Today on the show we welcome chef Jordan Wagman to talk about the work he is doing to incorporate cannabis into his amazing cooking as a way of advocating for its health benefits. Jordan starts by talking about how his early relationship with cannabis began when he was diagnosed with psoriasis and used it as a way of easing the pain. Years later, after he had become a chef, he made drastic changes to his diet involving the inclusion of cannabis along with the exclusion of refined sugar, and thereafter experienced tremendous health benefits.
Now Jordan is on a mission to help others have a similar experience to him and we spend our discussion asking him about how he cooks with cannabis, his favorite recipes, and how the average person can start to build their own amateur cannabis kitchen. Jordan talks about his method for making delicious cannabis-infused emulsifications and the value of using a cannabinoid that you purchased as far as incorporating the right dose. He speaks about his famous fruit leather recipe and why it makes such a good on-the-go snack. He also shares top tips for the best kinds of appliances and methods to use at home so that you can make delicious food using cannabis as an ingredient.
After our enlightening conversation with Jordan, we welcome William Dolphin onto the show for our ASA segment, where we discuss the journey to understanding the relationship between cannabis and mental health. William Describes a discrepancy between what doctors say about cannabis and the way it is used, shares case studies that disrupt the perception that it is dangerous for mental health, and speaks about the challenge posed by doctors who are doing their research from within a ‘harm paradigm’. For all this and more, tune in with us today!
