What Are You Smoking?

Episode 52: How Cannabis Opens Up Art Therapy

This week, art therapist, educator, and cannabis cultivator Michael Buchert joins the show to talk about art therapy and the role cannabis can play in a mental health practice. Michael shares some pointers on how patients can talk to their counselors and therapists about cannabis use, and what all mental health professionals need to understand about cannabis.

We’ll also talk about his cannabis brand, Ritual, and hear thoughts on why it’s so tough to get quality sun-grown flower onto dispensary shelves—and what it will take to change that dynamic.

And of course, the whole gang shares what they’ve been smoking lately.
