I used to smoke marijuana daily. I stopped due to a changing life style and haven't smoked in a couple weeks. I need to know the fastest way to detox?

The truth is that as a Board Certified Addictionologist i can assure you marijuana is and addictive substance. You are to be commended for taking this step on your own congratulations ...Read more

Plan to use "permanent renewer" detox kit to detox myself from marijuana. Will anti depressants interact with it? I take 10mg of cipralex daily.

What's in it?: I can't find any information about the contents of this product, so any potential conflicts with your medication are unknown. I did find that it costs $80 canadian dollars though. I will share that no such product has been proven to rid your body of thc . . . So it seems an expensive experiment. Best way to not conflict with your medication is not to use marijuana at all. ...Read more

Is marijuana a good remedy for more than cancer side effects?

Is marijuana a good remedy for more than cancer side effects?

No: Marijuana has limited utility in certain kinds of cancer pain and nausea, and even there, other effective alternatives exist. As a medical agent, marijuana gets much more press than it deserves. The overwhelming message is that marijuana use is dangerous and that overall in most patients, its side effects are more harmful than its few benefits. ...Read more

How do I go about getting approved marijuana in treatment of ibs?

Unlikely: That is not a good solution. Underlying anxiety needs to be treated with antianxiety medication or antidepression medication. Coping with problems is an important skill as well as dealing with drug addiction. Make an appointment with your doctor to figure out how you can cope with your underlying problems. ...Read more

Is smoking marijuana during radio iodine treatment safe?

Is smoking marijuana  during radio iodine treatment safe?

Unknown: If you are being treated for thyroid cancer, i would not suggest using marijuana, since it does have some effects of suppressing immunity. There is no evidence that it would interfere with the radio-iodine or make it work any less well, but i would abstain for several weeks to be on the safe side. If you are being treated for hyperthryoidism or grave's disease, i don't think it is a problem. ...Read more
