Honey Smith Walls 0:07
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 Frens,
I’m so amused at the youthful podcasters and cannabis jockeys on YouTube trying to describe the vibe they’re experiencing while on this new journey of cannabis use and discovery. You can tell right off the bat who considers it medication and who just wants to get high.
I love getting high. The feeling is so much nicer than getting drunk. You don’t have the inclination to do stupid things out of the ordinary when you’re high on cannabis like you do when you’re inebriated. You’re not promised a hangover or headache or confusion about what happened.
I never bother telling you about the specific names of products or even specific brands very often… because it’s medicine. I don’t talk about the brand of high blood pressure pills I take either. Because I know there’s a million different kinds and who cares anyway? Those too, effect us differently as patients. I wouldn’t expect what I take to work for my girlfriend, necessarily. I let the doctor decide which product to try on me. Because he knows more about it. And the names of those big Pharma products are just as stupid as the cannabis varieties the companies give their products.
A lot of cannabis podcast shows begin with a warning to turn this podcast off if you’re not 18 years old! What kid under 18 is gonna do that when the subject is pot and they talk about it the way they do? And why would they tell kids not to listen about cannabis? They act like it’s not good for us or something… like they don’t think we should even hear about it. Like a Prohibitionist. Do you forbid your children other medical information? Did you turn off the tv when all those commercials came on for pharmaceutical drugs? Did you wait to talk about aspirin to your children until they were 18? I don’t get it. Is it like the sex we don’t talk about to our kids? Sooooo forbidden that we can’t even discuss it openly in front of children? But we let them play with guns and watch a steady diet of murder mysteries.
A lot of podcast shows talking about cannabis have child-like voices promoting upcoming segments which bothers me terribly… who are they trying to appeal to??? Why use a child’s excited cartoon voice to describe a cannabis product and effect?
With questions like, “What is your favorite 1:1 cannabis cultivar?”, it’s no wonder the confusion is stacking higher than ever. What the hell is he asking? 1:1 means as much CBD to THC and both of those are cultivars.
Celebrating “stoners from tv history” like Cheech & Chong only propagates the hippie revolution and using cannabis to just puffpuffpass to get high will continue to be a fearful act for people who don’t understand or use the product.
That whole idea is without medicinal mindfulness and cannabis is medicine… if it isn’t being used commercially to build or make something. Those who just want to get high without the mindfulness that cannabis is medication are in for a big surprise when they find out what’s in it and how it effects your bodily functions. Or how it COULD effect your grandmother’s bodily functions differently than yours from the same kind of product and amount. Your adventure on that same product could be wildly different than hers.
The recreational argument just seems to ignore the medicinal argument. The recreational market doesn’t seem to warn customer/patients about the negative effects of THC or adverse reactions from some patients. Their whole philosophy to sell more pot defies medicinal values and cannabis philosophy to ‘start low and go slow’ with micro-dosing.
Their hurry to infuse edibles for the market will no doubt cause a lot more pain and confusion when patients overuse because they didn’t understand dosing or titration and waiting for data before increasing a dose. When the industry makes candy-like products that un-accustomed patients are using like popcorn then it falls upon us to correct the issue with regulation and compliance.
We DO need big government and good regulation to organize so many millions of people and the way we live with each other on this planet. Even ants have organization. We must as well… or only a few will govern for control, not for the good of all. We must organize fairly and make corruption of the heart and mind our sin of the past.
Now after saying all that, please don’t mistake my opinions of a youthful philosophy of fun and relaxation as wrong… I completely believe in the ability of this plant to relax and uplift a patient’s quality of life, immediately.
But that patient wanted to change their mental perspective or physical condition by using cannabis. What is the source of that product? Cannabis has over 400 compounds in it about which they most likely are not educated.
Would you put over 400 compounds down your throat for any other medication without knowing what was in it and what it was going to do to you? It just doesn’t make sense.
Now consider all the contamination in that product, since you didn’t ask for a 3rd party lab report on what you’re about to ingest! Now think about that concentrated vape pen cartridge you just bought for $80.00 and all the concentrated contamination like pesticides and herbicides and more as well.
Frens, all street weed is contaminated. None of it comes with a 3rd party lab test to find out if its clean weed. And I’m telling you, if your immune system is damaged or weakened in any way, poisoning yourself slowly in micro amounts will eventually kill you. And if you’re buying CBD over the counter, you absolutely MUST check for the 3rd party lab test before ingesting that product!
It doesn’t matter who’s famous name is on the product, how professionally it was produced, or where it came from… if it does not have a 3rd party lab test, consider it contaminated. If that company doesn’t make the lab test their selling point for that product then they are not a good company to buy from. Lab testing is costly for a company but it gains trust and wins patient loyalty which pays off in the long run. And companies who lab test proudly display their product lab results. Break
You may be an adult who doesn’t believe you have a need to go the whole medical marijuana doctor and card and dispensary route…. You may believe that your home grown weed is good enough and hopefully you won’t get caught… you may believe the stuff your cousin brings in from Colorado is safe enough for you…. after all, it’s from Colorado. You may trust the dealer you’ve been using for years because you don’t recognize any signal of harm and his products are ‘primo’ anyway…top shelf so to speak, no stems or seeds and you can get an ounce for about $400.00… way cheaper than dispensary prices. But you don’t know what’s in it. And you don’t know any labs you’d feel safe taking some of your illegal product to for testing.
Look, we have to realize that although cannabis is not dangerous, it is also not harmless. Add contamination to the equation and now we DO have dangerous in the mix. Never a death on the planet from cannabis. But all kinds of autopsies from cancer patients with weakened immune systems showing death from aspergillos mold in the street cannabis they used to relieve nausea from cancer treatments.
If cannabis isn’t grown with clean standards and conditions the same way all other ingestibles for human consumption is, whether it’s intended for recreation or medicine, then we are doing a great disservice to society.
It doesn’t matter that you don’t want to call yourself a patient on cannabis. If you’re using cannabis, it is giving you aid or relief. It is controlling pain and inflammation within your body and changing your thoughts. Whether you are aware or not, it is making cellular decisions inside your body and your molecules are reacting in positive ways you cannot begin to imagine. That’s why you like it and want more whenever you’d like a little ‘pick me up’ or something to help you just get over the day. You may not call that being a patient, but when you get clinical results from using cannabis, even for just those unarticulated reasons, you’ll feel better about the adjectives you use around this product.
In my humble opinion, everybody is a patient. From the moment they’re born… to their passing. Time to realize we all need chemical help throughout life… to survive. And some are a lot better for us than others.
Thank you for joining me today to talk about the philosophy of cannabis medicine. I hope your next encounter with clean cannabis is full of joy and peace.
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.
