    #013: The Role of Cannabinoids in Management of Osteoarthritis

Stay tuned for the next episodes which will cover gout and rheumatoid arthritis and how to manage the pain for those diseases.

    #003: How Cannabinoids Supplement Your Body’s Natural System

    CBD products are everywhere today: the grocery store, the gas station, even in the pet store! But they are like other over the counter supplements that are not FDA approved. They should be used carefully and at the advice of a trained professional. Today’s show is for you if you’re looking for evidence-based information about cannabinoid products and the role it plays with the endocannabinoid system. The endocannabinoid system (ECS) is our bodies’ supercomputer system. It’s found in all humans and in some lower animals. Inside our bodies, we have receptors, called the CB1 and CB2. The CB1 receptor is found mostly in the brain and central nervous system, while…

    #002: Can Cannabis Compounds Help In Healing?

    There are many different names used around cannabis, including weed, hemp, marijuana, CBD, and THC. Some of these names are used interchangeably, without a true understanding of how these biologics really are different. In this podcast, I discuss the medical applications of specific compounds derived from cannabis. And as always, the purpose of this show is educational, and should not be taken as medical advice. Marijuana and hemp are regulated differently because they are recognized by the government as having different properties. Marijuana’s THC level is 5% and above, while recreational marijuana’s THC is 5%. Hemp-derived cannabis, on the other hand, has just 0.3% THC levels. Hemp can be transported…

    #006: Mental Health and Cannabis Part 2

    The pharmacological means of managing mental health can sometimes be unbearable, especially when the side effects seem worse than the sickness that’s being treated. Patients tend to be non-compliant with their medication because they don’t like their drugs’ side effects. And if a patient isn’t taking their medication, then how can they get better? We need to find alternative medicines with less side effects. In previous episodes, I have discussed both the body’s naturally produced cannabinoids found in the endocannabinoid system (episode 3) and the mental health disorders that are frequently grouped under the same umbrella because they have similar signs and symptoms (episode 5). Due to limited clinical studies,…

    #005: Mental Health And Cannabis: Part 1

    It is really important for us to start addressing the issue of mental health because I think that is as important as physical health. There is a big stigma around mental health, but with 2-7% of people suffering from major depression dying of suicide, we cannot afford to ignore this problem. Today in part one of my podcast on mental health, I’m going to talk about the types of mental health issues and their common symptoms. In part two, I will cover if and where cannabis could be used to treat mental health issues. One of the reasons we are talking about all of these mental health disorders is that…

    #007: Is Cannabis My Ticket To Full Night Sleep?

    Many people experience insomnia or some kind of sleep disorder at some point in their life. This can be incredibly frustrating because a poor night’s sleep can negatively impact one’s health. In this episode, I discuss the many different kinds of sleep disorders, how they’re currently treated, and how cannabis might be used to treat them. Many doctors start the management of sleep disorders by advising patients to exercise, lose weight, avoid stimulants, maintain a regular sleep schedule, avoid eating in bed, or stop watching TV in bed. Treating the disorders with non-pharmacological means is a sensible approach that educates the patient about healthy sleep habits. The next step in…

    #008: Role of Cannabinoids in Sexual Dysfunction

    There can be a lot of shame around sexual dysfunction. For men, they don’t want to admit they have it because they want to be seen as very manly. For women, they sometimes pretend that they enjoy it when they don’t. Sexual dysfunction happens for a lot of reasons, so the way it’s treated needs to recognize that. For women, hormonal changes can cause sexual dysfunction. I discuss the different hormone therapies, some of their risks, and some natural remedies for sexual dysfunction, including: Using lubricant Spicing up the bedroom with toys or Increased communication with one’s partner I describe what sexual dysfunction looks like in men, why it occurs…
