“Soul D’licious Infused” Episode #31 – John Hudak (Part 2) and CBD & Epilepsy

Soul D'Licious Infused

Benjamin Bey of Soul D’licious Seasonings and co-host Stephanie Magurno of THC Production, LLC finish up their interview with John Hudak. Then, Bea Martinez talks about the relationship that CBD use plays in helping epilepsy sufferers. Finally, Stephanie talks about dabbing.Cannabis Science – CBD & EpilepsyToday in our science segment, we talk about CBD’s effect on Epilepsy. According to the Epilepsy Foundation, Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder and it affects people of all ages. Abnormal electrical activities in the brain result in a sensory disturbance. This disturbance inevitably ends in seizures. It is usually diagnosed after a person has had at least two seizures that were not caused by another known medical condition.Nearly one in three people who suffer from Epilepsy are classified as having drug-resistant Epilepsy. However, CBD use may help! Fortunately, new studies indicate that CBD usage can result in a decrease in seizure frequency. Additionally, there are no adverse effects of using CBD. But that’s not all. CBD use has shown to heal some adverse effects caused by traditional medicines used to treat Epilepsy. Finally, if a patient must continue taking Rx medications, CBD may reduce the dosage or frequency in which such meds are consumed. This is great news for producers of CBD like Experience Premium Cannabis in Las Vegas.Hash It Out! – Interview With John Hudak (Part 2)Over the years, public views of cannabis use have continued to change. At the start of the new millennium, support for cannabis law reform hovered in the low 30% of public approval. Now, nearly 88% of the public say they support some kind of cannabis law reform. In fact, cannabis law reform is one of the most universally accepted movements in the country. Support crosses gender, age, and political party lines. The shift in views on cannabis use and the increase in approval rating continues to grow as more and more states successfully implement policy.However, one of the initial topics which were not addressed was racial injustice related to past failed drug policy. John Hudak believes this was an initial failure. Some states got it better than others, but none have gotten it completely right. On the other hand, John doesn’t recommend throwing the baby out with the bathwater. After all, that’s not how good public policy works… most of the time.Nugs of KnowledgeThis week, we discuss dabbing 101. Ah, dabbing… the flash vaporizing of cannabis concentrates. There are a variety of tools you can use to dab. Frequently, the apparatus used to dab is called a rig. This helps to vaporize cannabis. Wax, rosin, oils, and more are used in dab rigs.Dab rigs have an element called a nail. The nail is heated up with a torch and then a tiny bit of cannabis concentrate is added to the nail. Usually, a very small crumb-sized dab is used in the rig. Upon vaporization, you inhale the smoke. This is not for low-dose users. Dabbing is one of the most efficient ways to consume large concentrations of cannabis in a short amount of time.“Soul D’licious Infused”Listen to “Soul D’licious Infused” on KUNV 95.1 and TuneIn internet radio.

“Soul D’licious Infused” Episode #30 – John Hudak of the Brookings Institute

Soul D'Licious Infused

Ben and Stephanie begin their interview with John Hudak of the Brookings Institute. Then, Bea Martinez talks with us about the relationship between CBD & Type 1 Diabetes. Finally, we discuss topicals and their various application.Cannabis ScienceType 1 Diabetes is the version that occurs naturally in the body. It has nothing to do with a poor diet or an unhealthy lifestyle. However, a poor diet and unhealthy lifestyle may exacerbate the symptoms.THC has shown that it can modulate and regulate TH1 and TH2. When out of whack, TH1 and TH2 can encourage diabetes to have worse symptoms. TH1 may be in excess and TH2 is lacking. CBD treated mice showed an improvement in diabetic symptoms when using CBD. In fact, CBD showed it enriched the TH2 environment in the system. But just how much does CBD help treat Diabetes?It turns out that 86% of mice studied developed Type 1 diabetes in an average of 14 weeks. However, CBD-treated mice only developed diabetes at a rate of 30%. Additionally, it took upwards of 20 weeks (or 6 weeks longer) for symptoms to occur.Hash It Out!Today we’re talking with John Hudak; an author and policy analyst with the Brookings Institute. John Hudak is deputy director of the Center for Effective Public Management and a senior fellow in Governance Studies. His research focuses on campaigns & elections, legislative-executive interaction, and cannabis policy.John’s 2016 book, Marijuana: A Short History, offers a unique, up-to-date profile of how cannabis emerged from the shadows of counterculture and became a mainstream public policy issue. In it, he describes why attitudes and policy have changed. Additionally, John talks about what those changes mean for cannabis and its future place in society. Cannabis captured John Hudak’s imagination later in life.In the 1930s, the head of the new Bureau of Narcotics, Harry Anslinger, began a crusade against cannabis. A teetotaler, prior head of the Bureau of Prohibition, and avowed racist, Anslinger determined that it would behoove him and the country if he could stop the moral decay of society. His ability to divide the country by race was something he was quite fond of. Despite cannabis being used and recognized as a medicine, not many people know much about it. Additionally, not much was known about it or its existence.According to John Hudak, Anslinger saw cannabis as a scapegoat for crime, corruption, and the fear of non-white members of society. In fact, he was quite aggressive in his crusade against cannabis. And his efforts would completely shift the public view of the plant. His work would lead to the drug war and to many decades of poor public policy which would destroy a number of lives.Later, President Nixon would take up his torch and further his cause. Nixon then convinced the country that drugs would destroy the stability of the nation. He used cannabis as a tool to get rid of anyone who defied or disagreed with him. This included Jews, psychiatrists, hippies, and more. Now, the U.S. government had a legal tool to silence and imprison anyone that spoke out against them.Nugs of KnowledgeThis week, we discuss topicals. How do they work and do they get you high? Topicals are products you put on your skin. They include sprays, oils, ointments, balms, lotions, transdermal patches, and more. According to chemist Noel Palmer, THC will not permeate into the skin and into the bloodstream. Therefore, the majority of cannabis topicals will not get you high. However, cannabis transdermal patches are formulated to permeate the skin.

John Hudak, “Marijuana: A Short History” (Brookings, 2016)

New Books in Law

John Hudak‘s book Marijuana: A Short History (Brookings Institutions Press, 2016) is an accessible and informative dive into marijuana on a number of levels and from a variety of perspectives. Hudak unpacks and explains the historical place of marijuana in the United States, and the way that marijuana is situated within the criminal justice system, and how it is understood within our cultural vernacular and moral perspectives of what is right and wrong, legal and illegal. As marijuana now seems to be on a journey towards decriminalization or legalization in a number of states in the U.S., Hudak explores the way in which marijuana became an illegal substance, and how it is connected to the demonization of others–most specifically Mexicans, Mexican-Americans, African-Americans, and the American counter-culture of earlier decades. The history of marijuana is fascinating because it highlights the evolution of various forms of regulation in the United States; and, as marijuanas classification in some states is changing (in terms of the legal access to medical marijuana or the legalization of recreational marijuana), Hudak examines the constraints within the regulatory system that make those changes more difficult to execute. This text weaves together a variety of analytical perspectives, from political science, public policy, public administration, cultural studies, sociology, and criminal justice, in exploring marijuana.
