I just listened to your interview on pelvic messenger radio. My pelvic pain has been present for four years but presently it’s at a lower level, but I’ve been considering the cannibus (CBD ) route . Have you heard of this company in Colorado? Their fairly new. I tried a 25 mg capsule for a 2 hour car ride and was quite comfortable compared to a significant increase of pain with sitting after 15 to 30 minutes . This cBD capsule was made from a hemp plant and you mentioned hemp
Plants are worthless, that it’s never been used as a medicine plant . Here is their link and page that describes their process. How do you come with that conclusion ? http://imbuebotanicals.com/journal/is-cbd-from-marijuana-plants-really-better/

I have been working with CBD for seven years. It is not that the CBD is different in Hemp; the molecule is the same. The difference is that the cannabis plant is the “medicine” plant and has over 700 terpenes, flavonoids, waxes and more. We have done a number of comparison studies with dozens of patients and I feel certain Cannabis, as a medicine, is far superior to hemp.

Check out a blog I wrote named “CBD vs CBD”. Also, CBD is not the only cannabinoid we use for Pelvic Pain. We use both THC and THC-Acid.

I am not saying they are worthless, but for certain, whole plant cannabis is a much better product. Also, in Colorado you can find whole plant CBD so why go with hemp?

CBD often helps with Dizziness or vertigo. Also, THC-Acid helps. Perhaps consider a phone consult?

I see that you advise a call to your office most times for a consult. I would like to know how costly that is and how I can find a doctor to issue a card so I can get help for RLS. Thank you.

Well, if patients are able to come in, it is always best, but we have contact and help many patients outside of California. Our initial consultation is $300. It is one hour long and we include a number of messages as part of the follow up and do not charge for this. If you live in California, getting a “card” is pretty easy.

Does Dr. Frankel have a financial interest in any products that he recommends?

This is Dr. Frankel. I have zero financial interest in the products I recommend. To ensure the products that I recommend to patients are of the correct formulations, I consult to collectives but do not receive compensation of any kind.

Dr. Frankel, do you treat for diagnosed, moderate to severe inattentive ADD? I also have moderate to severe depression brought on by the ADD.

Dr Frankel, also, I think I should add that I’ve had some amazing results for my ADD, from smoking pot but after a couple of weeks I no longer have the results. I just have the dependence. I’m so hoping that you understand what I’m talking about and you can help me with this, without the high or the dependence.
Thank you and anxiously waiting for your reply, Cynthia

I fully understand what you are saying. I believe we can work out a treatment plan combining CBD, THC and possibly some THC-A. I would like to work with you as we are seeing good results with ADD using CBD with minimal THC. I feel optimistic, based upon our previous results with similar patients, that there is a pretty good chance of achieving some level of success and hopefully be very successful.

Dr. Frankel I came to see you awail ago you recommend the capsules starting with #3. I took 2weeks of them and ordered #4. Took 2 weeks of theses and am now taking #5s. My concern is that these capsules are 30mgs. Compare d to the Rick Simmons formula this is not very much. I have an aggressive form of prostate cancer and am hoping to control it with cannibus. I am also taking Lupron and Cosodex however my psa continues to raise and my oncologist will soon change my therapy to Xtandi.
Do you have any clients who have been successful in controlling prostate cancer by using this method of treatment? If so this be a big help for me to be able to speak with them.

I have had many patients do well. I would suggest the #5 plus a THC-Acid capsule three times daily on an empty stomach. The THC-Acid is an important addition to our anti-cancer program. Even so, between the cbd, thc and thc-a the total mg per day is 135 mg.

The RSO dose, in my opinion, is way, way too high. Also, thc-a and CBD are very important molecules.

I just do not think using so much thc that you become extremely “stoned” is a great idea. Also, over the past four years, these other molecules, in my opinion, are way more important than just more THC.

So, i would take a #5 capsule three times daily along with capsule thc-a on an empty stomach is a very reasonable dose. MORE, is not necessarily better.

I part, the RSO therapy is used so widely because it is easily created by growers as opposed to chemists and scientists. Growers tend to think in grams.

Anyway, nobody know what is the “best” at this point in time. In a few weeks, a new four in one capsule will be available with CBD/THC/THC-a and CBD-A will be available. I am excited about this as thc-a and now cbd-a have been shown to be effective against cancer…so why not use all four molecules
