*CBD Improves Treatment Options for TBI, CTE*
Dr. Rachna Patel works in her practice with medical marijuana since 2012. She step-by-step walks patients through how to use medical marijuana for their specific medical condition. This episode helps clarify the use of CBD from marijuana without getting high off of it, without getting addicted to it, and without smoking it.
CBD is different than THC. For an excellent video on how this works: https://youtu.be/jznQfMj9RWM
She speaks from the experience of having treated thousands of patients and having thoroughly reviewed the medical research on marijuana. I invited her for this interview to help understand therapeutic implications and her work with CBD, especially as indicated for pain treatment issues in the context of the current opiate crisis.
