This is now the third myasthenia patient who has responded to a combination of CBD, THC and THC-Acid.

This patient was not as critically ill as the last patient so we went a bit slower in adding first CBD –> THC –> THC-Acid. For sure the patient got better as the molecules were added. It seems from just a few patients, that the THC-A is more effective with the small muscles, such as facial and the CBD/THC seem to help the larger muscle groups. Of course many more patients will need to be seen to be more certain of these finer points.

However, it appears that there is no question that CBD/THC/THC-A all help patients with myasthenia.

Possible mechanisms might be that it works like mestanon, the mg drug that increases neuromuscular junction acetylcholine. Another mechanism could be decrease in the patients antibodies against their neuro endplate? My guess is that it increases acetylcholine levels in the neuromuscular junction.

With three out of three patients we have seen very good and promising results. I would love to see more patients.

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

Rationing Health Care

With COVID, we have never been more aware of critical shortages of masks, ventilators, hospital beds, etc., all leading to rationing. In this BLOG, Dr Frankel, examines how rationing in our medical care is a much bigger problem than just face masks.

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.
