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.

Hello my friends,

The language of cannabis is so interesting. So alive. And so hacked by a multitude and millennium of cultures and jargon.

We say things like Pot card. Weed. CBD. Durban Poison. Hemp or Hash. Granddaddy Kush. Smokin joints. Dabbing Concentrates. Bongs for Jesus… Does that slang offend you? Would you rather I use more clinical terminology such as medical marijuana and cannabis dispensaries? You’re probably not a young whippersnapper then. Language changes with the young and the migration of people. It is alive… like ideas.

I try to keep up with as much world and national news as the hours in my day allows. Most of my study is in cannabis research and how the science is changing everything.

Legislation seems to be moving faster than the speed of light on things like blocking voting rights for people of color. And now we have a brand new national holiday commemorating another Great Lie… to a whole state of slaves… Juneteenth.

THAT Great Lie was making a whole state of slaves believe the war was still going on when it had ended two years earlier.

But that wasn’t the first Great Lie of the white men of this country… talk to the indigenous of this land. And as I have a bit of a trust issue with old white men, I’ll bet it’s not the last Big Lie. And I’m saying the quiet part out loud again. It’s not women starting these fights and killing others and making war with every other person on the planet who doesn’t look like them.

I’ve been reading some books about current political shenanigans and trying to understand why some people believe more in deceit and control and fortune for a few rather than the effort it takes to care for one another equally.

The question begs an answer… where is their empathy? Is this strain of contempt for women and people of color so deeply ingrained that they cannot remember the pains in their hearts the first time they saw something that made them cry?

The women of Texas are denigrated to begging old white men in power for the right to decide what happens in their own body.  They won’t let women in Texas have their own bodily governance but guess what’s coming that happened in Virginia and several other states in the early part of the 20th century… state sanctioned sterilization of the Deplorables. You know… People of Color, sluts, and gypsies.  It was called Eugenics and it intended on cleaning up the gene pool according to the ideas of certain old white guys including those who heavily funded the project like Rockefeller (oil), Carnegie (manufacturing), and Harriman (railroad).

This whole idea of science for some in Eugenics is bigoted, ludicrous, and wide spread throughout the US. I can only imagine the deep seated fear of half our population or more as these ideas gained favor. The white man brought people of color to this country as slaves and now want to genetically carve them out of our existence. I didn’t make this up.  Google it. It’s called Eugenics. “Beginning in 1896 with Connecticut, many states enacted marriage laws with eugenic criteria, prohibiting anyone who was “epileptic, imbecile or feeble-minded from marrying.’  The first state to introduce a compulsory sterilization bill was Michigan, then PA, IN, WA, CA and CT. Friends, this wasn’t that long ago and god knows how many of those laws were just left on the books and ignored as time passed.

And then the Immigration Restriction League was created by 3 Harvard graduates, not female or people of color, to monitor and slow down the  influx of the wrong color coming through our borders. Inferior races coming in to mix with the “superior American racial stock”.

The reason I’m bringing this up is to demonstrate that it only takes a handful of smart white guys to fuck up the world for everybody.

But I don’t like the world those old white fuckers try to control. It’s hateful, harmful, unfair and unjust to most.

So I decided to call it all out when I see it.  All the bullshit. Yep. You’ll hear it here.

Admittedly, I don’t like watching the sausage being made… so I keep an eye out on this industry from a distance.  Like when I ditched Democrats’ politics a few years ago for LGBTQ politics instead. It felt more personal and local and less Mitch McConnellish.

Just watching the border patrol herd Haitian migrants with whips from atop their horses set a whole new pang of terror through the hearts of everyone… WITH a heart.

We cannot continue to hate and expect to make this world a better place. Hate and better don’t play nicely. We neeeeeeed immigrants for our country.

YOU won’t go harvest our food.  YOU won’t go into factories and process everything we eat. YOU won’t drive those semi’s all over the nation delivering all the STUFF that Americans buy. But you’ll demand it. And blame government when our delicate infrastructure of processes fall apart.  Would you like to see all the haters on one side of the US and the others left over to form the loving system of inclusion we want?

What would that look like?

The more old white man influence of hate that is amplified and allowed to continue the harder it will be to correct it.  But what if we turned their hateful Eugenics back on them?  What if we decided that anybody who spews lies and descent will be systematically relieved of their ideas with mind-altering chemicals until proven disavowed and had a complete rebirth of mind and attitude.

Or does that sound too much like MIND control? Well what do you think those old white guys have been doing? Influencing the non-thinkers to adopt their ideas. How do so many people get to adulthood without the ability to reason?   Ohhhhhh I dunno… maybe we’re taught from birth to believe only certain things. To believe in stuff that doesn’t exist but we’re told over and over to believe and just have faith that it does?

You tell me.


So at this ripe older age I’m putting my money on science. But not the science of Eugenics. That was purely corrupt in the hearts of those people who used higher education as a weapon to small poor people of OTHER. So we see that even science has it’s terrible constituents. If you’d like to read more about that era of absurdity, check out the audio version of “The Genetic Lottery – Why DNA Matters for Social Equality” by Kathryn Paige Harden.  I suggest the audio versions all the time because it allows us to multitask and listen to a speeded up version in order to glean the information a little quicker. I’ve got a lot of catching up to do because my childhood education was so empty. And I love being able to learn about the things that interest me at my own pace in my own way doing something else while I’m info mining. This makes me feel like a sponge for knowledge now when before I just felt detached from the historical dates and bland outlines.

Where does that leave us in trusting the source? Well over the years, I’ve gotten to know the premier cannabis scientists and looked at their backgrounds, their cannabis philosophy, their human philosophy, and their planetary philosophies.

I’m choosing my sources, checking their history and bias, and trying to learn the new moot information.

One thing these scientists agree with me… we’re trying to help relieve the suffering of allllll people on this planet and protect them from the pain of living under unjust and unholy rule.

I’m saying we have to pick and choose our philosophy by comparison of others. And if you’re afraid of OTHERS, then your philosophy can’t be inclusive. We have to listen to reason. We can’t drive our planet on faith in the Devine. We must employ useful creative techniques in problem solving and stop telling people to be afraid of the unknown outside their own bubble.

I’m afraid of the power that old white men still have over the world. Especially after the previous administrative pussy grabber in chief. And I’m sure you’re thinking I’m crazy for saying all this out loud and probably consider me a man-hater as I sit here watching a picture of the former president splashed against my tv with a new scheme of deceit he’s up to. He’s a disgusting human being by allll accounts but the unlove of his parents started all that mess. You callin me a man hater yet?

My friends know that I don’t hate men. I hate what a handful of old white men have historically done to harm certain groups of people since forever… and the damage done to the planet for their own greed and gain.

All the other guys on earth, no matter what color, don’t act like them. So call me what you will but a man hater, I’m not. Some of my best friends are men. Right Jay? Right Jonathan? Right Max? My husband of 30 years knows I love all three of those guys and have been close friends with them for years and years. No shame in love. They balance my world with poetry, science, and music… respectively. I like men very much, for their strengths and courage and vitality.

But the actions of those few, over the millennium, have been devastating for most people around the world. We have to flip that scenario. And I think we can by highlighting the corruption and creating the good storyline for the public to follow.

We still need to teach people how to treat each other… especially after all the religions have taught them that OTHER religions are bad. Only THAT religion is the one true way.  Otherism is insidiously woven into our every day life.  We must change our language and give OTHERS a new way to be included with us.

Know what helps expand your thoughts? Yep. Cannabis. That psychoactive compound we call THC can fire new ideas that your previous state of mind could not. It can afford breakout thoughts that inspire a new attitude of patience and understanding. Of compassion and empathy. It can be a new faucet of ideas that you might never consider or allow yourself to think about in such ways.

We have the tools to make change without harm. But we’ve got to stop letting the wrong ideas prevail.  We’ve got to start amplifying the RIGHT ideas and make inclusiveness the new order of the day. Stop panicking society with “what if’s” and create the picture of “getting alongness” and cooperation we prefer to see. Everybody helping Everybody. Equal Opportunity FREE Education for everyone that creates the innovation we need to succeed. NEED is the Mother of Invention. Did you hear about those 6 Afghani teen girls who created breathing machines out of old car parts for their hospitals that are so desperate for equipment and supplies? The same Afghani girls who now fled in exile of their country so they could continue to study and learn. Because, you know… the Taliban has taken over now and there’s no room in their world for intelligence or modernity. I weep for humanity with ancient stupidity like that to combat.

But culling certain kinds of people out of the modern equation through the scientific ideas of Eugenics sterilization isn’t right either.  Those same kind of people won’t let women have abortions at will but when you see what they did to the undesirables in all 50 United States at the same Natzi Germany was murdering Jews and Gypsies for Hitler then it’s a pretty compelling reminder to straighten up before it happens again.

There is an asinine priority of locking out immigrants from our country that’s been ongoing for years! Our society has disavowed logic and reason to let men with criminal intent rule their corrupt governing political party.  That path is doomed to unhappiness and discontent. I’ll be calling it out wherever I see it. I’m not waiting for you to get your shit together. From now on… you catch up.

Ooh that sounded a little rank. Can you tell I’m tired of that mindless… literally mind-less ness of bigotry and misogyny?

Well soon, cannabis is going to begin making it’s sweet relief known again and the scientists, clinicians, pharmacists, and advocates like me will be here to help you wade through all the bullshit of the legislators in the pockets of Big Pharma, Tobacco, Alcohol, Cotton, and Oil.  Once cannabis can have proper banking, proper marketing abilities like Big Pharma and Alcohol, and can establish good standardized business practices throughout the country that protects the consumer from harm, then we’re gettin somewhere.

Because no matter what color you are, what gender you prefer to be called, who you love, or what you do…. Cannabis is more like the definition of Jesus than the actions of the people who call themselves Christians.

OhMyCOW!!! Did I say that out loud?

BREAK.  Insert Promo

Now that you’re armed with your own weapon of communication…

Let’s run through the basics of cannabis before we say goodbye.

If you’re new to this live plant therapy… first things first.

Go get a diagnosis from your family doctor and let her know you’ve decided to try cannabis therapy.  If you’re shy about starting that conversation, visit my site for the Dear Doctor Letter that opens that conversation for you.

Take your diagnosis and records to a cannabis specialist doctor… a pot doctor. There you’re going to learn the best therapy for you and what to look for when you go to a dispensary or even a CBD shop to buy your medicinal products.

At this point, you’re going to be very wary of contamination in your live plant therapy because it can make you sicker. So you’ll be asking for the proof that there’s no contamination by checking the third party lab test on that product. If it doesn’t have one, don’t buy it.

And finally at home, you’ll begin the discovery process to find your “sweet spot” which is the amount of product you need to feel relief and no more. It’s a process that takes a few days and for some, a few weeks. Everyone has a different dosage but every doctor I know says the same thing about that: dose makes the poison. A little bit may help but too much will cause adverse reactions.

So there ya havit.  The more people we inspire to use this live plant therapy for relief of everything under the sun, the less hatefulness we’ll have to endure.

That’s MY philosophy.


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 website. that’s    C A N N A B A V E R U


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, 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:,, 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 and  I trust the and I watch the National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) at: and many more. 

You’ll find Citations available on my podcast blog at


PS: Helping society and clinicians 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:  If you love your doctor as much as I do mine, consider buying the following medical reference for her… and for you.
