2.1 Conversations that Change the Stigma (ft. Shango Los)
4037

We've all had difficult conversations about cannabis. Whether it's a friend, family member, or a healthcare provider, it can be demoralizing to feel invalidated and frustrating if you're struggling to find the right words. Many people still have a negative bias about the plant, which isn’t their fault as there’s been a lot of propaganda advocating against it over the years. On this episode of Smoke N' Science, we talk to Shango Los, host of Shaping Fire and expert at cannabis communication. Together, we’re going to share some difficulties we’ve had and some tricks we use to break it all down and hopefully help change people's minds!

1.4 Categorizing Cannabis
3208

In this week’s episode of Smoke N’ Science we’re going to dive into some language used to describe different cannabis varieties. There are hundreds of different Cannabis varieties that exist, and new ones are being created every day. The different types can cause very different effects on our body because they contain different molecules! The most common term to describe these types is ‘strain’ but the Cannabis industry is evolving to include newer more accurate terms, mainly chemovar and cultivar. Let’s discuss the different language we use to describe Cannabis and where we see Cannabis classification going in the future!

1.2 Cannabis & Pain pt. 1
3530

On  episode 2 of Smoke N' Science we talk about pain. Pain is the number one  use for medicinal Cannabis in the United States, and this is no  accident. Cannabis can change the way pain signals are sent in our  brains and provide some much-needed relief, especially for chronic pain  sufferers! In today's episode we begin to talk about pain, what it is,  the different kinds of pain, and what's happening in our brain when we  experience pain. Join us on this journey into our endocannabinoid system  to learn more- we promise it won't be painful to listen to!


Up next: in part 2 we'll dive into individual disorders where pain plays a crucial role and the different methods of administration that can be helpful for pain!

1.1 Scientist Smoke Session
3447

Riley and Miyabe peek under the covers of cannabis research and discuss some of the barriers to science that have contributed to the stigma. Miyabe summarizes the system in our bodies that is responsible for the effects and the medicinal benefits of Cannabis, and Riley explains why natural products that contain complex formulations have unique benefits in comparison to the traditional pharmaceutical route of a single isolated molecule. Take an inside view of Riley and Miyabe’s team chemistry and how they hope to change the status quo! Up next: the science behind cannabis and all types of pain, and how the endocannabinoid system is a key regulator by multiple mechanisms.
