Seventh Annual: "Home Grown Maine '2018'" the future of Cannabis Vegetable Plant.

By patrick quinn | Jun 05, 2018

This past weekend I attended the annual "Home Grown Maine 2018" at the Augusta Civic Center in Augusta. The event  was sponsored by the Medical Marijuana Caretakers of Maine. This is their seventh year.  There were 80 exhibitors, 12 workshops and panels with 60 speakers, they were of great education for the attendees. I was impressed by their expertise and knowledge.

Doctor Dustin Sulak D.O., gave a tremendous presentation on the medical benefits of the various components of the cannabis plant. This is a vegetable plant that has received tremendous discrimination for it's existence.  This government and it's representatives have tried their utmost to eradicate this valuable vegetable plant so it may not be available to the people for healing the illnesses that plague us all. This plant has the hope of helping children with many illnesses such as seizures, tourette syndrome, migraine, chronic pain and cancer, and the list is long.

Two of the businesses displayed are in our neighborhood.

King Bishop has a chemistry laboratory which he makes available to parents who may need to produce medicine for their children from the cannabis they grow themselves.  He gave a wonderful presentation and his chemistry lab reminded me of my High School chemistry days. He is an excellent teacher and provides a service which is an anomaly in this capitalistic culture. He asks nothing in return.  I suggest a donation. He is in Belfast. 207 505-6305.


Creative Culinary Kitchen is a State Inspected and Certified Commercial Kitchen for rent at 133 Back Troy Road, Troy, Maine. Parents and farmers are encouraged to use the facility to process their cannabis crop or other crop, for personal or commercial purposes. It is sometimes difficult to pass inspection from the State for a commercial use of a kitchen, this place has jumped through the hoops to help small businesses in their quest to make a living off the land. These are good people. 207 948-3500

My prayer is that this information may help us to work together for a better world of health and well being.  Peace be with you.
