Welcome to Psych4MedicalCannabis!
When I was a teenager, my own experience with recreational marijuana was limited to one bad experience. My first and only time after smoking too much left me paranoid and I immediately realized that smoking cannabis was not for me.
As a psychiatrist with over twenty-five years of experience and a current practice where I often lectured my patients about not smoking cannabis and growingly frustrated by their inability to just stop, I now have realized that I needed to understand more about the relationship between cannabis, mental health and wellness and just what the big deal was.
The big deal is the Endocannabinoid System! Taught sparingly in medical schools and to health practitioners, despite being researched since the early 1970’s, my mind was blown by how little I knew about our bodies endogenous cannabinoid system, it’s receptors and the effects of Endocannabinoid Deficiency. We can Rx ourselves if we pay attention to how our bodies work and what we need.
Let’s take this journey together!
