Dr Rocco discusses CBD and MMJ as it relates to medical indications and potential benefit from this alternative therapy with firefighter Gary Roberts, host of Good Dudes Grow Podcast. Episodes are available to listen from 2021 and 2022.
Gary Roberts started his Podcast in 2020. This is his introduction and reason he started the Good Dudes Grow Podcast: “I lost my daughter and father to opiates. I personally know close to 10 firefighters in the past 5 years that have committed suicide. I deal with death, smell death, and see death every 3rd day for the past 16 years. I have turned my trauma personally and professionally into a vision, passion, and mission. I started with a CBD company to help first responders and advocate for their access to cannabis to save their lives. I am now building a medical center in Costa Rica to do clinical trials and train professionals in the mental health industry on the benefits of psychedelics and how to properly use them in their practice. Listen to my story and the stories of celebrities, athletes, and others who use plant base medicine to fight the demons in their life.”
Cannabis can be a natural healer to your body and mind, though many would oppose it. Dr. Thomas Rocco, an accomplished medical practitioner, is currently the Medical Director of a Medical Marijuana Evaluation Center, a medical director for hospice in the local area, and many more. Dr. Rocco says, “I honestly knew nothing about Cannabis at all, and there was no real curriculum for medical marijuana at medical schools.” He got into the practice, much to his surprise, and found miracles occurring. Eleven years have passed since he got initiated into this, and he has always enjoyed dealing with patients, answering their queries, and opening up to new learning scopes every day.
Cannabis has been stigmatized for ages on different grounds, and the “stigma is still there.” People need to educate themselves on this to break the stigma. Dr. Rocco has started his CBD website, educating people about the uses of cannabis and its dosage and propagating awareness. He has taken a stand to contribute to the well-being of people as he believes medical marijuana is so much better than a lot of their “prescription drugs.”
Dr. Rocco admits, “I truly believe that the CBD is the medical part of it, THC is two, but it’s that hybrid of it that gives you the best medical effects.” In this episode of Good Dudes Grow, Gary and Dr. Rocco dig into various misconceptions of CBD and medical marijuana, its future, and benefits, how they can be a natural cure to multiple health issues, and primarily educate people on dosage and purchase of the product. Tune in for an enlightening episode to take holistic care of life and lead a life full of zest.
