Happy August, and it is hot! Please stay calm, cool and hydrated. Speaking of things getting hot, there is heat in the cannabis industry as state regulators continue to adjust the flow of this market. Beginning July 1st, all cannabis products must be tested for purity and potency. New packaging rules allow only 100 milligrams per edible, but tinctures can contain up to 1000mgs. Medical clients can access up to 2000mgs per bottle, though most are not that strong. Holistic Caring will simplify what you need to know as clients need higher levels of cannabinoids for serious illnesses.
When it comes to dosing, sometimes less is more! I just had a nice conversation with a client who was doing fine with her dosing for pain and anxiety…but we set her plan 3 months ago, and she hadn’t considered down shifting. I called just to check in and say hello, and she told me she was really tired. When we discussed her dose, I told her she didn’t need that much anymore, and to cut it in half and move to a higher CBD dose in the morning to control the inflammation without THC. The body resets itself once you get good quality cannabinoids to supplement the endocannabinoid system. We don’t realize it, but we need less. Every couple of months, ask yourself if you still need as much medicine as you’re taking, odds are you do not.
As a final note, keep your cool with your doctor and be open about using cannabis as medicine. More physicians are open to these discussions and CBD can cause trigger side effects from other RX. Cannabis is medicine, and needs to be treated as such – and a final RX note; we are on ‘FDA watch’ to learn how Epidiolex will be scheduled. The UK company, GW Pharmaceuticals will begin marketing their 20:1 whole plant CBD tincture in September as cannabis medicines are finally accepted in mainstream America.
We are getting to the tipping point of American acceptance for cannabis as medicine, and it is great news for all of those suffering from chronic illness. Without cannabinoids, we are stuck. With cannabinoids there is healing!
