Clinical herbalist Justin Garner from Sweet Flag Medicinals Herbal Clinic & Apothecary in Brattleboro, VT, rejoins Becky on WKBK, this time for a lively discussion surrounding

Holistic approaches to opiate withdrawal - as Justin says,

"I think there are a lot of people who don't know they can take opioid dependence into their own hands."

Included in the discussion but not limited to:

Becky says, Nourish your ENDOCANNABINOID system - "endo" means you make these yourself - healthy human breast milk is sky-high rich with cannabis! - but you might not be making enough yourself, in which case God gave us plant sources to fill in the gaps:
