Episode #69 - A Conversation with Dr. Rebecca Siegel & Bryan Buckley about PTSD During May: Mental Health Awareness Month!
Men On a Mission, Retreat-Regroup-Advance!
Dr. Rebecca Siegel is a clinical psychiatrist and author of the newly published book, The Brain on Cannabis: What You Should Know about Recreational and Medical Marijuana, a comprehensive and myth-busting guide on marijuana use and its effects on the brain. The book also addresses how to effectively talk to young people about recreational marijuana use based on her work as a physician who specializes in the assessment and treatment of anxiety, mood disorders, and ADHD. In the book, Dr. Siegel reviews the full spectrum of marijuana’s benefits and risks and debunks myths surrounding cannabis and explores the promises and risks of its many therapeutic possibilities. She thoughtfully investigates the potential downsides of cannabis, particularly with regards to brain health referencing The Amen Clinics' brain SPECT imaging studies. Siegel opens each chapter with an overview of contradictory marijuana myths (i.e., “The Myth of Harmlessness: Teens won’t be adversely affected by marijuana use / The Myth of Harmfulness: My teen will be irreparably harmed by marijuana use in the short-term and the long-term”), and concludes with her observations as a doctor, as well a conclusion of “What We Know for Sure.” https://rebeccasiegelmd.com/ Bryan Buckley, President and CEO As a Special Operations Team Commander with Marine Raiders, Bryan led multiple teams in deployments to Operation Enduring Freedom-Trans Sahara (Africa), South East Asia, and Operation Enduring Freedom-Afghanistan (Helmand Province).

So in theory, it’s more dangerous for us being back home than it was for us being in combat.”~ Bryan Buckley, Marine RaiderIn this episode, John Malanca interviews Bryan Buckley, combat veteran and founder of the Battle Brothers Foundation and the Helmand Valley Growers Company, to describe the physical and emotional traumas he suffered during the war – and why coming home can be more dangerous for veterans than armed conflict.Chronic pain, PTS, depression, and anxiety are a major issue for U.S. veterans. Sadly, very few receive the help they need and deserve.The veteran suicide rate is 1.5 times as much as the rate for civilians.We believe that medical cannabis is the future of safe and effective treatment for our veterans.

Bryan is a graduate of Villanova University. Awarded Bronze Star Medal with "Combat Distinguishing Device" for Heroic Service Awarded the Purple Heart Medal for wounds received during combat operations About Helmand Valley Growers Company(HVGC)The Helmand Valley Growers Company was founded by United States Special Operations Veterans (Marine Raiders). Since its inception, HVGC has been in discussions with some of the cannabis industry’s top researchers and has developed a veteran based protocol to effectively prove the benefits of medical cannabis.Over time, and through HVGC presentations and seminars, the principles of HVGC realized a recreational brand will be a monetary success and will help fund the ultimate mission of HVGC, providing medical cannabis to the veterans of our United States Military.As a service disabled veteran owned business, HVGC is intimately aware of the daily challenges that veterans face as a result of their time spent on the battlefield. Some of these wounds are not visible to the naked eye.America is facing a wide-scale opioid epidemic that has taken countless lives; not excluded from this crisis, the veteran community has been critically impacted.When the U.S. Military deploys to the combat, roughly 60% of those deployed will be prescribed opioids upon return to the United States, and over half will develop a dependency/addiction.This has caused far too many vets to lose their way, and in an ever-increasing pandemic, take their own lives.HVGC began its outreach into the veteran community by observing first-hand and listening to the suffering of America's veterans. The founders knew right then that the cause was worthy; and that the mission was defined. The next step moved Bryan and the team into researching medical cannabis and speaking with the top experts in the field.As their research progressed, the answer to this crisis became clear: develop alternative medical solutions for those suffering with pain, anxiety, post-traumatic stress, sleep disorders, and most critically, are at significant risk of suicide. The recreational cannabis and branding will be used to assist in accomplishing these goals and ultimately serve as a profit center for HVGC.Medical Cannabis for PTSDIn 2014, a study published in the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs, revealed that patients with PTSD experienced a 75-percent decrease in their symptoms upon using medical cannabis.However, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is mandated to follow federal regulations regarding cannabis. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) classifies cannabis as a Schedule I substance, which makes the drug illegal on a federal level. As a result, the VA does not recommend cannabis as a treatment for veterans.Furthermore, cannabis use is prohibited at all VA medical centers, including facilities located in states where cannabis is legal.Listen to more Causeartist podcasts here.Check out:Partner with us - Learn moreImpactInvestor.io - Discover impact investors from around the world.Podcast Made with TransistorPodcast cover design Made with CanvaBuild amazing web platforms with WebflowPowered by: The Social Impact Jobs board - Learn more---> Check out the Causeartist Partners here.---> Subscribe to the Causeartist Newsletter here.Listen to more Causeartist podcast shows hereFollow Grant on Twitter and LinkedInFollow Causeartist on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram

Cap. Bryan Buckley Discusses the Benefits of Cannabis for PTSD
Captain Bryan Buckley, USMC (Retired) Discusses the Benefits of Cannabis for PTSD and Suicide Prevention via his company Helmand Valley Growers Company and non-profit, Battle Brothers Foundation. I had a chance to speak with Captain Buckley, who is essentially a Bionic Commando at this point with all the injuries he has sustained throughout his military career. We thanks Captain Buckley for his service, his care for his brothers in arms and for taking the time to chat with us about suicide prevention, opioid addiction, survival and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Official Press Release: While the reasons are complex, PTS and chronic pain contribute to the shocking statistic, and cannabis has emerged as a promising treatment. Helmand Valley Growers Company, a veteran-owned and operated cannabis manufacturer is dedicated to improving veterans’ mental health. They commit 100% of their profits to the Battle Brothers Foundation, who researches the benefits of medical cannabis with the penultimate goal of making sure the VA takes note. Given everything that has happened in Afghanistan (and the downtrodden feelings hitting many vets as a result) and suicide awareness week coming up, we'd love to connect you with them to have an open conversation about cannabis and suicide prevention. Some speaking points include: How does medical cannabis and mental health differ from recreational use? What is the advantage of using cannabis to treat PTS and pain as opposed to anti-depressants and opiates? What will it take to get the VA and other medical facilities to really explore medical cannabis for treating mental health?
