An Evening With Dr. Ethan Russo: The Terpene AfterBuzz

VIMEA meetup 4/15/15

VIMEA meetup 4/15/15

On Tuesday I took a little adventure on a ferry over to Vashon Island for the monthly Vashon Island Marijuana Industry Alliance (VIMEA) Meetup. It was the second one that I have been to and it did not disappoint.

The first time I went to one of their Meetups was last month and it was there that I initially met Dr. Ethan Russo and learned that he would be speaking this month. I immediately put that event into my schedule.

Meeting Dr. Ethan Russo

TwiceBakedinWA with Dr. Ethan Russo

In case you don’t know, Dr. Ethan Russo is a world renowned cannabis researcher, neurologist, and author. He spent an hour talking to a very packed house about terpenes and the entourage effect. I was sitting on the floor in the very front with my notebook and pen taking down the points that didn’t go over my head.

I’ll share two of my takeaways:

1) When it comes to taking CBD, more is better.

2) Terpenes are best taken through the skin or inhaled from the air.

After the event there was an inhaling celebration of another kind by the 135 attendees outside as one would expect from a devoted cannabis community.

Check out the after buzz with myself and Virginia from PhytaLab here:

I have a whole new respect for the cannabis medicine that I take daily from this evening. Thank you to VIMEA for putting it on and to Dr. Russo for so graciously sharing your knowledge.
