FLOWERS NEED TIME TO BLOOM
Patience is the key rule for treatment with medical cannabis:
The internet is full of information about cannabis, but much of it does not match the instructions that the patient receives from the pharmacist. Most declarations do not chime with actual expectations and therefore patients assume that the treatment is not working and decide to stop it.
Treatment with medical cannabis is a process – every one of us has receptors in our bodies that detect the cannabinoids from the cannabis plant and react to them.
The secret is to start slowly and cautiously, with a low dose, and be patient.
Therefore, it is vitally important to have someone to provide support, assistance, training, and adjustment of the treatment based on your needs and changing medical condition.
“You ate pepper – drink juice”
This sentence from Sesame Street will help you if you experience unpleasant side effects. We recommend that you drink juice with vitamin C, such as orange, cranberry or grapefruit juice, or chew some black peppercorns – they will neutralize the psychoactive effects of THC.
If you experience no relief after 20-30 minutes, seek medical assistance (your doctor, the nearest clinic or A&E).
One of the most common side effects is the loss of short-term memory, although it is interesting to note that cannabis can also help with long-term memory in certain doses and under certain conditions. The purpose of treatment with medical cannabis is to improve the patient’s daily functioning and improve their quality of life, and we therefore recommend using various tricks to remind you of things you have to do and important matters that may be forgotten. Use a smartphone, calendar, notes, and messages to improve your memory and take responsibility.
