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.
Hello my friends,
I just got my first vaccine for Covid-19 at Walmart up in Vera at noon. It was a lark.
I went online to walmart.com and found a location close to me that was giving appointments and got in. But I couldn’t get my 88 yr old spouse in or his 98 year old brother when I got into the system that day about a week ago.
At 8:15 this morning, WESH2 News said the Viera VA was doing a drive-thru vaccine program from NOW-3:00 today. I dragged Lewi outta bed and up we rushed to get his brother only to find the gates of the VA closed before 9:00. Don’t know if they were open for a minute… gave out all the vaccines, or never had any… no explanation… no vaccine. So fear and frustration is still with us.
Looking back a couple months on that historical day in December of 2020 when the first boxes of vaccines were rolled out in huge coordination across the U.S. in the dark hours of the early morning. Four cameras watched from inside and outside… one particular plant, fixated on the personnel loading the boxes of medicine while waiting outside to see the first trucks move out.
“Breaking News!” All meant to PROVE to the public, on this day in this era of misinformation, that the vaccine is actually here and on its way to us. It is being delivered to all 50 states. A massive cooperation based on planning, scheduling, and performing the job with actual skills and ability, tracked and accounted for, all the while being monitored from start to finish and then on into the arms of patients. Are you aware that we have the ability to stamp a molecule? So tracking is just a logistical issue that can be monitored and managed like FedEx.
Science is curiosity, data, and the facts therein. We’ve already come up with a system to organize and operate this confusing world of data and issues. We have already created many languages to understand each other… and how to prove a fact from a falsehood.
Yet, all the cameras watching those distribution trucks to PROVE to the populace that the vaccines are real and moving towards waiting patients. It does give me a fresh sense of hope to see it. Like I might actually survive this thing.
But there are so many who can’t get past the conspiracy issues they believe. Can’t believe science, can’t believe news, can’t believe facts, can’t believe the other party, everybody is just out for themselves. The pinnacle of cynicism. And then those with some source of power or control who garner a current of lies, who spread doubt like disease, who think no humans are good or worth helping,d are waiting to usurp this moment in their own twisted minds. I fear that bunch as much as I do the virus. Small minds who seem to perceive the philosophy of the Democrats as a threat, mostly to their guns and safe-keeping of the major corporate tax evaders and the old white gendarme. That attitude is so corrupt of the democratic philosophy of freedom and justice for all. If this has all just been about white supremacy and control, then that’s GOT to be over! That is NOT democracy. That is NOT what THIS country aspires to be.
Look, we have to abide by the Rules of the Road or we get reprimanded in some way to tow the line… like everybody else. You get in a vehicle and act like a fool and hurt someone, you’ll go to jail. What’s the difference in mandating masks to protect the public? The public abides by Rules of the Road… Somehow there has been a disconnect to believe facts, scientific resources, and live video that is right in front of our eyes that would stop the spread of this disease and choose to act like lemmings instead. People are sheeple… I say it all the time. We can so easily be lead down a path of good or bad.
I think our challenge is multi-tiered.
- To re-educate our society to understand the difference between a fact and an opinion and further, an assumption that leads to misinformation.
- To remind our society of their obligation to help their neighbor survive this planet.
- To inspire our society to perform RAK’s (Random Acts of Kindness) every day.
- To set societal goals to improve our quality of life as technology changes.
The history of cannabis is as long as this planet is old. It is rich with potential for humans and animals because of the diversity of its chemical makeup. Even slugs at the bottom of the ocean which have never seen the light of day, or the edge of a coast, have something in common with you regarding cannabis… you both have an Endo-Cannabinoid System of receptors that cannabis binds perfectly with.
I am fascinated with the story of cannabis and this is only beginning!
But because of the intentional mis-information of cannabis for the past 100 years, our society understandably does not trust this plant. Or an industry that just popped up overnight to begin selling their “snake oil” that the FDA can’t even approve yet because it’s still a Schedule 1. And don’t forget… the history of science in America is also tainted with experimentation on people of color. Hello Tuskegee Airmen. There are a lot of historical reasons for people not to trust a new medical discovery after years of problems with prescription drugs. And then all the advertising that pumps partial inspiration for help along with debilitating possibilities if you take their product, which they are legally inclined to tell you about. But those isolated synthetic compounds don’t have thousands of years of written history in pharmacopeias around the world of its efficacy… like cannabis.
But that’s where I hope to help. I’m here to tell you what I’ve discovered from researching old and new data that proves what this plant can do to relieve issues that plague humans and animals alike. Do your own homework on this plant and you’ll find a wealth of factual information written by contemporary scientists who have been researching cannabis since the 60’s and before.
With a new attitude in the White House, cannabis will be removed from its Schedule 1 prison and will be available to the public once again.
Just a reminder to my audience that, I’m not a doctor… that is NOT my area of expertise. I go to my primary care physician to understand what my issues are and my doctor’s idea for help. But I’ve learned that medical marijuana and hemp can alleviate a lot of those issues without negative side effects, which is not something primary care physicians as a whole understand, just yet.
But I DO want my doctor to support my decision, watch the resulting data, monitor my progress, and consider choosing cannabis as a first option for my issues instead of a last resort. The difference in my quality of life after going from 20 years of a handful of prescription pills and the aches and pains and brain fog and weight gain and depression that comes with it… cannabis felt like a god-send.
I know a lot of elders who are so afraid to try cannabis, don’t know how to use it properly after they get it home, and then give up after a few days of inaccurate dosing of tinctures… they don’t understand the “hunt and peck” of it all and weren’t taught how to find their personal dosage. They give up after a few days then go back to their pills. All I can do is shake my head. Those poor patients have Western Medicine ingrained in their psyches and have a real hard time being their own guinea pig after reading the prescription bottle directions so generic to society for 50 years.
Using cannabis is much more than taking a pill… although, you can take it in pill form now. But there are nuances that must be determined and there are so many choices… like a buffet! All of the choices are therapeutic but some will work better than others for YOU and you’ll find a preference for how you ingest cannabis, which makes a difference in how quickly the medicine is effective. There’s just a lot of new and interesting ways to consume this plant and it’s fun to have a choice! Further, it’s a relief to know that I can medicate as many times as I want without fear of harm. Never a death from cannabis in the history of the planet.
If you didn’t already know, I’m about to publish my first eBook called The Language of Cannabis, with the most valuable ideas to help a patient understand how to use hemp or marijuana for relief… It’s been through the hands of scientists and is with a book editor right now. They’re keeping me accurate and grammatically correct! I can’t wait to present it and will keep you posted as soon as it’s available. It will help you understand all the most pertinent cannabis information for using cannabis to improve your quality of life, all in one little place for reference. I don’t want to produce it on paper until it can come out on hemp.
It’s always a pleasure to help you understand the language of cannabis and how it can uplift your quality of life. If you’d like to have a discussion about cannabis with your own personal primary care physician but don’t know how… I wrote a letter for you to send that will open the conversation gently and hopefully inspire your doctor to monitor your discovery. There’s also a letter to your grocer asking to start supplying hemp paper products in order to save our trees and ozone. They’re both waiting for you for free to download from my website at cannabaverum.com.
