As more and more people become aware of the potential benefits of Cannabidiol (CBD), there is an increasing hunger for education, credible, science-based information, and reports of first-hand experience.
For those looking for a deeper dive, Forbes Magazine offers a nice compilation of education program options:
For many people, a self-guided approach to CBD will work, and adding a bit into their daily routine’s is adequate. But for anyone with a more serious medical condition or taking prescription drugs for that condition, there is an increasing number online education sources, as well as doctors and nurses who have been taking notes and educating themselves on incorporating CBD into their practices for years.
Dr. Dustin Sulak has treated over 8,000 people since 2011 in his Integrative Health Care clinic in Maine. He has accumulated and presents his patients’ first-hand experience, which can be very helpful to those new to CBD and THC.
For example, some people find an effective dose at 2.5 mg, others may need 500 mg per day or more. Sometimes THCa can be more effective when used in combination with CBD. Fortunately, learning what types of cannabinoids or terpenes might be most helpful for a specific issue, understanding dosage, and finding medical support is getting easier.
