Ian Jessop and Corrie Yelland. – Ian: Welcome to another episode
of cannabis health radio I’m Ian Jessop – Corrie: And I’m Corrie yelland. – Ian: Our guest today started using
cannabis for a severe arthritic spine. It not only helped with that
but other ailments he experienced as well. And joining us from
Ontario Canada is David Pirie. David good to talk to you,
thanks very much for doing this. – David: Afternoon guys,
good to be here. Ian: Tell us about your arthritic spine and the problems you were experiencing. – David: Well I was just a progression of all,
of Aging in middle age around 45 and 50. Well I was just a bothering me but it was it wasn’t
serious at the time it just progressed by by the time I reached 60 I was really
quite uh you know I was in handicapped I still walking I had a cane I left it in
the car all the time whenever I took it out I lost it I didn’t I use the cane at
the time more for insurance but it became so bad but I had a history of
drug abuse in the past we would don’t need to waste time on that but I knew I
did not want to take medications I didn’t want to take pharmaceuticals that
I had been smoking cannabis since the 60s and that was I wasn’t even aware
that it was killing my pain so much it just made me feel better and relaxed so
then in when I was forced to retire I was actually more days couldn’t stand
erect then I could that’s when I started to try and find out what I could do and
lo and behold I ran into Phoenix tears if I wasn’t even looking for cannabis I
ran into it by my explorations on the internet just for curiosity’s sake I
watched it I said this can’t be real but called my Betty I called my buddy and he
said this can’t be real we have to do some research three days later
we had just convinced ourselves that this stuff was accurate we’re extension
such a person you can’t lie he is no way he’s lying he’s not imagining that stuff
and we proved it so so David’s margin trumpet that when you’re referring to
Phoenix tears are you talking about the video run from the Cure that’s right no
cure thank you every extension to me was a world here hero he still is and
there’s a few huge leaders studied the science behind it dr. Romelu Mead my
benefits just kept coming I wasn’t trying to fight any deadly disease but i
found out that Rick was saying why don’t you vaporize for lung cancer I said lung
cancer why wouldn’t it help my COPD later on if I note he encourages people
to use I was on two inhalers I had a 30-percent lung capacity I could not
take showers are the humidity and the temperature would just I could not
breathe in the shower for more than three minutes six weeks after I start
vaporizing I thought I was able to empty my hot water tank the then the silly
thing started happening big moles ugly moles that were not dangerous they
started falling off in my body I lost what’s called liver spots off my hands
and face that’s just aging and then eventually I found out that I had
inactive totally inactive hepatitis C my metabolism was tested my ph has been
constantly now because of diet and that’s the crucial thing if people think
that cannabis is going to help them they must always always realize that they’re
there because of toxins then stresses the worst when our food intake has to be
correct good and we don’t go sensible food then
we’re going to kiss kill ourselves any website David did you only vape or did
you take the cannabis oil as well no no we made cannabis oil in the fall of two
thousand and ten from the bucket of old two-year-old shakes garbage bag full in
a guy’s basement will my buddy at the time we just got together and and brewed
this up and we had pretty bad qualities I really was speculate all payson but
once we realized how simple filtration can be I’m in 2011 the quality of our
process went up David just for the benefit of maybe some people who are
listening and going shake what she can you blame that yes I’m sorry of my buddy
was a associated while purchasing from an underground grow operation and that
operation trims waste leaves what they don’t want to sell it five or fifteen
dollars you know you want a nice tight bud so you trim off all this nice and
whatever handling is it falls apart and that’s called trim and shake both terms
are pretty much interchangeable and it they contain a lot of active ingredients
not only THC but they were very often high in cbn and of course all other
cannabinoids that are in the plant some quite a bit of good Turkey clev anoints
but the the concentrate that you can make is adequate if you don’t have great
big butts and it’s a look often very easy to pick it up or free you tell me a
hug tell me about your first batch and you and your friend making it were you
afraid you’d blow yourself up we played we had a fire in the kitchen you were
making it in the kitchen well we yeah whoa flaming door the doors open
and the fans were on it was a rainy day in October what were we to do no he
didn’t catch fire because of an explosion caught fire because I dropped
the pan no yeah but we got it out we didn’t lose too much it’s a little mess
on the floor it’s funny in retrospect no it isn’t area to my buddy had another
fire later on on his own but it was again the same thing just in there with
the with the concentrate boiling down it was after the alcohol filtration
reduction and it was down to the last half hour of processing so it was the
oil that caught fire not the alcohol did you find it difficult to make no because
you just go over the process that Rick Simpson presents to you and go over it
three four times look at it and say here’s this is what we want to do is ok
let’s do it and you do it if you’re going to be afraid of doing it ask
yourself if you’re afraid of dying yeah that’s where I was out I tell you you
know I didn’t set out with the idea that I was going to make my own but when it
became apparent that that’s the only way I was going to get it that’s what I did
David what did you use for extracting alcohol wise I’m sorry you broke up the
first part of the question what did you use when you made your first batch what
did you use to extract it with we use isopropyl alcohol which we were
fortunate after full source it is really pretty simple but I now have a buddy
that uses map that he’s just now decided he’s going to change and use isopropyl
from now on that the panic and the people who falsely in my mind call
isopropyl as a poison it’s a nonsensical paranoia and it’s only admit the
artificial fear created is to keep the industry out of people’s
homes and out of people’s gardens and other people’s garages and off of
people’s patios they want to control the product of the product themselves so
they tell you I sure was poison all right so far David when you made your
first badge and you had the oil and you took it what how did it feel ah pretty
neutral I I’m you know I had been playing with cannabis recreationally for
years and you know it was late at night that I take my heavier doses and I I
didn’t have any discomfort with it any problems as far as being a too stoned to
affected because I was in pain and it was nice i was living pain-free for a
couple of years totally pain-free totally pain-free using cannabis oil yes
well that’s remarkable okay unfortunately in 2013 I had a car crash
that set me back worse and I haven’t been much pain free since but I live I
have a couple other problems which cannabis is helping me with to one of
them is my gun I have been envisioned inflicting a lot of stress on myself
over the years trying to help people who died and it hasn’t been good hasn’t been
kind to me so I now realize after the Bund about a year and a half ago I
become my back my uphill climb to sanity again but didn’t know I understand a lot
of people have a lot of difficulty sometimes starting on a cannabis regimen
and for those it’s very very very very simple you just make a dilution of about
maybe three to six milligrams per capsule and it’s it’s just too simple
buy some coke oil or any other good nutritious oil
like olive oil I think probably the best advice might I sorry certain I say
probably the best advice we heard was from a young woman we interviewed in
Florida who had lung cancer and she said don’t worry about the strange don’t
worry about the quantity just take the damn oil hahahaha is so so basic and it
is so so true once you see that you are amenable that cannabis is helping you
and you wish to explore other things that are available strains and so on I
think it’s wonderful to change up to alter your different oils whatever you
put in if you put multiple plants as a grower a processor if you make an oil
from seven plants you’re better off than if you make it from two strains or one
strain but that message is so accurate nevermind what it is you like the guy
says you got to get what I got you got to get it get it in yet again yes yeah
that’s right and that’s that simple now after you want a pardon no just you to
say that when Corey was given four to six months to live she didn’t care what
strains it was no oh get the damn stuff in your body and see what it and start
to correct the the ailment that you’re dealing with i I’ve had the Karma push
me or whatever to growing CBD that should not be someone’s immediate goal
you may need always help yourself five if we’re going to be getting into what I
try to get into with CBD at they added to a cannabis regimen is just a very
valuable addition but it is certainly not anything to worry about until you’ve
proven that what we’re going forward with cannabis that’s all you gave
one of the things that we’ve talked about in this program with the couple of
people is COPD and we’ve interviewed a woman in the United States who had COPD
and she was on her deathbed really and now she uses cannabis oil and is
training to run in a 5k race it was another gentleman who lived in Oklahoma
moved to Colorado he was in rough shape and he also went on cannabis oil and his
COPD is in remission if there is such a thing with COPD but he is in great shape
as a result of taking cannabis oil and you are in a similar circumstance
because you were on two prescriptions for it weren’t you and the COPD how is
it today I’m not healed or cured but I get along every day quite well I can’t
go out in the cold weather because it’s just too too tough for me to inhale I
can’t I can spend my entire summer outdoors at 28 degrees or 82 Fahrenheit
and or higher I guess I can handle the temperatures and the humidity it’s if
I’m to try to get through active in the garden during the summer that I gotta
sit down but i am not complaining about my COPD i cough I loosens up phlegm in
the morning it you know I I’m in good shape as far as but i’m not i bought a
bicycle three years ago I ride my bicycle every decent day one is not too
windy my balance is a little iffy so I don’t get blown over on the bike you
know but I can’t walk because my lower back is sore that’s all I do my exercise
I play in the garden but i’m not running track no i’m not going to train for
weightlifting or marathon but I’m 73 then I’m happy
well weightlifting in a marathon that’s worth shooting for David I know it is if
I was if I was 53 I might be able but it is beyond my imagination that I got what
I got and I got an awful lot from cannabis you mentioned earlier that one
of the other things that did is it eliminated the moles on your body tell
us about that I guess not too much I can say I I just had normal amount that i
think is normal but they were thick like there’s a name for them i don’t know
what it is but the doctors telling me no that’s been nine but don’t worry about
those if they get sore that it let us know and that’s all everybody says about
moles and you know they just started getting soft during lower and lessen
basically the the spots they were occupying are still there but they’re
not these eighth of an inch thick moles any longer they’re not Bernie or itchy
or anything they’re very been now the presence of them is non aggravating in
any way whatsoever that’s all you’re just finishing up about of singles what
what effect did the oil have on that well I’m awfully because I had it i’ll
tell you that the pain killing and the while oil goes in so nice and easily and
i just put a cvd oil on my face for the first time today I just had the
lingering awareness of it and it but i was using THC oil and i used my own CBD
butter on it as a carrier make CBD butter for myself if i hadn’t had the
cannabis oil I don’t know what I coulda done my wife had about last summer and
it was horrible to watch and I’m such a wimp and a wood
I might have gone and out and shot myself because I can see for some people
how horrible it must be but I’m i was fortunate enough the oil suppressed
blistering I never had any open sores and that was a good part it was a
horrible nuisance for me but it was not a horrible ordeal and the oil also
helped you with your liver spots your age spots oh that’s years ago he
disappeared yeah that was one of the first side effects that I noticed it
where’s angle I was because well now we’ll go into that’s another meandering
story but oh you can go into it we don’t mind me and ring stories okay well I had
been I had been concerned to vote well I had been blood tests had shown that I
had hepatitis C and then they send me off because I hadn’t you know I just
needed to check up and they were this guy’s terrorizing me look at you you
can’t drink alcohol anymore I was a boozehound you can’t drink alcohol
anymore not one glass no nothing look at you you got liver spots already you’re
going to die now if you want to look up liver spots it has nothing to do with
your liver they’re just like purple spots on your hands they’re aging signs
so that’s one thing made me turn so against a low pass Corey no not yet he
and I are sitting here looking at her if you want hmm i think the medical
community has driven me deep more deeply into cannabis use did they just don’t
make any sense me there’s no logic David how much cannabis do you take a day hmm
I’ve been on a lot of variation of ups and downs but I try to keep it around
200 milligrams a day 200 milligrams and I would write what I would like to be
doing now I I begun it and I make now I make micro
dosing micra dosing for maintenance I i think is it helps stabilize a lot if I
take six or eight capsules a day that would have 25 to 50 milligrams oh I
would be well off I can mix a blend for myself fifty percent CBD fifty percent
THC and I can take as much is required to kill my pain without being too snow
because the CBD ameliorates but what happens in my blending I feel I have no
knowledge but i feel that CBD not only ameliorates THC it amplifies it and
multiplies its effect while people say it it stops the high of T said that’s
not what it does CBD takes THD and occupies it in another way people don’t
comprehend the fact that their metabolism and God’s gift this is a
defined plant it is all plants a carrot is divine okay but this is the most of
all the healing plants on the planet we all know this has been in every mother’s
milk for every time we’ve had a human put an infant to her breast she’s be
that child is being fed cannabinoids it says the central core of our immune
system so I don’t know how I got there what would that was a quick meander
knows it was a good way ender and a lot of people don’t realize that mother’s
milk has cannabinoids it well you know this everybody knows that you’ve
grandmother’s knew it they don’t know that cannabinoids are in your mother’s
milk but they know that a wet nurse was better than a bottle of formula you know
natural milk and we’re not supposed to be drinking
two quarts of milk adada another fraud of the agricultural and medical
community but mother’s milk is the core of house an infant become have an immune
system build up that’s why that’s why we have mothers that have milk every mammal
feeds on its mother’s breast David how would you describe your health today on
cannabis and cannabis oil compared to health before cannabis oil in 2008 I
haven’t verbalized this for a long time I had visions of within three to five
years I needed a walker and in five to seven I knew I would would I be buying a
motorized wheelchair or can I build my body up enough to get me around
physically instead of motorized that’s what I felt what occurred for me in 2011
was that I was totally I felt totally liberated freed I went out one hot muggy
spring day and jogged up to the corner and ran home my sister-in-law and my
wife was so not crying this stuff does miracles and my house now is much
improved I thought it would be dead long ago just because I lived an abuse of
life I lived a hard look like I party booze drugs it was I beat myself up
terribly by the time I was 50 then I keep beating myself up because I don’t
live like a monk I try to eat properly and I drink very little red wine every
night now your story reminds me of a friend of mine who I interviewed on this
program when Cory was away in Europe and he was told by his doctor that
because of his rheumatoid arthritis he would be in a wheelchair in two years he
went on the medications was on medications for a month they made him
feel absolutely horrible some days he couldn’t get out of bed he wanted to try
cannabis his doctor refused so he said he fired his doctor went to another
doctor got a prescription and started vaping and today he actually looks
better than he has in years the only pain he has from his arthritis is in one
of his in his ring finger and he is in great shape so it’s just amazing what
this plant can do and it’s criminal I am sure some people would disagree with it
but it’s criminal what some of these prescription drugs do to the human body
and the doctors prescribe them and the doctors want to eliminate symptoms but
they don’t want to cure the disease maybe they don’t know how to cure the
disease whether see that’s the one thing everybody got to realize the word cure
is meant for leather word cure is meant for meat it makes use out of cured
leather yeah and people say tanning that’s curing if you want to cure for
the common cold if you go out and pull anyone over the age of 15 who says yes I
use cannabis when was the last time you ever had a cold or a flu that kept you
in bed not for 10 days when was the last time you had a cold or flu that made you
have to take time off work and stay in bed for a day or two and feel crappy
they’ll all look at you with a blank stare ninety percent of all the potheads
in this country and every country are immune to colds and flus that doesn’t
mean you we’ll never get sick that means you’ll
be able to fight it off in a day or two without what happen to going back to bed
I don’t know how I got in that far off the question but yeah you know there are
no there is no side of medicine that I would encourage anyone to go to now
medical science is not what medical practices that’s the problem medical
science is wonderful but medical science if you know who royal wife is general
reference was he netted rife machine which they all going he also invented
long before the electron microscope came he invented an optical microscope that
will do the work of an electron microscope that’s how we came to develop
his right technology yeah that all that is the president when you look at what
just a lot heavens I can’t have lost his name in my mind in Texas are the man
doing stem cell research yeah you know I know who you mean and his name escapes
me as well i somehow i don’t know we get these vacuums that’s one yeah people
talk about your short-term memory those damn liver spots cattle that yeah David
it’s good to hear that you’re in much better health your arthritic spine is is
getting a lot better your co people is eating a lot better by co-parenting my
daily activities except for the consequences of a car crash that I did
have in 2013 I put a lot of load on me again ya know well keep keep working on
it keep making the oil and taking it and you’ll be fine
but we want to keep our genetics going I do have considerable numbers good good
lines of genetics here but that’s another topic for another day great
