Webinars Featuring Dr. Terel Newton

Your Guide to Medical Marijuana Dosing

Overview by Medical Marijuana Treatment Clinics of Florida

Medical Marijuana is used to treat a variety of lifestyle conditions. In Florida, the Office of Medical Marijuana Use outlines the rules and regulations for the State Medical Marijuana program.

The goal is relief with minimal side-effects (intoxication). For medical cannabis, this means that less is typically more. For most cannabis consumers, gradually increasing their dose will at first result in stronger effects; but after a certain point – tolerance(unique to each individual)

See Also from MMTCFL:

What does the endocannabinoid system have to do with cannabis? It has everything to do with the order in which scientists discovered the different molecules. 

Cannabinoid receptors, the locks attached to cells in our bodies, were only discovered because researchers were trying to understand how plant-based cannabinoids (phyto-cannabinoids) like THC interact with the body. So they were named cannabinoid receptors, after the main chemicals that activates them.

Materials from the Webinar

“Cytokines are signaling proteins that ultimately recruit inflammation to happen. Cytokines will trigger specific immune cells to release inflammation or actually even reduce inflammation, given the right circumstances. […] CBD actually modulates the cytokine production.”
