    Fighting Covid with Cannabis • Dr. Igor Kovalchuck

    Fighting Covid with Cannabis • Dr. Igor Kovalchuck

    Dr. Igor Kovalchuck is a cannabis researcher from Canada whose team is developing sativa extracts that block the ACE2 receptor that covid-19 uses as an entryway into the cell. They use artificial human 3D models of oral, airway, and intestinal tissues to identify extracts that modulate ACE2 gene expression and ACE2 protein levels.

    We’ll discuss using cannabis to fight covid-19, as well as other diseases like cancer that
    marijuana has shown promising results in fighting. The stigma around weed, a frequent topic in
    these parts, has blocked and slowed down this research and Dr. Kovalchuck will share his first
    hand experience dealing with the bizarre logic of weed laws in Canada and the US.

    In a wonderfully unexpected digression we will also delve into Chernobyl and Igor’s time there as a researcher studying plant life in the aftermath of the nuclear meltdown. We’ll also get the inside scoop on the supplements Igor’s team is currently testing and when they might be available to American and Canadian consumers.

    Poop Doping • Scott Pemberton

    Poop Doping • Scott Pemberton

    Why is it when I eat halal food with white sauce and hot sauce from a street cart in Manhattan, within a half hour my stomach starts bubbling?

    There is still so much we don’t know about our bodies, and perhaps nowhere is that more true than in our guts, where literally millions of species of bacteria live out their entire lives and procreate endlessly.
