Podcast: Episode 72: Martin A. Lee: The Essential Guide to CBD
May 5, 2021
Description: On this episode, Laura Chandler is joined by activist and writer Martin A. Lee, co-founder and director of Project CBD, to talk about his latest book, Reader’s Digest: The Essential Guide to CBD: Everything You Need to Know About What It Helps, Where to Buy It, and How to Take It. Martin explains the history of cannabis, the different ways cannabis works to assist in our own body’s ability to heal, current medical studies, and the myriad of ailments it can help with – everything from cancer, to brain injuries, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, anxiety, addiction, and so much more. There is a lot to understand about CBD and Martin provides a clear map for understanding and navigating its history and usage.
Martin is the author of several books, including Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana – Medical, Recreational and Scientific, which received the American Botanical Council’s James A. Duke Award for Excellence in Botanical Literature. Named by High Times as one of the 100 most influential people in cannabis, he is the 2016 winner of the Emerald Cup’s Lifetime Achievement Award. Lee is also co-founder of the media watch group FAIR (Fairness & Accuracy in Reporting) and the author of Acid Dreams: The Complete Social History of LSD – The CIA, the Sixties and Beyond.

Our featured music today is from Baba Israel and his band Soul Inscribed. We are spotlighting music from the theatrical concert inspired by Martin Lee’s book, Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana – Medical, Recreational, and Scientific. In this musical presentation, Israel uses music and spoken word to explore the history of cannabis adapting stories of countercultural icons, grassroots activists, and the plant itself, to weave a time-traveling tale of jubilation, injustice, and transformation.
