Paige Figi returns to discuss with us the progress that has been made in cannabis over the past five years — nowadays, cannabis can be discussed in public without anyone batting an eye. Figi focuses on CBD in particular; she shares her daughter’s excellent progress using CBD as a way to control her epilepsy: “She isn’t on any other medications. And so it’s like a clean sample. And it isn’t science because it’s one person. It isn’t a clinical trial because we’re not in a hospital setting or lab. But she’s used the same product for almost eight years, and she hasn’t had any other mud muddying this puddle.” Figi dives into the “gold standard” of Western medicine and shares her belief that we should all be questioning the pharmaceutical default of care and wellness.

Seth Adler: So that's your breakfast is what we're saying?
Paige Figi: Yeah, and dinner.
Seth Adler: And dinner?
Paige Figi: Well, we got some street food, but we were just talking too much.
Seth Adler: To eat.
Paige Figi: To eat for dinner.
Seth Adler: See, that never happens to me. We've had this conversation, that I'm too food-based to forget dinner.
Paige Figi: To skip?
Seth Adler: Yeah. It just wouldn't happen.
Paige Figi: I'm like a camel. I can go and go and go without food, which I think is actually healthy and natural, a little bit, to fast and skip. Do you fast ever?
Seth Adler: No. I mean, Yom Kippur, actually, this is the time of the season.
Paige Figi: I fast four times a year. I don't know. I must have read this somewhere decades ago, and I fast with each solstice and equinox. I just do a quick... And it's not a religious-
Seth Adler: How long?
Paige Figi: So twice a year. So four times a year. I do a week, so I'll ease into it with raw, I'll eat raw for a couple of days. And I'll do a liquid smoothie for a day. Then at the middle of it is two days of nothing, just water. And then I back out. I do the same thing on reverse. I'll lose a liquid diet and then I'll do raw and then I go back into it. I always ease back into regular... But I don't eat meat. I don't eat a lot of meat. And cheese and bread and that kind of stuff. And it just symbolizes the seasons, and your diet changes if you do eat local and healthy. I just think it gives me a set point for... Starts me over. It's like a little refresh four times a year for each season. So the summer, the solstice, and the winter solstice and then the spring and fall equinox, which we just had.
Seth Adler: Yeah, sure. The vernal equinox even. So we just had the fall one.
Paige Figi: We just had the fall one.
Seth Adler: So what is the outcome? You said it's refreshing, but-
Paige Figi: I don't know. I just think it's to reset yourself a little bit.
