Dosage & Epilepsy
Description: Cannabis can be considered to be safe when it comes to treating patients. The standard dosage is 2 to 10 milligrams. When prescribing medical marijuana for chronic pain, doctors look for a CBD to THC ratio as high as possible. Doctors are hopeful that high-dose CBD will help with refractory epilepsy particularly in children.
It’s time for science and academic institutions across the world to recognize the importance of cannabis and enable it to become credible and useful to targeted populations. Just as it took time for opium, morphine, fentanyl, etc. to become widely used, it will also be a while for cannabis to gain recognition.
Although cannabis can potentially be a replacement for opioid-based medication, you can’t just start to take cannabis one day and stop opioids the next day. More research is needed on how to integrate cannabis from a pathway perspective so it's safe to wean patients off of their opioids with the utilization of cannabis.
