    071 Greg Gerdeman 2nd Interview - Accepting evolution

    071 Greg Gerdeman 2nd Interview - Accepting evolution

    Dr. Greg Gerdeman, Ph.D., is a pioneer in researching the endocannabinoid system's physiology. In this episode, he walks us through the complex topic of cannabis and cancer, current dosing, and new research that may better inform patients and the medical community.

    Greg researched the ECS for over 20 years and talks about our biological co-evolution with plants and how we can learn to change our health's narrative with this knowledge. He clears up over-simplifications of the ECS, which he sees as a conductor of a 'symphony of biological interaction.' Common misinformation is spread unwittingly through popular demand for sound-byte explanations.

    As a Ph.D. student, he discovered that endocannabinoids act as "retrograde messengers" to regulate synaptic plasticity in the brain. These findings have become foundational to a modern understanding of the ECS and the neuroprotective actions of cannabinoids. He later co-directed research on exercise-mediated endocannabinoid signaling, revealing new insights into the "runner's high" and its evolutionary roles in exercise's neurological benefits.

    As a college professor, his lab focused on the ancient evolutionary origins of cannabinoid receptors. Upon co-founding a medical cannabis company in Florida, he directed scientific activities at every level of the supply chain, ranging from integrative pest management to product development to physician education. He is a Voluntary Assistant Professor at the USF College of Pharmacy. In addition, "Dr. G "is Chief Scientist of TN Farmaceuticals and is co-founder of Weir Wellness, a newly licensed medical cannabis dispensary in Weirton, West Virginia.

    Instagram quotes:
    "The endocannabinoid system has liberated cannabis from the drug abuse paradigm into the wellness paradigm. "

    070 Amy Bourlan-Hilterbran - Fighting for Austin

    070 Amy Bourlan-Hilterbran - Fighting for Austin

    Amy Dawn Bourlon-Hilterbran is a Certified Nutritionist, Holistic Naturopath, and a licensed CNA with extensive experience assisting and advocating for medical marijuana patients. More than anything else, she is the parent of a child with a severe form of epilepsy in a pivotal time in history, when cannabis is gaining acceptance as a viable plant medicine.

    Amy's cannabis journey began when she, like so many other parents, resorted to cannabis to save her child's life. She, a lifelong Democrat, and her husband, Jason, a lifelong Republican, relocated to Colorado to save their teenage son, Austin, who suffers from Dravet Syndrome, the catastrophic form of epilepsy. "He would literally have dozens to hundreds of seizures daily regardless of the prescribed medicines," Amy says, "each day, we thought, would this be the day we would lose our son?"

    When traditional pharmaceuticals began shutting down his organs, the family moved from their beloved hometown in Oklahoma after efforts to change laws failed in 2014 gave cannabis a chance to save his life. Austin is now living free of the pills destroying his organs, no longer has damage to his kidneys or liver, and lives with cannabis medicine and often, months with no seizures at all.

    Their tireless efforts of documenting their own journey on social media and hosting bi-partisan political events to save their son Austin's life were successful. Laws regarding cannabis in Oklahoma have changed, now having some of the most progressive medical marijuana laws in the US. She and Jason founded the nonprofit American Medical Refugees Foundation, which has helped thousands of patients worldwide.

    "Small town girl, devoted mother, adoring wife - doing all I can, when I can to end cannabis prohibition."
