Honey Smith Walls 0:02

Welcome to the Cannaba Verum podcast, the cannabis truth podcast. I speak the language of cannabis freely and uncensored. While educating my audience on the safe use of this live Plant Therapy.

You should know what’s in your cannabis. what’s good and what’s not. It does not come with an FDA stamp of approval yet. using cannabis mindfully as medication is a different concept and Western healthcare philosophy, specifically of the past 100 years there’s a lot to learn and reconsider.

The information you’ll find here comes straight from the scientist and clinicians doing the work and reporting their findings in real time through various online outlets. The scientific truth of cannabis is finally getting out and is wide open for all to see at respected medical sites like  and JAMA, the Journal of American Medical Association…

And I’m right there in the thick of it with all those titans of medicine… as a fly on the wall… because I’m not a doctor. I didn’t go to med school. I took dozens of private cannabis courses offered by cannabis scientists online over the past few years and slowly began to understand the bigger picture. But I’m not a medical doctor or scientist. Oh I can talk to one about cannabis and hopefully inspire more doctors and patients alike, to research the facts as we know them today, and decide alternative health paths for themselves.

This is Honey Smith Walls, a 21st century cannabis shaman, not a doctor, not a scientist. Just here to explain this great big story and the language of cannabis in its historical, political and scientific terms. So you can make educated decisions about the medicine you choose to ingest.

(Guest Promo)

Hello my friends, Dr. Codi Peterson is back to finish our cannabis chat but let me explain a little about him. Dr. Peterson is a pediatric pharmacist turned cannabis expert which is what he’s passionate about but he works both aspects full-time.  You might regard pediatrics and cannabis a radical mix but not when you know as much about it as he does. 7 out of 14 days he’s in an overnight emergency department. He’s getting his Masters in Cannabis from the School of Pharmacy in Baltimore, which to my knowledge, is an American first and he’s become involved with one of the best cannabis science podcasts on the planet, the Cannigma. Go to to find out more and put it on your calendar as a must listen! I’ll also have that link in my show notes. He’s formulating plans with other medical advocates to help legislators understand how to frame regulations for patients that do no harm. Dr. Codi is one of my few trusted sources in cannabis science and is leading the way with many other trusted medical cannabis experts… not only out in California but across the nation and around the world. He’s part of the real engine of this movement and I’m so thrilled he could spend a little time with us. Please enjoy one of my favorite teachers… Dr. Codi Peterson.

Promo Dr. Mazo

Hey my friends, I want to give you a tip about somebody I know who will really give you the help you need. Dr. Anthony Mazo Majorcan is an MD, highly-rated neurology specialist and psychiatrist in Melbourne, Florida, with more experience in headache, epilepsy and HIV issues than other specialists around here.

Dr. Mazo was the first clinician to study the cannabis plant and become a medical marijuana physician in Melbourne, when it was finally legalized in Florida in 2016. His understanding of the mechanism and effects of this live Plant Therapy will set you on the path to relief in just no time.

Dr. Mazo is not quick to prescribe traditional synthetic chemicals when he knows that gentle cannabis will likely give the necessary relief. I know this to be true because I had to see him for my own neuropathic issues. He did not prescribe synthetics. He told me to get a particular kind of cannabis instead and use it in a specific way to find relief. And that is what every doctor in America should have in their little black bags.

Dr. Mazo is not a typical cannabis-naive clinician in this wild, wild west of unregulated cannabis and all of that right now in this particular moment in cannabis history. You see? Those doctors will just see you for about five minutes and grant you a Florida cannabis card. But he’s not like that. He actually studied the plant and understands it. And his practice has been here for, I don’t know, maybe 20 years or something like that in neurology.

If you’re looking for a cannabis expert to help with your real issues, who understands you emotionally as well as physically, he’s a brain guy too, remember, a psychiatrist, then call Dr. Mazo. Make an appointment today.

He doesn’t know I’ve made this little commercial for him so be sure and tell him where you heard about him. Just tell him Honey sent you. He’ll get a real kick out of it.

Dr. Mazo Majorcan specializes in cannabis therapy, neurology and sleep medicine. He’s rated five out of five on the Care Dash, a patient’s review site of clinicians. And he accepts tele-health appointments as long as it’s still legal, not sure about the rolling legislation right now. But he does if he can legally and is affiliated with the Health First Holmes Regional Medical Center here in Melbourne. His clinic is named the Brevard Neuro Center. Yeah, I’m sure you’ve heard about it already. It’s been here forever. Dr. Anthony Mazo… an MD. And the phone number is…. and I’ll have all this in the show notes. 321-733-2711 He’s on NASA Boulevard. You know that real nice street down there in the main part of Melbourne. 315 East NASA Boulevard, great staff. You’re really going to enjoy your experience with Dr Mazo because he’s going help you feel better.

Honey Smith Walls 7:23

I’m just gobsmacked. I love listening to you and I don’t even have any questions.

Dr. Codi Peterson 7:28

It’s not just about female reproduction. It’s about male reproduction as well.

Honey Smith Walls 7:32

I saw you talking about their “little swimmers”.

Dr. Codi Peterson 7:35

Yeah, the little swimmers exactly! You’ve been peepin my LinkedIn. So the truth of the matter is, even on, you know, when we talk about pregnancy or cannabinoids, we always talk about how it engages with cannabinoid receptors. And these cannabinoid receptors, when we’re explaining them, are almost always on neurons or brain cells or nervous cells. And that’s fine. That’s a really easy way to conceptualize how this works.

But the truth is the endocannabinoid system is very important. It’s not limited to just nervous cells, although it is very abundant there. It’s basically in all the other cell types in the body or at least every organ system in some way or fashion, the endocannabinoid system is there. And it turns out, it’s also all over men, like sperm of mammals. And so the endocannabinoids are produced within sperm in order to respond to their environment, like being in a vagina, for example, and telling the sperm how fast to swim, and how hard to swim… potentially even when to swim when not to swim.

Honey Smith Walls

Because the ECS is regulatory.

Dr. Codi Peterson

It’s regulatory and helps helps each cell in its body respond to the dynamic environment in which it lives and in the case of sperm, you know, there’s certain times in their life where all of a sudden their whole environment shifts, and they’ve got to know what to do and they got to have the energy and the cellular programming to do it. And part of that is the endocannabinoid system.

Honey Smith Walls 9:15

We are just one big bag of communication aren’t we?

Dr. Codi Peterson 9:19

We are in fact, that’s what this is all about… this endocannabinoid system is a feedback messenger system, right? So a message meaning communication, it’s it’s the body’s ability to say okay, we’ve got the message you know, now let’s correct course. In the same way, you know, when you’re steering your your car very lightly as you go down the highway, you don’t just touch it to the left, right, there’s like a constant left, right, left right in various micro fashion. And you don’t go jerking it around because you’re gonna fly off the highway, right and you can have consequences from jerking the steering wheel, but the endocannabinoid system makes sure that those jerks are just nice little nice little taps and you can kind of stay down the road. Nice straight narrow of homeostasis.

Honey Smith Walls 10:12

That word homeostasis. Man we use that word a lot. But it’s a good word it, you know, it’s it’s a great word and people need to learn about helping their body be at its optimum and, and doing all of that, but we’re not taught that as kids really. I can’t wait to see what fresh educational ideas are going to be about helping people understand themselves more. I think you know, as we’re growing up.

Dr. Codi Peterson 10:47

The next frontier, Honey, is connecting this for people in a way that, that is pertinent to their lives, right? People often look at me like, why do I care about any of this? Why do I care that the endocannabinoid system is in every major organ system in my body, right? Why do I care that it’s lipid signaling? What does that matter? Right? Yeah. But all of a sudden, when you start to think about it in a way that, oh, this is critically important to all of my health. The function of this system is dictated by the fats available in my body, right and we know that the fact that we consume can have tremendous health impacts on us, right? This is why we always talk about healthy fats, bad fats, saturated fats, Omega threes, Omega six, there’s all this complexity around fats. And one of the primary reasons, all that matters is, because of the endocannabinoid system. So really, nutrition, diet, exercise, it’s all things that we are well established in the literature to have beneficial effects or ways we don’t fully can always explain are very much so influenced tremendously by the endocannabinoid system.

Honey Smith Walls 12:01

So what’s gonna happen first, are we going to get the patients educated first, or is corporate going to push what the patients are going to get?

Dr. Codi Peterson 12:14

Oh, that’s a fine question. It’s really going to depend on the political winds. We already started, where consumers know far more than health care professionals as a general rule, so we’re already behind that eight ball.

Honey Smith Walls

Is it weird?

Dr. Codi Peterson

Yeah. It’s weird that when I talk to patients or consumers that they understand what I’m talking about more than physicians. Yeah that’s weird.

On the plus side, though, physicians, pharmacists, nurses, health care professionals in general are already trained in how to think about these types of substances, how to manage side effects, how to counsel patients, so we already have all the skills set up. So really now, it’s about getting the information into the hands of these healthcare professionals in an accessible and digestible way so that then they can apply that.

Honey Smith Walls:

Trusted way.

Dr. Codi Peterson

Yeah, in a way that that they need, they deserve. The endocrine system connects all these dots, it connects. You know, they say that we have a, a gut brain, right? This gap between our second brain.

Honey Smith Walls:

Second brain, right?

Dr. Codi Peterson

We know that the endocannabinoid system is very important to that second brain. We know that the microbiome the bacteria in our gut dictate the way that our body produces and destroys endocannabinoids. We know that eating fruits and vegetables rich in in phytonutrients supports our endocannabinoid system and that many plant molecules actually interact with it. For example, a flavonoid in broccoli, or in many, many fruits and vegetables, known as camphoral has been found in laboratories to inhibit the breakdown of anandamide.

Well, technically to inhibit the enzyme that breaks down anandamide, but the point is, nature interacts with the endocannabinoid system, because the endocannabinoid system evolved with us and not with us with or organisms that were here long before us. It’s estimated that the first semblance of the endocannabinoid system showed up in a distant relative of humans known as the sea squirt.

Yes, the sea squirt is a distant relative of humans, and it expressed the first cannabinoid-like signaling around 600 million years ago. And since that time, the endocannabinoid system has been preserved amongst almost all evolution, and shared amongst now all mammals on planet earth. All reptiles, all birds, and every other animal with a spine has an endocannabinoid system or something of the sorts or like their own version. So it’s really incredibly important to all of us and veterinarians and, and physical trainers and nursing and pharmacy and all of the above.

Honey Smith Walls 15:13

Um, standardizing the plant… how’s has that going to happen?

Dr. Codi Peterson 15:20

Standardizing the plant…

Honey Smith Walls 15:22

So that we can get the same product twice in a row. Because I feel like out here, that’s just not possible.

Dr. Codi Peterson 15:30

Well, I mean, these are inherent problems with agricultural products is that they grow in, you know, waves, so to speak, and the kind of cannabis it’s an annual, I mean, it’s made its life cycle is to blossom one year, and mate and then pass on its genetics to the next, you know, and then to never get another duplicate of that product.

Now, we’ve cloned these plants historically, especially in the last 35-40 years. Before that, we were using seeds and now today, we’re using you know, cellular technologies and other sort of high level science techniques to get even more reproducible results. But Honey, plants will always be plants. Can you ensure that all the plants are getting equal water, equal sun, equal, you know, CO2 exposure in the air…

Honey Smith Walls

That’s never going to be?

Dr. Codi Peterson

No, but there are technologies coming that could drive forward a level of isolation impurity at an affordable rate that was wasn’t previously thought of and that’s what’s called industrial agriculture, or sorry that no, that’s not the word that’s Cellular Agriculture is the word. That’s that overnight brain. Cellular Agriculture is where we’re introducing sugar to certain bacteria or yeast. They eat that sugar, and they poop out cannabinoids! Legit! In the same way that that alcohol is made where yeast consumes sugar and creates alcohol. Yeah, they’re doing the same thing, but they’ve programmed it to make cannabinoids.

Honey Smith Walls 17:14

Wow. That is totally sci fi.

Dr. Codi Peterson 17:18

It’s the future.

Honey Smith Walls 17:19

It’s awesome. It’s really awesome.




Seg 2

Dr. Codi Peterson 17:27

It’s gonna make an interesting market in the future because it’s going to be very difficult for farmers to compete, at least on the production of isolate products and on the production of of those things that we find are really good from this process of cellular agriculture.

Honey Smith Walls 17:45

Yeah, the science is the science is glorious with it.

Dr. Codi Peterson 17:48

I know it’s my favorite.

Honey Smith Walls 17:50

I’m happy when you’re when you’re freed, you know when the science is freed, to to explore and do everything you know, you need to understand the plant.

Dr. Codi Peterson 18:02

Health care professionals were afraid to have this conversation even just I would have been just a few years ago, I probably wouldn’t have been doing podcasts, maybe. But it was only in the last really less than two years I decided that I wanted to pursue this the get my master’s degree in Medical Cannabis science and really start spreading this crazy important information amongst so many people who need to know it.

Honey Smith Walls 18:28

Just the fact that you can get your Masters at the University of Maryland, right, in Baltimore.

Dr. Codi Peterson 18:36

Yeah, the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy no less.

Honey Smith Walls 18:39

Ah yeah. Just the fact that you can do that now is utterly gobsmacking because I’m right there with you. You know, when, no too very long ago, I was chased out of a doctor’s office for even asking him how I could go about getting a cannabis card, you know, and trying to use cannabis to fix me. And it was embarrassing and humiliating and he brought me back a sheet of paper and said sign read this and sign here and don’t ever speak about this again or I’ll, I’ll drop you as a patient. And that attitude you know, hopefully is gone now. Hopefully,

Dr. Codi Peterson 19:14

I wouldn’t hold my breath there, Honey. I mean, mostly, it’s reducing, but very much so especially if that doctor was a pain doctor.

Honey Smith Walls

He was.

Dr. Codi Peterson

Yeah, yeah. And so these doctors create pain contracts where you have to follow their regimen and make sure that you’re not stealing narcotics. And a lot of these doctors are including cannabis on that list of substances that cannot be consumed.

So in order to treat your own pain condition, you’re not allowed to use herbal cannabis because the doctor doesn’t want that and that it’s controlled substance so many patients will have to choose… do they want to continue to get their Oxycodone or their Trazodone or sorry, Trazodone is the wrong word, or Tramadol that has been helping them deal with pain, or do they want to continue or even try cannabis medicine? And unfortunately, we haven’t struck good balance on serving patients here.

Honey Smith Walls 20:07

No, not yet. But it’s, you know, you and I are talking about it and you’re on one side of the planet and I’m on the other, it’s coming. It’s a big machine now and it’s just going to get bigger this cannabis train and, and people like you’re really making an amazing difference. Cody, it takes a lot of courage and bravery to speak out. It took me a long time not to be afraid anymore and, and then suddenly, I was like, oh, you should do more research… you know for that attitude!

Dr. Codi Peterson 20:48

Exactly. That’s where I’m at now is like, Oh, you just must not understand. This isn’t a question…. like this isn’t a mystery anymore. So cannabis works and why it works. Yeah, this makes sense.

Honey Smith Walls 21:06

Yeah. Exactly. So are you in the Netherlands for Christmas?

Dr. Codi Peterson 21:12

The Netherlands. Ah, no, I mean, I mean, California.

Honey Smith Walls 21:20

Weren’t you talking about that?

Dr. Codi Peterson

Say it again.

Honey Smith Walls

Weren’t you weren’t talking about going to the Netherlands?

Dr. Codi Peterson 21:26

No. I want to go. Will you take me?

Honey Smith Walls 21:30

You know, in fact, I thought it was you. It must have been somebody else and they were talking about it not having any cannabis there. So I was like,

Dr. Codi Peterson 21:41

Oh, I think Nick Schrader, maybe?

Honey Smith Walls

Yeah, that’s who it was. You’re absolutely right. Yeah.

Dr. Codi Peterson

Yeah. People you associate with me?

Honey Smith Walls 21:47

Yes. People I associate with you..  other smarty pants who talk about cannabis all the time.

Dr. Codi Peterson 21:52

Yeah, I know. Right. And I feel this way too… my poor wife. She’s got to be just just so sick of hearing about the endocannabinoid system.

Honey Smith Walls 22:02

My husband is the same and he’s 89 years old. He thought for the longest time that I was going to get us in so much trouble that our car and our house would be taken away and I wouldn’t be arrested and we lose everything. He was fearful. He was really fearful. Yeah. And, and he went through that for a couple of years and then and then things settled down you know… Just getting your medical marijuana license was a relief for him. And it must be for many, many other family members who had that fear from the propaganda of the past.

Dr. Codi Peterson 22:41

Yeah, it will in fear of, you know, somewhat real um, you know, threats legal implications right. People drive truck or people have jobs they work for the city or there’s a lot of things… pensions that are raised like a bunch exactly important life shit that is being unfortunately, taken away or threatened to be taken away for, for people using and consuming a plant. One that one that doesn’t, doesn’t do any of the relative harms that other plants that we fully accept do. Tobacco is killing millions of people globally every year. Cannabis isn’t! Why are we letting people smoking tobacco? Because cannabis makes me think a little differently?

Honey Smith Walls

It’s corrupt.

Dr. Codi Peterson

Get out of here.

Honey Smith Walls 23:23

Yeah, no, it’s just purely corrupt. It’s just purely corrupt, but we’ll get we’ll get there and we’ll get past that. And then it will be a free plant for everybody to you know, look into and, and gain help from. I hear you’re attending the World Hash Day.

Dr. Codi Peterson 23:44

Well, I mean, it’s I think it’s a digital event as far as, as far as I’m aware, right.

Honey Smith Walls 23:49

What, what is their goal at the World Hash Day?

Dr. Codi Peterson 23:55

I think they’re trying to promote a community around, around you know, hash the cannabis culture. And then there was a special I believe philanthropy aspect of this. I was invited I must say that this is not something that I planned but, I was at home I was like, you know, I’ll do World Hash Day.

Honey Smith Walls 24:17

Well, you’re you’re all over the place, Dr. Peterson, and I’m so impressed for you and it’s so lovely to be able to be able to find you in so many places on different podcasts, on Clubhouse, at LinkedIn, at various seminars through SCC, the Society of Cannabis Clinicians and, and all the more of what your you and Dr. Johnson are doing out there in California with the pharmacists coalition.

Dr. Codi Peterson 24:48

Absolutely. Don’t forget about the Cannigma either I work for is Israeli-based cannabis media startup where I’m doing all sorts of writing, educating, videos and things of that sort. So…

Honey Smith Walls 25:01

I want you to know, I even put the Cannigma and a bunch of other podcasts that we listened to because of all of you on my own podcast show notes. So that everybody can make sure to go there too. I’m just, I just want to amplify what you’re doing. And the Cannigma is a fantastic podcast to listen to.

Dr. Codi Peterson 25:24

Thank you. I’m actually taking the reins over a little bit for that, for that podcast, Honey, so I’m co-hosting this season.  Cannigma

Honey Smith Walls


Dr. Codi Peterson

Very excited. It’s my first hosting experience with podcasts. And…

Honey Smith Walls 25:38

Well, you’re a natural.

Dr. Codi Peterson 25:39

Yeah, I’d like to talk right yeah. Now I love cannabis. Yeah, and all of a sudden now I can you know, I don’t want to say make a living but I can, you know, have part of my job be, you know, do a podcast about my favorite things. And it just seems like, you know, my when my wife encouraged me and has sort of has been supporting me going back to school right now. Pretty much she anytime I’m complaining or anytime I’m like, Oh, I’m so tired. She’s like, well, you are pursuing your dreams. I have to shake it off and you’re right.

Honey Smith Walls 26:18

No kidding and being able to design your own life is so important to one’s happiness.

Dr. Codi Peterson 26:26

Yeah, and you feel like you have you know, autonomy and are driving yourself forward.

Honey Smith Walls 26:31

Exactly. Honey, I’m so grateful that you share this time with with me and with all our friends who are listening. I’m just really grateful to you, Codi for all that you do for all of us. And I’m just going to be hanging on your coattails, so you’ll be seeing me around.

Dr. Codi Peterson 26:48

Yeah, Honey, thank you so much for having me on here. I wish you and Cannaba Verum the best and hope we can do this again and yeah, follow along… things are only going to progress. Finally I can honestly say that I think that the momentum within the industry and within the world is going… we’re finally to a point where, not finally, we are finally on track to to change and shift the paradigm. So yeah, don’t stop, keep talking, keep sharing your message and I’ll do the same and then I’ll see you at the finish line.

Honey Smith Walls 27:24

Thank you darling. So wonderful hanging out with you. We’ll see you soon.

Dr. Codi Peterson

Thank you so much, Honey. Have a great day.

Honey Smith Walls

Bye bye.

Dr. Codi Peterson

Bye bye.

Post Promo New Year Changes

I can’t thank Dr. Cody enough for coming and spending a little time with us. It was just so precious of him to let us know what’s going on inside his world and how we should be thinking about all kinds of things.

The New Year’s coming up really fast. And I just wanted to remind you, that Cannaba Verum is paring down to one episode a week and it’s gonna come out on Mondays. So we’ll be giving you the most exciting content that we can find around here and by the “we”, I mean me and the little rat pack of mongrels who chase me around all day. So we’re going to be going all over the state and maybe even outside of Florida to connect with people near and dear to your heart that will be meaningful to you.

Thank you so much for your patronage during this pandemic 2021 I’m so looking forward to get face-to-face with everybody in the new year.

Hey, it’s me again. I just keep forgetting to ask you dear audience if you would mind. Just taking a moment to go to your particular platform, whether it’s Apple or Spotify or whoever you listen to your podcast on and liking my program. Maybe leaving a little comment, gosh, you know how it works. It’s so helpful to my business. If you just leave a little comment or ,or especially a LIKE thank you so much. You know how much I appreciate you… Kiss Kiss Kiss.

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, you’re 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 Cannigma with Dr. Codi Peterson, 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 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 at

Show Notes:    

Dr. Codi Peterson enthralls with more cannabis conversation that astounds even me when he begins explaining the depths of control our endogenous cannabinoid OME has on our body. Holy COW! The crazy science you’ll learn with Dr. Codi is both fascinating and funny! I can’t wait for you to hear the rest of the story with Dr. Codi Peterson… right now!          

#CannabisEducation only comes after a lot of scientific exploration.

And #CannabisScience is the only way to know the truth.

CV 144 Origins Matter

I’ve been reading some historical stuff about medicine and cannabis and origins and the like… Origins are so interesting and often not what you’d expect.  

One of the main symbols in my logo is an ancient historical graphic depicting medicinal help. I’m referring to the Rod of Asclepius that I drew on top of a cannabis leaf. It’s a stick with a worm or a snake around it.

CV 142 Consider This
