Welcome to the Cannaba Verum podcast, the cannabis truth podcast. I speak the language of cannabis freely and uncensored, while educating my audience on the safe use of this live Plant Therapy. You should know what’s in your cannabis, what’s good and what’s not. It does not come with an FDA stamp of approval yet, using cannabis mindfully, as medication is a different concept in the healthcare philosophy of the past 100 years. There’s a lot to learn and consider cannabis is not dangerous, but it is not harmless, either. This is honey Smith walls, a 21st century cannabis shaman here to explain the language of cannabis in historical, political, and scientific terms, so you can make educated decisions about the medicine you ingest.
Friends… I don’t know about you but I wake up more nervous this morning than the day before… the closer we get to Voting on Nov.3. Yesterday I heard the President talk about voting the day after, on the wrong day. Plan your Vote… if you haven’t already. There are unscrupulous people in charge right now.
If a team of people can’t win a contest without cheating then that team is corrupt. Yall know that…. By giving false and misleading information to win a contest of power and leadership, you just lost the foundation of trust.
There was a concerted effort to give false and misleading propaganda of cannabis over the last 100 years to thwart the industry from infringing on the giants of our nation, paper products from trees, cotton products for clothing, alcohol products for inebriation, food products for humans and animals, bio-fuel for cars and planes, plastic products, water filtration, and largest among them, pharmaceuticals. All of that was lost to us but the human toll on our society because of a handful of corrupt men at the lead is the most devastating blow to our society. All the people of color treated so heinously with no more regard than that of disgust… That is NOT the kind of person I am or want to be near. My tribe has all kinds and colors and genderbenders. Mostly musical, political, and comical.
Look, we have plenty of evidence you can find online from people in science who are finally telling us the truth about cannabis. Don’t listen to a politician or preacher or anybody who hasn’t been educated on the subject. And that education had to be deliberately sought! It wasn’t easy to find answers just anywhere for me! But you’ll find four years of intense cannabis study on my website about my credentials. That’s not what the state of Florida demands of an M.D. who wants to get into the business… this state only requires a few hours of review on the laws of FL regarding cannabis with a test on generalities. But that’s gonna get fixed.
I’m not asking you to believe me. I’m asking you to believe the science that has proven the benefits of cannabis to our world.
Now let me start with the most important things for you to remember about cannabis.
You have to find CLEAN CANNABIS
You have to KNOW which kind to USE
You have to Learn how to stay in CONTROL
And as a bonus… I’m gonna help you save money until the bastards start insuring it.
And I’m gonna tell you something really controversial right now! Break….
If yer still using street weed from a dealer…. and it doesn’t matter if it’s yer cousin, yer sister, yer best friend’s dad… if that product has NOT been 3rd-party lab-tested for contamination, you can bet yer sweet aspergillos it’s got something in it that shouldn’t be… pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, molds, mildews, bacteria, batshit, and heavy metals.
It won’t be the cannabis that kills you… it’ll be the mold found clinging to your lungs… suffocating them. And P.S. Heavy metals cause brain damage. So tell me what yer dealer said when you asked about contamination??? Some BS story, no doubt, about how they grow organically. Well growing “organically” means somethin different to lotsa people and it does NOT mean the product is without contamination. Molds and Mildews don’t spray out of a bottle… they’re live… and neither do heavy metals sucked up from the earth. There are already many autopsy reports of mold killing cancer patients who were trying to find a little relief in pot for all their symptoms… but didn’t know about… or consider the contamination in the street weed they bought, nor how truly delicate their immune systems were to it.
THIS is what worries me about the Adult-Use Attitude. It just doesn’t seem like anybody in that arena cares about the contamination…. they just talk about the high. I don’t see our states taking the precaution of mandating contaminant-free products, no matter which kind of cannabis, hemp or marijuana. Michigan is a perfect example. They make you sign a paper that says you KNOW yer not buying clean weed!! So you can’t sue them if it harms you!!
In my humble opinion, everybody is a patient. Even those wanting to use recreationally. And that’s FINE!!! USE it recreationally!!! But tell me just exactly how healthy you are eating in our fast food society… How well is your immune system again???
We must demand SAFE products and until the industry puts some effort into this philosophy, we’re doing more harm to ourselves and the two-step wahoo.
Make this your new mantra when yer buyin product:
“Gotta 3rd-party lab-test on this?”
If there isn’t one… put that product down and go find a new source.
Next… The best way to protect yourself from unscrupulous dealers… get yer pot card. You won’t be turned away. The pot doctors will find some label of issues if you don’t already have one to speak of. That comment in itself is a little jaded and I’m not happy to say it… but it’s true. The good news is, in my humble opinion, anybody who feels they need or want cannabis as a remedy, should use it… appropriately.
So here’s the process:
Find a pot doctor near you… Just google “pot dr near me”… find the cheapest one. They are NOT your regular doctor. Unless you’re going to a cannabis Specialist like Dr. Anthony Mazo in Melbourne (Neurologist), or Dr. Barry Gordon in Venice (30 yr/ER Specialist), or Dr. Genester Wilson-King in Eustis (OBGYN)… all of these doctors specialized in Cannabis after their other major practice. These are just some of the amazing leaders in the industry in FL now if yer lucky enough to see one of them.
But unless you’re near them, a new pot doctor will be able to get you the $75. State Card you’re after… plus the doctor’s fee ($100-$300). The difference is in their services in that the other specialists really know about cannabis and its effects and how to help you figure out your dose. If yer spending $200/month on street pot… you’ll spend $50-$100 more on Dispensary pot. I know… freaks me out too. So I’ll teach you how to conserve.
But here’s the thing: You Are Your Own Guinea Pig With Cannabis. That’s just the way it is.
Now know this… never a death by cannabis in the history of the world. But there’s about 100 deaths annually from peanut allergies… Marijuana – Safer than Peanuts.
So if you already know that marijuana makes you nervous or anxious… and it can for some people, there’s a fix for that. You can use marijuana and hemp together to tame the high… This is where you become a little guinea pig.
The process begins by using equal measures in the tiniest amount… its called Micro-Dosing. And it’s simple…. you just use the least amount to start, wait till you feel an effect to see if you need more. Increase after waiting the appropriate length of time… which is different depending on what and how you administered the meds. Jot down your progress… Continue the process till you feel relief… noting amount taken and time.
This process keeps you in complete control.
If you begin to feel anxious instead of relief, back off of the Marijuana (Thc) or increase the Hemp (CBD). It is the Cannabidiol in hemp (the CBD) that is taming the Tetrahydrocannabinol (Thc) in marijuana. Break…
Now, the staff at the dispensaries will help you tremendously… even if they all look like they’re twelve years old. So don’t be afraid to ask them what’s good for this issue or that. Don’t bother learning all the stupid names they call the different products. Those will be gone sooner than you think. It’s kinda like two industries mashed together and they can’t decide if they wanna grow up. The “let’s get high bunch” and “the old farts who just wanna feel better and not fall down in the middle of the night when they get up to go pee”. Getting old has sooo many issues the young can’t begin to imagine and don’t wanna hear about either. But you can be generally descriptive with them… somethin for sleep, somethin to wake up and get rid of pain from sleeping, something to help in afternoon, something for movie-night, something for pain, something to tolerate my spouse… you get the idea.
Can’t afford this route yet? Here’s some economical ways to minimize yer street contamination risk and get help with painful inflammatory issues and anxiety and PTSD and Irritable Bowel Syndrome and more…
Begin using the process of Micro-Dosing. The tiniest amounts! And stop sharing yer weed! And stop using joints… yer burnin up half the product!! Use a tiny one-hitter instead with the smallest amounts of marijuana so you can tell how much a dose is that gives you relief. Then only use that dosage, put it down or back in the kit and go do something.
Now… find a good hemp product… stay with me here. I know you only do the “real thing” but I’m tellin ya, the juju in hemp is the real deal too! It is extremely powerful and can be made even more potent by using a raw recipe that doesn’t destroy the delicate acidic compounds that are even more potent that a product which has been decarboxylated (heated up).
So now you’ve got two cannabis products and you’ll use Hemp for inflammatory issues like tummy-IBS and the PottyPotPot for more acute pain. Also, marijuana is so great for sleep because it helps those looping worrying thoughts and nasty memories fade into the background of yer mind, giving you an emotional rest.
So the whole point of using over-the-counter hemp is to save money. But you must be good to herself and only buy tested hemp…. clean hemp… grown like medicine, because it is medicine!!
I advocate a couple of stores here in Melbourne who I trust, American Shaman has 3 stores nearby and there’s Elev8ed downtown Melbourne, plus, I love and trust Charlotte’s Web which you can buy online.
Buy using the cheaper hemp medicine, and also by using only the flower in a one-hitter, you should be able to maintain your current costs, excepting the annual card and doctor’s visit. Break…
So you’ve learned how weed can be dangerously contaminated and needs 3rd-party lab-testing to prove it’s harm-free
You learned how to supplement your street weed until you can afford to go legal by using otc hemp.
You learned how to minimize your health risks in street weed by Micro-Dosing to find your sweet spot and by combining hemp to your regimen to take care of other inflammatory and spastic issues that will ease pain, too.
I am scared for us all if we’re unable to change the status quo come November 3.Get out there and vote if you haven’t already… only a week left.

You’ve been listening to another Cannaba Verum podcast with 21st century cannabis shaman Honey Smith Walls, about the importance of using safe hemp and marijuana products. Unless otherwise proven by a reputable third party lab test, please be advised that all street weed is contaminated. It may do grave harm to a patient with a delicate immune system. I challenge you to check the veracity of my statements in each episode by checking the medical citations posted on my blog at Cannaba Verum.com.
