Cannabis's Future is Bright!
We are on the precipice of change in the United States. Over a dozen cannabis-related bills are in congress and public opinion is widely in favor of legalizing cannabis. So in this final episode, we’d like to talk to you about the future of cannabis and more specifically, the future of cannabis research, products, and medicine.

A family physician specializing in cannabinoids. 5 yrs ago her son was seizing 3-4x/hr. He had failed all options and she was asked if she wanted him resuscitated. At that point as a last resort, Dr. Jen tried CBD. Since then her son has been thriving. Previously, he had been in hospital 90% of the time with chronic lung disease from aspirations and now their family has celebrated 3 yrs with no hospital visits for seizures. For the past 4 yrs, Dr. Jen has been working with patients who have failed all options and is giving them the chance to explore cannabinoids. The results with her patients have been amazing. She now advocates, educates, and advises on cannabinoids to patients, colleagues, and the industry. She enjoys working with LPs advising to help develop products we need for kids.

We made it Nathan, our final episode.
Oh my gosh, we started this season by looking at the origins of cannabis in the United States. We discovered the source of our prejudice towards cannabis and discussed whether or not it’s warranted.
Then we learned about the endocannabinoid system and how to affect it, both with and without cannabis. We acknowledge that cannabis is not a panacea and can cause harm, especially in certain populations like teenagers, pregnant women, in patients with personality disorders. Finally, we explored the pharmaceutical and botanical cannabis products on the market and gave some general advice on how to use them.
Whew, Kara, the topic of cannabis is so vast and how little did we know how vast it was until we got started? But we really covered a lot this season and if you’re new to our show, we write and we produce these seasons as mini audio courses, and so each episode builds upon the last and they all lead us here to this, our final episode.
