The aim of this study was to test the hypothesis that cannabidiol could reduce daily perceived stress among people experiencing elevated levels of COVID-19–related perceived stress, in addition to levels of nonspecific anxiety and distress.
Data continue to emerge on the use of cannabinoids for pain management, narcotic substitution, and heroin withdrawal. Building on previous studies, I present a case demonstrating the effectiveness of dose-controlled, oral cannabinoids to rapidly remove prescription opioids using cannabis substitution therapy.
Medical cannabis may play an important role in the management of fibromyalgia and associated symptoms of depression and anxiety. Further studies are needed to support the use of medical cannabis in patients with fibromyalgia.

We describe a case of a 27-year-old man with an 8-year history of severe OUD achieving successful transition to naltrexone-based abstinence maintenance therapy following cessation of methadone using an intervention of highly purified, high-dose CBD.

Puffin Hemp has a patent-pending liposome manufacturing technology that is used…
We present a case report of a patient who was guided through 2 postsurgical opioid wean programs. The opioid wean after the first surgery did not include medical cannabis whereas the opioid wean after the second surgery did; the difference in symptoms is striking.
