CASE STUDIES: CANNABIS AND VERTIGO

We are all very familiar with both CBD rich and THC rich medicines helping a lot with nausea. In recent months I have seen a number of patients with vertigo from different etiologies. A few have been related to inner ear issues, a few have been associated with local cancers and a few were a part of a systemic neurological disorder.

They seem to share one thing in common; they all seem to respond to CBD in doses of 6 mg per 24 hours.

I feel comfortable thinking about Vertigo the same way I think of nausea. Both CBD and THC are effective in treating both nausea and vomiting; not all that surprising as they are so frequently related.

So, if you Diagnose Vertigo, think cannabinoids
