Episode 66 - Everything you need to know about CBD

This week, we have two special guests: Brendan Ruh is the founder of Santa Cruz Medicinals. While attending UC Santa Cruz he was assigned a project to research CBD and summarize the medical literature on CBD. After reading countless PubMed studies he realized that CBD is amazing when used in the proper dosages...which most brands simply do not offer. He began sending samples of other CBD brands to cannabinoid testing labs in California and realized that the overall milligram content on most products was far too low. Furthermore the price of the few products that did have sufficient milligrams of CBD was insanely high. With that info in hand, he started Santa Cruz Medicinals to offer Potent Lab-Tested CBD products to consumers. Cutting out the middleman and going direct to consumer to offer the best prices in the industry. Brendan realized there was no need to add sugar and other harmful compounds to the CBD products so their line of products is Keto, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free, and always Lab Tested. Healthy fats mixed with potent doses of cannabinoids! Brandon Allen is a Professionally Trained Chef and the first ever High Times Top Cannabis Chef, specializing in Paleo Ketogenic Cuisine. As a Certified Interpener, which is best described as the Sommelier of Cannabis, he is able to determine Cannabis Flower Quality and Effects based on visual and aromatic inspection. Fascinated by The Endocannabinoid System, Brandon continuously researches the science and history of Cannabis in order to educate the masses on the amazing medicinal properties of Cannabis Phytochemicals. After experiencing a monumental lifestyle transformation and being reintroduced to Cannabis as a medicine, he discovered the amazing parallels of Cannabinoid Supplementation and Nutritional Ketosis and has determined a theory he feels will help change the lives of countless people. We are excited to dive right into this topic so welcome to the show, Chef Brandon Allen.

David is a 32 year old a father of two beautiful children, Whitlea (6) and Wyatt (3) and has been married for 9 years to his wife Nikki. He’s currently serving on Active Duty in the United States Air Force. He’s been practicing a Ketogenic Lifestyle for the past two years and most recently switched over to a more Carnivore approach in the past 7 months. The reason David started Keto in the first place was to honestly just try another diet. What he did not know is that it would later help with the eating disorders that he has struggled with for the past 10 years or so. He’s recently just shared his story on why he started Keto and it’s healing effects in his life and with his eating disorders. David still has his issues with eating and body dysmorphia but each and everyday he tries to take steps to improve and enjoy this continued journey of healing. I want to add something personal about David that describes him perfectly—David is an encourager. Positive leaders are great encouragers and it's something the world needs more of. With so many people telling us we can't succeed, we need to hear people telling us we can. David is a natural born leader and someone I admire for how well he promotes others successes and supports so many people in this community. We are pumped to have him on, so please welcome, David Webb!
