Podcast Show 189: Medical Marijuana – CBD
Legalization of medical marijuana opened the door for safe pain control just as the opioid crisis swooped in. For patients with chronic pain issues, people like Dr. Rachna Patel, doctor of osteopathy and author of the new book, CBD Oil Solution –Treat Chronic Pain, Anxiety, Insomnia, and More-without the High are life savers. Sue, Patrick and Candace reflect on how CBD in hemp/cannabis has made a difference in our lives and those around us.

Dr. Rachna Patel
Dr. Rachna Patel has been treating patients with CBD oil and medical marijuana since 2012 from her clinic in California. After earning her medical degree from Touro University, she spent years training as an emergency medicine doctor. Frustrated with the ER’s protocols in treating pain, she moved into the field of medical marijuana treatment. In 2014, she started her own practice so that she could offer people care they otherwise wouldn’t have access to.
