I did not know much about CBD before this talk. I am now more knowledgable about THC and CBD, their by-products, the relationship between them, and professional use in the geriatric population.

THC and CBD are fairly popular among my patients with rheumatoid/osteoarthrits, polymyalgia, intractable migraine and neuropathy syndrome.... but also largely as a sleep hypnotic with some good results.
