In the past few days I have been following a 59 y/o woman with severe post op gum surgery pain. An infection had set in and her pain, despite opiates, was over the top. She was not able to speak a word and could barely swallow her saliva.

She started with a 1:1 extract at a dose of 7 mg THC and 7 mg CBD in a CO2 extracted coconut oil blended extract. Within minutes, her pain was mostly gone and she is feeling much better on the extract.

This AM, she came by to share her experience. I am asking her to switch to a wide ratio extract with very minimal THC, to see if she gets the same relief. We have seen patients with substantial relief from dental pain with CBD alone.

I will report on the update. Remember, as CBD is anti-bacterial, it just must be a great medicine for dental and gingival pain.

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.
