My core message is that Cannabis is medicine and this show is based on my own medical experience and 10-plus years of medical cannabis research, which led me to author my book “Hope and Healing: The Case for Cannabis” and publish three articles in 2019 in peer reviewed medical journals. I offer ground breaking information, insights, guidance, advice, education, inspiration and motivation regarding the topics covered regarding medical cannabis.
