Dr. Stein, I don’t want to get high. I’m interested in cannabis therapy but I do not want to get high. I have a job. I have kids. I have to drive.
Join me today and we will discuss this common concern. Patients that are interested with cannabis therapy need to know that they can still function at a high level and still use this therapy.
Hi. I’m Dr. Dan Stein, a board-certified neurologist and medical cannabis expert.
We use cannabis every day to help patients with a variety of conditions. These individuals are moms and dads, doctors and lawyers, and all manner of folks that need to do their thing. If they’re high, if they’re stoned, if they’re impaired, they won’t be able to function at their job or with their family.
Fortunately, we can design cannabis therapy now to provide symptom relief without causing impairment. This is super important and it’s only because we have growers and processors that are creating cannabis products, selling them at the dispensary and allowing us to design specific balance of the cannabinoids to provide relief without intoxication. How do we do that?
Well, we measure out the amount of THC and CBD. Those are the two main cannabinoid molecules and make sure that the balance provides an effect that’s helpful without causing impairment.
Most of the products that people get on the black market or on the open market are very, very high in THC and are likely to cause impairment in new users.
Certainly in patients that have experience with cannabis, higher amounts of THC are well-tolerated and that has to do with a condition called tolerance and we could talk about that some more another time. But for now, I want you all to know that using the proper balance of CBD and THC allows us to provide a formula for therapy that results in symptomatic relief without intoxication or impairment.
