In life, most of us will never step onto a stage as large as a Miss Universe pageant.   Alyssa Boston is Miss Universe Canada & took to the stage wearing a cannabis inspired dress, not because she consumes cannabis but because she believes in legalization.  Alyssa took a big chance at the event & knew that by wearing a dress like she, there was also a chance it could be the difference between winning & losing.  Alyssa joined me to talk about the experience & to explain why she decided to fight the stigma on a World stage!

The narrative around cannabis is shifting, and while it’s spreading like wildfire through North America, the rest of the world is playing catch up at varying degrees. This episode our favourite - and only - Sessions facilitator, Tiyana Matliovski, is taking the reigns, and for the last episode of season two, she wants to take you on a tour down under. She is joined by husband Surjeet Shetty, and together they discuss their recent return home to Australia after living and working in Vancouver since 2016, and their plans to support the cannabis shift back home with their new venture Goodshift Co. When it comes to cannabis, the difference between the Australian and North American landscape is like night and day. Throughout season two we’ve touched on the many flaws of the newly legalised system in Canada, yet as it is, patients can access their medicine easily, community education is a focus, and the market is blooming. On the other hand, in Australia, where 85% of people believe cannabis should be available medicinally, and more than 35% of people have used cannabis at some point in their lifetime, simply getting a medical prescription is extremely expensive and can take months.  For the wider community, the plant is still marred by misinformation and propaganda, it is feared and heavily stigmatised, but there is still hope. For Tiyana & Surjeet, helping further the cannabis conversation was the catalyst to starting their new online store, Goodshift Co. Launching in 2020, the online boutique for health-conscious and sustainable living, is built on a belief in science and innovation as well as ancient traditions and alternative practices. Their curated offerings include a range of contemporary health, wellness and lifestyle products to service the Australian market. With a focus on hemp and other holistic products, Goodshift Co is committed to purveying the highest quality, ethical and sustainable goods. The aim is to tap into the curiosity and needs of the growing number of individuals in Australia exploring the shifting narrative around alternative therapies. Even more exciting Goodshift Co will launch with its very own subscription box, the Shifty Box, which is a quarterly, botanical (read cannabis), edible infusion recipe box. Shifty Box partners with cannabis chefs from around the world to bring unique, tried and tested, botanical infusions recipes to consumers who looking for more than just the good old fashioned pot brownie. Sign up here for updates to Goodshift Co and Shifty Box to stay informed on launch dates and early bird promotions. Let Us Take You On a Tour Down Under Tiyana Matliovski & Surjeet Shetty Download

Kirk and Trevor discuss cannabis-related workplace issues with the world’s largest advocacy group for small businesses. After one year of legalization, the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses (CFIB) surveyed their 110,000 members discovering 10,000 Canadian small business owners have confronted cannabis-related issues. As the discussion digs deep into the survey numbers we learn much of the hype promoted before legalization did not materialize yet, small business owners are still dealing with employees smelling of cannabis, poor government-offered educational opportunities, and defining impairment. Ryan Mallough, the director of Provincial Affairs for Ontario, explains how CFIB normally lobbies government for better taxes, laws, regulations, and how his organization has become the primary source of cannabis education for many of their members.

Today's Podcast is brought to you by Periodic Effects :) Most cannabis consumers know that edibles & smoking produce very different results. But if new users don’t understand the different impacts of THC metabolism when eaten vs inhaled, it can lead to a negative experience! We’ll dive deeper into the science of how THC is converted into 11-OH-THC across consumption methods to help you communicate the difference in experience to customers.

Y2K feels like it was just yesterday, but as you know, soon we’ll be entering the third decade of this millennium. Barring a cataclysmic event, it’s reasonable to assume that the popularity of cannabis will continue to grow. Thus far it has done a stellar job of creeping it’s way back into the mainstream,, once again embedding itself as a staple ingredient for a happy and healthy lifestyle. Yet with all the hubbub around recreational cannabis, it was it’s medical potential that paved the way for this dramatic shift in public opinion. Alas, there’s still a lot of scepticism and confusion around medical cannabis. All too often I hear questions like, “isn’t it just a placebo? Does it really even work?  Are people just getting high? Which is why this episode on chronic pain management and cannabinoid therapy is a must for anyone who’s ever pondered “what the hell is medical cannabis?” We’re very lucky as this Session we have Dr Sana-Ara Ahmed hosting, a practicing clinical Anesthesiologist, Interventional Pain & Cannabinoid Medicine Specialist in Canada. She is the owner and operator of Alberta based medical clinic Genuvis Health, which provides integrative and compassionate chronic pain management for Calgarians. The successful incorporation of medical cannabis into her practice for treating chronic pain, anxiety, depression, functional sleep disorders and opioid related issues has well established Dr. Ahmed as an expert in the field. She is joined by Shabana Safari, colleague and nurse at Genuvis Health who has been working with Dr Ahemd for more than a year. This episode they addresses that big green elephant in the clinic;  when is comes to understanding medical cannabis the wider medical community is rather uninformed. This leaves many patients vulnerable and open to harm caused by unchecked biases and misinformation, as well as diminished treatment options. Dr Ahmed’s clinic is one of just a few that utilise cannabinoid therapy, and she is one of just a few doctors that are specialising in this treatment modality. Interestingly both Dr Ahmed and Shabana entered the world of medical cannabis with biases toward the plant. Like many, there was an underlying distrust as well as a big dose of scepticism towards the concept of cannabis as medicine. Both women reveal how it was their first hand experience interacting with and seeing the incredible transformations of patients that ignited their passion for the plant. A must listen episode for all healthcare professionals, tune in as Dr Ahmed and Shabana speak frankly about their experiences treating patients with cannabis.
Today's podcast is brought to you by Cannabis Science Podcast :) As more countries begin to open their markets to cannabis, a group of products stand to become the next multi-billion-dollar segment of this industry. Topical cannabis is big business in the modern era, but its uses go at least as far back as 2000 BCE and likely much earlier. Salves, creams, ointments, and bars are just a few of the cannabis-infused products being created by prestige skincare and cosmetic brands. Besides the money being made, the potential benefits are very promising. Yet one question seems to be on everyone’s mind…do these products really work? In this episode the team explores the science to answer these questions and more. Are these products really the “crème de la crème”? Additional information and references:
