Thank You Nicky Show Episode 2: Canna Mamas
This one is for you Canna Moms! This episode is probably one of my favorites.
Not only was this an entertaining show, but my guest Jillene Doolkadir gave us all the tea - not ganja tea (unfortunately). Jillene broke down the marijuana laws and how it applies to parents, the difference between CBD and THC, how to get a medical card, and how to get started in the cannabis industry. You can also catch this cute trailer on my YouTube - please subscribe guys I need it!
Being that the number of cannabis user that parents - particularly mothers - has risen tremendously in the past decade. This is mostly attributed to the legalization of marijuana for both medicinal and recreational use. But what I was curious about was the repercussions of these new laws as it pertained parents who are using medicinally here in the state of Florida. I live in Miami, and CBD and medicinal cannabis with THC is definitely legal. But there are a few hidden surprises and conflicting regulations that we may not be aware of.
Is CBD ok?
I can personally say that I have used CBD oil for help with my anxiety. I also LOVE a CBD salves for muscle pain. In fact, I gave my own mother a CBD salves after she went through a major surgery and she could not believe how well it worked. Although I can personally vouch for CBD because I have had great experiences with it, that doesn't mean that will be the case for everyone. And there is also still so much research going on around CBD. So even though I recommend it, there is still a lot of data to be reviewed. I am not as comfortable with recommending THC products because I feel there is not enough information. Plus, I believe it effects everyone differently. But more importantly, there is a lot of legal grey areas that we as parents should know. Especially if you are using THC cannabis medicinally in Florida.
That is why I brought in Jillene Doolkadir, who is an expert in the field of cannabis law and helps her clients build up there budding brands. See what I did there? "Budding brands"? Ok moving along...
