Welcome to the Cannaba Verum podcast, the cannabis truth podcast. I speak the language of cannabis freely and uncensored, while educating my audience on the safe use of this live Plant Therapy. You should know what’s in your cannabis, what’s good and what’s not. It does not come with an FDA stamp of approval yet, using cannabis mindfully, as medication is a different concept in the healthcare philosophy of the past 100 years. There’s a lot to learn and consider cannabis is not dangerous, but it is not harmless, either. This is honey Smith walls, a 21st century cannabis shaman here to explain the language of cannabis in historical, political, and scientific terms, so you can make educated decisions about the medicine you ingest.
Hello my friends,
I get this question a lot… what’s the difference between cannabis and marijuana and hemp?
Well, both hemp and marijuana ARE cannabis. They both have over 400 compounds but one is psychoactive (marijuana) and hemp is not. You can consider hemp and marijuana sisters. They in the same family but wildly different. They both have sativa and indica varieties, they’re both medicinal and have overlapping properties like anti-inflammation and anti-bacteria, and so on. But the biggest difference is how and what we use those two cannabis products for. Hemp is soooo much better at performance for some things than Marijuana. And vice versa.
Now when I say Hemp… the main chemovar in it is Cannabidiol… CBD. So hemp products, CBD products, are really going to stomp out inflammatory issues that are the root cause of other painful problems.
But Marijuana is gonna get rid of those ridiculous looping thoughts and all that PTSD we suffer from war or bad relationships or accidents and loss. Hemp can’t do that.
Hemp can calm anxiety like gangbusters. But it takes Marijuana to cut through intense nausea and acute pain from cancer.
So you see the strategy involved and all the more reason to know what you’re ingesting.
As February blows through Black History month into March and Women’s Suffrage… I want to continue the theme of becoming better people… of recognizing strangers as the same kind of human being you see in the mirror. Of realizing that every body has baggage, issues, moods, misery, and joy all wrapped up in facial expressions and unrealistic fantasies in the stories we tell ourselves without truth or reality.
I listen to several podcasts for history and entertainment and one of them is about cannabis. It’s called Great Moments in Weed History and you can find it wherever you listen to podcasts. There are two hosts Abdullah and Bean who have such a joyful presence and are so relatable. They won’t seem very serious at first but their content will blow you away. If you like history with all the juicy details and cliffhangers of a soap opera, listen to these guys while you’re walking the alligator.
I grew up hearing Billie Holliday’s music and singing her stuff all the time. I was only 5 when she died in 1959. Then Lady Sings the Blues came out when I was a teenager and I learned about her life and suffering at the hands of the U.S. Attorney General Harry Anslinger, who was a Natzi sympathizer and made a cruel example out of her because of his racist hatred of all people of color.
Abdullah and Bean take a journalistic look at the life of Billie Holliday and her struggles to survive being Black and talented and a woman.
Not only did the most aggressive and powerful US policeman turn his eye on her, he intended to scare the hell out of every other person of color to subdue any uprising or protest. His open treatment of a 90 pound young black singer of fame and fortune was psychotic and totally legal. And there was nobody to stop him.
But wait till you hear the revenge exacted on him after his own lonely death.
Abdullah and Bean weave a great story with so many juicy details you’ll stay till the very end for the delightful surprise.
The real lesson is about white men wielding terrible power upon people of color… That ideology must be eradicated from the hearts of those who believe… IN-equality is right.
Violent abusive controlling behavior is not necessary for a society to exist. But because it does, if we want to change anything, we must look at our own behavior and qualify it.
If you’re not reading something pertinent to changing how we react to each other as humans then you’re not doing your part to correct the injustices our society suffers. We cannot stop thinking only to perform as lemmings to anybody who calls us to the edge.
Expanding what you know affects the way you think. So pick up a book or listen to an audible or find some good podcasts to hear while you’re driving or exercising.
When you’re done listening to Abdullah and Bean on Great Moments in Weed History about Billie Holliday, check out their incredible saga of John Lennon vs The United States. It will totally blow your mind.
So before I let you go to find that other podcast, I just want to remind you that we must be our own true guardians. This time in Weed History is still the Wild Wild West of Cannabis with no FDA approvals, rare conditions for lab-testing products appropriately for contamination, and assumptions that don’t prove true. We simply must learn how to protect ourselves and I’m here to teach you how. It’s easy.
Before you buy any cannabis product, whether it’s dispensary or over-the-counter, you simply ask for the 3rd party lab-test proving there’s no contamination.
That’s it. Make them prove that product is safe for you to ingest. If they can’t prove it, put that product down and go spend your hard-earned money on one that won’t harm you. Cannabis contamination is a slow killer for those with compromised immune systems. Are you fat? Have high B/P? IBS? Chronic Fatigue? Chrone’s Disease? Fibro? Arthritis? Have sleep issues? Terrible diet? All these things we suffer as humans mean that our immune systems are not well. And that’s my point. If you’re not healthy as a horse and you continue using contaminated products, it’s gonna getcha. It got me and it took me 3 years to figure it out. I was smoking contaminated street weed from the same dealer who didn’t know and wouldn’t have cared that he was selling contaminated product.
My beef with the Adult-Use and Grow Your Own bunch is that they don’t seem to consider contamination an issue. But the autopsies of dead cannabis users say it was the Aspergillus mold from the cannabis that coated their lungs and killed them.
So whenever you go to purchase cannabis products, whether from a Marijuana Dispensary or an over-the-counter Hemp store, make certain to get into the habit of asking for proof of the 3rd-party lab test. And make them prove what’s in the product such as what the label says… and what’s NOT! Like contamination.
OK… Check out the true story of famous blues singer, Billie Holliday and the U.S. Attorney General of the day going after her on Great Moments in Weed History wherever you listen to podcasts.
And what are you gonna look for every single time you purchase cannabis???
That’s right… a 3rd-party lab test to prove what’s in it and what’s not!
See ya next time.
Pax Vobiscum, Yall.

You’ve been listening to another Cannaba Verum podcast with 21st century cannabis shaman Honey Smith Walls, about the importance of using safe hemp and marijuana products. Unless otherwise proven by a reputable third party lab test, please be advised that all street weed is contaminated. It may do grave harm to a patient with a delicate immune system. I challenge you to check the veracity of my statements in each episode by checking the medical citations posted on my blog at Cannaba Verum.com.
