Full Spectrum CBD Oil vs Opioids

Why natural medicine can win the war on opioids.

Pain Care Approach´╗┐
Dr. Wallace shared that his approach for treating patients with chronic pain who are currently using opioids has been to wean them off of opioids first, and then to introduce medical cannabis. His aim in moving to the medical cannabis is to continue to provide pain relief for the patient, but with fewer side effects and more functionality. In some cases, he advises patients to begin cannabis as they wean off their opioid doses to help manage any withdrawal effects.

Always consult a physician.

It is not wise to use a product without full transparency. Insist on a verifiable full profile COA with any hemp product. Identify the testing lab with a header on the lab work. Do not accept a lab report without identifying language and contact information. Identify that COA with a correlating batch number.
