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,
I’m stepping outside my ordinary episode to talk about a new product on the market that I found out about through my LinkedIn Tribe of cannabis professionals in the medical arena.
So that’s a pretty small niche of people at the moment. And mostly scientists, M.D.s and Pharmacists are who I’m hangin out with there… and some fabulous Women in Weed whom I personally love to spotlight as the Great Balance of Spirit needed in the physical world.
So in that vein, Let me introduce a DARLING new friend who I’m pretty sure came from the same litter I did cause we have sooo much in common! But she’s got a sweeter southern accent and knows all the science behind the product we’re talkin about. You see, Miss Anne and her side-kick, the famous athletic coach, Sammy Nasrollahi, have a beautiful new cannabis product just getting started on the market and it’s so impressive, I asked them to come on the show and tell us why.
Yall know I’m extremely cautious about cannabis products. I vet dispensaries and over-the-counter CBD stores alike for that third party lab test which proves the product we’re going to ingest is safe and actually has the content listed inside and nothing else, like contamination.
Nano-Technology is advancing at lightening speed in the cannabis industry that allows the shelf-life of live plant products to stabilize making it easier to produce and count on the bioavailability of the compounds. You’ll hear Miss Ann and her partner Sammy talk about the absorption rate of the cannabinoids because of the new nano technology. It’s fascinating to understand and we really need to be responsible for understanding what is good for us and what is not.
So the thing is, I want you to be aware of what a GOOD cannabis product looks like and WHY it’s a good product. They didn’t ask me to come on my show… I invited them! I saw what they were doing, started a conversation on LinkedIn. They sent me information and product to try. I tested it, liked it, and want to help them promote a good product for our society. They can back up their claims and say all the right things to make me believe they’re real and honest. Like verifying the scientist’s credentials and motive for involvement in this product. How it came to be. How they did the science and the data to verify it. All that vetting matters and it’s really something we’ve left up to the FDA. But we must be more careful now until the FDA begins approving cannabis products.
I am really pleased to pull the curtain back and introduce you to the producers of a new cannabis drink alternative from the popular sugary junk choices given us. I tasted them. I LOVED THEM! But they affected me and you need to know HOW!
Please welcome my new friends in the cannabis industry… Miss Anne Smith and Sammy Nasrollahi of Hydro One Beverages.
Anne Smith 0:04
We just had a train go by behind. So it’s like we’re trying to have better, you know better volume and this huge train is passing by.
Honey Smith Walls 0:17
Girl? We live right by a train track! We do, there’s a pond between our house. And then there’s a berm that they dug the pond out of you know all the dirt from the pond, they dug out is the berm and right on the other side of that berm, is the railroad track well both Lewi and I grew up, right across the street from railroad tracks.
Anne Smith 0:38
I did too. Oh my god, I’m telling you. We’re from the same litter. Oh, listen, listen, I would be trying to sleep at night when I was little and I hear that the train whistle and it was the most mournful sound, I think I’ve ever heard in my life. And so, so when I was, was small, I would hear that, that whale of the train. And, and it was, it was the spookiest feeling, yeah. Yes, I just loved it.
Honey Smith Walls 1:12
It was wonderful to hear that whistle and wonder what was on that train and where it was going,
Anne Smith 1:19
Well yeah, here in Greenwood we supposedly have the widest Main Street because it used to have the railroad track running through the center of town. No kidding, it did and they took it out. Now they’re they’re talking about doing something different but we have four lanes of traffic driving through the middle of our town because we had, you know, the train station and the train track. But we have a train museum right down the street with the whole train sitting there so, wow, yeah, yeah,
Honey Smith Walls 1:57
We’ve got a big history with trains in this country.
Anne Smith 2:00
You know we do is,
Honey Smith Walls 2:03
I hope to see, you know,
Newer trains, speed rails and all that comin up I really think trains could serve us better than what’s happening now.
Anne Smith 2:13
Well, supposedly they have these superfast trains underground, that they use in these underground military bases that can go from one side of the US to the other in 24 minutes. Really. Yes, I mean, this information is not like, you know, they don’t talk about in mainstream very much but I can find an article and send you about it, but they say all of our tax dollars that they, that we are supposed to have in our infrastructure, a lot of it is going underground and we don’t even know it. Wow, that would explain a little bit I think…
Honey Smith Walls 2:54
That’s juicy information. Yeah it is. Welcome to my world. Honestly Sammy! So let’s, let’s talk about your company and the product that you’re putting out and why we got together to chat. What’s so important about letting our audience know about this product that you’ve got first of all, dear audience, Sammy and Anne sent me a box of their, their product called CANABIX drink. It’s a, it’s a, It’s an incredible, wonderful new drink product that has probiotics in it, and CBD, and it was made and created by a scientist, heavily into. I’m sorry I can’t say the word helped me out here Anne
Anne Smith 3:54
He has been working with medicinal marijuana and all the different cannabinoids. Over the past while since 2014 and has a wealth of information of how CBD can be helpful for so many different things. He’s has used it for brain trauma kidney trauma. He has used it to treat melanoma tumors, stop the cytokine storm that people are experiencing when they have an overabundance reaction by antibodies to something in the in the system, and also has found that it will attack the plaque that causes early stage Alzheimer’s. So, so, CBD and cannabis, just amazing, amazing things for the American people for everyone.
Honey Smith Walls 4:52
For everyone, it’s a global, it’s a global need really and because we’ve been restrained from it for the past 100 years now we’ve got even more issues that are weirder than ever. Hello, ADD and Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s and worse dementia, you know, billion different kinds of dementia, and all of that and so this scientist, Dr. Babak Babon.
Anne Smith 5:19
Honey Smith Walls 5:21
is I’m trying to say that he was an immunologist, is that correct?
Anne Smith 5:27
Right, he’s an internationally known immunologist in cancer research specialist. He has given his talks about his research in front of European Parliament, and his work has been cited in by the WHO on their website, last year, twice last year, the World Health Organization yes so so with so he is. He’s incredible.
Honey Smith Walls 5:56
He’s an amazing mind behind this drink.
Anne Smith 5:59
I wanted to say to that, that I joined later but, Sammy has been working with them since, since around 2006. And so this is not the first product that we’ve worked on with them. They have other products that were under a different company name: Hydro One Beverages. They’re all functional beverages, but Sammy helped develop some of those, Bode Sport, yes and REVd and True.
Honey Smith Walls 6:35
I had those two, I can’t wait to tell you what I wrote down about each one. Right, Sammy was a professional athlete and coach that’s what drew him into finding an alternative to all these sports drinks sugary sports drinks.
Anne Smith 6:50
That’s right. He coached, and worked with the kids so that they let him tell you what he saw,
Sammy Nasrollahi 6:57
You know, unfortunately, when we started our camp over 30 years ago, parents used to bring their kids with loads of, you know, products, including chips candies and drinks, and then we were doing our camps in the in the colleges that the kid’s going to go eat breakfast in the cafeteria or lunch and cafeteria dinner in the cafeteria, and I’m looking at the amount of sugar and sodium and carbs. These kids are taking every day. I don’t care if they’re five hours in the field. This thing is going to catch up with them, and I’m looking at everything they were eating, it was basically artificially made. It was very scary and I’m looking I said, these kids, I even said that over 30 some years ago, I said, our kids have a zero chance not to become obese or not to get some kind of a cancer, a drain on society, exactly not to becoming either diabetic or pre diabetic. And again, we mentioned that earlier I always ask people question, that’s the main reason we started with the Hydro One Beverages, and our flagship products was REVd, which stands for revolutionizing energizing vitalizing and a D was standing for diabetic. Wow yes ma’am and I was trying to, you know, educate people, especially when it comes to sugar. And for the last 14 years, I’ve been going around with NBC I’m on the NBC show ABC, you look. I’ve been there and I’ve been asking the audience if they can know for example, in one package of sugar, how many grams are in there. And as you mentioned yourself average american say between 10 to 50 grams. That will let them know that average drinks has 55 grams of sugar. That’s 18 packages! Because the sugar only weighs three grams in those packages that you put in your coffee. Honey if you look at it, you even though let’s say you like coffee, never in your life, would you ever put in a 16 ounce coffee 10 package of sugar. Never, but kids are now drinking the soda with 18 packets of sugar in them. That’s crazy. So if you multiple just that one soda times 18 for 30 days, and multiply that by, 12 months, that’s over 6,000 packets of sugar a year!
Honey Smith Walls 9:29
You know what causes inflammation of course, a lot of sugar.
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 9:36
Yes, it helps. I mean, unfortunately, if you look at diabetes in our country is a leading cause of amputation. Yes ma’am, almost a fifth or seventh leading cause of death, leading cause of the blindness. I mean there’s so many of our government spends on average $1 billion of our tax money for diabetic patients a day, a day, a billion a day.
Honey Smith Walls 10:04
That’s just astonishing news
Sammy Nasrollahi 10:12
You know it frustrates me because we could use that money to educate and put that money in middle school, elementary school, high school teachers and children. But unfortunately we’re culture of celebrities pushing garbage.
Anne Smith 10:30
The problem is that we’ve had this past two years with the virus. They know… they mentioned that the first people to get the virus there were really sick and having problems were those who were diabetic base. Yep. And, and, you know, they didn’t really tackle that issue they just went into the virus, but we all have a, we’re born with the immune system of if we’re, you know we have a real problem with premature birth or some congenital problem. We have strong immune systems, and you know we were we were made to heal. We weren’t made to need pharmaceutical drugs every day of our lives. Or sugar, right.
Honey Smith Walls 11:31
Humans didn’t have sugar for 1000s of years before the islands started distributing it from the great kingdoms who raped it.
Anne Smith 11:41
But you know what we did have. We were born with endocannabinoid receptors in our body. So, we’re supposed to use it, you know, we’re, we have the ability to use it so…
Honey Smith Walls 11:57
I’m thrilled to see a drink that’s come out that is so good for you. That’s an alternative to everything else that’s out there that isn’t good for you. And I gotta say, I didn’t expect the response that I got after I drank one. Let me tell you, let me tell you. The first thing I said the first one the first drink I had was a REVd pineapple, mango because I loved that, that flavor, and I had it over ice. And I had to say it tasted differently than it smells. There’s this tone this undertone of coconut, and it’s a truly delightful flavor and it completely quenched my thirst, on the first gulp. and it made me want more, and it didn’t feel gritty on my tongue or anything.
So, that particular day, beautiful but it was hectic and wild and chaotic and there was some real panic, going on all around me all day long. And I had that drink in the morning and wondered why I wasn’t feeling as distressed as everybody else around me I can’t even remember what the thing was, but I remember the feeling incredible, I kept saying, “Why am I so calm about this?” to myself. The only reason I could be this calm is because of that drink, and it only had 30 milligrams of CBD in it, but wow, I can sit here and tell you that it managed my emotions through an incredibly difficult emotional period. And I was gobsmacked by that, that a drink can do that, and taste good and be good for you? What I was floored.
Sammy Nasrollahi 14:04
We sent you so many products, I think the one that you’re talking is our CBD lemon cucumbers.
Honey Smith Walls 14:11
It is. Sorry I got that drink because I love the mango and the pineapple flavor but you’re right, that was the RevD. That was a RevD. That’s right. But the one that I drank that day had CBD in it. It was a cucumber. That’s right.
Sammy Nasrollahi 14:28
Yes lemon cucumbers. Like it was so good. As a matter of fact, that is the only all natural, beverages, which is functional, kosher, and obviously it’s got the United States patent pending. It is non narcotic, and is THC free, and I’m glad that we get a chance to talk because a lot of people are scared the minute you say CBD… oh my god, if I drink it. I’m gonna lose my job! Athletes, they were scared that if they drink it, they’re gonna lose their scholarship but no. It has zero THC in order for you to fail, any kind of test, you have to drink about 100 gallons a day!
Honey Smith Walls 15:14
I’m stuttering again, I’m so tickled about this product. I wanted to tell you about the dragon fruit taste that has CBD in it. That’s dragon fruit. Right. It was a really light, light flavor. And it made me want a stronger, sort of, you know what… I need to taste that again… let me have some more. And then, it was so great for that anxiety that was going on over politics. And, man, just to have something that I can drink that I know can help abate my hormones and that emotional thing going on, being triggered by so many different things around me. You know it’s a frustrating time during this pandemic. And when you can take a swig of something and feel better without it being alcohol. Oh, that’s a win.
Anne Smith 16:25
Well, the one one of the things about cannabis, and in a way we talk a lot about inflammation because that’s the root of a lot of illnesses. And a lot of diseases, people have. But right now, to me, that the anti anxiety property is extremely important. It’s huge. I have an anxiety disorder. And so, so I’ve in the past, I’ve had problems with panic attacks. So, to me, to be able to have something that, that it’s not like a drug that will make you say well okay, I’m so anxious. I have to take medication so I can’t do anything… I can’t drive.
(But with Canabix) You’re just normal. It just takes the anxiety away and you can function normally. And you don’t have a chemical in your body that’s going to do bad things to you. And now, as you say with all the things going on in our country, there’s a lot of stress, even when people don’t realize it, just not knowing what’s gonna happen next. And you add that to all of the other things that normally cause stress in our lives, and it makes a huge difference.
Honey Smith Walls 17:51
I also drank one of those before I had a big meeting with some doctors, and I had butterflies in my tummy, you know, I was nervous, and I felt calm, cool and collected so I’ve already started strategizing with your drinks.
Sammy Nasrollahi 18:14
People ask us what are the benefits. If you look at it… CBD plus probiotics helps you with obviously pain and inflammation, boosts the immune system and optimizes the GI function in the body related, and also can help prevent metabolic syndrome, and related disease, I mean, these are all the ones that we’ve been working with Dr. Babon and his team. So, as you mentioned earlier, it helps with anxiety and insomnia can help with the central nervous system and also can help definitely with ADD. And so, again, there are a lot of benefits, and as we spoke before, CBD fights inflammation. But while probiotic aids in digestion, and the absorption of the nutrients, that’s what Anne was, you know, emphasizing on that. So it’s very important to know those benefits.
Anne Smith 19:15
So why would Canabix be any different or any better than the other CBD drinks thrown on the market? Well, we have a functional dosage, the amount of CBD, but we also have the added benefits of having the Nano emulsified CBD, and I know that’s confusing to a lot of people, but the CBD is an oil, and it doesn’t mix with water and most our body is primarily water. So it breaks down, and we don’t have a great ability to absorb it, to have all the benefits, so there’s this like 20% I believe that is bio available to us. But if you use the the emulsified nano technology. Each molecule is smaller and it’s encapsulated in MCT or medium chain triglycerides that allows it to go further in the body, and be absorbed more fully, so you get more like 90% rather than 20%.
Honey Smith Walls 20:32
You know what that looks like, Anne? That chemical kind of looks like a vase full of Cheerios. And if you think of the inside of the Cheerio. The whole part as being where the cannabis goes the CBD molecule or the cannabinoid molecules will go in that cheerio where the hole is. And then the cheerio itself is easily absorbed through the system. (Barking) There go my little mongrels. And so, and so it’s like pouring a whole, you know, glass of Cheerios that are stuffed with cannabinoids down your gullet so that it absorbs better.
Anne Smith 21:22
And with something good, too, because this one thing that is so important with the probiotics. You know a lot of people have problems with digestion because of our diets, all of these oils. Vegetable Oils things, wrong kind of oils, cause inflammation in our gut. And so, if you take a probiotic, and you have an inflamed gut, you’re not going to absorb and use all that probiotic. Oh that’s good point. And so, the CBD helps pull down the inflammation so that more of the probiotic works. And then the probiotic allows the system to absorb more of the nutrients from the food you eat.
Honey Smith Walls 22:13
So that’s why you paired the two. Oh I get it.
Anne Smith 22:18
Right, right. So they increase the power the potency of bioavailability of the other product, the cannabinoids.
Honey Smith Walls 22:23
Oh, I love to find out what’s behind the curtain.
Anne Smith 22:30
And you know, a lot of people have this idea that this is not a good thing but, but, technology was actually developed so that they could give drugs to specific areas that needed it (targeting) rather than the whole body. And they learned so much working with this, but this is the way that you can have better absorption and it’s faster so it goes into your system faster and that’s why you had relief so much faster.
Honey Smith Walls 23:06
Wait a minute. Did I just hear you say that the nanotechnology is targeting, instead of going through the whole body.
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 23:13
Well no, the nanotechnology, was originally developed to treat sort of like tumors so that they could directly target an issue.
Honey Smith Walls 23:26
Anne Smith 23:27
but then as things progressed and they realized there were so many different things that could be done with it, that you know it was new, and this allows it better absorption so it goes through your system.
But initially, it was different, so that’s where the confusion is. There are different types of technology. And so this one is not the original for targeting one spot. But this just allows the body to normalize when you have CBD. A lot is fragile, and it would be destroyed by the liver enzymes in the stomach acid, and it wouldn’t be absorbed as much because it’s destroyed in the acid in your mouth and your esophagus and down into your stomach. So this way, this allows it to go through and hit larger areas, and those receptors that you have. That may be a little complicated for some…
Honey Smith Walls 24:36
Well, my audience is learning. They’re pretty savvy about some of this stuff we’ve been talking for a while, but I’m really glad that you’re explaining it, and you do it so very well, thank you so much for that.
Honey Smith Walls 0:04
We’re still talking about the Canabix product. This drink that I really really love. And it’s spelled C A N A B I X. Where did that name come from? Obviously the cannabis but what’s the X about?
Sammy Nasrollahi 0:24
Well to be honest with you. Ever since CBD came to the market, anything related with cannabinoid cannabis and all that, all the name has been taken, you know, It’s very difficult to even find the name.
Honey Smith Walls 0:38
I am so on the same page with you. I had that that same problem Sammy with my own company, you know, what am I going to call my own company when I was trying to decide, and all the fun names were already grabbed. So I went Latin.
Anne Smith 0:55
That was the thing too… is that people will buy these names, these other website sellers, and then they hold out and they sell it to the to the highest bidder.
Honey Smith Walls 1:08
Right, and I wasn’t willing to cough up, you know $1,000 For a name, or more.
Anne Smith 1:16
Exactly, well you know, we found we came up with some names and we found that they were taken. But since then, we’ve seen companies use that name, and it’s like, Wait a minute. We thought they were taken, but isn’t that interesting, and evidently though some places open and they just don’t catch it for a good while, but then they’ll be open to lawsuits later. You know.
Honey Smith Walls 1:48
Canabix is a good name and it rolls off your tongue and it sounds like the real thing, and it’s a perfect drink for diabetics. For women with hormone issues and any woman on the planet has a hormone issue, no matter what age, let’s just say all ages, let’s just call them all out. And it’s a great drink for you and I’m really tickled to find out about it. You said you know what’s different between Canabix and the others? Well I don’t even know about the others. We’re down here in Florida, and we have extremely limited products down here in the industry.
Anne Smith 2:35
Well there are some drinks out there that just added…they’ve taken a drink and just added cannabis.
Honey Smith Walls 2:44
Cannabis Yeah a little cannabis. Yeah,
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 2:47
You asked about the x. I want to say, you know, You Get Your Fix With Canabix!
Honey Smith Walls 2:53
OOOh I love that. That’s a great slogan, you could even go to a little tune with that.
Sammy Nasrollahi 3:01
She also calls it, the Champagne of CBD.
Honey Smith Walls 3:05
Get your fix with Canabix! Get your fix with Canabix. Champagne….OOh lala, Yeah I can see it Anne.
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 3:18
So, so, yeah,
Sammy Nasrollahi 3:21
By the way I’m really impressed when you talk about our products and your personal testimonial because this is an honest thing to your audience needs to know that you’re not getting paid to do any of these, you’re doing this from the bottom of your heart, you want to educate your audience, so it’s not just like most celebrities that are promoting, all kinds of products, and you never seen them either eat or drink. Now we got a professional athlete promoting subway, and he doesn’t even eat bread! So that just tells you. Right. But as Ann mentioned, this is not the first drink, you know we have, obviously, our flagship products was the REVd line that you mentioned earlier, it’s a beautiful product. And believe it or not, is the only patented products for diabetics in the world, also won the highest award in the world, beverage competition for sugar free products.
Honey Smith Walls 4:22
Oh my goodness.
Sammy Nasrollahi 4:24
And that’s what frustrates me in our country, everything they talk about diet, diet. And unfortunately, a lot of people they fall for it because it says zero calorie, what makes a good diet is either aspartame or Sucralose, and if you study that… you don’t want to put either one.
Honey Smith Walls 4:43
Oh no. Exactly. No, you don’t want either one of those,
Anne Smith 4:48
And they spike your insulin level, and it just like the sugar so if you have problems with with diabetes, or your borderline, then that’s problematic, and also your body thinks that it’s going to get the food is going to get those calories, and it doesn’t get them so later you want, you crave something. So you eat a snack with the calories that you were trying not to have.
Honey Smith Walls 5:19
Exactly. Yeah, we’re so bad at eating, we’re so bad at giving ourselves nutrients, and we’re so bad at taking responsibility for all of that. But, Sammy. I’m glad you brought that point up about me, telling the audience about this product only after I’ve used it and giving a real description of how it affected me and what I tasted… all of that matters to me. And I, you know the difference between a good drink and a bad drink is vetting it for ourselves and being responsible for what we put in our bodies, and I’m, you know, I’m a born and raised little white American girl. That’s been, you know told what to do all my life, drink Pepsi, Dr Pepper, and I had all of them, plus all the others, and loved them, but nobody really said you should really drink something better for yourself. Not until I became an adult and had all these issues.
Anne Smith 6:38
Well, I was very, when I, when I was in college, I worked at the Pizza Hut, on the weekends.
Honey Smith Walls 6:47
My favorite hangout.
Anne Smith 6:49
I ate so much pizza!
Honey Smith Walls 6:52
I can taste it… you just saying that it triggered me.
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 6:55
And in all the salads they had with the dressings, all of the really rich dressings that hadn’t been cut yet cause, you know, a lot of places will cut them a little bit. Nobody said anything. And I was 105 pounds, a little tiny thing, and I ate and ate and ate. And nobody said anything. Just because you’re small, doesn’t mean you’re healthy, and my cholesterol level was almost 300. Oh my goodness. And so they wanted to put me on cholesterol medication and I said no, let me let me do the diet and exercise thing because I started running. But you know, if you don’t know you don’t know. So, you know, I could have had a heart attack. Now I was small, but you know, what was I doing to my arteries. You know, we need to take time to educate ourselves because we’re not getting that education.
Honey Smith Walls 8:01
Alright, let me tell you just Woman to woman so that everybody else knows too because I just learned it myself, not very long ago and I’m embarrassed that it took me this long to learn it, but nobody told me… like you said. You don’t know what you don’t know what you don’t know.
Do you know what hormones a woman needs to be balanced in her life, Always? Estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, always. But when’s the last time you had your hormone levels checked. And when’s the last time your doctor ever said you needed those three hormones, never. So, I really just like talking about what we need as humans, and I need for my drinks to be healthy and when I go to the store and I want something that, you know, I just have never had an option, an option of drinking something that would be good for me and help me with my emotions, I’m just so impressed that Canabix does that for me.
Anne Smith 9:03
Well Honey, I’m so glad that you mentioned the hormones. I really am. Um, this is something that, that scientists have not known for, for centuries, or decades or whatever it is, it’s still fairly recent that, that the neurotransmitters that we used to think were made only in the brain are made in the gut, also. The second brain. And so, I discovered more about the hormones because I was suffering from depression. And a lot of things just weren’t clicking right, and I found a doctor who is very unusual, he said I have a test that most people don’t take, because the insurance company won’t pay for it so a lot of doctors don’t even mention, and it measures the neurotransmitters in your brain. So he did that test for me, along with the hormone, and I found out so much.
Honey Smith Walls 10:19
Sorry. (Naughty puppies barking) There’s no stopping that herd.
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 10:24
And so, but everything works together, it’s not like one section is separate, it’s not like your foot is over here and it has nothing to do with the rest of your body… everything works together. And if your gut is not functioning properly, you aren’t making the neurotransmitters that you need. You aren’t… then that impacts your hormones. So everything plays together and everything has to be balanced and with a bad gut, which you can’t get the nutrients you need… and you can’t make the neurotransmitters, the whole machine, our whole body is off.
Sammy Nasrollahi 11:07
Speaking of the gut and brain having an argument with each other…. and Gut told the Brain that I am actually running this whole body and Brain obviously laughed at him. He says, I’m the one that does that. He goes, okay you want to challenge me? Yeah, I’ll take your challenge. So for about three or four days, Gut was not digesting anything. So Brain is getting foggy. He told him, what’s going on down there? So what I told you? If I don’t digest all the junk you’ve sent down here, you can’t function and you can’t think.
Obviously he agreed. So that’s the problem we have in our culture, we put so much in, if our stomach could talk, it would cuss at us from the stuff that we put in there. I think you’re right, you see, think about it, and we were, and here’s always use this comparison. I heard your dog. If you have a puppy, you go to PetSmart, or, you know, and buy a puppy chow. Yeah, but you take your five years old granddaughter grandbaby to McDonald’s or someplace like that, you take the kids meal, and you order the same cheeseburger a hamburger. One is thinner and was thicker, so the same bun, same fries, same meat, you give it to you as a 50 years old, and you give it to your grandbaby or your baby who is five years old, that baby. Plus, on the top of it, kids meal has a small soda and more, a cookie. So think about what we do to all that sugar. You see, we give our puppies, puppy chow, but we don’t do that for our children. We give the same meat, that adults eat just a smaller portion we give it to our children.
Honey Smith Walls 12:53
Wow. Would we just need to revamp our whole society. Our whole culture we’re so bad to ourselves.
Sammy Nasrollahi 13:04
That’s where we are… the largest nation in the world will. Yeah, we’re the largest nation in the world if you look at the number wise,
Honey Smith Walls 13:13
The doctors call all that inflammation in your gut inflammaging. Oh yeah.
Anne Smith 13:19
Well, one of the things that I had a problem with years before us, working with Hydro One and with Medicinal Cannabis of America… I was in an office, and I would get tired. And so I would go, and I would get a large soda, and a candy bar, and they gave me the energy but then I would get a crash and be too tired. Do it again. Every young girls diet, so you have a cycle, and you hit that cycle and unless you can break this cycle and have something good and nutritious to eat, and then that will stay with you longer. Our society is set up now so that there really isn’t time to prepare food to have nourishing food and digest it properly. We eat something on the go. In a few minutes, and this is something we really need to work on.
Honey Smith Walls 14:25
Sammy Nasrollahi 14:26
One of my partners is Dr. Tommy Sutter, who is one of the most famous dentists in our community, and obviously even with me with NBC and other videos. He says in his office, that when he sees these 13 & 14 years old kids, they all look like they have “Meth Mouth”. I mean, that’s how bad and how much sugar these kids are using, you know. A basic look at their mouth… And so this is important, unbelievably, because all the sugar does, basically is destroys all the three layers of their teeth. And then at the end, obviously they have cavities. So, it is shocking what the pictures that he sees in a 13 & 14 year old kid’s mouth. Think about that. And most of these are going to be wearing dentures by the age of 25.
Honey Smith Walls 15:18
I’m horrified to hear it. I can tell you that they didn’t know any better, I can’t fault them, but my dear Grandmother used to give me Coca Cola in a bottle, before I could walk.
Sammy Nasrollahi 15:32
Well, it won’t surprise me, you mentioned earlier, we were a culture of fast fast fast fast food, and it was a convenience. Exactly. As a matter of fact, we have a People Challenge, so if you have any audience wants to take our Challenge… We have individuals who use our Hydro One products. We give them direction, they lost on average 30 to 50 pounds a year. And so if your audience wanted, like I said, we will give them my email, we’re going to give our website, so we can give Dr. Babon’s information and they can go to pubmed.gov and research about our team, so they know this is a legit company. This is a company that we care for their children we care for parents.
Honey Smith Walls 16:19
That’s exactly why I wanted to talk to you, Sammy and Anne about this product because it’s important to vet the products that you’re consuming, and this company is real and backed by real science, and, and it’s meant and intended to help you, not just put sugar money in the pockets of big daddy.
Anne Smith 16:45
Exactly, and that’s why we haven’t gotten farther along than we have. With any other company we’d be international by now. But people want quick profits and sugar products give them a quick profit… and that’s where people invest, they invest in things that will give a quick return. We knew that this was going to be a lifelong mission, that it was going to be a struggle because you don’t have that many people that will invest in it and back it. So we haven’t had the marketing money that the big companies have, of course,
Honey Smith Walls 17:30
I’d like to see Canabix in every dispensary down here in Florida. I’ve got five dispensaries here within 20 minutes of me. I really want to take. I’ve got this folder that you sent me, and the product line and you’re glossy and it’s gorgeous, and I’ll take it to them and tell them about you and see if we can’t get you started down here in Florida in some of these places that the patients would really respect that product coming. You know, being in the dispensary waiting room while they’re waiting to get into the inner sanctum. You know sometimes it’s a 10 minute wait sometimes it’s 20 minute wait, wouldn’t it be lovely to have a sip of of Canabix in several different flavors?
Anne Smith 18:33
Honey Smith Walls 18:34
Sammy Nasrollahi 18:38
As a matter of fact, a few years ago when CBD came out, especially, you know, two ounce plastic bottle. People didn’t realize that those plastics was absorbing the CBD.
Honey Smith Walls 18:51
Oh yeah, and they seep, they leach other things, other compounds.
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 18:58
If you were paying $100 for CBD, you were not getting $100. worth of CBD.
Honey Smith Walls 19:07
It is the wild wild west in cannabis.
Anne Smith 19:10
Well we’re learning, everyone’s learning. But our goal is to help people. It’s not been a battle for money. It’s not just profit… we really want to help people.
Honey Smith Walls 19:25
Well, I understand the propagandized mind that you have to get past. And that’s the last 100 years of being told it’s terrible, it’s bad, it’s the road to hell. So, when we can, you know, we’re trying to educate the populace so they understand and spread the word along with us, that cannabis was here for, you know, all time and helping us until just 100 years ago, what does that say…
Anne Smith 19:55
Well we have a lot of old hippies out there who are appreciating it.
Honey Smith Walls 20:01
Ain’t that the truth and I’m one of them. I’m 68 so, you know, all this is very meaningful to me, I need, I need help with, you know, all kinds of issues, emotional and physical, that we suffer on a daily basis. I’d rather not take acetaminophen for it or anything, or Tylenol or any of that stuff, you know, I’d rather have a plant based molecule helping me do what it’s meant to do.
Anne Smith 20:35
And just knowing that we have those receptors speaks volumes.
Honey Smith Walls 20:39
It does, because every human and animal on the planet, with the exception of insects have a receptor system that cannabis locks into, and that’s by design… by plant design.
You know when, when humans were less than amoebas, and just one cells it broke off and some remained plants and others became humans. So, we’ve all, we all came from the same place. Yeah, love that about us, we’re all connected and especially you and I have a lot in common.
I know the last time we spoke, we were talking about our grandmothers and their Indian heritage and all of that so I love chatting with you. Thank you so much, do tell us please before we go… any further, how our audience can get in touch with you and, dear audience, push this product to your dispensaries and other quality stores that sell quality medicinal products and other products. This is too good not to take advantage of.
Sammy Nasrollahi 22:04
As a matter of fact, I appreciate that. There are a couple of places that obviously they can go to Amazon, but we also have a special offering on our website at WWW dot HydroOneBeverages.com So the one is spelled O N E. So, if you can put that on for them too. And they can… please make sure to let them know that… you sent them. Tell them “Honey sent us!” so we want to appreciate everything you’ve done for us.
Honey Smith Walls 22:33
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 22:36
My pleasure. We love to help people if you have any question, they can have my email, you can post an email at again email@example.com. Our email.
Honey Smith Walls 22:48
I’ll write all that out for you, audience, dear. Don’t try to spell his name on your own might send you to the hospital.
Sammy Nasrollahi 22:56
One more thing I would love for them they if they want to know more about our background of our company, they need to go check Dr Babak Babon, and they can go to pubmed.gov and you will be very impressed that he leads your team of science, and you will see that the products that you create for us in the last 14 or 15 years. They all have a lot of benefits.
Anne Smith 23:20
There are over 100 different published research articles that these are published in the top peer reviewed magazines and journals, academic journals that they give the research that he’s done on diabetes on different sorts of things using CBD.
Honey Smith Walls 23:44
So what you’re saying to the audience is that this is a vetted product from a quality source from real science, and it’s real, excellent quality.
Sammy Nasrollahi 23:59
And has a US patent pending,
Honey Smith Walls 24:01
And has a US patent pending.
Sammy Nasrollahi 24:05
So we have other products.
Honey Smith Walls 24:08
Well I’m gonna have all of those links in the show notes so you could get the product itself off of amazon.com Canabix
Sammy Nasrollahi 24:22
Sorry, you cannot get Canabix off Amazon because Amazon will not allow you to sell cannabis products yet.
Honey Smith Walls 24:26
Okay so, where do you get it!
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 24:28
The best place for them to go is just to our website.
Honey Smith Walls 24:32
Okay. All right, yeah,
Anne Smith 24:33
We have all our other products on Amazon.
Honey Smith Walls 24:38
All the other products, okay.
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 24:40
Right, but, but they, they have,
Honey Smith Walls 24:42
oh but Amazon’s not letting you sell CBD products!
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 24:46
CBD. But they can buy other products in case you know some of your customers or your audience, they have a special deal with Amazon so they want to use that free shipping and all that with purchasing one of their others so they can go and they see HydroOne Beverages there, but if they want to see all our products Hydro One, and the Canabix, and then they can come to us because we can also make the cases for them. Trial.
Honey Smith Walls 25:16
Oh, mix the cases.
Sammy Nasrollahi 25:18
Oh right, because we make mixed starter cases.
Honey Smith Walls 25:21
Everything is different. It tastes so wonderful, you really get to enjoy the different flavors that they put together. Some of them are really vibrant flavors and others are extremely light and delicate and just lovely over ice.
Sammy Nasrollahi 25:39
Honey, can I ask you to make sure you tell your audience when they purchase our CBD. They’re not designed to drink like a soda. You just want to sip them… sip on it like a nice wine. So when you open one of these nice cold CBD, or Canabix drinks. Just take your time, and drink a little at a time.
Honey Smith Walls 26:02
That’s great advice, and, and it’s nice also to be mindful of what you’re doing so you’re really actually helping your body when you drink Canabix. That’s lovely. All right, dear friends this has been so much fun, and please come back anytime you want to talk about, oh, I don’t care anything trains, planes….
Sammy Nasrollahi 26:28
We really appreciate your passion. We love to have more people in our country, like you, that you’re passionate, you’re not doing this just to make another penny or $1 or whatever, you have it right from the bottom of your heart, and that’s true. Our company, in the last 14 years, we invest about $8 million of our money to develop these products.
Honey Smith Walls 26:49
I’m really proud to meet you all. I’m really, really proud.
Anne Smith & Sammy Nasrollahi 26:55
We’re proud to meet you too, and all your audience.
Honey Smith Walls 26:57
Thanks so much. All right, dear hearts. Thanks. Bye bye. Bye bye.

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 historical leaders in cannabis science:
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: CannabaVerum.com
