Colorado is auctioning marijuana-themed license plates to lift cash for individuals with disabilities
Elon Musk may know a thing or two about missiles and electronic vehicles, but during an interview with podcaster Joe Rogan earlier this week, he revealed a blind spot on cannabis and said he thought CBD was “counterfeit.”
That’s not to say that he believes the non-intoxicating cannabinoid doesn’t really exist. Rather, the technology entrepreneur stated that he had the feeling that it was oversubscribed and “does nothing”. For his part, Rogan had a lot to say in response to the benefits of cannabidiol.
The exchange began with Musk and Rogan pondering an earlier podcast show in 2018 where the SpaceX and Tesla CEO puffed on a marijuana stump (which he later claimed he never actually inhaled), which “And” led to a NASA investigation into “his aerospace company’s workplace safety” and adherence to a drug-free environment. “
Rogan, who moved his podcast headquarters from California to Texas last year, noted that his new home state hasn’t legalized marijuana yet, but “CBD is legal here”.
“CBD doesn’t do anything. Does it? “Musk said.” I think that’s wrong. “
Listen as Musk and Rogan talk about CBD downstairs around 50:00 p.m.:
Rogan promptly gave Musk a crash course on the numerous therapeutic benefits of CBD that have been identified in an ever-growing body of scientific literature.
Read the rest of the exchange below:
JR: Well, no – no, it definitely does something against inflammation.
IN THE: It does?
JR: Yes! For sure.
IN THE: Well how much CBD do you need to have before you notice it?
IN THE: Yes.
JR: Yes, you don’t have to have a lot physically. Physically, CBD works great for people with arthritis and people with sore muscles and things like that. Yes, no, CBD definitely works for this, but not by much in terms of psychoactive effects. It relieves people’s anxiety.
IN THE: OK.
JR: It helps people sleep, especially when combined with things like melatonin. But it doesn’t get you up. People mix CBD with THC for muscle creams, and that won’t get you high either, but it does increase potency.
IN THE: OK.
JR: Yes, there are some creams that are really good that such people contain THC and CBD.
IN THE: Okay, you like sunscreen or something and then I mean, why don’t you just toss it in?
JR: Why not? Well, it’s great for pain.
IN THE: You smell like weed all day.
JR: It doesn’t smell like grass, however.
IN THE: Is not it?
JR: No, no – some of it does, however. That’s the thing with anything that isn’t regulated, isn’t it? Like hippies who make it, that’s always the problem.
IN THE: Quality control.
JR: Yes, no quality control. That’s the problem with food. They’re made by a bunch of crazy people who cook them and some, you know, Chula Vista apartments, you really don’t know what’s in there.
Musk may not be entirely up to date on the CBD, but he does enjoy playing around in the marijuana culture from time to time.
For example, when Telsa’s shares hit $ 420, he responded on Twitter with crying, laughing emojis, saying, “Whoa … the stock is so high lol.”
Of course, 420 is well known among cannabis enthusiasts as it represents the unofficial cannabis holiday 4/20. And it wasn’t the first time Musk had played either.
The billionaire tech entrepreneur landed in hot water with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 2018 after saying he was considering taking Tesla private at a share price of $ 420 – an announcement the SEC deemed “false and.” misleading “and which was made without the necessary notification of the supervisory authorities.
For his part, Rogan is a proud cannabis and psychedelics enthusiast and, for example, once shared how he hung out with Dave Chappelle while the comedian was eating psilocybin mushrooms given by a stranger.
