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 are various constituents in these plants including 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 slowly but steadily increasing as nurses and doctors learn more and more by the day. Mike Robinson, your Cannabis Guide, is also the Founder of the Global Cannabinoid Research Center.
Many are finding that their primary care or specialist isn't quite ready to guide them with Cannabinoids and need alternatives to gain quality information about their Cannabis use.
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. Often the guidance or advice patients gain online from individuals is given without consideration of specific information about a patient. There's such a thing as good advice given to the wrong person.
A few of the things I like to know before doling out information on what cannabinoid concoction and protocol will work best;
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 affects 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'.
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 great detail.
Those looking for guidance should always consider who's giving information to them and whether or not it's specifically meant for them.
We have 3 different levels of Guidance for you.
