One of the reason Reefer MEDness started was becasuse Trevor couldn't understand why medicinal cannabis wasn't in pharmacies. Well, all the barriers aren't down yet but meet Rahim Dhalla. We've talked to Rahim before, but this time we dive into the workings of his pharmacy, Hybrid Pharm. Hybrid Pharm is a regular pharmacy where you can pick up your diabetes meds, get your flu shot and lately they are even doing COVID-19 testing. But Hybrid Pharm is special for many reasons. Not the least of which is, if all the paperwork is in place, you can walk into Hybrid Pharm and pick up your medicinal cannabis. Welcome to the future, as Kirk and Trevor talk with Rahim about how this all works.
Kieley Beaudry has so many facets to her cannabis knowledge, including Co-Founder of Parkland Flower Inc, President of the Alberta Cannabis Micro License Association, and parent of a child with Cystic Fibrosis (who uses cannabis). But Kieley agreed to enlighten Kirk and Trevor on a delicate and often overlooked topic. Kieley talks about cannabis as treatment for sexual dysfunction. Kieley is not a health care professional, but is extremely well read and knowledgeable. Kieley educates Trevor on topicals, suppositories and many other uses of cannabis especially as it pertains to female sexual health. This episode is in no way graphic but it does acknowledge the existence of sex, so if you are listening with people with sensitive ears be aware.
