin delicious, lol

    VidaCann’s products just seem better all around, flower, concentrates, carts.

    Hi Vicki,

    Nice review.

    Suggestion (and you may already be thinking of doing this). On your next review, do a comparative analyses to your first review. Kinda helps to put everything in context.

    Had to kind of laugh at @Maninthemachine comments though. Sounded exactly like me when I used to get really aggressive with manufacturers when they introduced new product. What I disagree with is him holding your feet to the fire with ........
    simply because you are reviewing your experience with the product and just because you have not done any extensive lab testing does not make your review any less valid nor does it make your job any more dangerous than anyone else's use of these products unless they grow and process their own.

    With that said though, he does bring up an interesting point that we all need to be concerned about and that is that purchasing product from a licensed dispensary does not yet guarantee that the product is free of pesticides. There are many reports, that I can post up here if anyone is interested, where products that were purchased from legally licensed dispensaries where then tested in a lab and the results where that they had very high levels of pesticides which should be a concern to all of us. On the other hand, I don't even want to think about the Mexican brick weed that we used to roll up and smoke back in the late 60's, early 70's.

    Keep up the good, Vicki. Looking forward to the next one.

    To clarify ,was speaking g solely on health terms about equipment needed to test etc. that’s all I was bringing up ,the ahealth aspect. Because 99.99% of distillate out there is completely pesticide ridden toxic sludge. You should see what they use to make it.

    Suggestion, @Maninthemachine. Rather than challenge Vicki, I think that this topic is important enough that it deserves its own thread and I have no doubt that we already have a few of them going on as we speak. I just don't see a need to challenge a reviewer who is reviewing her experience with the product by telling her that she shouldn't be using it due to health concerns. From my perspective, we should ALL be concerned in regards to pesticides along with chemicals used in extracts, so why pick on her in a thread where she is just trying to provide a service to the community.

    Ok, nothing more to say.

    Carry on Vicki.

    Hi @lwien good to see you. :)

    I plan to compare the two jar concentrates and the two flowers I have tried so far. Going to do one product at a time.

    There is no way I could lab test anything I get at the dispensaries here. My reviews are only to help other patients in Florida. Give them my personal experience with the product, show it to them, give them details about it. Just info they might need when making a choice. Things I wish I had when purchasing a lot of these products.

    I totally agree about contaminants, i.e.-pesticides, improper purging. That should definitely be discussed, in another thread. ;)


    Thanks, doing the best I can. :)

    Never said should :) simply voiced my thoughts on the dangers of testing without proper equipment. In this context totally get that isn’t needed. Just someone reviewing which is cool. What isn’t cool is someone reviewing a toxic product and then recommending it solely based on their experience minus the actual effects it may have on the body (in terms of toxins,pesticides etc )
    Last post on thread as well. Sorry about the delay Vicki ! Have fun reviewing ,be safe :)

    Great job, @Vicki. Just ignore the trolls, and keep it up. People that do nothing, love to pick on those that do. It takes initiative, drive and discipline to have a channel. You have my support. I'm under a different name on YouTube, initials R K. Going to subscribe right now. Thanks for contributing to the cannabis community.

    Thanks! I appreciate it! :)

    People really have no idea the work that goes into creating just one video. The content (ideas, etc.), recording it, editing, uploading. I had no idea just how much work until I started doing this. That’s one reason I’m only getting out 1-2 video’s a week right now.

    I got that email too! I signed up for their email newsletter too so I wouldn’t miss anything. :)

    I love that they have weekly/daily specials. They keep saying their LA Kush Cake flower is coming out “soon.” LOL. I saw them make a comment on their Facebook page “next week.” It would be SO nice if it happened to come out on Thursday, and in smokable form. :)
