As we have had more experience with THC-A extracts, we are finding more quite positive results. We have now had experience with seizure patients, cervical and other dystonic diseases and parkinson’s disease.

THC-A is not psychoactive and is available pretty much anywhere there is old fashioned “weed”. There have been doubts upon the central nervous system by THC-A, but it seems quite clear that it does cross the blood brain barrier and is helpful with a number of central nervous system diseases.

An enzyme that breaks down Acetylcholinesterase (an enzyme that metabolized Acetylcholine, a transmitter that helps with neuromuscular disorders, is involved with both PD and Dystonia. In fact, the national Dystonia Association just joined the Michael J Fox Parkinson’s Foundation. I presume, not at accident at all. These patients have similar, in some respects, diseases. Both diseases are involved with the metabolism of acetylcholine, both are issues in the part of the brain called the “Substantia Nigra”, both are muscle movement disorders and at least with some early patients, both seem to respond well to THC-A. In fact, their response is much better than that of CBD.

Any thoughts??

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.
