I've covered the basics of one of my favorite compounds - CBD, in many past popular podcasts and articles.

But there are still many unanswered questions in the realm of CBD, including:

-What is the difference between full spectrum vs. broad spectrum vs. CBD isolate and other forms of CBD?

-What is the difference between extraction methods of CBD?

-How does one decide between vaping vs. edibles vs. oils vs. capsules vs. soft gels, etc. and what is the differences in absorption between all those options?

-What can CBD be effectively stacked with, what are your best stacks and what can you can expect from different stacks?

-Does CBD have a variability of effects depending on the time of day it is used, based on some kind of diurnal effect?

-And much more...

My guest on today's show is Adam Wenguer, who has grown to be a friend of mine after we met training at a gym in Miami, Florida. Adam grew up in Miami, in a Cuban Jewish household. He started Martial Arts at a young age and continues extensive Jiu Jitsu practice as a brown belt as well as training in Boxing and Muay Thai kickboxing. Adam attended the University of Florida in 2006.

After suffering a spine and leg injury in College, Adam was treated with pharmaceutical opioids which led to an intense but all too common addiction. On his path to recovery he became immersed in Zen Buddhism, Health & Wellness, and began his life long path into Spirituality. This eventually led Adam to graduate with a degree in Applied Physiology & Kinesiology as he sought to bring greater physical healing to others, as he had done for himself.

As a Strength/Conditioning and Health Coach at a well known 5 star wellness resort, he worked with wide array of professional athletes, company executives and individuals seeking optimal health. Many of his client were suffering from the same ailments: including sleep issues, anxiety, inflammatory disorders as well as a general emotional and spiritual disconnect. This led Adam to wanting to take a more holistic approach towards educating and treating his clients with the use of natural compounds such as CBD. In 2017, Adam founded Element Health which is now one of the leading suppliers of the highest quality Full Spectrum CBD products in the world.

Adam spends a majority of his time with his wife Kristen and their 3 dogs in their beach community of Surfside, FL. In his free time he continues to train and compete in Martial Arts. He is also heavily involved in the study of plant medicine and the shamanic approach to healing. Adam boar and deer hunts several times year to ethically provide his family and friends with the most nutritious protein available. Last, Adam finds the deepest joy and his true purpose by sharing the healing techniques of his intense journey with as many people as possible.
