Gloucester’s connection with Thailand

Did you know Gloucester had a connection with Thailand. I found this plaque on my walk today.


This gold-framed gift from the King of Thailand Birthplace Foundation to Gloucester on Aug. 30, 2009 at a city hall celebration of Gloucester’s designation on the “Trail of Thai Royalty in Massachusetts” shows Prince Mahidol coming to Gloucester in 1916 on his way to studying public health at Harvard.  He spent a lot of time at 3 Page St, which now has a commemorative historic bronze plaque. The Prince was father of the current King of Thailand — the longest reigning and most beloved monarch in the world, and who was born in Cambridge, MA in 1927 — the first monarch ever born in the USA
Thanks to Amy Shapiro for the photos

CBD and Quitting Smoking!

Cape Ann Wellness

Do you or someone you know want to quit smoking cigarettes? An effective alternative to transition off of smoking is replacing cigarettes with Hemp Flower! We have Organically Grown Artisan Hemp Flower. Vermont Grown! We have helped several clients become former smokers! Oh and by the way, smoking hemp makes u happy too!

Hemp is a type of very, very low THC Cannabis that is used to make CBD products.
Hemp flower from Northeast Kingdom Hemp is organically grown, is less harsh than a cigarette, I suggest it is less dangerous than a cigarette and most importantly, still provides the ‘smoking experience’ that’s become habitual and smokers have come to enjoy. If you’ve ‘tried everything else…..’give it a try!
