Alternate Ingestion Method For Dosed Cannabis Extracts

It seems to me that most patients do benefit from sublingual or “oral-bucal” extracts, but there are some patients who just don’t respond using the sublingual route – or they are starting to take 15 or 20 mg of whole plant CBD and not doing as well as they should or would like.

In some recent patient experiences, I have suggested the following method of taking their dose orally instead of sublingually. For many patients this is helpful and perhaps worth a try.

1. Take 1/2 of your total daily CBD dose and

2. Spray it onto an appropriately sized piece of toast (i.e. any size that works for you)

3. Add some fat content using avocado, butter, cream cheese, olive oil, etc

4. Add flavor or sweetness if desired

5. Take once or twice daily. Not infrequently, a dose can last a full 24 hours in this manner

Allan Frankel, MD Dr Allan Frankel is one of the few physicians in the US who truly understands Cannabis as a medicine. All treatments suggested have been well studied. Every patient seen by Dr Frankel is given a personally created Treatment Plan created with the patient's specific issues defined. Plant medicine requires "tuning" of the dosing. Dr Frankel works with his patients thru a messaging portal. The use of this portal, allows quick and simple follow up contact with Dr Frankel. Patients are not charged for these messages, as this is how Dr Frankel has learned what he has learned. Follow up appointments in person or by phone/video are also available when needed

Cannabis May Prevent COVID-19 Infections

Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD's effect on COVID-19's ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.
