Alex Berenson Joins Charlie to Discuss the Drug Issue
"Is here. Alex, you've written extensively about the drug issue. I know we're not here to talk about that. Just what's your immediate reaction on that story that in a middle school in Seattle, they have a lot of times for kids to go do hard drugs. I mean, I think it's a reaction to any parent or any person would have. It's insane. You know, we've moved to legalize cannabis in this country and the early returns are terrible. In my opinion, and instead of learning from that lesson, we are now, you know, the same people who push that are pushing the legalization of psilocybin, mushrooms, and other psychedelics, and it's only a matter of time before some of these people try to decriminalize or possibly even legalize heroin cocaine and methamphetamine. I mean, they've indicated that's where they want to go with this. The reality of the devastation it causes doesn't seem to bother them. It's very, you know, it's sort of liberal slash libertarian meld that I just don't understand.

A Bipartisan Look at Opioids with David Carlucci
"I really want to point out on this podcast if somebody is opening up this podcast and they're listening to me and David talk about this. Let me just say this real quickly. These drugs that you're getting that relate heroin and others that are being life. It could be your one time. It doesn't, you're not going to be 6 years strong out and then all of a sudden hit one. You could do this the first time and I think this is the important part. You know, we can have differences on how we actually live with marijuana or cannabis, those kinds of things. But one of the things that we struggle with in Congress, David, and I know it came back to a state level, was the access to opioids that came out of basically legal prescriptions. And that sort of triggered off this sort of latest round about ten to 12 years ago when, you know, whether it be more health insurer plan, whatever the doctors were prescribing them is if, frankly, they had no effect. I think we're getting a handle on that, but we're still feeling the after effects from what I've seen. I don't know how that was in New York. It is Georgia and other places. No access to opioids, like OxyContin, you know, have just really exacerbated the situation. And we look at former marketing materials that made opioid seem like they were not addicted. The total opposite, right? It's one of the addictive substances on earth. And you're absolutely right. This is not a recreational drug. You know, this isn't a joint and hanging out. Opioids are a serious, serious addiction. And I remember naloxone or Narcan, the brand name accessible. And this was about the commissioner of the health department of New York State that I was in a back and forth because at that time you needed a prescription to carry naloxone, which is the opioid antidote. And if we get it in someone's system or rise up. So we actually had to pass New York and we were the first state to do this to say that naloxone would be accessible over the counter doing that legislation. It didn't need to be legislated, but it wasn't being done through the health department. The health department could have issued just like they do to issue vaccines for the flu or other issues like COVID, what we've seen with vaccines. But that's where it gets back to the

Any stinks years because you're taking blending into account like you can't blend liberal stuff with hydrophobic stuff unless you've got a few tricks up your sleep you can do it but you need some tricks up your sleeve so That was one of the first places list.

You can always add beeswax to something to work as mosa fire. But i'm not a huge fan of of beeswax in I've gone head to head with some people in the atra products industry. Who do this for you know regularly blending stuff instead. Show me some data. That's that demonstrates beeswax doesn't inhibit absorption. Because we think about it just what it is you know it's not necessarily going to facilitate. Absorption it's really a wax coating stuff and blocking it literally so And i had somebody that is working with. Send me like i don't know five papers. Not one of them. She was trying to back yourself up right with data in that water had any indication. I was like okay. Where's the data like okay. Great that you sent me showing this good emulsifier. But there's a big difference in talking to mix and look nice bioavailability in. Yeah so that's interesting. And so is that a that's a. That's a common practice that people like to eat. This is just my own ignorance. That people like us beeswax also fire. Yeah beat beeswax is super common in soft skills as also fire. Because that'll allow you to get some hydro.

"He doesn't have a job. Reaction when you're taking caffeine, you're getting the desired effect to wake up, right? 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

Had to pointed out to me girlfriend at the time now wife to pointed out to me on the streets of belinda. Dot is the smell of cannabis on us like Okay at anyway or okay you start reading. He start reading on. And you realize kay they offer cannabinoid. I think at the time who would just one hundred or so probably publishing like seventy five or eighty or something and also like so. Many preference standards cannot by five like the hell and so i started doing method development and with the tough. You can do some cool stuff anyway. So i'm One of the earliest cannabis samples got injuring method development. I send it through the tough and just lifted run so in a triple quad. You would go and say okay. This is my my My mass that. I want to select for than i a break. It down further to get so you get your your your identify and quantify right and in a tough do slightly different right you you. You run effectively open. You look all the masses. A and afterwards in the software you narrow narrowed down and look for your identify quantify. And and i look for my identifying quantify off all the mass weight of thc acid and so then you also get cbs right..

"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..

"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..

"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 think a huge part of the conversation is how cannabis tax revenue. Hand can help with it. So it's all a lot of exciting things happening. Would you say you guys are lobbyists.

Being at the cusp of legalization is certainly exciting. To be a part of that. I've heard the word cannabis caucus is that for real or is that like a hopeful thing you know we're at a red interest in place. Tom almost seventy percent of americans said they approve of cannabis.

Just put out a paper to try to clarify the taxonomy versus the vernacular of those terms and to try to find some standardization but it is extraordinarily confusing and especially if you're trying to parse through old research a particularly tax in botanical research around cannabis.

They are doing of students You know and then working with them a lot and trying to find things. Yeah and i. I did a really nice interview fairly recently with Vincenza demarco and we were talking about the entourage effects and the Sort of i guess. Misunderstanding in the broader kind of popular culture within the cannabis industry about You know what he mentioned is that when when he and roffe. I presented this concept. Entourage affects everything about two g in these conjures didn't understand their effects and everything and and then over time that concept got sort of or reinterpreted to apply to the cannabis plant and you know these effects that might be at play between turpin and weights and everything but what we're talking about now. I've also talked to arno As well about this that You know there's not. There's not a lot of data That actually shows These sort of a quote unquote entourage affects within the cannabis plant. That doesn't mean they're not there and everyone. I've talked to makes a point to say that. That doesn't mean they're not there but there's very little data that has actually shown The mechanisms of the sort of synergistic effects so far which is important for people to understand. Yes so first of all. This is true and it's funny that you mentioned the immoral said that but this is something that theory. no the the paper interest Ninety nine hundred fame the official benca. We're talking both endo candidates to end the candidates in debrecen nothing about cannabis in you know until people it's a. I think even roussel finished that in something that actually about the in terrific affleck cannabis. The is not the another guy from the street Good papers about the in show in our research we see the dragic they give you an example so you can't be noted in mechanism amran whites doing that and and i think for me the paper that we are trying to publish now on. Did accumulates a breakthrough. because it's one of the first time we are proving into effect in showing that you need more than one component. One combines were you need a combination in explaining accepting why these findings these findings doing that and this is why. I thought it's very important but it's not clear how much decent affect is is there any. How many cases through. I you know we talk about it about the overall action cannabis which patient taking in getting many benefits. We need to understand the indo candidates system in on the action of the cannabis the indu- candidates system almost at the regulatory system. In our buddy in most of the cases not in of a most of the kids. It's it's balancing things in fine tune action. Okay if we're if we you last in our hand is jumping the reason the bet. It's because the there are sensors in the tip of our fingers the feeling they're holding the pain sending a signal faster brain. Send a signal big our muscles or okay to release To contract okay. yes they contract. This is a very fast action. Electric action yeah. Okay.

"And that still in then so having these abilities in these tools first of all change our been away. Many many many scientists physicians collaborations companies approach means. Just that the doing each experiment but they know nothing about the molecules using. Can i purify in with him. I don't know the those music In these open the door for me last year to enter to many different angles of different illnesses and diseases using candidates. You know the best thing. Neuro physician in the world approaching means today the doing this experiment. They need you with me. You're not saying you know this is this is all and we've you know so more and more and more may lab change the way you i researched talking to grow in. There was things so out there. Light with a patient. You know epilepsy or a sleep disorders or in two zero zero there on the on the patient instead just i want to do the understand now the reason. Why can't this effect in which compound how to improve so the roof from allow of six seven students to a level forty five plow which have different groups. I have a group of chemists doing analysis everything every group to doing cancer biology and we can talk about the perfume one every doing a research around neuro. Degenerative diseases like alzheimer's epilepsy. The order In every group. That's working how kennedy's affect the immune system few types of small small think about in small. But it's not be groups. It's individual the doing other things in the last five years in other big project that we did. We crane to big data database in israel on the patient. So in the last five years every cannabis in being bigness. Again there is you know there is a probes to be a small country despite for your board does day and but there is benefit that everybody knows everybody. And everybody's working together. So until last year we had just eight authorize globals just eight greenhouse is easier to work with them to follow up to every candidates. Be every a cannabis They ever product. The patient can get go through my lap. I analyzed all defeated candidates in a in there on the other side. We follow up on on the patient. How it's affecting so does it died improve. Sleep mainly kind of sign of and which i don't call it side effect. If you have a problem of saying oh slipping improving scooping. It's not your scientific. But we we measure that in which we started to to bring that to bed. Get into completed to try to match. Which type of cannabis in which profile of candidates affecting which illnesses in what and these to the lab. Any memorial improved on this indicative. So we kind of doing a study which is back and forth yes. Usually scientists stock in there in the their patient have four legs in and we say our patients in dan. Yup and my lobbies or can you different way when there is interaction always with the patients and the physician. So is enough academic lied. I have four nurses that i'm paying their salaries in the hospitals that they are kind of cannabis. in banjul. the cannabis is in this department. I'm being the salary. That part of the la in deir sitting let saying the main pain department in israel in the own quality department In helping the physician to choose the right annabi. They're helping the patient to understand better. It's not that we know what to give to the patient. We're dairy but can help. We can guide. We can say these. Probably not the right thing. You know stock logos low. When all of these kinds of things you never smoke try and maybe to operate the pay or to explain to guide with getting from that is a relationship directly relationship with the patient and the physicians in being with my hands. You know in the mud i know i know all of these record. Or with the ano- the patients. I know in a little things that we feel from the field. You know that this is helping here. And then we thanking to research to do research in the lab in the other way you know if we discover something unique in its can be in a week weeks already. You know patient get started today. The two main cannabis strain than being giving to epilepsy. The two main strands Which i think. More than ninety percent of the epilepsy kids getting them discovered in the la. You know the gave us a new breathing's. I want to check in nyc in said. Hey this amazing this helping in on the demise on the epilepsy crazy loop. These are unique compounds. I believe this is what he's doing. Because the patient getting prescription renting on.

I'm here with dr david mary from Israel that if you if you've heard me talk at length about science and research you've heard me mention dr area and his team's work Welcome dr mary. Thanks so much for being willing to come on. The podcast in south may today about cannabinoid science. Thank you for having means a pleasure most excellent and to to really kick this right off. Because i've got plenty. I want to dive into. Do you mind sharing a little bit about the lab that you're working in now and some of the I guess focuses of your research up until now and then we'll kind of spin off into All sorts of areas of things that you're currently studying yes so might love in ninety percent of my love working with kennedy. Be another you Beloved the most beloved his woking your own when we started six years ago we went to see how cannabis affecting gins assist the anti cancer properties. Of kennedy's we know the patient use cannabis in treating the palliative treatment of fan of cancer so improving their quality of life. The kids beijing improving game in epa died mood reducing nausea reducing bank to ask how whether cannabis can also be with anti cancer properties. We laid on name that di in research the a come from manual guzman increasing sanchez. But we all know also about ric seem sewn in other things in the question was is it through. The candidates can be on anti-cancer and when we started work. We were quite shocked. I was worried about the knowledge in the tools that they have to research coming from very accurate raid. Modern research in his was hundred years back so the reason that there was illegal to do research around the other reasons in also deregulation when i applied to do cannabis research to the minister of health friendly cannabis in under under the healthcare from two thousand seven though it was two thousand fourteen. I was applying for doing kennedy's research in a day. After the license with cannabis in my licenses are for research. Zero zero zero one. The youngest Ahead days. I was the first one reply. It's true that the news would with raffi michelin. the day. Sure people in in the feel of the no his name. He was ninety three weeks ago. And i was interviewing and good friend with him about his work. You know. i hope. We've got an opening price about his world. So rafi discovered the candidates in the sixties discovered. Can't be in the the cd and then the other candidates and then he was part of the discovery of the indo canopy to insist there is in the other side of the country appeasement. Which is one hour drives. It's big swing. And so i went to rafi in started to learn deeper and deeper in a realized even though the reasonably is no tubes to do the research of our major problems in the beginning were than you getting clinton with yours from glorious you harvest them. You drink action. Taking these extraction using in usa phenomenal result. Doesn't matter talking in the epilepsy in outside marion in cancer. Okay how can you repeat the experiment. How can you get the same. Materials in world are what does contain every of cannabis. It's actually kind of a different. Every chance of caps contain hundreds of different of active combat. We changing degrading. How to keep cavs doing an expert. Who is the shelf life of cannabis to it in in four degrees mine's twenty room temperature. How long it's going to last. What is the by overly ability. But the major problem was to analyze the compost to do to know them holding in my hand in how affecting this in if i'm summarizing five and a half years i think our biggest achievement is creating tools to do their research. You started to build a library to all defeat academy rates from the plan when we started. We look around. I think eleven and then it was seventeen to cannabinoid. Today we can see more than one hundred and forty. So when i'm taking cannabis experts cannabis flower in. I can look into it and to say okay. These are it These are the been the flag. And i'm not blind anymore. So it's it's funny. We kind of played sue. We said you know this. This looks like that in our women. This is typically look like this This suicide look so silly. Been so Ish must look like that and we looked at in the main the master and then when defined is it okay. Dnc look like the pizza. The ain mustard glaze it and we look for the in area year in a bid. We've played soup in the whole beach. And when we finished with the the okay now we need to do it. For the and turbulent when fisher said it was in okinawa we need to do it for the flopping and finished with it suggests cannabis affecting the end do cannabinoid system. I want to see how it's affecting your body but don't any tools to measure that i can look on five. Six thirteen indicates how many indo candidates is really out there right so again we started to do the same thing for blandest furry biopsies or things tissues in with developmental to analyze the in the blood unless iran one hundred fifty endo kennedy different end candidate. So we it's a mess. And also the receptors used to look like there are two receptors for the academy cb cb do but we know the gp five are that we know that uber when in nineteen winnow. The gop one narrow participate that okay. I went through the whole picture. Letsie the indu- canopy. Its action Welcome into endo candidates action suit. Today may not looking with thirty eight or centers every time that we are the change so having their kind of a big picture that they can in the federal candidate may influence levin affecting human body looking on the older to get first of all. Give me the tools to ask wished and then the question is are starting to emerging. Of course it's everything is that they did just chemistry.
