Healing Insomnia, Reducing Pain, And Other Benefits Of Medicinal Cannabis

Episode 626 1h 5m


There are actually many proven benefits of medical marijuana when it’s used the right way. In fact, cannabis may be one of the oldest documented herbal medicines on earth. And the body has a remarkable built-in system of endocannabinoid receptors that pair with it to reduce pain, improve sleep, increase mood, reduce nausea, and much more.

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Misha Kogan, Dr. Josh Axe, and Jamie Wheal about the many benefits of cannabis, and we take a look at how the body’s built-in endocannabinoid healing system works in tandem with this plant medicine. Dr. Mikhail “Misha” Kogan is the medical director of the George Washington University Center for Integrative Medicine and associate professor of medicine at the George Washington University School of Medicine. Dr. Kogan has recommended medical marijuana to thousands of patients and is a frequent lecturer on medical cannabis to professional audiences across the nation.

He is also the cofounder of Ancient Nutrition, which provides protein powders, holistic supplements, vitamins, essential oils, and more to the modern world.
