Plant medicine is nothing new to mankind. Indigenous people learned how to use herbs way back. Are these plants in danger of extinction as a result of increased usage? What happens to people that rely on them for food and religion?
To help answer the above questions is today’s guest; a 4th generation Jamaican herbalist, Oskii Chevanier. He is a plant-based nutritionist with a foundation rooted in the techniques passed down by his grandfather who passed at 103 years in 2010.
Dr. O and Oskii dived deep into all things plant medicine; including cannabis landrace and the danger it poses for the next generation. Oskii currently works with western-trained integrative clinicians interested not just in western medicine, but the ancient traditions in the management of diseases.
