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,
Most of you already know I’m an open book. I talk about everything. Whether it’s about cannabis or me… I want you to know me so you can believe what I share with you.
I was a lonely little girl growing up and didn’t engage in social events with kids my own age. It made me miss information. It isn’t that I wasn’t loved. It’s that I was like an “only child” with a single mother. I say it that way because I DO have a sister but she was raised by our grandparents in another state, about 100 miles from us. I got to see her every weekend and summer and all vacations so we know each other.
My mother worked all the time at her own fashionable dress shop called Inez’. It was couture for rich women who also needed uniforms for their kids private schools all over town. Mother was incredibly busy from dawn to late night with that shop. I got to help her with inventory and hanging clothes. There was no time left to invest in a kid so she let the school system raise me. That’s why she put me in a private girls’ Catholic school in Tulsa called Monte Cassino. And why I tell people now that mother left me to the nuns and wolves to raise.
Because our circumstances prevented me from making close friends. You see, my mother was a “kept” woman in the upper echelon of high society. And because of that, I couldn’t have friends over… nor could I be trusted not to chat about home life with other kids so I also couldn’t go to their homes.
My mother was extraordinarily beautiful. She looked like Elizabeth Taylor and fashioned herself after the most stunning movie stars of the 1950s and 60s.
She was always the Bell of the Ball and gave the most exquisite soirées! But her world was the adult world and there was really no room for a kid or bothering with kid stuff. So I missed a lot of information because of the way our relationship was and how she designed our lives around the big secret that couldn’t be discussed except with all the people who came to those fabulous parties. None of them were kids.
That must be why I question everything. And when I’m told, “Because that’s just the way it is…”, which doesn’t make sense, I’m emboldened to say, “Not anymore!”
I finally found out that there is a reason for everything. And that helps us understand the value of ideas we may not be aware of as it ages. For instance, a lot of people think there’s something wrong with cannabis, otherwise, why would the government give it a Schedule 1 rating that prohibits the use of it? Understanding how that happened opens all kinds of windows of insight that absolutely change your attitude about cannabis.
If you don’t already understand that the federal rating of cannabis originated from corruption by political hacks and oligarchs then just visit some of my older podcasts with those kind of titles… that’s a rabbit hole of evil we can avoid right now though.
I began this cannabis journey on a personal quest for relief. Although at the time…. when we were prohibited from using it… I became fascinated in why it was helping.
Then when legalization finally caught up, I turned into a one-person case study of the effects of cannabis on a variety of old lady issues, common to both men and women, like arthritis, high blood pressure, thyroid issues, IBS and gout.
About 5 years ago, just before Florida went legal, the only cannabis relief you could find was street weed. If you’re new to my show, you should know that I preach all street weed is contaminated. I say that… fully understanding the plant cannabis and how it performs naturally out in the wild.
And then I’ll tell you that there’s never been a death recorded on the planet from cannabis. So what’s the problem?
To help you understand where I fit into this industry, I decided to call myself a Shaman, a word my dictionary described as an antiquated term meaning: healer not formally trained…
I am not a doctor. I have not had any formal training in how the body performs or its interacting systems. I cannot diagnose any physical or mental or emotional issues because I have not had any training in those fields. I am completely humbled beside these titans of knowledge.
I have a clear picture of one of the biggest dangerous concerns about using cannabis and created a platform with my podcast to be the megahorn of hope for new patients learning about this live plant therapy.
I also erroneously thought (here comes the confession) that because I knew more about cannabis than most doctors on the planet… that what I was telling you about cannabis was perfectly alright.
Boy did I get a lesson I’ll never forget.
Friends, this next information will be the most valuable piece of advice I can give you about cannabis. And you should spread this word with complete certainty…
You can imagine my surprise when, after studying this live plant therapy for the past 5 years, from those cannabis doctor/scientist titans in this industry, my head got spun around on it’s axis by reading Dr. Dustin Sulak’s new book: Handbook of Cannabis for Clinicians – Principles and Practices. Now I understand… DEFINITIVELY.
I am sooooo not able to see the whole picture of your cannabis needs.
In short, I couldn’t see the forest for the trees.
There for the past 5 years I’d been studying under some of the most intense scientists in the industry about the chemical constituents in this plant and what all they do, how they originate, what their molecular actions are, what their effects are, how they can benefit and the amazing new discoveries in seizure control for children, cancer relief, and more.
I was growing more and more excited with the obvious benefits I was learning from the scientists and also feeling relief as a medical marijuana patient myself!
That enthusiasm hopefully translates into motivation for you to investigate this live plant therapy… but from now on, it will always come with a warning:
Find a qualified cannabis specialist MD or DO and take your most current medical records to them along with your list of complaints and medications.
Only the doctors can diagnose your complaints through appropriate testing. I can’t do that. And you neeeeed that! Because cannabis is a medicine.
Whether you’re getting it as street weed, otc, or from a MM dispensary. It has over 500 compounds in it that want to modify your internal chemical system in some way, shape, or form… so acting like its harmless is ridiculous.
It’s not harmless. It can have negative effects on some people and we’re only just now finding out who THOSE PEOPLE are through testing. I can’t do that either.
I’m saying it plainly now and forever more… find a doctor who knows about cannabis and can understand your previous diagnosis and adjust for Cannabinoid therapy. This is medicine you’re using…
No matter how many people are using it for “adult-use” without caution or medical knowledge, this plant has hundreds of phyto-constituents that will change the way you feel in some way.
There are sooo many clinical case study warnings in Dr. Sulak’s new book: Handbook of Cannabis for Clinicians – Principles and Practices that it is overwhelming proof of the need for a real physician or medical professional (that’s not me) to be highly involved in your cannabis therapy.
So where does that leave me and the new book I just thought I finished? I have a few more words to add to it. The same ones I just stated above. And I am soooo grateful to my teachers and medical friends who suffer my ignorance.
Let me finish by thanking those titans of medical knowledge for sharing their studies with the likes of me. More than that, they have the patience to suffer my silly uneducated questions and attitudes and still lead me graciously toward real understanding. The 3 specialists in Florida who mean so much to me because of their extraordinary cannabis knowledge and personal kindness… Dr. Genester Wilson King, ObGyn in Lake Mary area… Barry Gordon, MD down in Venice, whose FB LIVE I absolutely love, and Anthony Mazo, MD and my personal neurologist in Melbourne… and then of course, Dustin Sulak, DO up in Maine who certified me upon completion of his incredible cannabis course. Yet… I still didn’t see the whole picture until his book came out. It took me three full days of non-stop reading to get through it! I’m so proud of my lexdyxic eyes!! So full disclosure, I’m a student of Dr. Sulak’s whose book I’ve been talking about.
For those of you who are deeply interested in cannabis case studies, the mechanisms by which cannabis works, and the exquisite intimate knowledge that Dr. Sulak imparts about this live plant therapy… this is the new bible for clinicians.
Beautifully written in the precious style of Dustin Sulak’s loving nature… this book really defines the clinician’s Go-To advice for particular case studies and includes a global review of concerns to consider that only a diagnostician could summarize completely. I’m not that. I most certainly know my place now and how I can best help YOU.
GO SEE A GOOD CANNABIS SPECIALIST WITH YOUR CURRENT MEDICAL RECORDS! Be mindful of what you’re doing to your body. Take note. Communicate. And LOVE.
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.
