    Marijuana For Older Adults with Patricia Patton

    Marijuana For Older Adults with Patricia Patton

    Most people born from 1945-1965 grew up believing that marijuana was the Devil’s Lettuce. The so-called Baby Boomer generation has since seen decades of major changes around cannabis culture, law, and science. Now, they're the fastest growing demographic of new legal marijuana consumers. So how can the older generations learn about including cannabis in their lives? And how can the cannabis industry better connect with them?

    Our guest this episode is Ms. Patricia Patton, also known as "The Canna Boomer." She's a community connector, a wellness and aging expert, and an author. Right now, her passion is working to bridge the gap between the Baby Boomer generation and today’s legal cannabis industry. Find Patricia's podcast "Me and Mary Jane" on Google Podcasts or iTunes.

    Get to Know Your Bud with Reginald Stanfield II

    Get to Know Your Bud with Reginald Stanfield II

    There are so many decisions to make when purchasing weed at a dispensary, or buying seeds to grow at home. Is it a strain you're familiar with? Does it look gorgeous or scrappy? Smell like diesel or grape-flavored candy? Is it an indica, sativa, or a hybrid? What percentage is THC? CBD? CBG??? As you'll hear from our guest, grower Reginald Stanfield II, factors consumers may not even think of, like time of harvest or lighting can change the user experience.

    It can all seem overwhelming, but never fear, our guest is here to break down the science and dispel popular myths, like why higher THC doesn't necessarily equal better bud. Reggie is CEO and head horticulturalist at JustinCredible Cultivation in Cummington, Mass.

Brit asks audience questions about the difference between inhaling, edibles, and cannabis tincture, how to dose marijuana without getting too high, how THC and CBD could interact with prescription medications, and what we know about THC-8.

The best!!

I love this podcast. Not only does Brits fabulous accent make her fun to listen to but it’s so informative and easy to understand and follow.

Educational in a way you’ll love

Brit makes it easy for me, someone who doesn’t really understand the ins and outs of cannabis, to really comprehend everything about not just the plant, but its societal, health, and economic connections, too! Brit is a joy to listen to and you should definitely put this podcast into your subscription rotation. Well worth it.

The Definitive Podcast on Marijuana

A Different Leaf is the best podcast about marijuana-related news. From medicinal breakthroughs to social justice, you can bet you'll hear about it first on this podcast.

Whether the topic is complicated or simple, Brit always keeps the tone fun and light-hearted. Even when her guests are Harvard professors, her interview style makes me feel as if I'm with friends in my living room.

Lastly, Brit's genuine enthusiasm is contagious. She's clearly committed to legalizing and legitimizing marijuana and it shows. If I can recommend one marijuana podcast and passionate host, it's A Different Leaf with Brit.
