Hey Sick Person


by Tab Moura   This goes out to the newest members of the chronic illness community.   I am a cannabis educator and wellness coach. Over the last year I’ve done a lot of listening. Do you know what people fear more than dying from Covid? They fear getting sick with Covid and never *fully* […]

Focusing on Wellness


by Tab Moura It’s the way the wind blows while I’m dabbing the Ambrosia. It’s the caryophyllene scented sunset after a sweaty day’s work. It’s the smell of limonene while I watch the mist rise off of the pond… it’s not just a medicine, it’s more than a medicine. It’s part of the backdrop of […]

What is a Seizure?


by Tab Moura What is a seizure? A seizure is when one or more of your neurons suddenly depolarize, before rapidly re-polarizing, causing an event (a seizure). Put simply, a seizure is when your brain cells are overreacting to stimuli, which leads to a power surge. What causes the sudden spike in brain cell drama? […]

It’s Just A Season


by Tab Moura Over the last few years I have changed in a very deep way. Honestly, if I hadn’t lived it myself, I don’t know if I would believe such a shift was possible. I don’t usually appreciate it when people say “it’s just a season.” In my experience, it’s rarely my close friends […]

Against Fear


by Tab Moura   I remember the night that I realized she wasn’t ok. The night I switched from “woe is me, my baby never sleeps,” to “why isn’t she sleeping?” It was 2017, I had a newborn, and my 2 year old was having hour long night terrors every night. She was thrashing, and […]

TOMATO MASTERPIECE


by Tab Moura We are a neurodivergent household. My husband and 2 of my daughters are autistic, we have— shall I say, significant differences in our food preferences. To be clear, I genuinely respect the differences between my husband and I, but this is an area we have had strong differences in. We were married […]

Romance and Strong Character


By Tab Moura My memories that come to mind, when I reflect on my rougher chronic illness years, are often bitter sweet. Early in my marriage my husband and I endured incredibly painful seasons of debt, unemployment, the push-and-pull of checking out, and angry words shared… but these were years that truly taught us to […]

Bee Responsible, Grow Weed


By Tab Moura There’s been a lot of buzz around Cannabis lately, and I’m not just talking about legalization. So we know that Cannabis is beneficial, it’s been known to treat numerous health conditions, head to toe, from Glaucoma to Plantar Fasciitis… but what if our beloved Devil’s Lettuce is also capable of saving the […]

Compassionate IND Program


by Tab Moura The history of cannabis in the United States has some dark and terrible chapters; the prohibition of cannabis has caused irreparable harm to the lives of many innocent people. Cannabis is a plant that has been used as a pawn to manipulate certain people into compliance, which is something we’re still fighting […]

The Smoking Section


by Tab Moura My husband is a first-generation American, his family came here from Portugal. Their family gatherings aren’t so different from anyone else’s, but there is such variety in this family- such acceptance. They yell during soccer. They are bilingual. They make Portuguese foods from old family recipes. They tell stories of life before […]

Earth Day: The Good I Can Do


by Tab Moura When I think of Earth Day, I think of— well— the earth. The whole world. All at once. And wow… where do we even begin, right? We can talk about common topics if you really wanna, like climate, and climate, and viruses, but I feel like sometimes we miss the forest for […]

Weed Like to Talk About Dandelions


by Tab Moura Spring is here! I’ve been watching the landscape closely over the last few weeks; the weeds are coming and the bees aren’t the only ones happy to see them.  One of the most common weeds that I come across locally is the dandelion. Far from being the only wildflower native to Oklahoma, […]

My Road To 40


by Tab Moura I read once that 40 years old is when most women truly reach a point in their lives where they don’t care as much what other people think. It’s when they begin living more authentically and surround themselves with friendships that are more energizing. In 2021 I will be turning 32, and […]

Plant Medicine for Spring


by Tab Moura This may not come as a surprise to you, but I’ve become known for my creativity with natural medicine. While I do enjoy making natural choices, my use of natural products is truly out of necessity due to my health disorders.  The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that it’s not easy to […]

Cannabis: Crossing the Barrier


by Tab Moura Imagine being in a large facility, you know that it contains a wealth of knowledge, riches, and untold technological advancements… but you don’t have electricity in all of the rooms. So, you know what’s there, you just cannot analyze it. This is my experience with Epilepsy. My seizures affect my ability to […]

Miles To Go


by Tab Moura After 12 months of dust storms and tumbleweeds, it was time to make the miserably long, brown drive from my apartment in Lubbock, to my parents’ place near Houston. Going home after leaving home is an indescribable experience. For some people, home wasn’t a safe place; for others leaving home is the […]

Electrolytes for Balanced Health


by Tab Moura These cold weeks always make me pensive… perhaps the cold weather atmosphere makes time feel slower, perhaps it’s all in my imagination. What I know for sure is winter puts things in perspective for me like no other time of the year. As a mother, I have experienced such a rollercoaster of […]
