I took two of my children to the doctor yesterday, for typical complaints of ear pain, sore throat.
I LOVE their pediatrician.... more than I could ever say. He will meet you in the office on weekends, I can text him anytime, have had to text
pictures of weird rashes and he will always respond. He has ridden with children in the ambulance to the nearest children's hospital, which is over
an hour away. He is the BEST!
But, while there I asked his opinion on medical cannabis. Because, I live in a state where it is only approved for severe seizures. No other
conditions are approved to treat with medical cannabis. He actually had no idea that it was approved here for treating seizures- and said "what good
would it do to help with that?" He has so little knowledge of it, even saying " I think there are really very few conditions it can treat".
I explained to him that I had used it on a trip to CO, to see what it did for my condition, (which I have discussed with him at length, because it is
genetic and I worry about my kids developing it). He seemed interested in my trial with it and the amazing results I had, but then asked "Is it legal
in CO?" He didn't even know that cannabis is 100% legal, medical or recreational, in CO.
I was very, very disappointed that he has such limited knowledge and is so quick to side with the "official" story that cannabis offers no or little
He is still the best pediatrician I could ask for.... I just hope that should I need him on board for this kind of treatment, he will be open to
educating himself more.
