Recreational Marijuana and CBD: CBD as medicine


DAVID GRELOTTI: CBD is
a fascinating molecule. It has a lot of different
potential activity out there. And so there is a lot of hype
around what you might do. Some of that may turn
out to be very real. Those are the things
that we’re trying to pursue to make
sure that CBD really does find a place
in our armamentarium of medical therapeutics. So we need the controlled
studies for CBD, we need to try CBD as
Dr. Gruber was saying with other derivatives
of cannabis, as well, to see if it’s a combination
of things that works best. We also want to look at the
different ways of administering it. So is inhalation better
than taking it orally, or sublingually? I mean, heck, there are people
even trying suppositories out there. So at the end of the
day, I’m a physician, and I want to kind
of make sure that CBD fits within the whole kind
of treatment portfolio that we have for conditions. So it’s one of
the things that we could do to actually treat a
patient and alleve suffering or cure illness.
