Biolitics Studio Sessions Episode 1: Medical Cannabis ft. Dispensary 33 & New Age Care Medical Dispensary

Let me tell you a story about a four year old child with Glioblastoma (brain cancer). He had a 66mm tumor in his brain a.k.a. a death sentence. He has become a patient at Chicago’s First Medical Marijuana Dispensary, Dispensary 33He has been taking RSO (Rick Simpson Oil) which is a concentrated cannabis extract which has been shown to have in-vitro and in-vivo efficacy in treating cancer. I’m grateful to report that lately, the little guy’s tumor has been shrinkingAs a scientist, I must clearly state that we cannot make the claim “Cannabis cures cancer” until we understand the mechanism behind this phenomenon and attempt to recreate these effects in dozens of clinically controlled double-blind randomized trials (magic words). However, stories like this have been popping up everywhere around the globe! From PTSD and Depression, to Epilepsy, Chronic Pain, and in some miraculous cases, even Cancer, Cannabis has shown remarkable efficacy in treating and even curing disease.

It’s time to have a scientific and intellectual discussion about Medical Cannabis.

As such, I’m proud to present to you the pilot episode of Biolitics Studio Sessions ft. Dispensary 33 and New Age Care Medical Dispensary in Illinois.

What are Biolitics #StudioSessions?

The Science Behind Medical Cannabis

This was truly a fantastic and fun recording session and I have to give many thanks to my wonderful and intelligent guests for sharing with knowledge with me as well as all of you. This episode examines Medical Cannabis in a whole new light. One of scientific discovery and ethical deliberation and how it relates to the Chicago Medical Cannabis community. Learn about the infinite permutations of the different cannabinoid and terpene profiles of the countless different strains of the Cannabis Sativa plant and how their varying levels, also called the “Entourage Effect”, is related to their versatile range of therapeutic benefits. I personally mention a great quote by Cresco Labs on the show in regards toMedical Cannabis in Chicago Pilot Program Biolitics Studio Session recording with Dispensary 33 and New Age Care Medical Dispensary at Sonic Palace Music this effect. Labs such as their are popping up all over the place and providing full, detailed composition of the strains they test. This has revolutionized the Cannabis industry by being able to provide caregivers and patients information on how and why different strains of medical cannabis affect us all differently and how to use this information to tailor a patient specific cannabis therapy protocol to treat their conditions. For instance, Richard (our own medical cannabis textbook) points out that it’s actually the CBN that causes that sedation and “couch lock” effect that cannabis in infamous for. CBN is active in very low doses, so to combat that sedation, a strain with no CBN, low CBD and high THC can be utilized for daytime use as it will not only prevent fatigue but will also feel uplifting and euphoric. Such strains are commonly called “Sativa” strains.

However, as you peruse through the episode, you will find that the older nomenclature that classifies strains as either “indica” or “sativa” is considered outdated now. This is especially due to the large amount of hybrid strains that have surfaced. The old rules for what is considered a “sativa” or an “indica” strain no longer apply to all strains equally.

From ethics and legislation to science and healthcare, this interview is sure to answer many of your medical cannabis related questions. Hopefully, it will lead you to ask even more questions and keep digging for the truth. Scientists are taught to be skeptical and rigorously test something before they consider it evidence. Nothing is taken at face value. These are rules we all should live by!

Educate. Empower. Evolve.

Thank you all so much for listening to this pilot episode of Biolitics Studio Sessions! Stay tuned for our official podcast on Medical Cannabis debuting shortly!

    In 2004, when I was 67 years old, my doctor noticed that my PSA (prostate-specific antigen) score, which can sometimes be an indicator of prostate cancer, was rising a little faster than normal. He referred me to a urologist, who also checked my PSA. Six weeks later, he checked it again, and it was continuing to increase steadily. A biopsy showed two of 12 samples positive for cancer.The urologist I saw was a surgeon, and surgery was his first suggestion upon diagnosing me with stage II prostate cancer. The other option he mentioned was a permanent implant of radiation seeds. Neither option appealed to me. He noted that the cancer was slow growing, so there was no hurry for me to decide right away. So I decided to do my research and i found out about how Rick Simpson hemp oil has help many people, so i contacted them through their mail (, the oil was sent to me andafter using 3 months, i went back to check my PSA and found out it was gone.
