INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS CBD AND POSSIBLY THC-A??

I have had a number of patients come in with complaints related to Interstitial Cystitis. IC is a fairly common problem in both men and women and is essentially an inflammatory condition of the bladder and at times the urethra. Treatment is not great and there are many patients out there suffering with urinary frequency and urgency. Often catheters or diapers are required. Clearly it is a serious issue without great therapy.

Here is a link to a few dozen articles showing the presence of both CB1 and CB2 receptors in the bladder. So, it would seem that cannabinoid therapy would be worth a try.

So, far, I have had some good responses with modest doses of CBD. I want to now try adding THC-A to their regimens.

So, if any of you out there want a trial of CBD and THC-A, give me a ring.
