    Hempfest the 4th Potpourri (E36 rebroadcast)

    We are looking back on the Summer of 2019.  One of Kirk and Trevor's highlites was going to HempFest in Saskatoon.  We talked to Jodi McDonald of Keystone Labs.  Jodi's company will sell you a "Key Box" to allow you to get lab quality analysis of your home grown cannabis.  And Jodi is infectiously  animated when she explain HPLC and mass spec.  Robert Belanger is a potter whose ceramic pipes are stronger than glass.  Robert gets the unusual complaint that his smoking accessories are too beautiful to use.  Lane Britnell goes deep on growing media.  Lane explains why "Dirt is dead.  Soil is alive."

    E51 - Songs In The Key Of Weed with John Einarson

    E51 - Songs In The Key Of Weed with John Einarson

    The fact marijuana heightens the musical experience is no secret. We know both listeners and players have enhanced their musical experiences through the use of this plant for over 100 years. This episode links cannabis to music through the stories told by acclaimed musicologist John Einarson. We follow a path of early jazz players influencing Canadian singer-song-writer Ian Tyson, who in turn influenced Bob Dylan, who in turn influenced The Beatles, to produce their iconic cannabis inspired album Rubber Soul. Einarson, author of 14 biographies of various musicians, tells stories with weed-inspired songs weaving through his deep narrative, as we learn how musicians created some of our most iconic songs under the influence of cannabis. Some very important pot smoking entertainers are discussed, such as Barbara Streisand sharing reefer with Peter Sellers and Neil Young testifying for his brother during a marijuana trial. Although cannabis is a very popular mind-altering substance used by musicians, Einarson believes it may actually pale compared to other psychedelic substances used in the industry. But that is another story for another episode. For now, this is a highly-entertaining episode produced, unlike any other from the ReeferMEDness team

I love learning about Cannabis

I have been listening to the podcasts on my walks, which is supposedly to help my arthritic knee. I am exploring alternative measures as the orthopaedic surgeon said my condition is not bad enough, as I am wakened each night in excruciating pain. Yesterday I listened to the last two while I was taping and washing walls. I am really enjoying them because I am learning. The pharmacist and nurse practitioner compliment each other. I have been looking at getting some CBD oil but honestly have not found evidence to say which is the best to use on my knee and IT band. Look forward to the next one.

Best for straight up information

I love this show! These guys are the best out there for providing content free of the general malarkey you find in other shows. This is straight up information, they don’t sugarcoat anything. And they always look for alternate points of views and experiences. The best ingredients for an awesome conversation.

ReeferMEDness

I confess! I am a podcast junkie. I’ve just started listening to ReeferMEDness and am enjoying it immensely! This is the first time I’ve ever rated and written a review for a podcast. I highly recommend ReeferMEDness! Give it a try.
