Washington, DC -- Last week, Americans for Safe Access (ASA), the leading advocacy organization dedicated to ensuring safe and legal access to cannabis (marijuana) for therapeutic use and research, and The Cannigma, a premier website dedicated to educating their audience about the healing properties of cannabis, announced a new partnership to educate patients, caregivers, providers and supporters on the latest issues surrounding medical cannabis through bi-monthly podcasts.
he Cannabis Enigma podcast provides insight from medical cannabis researchers, doctors, and patients sharing new developments, educational information, and personal stories. Created by The Cannigma in 2019, the podcast will now be co-produced by ASA, and include segments during each episode dedicated to highlight ASA’s advocacy.
In the latest episode, ASA Executive Director Debbie Churgai and Interim Policy Director Dustin McDonald sat down with The Cannigma’s Michael Schaeffer to talk about the fight for legalization and access.
“While the acceptance of cannabis continues to grow throughout the world, ASA and Cannigma recognize the need for a greater understanding of the science, research, and human stories that surround the therapeutic benefits of cannabis,” said Debbie Churgai, Executive Director of ASA. “We are excited to forge this new partnership with the Cannabis Enigma podcast to expand the ways in which we can educate the public on medical cannabis from a scientific perspective.”
“With the uptick of research over the past few years and legalization measures around the world, we’re finally on our way to solving the cannabis enigma,” added Elana Goldberg, CEO of The Cannigma. “By understanding the science, pulling apart what we know and what we don’t know, we can help ease the stigma around cannabis and encourage safe, legal access for everyone who needs or wants it. This podcast partnership with ASA is another step in the right direction.”
