The Science Behind Medical Cannabis and Arthritis | Discover Marijuana
Today on Discover Marijuana, Tim and Blake dive deep into Medical Cannabis for arthritis pain. Arthritis requires a multi-prong medical approach and today we'll talk about why.
Medical marijuana has been used for pain for decades. With modern science, Zion and other cannabis companies are able to create medicines to treat arthritis pain without the fear of feeling high. A combination of tinctures, balms, and vape carts can be used to treat everything from acute pain in a single spot to chronic widespread pain.
Tim & Blake know that medical cannabis is new to most of us, and that many of us have questions. Even though CBD has been widely accepted across the country, many are still left wondering about it. Discover Marijuana is all about getting you the information you need to dispel the myths and allow you to know the options you have when looking into plant-based medicine.
Tim Pickett, a Utah QMP and founder of http://utahmarijuana.org, meets with patients daily to recommend medical cannabis. Having a certain CBD dosage on hand as you ease into this treatment is highly recommended, especially if you are unfamiliar or made uncomfortable by the euphoric head high that comes with cannabis. CBD will help to tap that feeling down a bit.
Because CBD has been popular and legal for much longer, many of those appointments start with the same few questions. “Is CBD safe? Does CBD work? What are CBD tinctures? What are the CBD side effects? Can I have a CBD overdose?” A basic understanding of how to use CBD is the foundation to a healthy relationship with cannabis, and because of this, Tim will often recommend CBD for beginners to plant-based treatment.
Your other host, Blake Smith, CSO of http://zionmedicinal.com, a Utah CBD and cannabis company, has studied cannabis and the endocannabinoid system for years, and it shows. While Tim takes over how to use CBD, THC, and loads of other cannabinoids to help different ailments, Blake will explain WHY CBD works for Parkinson’s, pain, seizures, etc. for a full spectrum view of your treatment. We believe this will help patients take control of their own healthcare — something that hasn’t been possible in many other areas.
