New Cannabis Coach’s Question:
What makes working with medicinal cannabis so unique?
Working with medicinal cannabis is unique because it offers patients a powerful choice in their healing process. Unlike pharmaceutical approaches, where patients often have limited options, medical cannabis allows individuals to choose the type of healing experience they want to have. This choice is particularly important when it comes to the different levels of cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD, found in cannabis.
For those who wish to engage cognitive changes as part of their healing process, a THC-dominant type of cannabis may be preferred. THC is known for its psychoactive effects, which can include altered perception, mood changes, and an overall sense of euphoria. These cognitive changes can be beneficial because the altered state of consciousness can be used to explore and connect with the body’s innate intelligence. Many people, especially those dealing with stubborn and chronic conditions have found that the very signs and symptoms of their illness are an internal demand for change but the demand often remains hidden from consciousness like behind a veil. In that THC-induced psychoactivity has been used by many as a means to lift that veil and make the demand more conscious. This can accelerate healing and assist in divorcing the word chronic from what ails you.
On the other hand, there are individuals who may want to avoid changes in cognition but still benefit from the therapeutic properties of cannabis. In this case, a CBD-dominant type of cannabis would be more suitable. CBD does not produce changes in cognitions as THC does. Instead, CBD produces a gentle uplift in mood along with a host of other beneficial and therapeutically relevant effects. CBD is well known for its potential anti-inflammatory, analgesic, and anxiolytic properties, making it a popular choice for those seeking relief without feeling “high.”
The importance of this choice lies in the fact that every individual’s needs and preferences are unique. By having the ability to choose between different types of cannabis experiences, patients can tailor their treatment to suit their specific goals and circumstances. This personalized approach can lead to better outcomes and improved overall well-being for those seeking medicinal cannabis as part of their healthcare journey.
