Michael Verbora, who is a physician, has shared his experience and knowledge regarding the treatment of patients with cannabis. According to him, he has prescribed cannabis to almost 4000 patients so far who are also benefitted through this treatment. He explained that there are different versions of the cannabis plants. Some of these contain high THC and low CBD, some contain high CBD and low THC, and vice versa. Being a psychoactive compound, THC can produce a high/euphoria. It can help with muscle spasms, anxiety, insomnia, poor appetite, nausea, neuropathic pain, mood, and sleep as well. On the other hand, CBD is not a psychoactive compound and it doesn’t make a person high. Instead, it works on inflammation, chronic pain, muscle spasms, nausea, and epilepsy etc.
Our body has a very effective system for managing a number of functions and this system is known as endocannabinoid system. CBD and THC works with this system to produce various effects. However, they require the CB receptors to work in our body. You can see the distribution of CB1 and CB2 receptors in this video. Michael also talked about the difficulties with cannabis evidence as well as the issues with it. To prove his arguments, he gave references from a number of research studies on cannabis.
After the basic research, evidences, and conclusions, he progressed towards how MS attacks and how does it links with cannabis or CBD. There are hundreds of symptoms which shows that a person is suffering through MS, such as numbness, headaches, fatigue, itching, muscle spasms, pains, and seizures etc.
There are different methods of taking CBD products among which you can choose anyone for you. these methods include taking the raw juice CBD, ingestion (edibles e.g. CBD gummy bears), smoking, vaporizing, sublingual, and topical. He further described these methods into more details to help the viewers in understanding these methods. He gave the most useful insights regarding the cannabis safety and dependence risk. He also talked about the side-effects of cannabis which are very important to learn for every person so that he may keep himself safe from them. For example, the most common side-effects of taking high dosages of cannabis include drowsiness, dizziness, dry mouth, and tachycardia, etc. On the other hand, its less common side effects include nausea, vomiting, mild amnesia, and anxiety, etc.
In the later section of this video, another speaker came and highlighted rest of the useful information regarding the use of cannabis such as the current regulations under ACMPR for cannabis. He also discussed the insurance coverage plans and advocacy steps. In fact, this video contains a bulk of important information from start to end that every one of you must know.
In my opinion, this is a very information and high quality video in which different speakers have given very knowledgeable speeches. The use of slides, graphics, research results, and illustrations have made this video more interesting. Furthermore, they have explained everything in a very detailed and easy to understand way that kept me engaged throughout the video.
