DOSING CANNABIS IS NOT AIDING AND ABETTING; IT IS COMMON SENSE

I was very please to find the following article on dosing cannabis. This article contends that until there is reasonable and accurate dosing available for cannabis, that it will never be completely accepted.

I COULD NOT AGREE MORE.

One side note, before I go on, every patient at GreenBridge is given dosing information to the mg. We adjust it all the time at follow up visits and follow up phone calls. We adjust doses of cannabinoids and now even Terpenes for individualized dosing.

If neither the patient, the collective nor the physician have a clue as to what the patient is taking, there is of course no hope for dosing or dosage adjustment. It is true that 15% or so of the population that uses smoked cannabis, dose by puffing and re-evaluating how many more puffs to take. Edibles are generally entirely un-dosable as it is rare for accurate dosing by the mg.

Another point to make is that it appears that the mainstream is beginning to demand dosing. Many physicians have had fears of dosing as this might be tantamount to writing a prescription for cannabis. Of course this is not a prescription. A prescription is a set of orders to a pharmacy. The pharmacy supplies and gives instructions to the patient. I cannot give any direct order or prescription to a collective as they interact only with the patient – at least for now.

With dosing becoming something demanded by the mainstream, physicians should feel comfortable learning dosing and educating their patients. There should be no fear of Federal reprisals for aiding and abetting just for dosing.

Let The Dosing Begin!!

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.
