A neurologist speaking at a CNA monthly meeting said, “Neuropathy is the poster child for Medical Cannabis.” The CNA supports the use of Cannabis for medical purposes, we believe it can save people’s lives, give them a level of normalcy back, and in some cases help them lower doses or eliminate of prescription medications. This should only be done under a doctor’s supervision of course! There is a problem with it though, there are so many strains, so may ways to take, and every person is different. There is said to be 10% of people for whom it doesn’t work at all, and another 10% who are at risk of becoming addicted. So, if you are considering trying it the best things to do are educate your self, find a Cannabis clinic with experience and good Cannabis educators.
