Medical Marijuana and recent capabilities

Recent entitling constraints being contemplated  for Medical Marijuana

DRUGS WITHOUT HIGH, controversial is the extract from the hemp plant known as CBD(cannabidiol) because this component of marijuana has nominal, if any, intoxicating properties. Marijuana itself has more than 100 active components. THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) is the chemical which generates the “high” that goes along with marijuana consumption. CBD-dominant strains have little or no THC, so patients report very little if any alteration in consciousness.

For patients of Connecticut, The Commissioner of Consumer Protection has increased the monthly allotment of medical marijuana for registered medical marijuana patients to 3.5 ounces per month. Patients who have an allotment that has been restricted or expanded by a certifying practitioner will remain unchanged. A dispensary may dispense a portion of a qualifying patient’s monthly transaction limit not to exceed 2.5 ounces and may dispense the remaining portion at any time except that no qualifying patient or primary caregiver shall receive more than their approved monthly quantity in a one-month period.

(A patient may only register for a medical marijuana certificate if he or she is a Connecticut resident being treated for a debilitating medical condition by a Connecticut-licensed physician, physician assistant or advanced practice registered nurse.)
While every state has laws dictating the use of medical marijuana, more than two thirds of U.S. states and the District of Columbia have actually legalized it for medical treatments and more are considering bills to do the same. Yet while many people are using marijuana, the FDA has only approved it for treatment of two rare and severe forms of epilepsy, Dravet syndrome and Lennox-Gastaut syndrome.

Benefits:

Patients experience many benefits of CBD, from relieving insomnia, anxiety, spasticity, and pain to treating potentially life-threatening conditions such as epilepsy. One particular form of childhood epilepsy called Dravet syndrome is almost impossible to control but responds dramatically to a CBD-dominant strain of marijuana called Charlotte’s Web.
