Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • The story of Jenny’s dad using cannabis, CBD, and medicinal mushrooms throughout his cancer treatment
  • What CBD is and how it’s different from THC
  • The benefits of using cannabis, CBD, and mushrooms
  • What the endo-cannabinoid system is
  • Why people would want to use CBD for wellness
  • Medicinal mushrooms and psychedelic mushrooms


Key Takeaways:

  • In the United States, it’s federally legal to sell CBD products that have 0.3% THC or less. Anything higher than that, you have to get it from a licensed dispensary.
  • CBD and THC are two of the most prevalent compounds in the cannabis plant and both have therapeutic benefits. If they’re in a product together, they can boost each other up.
  • CBD helps with sleep, anxiety, and pain.
  • THC is the compound in cannabis that gives you the high. 
  • Inhalation is the fastest acting but lasts for the shortest amount of time. The oil tincture under the tongue can take 15-20 minutes to have an effect but lasts anywhere from 4-6 hours. An edible or a capsule will take longer to set in because it has to go through your digestive system but it lasts longer.


Action Step:

  • Consider using CBD to help you with sleep, anxiety, and pain.


Jenny said:

“The more CBD in the product and the less THC, the less likely you are to get high.”


“That’s why I wanted to put them in one book, mushrooms and cannabis, because the stigma is changing so much… they can be very therapeutic if we learn how to work with them correctly.”
