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,
Every month I attend scheduled webinars that are interactive teaching conferences with notable scientists and doctors and professionals in my industry, so that I can stay current on my cannabis certifications. I am so fortunate to have the genius of Dustin Sulak as my teacher and cannot speak highly enough of this gentle human. He is a renowned international cannabis expert, educator, and clinician based in Maine and has helped well over 18k patients.
Dr. Sulak’s next webinar is Wed. Feb. 24, 2021 at 7pm. He will host another well-known guest in the industry… this time in the field of animal health.
You may know that I have a pack of 5 dogs and 2 fat cats… I can’t wait for this webinar and because of Cove-19, Dr. Sulak opened these seminars to the public! For FREE! They’re usually closed meetings for members. Register right away because it’s first come first serve. And that’s before he opened it up to the public! So if cannabis and animals are something that interest you, this is the real deal. There will be several hundred medical people in the audience listening with us. I know a bunch of them from Florida and am humbled to be in the same space with them.
I try to remember to say it often… I’m not a doctor… I am a certified cannabis Healer by Dr. Dustin Sulak, who has an incredible course you can find out more about at healer.com. That’s where you’ll find info to register for the upcoming webinar with host Dr. Sulak and his guest, Certified Veterinary Pain Practitioner, Stephen Cital, the Executive Director for the Academy of Laboratory Surgical Research.
Let me just read what the email promo article says about Stephen Cital:
“About Stephen Cital RVT, SRA, RLAT, VCC, CVPP, VTS-LAM (Res.Anesthesia)
Stephen originally started college to become a registered human nurse but did not enjoy working with humans as patients. Instead, Stephen became an RVT and then obtained certification as a Surgical Research Anesthetist through the Academy of Surgical Research, followed by a Registered Laboratory Animal Technician designation through the American Association of Laboratory Animal Science soon after. Most recently, he became one of the first Veterinary Cannabis Counselors in the country while continuing to educate veterinary professionals on the safe and effective use of cannabis in the clinical setting.
He is one of a handful of Certified Veterinary Pain Practitioners in the country through the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management. Stephen is the Executive Director for the Academy of Laboratory Animal Veterinary Technicians and Nurses, holding a Veterinary Technician Specialist certification in Laboratory Animal Medicine (LAM) with an anesthesia focus. He is currently employed by Howard Hughes Medical Institute at Stanford University in the Department of Neurobiology. Stephen is an award-winning international lecturer on anesthesia, pain management, cannabis, and best practices in research. He enjoys teaching and serves on advisory boards, is a key opinion leader for multiple pharmaceutical/device companies and co-founder for the Veterinary Cannabis Academy. He was also a column coordinator for one of Nature’s journals and has contributed to numerous textbooks, including the primary editor for a new textbook “Cannabis Therapy in Veterinary Medicine”.
Needless to say, the educational caliber of these two doctors elevate the subject from illegitimate to amazing. But wait! There’s MORE! Not only will we have an opportunity to ask live questions on zoom, but Dr. Sulak will also widen the subject and discuss not only cannabis and pets, but absorption of oral and topical cannabinoids in dogs, more data on cannabis for autism spectrum disorder, and effects of cannabis use on elevated blood pressure in humans plus CBC and related cannabinoids in a mouse seizure model. I LOVE THIS STUFF!
This is why I get up early and go to bed late. There is so much to learn and I’m already 67! Time is scootin by!
Anyway, I thought you’d like to know about Dr. Sulak’s upcoming webinars that are free for the time being… Register at healer.com ….and I thought you’d like some insight into my cannabis education. Oh I have many more certifications that you can find on my website bio, but Dr. Sulak’s certificate is the one I treasure. His curriculum is so impressive… he didn’t duplicate any information I got from different institutions and other courses. But then he’s a little different than most because he’s a researcher and clinician dividing his time between lab and patients and growing and figuring it all out. He’s actually come upon an acidic recipe for a CBDa full-spectrum product more potent than a decarbed product, especially when added to THC or THCa. Anyway. I found Dr. Sulak’s science so wonderful and you will too.
Did you hear me use that term again? Full Spectrum? And there’s Broad Spectrum. And there are Isolates. Full Spectrum has all the original compounds in that product… over 400 of them. Broad Spectrum has some chosen few compounds and an Isolate is just one cannabis compound. You need to know these terms so you can judge the value of the product for your needs. One cannabis isolate will help you but not as much as a broad spectrum with more compounds and not as much as a full-spectrum with all the compounds working synergistically to help you feel better. People may need an isolate for various reasons… can’t tolerate THC so they get a one-compound product without THC. Want some THC but too much feels weird… broad spectrum can help that. Want all the power of the whole plant? Use the whole leaf.
The language of cannabis is as old as the spoken word. We have a lot to learn and using cannabis effectively is similar to a chess dance. Lots of strategy in all those fancy moves.
I’m so tickled to spend a little time with you. I love our little chats and hope that you’re learning some helpful information that will lift your quality of life.
Do you remember those 3 spectrum terms I mentioned earlier?
Full Spectrum. With all the original plant compounds
Broad Spectrum. With a bunch of compounds but not all
Isolate. Just one single compound… like CBD
OK you got it.
Hope to see you at Dr. Sulak’s webinar… to register, go to healer.com
