How Cannabis-Based Products Can Address a Variety of Conditions, Part 1
January 29, 2019
Amid the strident controversy over medical marijuana’s legitimacy, Dr. Patricia Frye offers a reasoned and scientifically-based evaluation of how cannabis-based products can address a variety of conditions in her book, "The Medical Marijuana Guide: Cannabis and Your Health." Cannabinoids work to alleviate pain via a variety of pathways, making them a preferable alternative—or safe adjunct—to addictive or dangerous pain meds; They may help neurological conditions like Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, MS and seizures; They bring relief to sufferers of GI conditions like colitis, Crohn’s Disease and IBS. They are wonderful for anxiety and insomnia, and may help lift mood in depression. When is CBD alone enough, and what conditions require the addition of THC? Can you get relief without the disorienting “high”? Why does Dr. Frye urge a “less is more” approach when it comes to dosing? How to choose among delivery systems—capsules, tinctures, edibles, vaping, nebulizing, topicals? Is there a likelihood of dependency? Does condoning medical marijuana open the floodgates to more widespread recreational use by kids with neurodevelopmental consequences? Does CBD or THC interact with prescription medications? What about possible contaminants—how to insure you’re getting “clean” products? Click HERE for part 2.
