Andrew Tait from Vancouver BC Canada got his PhD in chemistry at the University of British Columbia and founded Tait Labs in 2011. He studied traditional Chinese medicine and “realized a need to apply scientific rigor to traditional medicines in order prove their potency, safety and efficacy in the treatment of a wide range of ailments that are plaguing the world today.” Tait Labs developed a product based on a Traditional Chinese Medicine recipe extracted from aged mandarin orange peels that he now sells as a supplement for digestive relief, nausea, and gut health promotion. We talk kratom, snake oil, plant medicine, naturopathy, and the politics of access to helpful substances.
