Medical Marijuana – Interview with Dr Rachna Patel
Medical Marijuana (Cannabis) has recently been legalised in Australia, and in 2017 some GPs and specialists will be able to prescribe it. It is still uncertain what conditions Cannabis will be prescribed for, however looking to the countries which are already using it we can see that there a lot of potential conditions it can help with.
Chronic pain, anxiety, inflammatory bowel conditions, post traumatic stress disorder and nausea are some of the potential conditions which it may be approved for.
There are a lot of uncertainties that people will have about this, and to answer my own curiosities as well as provide some information for you, I have asked these questions of an expert in Medical Marijuana – Dr Rachna Patel. I wanted to know how it could be used safely, what sort of research is out there, how you can get benefits from medical marijuana without getting high, how best to take medical marijuana, and are there conditions which medical marijuana shouldn’t be used for.
