New York is latest state to legalize recreational marijuana

"New York has become the latest state in the U. S. To legalize the recreational use of marijuana. The new law allows people to freely use cannabis in public spaces and those convicted of marijuana related crimes in the past. We'll have their records expunged. The move is also seen as having huge financial benefits to the state's economy. Business correspondent Katie Silver has more The New York state finds itself really struggling with the economic impacts of the covert 19 pandemic, and many of saying that this new legislation is a looking to improve that. So to give you an idea, Governor Andrew Cuomo's office is predicting that it could raise in the order of about $350 million a year in tax revenue as well as generating about 60,000 jobs. If we compare this to more established industries in the likes of Washington and Colorado, say where they have actually legalized marijuana almost a decade ago. They're they're making about half a billion dollars each year in tax revenues. So Governor Andrew Cuomo was hoping to break off a piece of that slice. Another interesting element to this legislation. Is that this actually going be business licenses. Set aside the black and Hispanic businesses. And that's because the state says that these people have bean historically disadvantaged as a result of the war on drugs. And I'm hopeful that this legislation could correct that New York is the 16th state in the U. S to now legalized marijuana for recreational use, And the interesting part is well on this fact, is that Many. For example, many neighboring states of New York, such as New Jersey and Massachusetts have become destinations for New Yorkers to go and buy their marijuana taking away funds from New York state, and this is something that Andrew Cuomo is hoping to

New York Lawmakers Expected To Legalize Recreational Marijuana

"15th state along with the District of Columbia to legalize recreational marijuana. State lawmakers are expected to vote on that later today. Officials say they hope to create a regulated industry with tens of thousands of jobs while ending racially biased drug arrests. NPR's Brian Mann reports. Police across New York State still arrest hundreds of people every year for possessing small personal use amounts of pot studies show people of color are far more likely to be prosecuted for marijuana possession. Senator Liz Krueger, a Democrat from Manhattan, says her bill will end that. I think it's a huge change. We're going to be a sponging the criminal records. Of tens of thousands of people. Governor Andrew Cuomo says he'll sign the measure. His office estimates annual tax revenues from legal pot sales could eventually reached $350 million a year with his many as 60,000 jobs. Cougar says the law directs those benefits to neighborhoods hit hard by addiction and high arrest rates. 40% of the revenues That will come out of the taxes from legal marijuana will go right back into those communities that were harmed by the drug wars. Critics of this bill acknowledge pot legalization is unstoppable. Sandra Doorly is a Republican prosecutor who heads the New York State District Attorneys Association. We understand that It's going to be reality. Doorly worries The measure doesn't give police clear authority to deal with motorists impaired by marijuana. If you legalize marijuana, and you stop someone who you believe is impaired, you know, how were we going to be able to prove it? Democrats agree It's hard to detect motorists impaired by marijuana, and they're backing new research to develop better roadside cannabis tests. Recreational use of marijuana remains a federal crime.

What the Deal to Legalize Marijuana Means for New Yorkers

What the Deal to Legalize Marijuana Means for New Yorkers

"Cuomo reportedly struck a deal yesterday. To begin the process of legalizing recreational cannabis for adult use. In New York state proponents contend that opening the state up to legal weed will create an industry that will generate tens of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in tax revenue for the state. Yesterday's agreement specifically addresses the punishing toll that the uneven enforcement of low level marijuana offenses in the state has had on poor black and brown communities. It includes a provision to re invest millions in tax revenue generated from cannabis sales. Into these communities, and the state plans to set aside a portion of business licenses for people of color and women. Now, these plans have generally not produced the intended equity results. In other legal weed states. So can New York do better? What are the terms of the agreement? Why now? And when will you be able to walk into a store and buy some with me now on these questions, and more is Alice and Martin, co founder of Cannabis Wire, a news organization covering the cannabis industry nationally and globally she's been described as the queen of the we'd beat.

I always love coming back and let's start with that basic last question first, if this does pass next week. When can people walk into a store or I guess they'll be called dispensaries and buy marijuana products illegally. Well, you know, I don't have a crystal ball like anyone else. But I would say Ballpark at least a year, maybe two years. It takes time to get the market up and running. It takes that much time. Well, rulemaking. Of course, that's that's really the sort of sausage maker after bills passed, then you know a lot of lot of heads, get into the room and figure out sort of the nitty gritty details.

Indoor Farming With Jackie Roberts Of Appharvest

"Okay. So we've all seen greenhouses interviewed domino olen for example who runs the greenhouse at george mason university in virginia about how her facilities providing food and even spices to the university's food service and see greenhouses with just flowers like it were states and other properties and now we see cannabis plants being grown in greenhouses. But what about greenhouses on a commercial scale and ones that recycle water do not use toxic. Fertilizers or get more out of the acreage than tenting and outdoor farm would right. Well that's what my guest today says there novel. Indoor farm will actually do so. Let's find out how it works. I'd like you to meet jackie. Roberts chief sustainability officer at ap harvest. Jackie has been in the sustainability spaces. I said for probably twenty five years including in the same role chief sustainability officer at the carlisle group which is investment company and as senior director of the environmental defense fund. Or where. I first met her probably about ten years ago. I think it was right. She earned all her degrees from yale. Smart cookie that she is including a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering and to help them manage degrees one from the yale. School of management and the other from the school of the environment without further ado welcomed green captions radio jackie. And thank you for joining us. I'm so excited. Thank you down. It's great to be here. Oh you're welcome. you're welcome. Congratulations on your new role at app harvest. Give us an overview of the indoor farms. How does app harvest actually work. Where they you know. where is it located. I chance in appalachia but give us a little more details. You know kind of what you're growing give us give us the proverbial thirty thousand foot view app harvest. I think is a really unique company in that are core product which is healthy vegetables is combined with a very sustainable climate. Resilient way of growing those vegetables and we're doing it in appalachia where the opportunity for job growth and economic development is really appreciate The the core product is a chemical pesticide free In in our first large greenhouse which you can see a picture of in my background but at sixty acres for those who can't see it Is a growing tomatoes and chemical pesticide free. Gmo free because the way we can grow in a closed system enables us to use biological pest approaches to control pests and disease and also a lot of trained workers and other interventions that can prevent outbreak. So we you know as a mother with three children knowing that what's coming out of our greenhouses is zero. Residue is a real attribute that i value. But how we grow it in your introduction spoke to it is we are very climate resilient in their storms that the that recently hit we had some employees that had trouble getting to work other people had to pitch in. We had one employee show up on their tractor to make sure they could get to work But you know we really did incredibly well in terms of being resilient. We had all the things we needed. We were harvesting on time stuff was getting out to the markets and it was a real testament to this strategy as an important part of the mix of different types of agriculture and When when we're growing We are able to use one hundred percent rainwater. We have a system of irrigation. That is set up where the rainwater is captured on the top of our sixty roofs it stored in a retention pond. And then we bring it into the greenhouse with a little bit of filtration through sand and you'd be late and that water re circulates. We don't ever a released anything into the atmosphere. The nutrients are put into the water and stay in the water until we need to add more. We can measure very precisely. It's a space where a has really enabled us to do very precise measurements and the plants. Exactly what they need. We do Nanotechnology with the water. Because bringing more oxygen into the water enables the plans to absorb the nutrients even better but all of that is is a closed system. And you know when when. I started in chemical engineering. The reason i went into chemical engineering is a wonderful professor. Who said if you care about environmental problems you should study chemical engineering because you learn how system works and where all the pollution comes from and how it's released to the environment

"You know one thing that i explained to people is that no matter. What field of study you go in every field of study has its own language that you have to learn before you can really understand what those people are saying. Because you have your vernacular and your vocabulary your head. And you're going to interpret their words based on what you understand but they're wrapped up in a whole other world. You know of people of like minds that are using terms in a certain way. And then there's there's this other issue of it's so common for scientists to be dismissive And that attitude causes major problems in the public. Then wanting to have any sort of dialogue or disappears like the whole the whole general community of cannabis users tells us. There is an indica in a sativa type. Feeling right and we can tell the difference. And then there's only a few can like real cannabis scientists out there that actually studied the plant. And we're coming back at the end saying no. You're wrong like i think it's a disservice to the public to be so dismissive and be so concrete to say that there is no such thing when we've got the vast majority of people who have had their hands on these plants for a long time telling but there is especially when we don't have all the answers. Just i feel like you know especially in the candidates industry. And i can't think of any other industry where the people who've been working with this plant for so long are generally pretty distrustful of scientists. They're like you don't know what you're talking about. Ib now i've been growing cannabis for forty years and you're stupid. Yeah i've i've been giving a lecture somewhere and had someone stopped me and basically do that to me like no. You're totally wrong. You don't know what you're talking about. And i try to use those situations as a chance to engage dialogue into rather than be like well. No this is this paper says or whatever to say. Well where are you coming from. What do you mean when you say that. I'm wrong because maybe we're just talking past each other and maybe there's a way we can get on the same page Because i know me myself. I have to check myself constantly in the way that i'm talking about things just because i mean i talked to other researchers all the time so my mental space different in this sort of environment versus if i'm going to public seminar in talking to a bunch of people in the community So it's it's it's tricky in a lot of times. What i find is that it becomes a A language game of just trying to figure out like well like if i say. That indicates tiv aren't well-supported scientifically well. What does that mean well. It doesn't mean that there aren't all of these chemical varieties of cannabis that are listening unique effects.

"I feel like you know. One of our biggest points of contention. Is this idea of indicates the tiba where taxonomy this is where we're science and the general public sort of butt heads. Those terms are used differently in botanical terms. Right in there. there's only one. There's only one species did cannabis sativa. But we know. When when they were first describing. There was kind of the colder weather type. Which is the shorter stature. Darker leafs Cannabis indica and. Then there's the more tropical warmer weather cannabis heroes taller and has dinner leaflets. In all that sets science right. That's how name things we look at them and in and it turns out that genetically. They're not really that different. Not enough to hold them in as a different species or even different subspecies just. They're just pheno types. That are more suited to different climates. Or not yeah but then on the on the consumer side we have the words indika Being used to describe certain effects land those effects can be different from person to person. But you can figure out what you like. What you don't like annual associate that term with that feeling or or you know that effect and the two things don't align at all so the morphology of the plant does not match effects ever like there's no connection between the two and so scientists are butting heads scientists who saying there's no independent sativa or know we could base it on morphology but it doesn't it doesn't work with how people are talking about it and so i think they're both fine. Terms to use one describes morphology when describes affects. It's just unfortunate that they're using the same words that don't mesh In so like that's one of my one of our big things in our in our class is you know we do talk about sativa and indica because not all. The science is in yet like we were talking about before there could be a minor constituent very heavily contributes to the feeling that you have with an indica or sativa and people can tell the difference. But we don't know if that's like.

That's what you have to remember. You're not gonna feel that a thc. Especially if the compound is dominant cbd but remember by augmenting the endo cabinet system. It's kind of like you're giving your cannabinoid system a little bit of a leg up to help you respond to these various stressors in your life whether they be physical mental or both and Certainly there again. There's no downside to it in those people who are taking other medications that might interact and Right now there's lots of books out that talk about drug interactions talk about in my book. There's also websites where there have some information about drug interactions. You can And especially if you're taking on the lower end of dosing like i said you know under fifty milligrams or so twenty five milligrams or so. It's not going to be a dose in which really going to harm yourself. You wanna be sure if if your medications. But i do think that it. You may find over time it's helpful. There are some a human Trials again from outside the united states where they looked at people taking some low dose. Cbd for anxiety and people found to work now again. anxiety is not something you can really measure objectively right. It's how you feel so maybe just by taking something. Cgi feel better. Because i'm taking it right. Maybe it's a placebo effect. But maybe it's not and may be might be giving your endo cannabinoid system that little bit of of boost. That helps it. We know that yoga meditation A healthy diet exercise all helps boost your endo cannabinoid system. so it's not just. Can't the cannabis plant that does it. There's other modalities and we know that in again. I always tell this to people. If you are chronically. Stressed and chronically sleep deprived your window. Cannabinoid system is likely out of balance. And you kind of get into this vicious cycle and it may behoove you to take cannabis in some form to help yourself break that cycle in and get your into cannabinoid system up and running again where it can benefit you. That's not widely known enough. You do a good job of explaining that. Cd is not psychoactive. it's not intoxicated. Right it is on your brain. Anything psychoactive should look at it. That it actually has some activity in the brain so it it. It's a bit of a misnomer to say that. Thc psychoactive in cbd isn't cb stop seizure.

"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.

"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.

"Can work again. It you're not going to harm yourself with that but you may not find what works for you. And certainly at that point if cannabis isn't helping you might need medical supervision. Meaning just someone to say. Hey this is what i've tried. It didn't work. Where should i go from here. And and again that's why cannabis specialty for those of us. Who practice in this field is has kind of become a thing. It seems to me you're sort of on the vanguard. I mean stepping into the breach in between this world. That still politically we we still have. It's as a schedule. one substance. with no redeeming. medicinal value in here. You are legitimately saying. I do no harm. And this is a less harmful alternatives than than some of the farm logical agents. That are dispensed every day for you. You don't have all the research you like but you know that this is going to reduce suffering for some people. Yeah there's no question about that.

Let's say they're in a state where they i can't get approval to use cannabis or they don't have a physician to help them with the whole plant cannabis. Meaning the the one that we're using under the medical cannabis laws. We now have a pharmaceutical to us. Now i personally Would err on the side of using the whole plan but at the same time everything should be on the table for a child. That has severe epilepsy. We know that every time they have a seizure you multiply those you compound them over. Time you put in drugs have toxic side effects. That child's brain is Not going to respond well. We know what prolonged seizures do we know. What harsh chemicals do. There's a big burden there That that sometimes than can change the long term outcome.

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..

"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.

"To Canvas that we often talked about as genetically you and I can have absolutely different reactions to the same amount of cannabis and how does that complicate this even further? I think it makes cannabis one of the most complicated math puzzles that we have. It's it really is that unique individual way. It affects each one of us differently that makes it really hard to control in what essentially scares big Pharma birth. We make medications because we know exactly what they're going to do exactly how they're going to perform in their exact State when we look at cannabis. The plant itself has over 500 active compounds and even if you were growing the same strain or the same variety of cannabis are environmental factors can make a difference in how each one of those prep plans end up expressing their cannabinoid profiles in their profiles. And so there are so many variables that come to play here and that's why I really like to empower individuals to know how to use cannabis in an educated way that they can learn to use it for themselves based on their own personal reaction because again, it's so different for everybody. So we haven't talked about on this show. It's a test and learn sort of scenario worse case. I mean with Vapes or edibles are any kind of different cultivar and you mentioned terpenes as well. And that's interesting in that terpenes are very aromatic, right? That is also going to affect your taste bud. You know when you have a recipe for lasagna say, you know that a certain amount of tomato sauce is required and you can go up or down but you're going to pay attention to the flavor with cannabis. I'm going to depend on the terpene profile of that particular cultivar that you're using. Is this a science or an art or both. Oh definitely both I believe it's it's so much science, but it's so much art and we can't always apply science to real life. That's where the art comes in. That's where the anecdotal evidence comes in and it really can be a beautiful marriage of evidence things and anecdotal based evidence until you really come up with something unique that works for you because again, it's different for everybody. What are some of your most popular recipes. How do people really take to this? What are they really like, so obviously, it's funny. My most popular recipe is cannabis butter and I think that's just because that's the most tried-and-true that's what people know that their parents made or back in the seventies. That's what's so and so maybe For some reason that just always sticks out as the most classic recipe and I kind of love it because then once it's made you can use it in just about any recipe that calls for butter sweet or savory. But when we're cooking with cannabis there really are so many other ways we can use it..

Off by saying, you know you've got a big footprint in the bay area through your work with the harbourside dispensary, but what a lot of people might not realize you had a career as an actor before all this I did that was my first while my second dream as a young man was to be a professional stage and film actor.

Is that come into you when you first encounter, cannabis began to happen to me and I and I just happened to also be in high school acting class at that time. and I learned in the acting class that my fellow.

And you can Kinda dial in the effects I mean we know more now about the various cabinets about the pins. Using dreicer in dialing in the temperature, so you're not incinerating the whole flower at once, you can be a lot more discreet in the facts you're getting. You can choose a cultivar that might work for this purpose right well I. think that you know to go back to this book that were working on. I think that live the cannabis. World has changed dramatically since our youth. And it's confusing. You know you're talking about a dry vaporizer that you can adjust the temperature on I. Know what you're talking about a lot of people, don't they? Don't you know they just know that smoking a joint? Right and so so there's a lot to explain here about turbines. What Turpin you know? Why is why does that matter and I think that that's you know there's really the our idea to to come up with this book just to came out of this tremendous need for just really reliable information that's tailored for for baby boomers. That have some they have. They're not complete strangers to the plant, but they've just have haven't kept up with all the advances that have happened in you know in the interim decades since they were familiar with it. We've had Dr cap on the show, and he is so knowledgeable and he's very accessible and he has a way of kind of breaking it down. And he's prolific. He puts out a lot of content himself. So you have a great partner. They're to write a book and great collaborator I know I'm very fortunate. I, know we we're we working well together. It is interesting. There are so many complexities. It's almost like a sommelier. Knows can taste the wine and tell you where it came from. And there's there's so many subtleties and again. I, we often talk about test and learn you know we're bringing our own genetics to this plant that has very different genetics, and maybe within the same plant, or even on the same bud, the flower from the tip of the buds going to be different from at the base of the bud. So there's all sorts of complexity to this. It's like a a three D. Matrix, and there's so many different variables, so it's a big job to simplify it right and I think they're going to be people who who just you know, just rebel in that the variety and be. You know all the different options and impossibilities going into an incredibly well-stocked wine store. You know just all the different chemo.

At the s we lift these long lives and are thinking. Get tense to get a little rigid. Cannabis is an opportunity to open up a little bit to you know, take a different perspective to also to relate to our bodies in a different way, maybe to you the to reestablish relationship with our our physicality. If it's dancing if it's you know sexual intimacy on these things are are possibilities that cannabis can enhance so i. think that that you know that cannabis can have a huge role to play in a new kind of aging, and this is what I'm going to be writing about in this book. That's amazing. We'll definitely be looking for that. When it comes out, have a title yet, or is it a work in progress? Have a provisional title. We're still. We're still looking for a publisher, okay? Boy I like the thesis, though I mean in a way, baby boomers. We made a cult of our own youth. And here, we are decades later with this old acquaintance myself. In college experimented a lot. Maybe did some waking in baking, but once I entered the world I put cannabis aside for decades. I didn't touch it. But a lot of us may be alcohol is your social lubricant of choice and after a while you go maybe have had enough of that. Right well I think that that model you know it's interesting that there's A. Cannabis marketing firm for a data analysis firm that that talked about. About boomerangs those are baby boomers that like you and like me that you know. We smoked pot in college, and then we you know. When we got married and had kids, we stopped for decades. And now we're discovering this old friend. You know that we're a little nervous about. It used to make us really paranoid. We don't want to. You know an owner. Feel that paranoia again and you know and yes, we. We heard that it's really strong now and to be really careful, and you know it's really dangerous, and and we're starting to say well. Wait a minute. Maybe you know. Maybe it's not so dangerous. Maybe it is worth exploring, and that's really what I hope to with my writing to help. People understand that they don't it. It's worth exploring. It's not for everybody. Some people won't like it some people. It's not gonNA help. But but it's definitely worth a try and. It's nothing to be afraid of right. Do you find acceptance of that I mean you know I use a C.

I know I'm not taking Ambien or something so I wake up refreshed and I know I'm not going to risk being addicted to it while the other little applications like that. Do you find that more boomers are returning to those sorts of uses well? I think that that. I'm working on my book with a Co authored a Dr Benjamin Kaplan out of Boston and he has it. You know just a wealth of experience with many different patients and many baby boomers. And older adults, and they come to him. with with concerns, but I think many of them say they don't WanNa get high. They're afraid of the. They, you know just don't WanNa.

"Better and they're looking for more natural approach to health and healing Yeah exactly and so coming back around so you are. You're in medical school. You discovered cannabis and were able to start to function better. Where did your path lead after that Kind of how did the rest of your medical school and go and then with. What did you specialize them so? I specialized in integrative care. So what I knew what I understood that cannabis was part of a holistic movement and that it wasn't going to be the end all be all even sure myself. I knew that when I integrated cannabis I then I could get off the couch. Then maybe I could give a breather and take my back. Brace off for a couple of hours but I needed to utilize those hours and exercise. Do some foam roller exercise. Is maybe take a trip to the acupuncturist. I'm an osteopathic physician so I also use my hands to help heal patients. I DO MANIPULATION. And the tendons and the ligaments so hands on approach for patients so so cannabis breaks that storm. You know it's sort of parts the clouds a little bit and then it allows you to do.

"cannabis" Discussed on Kannaboomers | Cannabis for Wellness

"But what did I say a respected medical doctor How do you find the respected ones? Well you know there. Most of them are on social media. And if they're not on social media there's people like me summarizing and you know writing about their work and their research conclusions And I like it that way you know. Let them focus on doing the research and getting there the grant money together an hall that and getting us some credible hard science. And then you know. We'll go ahead and we'll tell the world about it will summarize it through our podcasts at our articles and our white papers absolutely. That's what I'm excited about. His sharing being skeptic being doubtful but when you have it scientifically proven than. Let's talk about it. Let's tell people and share the news. Exactly I like that word skeptic think we should all be skeptics right now but skepticism is different than pessimism and anybody who confuses the two is going to get into dangerous waters. Kurt is there anything. We haven't discussed that. We should I would just tell listeners that yeah if you're nervous about you and your loved ones getting this virus you know being impacted by a beyond so economically in our careers and working from home and all that. There's nothing we can do about that. We need to play our part not spreading this right. Not being part of the problem but Here's the way I'm looking at this now. As CD and other components of cannabis are no way preventative. agent or a cure quote unquote for providers or Any other virus we can. We can say that. That's the best doctors and researchers tell us so so that is true however we have credible research and hundreds of thousands of research studies that point toward the cannabinoid. Turpin flavonoids produced by plants like hemp and cannabis improving. Our health and part of that improvement is in our immune response now. If you have a more the stronger immune system right more powerful immune response more effective. Will that help you not a contract A virus or get cancer or any other ailments right. It doesn't add a stronger Body Immune response which all we have proven comes from the Endo adenoid system and you pointed out something excellent a few minutes ago that was not even discovered and the dentist guide until the nineteen nineties. Like most most of us were alive at that point and that just really puts it in perspective so only like eleven percent of graduating medical doctors were taught anything about the Endo cannabinoid system in medical school so And sometimes if they do it's only like fifteen minutes or the process in chapters seven page four and it might be on the test. They're not really even even those who were getting exposure to the ACS medical school. It's not very deep typically so That's another issue we've got here is a doc. I'm afraid you know I'm I don't want to be at risk of corona virus. How can I make myself healthy and avoid it? You Doctors GonNa tell you a lot of strategies and maybe prescribed things to you in order to achieve that right If they don't mention can avenue AIDS serpents and flavonoids from cannabis and hemp whatsoever. I think that's disingenuous to their mission. But that's kind of my opinion right. Not Everybody agrees with that. You're taking a stand and I think I have to agree. I mean what we've learned about our immune system in the Indo cannabinoid system that governs sleep and anxiety and fertility in all kinds of things. In the level of Homeo- stasis you know and I've talked with other guests about cannabis alone isn't the answer. You also need to pay attention to your diet and tears sleep. Yes and yet. You have to exercise but cannabis can be very foundational to wellness and Yeah. I think any medical professional who doesn't know that or doesn't mention that is Not really doing their complete duty anymore. Right I think Convenient Mental Model. Is that you know these cabinets. Interpreting from hemp and cannabis are just another tool in the toolbox. And I like that people like Mark Gordon and Ben Kaplan and Peter grins spoon. Talk about this ally that You know let's not. There are some activists in the cannabis. Space that you know are always putting down big Pharma and there's both good and bad from big Pharma but I don't know about you but I have loved ones who if it weren't for certain pharmaceutical drugs Their life would be a lot worse than they. Currently are and So again cannabis and cannabinoid. Interpreters are merely another tool in the toolbox and we need to consider subjective efficacy of I interviewed. Dr Ben Kaplan for a subjective efficacy article for strain print readers can go listeners can go check it out And we dedicated the entire article to. Why do some patients respond one way and others a totally different way on the exact same molecule the exact same product or the exact same dosage right and at the end of the day is efficacy is very very subjective In fact the same dose of those exact same Cultivar of cannabis that sues and reduces anxiety for one patient. can give another person a panic attack incentive to the emergency room right. Well that's another big piece of this is you have to listen to your own body The as you mentioned the same cultivar could affect both of us in many different ways completely. Different ways that's a big aspect is taking the time to really pay attention to what happens when you inhale this or you eat this or you rub this on in. Maybe keeping a journal. You know I've done whole shows on that that there's enough going on that between your dosage and the CULTIVAR and what results you're expecting in what results who actually get that. It's definitely worth it to track it right and you know. There's a lot of patients and consumers who are currently experimenting with edibles and non inhaled forms of cannabis consumption to get these tabloids into their and Oakland Avenue it system and you know making their health better And I think that's a great thing I continue to spoken. Vape myself but I wouldn't necessarily officially give that advice to others if they really want to look at it And and the framework of a better safe than sorry scenario Yes it is An it's so great that as cannabis patients and consumers we have the option of saying you know what during at least for as long as this pandemic is in place. I'm going to either decrease my smoking or quit smoking. And I'm going to replace it with edibles or transdermal or sub lingual all great ways and you know pain. Patients don't want to wait two hours for an edible so if you go sub lingual or transdermal The efficacy the onset is much faster. Have we covered everything you know? I think we we have an apologized to listeners that we can't you know say better less ambiguous answers than you know. Seek out science-based sources and just be very careful who you listen to again. I don't want to kick anybody any particular source of misinformation and the teeth. This is about innocent consumers and patients getting accurate science based information so yes Genoa. If you're on social media tune into sources like Peterman spoon and Ben Kaplan then Mara Gordon and many many others Who are speaking from a science perspective and by the way this gets messy. Sometimes because they don't always agree with one another but It's typically on very nuanced Topics right Overall they're still striving to embrace evidence based research and just not make assumptions right At at the end of the day statement like CBD preventing cures the CORONA VIRUS IS A. It's wishful thinking I would love that to be the case wouldn't you yes? We all would write but that simple. We just don't have any science showing us that so so that's the situation at the end of the day. Be Very careful where you get your information and who you believe and trust right. Don't believe everything you hear on the Internet. You can be a dog and no one knows so be ready to investigate your sources and again look for that scientific pedigree in that's the ultimate badge of credibility is if someone does have the some science behind them it is but you know just just for the record though there are PhD's MD's and our peaches etcetera that Are Not so based in science or do come from a perspective that causes alarm for some of us So you know yes. I I tend to gravitate toward PhD's and MD's and and you know geneticists and researchers and such in my work. But because of that I've learned that not one hundred percent of those people are coming from the best perspective so again it kind of goes back to life as a bell curve right of all dentists in Nebraska. Some are going to be just a plus wonderful and some not so much well follow the money to is another great piece of Advice. You mentioned so true Yes true. Kurt. Thanks for taking the time. I hope everyone listening is doing well. Listen to Kurt when he tells you that. Cd is not a cure all but it could help you. Stay well at right. I take take. Cbd CG THC in a variety of Turpin on a daily basis and many forms. So I think it's great and in that respect some of these sources of mentioned formation and I are actually agreeing right we're saying. Cbd is good but just remember folks. Don't be spreading this misinformation. That it's a preventative agent or a cure. Because I was very bad words in this context on all right thanks. Thanks Tom.
