The CBD and THC Wellness Consult is designed for individuals ages 18 and over who would like to learn how CBD or THC can improve their health or treat a medical condition. This is a one-time consult with Dr. Cynthia Kardesch, PALM’s board certified Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Physician, who is certified in CBD and medicinal marijuana application. CBD is used to treat many different medical ailments such as anxiety, sleep issues, inflammation, some neurologic problems, and pain. THC can be used to treat ailments such as pain, psychiatric conditions, muscle spasms and spasticity, low appetite, glaucoma, insomnia, nausea due to chemotherapy, and some neurodegenerative diseases.
It is important to note that CBD will not cause the “high” that may be experienced with other recreational and medical psychoactive drugs. CBD is available in different forms, such as an isolate or full spectrum. Dr. Kardesch will help determine which form may be best for you. THC is psychoactive and is responsible for the “high” experienced when using marijuana. Dr. Kardesch will discuss with you whether CBD or THC or both would be an appropriate option based on your specific health needs.
