TORTICOLLIS AND THC-A

Torticollis or Cervical Dystonia is a pretty common disorder. There are a number of variants and some very minor cases can present as cervical muscle pain and spasm.

I am very excited by our first two patients with Cervical Dystonia and their amazing responses to THC-A. It seems that THC-A works whenever there is an excessive firing of cholinergic neuro-receptors. I have seen one good response with a Parkinson’s patient and wonder if there will be positive responses with other neuro-muscular disorders.

The benefit took a few days in one patient and was nearly immediate with another. So, if you are going to try it, give it a few days.

Some of these disorders might do very well with simple juicing of raw THC cannabis. No psychoactivity.
