  1. Thanks for attempting to talk about MC. So much to cram into a 48 minute discussion and so much that was not even addressed. In my own efforts to control pain, anxiety, PTSD, and gut issues, I have found help with CBD oil, edibles, as well as smoking flowers with a moderate amount of THC. I was super lucky to get hooked up with a collective (pharmacy) that is involved in private research in California. I got excellent advice on how to dose Medical Cannabis appropriately. It's much different – and much less quantity – that using cannabis recreationally. Certainly, adolescents should not be using cannabis without strict supervision, let alone recreationally. I was witness to a young adult male who had an episode and paramedics had to be called. He was awake but unresponsive from one hit of cannabis. Unsure of his medical history with psychotropic drugs, but this may have been a factor. So, this can happen, although this is the only time I have personally seen it.

    What was not even touched on is research that shows humans have an endocannabinoid system. Many herbs used medicinally contain similar compounds as cannabis, such as terpenes. That's part of the reason why they do work.

    I still agree that more research is needed but as someone who has allergic reactions and weird side effects that are worse than the symptoms I am trying to treat to practically every drug I have ever attempted to take… MC is a viable option to help alleviate symptoms so I can have some kind of quality of life, along with homeopathics, herbs and vitamin supplements.
