Determining which cannabinoid to use: Many have found that CBD from Hemp has supplemented their lives in various ways, others find that Cannabis with THC does the trick. There's various constituents in these plants included the new kid on the block CBG.
Many, including those in industries, need a guide through their experience and that's why we're here - to help you find your path. Whether you have a simple question or a complex need - Cannabinoid Advice is here to help you maneuver through the complex cannabinoids and find the protocol that works for you.
Everyone is different so gaining the right consultant is imperative.
In 1964, Mechoulam discovered THC, the cannabinoid most famous for its intoxicating effect. The find in turn led to the discovery of the endocannabinoid system (ECS). This has led to a plethora of medical professionals moving towards the Cannabis and Hemp spaces - and has led to a wider acceptance of Cannabinoid Medicine for patients.
This migration is slow but steadily increasing as nurses and doctors learn more and more by the day. Consultations to both healthcare and cannabis/hemp industry professionals are available on a case by case basis. Please make contact to learn more - or visit the Global Cannabinoid Research Center, which Mike founded, to gain more knowledge.
Why online advice can be dangerous - especially for consumers:
As patients attempt to keep up with the flow of information in the world of cannabis millions of discussions are started daily online - and this is a good thing. But all to often advice is given without the type of information necessary to determine what would benefit someone vs. possibly hinder them.
A few of the things I like to know before doling out information on what cannabinoid concoction and protocol will work best I need to know a few things - and the list isn't so short that these important questions can be answered in a social media exchange. For example:
1.) Complete diagnostic: “Cancer” or “Epilepsy” isn’t a diagnosis. Type of Cancer, Type of Epilepsy for example. I must know the name of ALL diagnostics – not just the one you’re inquiring about using cannabinoids with or wanting to create a protocol for. Plant medicine effects people in various ways so quickly we can see the issue with 'quick advice' given in internet exchanges.
2.) Any other complications medically including all allergies are necessary – including allergies to medicines and over the counter drugs.
3.) A complete list of all pharmaceuticals, dosages, and when taken is a must. Without this information there's no way to know if you're harming or helping with 'advice'. Many gain vital information online but sometimes it's not information that pertains to their unique self.
4.) History of Cannabinoid use is also a must. Has the patient used THC, CBD, CBG etc. before? When? How did they respond to cannabinoids. Details on this are necessary to give accurate information that allows the highest level of effective treatment.
5.) History of drug abuse or addiction, alcoholism, trauma, etc.
6.) Psych history if willing to share - in many states this is considered separate from 'medical'
7.) Make your inquiry specific if you’re a patient in need. Executive patients – take your time as I’m charging you like your mechanic would. I’d think your body is more important than your car.
In order to adequately answer someone's questions about plant medicine use, type that's used, amount to start with on dosing and more - one must know who's asking and in detail.

With Cannabis being declared as an 'essential item' during the rush of 2020 there's been an increase in individuals who use THC and have built a tolerance that has became unmanageable. This is one of the top issues that we work with.
Keeping a balanced endocannabinoid system is a must whether it's done through the use of various foods and exercise or via inhalation or ingestion of a myriad of plant elements. Many that use THC don't reach out to the Hemp side of things and others using CBD don't reach out to the THC side of things.
Either way Balance is a must and without it you're heading for what's known as a Bell Curve Effect. This is when you have an increased intake and decreased effectiveness.
The good news - you don't need to quit THC - instead learn a few ways to gain Endocannabinoid Balance which we'd love to teach you!
