78: Healing Through Cannabis with Brooke Burgstahler

Do you know the benefits of cannabis? We are constantly finding out about its many new benefits through research. 


In this episode of The Dr. Kinney Show, I sat down with Brooke Burgstahler to talk about all things cannabis and how it can heal you not only physically, but emotionally as well. 


Brooke Burgstahler is a writer, producer, host, and actress in television, online media, and film. A specialist in high-quality educational and entertaining content she calls “edutainment,” Brooke is the star of the digital success World of Weed News which she develops, produces, and hosts daily. An in-demand creator in cannabis, Brooke scours for stories and conceptualizes unique topics to explore, covering everything from pop culture to politics, history, hot new brands, celebrity interviews, and progress in social justice reform. 


On the acting side, Brooke’s appeared on MTV (Greatest Party Story Ever), ABC (General Hospital, Black-ish), TBS (TBS Shorts), AMC (Mad Men), the Oxygen Network (Speak For The Dead), Covergirl, and more. In cannabis media, she’s the creative visionary behind numerous campaigns with several premier media outlets.


 In 2018, Brooke was awarded a Golden Telly for her Docu-Series Prisoners of Prohibition produced for Merry Jane Media. To date, Brooke’s online content has reached millions of viewers. Brooke is also a 500-hour certified yoga instructor and holds a Bachelor of Science in Broadcast Journalism and Bachelor of Arts in Theater from The University of Miami. 


Brooke’s cannabis and wellness startup Budding Mind is designed to expand the mind and heart through the exploration of plant medicine, alternative healing, science, and spirituality. The multi-channel online platform features podcasts, video, long-form education content, and e-commerce for Brooke’s favorite products and brands. 


In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 


  • What the endocannabinoid system is
  • The benefits of cannabis
  • The difference between an herb and a medication
  • Why cannabis is so great for anxiety and depression
  • The difference between cannabis and alcohol
  • How cannabis can help expand your mind
  • How cannabis can promote emotional healing



It’s truly amazing how powerful this plant can be. Despite the misconceptions, it doesn’t do damage to your body as alcohol does. It works with your endocannabinoid system to heal you in multiple ways.
