“medical Marijuana Has Two Components, Thc And Cbd.

Laszol Mechtler, Director of DENT Cannabis Clinic in Buffalo. Currently, there are 29 states that allow medical marijuana as treatment and 26 states are approved to treat PTSD as a qualifying condition. In New York State, more than 17,000 patients receive medical marijuana from a licensed medical professional. It’s used to treat serious illnesses like cancer, Lou Gehrig’s disease and most recently, chronic pain. Under this new legislation, veterans and anyone suffering from PTSD  would be able to use medical marijuana as treatment. “Medical marijuana has two components, Medical marijuana THC and CBD. The CBD component helps with sleeping, helps with anxiety, helps individuals react to stress,” said Dr.Mechtler. Dr. Mechtler says while this bill is a good step, research is still underway and could take years to see the results. “I would say this is the best option for now, but I have no proof of that just because I’ve seen patients that swear by it, is not enough. so you’re right, the research has to be done.” Roger Woodworth has been diagnosed with PTSD for nearly 10 years.
