Benjamin Bey of Soul D’licious Seasonings and co-host Stephanie Magurno of THC Production, LLC interview Stephanie Sheehan, editor of Vegas Cannabis Magazine & Tahoe Cannabis. Additionally, the crew discusses prescription medications and a list created to help doctors make smarter choices when working with cannabis. Finally, Stephanie discussed trichomes.
Today in our science segment, we talk about cannabis and prescription drug interactions. A recent 2020 study from Penn State addressed a variety of medication which may not work well in combination with cannabinoids. 57 total. This includes both medical and recreational cannabis.
This list was created in order to assist doctors when prescribing Rx meds and cannabis properly. Additionally, it’s hoped that patients will benefit from physicians with greater knowledge. Finally, it was stressed that the doctor-patient relationship is very important to maintain. It’s best if you and your physician are honest with one another in order to achieve the best care possible.
Hash It Out! – Interview With Stephanie Shehan
Stephanie Shehan is the owner and editor of both Tahoe Cannabis Magazine and Vegas Cannabis Magazine. She helped found Vegas Cannabis Magazine in 2014. Then, Tahoe Cannabis Magazine started up three years later in 2017. Stephanie first got the idea to found a cannabis magazine while she was using Xanex prescribed by her doctor for a sleep disorder. Eventually, a friend of hers turned her on to cannabis oil and she began searching for further info. However, it was very difficult to find much reliable info on cannabis and the cannabis market.
Back in 2014, the Nevada cannabis market was just beginning to bud (excuse the pun). As a result, much of the market was still underground. It was difficult to gain interest in the magazine at first. Even at smoke shops and dispensaries, it was a challenge. In fact, some businesses suggested changing the magazine’s name to avoid bad press. However, Stephanie Shehan maintained her vision and stood strong by her idea.

Nugs of Knowledge
This week, we talk about trichomes. They can be found on many types of plants. These are commonly seen in the form of hairs, especially on the cannabis plant. They store the terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids found in cannabis. Trichomes protect the plant from bugs, wind, UV light, bacteria, and more.
Cannabis has three different types of trichomes. Some are visible to the naked eye. On the other hand, some are more difficult to see. Trichomes should not be confused with pistols. As the cannabis plant begins to flower, the glands begin to produce cannabinoids. Trichomes can be seen with a magnifying glass.
When trichomes are clear, they are not yet ready to be harvested. When they become cloudy, they are now at their best time for harvest. Later, trichomes may begin to develop an amber tone. If they are still a cloudy amber color, you can expect a powerful high. However, when they become fully amber, THC potency decreases by 80%. Therefore, most growers will avoid allowing too much time to pass. On the other hand, the plant now contains a large concentration of CBN which is also a desirable cannabinoid.
