Heather Jackson returns and takes us through the Realm of Caring registry which is one of only three like it in the world.

I'm your host Seth Adler. Check us out on social with the hammer can economy. That's two ends and the word economy. Heather Jackson.
Speaker 1: That's next Friday. Who knows where I'm going to be. Where are you going to be next Friday? We're going to be getting ready for our walk. Okay. Tell us about the walk Heather Jackson. So we have our national walk every October. Okay. And so that's what we'll be taking place on Saturday, the 14th in Colorado Springs and then there's virtual options for folks who are not. I'm here virtual so I don't even have to walk in the walk to walk the walk where your slippers and hang out on the couch and, and. Yeah. And benefit a great cause. This is don't have to leave your house. I mean you meet up with your friends or your reimagining the way people walk. We're reimagining the way people do everything. It's what we're doing. So you have a new realm of caring, which I mean if anybody, Heather Jackson's name, they know realm of caring and if anybody knows the realm of caring, they don't necessarily know your name.
Speaker 1: They should but they don't have to. They may not. Right. Sometimes that's a good thing, right? Sure. Yeah. I don't need to know. Hi everybody. Exactly. Like they should know the operator's name, whoever they're talking to or whatever. Right. But they don't need to know heather's name, but there's a tagline now that we definitely should know. Yeah. So I mean we've really been organic and our process processes that at rambled caring and just responding to what's needed so we are reimagining the way that people think and talk and respond to cannabis and the people who use it. Perfect. So that's very well said and what I want to do now is go backwards to make sure that everybody's caught up so that we can go forward. Great. You and me and paige had a nice conversation which is an episode which people can go back to.
Speaker 1: Great. But just for the purposes of saving people time, when was that? Do you remember when? That was? A year and a half ago, I'm guessing would guess that. Okay. But what I'm asking is how did you get to the point of, you know, what we should do our little tagline and this is what it should be. So you know, all the way back when, you know, let's just quickly rediscover your way into cannabis here. Sure. Right. So you know, what happened as far as why I'm in the industry in because of my son. So I, yeah, if you've followed wherever scaring, you know that it is ran by a bunch of parents who had sick kids and so my son was receiving hospice palliative services and had a very severe seizure disorder and suffered for almost a decade and so we started using cannabis in July of 2012 and it puts a Chi's condition in remission.
Speaker 1: Literally his seizures stopped within three months. And so of course I'm extremely passionate about this and the plant and felt I'm not just an obligation but a real need to inform the community about this option. I didn't hear about it from my doctor and so a lot of families are really out of medical options and those were primarily the families that we serve. So we wanted to find the nearest mountain top and, and, and begin to say, tell these stories and help families use cannabis realm of caring is on the top of a hill or at least on the side of the hill. Yeah, right. Yeah. Yeah. So you actually did find a mountain top in, in Colorado Springs. People don't have to go to you because you have this whole phone bank thing. How did you decide on that? Well, originally what we did was we had a private facebook group and that was what we could do and we would respond to inquiries that way.
