Ep. 128 - Glenn Holland - Growing off The Grid
When Glenn Holland grew his medical cannabis he did so with his invention - Ganjagrid. The Ganjagrid is a plant vibrator that can be programmed with sound files from the grower. In Glenn's case he recorded his heartbeat, and had some interesting results when he used it to grow his own medical cannabis. This invention promises to have several interesting applications for growing both cannabis and other plants.

Ep. 127 - Glenn Holland - Cannabis for Lung Cancer
A couple years ago seemingly healthy Glenn Holland coughed up some blood tinged sputum that concerned him. After trips to a couple of doctors his diagnosis came back with that dreaded word - cancer. His doctor told him he had non-small cell adenocarcinoma that had spread to his lymph nodes and was at the fairly critical stage three A, so he didn't have much time to research or pursue nontraditional methods. Fortunately he was able to get in to a clinical trial for a new immunotherapy drug. Glenn credits that drug along with chemo & cannabis for helping him beat lung cancer.

Like so many other veterans Christian Ryan really struggled with PTSD & physical ailments after coming back from tours overseas.

He vowed he would find a way to get involved in the cannabis space so he could help others find healing in his miraculous plant. He now serves as the Customer Service Manager for Ilera Healthcare.

Ep. 124 - Sue Taylor - Cannabis for Seniors
Sue Taylor started out as an unlikely advocate for cannabis. The former Catholic school principal left her home in Georgia to have an emergency intervention with her son who wanted to sell medical cannabis. When she arrived instead of finding a desperate drug addict, she found a plant that possessed many healing capabilities. A plant that she had been lied to about her whole life. She began her advocacy career working for Harborside & doing outreach with seniors. She has been an eye witness to many healing stories, and she joins us today to discuss her journey from a prohibitionist to outspoken proponent of plant medicine & dispensary owner.

Ep 123 - Deirdra Martinez - Cannabis for Anxiety
Deirdra Martinez suffered with anxiety and chronic back pain for years. She had no idea the two could be connected until she was referred to a psychiatrist. After the mental health professional prescribed her Prozac her back pain disappeared, and life was good for a year or two. When the prescription meds started making her feel numb she succumbed to old habits and began overeating again. She confided in a co-worker about her struggles, and her co-worker recommended she try cannabis medicinally.

Throughout my life I’ve met genuinely good people who referred to cannabis as “their medicine”, claiming it helped heal or alleviate their symptoms. I always assumed they were right, because these were folks that had struggled for years before trying it. This podcast showcases such people, in a relaxed & conversational style. 5⭐️
Informative and entertaining. The host is a great broadcaster.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this podcast. As a nurse, I have really enjoyed hearing the first hand accounts of people who are using cannabis and seeing what a difference it can make in their lives. The guests have been entertaining and informative. I look forward to more shows in the future.
