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.
So hello everybody… I want to talk about something you probably don’t know you were born with… It was only discovered in 1992… by a scientist in Israel named Raphael Mechoulam (1). Everyone has it… even an invertebrate slug at the bottom of the ocean…
But before I go there… I want you to know you’re gonna learn the most important money-saving facts about how to choose safe cannabis; hemp or marijuana.
I’m going to teach you how to determine a safe bottle of CBD from a contaminated one… no matter what form you choose, raw hemp or marijuana flower from a licensed dispensary or some over-the-counter cannabis products sold online or in a brick and mortar store…. Whether it comes in a bottle, as a dry leaf, in a drink mix, or transdermal patch…. you should know how to make sure it’s safe to consume.
You need to know how to choose a product that will not harm you. Especially since the FDA has yet to approve any cannabis products except one exorbitantly overpriced untouchable medicine they call Sativex… which is a CBD isolate you can buy over the counter in any hemp shop now that is NOT, FDA approved but will work the same as their incredibly expensive prescription isolate.
The FDA has only just started accepting applications for approval of cannabis products – this month. But that’s a start!!
I’d ask how yer doin but I’m too wrapped up in my own inability to act like a professional since hibernating for almost a year. The thing about not facing people is that you literally don’t see their micro-body language that signals so much more than just a verbal response. It’s confusing. I overthink responses and don’t get it as right as I used to when I could read body language. I need emotional therapy… like the rest of the world. And with seriously emotional events of tradition coming up… I want to talk to you about how to mitigate some of those anxieties. I’ve got a plan…
There’s a way you can use cannabis safely to de-stress without breakin the bank… and I’m gonna tell you how. Further… for those of you who are afraid of the high in marijuana… I’m talking about using hemp for the relief of anxiety and it does NOT get you high. And for those of you who neeeed the high from Thc, you can still learn how to save money and use it safely. Because along with Covid-19, contamination runs rampant through the cannabis industry. And that looks like molds, mildews, bacteria, pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, and heavy metals. Aspergillos mold is listed as the reason of death on the autopsies of people with critically weakened immune systems, like me. I’ve had chronic fatigue and arthritis for 30 years that I nurtured with an inappropriate diet. It was the contamination in the street weed I used for 3 years from the same source that sent me racing slowing towards a wheelchair. I was shutting down and didn’t know why.
When circumstances made my dealer move and Florida flipped for cannabis, I got my card and began using clean weed. It was like a parting of the Red Sea of Brain Fog. Turns out… all that contamination I was ingesting to alleviate the pain and nausea of being sick all the time…was slowly poisoning me. Took 3 years for me to realize it… and that was under dr care taking regular blood tests, weekly B12 shots, plus a handful of old lady drugs for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and the almighty anti-depressant they always want to put a woman on… trying to figure me out. They knew I smoked pot but without any education on it, they had no idea what they were looking for or what they were seeing.
So a little background science is that every human and animal on the planet (except insects) started life with an endo-cannabinoid system of receptors in their body(2)… even that invertebrate slug at the bottom of the ocean has one like yours.
Here’s why it’s an important discovery…That system of receptors is responsible for regulating sleep, mood, memory, stress, appetite, energy, and female reproduction.
It works whether you use cannabis or not. And new discovery tells us humans produce their own natural “endo”- cannabinoids (endo/endogenous is Latin meaning internal or “within”). Anandamide, known as the “Bliss Gene”, a compound that makes you feel good, is an endo-cannabinoid we produce naturally… and shows up emotionally as “happy”.
Our culture provides ample opportunity to create stressful human situations on annual rotations so we need a plan to help de-stress from those occasions before it happens.
This year, let’s create new ways to enjoy our special celebratory traditions during Covid-19 precautions that will undoubtedly involve cameras, more technology, and WiFi with a little creativity. But this is what we’re good at as humans…. creating new ideas.
So we can do this. Get some magic markers and paper out and start making paper dolls to hang on a tree that look like your friends and family! Tape pictures to the chairs where your family should be sitting and make that turkey dinner! You’ve gotta freezer for later! Burn that phone line up all day calling everybody you know for a chat and don’t forget your exercises!!! But friends… before that day comes… and the next holiday after… and the next political stressor… run, don’t walk… to your phone book, google, or magic computer device to look for some CBD… Cannabidiol. Even if yer an old experienced puffer, this is key to keeping your sanity over the next few stressing events!
Plan plan plan those events in advance. Then before the stress builds up, begin daily dosing with CBD. CBD will help you the most, with anxiety. It’ll keep your tummy calm because you won’t be producing acids from anxiety. Your emotions really spank a lot of your physical issues. So helping them regulate calmly will feel so much better. Break
Here’s another thought… those nasty looping memories and discussions in yer head??? You can quell those with Thc!! You CAN!! I stop them all the time in the middle of the night if I wake up to pee and can’t get right back to sleep because of a looping thought… one inhale of Thc from my indica vape and I’m right back to sleep within seconds. But what I’m finding is that I don’t have to get up in the middle of the night since I’ve been using CBD at bedtime. I’m 66! I used to get up 3 times in the night! I didn’t realize my bladder was so spastic! But Cannabidiol calms spasms… so there ya have it.
If you need Thc for relief but yera little nervous about the high making you dizzy if you have to get up in the middle of the night… take equal amounts of CBD with it and it should quell the high. You may need to adjust that amount. For those who like the high, wait to add CBD just before you go to sleep.
If you can’t afford to go through the whole expensive red tape of getting a pot doctor, getting the state card, buying pricey dispensary products… then I’ve got an optional idea for you. Begin using a safe over-the-counter CBD product that you can buy online or in a reputable CBD shop.
What makes it safe? A 3rd Party Lab Test proves in writing that product in not contaminated.
That is what you have to see before you EVER buy any cannabis product!!!
The 3rd Party Lab Test that proves there is no contamination.
Who does that??? A reputable cannabis company!
By law, all Florida dispensaries have to do this with their product. But not CBD peddlers. Do NOT buy your CBD from the Dollar Store or Gas Stations!!!
A reputable CBD store will have 3rd party lab tests on all their products. If they do not… walk out. It’s crap. And expensive crap at that! We’re already strapped for money.
But using CBD will help you endure these upcoming stressors so much better!!! And if you can afford it… buy some extra and send it to your loved ones.
If you have no idea who to turn to for good CBD… I want you to know I talk about a couple of brands I’ve used and love… but they have no idea I’m talkin about them. I get no advertising money from them or anybody at this point… this is just me telling you what I use and think as a cannabis shaman and why. Charlotte’s Web is authentic, pure, reliable, and their heart is in it for the human, not the bottom dollar. Find it in reputable CBD stores and online. American Shaman is a CBD franchise I love. They test their products and are innovative, creative, cautious, and very patient oriented. They have 3 brick and mortar shops in the Melbourne area and are growing very quickly across the nation. Break
Still using street weed? I’m telling you again, no matter where you think it came from, or who you think you trust who grew it, without a 3rd party lab test to prove it has no contamination, you must consider that it is… And if you’re using lots of it, and you already have health issues, here’s how to mitigate the problem somewhat…
Buy some clean otc CBD and use it between your marijuana use. It’s medicine that will help you feel better. Take your marijuana in tiny micro-doses, then use more CBD throughout the day. By supplementing your pain meds in marijuana, you’ll spend less money and ingest less contamination…. helping you feel better longer for less money.
Did you know they make CBD Suckers??? And CBD Joints? And CBD Handlotion!! And CBD Drink Mixes! CBD COFFEEEEEE!!!! And CBD Hot Chocolate!
Consider changing your holiday habits this year with something that can help you and your family emotionally… Picture a calm weirdly wonderful meal of peace with lots of technology and creativity to make it the most special year of holidays we’ll ever remember. Be kind to yourselves. Buy some CBD and pass it around… individually wrapped, of course.

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.
