    This is really interesting, but I have to say Im still quite confused. I live in the UK, and I have used CBD for both pain and anxiety periodically. I can say that I did a lot of research into the companies that were reputable, and they were also fairly expensive, aswell as effective. I was wondering if you had heard of Dr Philip Blair? He is a former military physician, and now a physician in family medicine. Also a big supporter of CBD, not the one mentioned ?Epidiolex here. I dont know what he thinks about that !. But how can another Dr, a formidable practitioner, (albeit not a Psychiatrist) have such opposing views? In terms of liver issues, he states it can actually be used to help repair the liver, at a dose of between 30/60mg's. So I would be really interested if you could maybe do something with him on CBD? After all, its not going to go away. I agree that it can induce an almost 'spacey' feeling, which was exactly my experience with CBD, when I took at obviously too high a dose the first time. Truly hope you can maybe do something with Dr Blair, I think it would be invaluable

    CBD is awesome, but have you tried some good kratom ever? for me even way better for anxiety, lack of energy and focus. But, the quality makes a difference, farmed one is just not anything like the original wildly grown one. And here in Indonesia we got only one project that sources and supplies real wild grown kratom, name is Borneo Energy, some kind of charity program. More than recommendable! Can find it from

    This episode is very focused on marijuana, not really CBD.

    I am an RN medical cannabis consultant. Nurses are perfectly suited to be coaches and educators without the need to have to go to the doctor to get this information. Doctors can work with certified Rns in the community to provide education and support and properly dose.

    I’ve been trying a Nature’s Tru 500 mg CBD gummy dissolved under the tongue once a week and I can say that it has helped tremendously with my PTSD, sleep, anxiety and anxiety based IBS-D. I’ve always had rebound effects from benzodiazapines for IBS-D – if I stop taking them, two days later my diarrhea is worse but I don’t have this with CBD.

    One perspective you didn't notice or comment on in regards to your perception of cannabis marketing targeting low income areas, is that those populations generally have no or very limited access to health care or treatments and often have to self medicate and self treat. With that perspective and the violence and self harm also associated with alcohol and opiate dependency, cannabis would be a far better choice for community use recreationally, especially if people could grow their own (improving access) as well as medical self treatment. Restricting an herb to medical dispensaries only again only ensures that people that need help won't have access.

    Cannabis should be the first thing parents try after/or in conjunction with psychotherapy , there is an inclination to go straight to pharmaceuticals which do more harm than cannabis will

  9. xLaxSolventlessHerbalist says

    This individual with psychosis , may have been experiencing a repression of feelings, not based on cannabis but previously learned avoidant behavior , avoiding things enough will cause an influx of emotions that can be described as psychosis when the individual has no coping mechanisms

  10. xLaxSolventlessHerbalist says

    From a mental health perspective it seems in normal individuals with no history of mental illness , the thc is unveiling cognitive dissonance , with this phenomenon you see discrepancy in the way you behave and think , causing an uncomfortable sense of self , this is not a bad thing , most people don’t take the time to notice these processes , if we are able to experience this cognitive dissonance and change our thoughts and behaviors for the better then the anxiety dissipates

    Thanks for attempting to talk about MC. So much to cram into a 48 minute discussion and so much that was not even addressed. In my own efforts to control pain, anxiety, PTSD, and gut issues, I have found help with CBD oil, edibles, as well as smoking flowers with a moderate amount of THC. I was super lucky to get hooked up with a collective (pharmacy) that is involved in private research in California. I got excellent advice on how to dose Medical Cannabis appropriately. It's much different – and much less quantity – that using cannabis recreationally. Certainly, adolescents should not be using cannabis without strict supervision, let alone recreationally. I was witness to a young adult male who had an episode and paramedics had to be called. He was awake but unresponsive from one hit of cannabis. Unsure of his medical history with psychotropic drugs, but this may have been a factor. So, this can happen, although this is the only time I have personally seen it.

    What was not even touched on is research that shows humans have an endocannabinoid system. Many herbs used medicinally contain similar compounds as cannabis, such as terpenes. That's part of the reason why they do work.

    I still agree that more research is needed but as someone who has allergic reactions and weird side effects that are worse than the symptoms I am trying to treat to practically every drug I have ever attempted to take… MC is a viable option to help alleviate symptoms so I can have some kind of quality of life, along with homeopathics, herbs and vitamin supplements.
