Suppressing Cannabis Spirituality
In this episode, Doug deep dives into cannabis spirituality and why it is overlooked in modern western society.

As a child, he saw first-hand how soldiers returning from war were consistently suffering from PTSD. His experiences as a youth fueled his passion to help these soldiers with the Patriot Hemp Company. This company is “serving those who serve this country and the greater values of life, liberty, and the pursuit of health and happiness.” To achieve this, they sell CBD and other products for military service personnel that need the benefits of CBD but cannot risk testing positive for THC.

Dr. Steven Todd is a retired oral implantologist and dental anesthesiologist. Today, he is also the author of The Hemp Healthcare Initiative, a program that focuses on educating healthcare professionals and staff about the endocannabinoid system. Dr. Todd joins me on this episode to discuss how all healthcare providers and workers must be educated properly about the endocannabinoid system and it’s vast impact on the body’s overall health. Perhaps most importantly, he also offers a structured solution to counterbalance the kickbacks healthcare providers & physicians receive from pharmaceutical companies. This substantial monetary compensation will incentivize healthcare providers to suggest Cannabis to the patients they serve while allowing them to enter this growing hemp market. In conclusion, passionate about the health benefits and technology CBD, CBG, CBN and other cannabinoids provide, Dr. Steven Todd has opened his initiative to all healthcare providers, physicians, doctors & nurses.
