The Doctors meet with moms, who say taking very small doses of marijuana, called microdosing, has changed their lives.
Ozzie, a mother of 2 and a business owner, tells us she microdoses every day. She says that the small amounts of cannabis help her manage her anxiety. She says she considers cannabis to be part of her daily health regiment, and she compares it to someone taking St. John's Wart. She tells us she microdoses daily after her children have left for school, which she claims helps her feel more creative, motivated and has helped in the success of her business. "I'm just a generally happier person," Ozzie says of her microdosing.
Alexandra, who is also a mom, says she microdoses to treat her migraine headaches. She tells us that within 15 minutes of taking a small amount, she finds that her headaches begin to clear. She tells us that she feels microdosing allows her to "medicate and still feel in control."
The Doctors also welcome Dr. Dustin Sulak, who treats patients with cannabis, to join the discussion. He claims this type of treatment is "extremely safe" and non-rewarding, meaning there is not a pro-addictive effect and he says it does not send a pleasure signal to the brain. He says this approach is "like a daily supplement" and claims it works to keep healthy people healthy.
Dr. Sulak acknowledges there is no guarantee that mircodosing will promote health, but he says he feels that if the cannabis is reducing stress and enhancing someone's performance that he considers that a "marker of health."
The Doctors and Dr. Sulak stress that microdosing during pregnancy should not occur and if you are considering this type of treatment to consult a physician who is well versed in the subject.
