LThis podcast by Brave New Weed was recorded live at The Alchemist’s Kitchen in New York City, it is super digestible and a great listen!
Dr. Junella Chin talks all things CBD including how she's experienced the benefits personally, and the results she's seen in patients she treats, plus she dives into the Endo-Cannabinoid System and the science behind how CBD works.
A Miraculous Molecule
"I don’t believe in miracles but in many ways, CBD (cannabidiol) is a miraculous molecule.
“It treats an estimated 105 illnesses – no other medicine on earth does that -- more effectively than allopathic meds and with NONE of the side effects.
Anyone over 40 is familiar with one or all of the three illnesses it is most often prescribed for -- pain, stress and insomnia. I know just how effective it is—I use it for all of them.
At the same time, there is a lot of confusion/ignorance about what CBD (and medical marijuana in general) is.
That’s because it’s unlike other medications. Doctors, who have no training in botanical meds, don’t understand it; the mainstream media takes it on sporadically but it’s more of a “gee whiz, isn’t this novel” subtext. They’re totally unaware of the serious research that is proving its efficacy and of the millions of people around the world using it with success.
The thing is, it may not be mainstream right now, but it’s coming. I know."
