    Getting Medicinal With Dr. John Teh from PlantMed Cannabis Clinic

    Getting Medicinal With Dr. John Teh from PlantMed Cannabis Clinic

    For this episode of the podcast, we had the pleasure of discussing one-on-one with PlantMed Cannabis Doctor, Dr. John Teh!

    We were both very excited to ask Dr. Teh about all different kinds of stuff - so excited that we didn't check our camera, and it quits out after 50 minutes. We press on, throwing a mountain of questions surrounding Medical Cannabis at Doctor John. 

    By the end of the podcast, we both gained a clearer understanding of how the system in Australia works! If you're interested in learning more about the medicinal cannabis scheme and the opportunities it presents to Australians, listen on - or check out PlantMed's site!

    Shelly from Her Highness Goes Medical!

    Shelly from Her Highness Goes Medical!

    We brought "Her Highness" onto the podcast earlier on our first season... and now, Shelly is back - alone this time, and with a vengeance!  

    Shelly is the head of 'Her Highness' - a female owned and operated cannabis group/online space. She started the 'Her Highness' group on her own, and has been managing this group since 2017 - pouring her heart and soul into the community she created.  

    The 'Her Highness' group includes approximately 7000 adult Australian women; with the purpose of the group being to support, uplift and motivate all women with a love for cannabis.  

    Her Highness is a kind of 'internet family'. It sure as hell isn't just a place to smoke weed... though, that does happen from time to time! The girls are selfless, always putting each other first - the whole community is devoted to promoting solidarity amongst women in the Australian cannabis community.  Whether Her Highness girls are just hanging out, providing non-judgemental emotional support, or helping each other to find places to live - they always go above and beyond.  

    After picking Shelly's brain on the 2020 state election, we engaged in a protracted yarn which concerned the political climate of Australia; identifying some of the challenges that our 'cannabis legalisation' movement is currently facing, in our quest to legalise this wonderful plant.  

    We also talked to Shelly about her finally getting onto the medical scheme!

    Driving Change With Honahlee

    Driving Change With Honahlee

    Tom from HONAHLEE on the Friendly Aussie Podcast!

    'Honahlee' is a safe online space dedicated to learning, exploring and elevating cannabis-related conversations across Australia. We were honoured to catch up with Tom, who helped us to understand where his online cannabis publication emerged from, what it's all about, and where it's headed next. 

    Mitch and Josip chat with Tom about his background in startups and product development, eventually transitioning into what initially brought him into the cannabis space. We talk about Tom's 'Drive Change' campaign, which spearheads calls for fair roadside drug testing. We let loose on the dreams and plans for big projects we all have in the future, sharing our aspirations. 

    We speculate on the future of technological advancement, communications and social media platforms such as facebook. We even briefly take forays into cultural and political differences between the US and Australia - with Tom having an American background. 

    Finally, Tom introduces us to 'Druid' - an amazing phone app that can detect your impairment before you hit the road. This thing can show you how stoned you really are. We recommend you check it out for yourselves!

    Build-A-Beug With Stoke Industries

    Build-A-Beug With Stoke Industries

    On this episode of the Friendly Aussie Podcast, get STOKED for our 110-minute long-form conversation with Simon - the Founder of Stoke Industries.
    Get ready - perhaps it's wise to go to the bathroom, make yourself something to eat, do some stretches... then sit or lie down, and get comfortable. You'll need to respect all of your pre-podcast preparation rituals  - because this time, we're abandoning any care whatsoever that we usually have, with episode lengths. We've gone ALL OUT. Again, get ready.

    Stoke Industries is an up-and-coming Australian manufacturing company. They work with sustainable materials such as recycled Aluminium, and employ the finest machinery to produce items that will last you a lifetime. As the inventor of an uncompromisingly bold and original product - dubbed the 'Stoke Inhaler' - Simon gave us an opportunity to peer behind-the-scenes of the development of his space-age beug, on this podcast.

    Michael Pettersson MLA - The Politician Who Wrote the ACT Cannabis Legalisation Bill

    Michael Pettersson MLA - The Politician Who Wrote the ACT Cannabis Legalisation Bill

    We chat over zoom with ACT MLA Michael Pettersson, asking him the questions we've been quietly wondering about since the ACT passed legal cannabis back in 2019.

    As a Labor backbencher, Michael has put his career on the line to champion progressive drug law reforms - he was the one to spotlight the issue (against party platform) and presented a proposal to the public. 

    The response was largely positive, which created new opportunities for Michael's colleagues to appreciate the bill and what it could mean for the territory. 

    Now, with cannabis legal to grow in the ACT, Pettersson and other Labor members are tabling additional legislation to decriminalise illicit substances (such as heroin, MDMA and methamphetamine).
