There’s a huge gap in people’s understanding of cannabis. Most patients want to know why it’s illegal, while most doctors want to know why they didn’t learn about it in medical school. So says Dr. Paloma Lehfeldt, Medical Science and Patient Liaison for Vireo Health.
Vireo Health is a physician-led company, now in ten states and Puerto Rico, that works very hard to educate patients and physicians. For that very purpose, They have just launched a new cannabis brand called 1937, named for the year that cannabis prohibition started in America. Now available in Penna and Maryland, 1937 features historic cannabis strains and gives an opportunity to learn more about the history of cannabis.
In this episode, we talk about that new brand and the long history of cannabis as medicine, including prohibition and the science that is finally leading us out of these dark ages and into the full acceptance of the healing power of this plant.
