DOSED CANNABIS MEDICINE

It seems redundant to use the term “dosed medicine”, but with cannabis being mostly illegal, any attempts to move the science forward has been stalled.

Nearly all medicine is “dosed”. It is difficult to imagine having doctor-patient discussions when neither knows what the patient is taking. If the patient is doing well, how do you provide predictable medication the next visit without dosing? If the patient is NOT doing well, knowing the dose, the physician and patient have a much better opportunity to improve the situation.

With cannabis, the medicinal oil can be organically extracted and blended with water and glycerin or agave to a known concentration or mg/ml of extract. If you add a dosed delivery system, you now can give a patient known mg dose of cannabinoids and terpenes.

Clinically, cannabis medicine can be advised with specific milligram doses for both THC and CBD; dosing of Terpenes will not be far behind. When the consistent, dosed and tested extracts are created, a number of different high ratio CBD plants are used. Some create extracts that are 25:1 ratios of CBD:THC; others produce medicine at a 1:1 ratio and mostly every ratio in between.

The higher ratio CBD extracts are used for disorders such as anxiety and seizures while the more THC balanced ones tend to be more effective for pain and inflammation.

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.
