Episode 12: Season 1 Finale - The end of the beginning.

All good things must come to an end... and so does season one of the CBDmythbusters podcast! But, don't cry for us Argentina... we will be back in a few weeks with season two, "Revenge of the Myth." #dadjokes

Seriously, we have had so much fun recording the first season of the CBDmythbusters podcast!! Starting a podcast just because you want to share some knowledge gained and entertain along the way without the desire to "get rich" or "hustle" is really refreshing. Nick and Garrick just want to provide you with reliable, truthful and correct information about the CBD and hemp space while hopefully making you laugh a little along the way. During this episode your hosts take a look back at some of the episodes and moments that make up this initial season of the CBDmythbusters podcast. 

This podcast is not the most polished one that you can listen to... and that is exactly the way we like it. We want this podcast to be relatable, truthful, authentic and entertaining. We make mistakes, stumble over words sometimes, go off topic and cough or sneeze... and we leave them in. This is real life... real life is not polished and edited to be perfect. We are certainly NOT perfect... so, why would we pretend to be? Our hope is that we are able to provide you with the answers and information you are seeking and also put a smile on your face from time to time. Afterall, what is the point of all of this thing called life if we never laugh? 

We love what we do, but none of this is possible without you, our loyal listener! So... thank you. Thank you for your support, your emails, your reviews and your listenership. We appreciate you. This is not lip service either... we really do appreciate you! The support that you have shown to this project as well as our sponsor, Mellow Mammals (www.mellowmammals.com) is quite humbling.

As always, if you have any questions, comments or concerns about this podcast, please reach out to us!

Episode 9 - When to start pets on CBD

Episode 9 - When to start pets on CBD

Our pets are more than just some animals that live in our house... they are a part of our family. We want the best for them, just like we do for ourselves and our loved ones. On today's episode of the CBDmythbusters podcast, we discuss CBD use for pets. When is the right time to give your pet CBD? How do you know when to try CBD for your pet? Will it work for your pet? How would you know if CBD helps or doesn't help your pet? How do you administer CBD to your pet?

CBD use for animals is a complex topic and today we give just a bit of an overview on the subject. As to be expected, there are a few rabbit holes and detours into our personal lives as well... so, that should be comforting to our loyal listeners. 

So, if you are interested in learning a little bit about using CBD for your pet, give this a listen. Garrick Cline is the owner of Mellow Mammals, a CBD pet brand and also a pet parent himself. He has studied CBD use for pets for over four years and shares some of this learned knowledge on today's episode. It is essential when thinking about using CBD for your pet that you really look into the company or brand that you are thinking of using.

Episode 8 - An interview with Mellow Mammals Client... Karla

Episode 8 - An interview with Mellow Mammals Client... Karla

On today's episode, Nick and Garrick interview a very special client of Mellow Mammals, Karla. Karla was kind enough to agree to share her personal experience with you and us when it comes to using CBD with her boxers. We apologize for some of the sound quality, as we were recording this off of a cell phone due to some restrictions at the time of recording.

However, we are very appreciative of her candor, time and honesty during this interview. So... sit back and relax while we learn of the first-hand account from a CBD user that uses it for her dogs. 

We are the CBDmythbusters and not the Mellow Mammals podcast... but, we offer these little glimpses into the life of a one-man CBD brand that is trying to claw, scrape and fight their way into becoming a well known CBD pet brand so that you may understand more about the life of such an adventure. Our hope is that we can inspire you to follow your dream, even if it is hard... their is little time... and not a lot of money. Keep pushing little campers! 

The world has enough bad in it... let's be the good!

As always, please continue to reach out to us via email: cbdmythbusters@gmail.com with your questions, comments and thoughts. We love hearing from you guys and love even more the stories of your adventures! With much appreciation, THANK YOU!

Episode 7 - The History of Hemp - Part 2: American Hemp History

Episode 7 - The History of Hemp - Part 2: American Hemp History

The history of Hemp on this planet is vast and extremely interesting! In today's episode, we attempt to learn you a little about the "love/hate" relationship America has had with the hemp plant. From the foundation of this great Nation, hemp had proven itself invaluable for day to day living. In fact, our forefathers grew it, used it and some made their money from it. In fact, the king of England made it a requirement for settlers to send hemp back to England as a tax! Hemp helped make this country what it is now... but, this valuable resources rise to fame would come to an abrupt halt in the late 1930's.

After the passage of the Marijuana tax act in 1937, the love relationship with hemp in America is a bit rocky. 

The government made hemp illegal until they needed it again, that is...

Government: Hemp is illegal!

World War II: You sure about that??

Government: Ummm... crap. We need it for the war. Hemp is legal again!

Farmers: Yippie!!!

World War II: All done with my nonsense...

Government: Hemp is ILLEGAL!!!!

Farmers: Are you kidding me?!?!

We talk about all of this and more... you know, rabbit holes, conspiracy theories, personal medical procedures and the occasional discussion regarding the actual topic. Just what you have come to expect from us... Strap in and hang on as we travel through the American History... Hemp.

 CBD Mythbusters Minisode 7.5 - History of 420... Brah.

CBD Mythbusters Minisode 7.5 - History of 420... Brah.

Calling this ridiculousness a minisode simply does not do it justice. Our minisode's are typically 5-10 minutes in length... but, today's "minisode" is a full 33 minutes of crazy fun! You may need to fasten your seatbelt for the many detours, rabbit holes, bad impressions and general silliness that is this bonus episode we call a "minisode."

Today we discuss the history of 420, the official... "unofficial" stoner's day. 

How did April 20th become known worldwide as the day of cannabis culture? What other holidays are celebrated on April 20th? There are actually more than a few holidays that are officially recognized and "celebrated" on April 20th and they... ironically, are kind of associated with cannabis culture in a Scooby and Shaggy kind of way.

So... our little campers, close down the 'ole google machine and lend us your ears as we walk you through the rich backstory of 420, pineapple upside down cake, how lima beans get no respect and much more! 

We had so much fun recording this episode and we hope you will have some fun listening to it. Take a minute to let us know how you plan to celebrate 420 by dropping us an email at: cbdmythbusters@gmail.com You can also contact us there for any other reason... ask us a question, correct something we said, suggest a CBD myth for us to take on or just say hi.

Episode 6 - The History of Hemp - Part 1: A World Tour

Episode 6 - The History of Hemp - Part 1: A World Tour

CBD has caused an explosion of exposure to the hemp plant in recent years... but, just how long have we interacted with it on this planet? 

How long has hemp been around?

When was the first recorded use of the hemp plant?

What have past generations used the hemp plant for?

Can the hemp plant be used for more than CBD?

Was hemp always prohibited and shunned?

Where was the hemp plant first discovered?

These and many other burning hemp questions are answered during this episode of the CBDmythbusters podcast. So, listen along as your faithful hosts, Garrick Cline and Nick Buccieri learn you a little about the history of hemp. ("Learn you a little" is an old Missouri phrase.)

In this episode we cover quite a bit of ground... and may veer down a rabbit hole or two along the way. I know, shocking! Right?!? In fact, so much ground is covered that we had to split the episode into two parts! So.. buckle up little campers and enjoy the ride through a rich and exciting history of one of the oldest plants the world knows... along the way, you will meet royalty, innovators, villians and everyday folk enjoying the many ways to use hemp to better enrich our lives. You may also be entertained a little along the way! 

This marks the episode that Garrick finally starts to relax, speaks INTO the microphone so he can be heard and both personalities start to shine. This is a fun one folks! Hope you enjoy!!

CBD Mythbusters Minisode 5.5 - The forgetful father

CBD Mythbusters Minisode 5.5 - The forgetful father

Have you ever make a mistake?.... Like forgetting your child's name? It happens, and it did on our last episode when one of our hosts, Garrick Cline mentioned all of his children by name except for one! 

DA-DA-DUUUUMMMM!!! (Que: woman screaming, scary music and other ominous sounds...)

This is what is so weird about podcasting... it's recorded. When we're just conversing in our natural habitats, something can be said (or not said) and it floats off into the ether... unless you or your conversation partner(s) remember said or not said quip, word or phrase... it's just gone and forgotten about. The conversation moves on without a second thought.

However, when you record said ridiculousness, it lives forever and is dissected, discussed and scrutinized for the entirety of existence!! 

Well, that may be a slight exaggeration, but that's how it feels when you realize that in the middle of conversation you never mentioned a child by name... except you realize that AFTER the episode was recorded and you cannot change it.

So... enter this minisode which we should have titled, "Confessions of a crazy father." 

Listen if you dare... (DA DA DUUUMMMMM!!)

Listen in and you will meet your hosts, Nick Buccieri and Garrick Cline as they introduce the idea of the CBD MythBusters podcast, discuss a little about CBD, and generally chitchat. We hope to educate and entertain you while we help you navigate the wild-west world of the CBD landscape.
