What is a Standard?

"Is a standard. You may have heard that term wondered what the heck is that. Do i buy a plant standard. Is that rosa standard. Is that hydrologist standard. What does this mean. This was on my mind recently ellen because somebody sent me a picture of their vegetable garden and at all four corners of their vegetable garden. They grow a cannabis plant as a standard. I have never seen that. Send you the picture. Because is first of all gorgeous. Second of all huge trunk things but we do. They live someplace where it's warm enough. That they don't have the cannabis doesn't have to come in in the window. No annual they do it as an annual you know they get stat big. Sorry i shouldn't have said that that distracted us so that all right. That's all right. So let's let's talk about what a standard is a standard basically is growing something so that it looks like a small tree. That's how i would define you prune up the limbs at the bottom of the plant as the plant grows and it may look like a lollipop. I've seen land tana's stole sold as standards and they look like know flowery lollipops on top of a trunk. You could find a rosemary. Standard as an herb. For growing indoors. It'd be much smaller. But again it still has that bare trunk at the bottom and it might be round at the top or it could be pruned into a square or diamond shape. It's actually it's a simple kind of topiary if you think about it yes it is and it's making a plant look like a small tree as you say with that bare trunk and then the top has the foliage and flowers. If it's a blooming plant many people grow tropical hibiscus as a standard in a pot on deck during the summertime and other tropical plants as well are commonly raised by at the grower as a standard and sold for container plants. Yeah and you see roses as standards. I think more often the smaller flowered roses not the giant ones and when i was growing up in new england. Lots of people grew hydrangea as standards but out in their yards not in containers and they would call them. Hydrangea trees which of course now. I want to say it's not a tree no matter how you grow it but but that was a really popular thing in new england when i was growing up. I don't know if it's still is. Oh it definitely still is now in the old days. They made those standard hydrangea by pruning ruining the lower limbs and leading one trunk Grow up now they grow the trunks. They graft whatever variety of the hype train peninsula onto the top of the trunk and so often. Now they are grafted. And you can find straight hydrangea peninsulas. As a tree form that's basically how they're referred to now at the garden center is a tree form and you can find lime lights. You can find firelight standards. Any number of varieties of the hydrangea peninsula can be purchased in that three four if people are wondering what a standard is now you

Redditors took on hedge funds over GameStop stock and won. So what now?

"Video game retailer. That's not doing business. Right now just toppled in value on friday. Game stop was worth forty three dollars a share and a bunch of people got together on read it on a message board called wall street bets and they just decided. Let's buy up game. Stop stock and push prices higher and higher now a sheriff game one three hundred and forty seven dollars. Those read it. Based investors made lots of money they have also up ended the entire stock market and bled dry a bunch of hedge funds so much so the white house and treasury now monitoring. What's going on erin. Griffith is also monitoring. What's going on as a reporter for the new york times and she joins me now a aaron. Can you explain. I the origin. There's so there's a reddit thread where people talk about. Trading on wall street stuff called wall street bets is that right right and has about two million users i think and it's not just unrooted. They're also lots of other places on social media where people are gathering talk about stocks. Obviously out there on twitter there on dischord channel which actually shut down today for reasons that are unrelated but the mets people getting together and talking about stocks and it's become extremely popular in the pandemic because While there's no sports the worse there's not a lot of gambling. People are bored and so robin hood which is a stock trading app that has a mission of democratising investing has become extremely popular over the last year. A lot of people are day trading. Now right to robin was. Yeah so basically that. That's where it started right so you can get other robinhood app and thousand dollars or five hundred dollars or you don't have to have some huge amount of money right. You go on this board now. The origin of this as i understand it was it was kind of a troll and it was a troll directed at a bunch of hedge funds had made what's called shorts. They were betting the game stopped. Stock would go down. because it's business looked imperil. does that. is that how it worker started. Yes yes basically A lot of red investors have some kind of vendetta against shortsellers. I'm part of this comes from elon. Musk tesla is one of the most shorted most bet against stocks. And he has. This kind of say is very anti short-selling and So there's kind of manipulation that you can do where if the stock goes way up the short seller's hedge funds that are betting against the company betting on its docks no down. They get squeezed and the higher. The stock goes the more you know. The more the more money they're losing it can become really ugly for them and so they have the the traders know this and they kind of turned it into a game. This is the first time happened before of till ray. Which is a cannabis. Had that happen to them before. But it's definitely the first time it's happened at this scale right so that's interesting. I don't think i that elon. Musk doesn't like shorts. And a lot of people that run companies don't like shorts because what shortsellers do is say we bet on. You're gonna you're doing bad and our selves can drive your stock down. So they go and they look at this stock game. Stop that a lot of wall street hedge funds and said you're in trouble. We're going to bet against you. And they were like we'll take the other side of the bet. We'll rally to rescue the day game. Stop stock and am i right that there's like multiple hedge funds that have now lost billions of dollars on this. I don't know how many have have lost and how much. But there's there's definitely. At least one hedge fund. Melvin capital that had to take a three billion dollar bailout a from a fellow fund over rumors that by the going out of business. They denied that anyone who is short on the stock shorting. A stock is extremely risky. And so anyone who had that position is is definitely hurting right now and tweeted about drawing more attention to it in now all this news coverage the fact that the stock was halted nine times yesterday. The trading was because of so much volatility is drawing more attention to it getting more people sort of rallying in this area absurd mischievous game. So here's what i don't quite get like. At a certain point. I guess this started to get momentum of its own because it doesn't seem like the number of people who've downloaded the robin hood app and are on this reddit. Thread kinnock possibly account for the volume. That is pouring into this stock. Yeah i think. That's a good point. And i think a lot of people are sort of framing like oh this is the little guys rising up against the evil hedge funds and i mean that is worth noting that the hedge funds are also in wall street. Beds there look. They're following this. They're looking at what people are doing. And there are definitely enough people who are day trading on robin to to kind of move. The market share significant are move the market cap significantly of small or thinly traded companies. So big investors are following this now too. I mean you saw a who's very prominent. Silicon valley investor. Tweet that he was following it to i. There's probably some some big money playing in this alongside the read the verdict

Sexing Male and Female Plants

Sexing Male and Female Plants

"Our diocese plants. Well basically we're talking males and females here that there are some plants that have flowers that contain both male and female parts for example and they pollinate themselves and then there are other plants that some of the plants have male flowers and produce pollen and some of the plants have female flowers and those are the ones that get pollinated by the male. So maybe the most familiar example of a d. Shis plant that most people. Even if they didn't have a garden or love plants would be familiar with is holly we all know that the female holly plants produce those red berries and the male holly plants sit quietly in the background doing their duty. The male sprawl out. I know for most tallies. The males are not attractive plant as females. They're kind of e and whatever but they do the job right. They get the job done. They are necessary yes in terms of pollination and producing those berries. I think also more and more people are familiar with the idea of male and female plants because of cannabis cannabis is a diocese plant. Right and It is a plant that males and females. Now unlike hawley for cannabis growers. In less they are breeding cannabis. They don't want the males. They don't want their females to be pollinated and why it. Why is that because once. The female flowers are pollinated. They don't go on to produce bigger more cannabinoid rich bud. So they're they're producing seeds instead of exactly so for those who grow cannabis. They want female plants not male plants but another plant. That is dialysis that has male and female that people only want males are gingko. No no no no. No you say this. As if it's true for everyone. If i could be guaranteed of buying a female gingko tree i would be all over that because for nari gingko feeds are frigging delicious and and the reason that many people don't want female is that the fruit is stinky. Yes it is smells horrible. This is often used as an urban tree Because it's lovely and it doesn't get too large and you know it has a lot to recommend it an urban tree the last thing you want to smell fruit walk. You know in the washington. Dc area if it turns out that because you can't tell what sex ginko is until it gets old enough to fruit so you plan to all these beautiful street trees and then ten years down the road people in the neighborhood start complaining about the stinky fruit in the dc area if enough people at a certain percentage in the neighborhood complain the city will come in and cut down the female gingko really criminal. Well you know what. I hoping you were going to say. I was hoping you. We're going to say that the city would come in and pick all the fruits when he was young so that it didn't fall on the sidewalk and be a problem but no now that's never going to happen. What other plants to that are familiar to people. But that might surprise them. Begonias begonia dialysis so the male and the female flowers of the begonias. They're both pretty. But if you look at them you can most definitely see how they are different and another thing that people might not realize is dialysis is asparagus. If you grow asparagus in your garden and you notice at the end of the season that some of those plants those pretty little red seeds on the fernie. Franz those are female asparagus plants. So asparagus is another one. You know. those are two pretty common plant. I think people just don't realize that they're on separate male and female plants. Asparagus is one plant. That people often prefer to buy males and that is because the females of course put a certain amount of attention into making needs and the males put more attention into growing more shoots and so when you purchase slips of asparagus plants to start an asparagus bed. There are many companies that offer all male plants.

Do Some Fabrics Make Body Odor Worse?

"Of athletic wear and outdoors gear is labeled with claims. That it'll help wick away sweat and keep you spelling as fresh as if you just stepped of the shower in this episode. We look at how those claims can possibly be true and how they can sometimes fall through. Pay their brain steph. Lorraine bogo bomb here. If you're preparing for a hike especially one that involves sleeping under the stars. Every last than you pack should be questioned. Will you need rain gear. One walking stick or two which freeze dried. Snacks are actually tasty enough to eat. One essential rule from experienced hikers is no cotton clothing. Clothes made of cotton can act as a sponge. The material soaks up sweat and holds moisture next to the skin which eliminates the insulating effect of the cotton skin irritation and eventually leads to copious amounts of body odor body odor isn't a personal affront. Temperature becomes high enough to cause certain. Glands secrete fluid onto the surface of the skin is at risk for emanating at least a little bit and it isn't without purpose sweat produced by the akron. Glands that cover most of the body helps regulate body temperature while the milky or fluid released by the epa korean glands. The armpits and groin area is a signal that the body is under stress. African glands are primarily responsible for body odor and although akron. Glands secrete primarily odorless sweat. The smell produced by this sweat changes over time perspiration acts as a magnet tha bacteria on the skin and these bacteria use it as fuel to multiply. When the growing numbers of bacteria metabolize sweat they produce a smelly byproduct commonly called body odor. Clearly cotton isn't the right choice for working up a sweat. Since it can actually make body odor worse. But what about other types of fabrics do all fabrics increase a person's propensity to develop body odor the key to using clothing to prevent or lessen body odor lows in the fabrics ability to release sweat quickly before bacteria can begin to feast on it. There are natural and man-made fabrics that expertly wick moisture away from the skin to the edge of the material where it can evaporate other fabrics however we'll trap moisture in the fabric. And on the skin and make body odor worse a fabrics ability to transmit and released moisture is known as breathe ability. Which is the common term for the moisture vapor transmission rate or mvp tr. The mvp are calculating. How many grams of moisture move through a square meter of fabric in two thousand four hours. Generally the greater the mvp are the less likely the fabric is to absorb and retain odor causing moisture. You may be thinking great. Now all i have to do is find clothing label breathable and be. Oh we'll be a problem of the past not so fast. There's not an industry standard regarding breath ability nearly any label can carry the term usually preceded by words like or extremely. This means you'll need to arm yourself with information about specific fabrics rather than relying on label hype as a guide natural fabrics created from the fibers of animals. Bugs or plants are a good place to start. You'll want to steer clear of one hundred percent cotton fabrics because they take a long time to dry and will allow body odor to bloom. In the meantime this is largely. Because one hundred percent cotton fabrics are composed of fibers that swell with moisture and thereby reduce the pores of the fabric of other natural fabrics absorb and release sweat quickly including hemp fabric woven from these stem fibers of the cannabis. Sativa plant and linen women from flax stems. Well it sounds counter intuitive to wear wool to prevent body odor. This natural fiber is an excellent choice will absorb up to thirty six percent of its weight in moisture without feeling wet and will dry quickly. We'll also releases minute amounts of body heat as it absorbs moisture so it will help keep you cool. Plus we'll is naturally antibacterial which means you can wear it. Sweating it and keep wearing it sometimes. For consecutive days without reading when it comes to making body odor worse synthetic fabrics tend to trap odors at a greater rate the natural fabrics although many of these manmade fabrics like polyester are quick to wick moisture away from the skin and equally quick to dry. Their construction can up the stink quotient within the wave of synthetic moisture waking fabrics are notches designed to pool. Manute amounts of sweat as it. Transfers from the inner layer to the outer layer of the fabric. The concept is a good one as the moisture will generally evaporate once it reaches the fabrics outer layer. The problem is that as sweat collects in the nooks and crannies of the fabric on its way to freedom. It is devoured by bacteria that have themselves made home in those same recesses. This traps body odor. Within the fabric to reduce rowdy odors look for static fabrics that haven't an added antimicrobial ingredient for example the addition of silver polyester or spandex fibers can help prevent body. Odor from accumulating silver nanoparticles. That's particles so small that eighty thousand of them could fit within. The diameter of a human hair can be integrated into synthetic fabric when they get wet. The silver nanoparticles released silver ions that initially slow the growth of odor causing bacteria and eventually kill them off. Altogether some fabrics are infused with a different type of odor inhibiting agent molecules of volcanic ash. The ash molecules have a pore size that similar to that of an odor molecule when the to meet the odor molecule is adsorb and trapped within the ash molecule this prevents the odor molecule from releasing its characteristic smell until the fabric is washed in warm water to prevent body odor. Look for clothing made from fabrics. That will help keep you dry and have the added might of antimicrobial helpers and don't forget the antiperspirant or

How does Puerto Rico become a state?

"It's common for people to lump puerto rican statehood and dc statehood in with each other and there are some parallels. Like part of rico. Dc is more populous than the states of vermont and wyoming yet. It enjoys no meaningful representation in congress and like puerto rico. This lack of independence has often put the district at the mercy of petty battles for political clout considered former congressman jason. Chafe it's who was elected to represent district in southeastern utah to the dismay of dc's liberal city council. This conservative politicians spent a significant chunk of two thousand fifteen. Nc thousand sixteen obstructing cities decision to legalise cannabis and to authorize euthanasia in certain circumstances. Schafer's threatened mayor bowser with jail. If she allowed legal marijuana she allowed it. I have a lot of things to do here. In the district of columbia me. Being in jail wouldn't be a good thing. Meanwhile puerto ricans reeling from hurricane. Maria could only watch as senate. Republicans held up the passage of a robust disaster. Eight bill for weeks on top of that. The economic fate of the island hinges on a bankruptcy like process established by congress called presa promise stands for puerto rico oversight management and economic stability act. You'll notice is not a perfect bill in the right direction. Those nielsen bus. Though john this it s mesa people born in puerto. Rico are us citizens receive a social security number at birth and are eligible for an american passport. They can relocate to the continental. Us and work freely the do not have to deal with the barriers that apply to most immigrants and yet their citizenship is conditional. Even if puerto ricans on the island wanted to vote for the president of the united states last november third the constitution forbids it and despite counting three point one million residents. So that's more than the dakotas en vermont combined. Puerto rico is not entitled to voting senators or to a commensurate number of house representatives. And as we get into later in this episode this is far from being the only tangible consequence of the island's status as a territory of the united states which brings us back to the big fundamental question that freeze puerto rico on november third should puerto rico be admitted immediately into the union as a state. Yes or no. On election day. Puerto ricans voted in favor of becoming the fifty first state. The vote was non-binding and would need the approval of congress to push statehood forward Directly voted in in an absolute majority more than fifty two percent to pursue stated that result sets the wheels in motion for the island's governor to appoint a commission which in turn will develop a transition plan for congress and the president's review that same day. These voters also handed a narrow victory to gubernatorial candidate. Pedro pierluisi from the new progressive party. While he's opponent. Carlos delgado favored the status quo. Pierre-louis is one of puerto rico's fiercest advocates for statehood here. He is in february. Two thousand fifteen introducing statehood bill before congress at the time. Pierluigi was puerto rico's resident commissioner. Which is a nonvoting seat in the house of representatives. Bipartisan bill introducing today flows from and builds upon the two thousand twelve referendum and the federal appropriation enacted in response to that referendum. In other words this bill is being filed now because the strategic foundation is firmly in place every action i take is designed to advance the statehood calls because it is beyond dispute that territory star status is the main source of wrinkles grave economic and social problems. There's no question that the united states treatment of puerto rico as a territory of second-class citizens has caused very tangible damage. But what must come next may not be as simple as deciding. Yes or no on statehood as both senator mitch. Mcconnell and governor elect purely suggest in fact november third marked puerto rico's six referendum on the question of statehood previous attempts have been mired in controversy and bigger opposed for example the two thousand seventeen referendum drew a ninety seven percent majority for statehood pretty clear-cut right but actually voter participation was abysmal that year. Thanks to a very effective very organized. Boycott participation was hired as time around but opponents of the referendum have argued that the question was stacked that it may not have been obvious to voters that a no steve hood was in fact a yes on independence or some alternative status opponents say the ladder deserves consideration that distinction between dc and rico matters a great deal. No one is seriously arguing that the nation's capital should become an independent nation. Instead the concerns over self rule truly boil down for dc statehood or no statehood. Not so with purdah rico. And it all comes down to the island's history joining me. Today is in is auto a civil rights lawyer at the center for constitutional rights and the author of. It's time to talk about cuba and puerto rico to an essay published in issue. Twenty seven of current affairs magazine angelo. Welcome to deconstructed high grabbing to understand. Why puerto rico faces a much more complicated question than statehood or no steve hood. I think it's important to grapple a bit with its relationship with the rest of the country in your recent essay. You argue that. Puerto rico gives us a sense of what cuba might look like today if it was still under american control. What is the context in which puerto rico becomes. Us territory rico. Became a territory. Much like cuba fell under united states. Monitor ship dominion through the eighteen. Ninety eight spanish-american war in which the united states took possession of guam had dominion over the philippines. And of course cuban puerto rico

"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.

Thc in at all unless you're being drug tested at your work or in the military or something like that but a little tiny bit of thc has been shown to be too can be very helpful and you're not gonna feel it. 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. And the other thing is that slowly but surely in from other countries and just a teeny tiny bit in the united states. We are getting studies. Look this whole.

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.

Milligrams usually won't cause a problem with other drugs but again you wanna make sure that you're not causing drug to become toxic or ineffective by using cbd high cd especially with other medications those contra indications that you wanna avoid you mentioned your early career in pediatrics and this up in several interviews that i've done. I did one a couple of weeks ago with a pediatric nurse. Sanjay gupta was there with his cnn. Special i think was called. We'd run two thousand eleven or so where they identified epilepsy. Pediatric epilepsy and i think autism is kind of related to that and that seemed to be like a tipping point. Have you noticed that in terms of public acknowledgement that. This is a legitimate medicine. Absolutely dr gupta came out and said this is why i changed my mind. I used to be against cannabis cannabis. He shared that story about little charlotte figgy in colorado who had a severe pediatric epilepsy caused by genetic syndrome. And basically she was sent home to die and her mother Managed to get a hold of some. Cbd plant a cannabis plant material Got it turned into oil and gave it to her and it changed everything For her slowed her seizures. Down stop magic. It's just that it appears that. Cbd you know has all these different targets in the brain that help with what we call neuro excited tori conditions. And there's no question. That kind of dr gupta put the mainstream approval there. It was after that special which i actually believe. It was august twenty thirteen after that. Special that i started Getting inundated with phone calls. You know do you see children and remember my background's pediatrics and pediatric er and critical care. So i'm very comfortable with children. Who are ill. And who are on a multitude of other medicines to have complex issues and so i just started seeing those kids because they really had no other place to go. And i had already seen a few kids that were having a good result. The big problem at the time was actually getting a hold of good quality Cbd medicine cannabis medicine. It's interesting. The market responded didn't look how quickly now there's you know hundreds of Cannabis cbd cannabis products on the market. It's sort of opened the door. I mean who could be against a medicine that can save little kids from seizure to me. It opened the door cape. It's good for that maybe people talking about. Ptsd it's good for that. And you know when. I look at your book and i looked at the table contents. I think there was twenty six conditions that that you wrote about from anti-anxiety to traumatic brain injury and in a lot of things in between it's obviously a very versatile medicine to yes it is and it's funny because there are some people say. Oh how can cannabis do all that. And look i'm the first to say it's not a panacea..

"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..

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. Bars of of cannabis in interpreting profiles in you know, and then there are other people will say no I. Don't want that..

"The physical. Challenges of getting old? The chronic pain in the you know the insomnia. All those things cannabis can help with, but I think also. When? 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. Bomb on my knees, and if I do think I'm GonNa, have insomnia, sometimes if I have a day of anxiety, take a half a gummy like a five milligram Indika gummy and I sleep really well. 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. Feel any kind of intoxication. And I think that you know he helps them understand that that that that's. Definitely achievable and and also I think..

"So there are the Israeli. Government actually encourages and. Provides in financial incentives for for startups in the cannabis base. When you think about it, cannabis has applications for almost everyone as you as you mentioned we all have an endo can have annoyed system and because of Dr. Mushrooms Work and others. We now understand you don't have to get high if you don't want to. There's a lot of cannabinoid have different properties that are anti inflammatory and many other things that are beneficial right so as that research continues in Israel and in the US. Do you see the stigma abating in DC legalization coming closer? I think in Israel. They were in. You know they have a medical cannabis program for for a long time. And I think that. In terms of legalization in the United States well. Maybe maybe the breakers that come out of Israel will contribute to changing attitudes here in the United States. Is You know it's a tough nut here to crack for so many reasons but. But what an interesting one, they've more interesting researchers WHO's working in Israel and who I hope to be writing about soon. Is Professor David Eerie at the TAP NEON and he's. He's done work a lot of work, really groundbreaking research on cancer. And looking at the different cabinets, and and to see how they're affected for different types of cancers, and you know he this is a wide open area, and it's it's just a huge undertaking to because the the sensitivities to the different combinations of canals for different types of cancer. It's it's just really staggering, but. I heard him speak the other day, and he was talking about the the interviewer asked him what he was excited about. What was most interesting for him, and he said Oh. I I'm just really excited about the work on Like nor degenerative diseases in Alzheimer's. And so of course he might yours pipped up immediately because. These are the the conditions have for the population that I'm most interested in which is baby and the elderly and so I do plan on hopefully interviewing him about that in just a little further to get his insights on why he is excited about that. that area so that should be an article? Hopefully that I'll I'll have in the coming weeks. Yeah, well, there's definitely a lot of interest in my listeners. Probably know in my family I've had Alzheimer's. Will I haven't yet, but my mom had had it in a unfortunately. Pass away from it and I have direct experience in that world where there's so many pharmaceutical agents that are. Are prescribed a Lotta Times. They don't seem to do any good. So the utility of something that's organic and non toxic and doesn't have that side effect profile in could possibly give some relief is really exciting. Well I've I've had I've explored this issue with with a number of people in really. I started I think that one of the first conversation was with the family member who? Who just was distraught over saying his father. who had you know had once been a you know the family patriarch, and was now really suffering from terrible agitation sleeplessness with dementia, and you know the the. Facility was in West. Give they just trying so many different drugs, and and nothing was helping him, and finally one of the grandchildren brought in a cannabis gummy, and gave it to their grandfather, and he just for the first night for first time in New Year's Eve. He had a good night's sleep. The next day was communicative. and. and. The family was so moved that they they decided to fund research on using cannabis to treat the symptoms of..

"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.

"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.
