Reefer MEDness - The Blog

When we started ReeferMEDness - The Podcast, our goal was to learn from expert guests.  We now have a library of "source" information from: researchers, practitioners, people using cannabis, resalers, and growers. Generally speaking, we talk with passionate people who know something about cannabis.  These discussions are captured in the published episodes found within this website.  

The Blog before you presents learning, formed from these interactions; opinions formed from information shared by our guests.  Please feel free to agree or disagree.  Please share your opinion. At the very bottom of each page is a "Contact Us" link.  We are also on Social Media with links above. We would love to expand these discussions by hearing your voice.
