In this episode of Healthspan Academy, Dr. Nick Jackowetz discusses his research and expertise with the medicinal and recreational use of Cannabis. We chat about the myths and stigma behind it, its medical benefits, and its future in the beverage industry. He also talked about teaming up on a project with Seth Rogan.
