Last month Lauren Watson, Director of Education at Berkeley Patients Group, joined us Around the Table to discuss therapeutic cannabis. Lauren, also our neighbor here in Sausalito, is a wealth of information on THC, CBD and other cannabis extracts that are quickly becoming more accessible. Cannabis is commonly used to mitigate conditions including arthritis, chronic pain, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, PTSD, anxiety and weight loss. Read Lauren’s advice for developing — and enjoying — your own cannabis therapy.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is an oil extracted from the hemp plant, and is known to have powerful botanical benefits. Like THC, CBD is known to have soothing, anti-inflammatory properties. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, so you won’t get that “stoned” feeling — helpful when you need to think straight, and it’s perfect for a non-smoker. Best of all, CBD products are now available at Driver’s Market in the form of supplements and drinks.

Poetry surrounds us, making us realize the slimness of the membrane between internal and external worlds. In his book, Your Personal America, Sausalito poet Paul Geffner explores the America familiar to so many of us, as well as territory new and uncharted. Along the way he saves Christmas, kills the Easter Bunny, and contemplates why dinosaurs speak English in cartoons. Paul joined us Around the Table in August 2018 to read some of his favorite poems — his own and others. Here is an excerpt from his book, the title poem ‘Your Personal America’.
Sunscreens contain dozens of chemicals to protect our skin from damaging sun rays. Unfortunately, many of these chemicals are also linked to harmful health effects such as endocrine disruption and cancer. Other chemicals in sunscreens are toxic to coral reefs.

Sausalito resident Mike Moyle joined us at Driver’s Market to present the history of Caledonia Street. In a talk titled “Golfers, Gangsters and Garages” Mike used historical photographs to tell the stories of Sausalito’s buildings and local characters. In April 2016, Mike gave a similar talk as part of the Sausalito Historical Society that included an exhibit and the Caledonia Street Walking Tour. The Walking Tour featured a numbered photograph identifying the buildings that remain largely unchanged today, more than 85 years later.
