Ask A Doctor – Chronic Pain And CBD – Thursday 7th December – 1pm EST

December 04, 2017

This week’s ‘Ask a Doctor’ session is an extra special one, which comes to you following the Facebook poll we carried out. A majority of our community members said they wanted to learn more about treating chronic pain issues with CBD, and what the best way to do that is.

Dr Zachar’s intro for this week’s discussion:

“Pain is now considered the “5th vital sign” after temperature, blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory rate. According to an ABC news poll, 19% of adults in the U.S.A. suffer from chronic pain. Chronic pain is frustratingly hard to treat and opioids, which are highly addictive, are often used. CBD is a safe, effective, and non-addictive alternative.”

Questions to be answered and discussed:

  • What is pain?
  • What is the difference between opioids and CBD in the treatment of pain?
  • How can CBD work, yet be non-addictive?
  • What kind of pain can CBD control?

To join the conversation, and have the chance to ask Dr Zachar your questions directly, please go to the CBD Testers ‘Ask A Doctor’ group on Facebook.

Cannabis policy changes in Africa are welcome. But small producers are the losers by Clemence Rusenga

Cannabis is a drug crop with a long history in Africa. Alongside coca and opium poppy, it has been subjected to international control for nearly a century. The International Opium Convention of 1925 institutionalised the international control system and extended the scope of control to cannabis. In 1961 a new international convention was adopted to […]

University of Sydney to Offer Free Cannabis Testing by Johnny Green

The University of Sydney is launching a fairly robust study in an attempt to, as the university describes it, “investigate cannabis consumption, behaviours, and attitudes among users.” Part of the study involves offering free, anonymous cannabis testing for people that cultivate their own cannabis in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT). Cannabis was decriminalized in 2020 in the […]
