NOTE FROM TED: Please do not look to this talk for medical advice. While cannabis and CBD are an emerging field of study, their associated health effects remain inconclusive and unsupported by current scientific evidence. This talk only represents the speaker’s personal experiences with healing and mind-body medicine. TEDx events are independently organized by volunteers. The guidelines we give organizers are described in more detail here:

This empowering and thought provoking talk challenges the standard definition of a ‘healthy lifestyle’, examines the impact that the mind has on the body, and shines light on how and why cannabis works for a variety of medical conditions. Elise Keller explains how the biological mechanism responsible for how cannabis works in our body – the endocannabinoid system – could have us all reconsidering what it means to stay physically healthy. Elise Keller is the founder of Rise CannaCoaching and Rise.Thrive.Soar –- an online breast cancer community group for women who are learning to support their endocannabinoid system during cancer treatment and beyond.
Elise started Rise after experiencing first hand how difficult it is to get sound, meaningful and evidence based information about how to use cannabis as a cancer patient The further she fell into cannabis medicine, the more it became evident to her that cannabis was in fact a gateway drug after all – a gateway to connecting to a new understanding of whole health, and what it means to live a healthy lifestyle

Elise trained through the Medical Cannabis Institute, the Cannabis Coaching Institute, and is a member of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

Burhanuddin Sakarwala says:

It's a cultural phenomenon in India to smoke weed. It's an Ayurvedic herb and has been used by us Indians for thousands of years. The god Shiva himself used to smoke weed to reconcile his divinity with his darker Shakti. The Shia Muslims used to it to become fearless and ready to meet death in times of battle. I am an Indian Shia Muslim and I consider Marijuana usage to be my birthright.
