CBD Consumer Safety

Mechanical engineer Darwin Millard, AKA the “Spock of Cannabis” joins Max and Steven to dive deep into consumer safety in the cannabis industry. Darwin explains how cannabis is currently regulated from growth to finished product. We learn about the ASTM International standards committee for cannabis standards- known as D37. The committee was created to insure product quality for public health and safety. Darwin shares his deep knowledge and explains what consumers should look for when buying cbd products. He even breaks down common but confusing cbd terminology. If you’ve ever wanted to know the difference between full spectrum, broad spectrum and isolate or wondered about cannabinoids, terpenes and phytochemicals or asked yourself if hemp seeds are the same as hemp cbd oil, this is the episode for you. In Doc G’s corner, Dr. Ben Gonzalez tackles the topic of functional medicine, how the body’s systems all work together and the concept of healing disease via the endocannabinoid system rather than continuously medicating one condition in isolation from other diseases concurrently existing in the body. The latter approach results in patients finding themselves on multiple prescriptions while still being sick. He explains the power of our endocannabinoid receptors for harnessing the healing benefits of cbd oil for holistic, multi-systemic healing and improving overall health by feeding the endocannabinoid system which for most people is deficient. And in the mail sack section, we hear from a customer in Colorado who was curious about cbd for pain. He asks about drug testing, topical and sublingual use of cbd oil and asks about how to assure product quality. Be sure to listen to learn more!
