As a physician, I have never in 34 years been called “ignorant” by any drug salesperson. Today, over the phone, I was told by a senior staff person at C3 Collective, which makes Idrasil, that I was ignorant and needed to understand how the chemistry of cannabinoids work. I was also informed that I didn’t know how to process medication for testing. The reason he is so upset is that I don’t like them, their product nor their ridiculous claims that all major insurance companies will reimburse for their cannabinoid product. I have seen this twice before in my seven years in this business. Both times, the insurance claims were bogus and people were prosecuted. Just because checks come in from insurance companies for the “Idrasil”, does not in any way mean that the insurance companies really know what they are paying for.
I have asked the C3 folks for a visit to Blue Shield to meet with executives there on several occasions. They just insist that the checks from the insurance company are adequate. I don’t accept this. If these guys want to convince us that their medication is any good, they need to prove it.
I recently came into possession of several of the Idrasil pills and sent them off to two different labs; one in N Cal and one in S Cal. In both cases, the amount of active cannabinoids was no where close to their claims. I also personally ingested a tablet and had no CBD effect whatsoever. When a person ingests CBD orally, there is a very distinctive feeling in the lateral areas of ones brain, as the receptors for CBD are in a different location than THC. I felt no THC nor CBD effect.
Idrasil also has CBN inside. CBN is a breakdown product of THC and has minimal if any known benefit. No other company in the world is promoting that 1/3 of their cannabinoids are CBN. It, like the Calcium in the tablet, are fillers in my opinion.
I was asked by the Idrasil representative to be given the chance to explain to me my serious ignorance. He also wants to tell me why my writing is so poor. Well, I am happy to meet this person, but only in a public area where there can be clear public documentation and recording of what is said. Perhaps a collective would offer a platform? In addition, I will not meet privately with someone much, much taller than myself whom I had to hang up on, as he was screaming at me. Scary guy, scary company, useless medication.
