Navigating Our Terrain

Aug 6, 2020

The cannabis plant is one of the most holistic, natural healers in the world. It’s been revered for centuries before modern pharma criminalized the use and production of it. Tammi Sweet joins me to talk about how the cannabis plant can positively impact almost every single person who uses it.

Cannabis is one of, if not the most, beneficial and healthful plants on our planet. There have even been links between cannabis and eradicating cancer cells. But Tammi doesn’t recommend using her, as she calls cannabis, without forming a relationship with her. 

Another piece of advice Tammi gives, especially relevant in our current government client on the legality and funding of the plant, it to share your cannabis seeds with other growers. This allows free distribution without regulation that will benefit the cannabis industry for years to come.

Tammi explains who can benefit from using cannabis. From chronic health conditions to anxiety and depression to people who want to form a bond with and boost their endocannabinoid system, cannabis is helpful for most of the population. However, Tammi warns that there are some people who should avoid using high THC cannabis and CBD.

In general, cannabis can greatly improve the lives of people who use it. Helping ease pain, improve overall mood, and even impact our digestive health are only some of the positive benefits of using cannabis for its healing properties. 

Tammi shares why she believes creating a tincture is the purest way to ingest cannabis. She prefers this method over smoking, vaping, or eating it. She also advises what questions we need to be asking our cannabis suppliers in order to understand the origin, purity, and strain of the plant we’re buying.

Have you thought about using cannabis as part of your healthcare routine? If you already use it, what benefits have you seen? I’d love if you shared your thoughts in the comments on the episode page.

“Medical professionals need to stop saying that there’s no evidence. There’s significant evidence that high THC cannabis will help people get off opioids and it is good for pain. There’s study after study after study that proves that.” (5:53)

“We’re in a moment where we can actually change the paradigm. Because corporate money cannot get invested right now because it’s not federally legal, the banks can’t get involved, we are at this place where we can all have equal footing. We can support people of color, we can support women. As a way of having equal footing in this huge industry.” (22:08)

“When you talk to people and they say it makes them paranoid, the first two questions I ask are, “What strain?” because it’s strain-dependent, and “what were you doing?” I think that if you open too much, in a situation where you weren’t prepared to open, I think that that would cause some negative feelings.” (50:46)
