Cannabis Science

Just discovered a new podcast called Cannabis Science dedicated to answering your most salient question about cannabis, it’s uses, preparations, products, and constituents using the most recent and proven scientific data from both industry and academic sources. Join Dr. Ricardo Rivera, a faculty member of the Department of Pharmacology at the University of British Columbia, and Dr. Macarena Cataldo, a chemical engineer and activist based in Vancouver, Canada. This podcast will be a nexus between science and the curious cannabis enthusiast. 

Do you guys listen other podcast about this beautiful subject? We will keep sharing what we listen in this category. We are not here to just sell what we think is the best, but also share and learn together more about it. Forget the marketing hype from bottled nutrient companies, everything on this show is based in science and research.
