Fresh update on "cannabis" discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence
"In 2018, the British government gave a medical cannabis license to 12 year old Billy Caldwell. He had epilepsy and severe seizures because of it. His mother Charlotte had gone to Canada for cannabis oil to treat the condition, but when she returns to London, it was confiscated. I am now calling for an urgent meeting with the health secretary. And the Home Secretary. I will ask them to urgently implement a program that no provides immediate access to the meds that they so desperately needs. The campaign worked. Billy and another boy Alfie dingley said a precedent in Britain by obtaining licenses to receive cannabis treatments legally. Cases like Billy's Alfie dingley's and others like it have shown that we now need to look more closely at the use of cannabis based medicines in the healthcare sector in the UK. That autumn cannabis was legalized for patients with exceptional clinical need. But three years on children who have that need still aren't getting hold of it. If you're an adult and medical cannabis is appropriate, you can usually get it on a private prescription, but it's a very different story for these children with neurological disorders. The situation for access to medical cannabis for children is not a good one at the moment. Natasha loder is The Economist's health policy editor. Billy Caldwell is one of only three children who've been given prescriptions by the national health service. Britain's public health provider. And there are small number of children who have managed to get this treatment privately, private cannabis prescriptions for these children is something that a few very specialists neurologists can do. But at the moment, there are only two that can do it and neither is taking on new patients. But presumably there are other treatment options for children with epilepsy. Yes, for most epileptic children there are other far better options. There's a range of anti epileptic drugs, there's even a diet, the ketogenic diet helps, and there are also some interventions. But some children don't respond to these treatments and they're having hundreds of seizures a week. Sometimes even hundreds a day. And these cause neurological damage, progressive, neurological damage sometimes. And they also often pose a risk of death as well to these children. These children who may struggle to have any kind of normal life, then they can not develop in the way that other children can, and they spend huge amounts of time in and out of hospital. And it's in these cases that their parents say cannabis that contains a small amount of tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, which is the psychoactive compound in cannabis. Can really transform their lives. And so why is access to that particular formulation so restricted? Well, many people are pointing to guidelines from the British pediatric neurology association. And this organization doesn't advise using medical cannabis with THC, because it feels there's not enough data on safety and efficacy. The BP and a says it's concerned about a possible adverse events that cannabis with THC might bring to these children. And I spoke to the head of the BMP Aleister Parker, and he says, in animal trials, small quantities of THC have actually made seizures worse. And that THC has been associated with psychological problems in teenagers. What parents are saying is, look, this treatment has such a transformative effect on children who are in such dire circumstances. These sort of theoretical concerns are just not primary and shouldn't be primary in the mind of clinicians. Children who have accessed these medicines, they may be able to go to school, they may be able to do all sorts of things that they just can't do if they're having seizures all the time and they're in hospital. But those BP and a guidelines you mentioned aren't binding, right? Doctors can make their own call as to what to prescribe, can they not? Doctors pay a lot of attention to how other professionals in the field behave. And so when you have guidelines like this, they do carry a lot of weight. And not only does the association, not advise that this treatment is prescribed, they also tacitly suggest that clinicians could be held responsible if anything were to go wrong. And I think advocates were really expecting more flexibility for doctors with these guidelines. Something that would say, well, it really tragic situations really difficult situations that they would be allowed to exercise more of their own individual judgment. In a lot of countries, there is a little bit more flexibility in what sorts of drugs are available. And with regards to the evidence, we do know that medical cannabis does work to reduce seizures because we also have lots of trials that are not randomized controlled trials, which is the gold standard of evidence. But there are lots of trials and many studies that have shown that medical cannabis can have an effect on epilepsy. So is it just a matter of the BP and a sort of catching up with that received wisdom and amending its guidelines is there anything else to be done? If the experts can't resolve the differences, it may end up landing in the lapse of politicians once again. It may be necessary for politicians to make a sort of clearer statement about what their intent was when the law was changed in 2018 to allow for medical cannabis to be used. And it seems to me at least that their intent very much was that these children should be able to access these medications. My sense, though, is that politicians are reluctant to get involved now, because it looks like a dispute between doctors, but parents are going to continue to put quite a lot of pressure on politicians to resolve this somehow. They're getting very frustrated. They're also turning to the black market. Some of them may have to leave the country to get treatment. There are other countries like Holland or Canada where getting access to this medicine for children in these conditions is just not an issue. And so it seems to me that without some kind of political solution, it isn't going to get resolved anytime soon. And that's going to have a potentially devastating effect.

"You about everything pertaining to cannabis for a vape, flour, edibles, strained, and everything in between. Okay, hey, everybody. Welcome back to Tuesday. We're super excited to be able to see you guys again. Hope your week has been well Brandon. Ah, yeah, it's been a great week. Yeah. Oh yeah. Very chill. It's been pretty chill. I'd say. For the most part. Yeah. I'm sure everybody has been feeling pretty good about not having smoke going over their state right now. I mean I am right now. It's been rough and gross, the last several weeks. Yeah, but, you know, thank goodness, you know, hope everybody's okay out there and Northern California. Our hearts go out to those people out there who have been affected by it. Yeah, as far as they're horrible. So talking about too much smoke. Too much smoke. Too much smoke, okay, we're gonna be talking today about a topic that I think almost every single person has experienced being on cannabis for a while and for those who are looking into it. It's a good cautionary tale for you. What are we talking about today, Brandon? Too much. Too much. Is there such a thing? Yes. Yeah, I would say so. I think there is too much. And it's dosing. You know? Right. And especially today, I would say for the last ten years as it could have been longer than that, definitely. But as concentrates have been more and more prevalent within, I don't want to say in our society because it sounds so freaking sociologist, but it's just really the cannabis that you are able to get now compared to what the flower childs of the 70s and the 60s, even the 80s. Yeah. Even then, they didn't have the high potency of cannabis as they do today. Even then, I'd say when I first tried smoking back and 2006, chosen. Yeah, 2006. So it's been stronger. Oh yeah, it's a lot stronger now than it was back then. Even the good staff back then was nothing compared to what there is now. Yeah, it's so strong today. And you get concentrates and extracts and those are 60, 70, 80, 99%. You know, it reminds me of that. Did you ever hear that one 9-1-1 call from a police officer who took a pot brownie from when they did a bust? It was a long time ago. And super funny because he him and his wife ate these two brownies. And then they're calling 9 one ones saying, I can't feel my body, I think I'm dying. Please come help us. Finding a thing. But you know, in that moment and I can share some personal experiences here and Brandon can definitely share some as well, but for me, I've had a few instances where I've had too much. And so kind of going to go through the stages of having too much. You don't realize it at first that you've had too much. Sometimes you do right away. And one of the things that can come from it is a feeling of panic. Yeah, a lot of confusion, anxiety, paranoia, panic, fast heart rate, delusions, or supposedly hallucinations, increased blood pressure, sometimes severe nausea or vomiting, but that's in rare. Oh my goodness, you know cases. I told you about that. Long time ago, right? It was one of my first experiences with having that much cannabis. So I had experimented with cannabis, not when I was young, but well, I would say you're a lot younger, over 20 years ago when I was in the navy. I was about to get out, and smoked a big fat blunt with a couple of guys. And I don't even like we didn't do anything. We played cards and fell asleep on the couch at some random strangers house. Tens about right? Yeah. I mean, it was bad, but I remember one time it was a French, she's like, hey, come over and let's hang out and we started smoking and she's loading up this little pipe and we smoke that bowl and after it, I was like, okay, I'm feeling really good. I'm cracking jokes, having a good time and then she loads up another bowl. And the voice in my head says don't do that. Don't you are so high right now. And I said, she's like, hey, you want to smoke some more. I'm like, heck, yeah. Shit. So I ended up smoking it in my laughter went from laughter to slight laughter to no talking to. I just need to hold perfectly still. And she said, what's your problem and pushed me and I got up and ran down the hallway. Had my hand over my mouth and a puking and it's squirting through my fingers and I get to the eye open up the door and I just yak into the toilet. And I just laid on the floor. It was so cold. It felt so good. And I passed out. She left me on the floor there . Dude, what the hell? I'm so sorry. So, yeah, the nausea part can happen. Yeah, I have a buddy that when we first were smoking together, I remember a time that he was smoking and apparently got too high. And I just thought I needed to have an exorcism because he just was sitting on the couch projectile vomiting for just like a minute or two, and me and my body were just in shock. And I was just, I walked to the closet, grabbed two or three towels as these puking and laid it in front of him on the puke 'cause he just kept puking, and I was like, all right? We're gonna wait for a minute. And then he finished, and he was fine. Oh, baby. I'm not laughing 'cause it is horrible, but I'm laughing because I know what that feels like. When you're there because it's so hard and we can go into other stories about having too much and when is it that a person should kind of slow it down? Is it their tolerance? Because some people just have a natural tolerance, so they don't know how far they can go. I mean, most people who are new to a two don't know how far they can go. Or what they can handle or what is a good dose for them. And that's always different for each person. So test it out, start slow, and increase it from there. Now, most of the two high doesn't typically come from smoking. Most of the time it comes from edibles. Yeah. Edibles is unfortunate edibles and tinctures. With smoke, you're getting a small amount by milligram. Into your system and you can, I mean, you'd have to spend its instantaneous you feel it you okay, but with inedible, remember it can take short as half hour I've seen that, 2025 minutes on the shortest ones I've started to feel hours upwards to three hours. Yeah. And then it finally kicks in and unfortunately, it kicks in all at once. And so typically people they'll take like if they've had too much they'll have an edible and then they'll smoke a little bit. And.
What's Stopping Weed Growers From Going Greener?
"So i've read. It takes the equivalent greenhouse gas emissions of tank of gas in your car. To produce an ounce of cannabis that seems surprisingly high. Is that accurate. Yes that is accurate in to be clear. It's a high energy efficient car not one of your trucks. That's gonna run a lot of gas. It's a pretty. We're looking at somewhere around forty miles a gallon. So i'm guessing electricity for the grow lights. is a big factor there. What else causes all those emissions. When you produce cannabis so cannabis is predominantly grown indoors. And you mentioned the grow lights create huge amount of energy consumption but what happens in addition to the lights is that these lights are really hot and so then you have to bring in a c. You have to bring in a lot of other systems that also take electricity to keep the climate perfect for growing cannabis. So this number jumped out at me. When i started reading about this cannabis. The industry's footprint. Already accounts for more than one percent of us electricity consumption and ten percent in massachusetts. How is the industry addressing those emissions. The problem right now is that no one's really thinking about this terms of how do we reduce the energy consumption. Some states are passing some laws massachusetts. For example is requiring growers to use led lights which does reduce the energy consumption. But a lot of states. Don't have these rules and the federal government overall just isn't talking about this.

"What's up brandon. Hey jesse hey what. what's today man. Today's tuesday is tuesday tuesday. Another wonderful day of cannabis school. We're going to get into this when there's little bit more cerebral if you will. What's our topic today. We're going to talk about. Cbd cd at cannabis dial cannabis dial. Yeah absolutely you know what is cannabis. Dial so it's one of the many active ingredients or compounds and cannabis. It's often derived or found in the hemp form of cannabis and can easily be found in. Sorry snoop dogg. And dr dre you can find it in the seeds stems and sticks on this one mayoclinic surprisingly claims that it comes from a marijuana plant and web. Md says it comes from cannabis. Sativa do you can find it in there. Okay so would you say that. Cbd is not in thc base plants. Usually it's just a minimal byproduct of the creation of cannabis plant. Okay but more common. The andy hemp. They're grown. That's where your cbd is coming from. If you are buying quality cd how so that makes sense so like when we see in dispensaries you'll see vape pens two two one four two one ten to one day vary over there. So you're telling me that. They put the cd in to whatever type of product that you may be consuming to kind of counterbalance things that just depends on the product. Some strains have higher cannabinoid more cbd in their strain sometimes a strain itself would be a ten to one because of the wits brad or grown and by in tinctures or other things it can be more commonly known to introduce cb two. Let's back up a little bit. I'm gonna go right into. Why would anybody want to use. Cbd well just like thc cbd has cannabinoid receptors in your body so those receptors our founding your brain and your central nervous systems and the responsible for a lot of physiological processes including your mood memory. Appetite helps epileptic seizures nerve pain joint pain arthritis inflammation muscle soreness insomnia depression other mental health. Disorders some cancers and there's been some also studies on peripheral neuropathy can be reduced with some cds. You bring up studies you've got both sides and it's really hard to say there. It's fake news or real. I would just say that it's more anecdotal at this moment because there hasn't been a really long term with huge batches of individuals. Oh yeah this doesn't help for everyone. Necessarily there's studies done by harvard. University studies done by united kingdom. One efron italy. There's been a lot of them that are done on colon. Cancer on ulcerative colitis some specific plaque that builds up in the brain that causes dementia and alzheimer's and that you use certain ham or cbd products can reduce or remove that plaque that genuine. The is more prone dimension alzheimer's so let's jump into that zone see equal. Because i've seen these gumy's you can buy literally going into any type gas station. I mean this is readily available at at head shop smoke shops but now i'm starting to see it within health food stores but are all of them created equal because the market of cbd is new. There's no fda regulation on it right now it's just sold and marketed like an essential oil. So it doesn't really have many regulations for that to ensure quality or that even what it says on the label is the percentages of cannabinoid turbines. The product in there even is derived from hemp. Even his cd. So you do need to make sure that you get it from a reputable source so make sure you can see what they used to grow if there's pesticides as well as these specific breakdown of cannabinoid terrapins if they have all their research attached that you can see from a lab that's fantastic. There's plenty of places that you can get up. I'd also add to that that when you're researching. Cd related products. Don't just read amazon reviews and saying that's the best one they're they're not all made the same cause some people will take him in. It's definitely like a placebo effect. Exactly because some of them aren't even cbd. Either make sure that you do get her from a reputable source. Also if you get single molecule. Cbd which is the fda approved epa dialects for seizures and driver syndrome and lennox guest out syndrome. So that's been like almost like a sauce. It's been reduced down to being very very potent. No it's not even a sauce. That's the fda approved hill that is just a chemical compound created of just cbd is synthetic cbd. Yeah synthesized one. They have that but single molecule just plain. Cbd is not as beneficial is if you could get full spectrum which is a lot more cannabinoid. Usually that has teach see in it as well but just the below point three percent. That's something that many should be aware of. Depending upon wherever you're employed some places still test for cannabis you just brought it up. I mean is there. Thc in cbd and full spectrum. There is in broad spectrum. Usually there's none of those mute so it's just what they're labeled as when their sole full spectrum usually include cb g. c. b. n. Little bit of thc some other flavonoids europeans and cannabinoid. That are just minor. They don't make you high on it's not gonna make you a man large doses. You might feel something. I've heard people saying that they'll take like a cd. Gummy and then. They'll just feel loopy. But that's more of like a benadryl. Feel i would say and a lot of it is kind of a medicated feeling for sun because if you have with anxiety pains depression constantly and you take full spectrum. Gummy and depressions. You're gonna feel different. You're gonna psychologically feel different if you have pain in your taking this and then you feel different. I've heard almost disassociated at times on very high dose of cd but usually that is more of the full spectrum but it was something to keep in mind as we always say low and slow. Even the cbd because with cannabis it has an effect that in high doses can have the opposite. Facts of low doses. Not with everyone. Not all the time but it can in some instances do if you are taking it and it's fine and low doses neighbor. Don't jump to your house if you're doing it loan. It's working great. Stay there low slow definitely. Let's do or three that we typically go into right so in the flower form. Cain you get. Cd flower you can. I've actually gone to. Cd hemp dot direct and found great products through there. They have their lab test results for percentages. Everything on there products are not full of seeds and sticks. They are a lot better. Flower can always find flower. Some shops depending on where you live cell. Cbd flowers well is that rare It was around for a while. I saw everywhere at all. The smoke shops vape shops. And then it just disappeared. Something changed in legislature and oth- flower spirit. That's weird are you able to order. Cbd online inhabit sent to your house like in the flower for. Yeah you can. Have it mailed to anywhere in the fifty states. I so weird because the legislature. Maybe it's says local areas..

The History of Cannabis
"Turns out we have geology to thank for cannabis. At least for cannabis's psychoactive properties. The ancient ancestors of the cannabis plant started growing tens of millions of years ago around. What is now central asia like pakistan northern india nepal. And then something dramatic happened the entire subcontinent. That is now. India drifted north crashed into asia. The crumple zone is what we now call. The himalayas and the cannabis plants that were growing in that zone. Got really really high and the ones that were stuck down low the plains near the himalayas. Well they didn't get quite so high is difference is both topographical and literal the cannabis. The grew in the mountainous region started producing thc. Which or the uninitiated is the chemical in cannabis. That gets you high. We don't know for certain. Why the plant produces it. It appears serve kind of sunscreen. Chris duval is a professor at the university of new mexico and author of two books on the topic. The african roots of marijuana and cannabis kris told us that the cannabis that stayed down low and temperate plains. Those plans did not produce. thc they became. What we know is hemp source of cloth rope and disgusting. Health foods cannabis grew really easily and a lot of different environments especially ones. We disturbed to build settlements. It was literally a weed. That's why we call it weed. And so there was probably a lot of cannabis just growing in central and east asia both the high mountainous regions and the low parts and so a really longtime ago as long as maybe twelve thousand years ago people figured out ways to use it. It appears for both populations. Initially people used it for the seeds which are edible You know you can buy them in. Eat them nowadays. Emcees are often founded natural food stores. Today they're full of wonderful nutrients but they taste terrible. And before you all right in and tell me i'm wrong. not only to. Cynthia agree with me. The historical record does to kris told us that in china hemp seeds were at one point considered a staple food but it was kind of slowly replaced as people in that region in china. You know kind of domesticated and started using other plants more calmly so types of militans organ kind of displaced at

It the chemical reactions, this isn't a caffeine podcast but the chemical reactions with caffeine receptor in your brain who you able to not feel tired. It's not necessarily making you feel more awake. It just dampens, the feeling of being tired as with cannabis it, dampens the feeling of feeling anxious or depressed, or pain. Yeah, Litany of different things. Yeah. So when that tolerance break is introduced, it's to be able to increase the sensitivity of the use of your cannabis home. And so, Brandon had said something earlier that. I think we should go a little into is a tolerance break, doesn't necessarily mean you have to stop, you can lessen. But how long do you think that would cause a little bit of frustration for somebody who has pain? I mean, I know you've done tolerance brakes. I know you said you feel grumpy on tolerance breaks, but at the same time, do you still feel the same page? Oh I feel more pain during my tolerance breaks. Yeah, just because I'm not managing it the same as I used to. So during that time I increase may be trying stretch, more do things that will help with it because it is I know that going into it, I'm going to hurt more but that's another thing, if you are a common years there is there are side effects. Sometimes of taking a tolerance break, you're going to feel irritable decreased appetite depressed, move restlessness anxiety, insomnia, some of the wildest dreams, you will ever have come when you're taking a tolerance break with that though. The side effects are not usually disruptive that are often extreme they're just obnoxious you know they're manageable yeah definitely manageable. It's not something that's going to put you into a tailspin of a feeling really frustrated, very angry wage. A tolerance break again, is for those who have been using for quite a while or using extremely large doses for a long period. When would you think? And again, it's different for everybody Brandon. But when do you think an individual should start considering to go on a tolerance break? Yeah, actually read something last night on that it's a good practice to do 48 hours every 30 days. Okay so once every 30 days take two days off which you know, if you're using medicinally that's what church sometimes. But find other ways to try and manage whatever ailment to even lower the dosing you're using. Cuz I know that if I take even a two-day tolerance break or crack somehow manage, my pain until the evening time that smaller dose will hit me so much harder. Even in just a partaking later in the day versus first thing. I think that's extremely important for people to keep in mind. That tolerance, brakes are necessary for those of us that had been using habitually for years and have never taken a break. And there are those of us that are at, that point, consider it considered thinking about look, I'm probably using way too much off. I'm probably having to smoke a lot more, eat a lot more consuming any, which way, I like lot more, I've seen that with people who use vape pens tend to walk through the whole pain, whether it's a half gram which is five hundred milligrams or full pain, which is a thousand milligrams. It sounds like a lot but I've seen people go through those in just a few days. You calling me back immediately, you bet. But that's the thing. It's even though it's in high concentrate, your tolerance is so high. Yeah, with different types because I've seen that with you, when dead When you use flour and then when you go into vaping, which is an oil extract and there's so many different ways that it's extracted from the plant that I feel that it's just me, hit you as hard, you know, Brandon and I frequent playing video games at least once a week online together. And if I have a pen, I'll be puffing on that the whole time. Yeah, I feel like pens song hit a certain level of high for you pain, management, whatever it is you're doing. There's nothing past that I've ever gotten from a pen. Yeah, it definitely caps off like this is as high as you can get. Yeah. Right. It's like a top rung of the ladder. You can't go any further. You can keep trying but it's not going to get past it, very strange. But it said those points you need to be thinking about. Maybe I need to take a break, your wallet. I appreciate it. Yeah, definitely off. While it will appreciate it for sure but I think about that, think about it. Where you're getting into it. This this episode is more for people who have been using for a while, but it's also for those who are getting into cash to keep in their mind, be a responsible cannabis a consumer, don't be that stereotypical Stoner. And if you're Stoner, listen to this, I'm calling you out, bro. Calling you out, girl calling you out whatever. Gender you are wild unicorn dancing on the hilltop, totally insert whatever time. We don't, we don't discriminate against a, but we love everybody off when you're talking about cannabis. We're all the same and you really need to keep that in mind. Make sure that you're being responsible, make sure you're being safe with this use. But also make sure you're getting the most out of it off. Yeah. And for building a tolerance, if you're trying to do it for a medicinal purpose, it's great to take an edible, your tincture, whatever it is a little bit before bed. The highest parts that you would feel you're actually asleep for and then you won't actually feel that extreme first couple of times of having your body introduced to it. That's a good recommendation right there. You don't want to go back from a tolerance straight into using because you are okay with wherever you were at. Before you take the same thing over. There may be macro made into the couch and watch. It goes yeah, low and slow people. Low and slow. Thanks for tuning in this Tuesday. Yeah, thanks so much guys. Will catch you next week off?
"cannabis" Discussed on Cannabis School
"All right, welcome back to R. Taco, Tuesday, talk with cannabis school. Thanks for joining us again. Yeah, I hope you guys been having a really good week this week. We're going to talk about something that's really important. If you're a medical user, you're a consistent user or you're even a new user. Yeah, this is extremely important. It's a difficult topic to talk about with off or it's a difficult topic to bring up with yourself cuz it ultimately comes down to yourself. And that is tolerance, brakes tolerance, breaks, big Hardware tolerance, breaks, Big T. So the basic of it, and we're going to go deeper and into the the reasons why you should basically it's stopping the use of cannabis for a certain period of time. What's the shortest time that you think for yourself Brandon that you've done tolerance breaks for? Tolerance, breaks can even on the simplest terms, just be lessening the amount of cannabis that you do use or lessen. The amount of time that you partake. Just depending on, if you're a medicinal they user, or a habitual user might be another term for, what do you mean by that? Like, am I using it morning noon and night? Would that be a heavy user? Yeah, if you're using a constantly your life, a heavy user, some people medicinally that's just what you do for pain or whatever your ailment is that you're utilizing that for so somebody who has anxiety and it's taking a little bit throughout the day. Would they still be considered a heavy user? No, no, I would not consider them a heavy user. So what would be a heavy user in in your, in your words, what is a heavy user like let's just call it out Brandon, I am a heavy user, you're a heavy user of a bit. I use my dog. I wake up hurting, I go to bed hurting, I heard all day long. I also use it for stress anxiety, depressed moments, but I use it to be able to engage in an act and move function, like normal. So I have a different tolerance but that the the tolerance break. Basically the, the the shortest one I've done is 48 hours which for using medicinally is tough because that's 48 Hours of Pain, still use and maintain high doses of CBT like I do normally. But without the page, see you can you take us in order? What's the pain that you're feeling? That is so constant that you use cannabis medicinally, I have a cracked Disc Off. Midway up my spine, from a motorcycle, accident years ago, and it's been not bad enough to operate according to doctors, but the same thing I am P. Enough said I'll just have chronic pain. Okay. So it's something that just is constant with me all the time regardless of what I do. So the Cannabis used to use a daily per take of, does it directly affect the pain? Does it go straight to your head and it just kind of helps, you forget? That depends on the strain. Hm specific strains him a lot deeper into the pain. Some do more numbing of the head that I don't notice it as much just depends. I always like to introduce hide choice of CBD as well, because that does help as well. For my pain talking about CBD. And I've read about several different individuals, it varies an time duration of a tolerance break. Some people do $40 some people do 72 hours. Some people do a full week, some people do twenty-eight to thirty eight thirty days. I've seen other people taking a full year off and coming back. To it with the intention of coming back to it. And that's pretty intense. I would only think that those would be those habitual users who are morning noon and night until Real Pain. Maybe a little bit of anxiety, things like that, but they're going so strong and they realize that it's not working the same way. So I want to talk about that for a little bit. Brandon, the reason for a tolerance break is because you realize that you're addicted or is it because it doesn't work as well. It depends on the person. Some people like you and I have talked about even the feeling of not feeling like you are dependent on anything, whether it's coffee or cannabis or anything, not feeling the need to feel like you are dependent. And I think some of that tolerance break even we talked about is from them, the feeling of not wanting to feel like hey I'm dependent on this Earth. And I can do it without, I can do it without it. I do when I take the tolerance break, I just heard more. So taking a tolerance break starting at 48 Hours of noticed that the there's receptors in your brain and body that the THC stick to. And as you use cannabis more frequently, those start wage increase. So you don't feel as high, you don't get the same feelings anymore, your body doesn't want to be high. You want to be high. Yeah, it makes it easier sometimes to make it through life, suck. Your body doesn't want you to. So taking that tolerance break starting at 48 hours, they notice that those receptors those things in your body and your brain, start to come back wage. So, at 30 days, Twenty Eight Days, that's a full reset. Typically, they'll notice those are all fully back so a year. Yeah, it's not necessary but it might be good for dog. Someone's mental Clarity, whatever they want to do on their own personal side. But anything past twenty eight thirty days, you're going to be a full reset of your receptors and that down for you have it, you'd feel in using no no, don't jump back into the same dose as you were before either because you will get so high so fast song. I like how you just said the words taking time to be able to give you a reset and that reset is so important when you think about other things that are consistently used every day. So we talked about actually I've been going through some real difficult time with caffeine. I did not realize I was consuming it as much as I was. Where I would have a few cups of coffee in the morning or of 30 cups of coffee in the morning. And then later on, I, you know, be at some type of networking event for business and I would have a Diet Coke or two. And then what was that? After that one, I had my birth Of a rockstar 240. Milligrams was delicious, it was mango guava, love the mango, but it hit me so hard later on that evening and it made me feel so incredibly anxious. I started to think about that especially when we were talking about tolerance breaks is that when you consume something so it has a specific purpose for it. What you're young, you're aiming for that when you get to the point where you're taking so much that you get anxious, and I have seen that with cannabis, I've seen it with other people using cannabis where it could have met and even the Indica strain, where they're taking it and it's a lower feeling in the body, more calm and feeling, but it induces this anxiety. Like they had caffeine. Yeah, I used to have a buddy that off for the first while when he was smoking there was times that he would have panic attacks. Anxiety attacks super interesting. Because now he uses a lot more, but he

Sioux Tribe Opening First Legal Marijuana Business in South Dakota
"Legal marijuana sales are happening in south dakota's borders for the first time it's only for medical purposes and there's only one place to shop. A store operated by a tribe theft tupper of south dakota public broadcasting reports the flender santee sioux tribe is the first seller of medical marijuana in the state. Native nations cannabis is a tribal business. That began sales this month of voter-approved law legalizing medical marijuana took effect july. First alex cheddar is one of the first to customers. He drove to flounder forty miles from his home. In sioux falls. I came here to get some medical marijuana. I exercise my rights. Nobody else in the state is selling medical marijuana. That's because the state health department is not ready to start issuing medical marijuana cards yet. The tribe has its own sovereign. Government doesn't have to wait for the state so it prepared to open immediately. When the new law took effect era cagan is the ceo of native nations cannabis. We've had more patients than expected. I think it's been a huge success for not only the trial. But also the state of south dakota I'm glad that we're open. The tribe requires patients to have a valid doctor's recommendation. Hagan says the tribe also accepts licenses from other states that have medical marijuana programs. We've been seeing a wide variety Tribal members non tribal members age group. Non-tribal dispensaries can sell medical marijuana. Once the state health department starts issuing licenses medical cards the department will announce a process for that by the end of october for national native news. I'm seth tupper.
"cannabis" Discussed on Cannabis School
"So let's, let's talk about some of the negative effects that you could feel from Cannabis and possible ways to be able to counterbalance that. So, starting with inhalation smoke, too much of that, your throat is going to get raw. You're going to start coughing right. Drink some water, always write off some water as far as science and, and studies done on it. And again, it's very limited, but even the studies in going over there with people who smoke cannabis regularly, they don't have a dog. Increased risks of heart problems, lung problems, cancer, anything like that. There hasn't been enough scientific data retrieved at the same time though, it's far less than any type of tobacco smoke long-term effects of cannabis smoking. Specifically, on the lungs is not long-lasting. It can have bronchitis sort of affects in you know when you're using regular life, if your choice of use has to smell but in cannabis use when you decrease or stop smoking that has been seen to go away. So it's not lasting like you said with tobacco so smoking that's you're going to get the car. Yeah. So with cannabis use our THC, the most common ones are going to be. If you're smoking, your throat is going to be more irritated, right? Let's be real, your lighting, anything. Inquiring it into her lungs. Not going to be the best of your lungs, right. Even the baking. You're still going to get a bit of a cough. You're still going to feel that it's not as strong and you don't know. Same carcinogens but your heating something. Well I'm just talking about like the the surface-level effects of it, right? I mean definitely you're going to get that uplifted feeling but at the same time by smoking or inhaling it, you're getting the desired effect right away but also knowing that taking too much. So you gotta he's into this. If you continue taking it over there you can feel anxiety. Paranoia. Yeah. Paranoia and those are by far the biggest ones and one thing I will state as well. It is very common to fill your heart rate down. If you were ingesting more, your heart will pump faster and because you are so much more aware, you will feel it more. Yeah. And it feels like your heart's pounding out of your chest but if you sit there you focus on your breathing a genuinely slows down. Yeah, I felt those effects one way that and I don't know if this is across the board but Brandon had introduced it to me where if you start getting that a fact song. Lehigh. It's a really good practice to having a high-grade. Hi, do CBD, teacher, and a teacher's a dropper and by being able to have a full dropper. I had one that instance where my anxiety was through the roof. I had taking way too much. I had inhaled way too much THC and by taking a full dropper within, about 20 to 30 wage, it's a lot of my feelings. Have subsided, not taking away my uplifted feeling, but it brought my anxiety down. My, my high was much lower and much more manageable, so I didn't freak out. So I don't think it's across the board branding. You introduced to me and being able to use CBD with THC products, is that kind of the census that you have been able to see other people, definitely with your endocannabinoid system, when you have THC, attaching to those, most commonly CB1 receptors introducing CBD into that will lessen the amount of THC effects. It has on you. So 9 to 1 a.m. Is a fantastic ratio. So 9 milligrams of CBD to one milligram of THC, should counterbalance that affects the for it. So if you're not looking for that high or you're trying to bring down that high to great way to help manage that level, and I would say, just on personal accounts, the, in the teacher form, it's by far the best. And, you know, you could definitely do an edible wage. I don't feel that you would be able to get the right amount of CBD into your system. And again, high grade when it's a high-grade, this shouldn't, I don't want to just knock down anybody to knock them down, but if you're buying this from a convenience store, it's not going to be high grade CBD. There's everyone in their dog selling CBD at this point, so just make sure it's from a reputable Source. Make sure it's a good quality because there is a lot of CBD out there. Now that 80% of it is not even hemp or rise in that that do your research, okay? So edibles Can fall in the same category with the tinctures. My favorite way to do it is actually just get those clear, vegetable capsules and I just put droppers into a capsule and then just the capsule. Want the flavor. It's a really simple. Easy. Way to do it. Still get the same dose. Yeah, absolutely. I like that. When when you have a CBD when we're talking about THC Edibles, again, that's we've already talked about the dangers of that. The danger is they are not candy that you can just eat one after another. You need to look at it. The same way if you had medicine in a pill form you don't take off a bottle. So don't eat the whole damn thing. Take one just like you would with it. Lortab you know, if your doctor is prescribing, heavy pain pills, you're not popping three or four wage, unless you got a problem ever. So briefly touching on mental health. So, when speaking about schizophrenia, I can consider myself closer to being an expert on that one being able to work with in New Jersey, Your mental health field for ten years knowing that schizophrenia shows up later on in life, it's very sparse as far as the information has been received and gathered, but they have found many different cases that THC can make it worse. And I can see that with the paranoia that can come from using THC, so that's something to keep in mind. But on the positive side, that depression anxiety has been helped tremendously with the use of cannabis, that has had some tremendous affects both you and I have had that. Yeah, same with pain management PTSD, whole lot of other things. So if you have a feeling that this might be for you or questions to check with your doctor, do some research on your own, see if it's a good fit know, and that's a great way to end. This is you need to log into your body, how you're being able to take these certain type of medicinal products, whether it's to be able to help with some type of pain, whether that's mental or physical, of course. And as always wage, For joining us and tune in next week..
"cannabis" Discussed on Cannabis School
"There with a thermometer with your lighter, going to cater to hit 220° and then like that. But you're doing chemistry pretty much in a very short form in the most simplistic form. It's chemistry talking about cannabis cigarettes. What are some of the different names that they want? Just commonly just rolled in tobacco leaf? A joint is obviously rolled more in hemp leaves a paper, a spliff is a blunt, but usually wrapped with half tobacco leaf in there as well. So it gives you a little bit more of a nicotine buzz. Of course, there's all sorts of different types of joint wraps to Thursday is the Palm refunds, which role slower versus the clear. Translucent papers, you have the translucent papers and of course, all the flavor Juicy J wraps. See. There's a lot. There's a lot one in talks about wage. With the Cannabis cigarette, I'm generalizing a cannabis cigarette because it's I mean it looks like a cigarette, right? Or it looks like a cigar. That's where you talk about with a blunt made with like a cigar box, lid, open and then re-rolled knowing that when you burn it, it gives you the desired result. What's another way that I'm able to take cannabis in a THC for home of the best ways, specifically is going to be a vaporizer, anything, you can control that temperature specifically is going to give you a lot more calculated effect. So when you're talking about vapormax, are you talking about vape pens? So not the little vape pens that are used with extracts, but more of the dry herb vaporizer the volcano or the handheld packs three. These are both were very good, dry herb vaporizers. So it just heats up that flower to the perfect temperature puts that into a bag or you just pull it off of the pain, much simpler process, a lot different feeling There. And then you would if you were to actually smoke the flower, you know, we went from burning at so it's going to be harsh, it's going to be harsh and the system. It's going to get into their quickly. That's why smoking is by far the most preferred not to be able to use cannabis because it's instantaneous like literally seconds after it's. And then when you go to the packs in the vaporized form, it's not as harsh on the system. Would you say to definitely much smoother? Feeling to inhale that dry herb vaporizer than it ever is to smoke? Very cool. So let's take one step down from there. Let's take one of the most readily available. Easiest to use is a vaporized oil, that goes directly into your system. Definitely, one of the easiest ways because it has less spell, even the dry herb vaporizers, you're still going to get the smell of baking flour. So it's harder to put into a house or an apartment. If you live in an area that more people can smell it, you don't want to have that. A vape pens going to be a much easier just to age. Way to use it. But one thing to look out for with great friends because they are concentrates, the percentage of THC is higher. Yeah. Just like with alcohol, the percentage calculates, the amount you should be taking now, you wouldn't drink Vodka like you would be R. I wouldn't drink Vodka. Like I would be here, maybe some of you too, but you know, it's that percentage. If it's a higher percentage, you're obviously going to take less, so be aware THC. Percentage is range from 7:10 % all the way up to 99% on extra. You can see some flowers are tested. They can get all the way up to like 20 + 20 + percentage of Italian. See, I have had flour in the low 30s. Yeah. And really high percentage for flour, but, but that's something strange too, is that when you talk about flower, that's like high percentage, you can see THC vape juice or our oil concentrates, the percentage is so high. Like, I've seen it all the way up in to 9 a.m. These like high nineties and that's something definitely to be more concerned about. You don't need as much and we had talked about that, just right before we got on that, when using a vape pen, some things to look into is the higher percentages means that you can't just keep puffing away, you will get more of the uplifted effect, like you get more uplifted, but it could go into a very bad state. So we've gone from Vape. So what's one more step down past that I take probably tinctures? Okay. So teachers are the droppers a.m. and same thing there, you know, watch your percentage, watch your dose in each dropper because that percentage, if you don't want to feel uplifted or you for try and keep your THC milligrams, below them to keep a very minimal introduced CBD into that with the teacher and my going to feel the exact same effects. You're going to hold it under your tongue, you're going to digest it into your stomach and then of course that process Okay processes into a different chemical so you have a different feeling it's similar but it is slightly different teachers can take 45 minutes or longer? So when you taking sure it's never going to be an instantaneous feeling. Slightly different. Yeah and it takes time. So does it turn into anything else? I know I've listened and I've read several different things with THC. Are they called Delta nine? So Delta, nine THC, that is THC as what we associate as THC is just the Delta 9 chemical compound. Yes. So when when it process through your body, it takes its time. It has to go through your stomach and then it goes into your digestive system and then it's totally makes its way into your liver. And then it works its way all the way back up to your brain. So almost has to go through, just like if you took a pill because not all pills are going to kick in like right away. Some of them are designed such as a lot of opioids people take, it's designed to be fast song. Thing. But with cannabis, I don't, I don't feel that same. I think it takes some of them are sooner, some of them are later. I have had some edibles that are twenty-five thirty minutes before. I'm feeling, there are all sorts of other Edibles that I've had that. Take three hours for me to fill it, right, but be aware of that. It can take up to three hours for you to feel something especially your first time and that's perfect segue when you talked about Edibles Edibles are manufactured, either home made or produced by a company where they're in a gummy form. They look like fruit snacks or chocolates or put into like I've even seen him in a breath spray and and then this I'm glad we're brought at this point at the end of talking about different ways to be able take THC. Now with Edibles, this might be a personal opinion but I believe that this by far is the most. You should be the most cautious when using Edibles, there's very little research done wrong. On the Edibles. People say that it's way stronger than if you inhale it probably by far, the easiest way to get into trouble with it. Definitely, as we've found from friends and people, we know who have had these type of experiences, Edibles are the easiest way to have a bad experience. Yeah, I'm just way too much too fast. Because Edibles don't hit instantly wage because they can take 3 hours. So, don't eat one out a bowl. And think that spend an hour? It's been two hours. I don't feel anything. And then take another one and take another one. My first introduction to Edibles was the same way. I've been using cannabis for years, had no idea, took one that'll waited an hour and half didn't feel anything eight, two more another home, an hour and half long after that. All three of them kick in. Once that was the highest moment I'd ever had, was not anticipating that know your dose. Yeah. I heard a story about I was in college. Going to where a man had gone to his cabin, his grandson was there, and had made a whole chocolate bar like and let's imagine like Hershey's chocolate bar, not like the king size, just a good song has one and he said, hey Grandpa, I left you something in the fridge and his grandpa a the entire bar and ended up in the emergency room with cardiac problems. It could cause some issues definitely. But it the anxiety goes through the roof and I think this is a great way to be getting closer towards the end..
"cannabis" Discussed on Cannabis School
"Even use the derogatory term as far as high elevated. Whatever you want, whatever your preferred nomenclature is going to be for an ocular or words to get really simple with that. I read something this morning and a book about it, the lady just called it. The high chemical d, h c, it's easy to remember, that is going to make you feel high, all right. These are THC. A is tetrahydrocannabinol acid, THC is just a shorter, abbreviated version of it, but THC, a Brandon, what is that? That's the form of THC? That's commonly found in flower on the female flowers before it's heated up, right? And, and when you talk about female took the wrong, clear? With our audience, the female plant of cannabis, and two slightly take a backstep there. When we talk about cannabis cannabis as part of the hemp family, there's several different derivatives to come from these plants. You can go sativa it, can be an indica or hemp ruderalis. But with THC, we're going to be talking about today. We're talking about, not only way the physiological effects were also going to be talking about the psychological effects that it has with it, but there are several different things that may be a misnomer for many people THC. A is the basic form of that one that is not activated and has branded said, it's the female plant that gives us the desired effect over there. The male plant actually wage doesn't have any of that. Is that right? Very minimal. You can find some THC by Trace Amounts, yeah. But it's more commonly found on the female plant, so females rule. Yeah. So young females rule the world and twenty Twenty-One and in cannabis. Yeah, absolutely. That's awesome right? We'd it's all good female presence. So my life is a lot better with it now. Your Life's a lot better. Yeah, I've no complaints. Yeah so THC every mammal has. What's known as an endocannabinoid system, this thow cannabinoid system is found through our brain, through our immune system, to our respiratory system. It is found throughout our entire body. Now, in the brain, there's commonly found CB-1 off. Receptors and then the rest of the body are more company. Found CB2 receptors. Now the THC attaches more to the ones in your brain when you introduce other wage of annoyed. Like CBD with that is more, commonly found too attached to the CB to receptors throughout your body, your immune system and talking to them. When, when we're talking about the brain, receiving a THC, and how it starts to be able to act where they say, it's the psychoactive effect, which to be very clear, psychoactive means that your mind off, it has an altered state. Many people feel that when you say psychoactive that they think you're going to make you psycho, I would say some of the negative misrepresentations is dead. I've actually heard people saying, oh, man, I was having these crazy visions of things, and I was seeing things coming out of the wall. I am heard of having more wage The psychological effect over there, where they're actually having hallucinations on it, but that it does go deeper into the more of the psychological background of that person. We can talk about the negative effects towards the end of this. That's where we want to kind of go away from this. When we talk about the psychoactive effects, these are the desired results that we're trying to feel being able to feel high, not necessary to hallucinogenic right off and calm. Most people don't ever experience the who's energetic properties. That some people say cannabis can have right? And if you've, if you've taken medication such as Valium, I have had Valium for going in for an operation or when I used to have really bad panic attacks, I would take that one. I would say the Cannabis feeling that I get is very similar to that the very calming state, but not in a way where I feel so medicated that I couldn't get up and go do things the perfect description that I read this morning. About what the feeling of THC or a high is, is coming out of a perfect yoga class or a perfect meditation that peaceful calm relaxed, euphoric state. Do you feel you can accomplish that through meditation through breathing techniques through yoga through an amazing cup of coffee in the morning? Yeah, you know, so that's not to have a loose like Properties or to be melted into the couch to fill that uplifted. Euphoric feeling of peaceful centered balance reconnected. I like what you just said there? When when we talk about being uplifted, I think that's probably by far and maybe our audience can agree with that, is the feeling of uplifted by far, kind of dog, gets rid of the negative media influence. You could say, or misrepresentation that many have of cannabis, is the feeling of being uplifted. I don't even like, wage. Her medicated because Medicaid, it sounds like I took a ton of pain pills and I'm just laying there drooling. Yeah, I like to uplift, it looks like my background. I mean, I worked in in mental health for ten years and when you would see somebody medicated, they would have like this well, Dixie cup like full of pills, and it just hurts me to see them taking it, but there's certain psychological things that are going on. That those medications are trying to help with it's not an exact science. There's a good guess. Same with cannabis you know introducing the different strains or terpenes or cannabinoids into your body, it's an experiment, it's finding which do switch strain, which feeling is going to help you because not everyone's cup kind of annoyed system. Handles cannabis the same. That's a great segue going right into thca, which is the raw plant. Nothing has happened to it. Pick it right off the flower. You could birth. Eat the leaves, you could eat the stem, you could eat the route, you're going to get a lot of that into your body, but the psychoactive effects that they talk about with how cannabis is activated, isn't there yet? There's a certain temperature and we'll talk about right now where the common use of of cannabis is through, smoking it, through inhalation. And by far, the easiest way to be able to do it is to burn it. Whether it's rolled up into a cigarette or form, whether it's put into a pipe, those are the most common ones, but what's the temperature that it needs to hit Brandon? You know, quite a bit more about that. So it's approximately two hundred and twenty degrees. Okay,.

I didn't know there was such a thing. But i was kind of chuckling reading that section of the book and i'm curious what were the four twenty games those kind of have to do with your initial inspiration for writing this thing. Yeah by that time. I had been using cannabis for a long time personally and had been using it As a runner for maybe about a year at that point and as journalists there been so much to cover in terms of events or news and so for the poor twenty games when it was touring around america in came through boulder was really just another assignment That i had you know. I was curious about other people doing the same thing that high abeille believed i discovered and a lot of people had that story like they thought they were the only ones who like to get high and workout but in terms of a games as competition for twenty games isn't really like it. It's not comparable to the olympics or or any sort of organized sport. It's it's it's more just a An exhibition of of kind There was a four point. Two mile fund. Run run the boulder reservoir when i went there My understanding is that they have bigger events out in la that are a little more competitive But it was there that i met a recall into a wound up being one of the central characters of my book. He's a A very accomplished ultra marathon runner here in colorado and he was kind of one of the celebrity athletes at the port. Twenty games had come out and do the fun run and talk to people and then after the run there were a lot of tables with all of these different products. Couldn't sell any thc products. But there were a lot of non psychoactive products. They're in really. It was my first entry point to this side of the industry Because the cannabis industry have been around for a few years by that point in their been loads of different types of events but a lot of them were kind of more of the high times stone or culture type events not like exercising athletes. You mean right. Even though that's culture existed at and i don't think it was quite as cohesive because of that fact that a lot of people didn't know that the others who are doing the same thing that they were But when i was out there. I met a lot of people who are like. Yeah i like to smoke a joint and then go lift weights. Or i like to take an edible and then go run a trail so that was one of the early moments where i was like may be more than just a quirky thing that i do or that a handful of people do it may be something. That's actually quite popular and profoundly under
Sha'Carri Richardson out of Tokyo Olympics Due to One-Month Cannabis Use Ban
"Let's talk about your car richardson. Because you're kind of a weed expert. Sam i don't under- i call it cannabis by the way. It's more formal way to that. I don't understand this story. Can anyone even make the argument. Now i what you think but let's play pretend we're in debate class. Could either of us. Even make the argument. That cannabis is performance enhancing. I could not. I cannot make that argument does not enhance my performance at anything is ever heard of it. Enhancing anyone's performance at anything. Okay so i'll tell you. I'll tell you a story you tell me if this is true. Okay so when. I was at the olympics in salt. Lake in two thousand two. There is a canadian snowboarder. Who took the bronze-medal and he then tested positive for cannabis. The argument for that being performance enhancing is that. When you're on a snowboard you really wanna sorta sink into the snowboard and almost become one with the snowboard and the idea is that that's somehow an advantage. Okay that makes sense. Maybe but again not renting. I'll tell you that car richardson's doing the opposite. She's trying to run as fast as humanly puzzle. This i can't start it. This is enough. This is not steroids. She's not even taking sudafed which a lot of hockey players take to her themselves up. You know. I could see that if she was taking some type of a enhancer to get your heart rate going faster or in that i have never read a compelling argument that marijuana is performance enhancing no and what makes listen to this. Thirty four states in the us have legalized marijuana. Forty eight countries. Almost all which participate in the olympics have done the same thing. What are we doing here.

"Level of living from pain. I went from not being able to function to now. I can do everything normal. Dad's it is absolutely huge. We another thing that this podcast is not about. It's not about entrepreneurship within the cannabis industry you'll hear episodes on here. Were interviewing major brands of cannabis. It'd be hearing from experts within the cannabis world but in no way shape or form or we there to be able to promote that one in a way of being able to make money off of it. Or how do you get started in it. Because the cannabis industry is quite young in the commercial space Were at the very beginning of seeing this grow and we want to be a part of that on a sense of being able to make it more normal. I mean if you can buy budweiser or cores right now. And if your course fan. I'm sorry But irregardless it should be treated the same if alcohol is readily available where we can advertise and talk about it freely and openly where it's in your grocery stores it's in. Your convenience stores cannabis is not as harmful to the body. And actually i would say it lessens a lot of crime. He doesn't see a lot of people high on cannabis going out and robbing stores and stealing cars. And i'm sure there are few shooting people not shooting though. Definitely not you know. It's a lot more mellow if they do get extremely high. They're more likely to fall asleep. Or sit on the couch and stare at the wall for an hour versus causing a fight or a ruckus so exactly exactly from what we talked about. We feel better about having some type of infotainment that we provide here on on canvas school and that we are reaching out to those that can feel a little bit more comfortable when they visit a dispensary when they ask their legislature About things over their business nearly always have to be about medicinal. I'm big on that one as well. There's a lot of medicinal properties. There's a lot of other properties that are really good. This also is not a podcast about making sure that you can use hemp to start making t-shirts or building homes. Even those are great. Yeah that's not our guest. Yes not a focus with that.

"About everything pertaining to canvas for bait flowered edibles strains and everything in between. Let's talk about why we we're doing this when we had a conversation earlier on the phone Before we got together today talked about. We actually recorded. We thought we recorded somewhere. Yeah i don't know where it is but it that we recorded an episode that fail to talk about why we started and it felt really prescribed. And i'm kind of glad that it didn't get into like we don't know where that is our conversation today. I think is what we need to be able to talk about the understanding about the cannabis world today the yard in and you know i come from a different background than you do. And we agree upon a certain amount of different topics. And i think that's some of the biggest poll of why right so i'm going to actually put you on the spot and share with Brandon is so into cannabis community that He invested into something that turned out to be a big boss. Yeah it was a wet fart. That's what it was to be nice. Yeah yeah you know. It was uncomfortable and the great thing about it is. You invited me into that wet fart. And i was like sure you're welcome. Yeah i loved it because well why not because we learned a lot from it and and so some of the things that we saw you know. We'll start with one thing over there. The the misrepresentation of cannabis. Oh i mean everywhere. The presentation of cannabis at this moment is stone stonier. It is the typical cheech. And chong partly on your hat on your shirt. We see it from a different light. There's a whole different perspective of canvas. How many business owners do you know. Personally that utilize cannabis. Oh yeah. i know lots of entrepreneurs different people. I mean you know in different ages for me personally. I'm not a big proponent of anybody. Young in high school using cannabis. Knowing what i know now i mean their minds are still developing if it was somehow like regulated to away where it be good for them. But i'm not saying that anybody who smoked cannabis in in their high school days. You know there are a little slow or a little stupid cannabis. Today is way different from what we were grown up higher percentages of. Thc well in the growing is been more refined as if they were growing like corn. Ring like that like it's organic. There's more of an organic thing. And i know that such a marketed word. You know if it's organic over there. They've taken great steps into making sure that it's the highest potency in the highest quality and and we've seen a lot of missteps taken by the cannabis world even today. That tried to take a shortcut. Yeah a lot of people who get into cannabis for the wrong reasons really for money and a lot of that you see in the products that are pushed out. How businesses are run a lot of the policies and lack of regulation in place. We don't have any across the board standard of quality of anything cannabis for what it takes to even get into the industry. You know why we wanna do this. Because there's such a lack of education. Even people in the industry from bud tenders growers to the people who run the business and that trickles all the way down to the end you so if the people who are running at don't know and don't have the education. How are they going to provide a good quality product the end users and correctly teach them how to use that in effective way for them. Yeah you're hitting a note there is definitely about not just getting educated but continuing to educate yourself and educate others because this the reason why we are in the predicament. Now people can be very upset about all well. We can't use marketing to be able to promote our our brand of thc related products. There's a good reason for it because it's still seen as in the shadows drug dealers right. I don't even. I don't even wanna say drug dealers. I'm just thinking like you know people who are peddling garbage in when you're giving names in we'll we'll be talking about a lot of those names here because that's what they go by right now. I mean i was related to cereal box names to saturday. Morning cartoons. They've got very unique and funny names but most of those were used as code words to be able to keep law enforcement away from going on. Although i'm using some bruce banner right now the guys think that cop could be walking bag on Yes he must be a big fan of lou ferrigno or or. He's really into the hulk him as really being the marvel would a cool guy. My kids into marvel whatever was now is a different day. Those words i strongly feel that in that. That's my opinion is that those are actually hurting. that's right. legislation is so hard on cannabis. That's why you can't use advertising because it's used in a way to promote that exactly what you started out with the donor mentality. nothing wrong with stunners stunners. Some of the most people i've ever met but dot is not what needs to be promoted. That's not what's going to help with legal legalization in the and i want to be clear about that real quick before you go into brandon. I'm i am not about using this platform to promote a political or business agenda. Oural purpose of this one is just to be able to build up an education platform. Where you as the listener can be able to learn more about cannabis get a little bit more in depth knowledge on that one from the type strain the way you can consume it problems with it ways that you may feel on it different ways you can counter it based upon our own personal experience and what others have said so I mean that. That's where i'm coming from but brennan. I'm curious where do you see that i agree a lot with that. We're not really wanting to take a stance as far as political or anything else. We're really just here to provide the information for you guys to teach you about cannabis so that you can find an avenue to go to to have a better understanding of this product to see if this is something that can help you or might help you. We've seen everybody from people. Having depression problems. Making shift over to cannabis younger people. Having problems with pain elderly having problems of pain in. We've had people very close to us. That have had life. Changing experiences from being able to use cannabis myself included. You know and yours. As well. I i had problems being able to take Anxiety and depression medications for years. And i hated it. It helped at the time. Because i was having panic. Attacks cannabis was the vehicle. That actually helped me stop taking something that didn't belong in my body at all. It definitely helped. My mind is better from that one. My creativity is higher based on not being doled out from the medications. I was taking a different feeling for sure. I know that cannabis for me has introduced a whole new.

You're creating your own fertilizer or planting your own dynamic accumulators or if you can't do that you're getting you're looking for local farms and local sources.

I would say that. That's a little bit of a of a You know something that. I would say maybe not so there. There's not that many different things that you can do with cannabis to you know.

"But we're not so stupid that we can't figure it out i think Many other countries have led the way with with investigating single molecules. Meaning you isolate cbd. They've done this. I mean i think israel's done a fantastic job doing italy in the uk they're looking at. What can cbd isolated compound do and then you say okay. Now what does cbd. Let's compare isolate cbd with cbd as the plant gives it to us with thc and lintel in some of these other turpin the we just have to be smart about it so i don't know that we need to recreate it Or just start all over but we have to remember that doesn't fit the standard pharmaceutical model. And nor should it have to. I get the sense that you're you're exceptional in your acceptance in your active participation using this as a medicine for most people the united states. They're going to have to look pretty hard to find a doctor who is going to prescribe any cannabis. What advice do you have for listeners. Who who may want to integrate cannabis into their into the regiment. While so there's a lovely group that i belong to called the society of cannabis clinicians for twenty years and Websites cannabis Clinicians dot org and there is a link on their find practitioner. And there are a lot of listed md's but also our and nurse practitioners. Who can at least sit down with you. Go over your medications go over what your goals are and then at least point you in the right direction. One of the reasons. I wrote the book to was to give people a roadmap in. I can't remember which chapter it is but The chapter called how to use cannabis as medicine. Chapter five tells people kind of in a again. This is not to supplant medical supervision. But at least if you read it before you start you kind of say okay. I understand what i'm doing here. Now one of the things. I want people to understand. Is that when patients come in to a non cannabis doctor and you can get diagnosed with the condition in pick a medication. They're picking that medication for you. Based on research right that they know hopefully and they're also picking that medication because they have some clinical experience with it for the most part and also because they feel comfortable with it. Okay but at the same time if you've never taken that medication before you have no idea what it's going to do to you. I i myself had a medicine prescribed. Probably about twenty years ago and just about ended up in the emergency room because i had the worst side effects and i called the practice and it's after hours so two different dr not my doctor who says to me Who who says well. Gee i don't think i would have started with that one. Which of course eroded all confidence that i had in my doctor but at the same time the reality is is that sometimes you takes two three four medicines to find the fit right or two or two or three different medicines all at once. They say all k now starting to feel better. It's no different with cannabis. You're not gonna pick it. You buy a bottle of cbd. Let's say an you take say well. Gee it didn't work. I mean it's just not that simple. There are some people who get that benefit. But that's not. Really the way that cannabis works it takes time to find the regimen and If i could share anything with listeners it is..

"Right now through state Licensed dispensaries so again we have to d- schedule and then the big question is how do we do that. We keep petitioning the federal government. Just keep working out there so many different advocacy groups. That have already tried to do that. And i think that we're closer than ever at this point because we have something like thirty. Three states that have cannabis laws. We have eleven states. That have a legalized cannabis and we have I think four states coming up with this Election in a twenty twenty so we just have to keep the pressure on and try to try to change it. I think we're closer than ever. You mentioned the book too that. A lot of the research is focused on recreational use. I don't know that it's a giant schism. I mean there's a lot of companies that are jumping in product that i don't know if it's strictly or slash medicinal. There's not a bright clear lying for that. Do we need a new paradigm where we see. This substance that can be used medicinally alcohol. I don't think it has medicinal. Properties is used recreationally in. It's very destructive. You if you look at how we look at pharmaceuticals it takes. I don't know a hundred million dollars in ten years to develop a pharmaceutical and then there's an atom that is used when a certain diagnosis is made. Do we need a completely new paradigm for this plant based medicine. I don't think so. I don't see any reason to recreate the wheel. The plant is there and the key is education. Educate doctors educate medical students. Educate people who are ill who are seeking information about how cannabis may or may not help them but part of that is going to have to be. The research designing with cannabis doesn't fit the the gold standard. You know the randomized controlled trial. Because it's very hard to mask the taste and the smell when you're giving somebody a product right number like all i know that's not a placebo immediately but also you have to remember that the plant is got it's got over five hundred different compounds in it so ultimately if i give a child a recommend certain let's say you know use a cd and twenty five to one ratio and take x. Milligrams twice a day and mom let me know how it goes in a week And let's say the apparent calls me and says oh the seizures down by fifty percent. Do i assume it's the cbd in the bottle. Do i assume it's the thc to not bottle because remember twenty five to one ratio is a little bit of thc in there is both. Is that the other cannabinoid center in. There is the repeat is it. All of it so cannabis is very difficult to study..

"It's not low doses like you know under twenty five. Milligrams usually won't cause a problem with other drugs but again you wanna make sure that you're not causing drug to become toxic or ineffective by using cbd high cd especially with other medications those contra indications that you wanna avoid you mentioned your early career in pediatrics and this up in several interviews that i've done. I did one a couple of weeks ago with a pediatric nurse. Sanjay gupta was there with his cnn. Special i think was called. We'd run two thousand eleven or so where they identified epilepsy. Pediatric epilepsy and i think autism is kind of related to that and that seemed to be like a tipping point. Have you noticed that in terms of public acknowledgement that. This is a legitimate medicine. Absolutely dr gupta came out and said this is why i changed my mind. I used to be against cannabis cannabis. He shared that story about little charlotte figgy in colorado who had a severe pediatric epilepsy caused by genetic syndrome. And basically she was sent home to die and her mother Managed to get a hold of some. Cbd plant a cannabis plant material Got it turned into oil and gave it to her and it changed everything For her slowed her seizures. Down stop magic. It's just that it appears that. Cbd you know has all these different targets in the brain that help with what we call neuro excited tori conditions. And there's no question. That kind of dr gupta put the mainstream approval there. It was after that special which i actually believe. It was august twenty thirteen after that. Special that i started Getting inundated with phone calls. You know do you see children and remember my background's pediatrics and pediatric er and critical care. So i'm very comfortable with children. Who are ill. And who are on a multitude of other medicines to have complex issues and so i just started seeing those kids because they really had no other place to go. And i had already seen a few kids that were having a good result. The big problem at the time was actually getting a hold of good quality Cbd medicine cannabis medicine. It's interesting. The market responded didn't look how quickly now there's you know hundreds of Cannabis cbd cannabis products on the market. It's sort of opened the door. I mean who could be against a medicine that can save little kids from seizure to me. It opened the door cape. It's good for that maybe people talking about. Ptsd it's good for that. And you know when. I look at your book and i looked at the table contents. I think there was twenty six conditions that that you wrote about from anti-anxiety to traumatic brain injury and in a lot of things in between it's obviously a very versatile medicine to yes it is and it's funny because there are some people say. Oh how can cannabis do all that. And look i'm the first to say it's not a panacea..
"cannabis" Discussed on Kannaboomers | Cannabis for Wellness
"That really is extraordinarily safe. And especially when someone's between a rock and a hard place for instance children that come see me who've been on ten different seizure medicines in. They're still having fifty seizures a day i know. Cbd is going to be safe for that child whether it's gonna work or not as the question right or any cannabis compound gonna work for that child But when we any time we're recommending treatments or prescribing medicine we always as physicians good physicians look at benefit versus risk and certainly The benefits can be quite great. And i will share with you at even giving cannabis to under medical supervision. The risk is very low. And i think that is why kind of the layperson industry is an laws or kind of outpacing. The science at this point. It's time for the science to catch up though and that's a good place to begin. Is you hear a lot of cannabis. Advocates mentioned that you know no one has ever died. There's no record of anyone having died from an overdose of this and you in the book you bring up lethal dose the l. d. fifty calculation. Almost anything could be lethal in a large enough dose right. that's correct and with cannabis. We know again. So you have to look at the mechanism of action of how death is caused by By drugs okay. So for instance we all know that people across our country are dropping dead from opioid overdoses. So how does that work well you have opioid receptors in the air of your brain. That control breathing your your respiratory rate and if you take now. By the way those opioid receptors are not do not exist. In our brains for synthetic opioids or even for the opium plant that. That's not why we haven't we haven't because we make endorphins. Okay and we. We make the compound that binds to the receptor. Just like we make serotonin for our serotonin receptors dopamine for our dopamine receptors. So.
