2020 Garden Recap, Shifting Cultivation Mindsets, and More, with Rhizo Rich
Talented organic cultivator and GrowCast Team Member Rhizo Rich is back again! On this episode, Jordan and Rich discuss a list that they put together of all the different things that have changed in their garden over the course of 2020. Whether it’s reconsidering a long standing belief held about the effects of defoliation on cannabis, or second guessing the effectiveness of bud washing- open minded growers are always reconsidering strategies and products in their gardens. The guys also talk about the major leaps forward in light technology over the course of the past year or so, and speculate as to how much further they can evolve. Rich wraps up the show by talking about some of the best strains he’s brought into his garden in 2020- the ones he plans on keeping around for the foreseeable future… ---Forever Green Indoors LEDs- high quality LED fixtures made in the USA.

Episode 99 - Psychedelic Neuroscientist Cody Gibbons exposes the “Huge Lie” about Happiness
“Oneness...Forgiveness...Happiness...Feeling fuzzy.” We have a narrow range of words to describe complex feelings. But this group of underground scientists are using psychedelics and cannabinoids to trace the pathways in the brain that create those intricate feelings. This podcast is the cutting edge of psychedelic neuroscience, and it is mind boggling!  One of the great things about traveling in cannabis and psychedelic circles is that you meet all sorts of geniuses working away in their own corners trying to understand things like the biochemical basis of consciousness and other tiny, insubstantial matters. These men and women look like normal, everyday people but when they open their mouths you realize that their brains function quite literally, at a higher level than yours. This happens to small-brained people like me frequently. Cody Gibbons is one such big-brained psychedelic neuroscientist who I met in the Bay Area over the summer. He has worked on cannabinoid research at companies including GW Pharmaceuticals, and is currently researching "psychedelics as tools to clarify the mind/body interface.” I had to know more.  For example, he told me, “You can make high doses of melatonin psychoactive with THC. This produces the feeling you get at nightfall or dusk, when the sun goes down and the body begins to relax. A shift occurs, sort of the way your iPhone goes dark at night. Typically, we don't feel that shift unless the sun going down, but you can actually induce it at dawn with this THC/melatonin combination. You get the clear feeling that the day is ending in the morning.”  That’s pretty provocative. To some extent it explains why psychedelics open what Aldous Huxley called “the reducing valve of consciousness” and make us feel so expansive when we use them. Rather than attempting to concentrate the many subjects this podcast covers into a few paragraphs, let me instead give you a few nuggets to chew on. I hope they will lead you to press the “Play” button and thereby expanding your own consciousness.  “A lot of people understand “I feel fuzzy.” “Fuzzy” was a term coined by someone on psychedelics who felt soft on the inside. That’s an easy one. Our work is to understand the neural pathways of the more complex emotional states that most of us have.” “There are two types of forgiveness and two corresponding receptor groups. There’s forgiveness of self vs. forgiveness of others. As anyone who has ever taken MDMA knows, you can induce forgiveness of others without feeling forgiveness of self.”  “Analogs to LSD are not technically scheduled. You can buy them and even potentially distribute them legally. Put them in a baggie that says 'not for human consumption' and give them away.” “I’ve realized that consciousness is something completely different than what anyone thought. There’s been a lot of focus on the anatomical structure of the brain. Of course that’s important, as it contributes to the function of our bodies. But the function of mind doesn’t stem from the anatomical structure, but more so from the receptor population patterns in the brain. We have all of these neurons, that each express different sets of receptors. These receptor populations stretch across different neurons and not others. Our consciousness is really a function of this super advanced biochemical computer — that’s not a surprise. The surprise is that it’s more biochemically based than electrically based.” If you’d like to learn more, check out these links. * Thomas Ray * Professor/work breakdown * Shulgin publishing on Tom Ray's work * Youtube video presentations * Alexander Shulgin * Rick Strassman: DMT The Spirit Molecule

The Gary Null Show - 01.25.21
Gary takes on the real issues that the mainstream media is afraid to tackle. Tune in to find out the latest about health news, healing, politics, and the economy. The Covid-19 Pandemic as a Psychological Coup d’Etat Richard Gale and Gary Null PhD Progressive Radio Network, January 25, 2021 We have almost reached a full year since the spread of SARS-Cov2 was proclaimed a pandemic. If we are to believe the World Health Organization’s and individual governments’ official statistics, the number of confirmed cases is reaching 100 million with over 2 million deaths. Indeed, if these numbers can be relied upon, we can surely acknowledge there is a real pandemic. It would be common sense, therefore, to expect, in fact demand, international health agencies and governments to make every effort to identify the virus’ origin. Suspicions that the virus, now responsible for the spectrum of medical symptoms known as Covid-19, may have been bioengineered and escaped from a maximum security BSL-4 lab in Wuhan, China, were already voiced within a month after its identification was first reported. Several highly respected medical experts, including Dr. David Relman at Stanford University, have suggested there is a strong likelihood that the virus escaped the Wuhan facility. To date, early queries about its origins remain unanswered and new questions are mounting. Recently, Jamie Metzl, a WHO advisor who earlier served under Biden in the Senate and in Bill Clinton’s National Security Council and State Department, told the Toronto Sun that the hypothesis of the virus’ natural origin in a Wuhan wet market is “a lie.” It is no secret, Metzl noted, that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was heavily engaged in “gain of function” research to “amplify the virility of viruses.” That there is very reasonable evidence that coronaviruses were being engineered in a laboratory goes back to 2003 and perhaps earlier. That year, many Russian medical scientists, including Moscow’s head epidemiologist Dr. Nikolai Filatov, shared their opinions that the first SARS outbreak originated from a bioweapons lab. In January 2020, less than a month since the first reported case in Wuhan, Dr. Igor Nikulin, a former member of the United Nation’s Commission on Biological and Chemical Weapons, stated in an interview that the US has been funding biolaboratories throughout the world, such as Kazakhstan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Taiwan, Philippines, etc, and “wherever there are these American biolaboratories, or near them, there are outbreaks of new diseases, often unknown.” This was also confirmed by the founding president of EcoHealth Alliance, Dr. Peter Daszak, a fundamental player in the saga of “gain of function” research on coronavirus and other viral pathogens. During an interview at a scientific conference in Singapore in early December 2019, Daszak, less than a month before the first Covid-19 case in Wuhan, stated, “You can manipulate them in the lab pretty easily… Spike protein drives a lot of what happens with the coronavirus. Zoonotic risk. So you can get the sequence, you can build the protein — and we work with Ralph Baric at [the University of North Carolina] to do this — and insert the backbone of another virus and do some work in the lab.” Baric, by the way, told New York Magazine, “Can you rule out a laboratory escape? The answer in this case is probably not.” Baric has first hand knowledge of this probability. In 2016, one of the researchers in his University of North Carolina biosafety Level 3 lab was bitten by a mouse infected with a bioengineered SARS coronavirus strain. Worse, according to records obtained by ProPublica, the scientist was permitted to resume her life without quarantine. Baric’s lab also encountered other incidents that could have potentially released its engineered viruses upon the American public, however the university has refused to provide details. Back in 2015, Baric had warned that a bat virus could jump species and infect humans. In a study published in October 2003 for the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Baric and his colleagues had “assembled a full-length cDNA of the SARS-CoV Urbani strain, and have rescued molecularly cloned SARS viruses (infectious clone SARS-CoV) that contained the expected marker mutations inserted into their component clones.” This infectious coronavirus clone was subsequently patented but only after the CDC overruled the US Patent Office’s denial of issuance. That same year, Bill Gates appointed Anthony Fauci to serve on his foundation’s Global Grand Challenges Scientific Advisory Board. Shortly thereafter efforts commenced to develop a SARS-CoV vaccine, which included Moderna and Johnson and Johnson. To date, Moderna has been granted over 130 federal US patents to develop a vaccine against SARSCoV-2, including a military DARPA grant for mRNA vaccine technology in 2013. EcoHealth Alliance, according to Alexis Baden-Mayer, lead attorney and director for the Organic Consumers Association, has conducted remarkable investigative research into the “gain of function” studies and the primary individuals behind the overseeing and funding this research. She has discovered that the majority of EcoHealth’s funding derives from the US Department of Defense, the National Institutes of Health and Anthony Fauci. Baden-Mayer’s probing inquiries uncovered a cabal of controversial figures, including Daszak, Baric and his Chinese colleague Dr. Shi Zheng-li at the Wuhan lab, Bill Gate’s Foundation director Scott Dowell, former Human and Health Services’ director Dr. Robert Kadlec and Anthony Fauci. Together this group – a part of what journalist Brian Berletic has called the Pandemic Industrial Complex- has been engaged in private contracts with military bioweapons projects and virus hunting in the wild for “gain of function” studies for a couple decades. Curiously, there is another character deeply connected with Daszak and the “gain of function” studies sponsored by EcoHealth: David R Franz. Franz serves as EcoHealth’s policy health advisor. According to Baden-Mayer, who has investigated Franz’s history and background, he was formally a commander at Ft. Detrick’s bioweapons laboratory that was working on “gain of function” studies on pathogens for developing bioweapons. He was also involved in the anthrax investigations shortly after 911, and was a colleague of Dr. Bruce Ivin who was accused for the release of encapsulated anthrax aerosol mailed to Congressional legislators shortly after his mysterious death. Recently, Dr. David Martin – founder of the company M-CAM and a fellow at the University of Virginia’s School of Business Management – released his dossier on Anthony Fauci summarizing over two decades of investigations into the very disturbing research and patents filed for “synthetically altering the Coronaviridae (the coronavirus family) for the express purpose of general research, pathogenic enhancement, detection, manipulation and potential therapeutic interventions.” Before the first SARS outbreak in 2003, Baric filed a patent for producing “an infectious, replication defective, coronavirus.” In other words, the University the North Carolina, with federal grants, was amplifying a coronavirus to make it more infectious. Despite the questionable nature of this patent’s and others’ filing status by the CDC, and because patent law forbids patenting any life form, the government and its laboratories sealed under contract, cornered the coronavirus market. In the event of a coronavirus outbreak, only those corporations or institutions that acquired licensure from the NIH would be permitted to work with these bioengineered viruses for developing therapeutic drugs and vaccines. Controversy has arisen over the confusion about the actual number of Covid-19 deaths and whether or not many if not most deaths are du…
