How much do we believe in our medicines? – podcast

Are holistic primary care practitioners recommending cannabis and CBD? Can an optimized immune system help defend against viral infections like COVID-19? We're just getting started.

In the wake of the postponement of Expo West 2020—let’s call it Expo Rest—we still met in Southern California with movers and shakers in the field. Informa senior editor Todd Runestad sat down with Erik Goldman, editor-in-chief of Holistic Primary Care, a media company that connects integrative practitioners to the supplements market and holistic healing practices. Listen in on this provocative conversation where the two discuss:

  • What health conditions are practitioners recommending cannabis—medical and recreational marijuana as well as hemp CBD.
  • “Health is more than the absence of disease” and how the medical community is shifting to deal with post-modern health conditions.
  • With the biggest trade show for the healthy lifestyle industry cancelled, it begs the question, How much do we believe in our medicines?
