Episode 43 - The Four Reasons That Medical Cannabis Isn't as Popular as Aspirin -- I'm on the Hot Seat in this Episode

There are four reasons why medical cannabis is not being used to its full potential, especially for chronic conditions like pain, anxiety and insomnia. The first two reasons are easily understood, high prices and limited access. Most patients can’t afford the hundreds of dollars per month costs that cannabis meds incur and many medical states make access difficult by limiting the conditions it can be used for.

Episode 41 - The Hippie Speedball A/K/A How to Using Cannabis to Bring our Minds and Bodies into Flow States

The term “flow” was first coined in 1975 and is defined as a high state of functioning in which you lose sense of self, time and effort. It’s that state when you feel as though you’re being carried along by a water current or as if you’re skiing a course of moguls, every move, every turn flawlessly executed without thought....


Episode 40 - How to Access Your Brain’s Personal Stash of Pleasure Chemicals

This interview with Dr. Julie Holland marks the 40th podcast in the Brave New Weed series and it’s one of our best yet. As a podcaster I can often map out the route a discussion will take, but this conversation with Julie ebbed and flowed in the most delightfully surprising ways. I never knew where it was leading. What I did know was that every turn it took was more interesting than the last. In this episode, we discuss: Tune in and share it widely. As cannabis becomes more mainstream...
