Today on Discover Marijuana, we tackle one of the bigger questions in the Medical Cannabis space: is marijuana addictive? In short: no, cannabis is not addictive, but it’s a bit more complicated than that. Follow along as Tim, Blake, and guest host Josh get into it.
With the rise of the opioid epidemic and many turning to Medical Cannabis for pain relief, we are often asked if Medical Marijuana has the same addictive qualities that opioids do. The short answer is no: marijuana, cannabis, weed, Mary Jane, or whatever you’d like to call it is not addictive like opioids. It is still quite intoxicating at moderate-to-high doses and should be treated with caution.
We know that medical cannabis is new to most of us and that many of us have questions. Even though CBD has been widely accepted across the country, many are still left wondering about it. Discover Marijuana is all about getting you the information you need to dispel the myths and allow you to know the options you have when looking into plant-based medicine.
Tim Pickett, a Utah QMP and founder of https://dev.utahmarijuana.org, meets with patients daily to recommend medical cannabis. Having a certain CBD dosage on hand as you ease into this treatment is highly recommended, especially if you are unfamiliar or made uncomfortable by the euphoric head high that comes with cannabis. CBD will help to tap that feeling down a bit.
Your other host, Blake Smith, CSO of http://zionmedicinal.com, a Utah CBD and cannabis company, has studied cannabis and the endocannabinoid system for years, and it shows. While Tim takes over how to use CBD, THC, and loads of other cannabinoids to help different ailments, Blake will explain WHY CBD works for Parkinson’s, pain, seizures, etc. for a full spectrum view of your treatment. We believe this will help patients take control of their own healthcare — something that hasn’t been possible in many other areas.
