Medical marijuana has been a game changer for people with conditions like insomnia, anxiety and chronic pain. Why properties make it such a powerful antidote? How do you use it without getting high on it? Why is correct dosing so critical? On this episode, The Medical Marijuana Expert, Dr. Rachna Patel joins us to discuss her work.

You have to use medical marijuana within certain parameters to get the benefits of it but not the adverse effects. -Dr Rachna Patel

Takeaways

  1. For patients with heart disease, too much marijuana can actually increase your heart rate and exacerbate underlying conditions.
  2. You don’t have to have marijuana on a daily basis because it gets stored in the fat cells of your body.  
  3. People who experience lot of pain have more cannabinoid receptors. These help your body hamper pain signals.

At the start of the show, Dr. Rachna shared how she got started, and how her frustration with opiate addiction and overdoses led her to her work with medical marijuana. Next, she shared on the conditions she most commonly treats, as well as the people who shouldn’t use marijuana. We also discussed how marijuana affects sleep and concentration levels. Towards the end of the show, Dr. Rachna shared how she’s taking her business virtual.

We also discussed;

  • The cumulative build-up effect of marijuana
  • How marijuana affects the emotional processing of pain
  • Marijuana and its connection to increased cognition

Chronic pain, anxiety and insomnia are the most common conditions that medical marijuana treats. These are also the conditions for which pharmaceutical medications are most prescribed. This means that if the use of medical marijuana became more widespread, it could potentially replace all of those medications. This could literally wean millions of Americans off addictive and lethal opiates, and this would completely transform the current medical system. Marijuana has a biphasic effect, too little won’t do anything and too much will make your pain worse. That’s why it’s so important to get the dosing on point, so that your intake falls within the optimal dosing range. Ultimately, you want to fall in the therapeutic window so you’re not experiencing side effects.
