    Doctor shares experience about cannabinoid therapy
    Dr. Verbora is not an ordinary doctor. He was interested in cannabinoid therapy after completing his family medicine training at the University of Toronto. This progressive medico shared his experience helping patients with cannabinoid treatments with Lift News.

    Patients are initially nervous about cannabis.
    Dr. Verbora treats patients of all ages. The youngest are babies of only one year old, and their oldest patient is 102. As you might expect, some of the older patients are nervous when they first get prescribed cannabis. They are confused because they were told that cannabis was a dangerous drug. Helping these patients to overcome their fears takes a lot of education and explains.

    Misconceptions about cannabinoid therapy
    Many people think you can get "high" from cannabinoid therapy. However, Dr. Verbora, that's not true at all. Low doses of THC will not have psychoactive effects. CBD, a cannabinoid that does not cause a rush. Dr. Verbora says that CBD is very effective as a treatment for many conditions.

    No need to smoke it
    People also believe that you need to smoke medical cannabis. This is not true The clinic does not recommend smoking as a means of administering cannabinoids. Dr. Verbora says he prefers to use medicinal cannabis oils and sometimes suggests using an evaporator to fine-tune the dosage.

    No need to get addicted
    The other big misconception is that you become addicted to marijuana and cannabinoid therapy. There might be a possibility, but compared to other medicines for pain, alcohol or tobacco, cannabis has a much lower addiction or dependency rate.

    Dr. Verbora says that the fear of addiction is unfortunate as many patients experience the benefits of cannabinoid therapy, but they are afraid to use it daily. As a result, you never get the full benefit of the treatment.

    Shift in perception
    Some doctors are struggling to accept the medical value of the cannabis plant because they claim to believe that it is a recreational medicine. More and more doctors are becoming more open-minded. Dr. Verbora says that after prescribing cannabinoid therapies, they often have more confidence in their benefits.

    He stresses the fact that people should educate themselves about cannabis through a reputable source. Family doctors or medical specialists can refer patients to him, and he hopes he can serve. People will eventually understand cannabinoid therapy better. Opiates and benzodiazepines are more stigmatized than cannabis within the next 5 to 10 years.

    Medical cannabis clinics in the future
    Dr. Michael Verbora sees a time when a critical body of information through research and education makes undeniable benefits in terms of canola. He is confident that the research will provide evidence supporting cannabinoid therapy. Soon, no one will be able to ignore the real benefits of cannabinoids, and medical cannabis will become a mainstream therapeutic option.

    It seems certain that Dr. Vebora's predictions will come true. Already the picture of medical cannabis is changing. People use cannabinoid therapies and they remain productive members of society. As more doctors and patients open up, as cannabinoid therapy has helped them, the hippie image fades into the background to be replaced by the fresh, family-friendly cannabinoid.
