Cannaba Verum 114 Deanna Bigham
Welcome to the Cannaba Verum Podcast, the cannabis truth podcast.
I speak the language of cannabis freely and uncensored while educating my audience on 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.
Honey Smith Walls 1:22
Hey, my friends. I’m presenting another woman in weed today named Deanna Bigham.
I’ve gotta say that right. Let me try it for the 20th time. I don’t know why I’m so tongue tied. Her name is Deanna Bigham, And she’s a great woman in weed I want to present to you. Oh, I want to introduce her. Oh, I just want you to meet her. Anyway, she’s in the trenches of a Texas hospital with cannabis naïveté, all around her. Wait till you hear Deanna’s story of cannabis courage and apologies in advance for our crazy WiFi, it’s not too bad but you’ll hear a couple of glitches just ignore them. And don’t forget that you can find out all about the links that Deanna will be talking about in the show notes, just go to the show notes, anytime, and you’ll see all of those. Thank you so much for joining us and now, come on in meet Deanna.
There you are. I bet I’ve got you now. Hi there. Hi, How are you, Deanna?
Deanna Bigham 2:24
I’m good, Honey. How are you?
Honey Smith Walls 2:27
I’m just great. It’s so great to have a chat with you. I’m just tickled that we so serendipitously got to meet that. And that you are who you are and you came here to tell us all about you and what’s going on. So, welcome.
Nurse Deanna 2:48
Well this is really exciting. I appreciate the opportunity to to be here and do this, like, Oh, I’m really honored and humbled, that’s for sure.
Honey Smith Walls 2:59
Oh honey, thank you because I feel the same way, anytime we can show our audience, you know, a peek behind the curtain of, you know, a war-zone, no matter what that looks like, and you’re, you’re in that right now, because you’re a nurse in Texas, in the middle of the pandemic, but you’re also something else that the doctors are calling you, which I just find amusing and wonderful. They’re calling you the CBD nurse aren’t they?
Nurse Deanna 3:38
Yes, yes. Yep. Look out, that nurse knows about CBD.
Honey Smith Walls 3:46
Yeah, and they don’t know anything, do they?
Nurse Deanna 3:49
Not much. No, yeah. Not that they’re not learning a lot from me.
Honey Smith Walls 3:53
How did all this come about?
Nurse Deanna 3:59
I sometimes say by accident, but I realized that nothing is really by accident. It’s, you know, on purpose, and so, you know, kind of lean into it. Like well, that, that was my time to, to learn about this.
So I was at work I was in the nurse’s station, and you know there it’s always real busy and this was already a couple of years ago, so it was pre- COVID stuff. And so, you know, Just a lot of busy work and charting and chatting and stuff. And so I overheard a dietitian friend talking to one of the nurses, and she was, you know, talking about this oil that was helping her with some issues that she was experiencing and yeah this oil it really helps relieve my ABC issues. And one of those really kind of resonated with me because I was experiencing what she was mentioning, and I said, So, what kind of oil are you talking about? I just thought essential oil. Oh yeah, looking into that one. Okay. And she says no no it’s, it’s CBD. CBD …what that is. And she’s you know, Cannabidiol.
Oh, Like, yeah, that still didn’t help me. I don’t know what that is. She said, You know what helps to balance your endocannabinoid system. I’m like, okay girl I am so lost, I don’t know what it is that you’re talking about.
Honey Smith Walls 5:35
Isn’t that amazing? She was another nurse though, right?
Nurse Deanna 5:52
She was our dietician at the hospital. Yeah. I said, you’re gonna have to write down those words because I’ve never heard those words before. She said oh, okay, you know, from the hemp plant. Like, oh, no, it still wasn’t quite connecting but I was getting closer to me… And she said in hushed tones, you know… from cannabis! I’m like, Oh my god. You can’t be saying that! We’re in a hospital! Oh my god! They’ll come arrest us!
Sayin that in the hospital, you know, where I was coming from.
Honey Smith Walls 6:29
Oh my goodness.
Nurse Deanna 6:30
Oh, on that respect, you know, growing up, you know, quite, you know, conservative, Southern Baptists, you know, in the Bible Belt, and then being a nurse on top of that, that’s not something you played around with. No, yeah. So I had no personal experience with cannabis. My mindset has definitely crossed lanes.
Honey Smith Walls 7:01
Yeah. Did that happen overnight like a dunkin in the water or…
Nurse Deanna 7:10
It was gradual, The more I will get those words like the endocannabinoid system. And she said I know you’d like to research, go look it up. Okay. In assignment. And it was like, very eye opening. Like why did I not learn this in nursing school. And then, you know started reading, you know, the more you find, then the more you find and you know you clicking on these links and then you know you just couldn’t. I’m just consuming this new information, it was just, wow, yeah and then the history of it. Yep, you know, kind of makes me mad.
Honey Smith Walls 7:53
And that’s what I was, that’s where I was going with it. Didn’t it just infuriate you when you, when you found out the real history. Yes.
Nurse Deanna 8:01
Yeah, I didn’t learn this in high school history. I don’t think I skipped that class, and I don’t recall that in college history classes and why don’t we know this, you know. Right, yeah. Yeah, jumping in there and just learning all that I can, you know. And coming from a medical backgrounds like, okay, you know, we know our cardiac system and our respiratory system all these body systems, but I had no clue we had an endocannabinoid system.
Honey Smith Walls 8:39
Now they call it the Endocannabinoid OME, because it’s a whole, right, because it’s a whole OME.
Nurse Deanna 8:50
Honey Smith Walls 8:54
Yeah well it’s, you know, it’s, it’s new science and yeah so everything coming out is brand new and so wonderful to be here, learning at the beginning of it because you know there’s only going to be a bazillion studies coming out.
Nurse Deanna 9:13
Yes. Gotta study everything even though this plant, you know, has been around since the beginning of time. That’s right, you know, our ancestors used it in the ships they used it and yes, it goes very very very far back.
Honey Smith Walls 9:30
I say that, that America that, especially the United States was built on the back of cannabis. Because, you know, they never would have made it, the Europeans, or none of them, ever would have made it over here to this continent without sales, and what do you make sales from hemp from cannabis.
Nurse Deanna 9:54
The word Canvas I have learned exactly comes from cannabis.
Honey Smith Walls 10:04
They couldn’t have made it here without that, and then the farmers were, you know, The first farmers were told to to plant their first crops of hemp, and then they could pay their taxes with it, Henry Ford made his first car with hemp, and he intended to run his entire fleet off of hemp biofuel. So, you know, Chernobyl cleaned itself up by planting hemp, after the explosion. You know that?
Nurse Deanna 10:37
Honey Smith Walls 10:38
I love those little hempy factoids. They’re so much fun.
Nurse Deanna 10:43
Yes, the Declaration of Independence was drafted, on hemp paper,
Honey Smith Walls 10:48
Nurse Deanna 10:51
About a flag. One of the original flags, I believe.
Honey Smith Walls 10:56
Yes, and well everybody was living with hemp, there wasn’t that much cotton around then. So hemp came before before cotton. I think I’m right in saying that but gosh somebody look it up and prove me wrong. But I do know that the hemp clothing now have material softer and finer than silk. Yeah, yes. Now, why aren’t we all wearing hemp again?
Nurse Deanna 11:32
It’s coming. It’s coming out,
Honey Smith Walls 11:35
Well if I hadn’t met you and you hadn’t told me about Hemp Mama, I’ve just been whining about it for years. You know, wanting a company like Hemp Mama, and everybody go to…What’s their website?
Nurse Deanna 11:55
You can actually access it at hempmama.com/DBigham.
There you go, want to go to mine.
Honey Smith Walls 12:05
Nurse Deanna 12:11
Because I am a registered nurse, I’m a CBD, educational consultant with the company of My Daily Choice. We have CBD products, as well as hemp based products, including clothing. We have a new clothing line that was just released this summer, so you can access that at hempmama.com/DBigham.
Honey Smith Walls 12:51
And I’m here to tell you, I’m looking at Hemp Mama clothing line right now. And it is utterly adorable. Really great look and style. Really our kind of clothes, extremely comfortable, very. It’s loungewear and workout wear and bras and leggings and stuff like that. But, the style of the of the workout wear is so cute and I love the colors. Just great classic look at clothes that you want to throw on and live in, you know, is what it looks like. It really does yeah.
Nurse Deanna 13:39
Just very comfy you can dress it up. You can dress it down, you know, just run to the grocery store, lounge around, you know, Put some jewelry on with it or a belt.
Honey Smith Walls 13:50
Yeah I’d feel completely comfortable going in those green jeans. Those darling green jeans that she’s got on right now, and it’s a bib overall, I’d like to do the, the runway in that with some bling and jewels.
Nurse Deanna 14:07
Looking forward to that! Yeah, we had, when we started, you know, to get back together. There was a, I’m at a loss for words, big meeting, convention. There we go.
Honey Smith Walls 14:22
Oh yeah, yeah, I forgotten what they are too Wi Fi Right, yeah.
Nurse Deanna 14:29
This summer when the clothing line launched, and yes some of the leaders did you know,a runway Style Show with the new clothing, it was, awesome.
Honey Smith Walls 14:38
I bet it was,
Honey Smith Walls 14:42
Hemp Mama is under the umbrella of My Daily Choice, is that correct? That is correct. And MyDailyChoice.com for our listeners, also has Hempworks CBD products, is that correct? That is correct. Okay, you go ahead and tell us about the rest of that story because I just I just want to tell our audience before you knew how I felt, Hempworks is one of the very few hemp products that I have that I advocate, because I have vetted it, because I, I, I wanted to be able to advise patients when they would come to me and ask, and there were so many other companies out on the market that were just horrible offals and hemp works passes all the muster. It really is a company that cares about its patients… keyword patients. And so, I’m real proud, that, that you, you know that you advocate this too, because it’s important to find good companies that our society can trust, you know, trust is a huge issue right now.
Nurse Deanna 16:11
Yeah. And during my self educational process… Yes, and learning about, you know, the third party testing and the lab testing and the soil testing and all of that, yes, it is very, very important for my place, that all of their products are third party tested. I learned that hemp is a bio accumulator, which means that it absorbs everything good as well as bad. That’s right, that’s what you had shared with me the other day, Honey. So, the third party testing is adamant about testing for the toxins in the soil.
Honey Smith Walls 17:07
We’re also glad to hear you say that,
Nurse Deanna 17:10
Toxins, metal, molds, mildew, any of those toxins that the hemp just naturally absorbs and if it absorbs then it will be passed on into the byproduct that the hemp is made into. That’s right. Cannabis does the same thing, and cannabis absorbs that also. So whether you are, you know, recreational or medical cannabis user or CBD, check out your sources.
Honey Smith Walls 17:43
Where it comes from. That’s right. You just must. This is a different world in helping patients than what we have been accustomed to in western medicine. In western medicine, the doctor prescribes a medication and we go to the drugstore. He gives us a bottle of that prescription of pills, we take it home and use it up a couple of times a day. This is totally different. We don’t have the same oversight, yet in the cannabis industry, that the medicinal pharmacological companies have. And so we’re just stuck here between a rock and a hard place, and that rock is not knowing what to do and the hard place is needing the medication.
So, the answer is just exactly what Deanna said we’ve got to check the source of our medicine, until the FDA comes swooping in with its big red cape. Right. And we give our imprimatur for this. Yeah, right. Yeah. So, but you, You’ve hit one of the best CBD products on the market, in my humble opinion. There’s a couple of others but you know, and they’re right up there with those others like Charlotte’s Web and and hemp. Oh healer.com You know Dr. Dustin Sulak okay yeah okay he came out with his own CBD product too that will go across the state but HenpWorx has been in business for a long time now
Nurse Deanna 19:43
for several years, And I believe 2017 2018
Honey Smith Walls 19:49
Yes. Can you believe I’m saying that’s a long time?
Nurse Deanna 19:54
Just before the, the farm bill passed. And one, as a nurse, and two in our area in Texas that I’m in, initially, yes I did get a lot of backlash, a lot of pushback, a lot of criticism. I suppose like you’re a nurse and you’re doing what? CBD? My kids even gave me such a hard time such a hard time it was funny. It was kind of funny. Yeah, because that was the, the mom that flipped out. When I found out when they were teenagers…. Yeah, kids will be kids. Like, yeah, onwards, you know.
Honey Smith Walls 20:45
Yeah, that’s a little tough to do, but it’s worth it. Isn’t it especially for this product, and so have you found, now it’s been. You’ve been hemp savvy, and we’re talking hemp right now because you’re in Texas and Texas is not real friendly to cannabis. Yet
Nurse Deanna 21:07
You have what’s called the Compassionate Care Act for the medical marijuana.
Honey Smith Walls 21:14
Nurse Deanna 21:16
You know a lot of activists, I think is the right word, pushing for recreational marijuana. I kind of sort of keep up with that I’m not, you know, am involved in that I’ve got other things that, of course, right. So it may be getting close. Yeah, I can’t give any details because I don’t know enough.
Honey Smith Walls 21:44
Well, have you have you found any cannabis doctors near you that you’re interested in, You know that you chat with?
Nurse Deanna 21:57
Not to chat with. Well I’ve looked them up online a few times just to kind of, you know see where they all are, if they’re around. I’m close to Waco, and that’s you know, Baylor capital so yep, I don’t know that there would I haven’t found any close here. I’m sure there’s some or there are some I’ve seen in the Austin area and the Dallas, Fort Worth area. As far as you know, connecting with them I haven’t done that. I personally haven’t had a need to do that.
Honey Smith Walls 22:29
So, right, right, right.
Nurse Deanna 22:36
They are, you know, definitely reachable and there’s plenty of them. I think plenty of them. That can be found online. I haven’t looked.
Honey Smith Walls 22:45
That’s good. Uh, who was your favorite educator about hemp or did you, you know, is it all just been reading other people’s stuff? Was there somebody in particular that really really touched base with you? Who would you advise somebody who came to you and said well what should I read, who should I follow about this… I’m brand new to it. Who would be your choice to send that person to?
Nurse Deanna 23:17
The website I found myself on quite a lot because I had no clue as to, you know what book, so to Google I go right because Google Yeah,
Honey Smith Walls 23:28
That’s right, we love, we love Saint Google.
Nurse Deanna 23:32
Exactly, so you know I’m typing in the Cannabidiol system and CBD for anxiety CBD for sleep. That’s, I didn’t know where else to go. So the website that I found myself on a lot, initially, is projectcbd.org
Honey Smith Walls 23:52
Oh yeah, oh project CBD…that well, you hit the jackpot girl. You hit the jackpot. Yeah,
Nurse Deanna 24:00
So a lot of information, you know, that’s where I found myself starting, and so the different articles and forces you know you click on that link takes you back. So way back to the studies, right, right, but the nerdy side in that kind of research, I don’t like, but I like reading about the research.
Honey Smith Walls 24:23
I didn’t know I was a nerd until I fell in love with cannabis science, for crying out loud, I just thought I was a little creative but now I find out I’m a real goofy nerd about all this. I know,
Nurse Deanna 24:42
but I do now.
Honey Smith Walls 24:44
So, do you think CBD has been helpful through the pandemic?
Nurse Deanna 24:57
Oh, my goodness, yes. Oh, the stress, the anxiety, the, you know, just the constant, you know 12 hours shift of… Oh, poor thing.
Honey Smith Walls 25:17
And you’re a happy woman, I can, I mean I can hear it that you’re a happy woman ordinarily So, yeah, the stress has to be unimaginable.
Nurse Deanna 25:29
First, wearing the mask. Okay. That’s kind of why initially, I didn’t really like it, I work in surgery now, but one of the reasons I wasn’t crazy about working in surgery is because of wearing the mask, you know, and this was way, pre pandemic stuff.
Nurse Deanna 25:53
It was just you know, kind of claustrophobic, anxiety, with that, and like, you know we had to deal with the mask. Well then comes COVID And now, everybody’s got to wear masks, all the time, like, oh wow. And so I found that I’m not the only one that dislikes the mask you know, it’s a little claustrophobic.
Honey Smith Walls 26:18
Yeah, little anxiety going on there about that. Yeah, poor thing. And so, and then you just had to you had to wear it.
Nurse Deanna 26:31
Yes, and not just your work then everywhere. That’s it, but we did wear it at work.
Honey Smith Walls 26:35
And so CBD helps you get past that anxiety,
Nurse Deanna 26:41
Oh my goodness yes. And I was already you know had already been, you know, using it and learning about it and stuff. And so yes, instead of just taking it at night to help me sleep which was a wonderful discovery like, wow, that is the best sleep, like yeah, I have had in a long time.
Honey Smith Walls 27:02
Nurse Deanna 27:03
I take it to work with me and I would take some drops in the morning, you know, put my mouth. Take the drops put my mask on and, and then during, you know, mid day like, okay I think I need some more drops and then the end of the day, so yes I was definitely in CBD usage, that’s for sure.
Honey Smith Walls 27:24
I texted you earlier today and reminded you that we were going to do this and I sort of had one eye on the news when all of the Olympians came on… the four female Olympians and they were talking about, you know, being raped and molested by Larry Nasser their doctor on the Olympic team, and it triggered me. It triggered me so badly.
And then I had a conference, and the conference was about saving the world through hemp, but it was showing all the disasters first, you know and how how horrible we’ve been to our planet. And again, I’m starting to get real real emotional. I’m triggered. I’m triggered because they’re showing all these poor dying animals you know from too much water, fire, everything going on and then, I have to go into the third conference after that and I thought, Oh no, not doing this again, and I had just texted you and ended, and somehow it reminded me to get it out and take my CBD.
Oh my Lord, I’m so glad I did. I was so anxious. I was so anxious before that third meeting, and, and I’m glad I did because, again, with the emotional triggers. But it didn’t trigger me that time. So, and by the time I had to call you. I was like, oh I’m calm and happy again. And that’s what CBD just that one compound can do for you.
If you get it in a full spectrum product. It will even help you more, it can help you more, there’s just all kinds, you know, There’s over 500 compounds in cannabis and so the hemp products don’t have hardly any THC in them as a full spectrum product. It will have a tiny bit of THC in it, but that’s what you know our government decided was the difference between hemp cannabis and marijuana cannabis… was how much THC was in it. So, so, you know, it’s all the same plant, it just has different ratios of cannabinoids, and that includes terpenes, you know, some, some varieties have a lot of linalool in it. And that’s a wonderful terpene that’ll help you slow down and and help your anxiety and help your sleep and all that.
But, oh I forgot what I was gonna say next, doesn’t matter, you know, there’s so much to say about the goodness of hemp. How can we buy? Tell us again. Oh no wait before I before I asked you that question. Tell us, how do you see the hospitals, serving cannabis patients when it finally happens? Because you know it’s coming, you know they’re going to have to get their patients all the paperwork together and the processing of their patients and you know all their systems in place for being able to allow a cannabis patient to come in and use their cannabis while they’re there in the hospital. Because you know if I were in a car wreck tonight and had to go to the hospital, I can’t take my cannabis with me. Although I have been legal in Florida as a cannabis medical marijuana patient for years, I still would not be able to take it into a hospital with me. Now, If I were on tremendous, you know, cannabis therapy for cancer, for instance, why would I want to stop my cannabis treatment?
Nurse Deanna 31:40
Honey Smith Walls 31:43
So you know the hospitals are going to have to get their standard operating procedures in order and their patient entry papers and all of that and where they’re going to put the cannabis and how they’re going to treat it, who’s going to administer. If the patient is unconscious and blah blah blah.
Nurse Deanna 32:09
That is like, whoa, way above what wow…
Honey Smith Walls 32:15
But guess what’s coming next, if it hasn’t already happened. In fact, I think it has already happened, the nursing homes, the elder cares places and the therapy places where you go after surgery and hang out for a few weeks.
Nurse Deanna 32:30
Yeah, you know, back in, what year was it? It was before I was introduced to CBD so it was probably, it was in 2017. My mom was diagnosed with cancer. And so she went through that ovarian cancer so she went through a hysterectomy and the chemo, and it was 2013 that she was diagnosed. I lost her in 2017. But going through several rounds of chemo, you know, the first round and, You know the several rounds of chemo, I did not know anything about CBD, at that time. And now, as I’m learning this, or have learned this, and then look back at those several years that she was undergoing chemo and the nausea, and lost appetite and all those chemo effects of that. Oh my gosh, how much would that have helped her
Honey Smith Walls 33:49
Nurse Deanna 33:52
Or even the medical marijuana. I didn’t know then.
Honey Smith Walls 33:55
Of course not, none of us knew. None of us knew. I mean, you and I are talking about it. Yeah, I’ve got an audience and they’re hearing it. I’m probably singing to the choir by this point, but, you know, that’s why we’re doing this really Deanna, that’s why we must talk about it out loud and as often as possible, and find as many forums, as we possibly can, and continue on with our charge because the memories of our mothers dying of cancer are with us still. And that pain lives on in us. We must do something to help the other mothers.
Nurse Deanna 34:38
Yes, could that have relieved her nausea? And her pain without knocking her out, like, you know the morphine or the Dilaudid or Fennergin for nausea and that just, you know ruin the quality of life. You could relieve some of those symptoms. Totally knock them out so that, that you can have some of those, you know, memorable last days… last few weeks. They’re not in excruciating pain, and they are still coherent, you know, for you to talk to, you know, one last little tidbit that they haven’t shared with you yet.
Honey Smith Walls 35:30
Right, yes. And they won’t be so hideously sick in the evening of their life and they can appreciate the time that they have together, you know, with their loved ones. Yeah, it’s, it’s important that we begin to recognize the needs of humanity, their needs, the emotional needs of the human, and stop this apathy of, you know this lack of emotion for our spiritual needs. And cannabis will absolutely help us do all of that too. Tell me now. Tell tell us all how can we buy our CBD from you and get in touch with you to talk about it a little bit more,
Nurse Deanna 36:27
I would love that, I would love that. My name is Deanna Begum. And that is my email. So, email is, DEANNA BIGHAM @ gmail.com
Honey Smith Walls 36:49
I just want to make a song out of that. The way you said it is so cute.
Nurse Deanna 37:03
I’ve had to spell it for a number of years. My website, we’ll just make it easy at MyDailyChoice, all one word, no spaces .com forward slash, DBigham. The corporate name, and under that parent company, we have six different product lines. One of those product lines is Hempworx CBD and the CBD tincture. We have soft gels, we have gummies here too. MyDailyChoice.com/dbigham
Honey Smith Walls 37:52
And the most important thing let me interrupt here, the most important thing about hemp works that both Deanna and I want to impress upon our audience is that it has been vetted because it has third party lab work attached to all of their products, so you can be sure that they are pure and without contamination. So, in this wild wild world of cannabis we have to remind you that you must be your own sheriff in town.
Nurse Deanna 38:32
Right. And when you’re looking at CBD, look at the ingredients, be mindful of those ingredients, If it has a list of ingredients for five or more, and words that you can’t pronounce, run. Yeah, don’t. Yeah, quality, CBD should only have three or less. Okay. It will have the hemp seed oil, the CBD hang on I lost my place. If it has a flavor that would be about the last thing, so it will have the hemp. The Pressed seed oil the hemp derived, either the full or the broad spectrum.
Honey Smith Walls 39:28
Oh broad spectrum. Okay,
Nurse Deanna 39:32
We have the full spectrum, and the broad spectrum. When you get them the full spectrum, it has the minute amount of THC. That’s right broad spectrum does not have THC. There you go, not all people, such as in my line of work in the medical field, law enforcement, some air traffic controllers need thc. So there are some of those professions that don’t want to take the chance of testing positive on a urine drug screen.
Honey Smith Walls 0:24
Well it’s not just that they don’t need the THC psycho effect, you know, during microsurgery, or trying to land airplanes or, you know, giving the codes to the football box, or whatever, right? So if people just don’t need THC in their medication, they can, they can get comfort and relief without it.
Nurse Deanna 1:03
Yes, right. Yes you can. Yes, so be sure that when you’re looking at that, it has a very small list of ingredients. Yeah. You’ll also want to look for the stamp of approval, we call it from the US hemp authority. I love that certified Third party testing. That’s great. and ours also has a QR code on it that you can scan that QR code and it will take you directly to the certificate of analysis of the third party testing results.
Honey Smith Walls 1:47
I love that word. Now you’re talking my kind of language. The COA. Certificate of Analysis, yeah. Okay, great. Well, I want to put all of these links in our show notes as well for our audience so they don’t have to write all this down while they’re listening, and they’re used to finding all this information in our show notes. So, we’ll have those links available for you. Audience dear. And, be sure and check out the hemp Works products at Diana’s website and just click the link in the show notes, it’ll take you right there. Oh, check out their other products to their clothes and all that stuff, MyDailyChoice.com/dbigham
Nurse Deanna 2:44
Reach out to me on Facebook. My name, Deanna Bigham. Yes, definitely, on Facebook, or Instagram too. Mostly on Facebook. I still am working on the Instagram thing.
Honey Smith Walls 3:04
Oh, I am too and and every day. I struggle whether or not to even hang on to Facebook I’m so upset with them, but that’s another podcast, that’s the whole other issue. Yes it is, it is but listen, Deanna… will you get in touch with me when anything big happens in your neck of the woods and let us know so that we stay in touch with you? And tell us about different products or whatever in your line or if you just want to chat again I’d love to have a visit with you.
Nurse Deanna 3:38
We have our conference coming up, and toward the end of October, we’re going to Las Vegas for our clients. Come with me, girl.
Honey Smith Walls 3:51
I’ll think about it. I will. I’m kind of a chicken about getting on an airplane, you know. But we’ll remind everybody to pack up and go to the convention and be sure and get their goodies and lalala. Well, yeah.
Nurse Deanna 4:15
Yes, follow me on Facebook, I will definitely be posting. They’re probably on Instagram and by that time, we’ll also have new products coming out.
Honey Smith Walls 4:25

Nurse Deanna 4:31
Thank you I appreciate your time.

Take care, bye bye.
Hey, my friends, I wanted to tell you a little something personal. It’s a little painful, a little embarrassing and a little nothing I can do about it except be patient story. I’ve been telling y’all to go to my website at CannabaVerum.com for at least six or eight months now, and the big elephant in the room, is that there’s been some crazy issues trying to publish my site. It was up for a long time then it was down then I got it back up again and now. Well, now I’m just working as fast as I can behind the scenes, and it’ll be, it’ll be up again soon. It’s in remake, so I’ll let you know ASAP.
But in the meantime, I still want to be helpful, and if you’re trying to find cannabis therapy, and you need a little help, here’s where to start.
Go see your family doctor for a copy of your current diagnosis. You want to involve your primary care physician in your lab work, to watch your progress with cannabinoid treatment, then you’ll find a cannabis doctor who can teach you what you need to know about that.
And finally, you’ll visit a dispensary for medical grade cannabis products.
Those are three easy steps to remember 123 Bada Bada bing, but that’s the short version. And with so much to consider in this new cannabinoid therapy, it’s best to inspire your regular doctor to keep an eye on you during the whole process through your lab work.
See your doctor is going to have to order that lab work for you, and that’s where you’re going to convert him.
So please visit my other website at HoneySmithWalls.com That’s right, it’s just my name. HoneySmithWalls.com. There you’ll see a Dear Doctor letter that will help start that conversation between you and your family doctor to get them on the same page with you about trying a new cannabis therapy. And the letter refers your doctor back to trusted sources for scientific research on the matter. Visit HoneySmithWalls.com today.
And thanks again for joining us for the Cannaba Verum podcast, wherever you listen. Pax Vobiscum my friends.
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. The process of taking your records with your symptoms and diagnosis to a cannabis specialist can lead you to the correct cannabinoid therapy for your best results. Otherwise, it just your own guinea pig looking for answers without any foundational knowledge or ability to determine the best choices, 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. The Cannaba verum.com website.
That’s C A N N A B A V E R U M.com
Cannaba Verum is Latin for Cannabis Truth. Sourcing factual information about cannabis hasn’t always been easy for a variety of reasons. However now because of modern innovations, it is. My sources are from leaders in cannabis science like:
Roger Adams, U.S. Organic Chemist who isolated the structure of CBD,
Raphael Mechoulam, Israeli Organic Chemist who isolated the structure of THC,
Ethan Russo, Dir R&D International Cannabis and Cannabinoids Institute
Dustin Sulak, DO – my favorite doctor at healer.com, teaching the art of Cannabis Healing to the world, and other industry greats like:
Rev. Dr. Kymron DeCesare, Ed Rosenthal, Jack Herer, Michael Backes, and Michael Pollen and so many more… plus I use classical sites like: PubMed.com, JAMA.com, ResearchGate.com. I listen to several daily podcasts to keep up with the latest cannabis news across the nation and throughout the world like: The Great Shea Gunther at MJTodayDaily.com and MarijuanaMoment.net. I trust the CBDProject.org and CannabisScienceTech.com. I watch the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) at: thecannabisindustry.org and many more.
You’ll find Citations available on my podcast blog at cannabaverum.com
PS: Helping society get past the fear of using cannabis will be a lifelong journey for me. This industry is just opening up and both patients and doctors are completely cannabis naive and need help understanding where to turn for trustworthy information. If you need help opening that cannabis discussion with your family doctor, please reach out and grab the Dear Doctor Letter I wrote for this exact purpose. It will explain your decision to try cannabis and ask for their help in monitoring your labs and progress. It will also show them where they can find medical research on the subject of your diagnosis and the effects of cannabis. You’ll find that letter here: HoneySmithWalls.com
