California Medical Marijuana Recommendations
Dr. Vollen gave us helpful background on THC and CBD. She advised us on how to consume and dosing.
My mom’s pain was cured on a very low dose but even better was her blood pressure. Over the years my mom has been put on dozens of blood pressure medications. Most of them failed to work usually while producing nasty side effects. One caused a dangerous spike in her Potassium levels that almost led to a hospitalization but no discernible effect on blood pressure.
As a result before her stroke my mom’s blood pressure was out of control. At the hospital they got it to ~145/90 with three different medications. We were still seeing spikes up to 160/110 on occasion. The low dose of marijuana has brought this down to ~115/70 with very rare readings (usually if we forget a dose) back up closer to 140.
We’re ecstatic. My mom’s stroke risk has plummeted, she’s not in pain and she won’t have to try any more medications and their scary side effects. As for the marijuana the only bad thing is a small increase in appetite.”
