Therapeutic Use of Cannabis

There is a lot of controversy and mixed opinions regarding the legalization of marijuana. I believe 25 or so states have approved it for medical use and 2 for recreational use.

While I am not in favor of my 16-year-old experimenting with pot, I do believe there may be some therapeutic uses that have merit.

Just this week I got a newsletter with a link to a video about CBD, a non-hallucinogenic constituent that shows promise for a number of conditions including MS.

It’s quite expensive, free of THC and seems to have some good science behind it.

Just today, I suggested a patient with MS-like symptoms who has been on a roller coaster ride give it a look-see.

I would love to hear your opinions on the Facebook page.
