    Kebra Smith-Bolden, RN - Dementia Patients Need Cannabis Most, But Can't Get It in Connecticut

    Kebra Smith-Bolden, RN - Dementia Patients Need Cannabis Most, But Can't Get It in Connecticut

    In this episode, we’re talking with Registered Nurse, Kebra Smith-Bolden, who created CannaHealth - the first and only Connecticut cannabis business owned by an African-American. Nurse Kebra began her career 22 years ago as a CNA specializing in home care. She’s now an exceedingly skillful RN who has always had a passion for community and held the highest standard of care for her patients. 
    Nurse Kebra leveraged her medical knowledge and decades of professional experience to create CannaHealth. Its innovative community-based business model offers disadvantaged communities, disproportionately impacted by the war on drugs, education about how cannabis is medicinal, as well as safe and legal access through medical marijuana program evaluations. 
    Referred to as the “Marijuana Guru in Connecticut”  Kebra has taken the state’s Cannabis Industry by force. She’s a member of numerous industry organizations including the Connecticut Coalition to Regulate Marijuana, Connecticut NORML, Women Grow and The Minority Cannabis Business Association, whose mission is to create equal access and economic empowerment for Cannabis Businesses, their patients, and the communities most affected by the war on drugs and in 2019 Kebra was named Connecticut Activist of the Year.
    Kebra Smith-Bolden is an expert. Her work as a hospice and psychiatric home care nurse, specializing in patients with mental health issues is how we learned about her. 
    Despite cannabis medicine being legal in more than 2/3rds of U.S. States, in order for people living with dementia to get some relief today, we need to get cannabis de-scheduled, and open up the Schedule I of Drugs for research. 
    Contact your Senators, Representatives and the President to let them know that you want to de-schedule cannabis and open up the Schedule I for research at the very least.

    Dr. Melanie Bone, M.D.: Benefits of Low-Dose THC for Dementia & Barriers to Medical Cannabis Research & Access for Seniors in Florida

    Dr. Melanie Bone, M.D.: Benefits of Low-Dose THC for Dementia & Barriers to Medical Cannabis Research & Access for Seniors in Florida

    We first learned about Dr. Melanie Bone’s work through an article that Abbie Rosner wrote in Forbes about MorseLife, a West Palm Beach, Florida senior health services organization doing incredible work breaking the stigma around cannabis medicine through education, research and clinical practice.

    Dr. Bone is a board certified Ob Gyn with 30 years of personal experience in women’s health care. She started a medical cannabis practice in 2016, treating women, men, and children. Dr. Bone has a unique background as a cancer survivor, a mother of five children, public speaker, and a women’s health care advocate.

    We talk with Dr. Bone about her work at MorseLIfe as well as her expertise in women’s health and the endocannabinoid system. Bottom line is we need more studies, more research, and the only way to unleash research is to change how cannabis is Federally scheduled.

    Despite cannabis medicine being legal in more than 2/3rds of U.S. States, in order for people living with dementia to get some relief today, we need to get cannabis de-scheduled, and open up the Schedule I of Drugs for research.

    Contact your Senators, Representatives and the President to let them know that you want to de-schedule cannabis and open up the Schedule I for research at the very least.

    Kicking CTE Dementia Using CBD - Featuring The Kick Master, Steven & Tracy Barbieri

    Kicking CTE Dementia Using CBD - Featuring The Kick Master, Steven & Tracy Barbieri

    In this episode, we’re connecting with Steven and Tracy Barbieri. Steven appears to be living and thriving with CTE dementia.

    We met Steven in Sacramento last year right after my mom passed, when we were lobbying the California Senate & Assembly with the Alzheimer’s Association asking our electeds to be bold and fund more research for dementia. Steven gave an inspiring speech explaining the benefits and urgency of an early diagnosis.  He was so engaging and entertaining in relating his journey. He spoke about the benefits of early diagnosis and a good diet and lots of exercise, he is “The Kick Master” after all… So after his speech, I asked him if he had ever tried cannabis medicine. He told me, “My wife won’t let me go a day without it!”

    Despite CBD being legal across the country and cannabis medicine being legal in more than 2/3rds of U.S. States, in order for people living with dementia to get some relief today, we need to get cannabis de-scheduled, and open up the Schedule I of Drugs for research. We also need to break the stigma of nearly a hundred years of propaganda.

    Contact your Senators, Representatives and the President to let them know that you want to de-schedule cannabis and open up the Schedule I for research at the very least.

    Using Cannabis for Dementia & Reducing Antipsychotics: Kelly Sturgeon, Owner Creekside Cottages & Creekside Place

    Dr. Jeffrey Hergenrather introduced me to Kelly Sturgeon, J.D. Kelly is the Creator and Administrator of Creekside Cottage and Creekside Place Assisted Living homes in Petaluma, California and she is also the President and manager of Community Caregivers of Sonoma.

    Despite cannabis medicine being legal in more than 2/3rds of U.S. States, in order for people living with dementia to get some relief today, we need to get cannabis de-scheduled, and open up the Schedule I of Drugs for research.

    Cannabis Helps Dementia Ep. 10 - Dr. Sherry Yafai, MD Cannabis Specialist, Founder RELEAF Institute

    Cannabis Helps Dementia Ep. 10 - Dr. Sherry Yafai, MD Cannabis Specialist, Founder RELEAF Institute

    Dr. Sherry Yafai is an Emergency Medicine Physician who has transitioned into Cannabis Based Medicine at the RELEAF Institute in Santa Monica, CA. Roughly 75% of her patients are over the age of 50 and prefer to use non-smokable Cannabis products.

    We met Dr. Yafai because she is the Co-Vice President of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians. I’m on the SCC Outreach Committee, and so is Dr. Yafai. We love that

    Dr. Yafai works to educate physicians, clinicians, and other health care providers on the most up to date clinical data and research in the field of Medical Cannabis.

    Did you know that dementia disproportionately impacts women, black, and latino people? 

    Did you know that cannabis was made illegal because of racist policy? 

    Lives are still being ruined because of prohibitionist propaganda even after cannabis started to become decriminalized, and are still to this day. Racial groups targeted by these draconian policies seem to have lots of cultural stigma remaining that prevents them from making use of plant medicine.

    Despite cannabis medicine being legal in more than 2/3rds of U.S. States, in order for people living with dementia to get some relief today, we need to get cannabis de-scheduled, and open up the Schedule I of Drugs for research. We must end the Drug War.

    Contact your Senators, Representatives and the President to let them know that you want to de-schedule cannabis and open up the Schedule I for research at the very least.

    Cannabis Helps Dementia - Ep. 9 Dr. Jordan Tishler, MD Harvard Cannabis Specialist

    Cannabis Helps Dementia - Ep. 9 Dr. Jordan Tishler, MD Harvard Cannabis Specialist

    One of the goals of this podcast is to connect people in relationship with dementia with health care professionals knowledgeable in how cannabis can help. 

     For some doctors, dementia hits closer to home than others.  

    Dr. Jordan Tishler is an Instructor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a cannabis therapeutics specialist with over 23 years of experience. He’s previously practiced for the Boston Veterans’ Administration for 15 years. Dr. Tishler is President/CEO of the Association of Cannabis Specialists, Advisor to Massachusetts Patient Advocacy Alliance, member of the International Cannabinoid Research Society, and widely sought after author/expert. His company InhaleMD, is a Boston-based patient focused clinical practice and Dr. Tishler sits on the boards of several medical Cannabis related businesses. He is available to consult via telemedicine, and practices in MA.  

    Dr. Tischler's’ family has also been impacted by dementia. Hear how and why he thinks cannabis helps dementia symptoms in EP9.  

    Despite cannabis medicine being legal in more than 2/3rds of U.S. States, in order for people living with dementia to get some relief today, we need to get cannabis de-scheduled, and open up the Schedule I of Drugs for research.  

    Contact your Senators, Representatives and the President to let them know that you want to de-schedule cannabis and open up the Schedule I for research at the very least.
