Suppressing Cannabis Spirituality

In this episode, Doug deep dives into cannabis spirituality and why it is overlooked in modern western society. In addition, he shares his history of growing up around his father who is a decorated military veteran. 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.
