About This Episode

Welcome to another episode of The Cannabis Reporter Pro Series Podcast sponsored by Blue Mountain Energy, leading experts in energy efficiency and exclusive distributor of the Sierra Fresh Gas-Powered Climate Control Systems serving the cannabis industry.

Indoor cannabis cultivation requires precision climate control, which can be very costly when you factor in heat-intensive grow lights and the size of the canopy. Beyond the cost, energy burdens can present zoning and permitting issues, especially in areas where the local grid is already tapped. In fact, the amount of energy required per square foot of canopy could limit the size of your grow regardless of the size of your facility. Infrastructure upgrades to accommodate the amount of electricity you will need to maximize growing space in a large facility will cost a fortune.

What if you could actually increase the size of your canopy and, at the same time, reduce your HVAC electricity consumption and costs by up to eighty percent? Well, as I’ve learned in the last few weeks, Blue Mountain Energy has made that entirely possible and Eric Riccardi is here to explain how. Be sure to check out Blue Mountain Energy’s booth at MJBizCon in Las Vegas. Eric will be there and happy to answer questions about their remarkable technology.

About This Episode

With political chaos dominating the news cycles lately, consequential policy changes don’t get the media attention they deserve. Monumental rollbacks of environmental regulations and reversal of consumer protections happen almost daily under the radar. For example, earlier this month, the Environmental Protection Agency announced that it would restrict the amount of scientific data that can be used to craft public health policy. This falls on the heels of the USDA culling research initiatives and dislocating scientists who inform safe practices in agriculture and, more recently, executive orders to undo vital public health legislation such as the Clean Air Act. That came as no surprise, considering that data related to climate change was removed from the public-facing EPA website in January of 2017, as if that would erase the science behind it or give credence to climate denial.

For the last couple of decades, scientific warnings about climate change have gone largely under-reported by media. In the last couple of years, the dramatic rise in cataclysmic events – whole regions leveled by massive hurricanes, tsunami-like storm surges, thousand-year floods and catastrophic wildfires – has made climate change hard to deny, but mainstream media has been reluctant to report that human activity has caused the “new normal” with any sense of urgency.

Although media coverage of the student protests about climate change around the world has drawn attention to the issue, efforts to address it here at home have spawned a new wave of resistance from those who consider initiatives like the Green New Deal a threat. “It’s pie in the sky,” “It’s unrealistic,” “You’ll have to trade in your car for a bicycle,” and “You’ll lose your job if you work in a coal mine,” are just a few of the arguments amplified by the opposition in social media and false messaging campaigns.

For anyone passing judgement about the Green New Deal, it’s important to understand that the negative propaganda about it originates with those who have a vested interest in making sure it doesn’t become law. Not ironically, they hail from the same corporate sectors that convinced the public – and Congress – to ban hemp in 1937. Why? Because they sought to eliminate competition for the then-new fossil fuels, which would eventually replace hemp for making every-day consumables like paper, textiles, composites, fuel, plastic, rope and hundreds of other products made more profitably using petrochemicals and trees, and pharmaceuticals, which replaced medicinal cannabis.

Since prohibition began, damage caused by fossil fuels, deforestation, unsustainable factory farms and the pharmaceutical industry have led to multiple environmental and public health crises. There is indisputable evidence that climate extremes we are experiencing now are directly linked to carbon emissions, unsustainable agriculture and deforestation. We’re approaching a tipping point at which reversing the warming trend will be impossible unless we take dramatic action to reduce emissions now. There’s no time to debate whether climate change is real. It is. There is no question we need to achieve carbon neutrality goals of the Green New Deal if we want to survive. The question is, how?

While the Green New Deal sets forth ambitious goals with benchmarks for drastically reducing carbon emissions over time, its authors have yet to instill public confidence that it will work – or explain how to achieve them without drastically diminishing quality of life. Who knows if they even know.

The solution may be as simple as revisiting a period of history when most consumable commodities were made of hemp. Fossil fuels (oil, trees, LNG, etc.) and industrial crops (BT Cotton, GMO Corn) have had a good run, but nearly everything made of those toxic resources can be made more sustainably with hemp biomass. The only barriers are 1.) lack of infrastructure, 2.) cost of innovation and 3.) limited market for hemp biomass, which could be overcome if Congress would green-light incentives to support innovation and the build-out of infrastructure required to fast track hemp as a carbon neutral alternative.

That’s the topic of today’s show and our guests, Trent Paasch and Mike Lewis of Third Wave Farms have ideas about ways in which to do just that.

About This Episode

There’s no question this is an exciting time to be in the cannabis industry. Not since the start of the Dot Com Era have we seen such rapid growth in an emerging industry that pushed boundaries of what anyone thought could be possible like the tech or cannabis industries do.

Except for the most obvious difference between the two, mainly having to do with legal barriers or lack thereof, there have been a number of parallels between them. Like the beginning of the tech boom, the cannabis industry emerged from relative obscurity, which has necessitated a heavy reliance upon media to educate consumers and help industry stakeholders to overcome a steep learning curve.

While the media has played a significant role in raising awareness and driving consumer demand, trade shows, expos and educational conferences have been equally or even more important because they provide audiences with hands-on opportunities to learn about cannabis and explore new products. They also provide entrepreneurs with valuable opportunity to network with one another and introduce their offerings to new markets.

For media, events have been incredibly valuable when it comes to staying abreast of industry trends and connecting the trailblazers who are shaping the industry. For that reason, we not only relish the opportunity to partner with event producers as a media sponsor, we are eager to spread the word and encourage people to attend these events to learn why the cannabis industry is creating a healthier and more sustainable future.

One such event is MJBIZCON, produced by Marijuana Business Daily, which is one of the oldest and most respected industry trade publications. For four consecutive years, MJBizCon has been named as one of the Fastest 50 growing trade shows in North America by Trade Show Executive Magazine. This year, the event will feature roughly 13,000 exhibitors and attendance is expected to reach more than 35,000, making it one of the largest – if not the largest – cannabis events.

In this episode, Jess Tyler, the Vice President of Events for Marijuana Business Daily, shares insights about how their flagship event MJBizCon has made history in this industry.

We start the episode with a couple of announcements:

First, full disclosure, we’re very proud to be one of MJBizCon’s media partners and look forward to broadcasting interviews from “Radio Row” on site at the event in Las Vegas in December.

Also, we are thrilled to announce that Blue Mountain Energy has become our newest sponsor and I’d like to welcome them to The Cannabis Reporter family. We are grateful for their support of our educational platform! What we appreciate most about BME is that they are committed to helping cannabis growers drastically reduce their energy consumption and can save growers up to 80% on energy costs. And, by the way, they will be at MJBizCon showcasing their line of indoor climate control systems that are powered by natural gas and propane. So, if you’ll be at the event, be sure to check out their booth in the exhibition hall.

About Our Guests

Jess Tyler hails from the hectic arena of exposition events and, in her capacity as Vice President of Events, she oversees the entire roster of Marijuana Business Daily’s major expos, which take place several times per year in various host cities throughout the year. Tyler’s love of tradeshows within the B2B space really began while working as a registration coordinator at Experient, a Maritz Global Events Company, where she supported some of the top tradeshows in the world, such as the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) and MAGIC.

About This Episode

In the world of contact sports, athletes appear to have super human resilience. The ease at which they seem to shake off serious blows and get back in the game is nothing short of amazing, considering that any one such occurrence would have most of us carried off of a field in a stretcher and likely convalescing for weeks in writhing pain. Whether they’re keeping their eyes on the prize, or simply toughing it out for the good of the team, players pushing their physical limits like good warriors in the battlefield make it seem as though they’re completely oblivious to the risks of playing through injuries.

But off the field may be a different story. Strained ligaments, broken ribs, whiplash and concussive blows to the head are just a few of the injuries that can’t be ignored once the adrenaline subsides and the residual pain kicks in. The NFL, MMA, MLB and other contact sports leagues are notorious for dispensing conventional drugs to help athletes cope with those injuries. And, when NSAIDS don’t work, they won’t hesitate to prescribe opiates. While they may be effective for managing the immediate pain in the short term, they do little to address the chronic pain, inflammation and other problems repetitive injuries can cause later in life.

This is especially true of traumatic head injuries, which are all too common in contact sports. Medical researchers have begun to associate repetitive concussions with the degenerative brain condition known as Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy or CTE, which often manifests as chronic headaches, insomnia and dementia. While it has been nearly impossible for doctors to definitively diagnose CTE in a living brain, former athletes experiencing the symptoms of it can attest that it is debilitating. While opiates, antipsychotics and benzos are often prescribed to treat symptoms of CTE, those drugs pose dangerous, irreparable side effects and have a high potential for addiction, which can make matters even worse.

This is where cannabis has proven to be a promising therapy for retired players afflicted with CTE and chronic pain stemming from a career of high-impact sports injuries. Those who have access to cannabis say that it is helping them cope with the symptoms and appears to slow the progression of the disease.

There is also mounting scientific evidence that cannabis is not only a safer alternative to commonly prescribed pain killers, it can help to protect players who are prone to repetitive concussive injuries. That explains why so many former athletes are actively pushing for their sports franchises to end the overprescribing of dangerous pharmaceuticals and, instead, allow the use of cannabis to treat sports injuries and protect the brain.

That’s the topic of this show and Rugby Champion Anna Symonds joins us to talk about her efforts to educate her league about cannabis, among other advocacy work she is doing.

About This Episode

As one of our nation’s fastest growing sectors, the cannabis industry is on the precipice of complete liberation from the confines of prohibition – or so it would seem. With nearly every blue-ticket presidential candidate advocating for federal legalization and public acceptance at an all-time high, marijuana policy reform is beginning to appear inevitable. With an economic upside that’s hard to ignore, it’s no longer a matter of if, but when.

But “When?” is a good question.

Although business is thriving, it’s not without a lot of regulatory challenges no other conventional industry has ever had to overcome. Banking, insurance, patient access and standardization are just a few of the issues stakeholders have to work around on a daily basis.  Cannabis enterprises are also subjected to a higher level of scrutiny than conventional businesses.  But, despite the extraordinary challenges, the industry is still thriving and the economic upside is becoming harder for lawmakers to ignore. While pro-cannabis measures addressing the barriers, like the States Act for example, have been passed in Congress, they have yet to see the light of day in the Senate. And, until we have regulation to support the industry, stakeholders will continue to operate around the barriers.

But that’s a double-edged sword.

Forged by altruistic pioneers, the industry has for the most part policed itself for its own greater good.  While the lack of regulation has allowed for untethered innovation, research and development without the regulatory red-tape of FDA oversight, it has also left room for bad actors to raise red flags that invite more scrutiny of critics. Take for example the recent news about the numerous deaths caused by tainted e-cigarettes and vape products, which could have been avoided had there been sufficient regulatory standards in place to guide manufacturing best practices. Even though the CDC hasn’t identified a single culprit, and confirmed that deaths were related to non-cannabis ingredients and not cannabis, the tragic events present anti-marijuana lobbies aiming to shoot down legislation with enough ammunition to stop momentum.

That’s the topic of today’s show and our guest, Cannabis expert and dispensary owner Steve Shapiro, weighs in on how regulation will help avert these mishaps.

About Our Guests

Steve Shapiro on the Cannabis Reporter Radio Show hosted by Snowden Bishop

Steve Shapiro is the Founder and CEO of Superior Dispensary, one of the first Arizona-based companies to secure a license to own and operate a dispensary. Since then his dispensary business has expanded to also include an edibles kitchen, extraction lab and cannabis cultivation operation. Steve was a Financial Advisor for 25 years before entering the industry. Having studied cannabis and its history from a young age, Steve knew that the government was not truthful about cannabis and spent years collecting articles about cannabis. In the mid-1990’s, he had an opportunity to meet Jack Herer, whose book filled gaps of knowledge missing in his own research and strengthened his resolve to pursue a path that would lead to his work in the industry. By the time the Arizona Medical Marijuana Act passed, he had already become an expert and was well-prepared to open his first dispensary in July of 2013. As a patient, he has experienced first-hand the therapeutic benefits of cannabis. Having lost friends and family to various health issues, he is convinced that cannabis could have helped them if not saved their lives.

About This Episode

Not so long ago, very few elected officials would risk political capital supporting cannabis policy reform — even when confronted with the truth, that prohibition was predicated on a great deception which led to the mass incarceration of left-leaning and minority cannabis users. So deep was the stigma cemented in the American psyche that most lawmakers refused to even entertain a debate on the taboo issue. Thanks to persistent activism over the last several decades, public demand for legalization has grown to the point that lawmakers who don’t support it risk losing re-election.

And, rightly so… States regulating cannabis have experienced economic growth, less crime and fewer opiate fatalities while enabling patients to explore cannabis therapy without threat of prosecution. With indisputable evidence that cannabis is harmless and, in fact, saving lives, it never should have been scheduled alongside Heroin, Meth, LSD and other dangerous Controlled Substances, which begs the question, why hasn’t it been removed from Schedule 1?

There is no question that the arcane federal policy has caused more harm than good, especially among the minority communities most frequently targeted by law enforcement. It has destroyed the families of millions of incarcerated marijuana offenders and perpetuated an insidious cycle of incarceration and economic hardship when ex-convicts are stripped of voting rights and barred from securing housing and gainful employment. Even though cannabis is legal in more than half of the United States, law enforcement agencies are still prosecuting marijuana possession charges and thousands of offenders are still incarcerated. And for what?

Billions of tax dollars have been spent enforcing marijuana policy, prosecuting offenders and incarcerating convicts. With the exception of judicial personnel, the private prison and bail bonds industries as well as the elected officials who rely on their campaign contributions, no one benefits from locking up marijuana users.

Whether for political expediency or financial gain, the ongoing prosecution and incarceration of harmless individuals for violating a policy enacted for nefarious reasons amounts to an egregious miscarriage of justice. The sinister truth about that has been broadly publicized and lawmakers are not blind to it, so there’s no excuse to perpetuate the lie as if it hasn’t already been exposed.

Moreover, they know that a vast majority of their constituents know the truth about prohibition. With that knowledge comes a moral obligation to do the right thing. If our elected officials won’t fight for justice, it’s up to us to support the activists and advocacy groups that will.

That’s the topic of today’s show and our guests, Steve DeAngelo and Sarah Gersten, are doing just that under the auspices of a new organization named the Last Prisoner Project, which is launching a campaign to ensure every prisoner serving time for non-violent marijuana offenses is released.

Before we bring them in – Josh Crossney has an update about the Cannabis Science Conference coming up in the first week of September.

About This Episode

In our last Pro Series interview, we spoke with HUB International’s TJ Frost, a practice leader who helped to establish HUB’s full-service cannabis vertical to gain insights about insurance in the cannabis industry and how he works with cannabis companies to design customized risk services, claims management, and compliance support solutions to meet their needs. In this interview, we delve into another aspect of HUB International’s cannabis vertical – Management and Professional Liability with HUB Colorado Vice President, Patrick Ryder, who works closely with executive leaders in the cannabis industry.

As an increasing number of states move to legalize cannabis, new and established cannabis enterprises face more and more competition to secure market share and attract enough talent meet the demand of a growing consumer base. They also face greater risks, which requires scalable insurance solutions that protect stakeholders from liabilities that are unique to this industry and provide security for their workforce. These protections also help to attract and retain talented employees in this competitive industry.

HUB International is one of the few major insurance brokers that provides an array of insurance options for cannabis companies. Having developed an entire vertical serving the cannabis sector, HUB International now serves cannabis industry clients in 33 states, throughout Canada and other countries around the world where cannabis is legal.

About This Episode

The demand for credible information about cannabis is insatiable, evidenced by the fact that the term “cannabis” is among the most frequently searched on most common search engines. Fortunately, there is no shortage of information about it. A Google search for the keyword “cannabis” yields more than 242 million results. It’s daunting, but hasn’t always been that way. Just a decade ago, information about cannabis was hard to find online outside of a handful of pro-marijuana outlets and lot of anti-marijuana propaganda sites. Unbiased information was scarce with only a few online outlets presenting serious data, scholarly research, legal information and credible resources about medical cannabis.

Times have changed! The volumes of scientific research available online has grown exponentially since then. Regulation states are debunking anti-marijuana myths with real time data about ways in which legal markets have diminished illicit drug use and related crime. Hundreds of new cannabis brands are launching to meet overwhelming demand in states where it’s legal and, as more and more states are legalizing it for medical or adult use, news about cannabis is seeping into mainstream media. With a vast majority of Americans now favoring some form of legalization and a warming attitude about ending prohibition brewing in Congress, media coverage is driving more consumer-curiosity. The anticipation is palpable, which explains why there are so many media outlets catering to advocates.

But with so much information now available to consumers, sorting through it to determine what’s credible or not is still a daunting task. With all of the excitement about the emerging industry, there’s bound to be a lot of hyperbole and unverified claims being made by well-intentioned enthusiasts. As interest in cannabis grows among mainstream audiences, patients are beginning to rely upon information they find online to make critical decisions about treatment options. The need for factually-sober information is becoming more and more critical. That’s the topic of today’s show and media maverick Michael Klein is here to talk about it.

About This Episode

When Congress passed the 21stAmendment to repeal the federal prohibition of alcohol, a number of states opted to maintain statewide temperance laws until 1966, when Mississippi was the last dry state to finally end prohibition. Even then, states had the authority to enact their own rules – for example, no sale of alcohol on Sundays or after 2:00 a.m. every other day. Some limited the age to legally purchase alcohol to 18 years of age, others 21 years of age. Some states have allowed counties and municipalities to set their own local laws. To this day, there are dozens of dry counties, where you’d be hard pressed to find any alcohol at all.

As more and more states adopt cannabis legalization measures, industry stakeholders and consumers alike are grappling with the fact that not every municipality is on board. Some state measures allow local governments to establish their own ordinances having to do with zoning, permits, licenses and hours of operation. While some states require municipalities to get voter approval for local ordinances that stray too far from state rules, others are at the mercy of the local city council or county commissions. But either way, discrepancies in the law wind up being settled in court.

Such was the case in Charlton, Massachusetts, where the local land court ruled in favor of an agricultural land owner who had been barred by the local town council from converting his farm into a million square foot cultivation facility. In a state that is still in the process of closing legislative loopholes in its adult-use measure passed last year, and where local lawmakers have yet to learn the many ways in which the cannabis industry can make a positive impact in their communities, the Land Court decision was a big win for the industry. That’s the topic of today’s show and our guest Robert Munnelly is here to help us understand how that decision will impact Massachusetts and other states that are in the process of legalizing cannabis.

About This Episode

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, or so the old adage goes. That is especially true in the rapidly-evolving cannabis industry.  Unlike businesses in other sectors, cannabis companies have unique challenges and, due to legal ambiguities prevalent in this space, they have been grossly underserved when it comes to highly-regulated industries like banking, securities and insurance. In fact, until just a few years ago, most institutional service providers either refused, or were prohibited from, working with cannabis companies.

HUB International is one of the few major insurance brokers that provides an array of insurance options for cannabis companies. Having developed an entire vertical serving the cannabis sector, HUB International now serves cannabis industry clients in 33 states, throughout Canada and other countries around the world where cannabis is legal.

In this Pro Series interview, practice leader TJ Frost explains how HUB International has capacity to provide coverage for just about every size and type of company in the cannabis industry and explores what stakeholders should expect in terms of coverage. What is, perhaps, most compelling about TJ is his passion for the sector that was born from a personal loss, which inspired him to serve as an unrelenting advocate to help cannabis companies navigate the complexities of insuring their businesses against unexpected losses.

Why VA Policy Causes More Harm Than Good.</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.thecannabisreporter.com">The Cannabis Reporter</a>.</p> Snowden Bishop interviews Veterans and PTSD Specialist Dr. Jordan Tishler on why VA policy causes more harm than good.
Learning about yet another veteran suicide at the Phoenix VA underscores the urgent need for policy reform to allow veterans the freedom to access the healing power of cannabis. Under current policy, Veterans who could benefit most from its therapeutic healing power would risk losing their VA medical benefits if caught with cannabis in their system.

A number of doctors, researchers and advocacy groups have made concerted efforts to convince the VA to end its “conventional-treatment-or-no-treatment” policy. Even the most compelling testimony from veterans about ways in which cannabis saves lives has been met with resistance. The Phoenix VA is one of the most staunch opponents and policy makers have gone out of their way to block research that would provide the institution with evidence that cannabis therapy is far safer and more effective than the most commonly prescribed drugs that often do more harm than good.

After sacrificing so much to protect our freedom, it is simply unacceptable that veterans are denied the freedom to choose whatever medicine helps them without sacrificing benefits they’re entitled to receive. After receiving an article written by NORML-AZ director Mikel Weiser sent by SWCC, we felt compelled to do something and called upon a number of industry peers, advocacy groups and volunteers to stage a rally in support of veterans rights on Veterans Day right in Phoenix. In this episode, we interviewed two veterans who have been refused care with dignity from the Phoenix VA, and a PTSD physician who knows why the VA policy needs to change.]]>

Episode I, you’ll recall listening to NY State Assemblyman and veterinarian Dr. Stephen Katz talk about hemp-derived CBD medication for canines.
Last week, Chef Payton Curry spoke with me about edibles, and challenges new patients have getting the dosage right. Since edible medicine is absorbed through digestion, it can take up to an hour to feel the full effect. As he explained, those who aren’t familiar with the delay may think it’s not working and take more… If the medication is high in THC, that can lead to a rather intense euphoric experience, which may be a good thing for those who like the euphoria. But for those who don’t enjoy getting high – or for those who need to function during the day – it can be an uncomfortable problem.
In case you’re wondering what delayed effect of edible medicinals for humans has to do with veterinary formulas for dogs, there is a correlation.
In today’s interview, Dr. Katz has returned for a follow up interview and brought his scientific A-Team, Tony Alfiere, a self-educated scientist, and Dr. Jim Sharkey, who are currently working with Dr. Katz to develop the next generation of Therabis – therapeutic cannabis for canines. They are using new medical accelerant technology invented by Alfiere to expedite absorption and delivery of THC in edibles and elixers, which solves the problem of delayed effectiveness common in edibles. Dr. Jim Sharkey is the Chief Science Officer at Therabis working with Alfiere to apply that technology to therapeutic CBD formulas for dogs and cats.
We hope you enjoy Cannabis for Canines Part II: A New Leash On Life for Man’s Best Friend!

Celebrity Chef Curry On Cooking Cannabis In Your Kitchen https://www.thecannabisreporter.com/14274-2/ Wed, 13 Jul 2016 11:53:49 +0000 https://tcr.snv29e6b-liquidwebsites.com/?p=14274 <p>Host Snowden Bishop interviews celebrity Chef Payton Curry about the benefits of medicinal marijuana edibles.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.thecannabisreporter.com/14274-2/">Celebrity Chef Curry On Cooking Cannabis In Your Kitchen</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.thecannabisreporter.com">The Cannabis Reporter</a>.</p> Host Snowden Bishop interviews celebrity Chef Payton Curry about the benefits of medicinal marijuana edibles. J.P. Holyoak, the Chairman of the Arizona Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, I was surprised to learn he is a conservative dad who never smoked pot and throughout most of his adulthood he was skeptical about the merits of cannabis. Of course, that changed when he learned how medical marijuana could help his young daughter who suffered from a severe seizure disorder.
Even though he’s now an expert, he once had to overcome a learning curve. Through trial and error and listening to experts, he found the best formulations, dosing and methods of medicating his daughter. He acknowledged that cooking cannabis edibles takes some education.
There are a lot of people out there like J.P. who learn to appreciate the incredible healing benefits of marijuana. New patients and parents must also learn the best way to use it. Learning how to smoke it is easy. Chances are that, on any given city block, they can find a neighbor who would be happy to share their knowledge. For patients who don’t like smoking marijuana, or parents who don’t want their children smoking medicine, a little investigation will help them find other simple ways to medicate: vaping pens, tinctures, oils, wax, salves and, perhaps the most enjoyable, edibles!
Unfortunately, high-quality and properly measured edibles are expensive and hard to find, and if you aren’t familiar with dosing, they can be hard to manage. Making marijuana edibles at home can save money, but the nuances of cooking cannabis take education.
That’s something my guest today, Chef Payton Curry knows a lot about. He owns a popular eatery in Scottsdale, Arizona and is in the process of opening a commercial kitchen to supply edibles to dispensaries. With a burning desire to help children, their parents and patients learn to get the most out of medicinal marijuana, he moonlights as a cannabis chef teaching people how to prepare medicated food with whole plant cannabis and calculate proper dosing in their recipes.
We aren’t just talking pot brownies here. Chef Curry is cooking cannabis with whole grains, organic vegetables, oils and veggies well as vegan and gluten free edibles. With recipes for “MunchEase” like Crepes of Wrath, Am I There Yet, Baked with Kine-Ness, Yummus and Mary-Nara Sauce he has a wonderful way of making medicinal food fun to prepare and eat.
I hope you enjoy Chef Curry On Cooking Cannabis in Your Kitchen!
