    A Researcher by the name of Ethan Russo has some interesting theories into Endocannabinoid Deficiency

    ((((((soul)))))) ~

    Thank you so much for sharing these sites. I just sent the links to a dear friend, who has IBS and other autoimmune, inflammatory conditions, with the hope that she will try MMJ and benefit from it. I've also been trying to persuade my aunt to try CBD and THC oils with my uncle, who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimer's. I will send these links to her to back up all of the other links I've sent to her.

    I know that it is helping my husband with RA and cancer. I started taking CBD oil a few weeks ago, a very low dose of 10 mg/day, and I feel better, and would probably improve if I increased the dose. But, to quote Sunshine, I don't want to "drain my wallet!" Still, it's worth it, when it works!

    Love & Light,

    Good article on use of MMJ decreases opioid use . No one has ever died from MJ overdose because they are no Cannibis receptors in brainstem and brain centers that control Life functions.( But they can become psychotic of course.)

    It seems like, if there were a pure CBD dose, and a pure THC dose, in pill form, the dose could be adjusted in exact increments, adjusted by the patients response to a certain dose of each.

    Say each dose of CBD, and THC, comes in 5, 10, 15mg, etc. doses. Then could be adjusted, say a 15mg CBD, and 20mg THC, and either could be adjusted until the desired effect is reached.

    Theoretically that makes sense to me. The pure THC is pill form. The Pill form of MMJ is a rougher ride than the sublingual delivery route. My doc rec against it except when needed for convenience.

    Plus I can titrate it to a fraction of a mg. , as opposed to full Mg incremental titration or 5 mg increments.
