  1. Thanks for this video! I notice that if I smoke marijuana for more than 5 days in a row my anxiety will rise. Do you know if oil or other form of administration would prevent this from happening? I need to treat pain due to lumbar hernia and this might be an option. Thanks.

  2. I've tried about every combination of pain relief regarding CBD use, however, my body reacts to CBD as if it were THC. Could this happen to someone who has gone through 25 different types of surgeries including a gastric bypass & has a long & torturous colon, not to mention knowing the immunome system is located in the small intestine which I understand has been bypassed?? Finally, I suffer from chronic fibromyalgia, chronic sinusitis & recent spinal surgery on C5 & C6 vertebrae which is where the central nervous system is located & am diabetic as well to name just a few. I would really invite any information you might inform me of so I might live some quality of life!!

  3. I find that THC exacerbates my pain it actually makes it hard for me to relegate pain sensations to 'background noise:. I have a feeling of being 'high' at even quite low levels of THC.

  4. MANY HAVE SLEEP ISSUES BECAUSE OF MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCY AND ALSO CAUSES RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME AND MUSCLE PAIN. ASHWAGANDHA WILL HELP YOU SLEEP AS IT BALANCES CORTISOL LEVELS NEEDED TO GO TO SLEEP AND CONTROL ANXIETY TOO.

  5. IF ANYONE HAS PAIN, REMOVE GLUTEN AS IT IS A TOXIN AND HEAL LEAKY GUT WITH L – GLUTAMINE POWDER 2 TIMES A DAY FOR 3 MONTHS. KEFIR IS A MUST TOO AND A GOOD MULTI B VITAMIN, VIT D DROPS AND ZINC DAILY.

  6. Hi, I'm finding your videos very informative and useful. It is very challenging to find the right help for neuropathic pain as most physicians don't know what it is or how to navigate the condition. I am wondering about your thoughts on topical CBD cream and if you would consider doing a video on this subject?

  7. Thank you, Dr. Furlan! Why do you recommend your patients ingest the oils instead of smoking? Are there additional benefits to ingestion? Is it to minimize the risks that come with inhaling smoke?

  8. To my knowledge, at least 10% THC is needed in combination with the CBD content to trigger the full range of benefits in the oral medicine ( hence medical cannabis) — they are synergistic…. like many herbal medicines: the whole plant has a better result than any one extract.

  9. Hi,
    I deal with cervical injury because of am accident three years back. Right now am on medication from last 7 months,and still having pain and headach when I do any work.
    Can smoking weed help me and weed is ban in my country India.
    So can you help me doctor.

  10. thx. this is korea 🙂 which one is more effective for pain? THC, or CBD???

    and is it possible to completly heal & treat?
    or is it just used for stopping pain like drug (cannot treat?) ?

  11. I use pot to sleep, I deal with chronic pain during the day with Tylenol and methocarbamol which does help some. I either mix some powdered buds into my sleepy time tea or take a few puffs then go to bed and sleep from approx. 9-5 am which is what I'm used to. I was getting maybe 2.5 to 3 hours of sleep per night and the doctors refused to help me with a sleep aid. People will find relief from misery one way or another.
