Picture this: 1970's. Greenwich Village, New York. John Lennon of the Beatles and his artist wife Yoko Ono welcome legendary rock photographer Leni Sinclair and her recently-released-from-prison husband, John Sinclair. They flew from Michigan to NYC to say thank you for Lennon helping Sinclair get released from prison on cannabis charges. And they celebrate the event by smoking pot together and grooving.
That's one of the stories told by Mr. John Sinclair, the White Panther co-founder and former Public Enemy #1 during the Nixon era, during this installment of his regular appearances on Jazz Cabbage Café. Sinclair is a national treasure, full of historical perspective and an edge that time cannot dull. He joins cannabis scientist Tiffany Coleman on the January 26 episode of Jazz Cabbage Cafe, hosted by Jamie Lowell and Rick Thompson.
Ms. Coleman delves into Delta-8 THC, a new derivative of cannabis creeping onto dispensary shelves across the country. She discusses the chemical processes needed to create Delta 8 and how its popularity is similar to the spike in interest over CBD products in recent years.
In January 2021, Jazz Cabbage was named one of America's top cannabis podcasts from 2020 by CelebStoner. Thompson (NORML of Michigan, Cannabis Caucus, The Social Revolution.org) and Lowell (The Botanical Company, Redemption Foundation, Trailblazer Award winner) have been fixtures of the cannabis community for more than a decade.
The Cabbage Patch is full of regulars who are distinguished podcasters in their own right. Petitioning and campaigning expert Debra Young leads a group including Colin MacDougall and Jim Salame (The Entheo Show), Shelly Smith (Reads and Weeds) and occasionally, Berg and Roche (Medical Mondays).
Video of all Jazz Cabbage Café episodes can be found on YouTube on the channel bearing their name. They are broadcast LIVE at 4pm EST every Thursday on the Jazz Cabbage Cafe's Facebook page, and are recorded via Zoom.
