Sufferers are going to endure as a outcome.  All current information proves that healthcare cannabis is a user precise expertise.  The very same medicine will impact ten men and women differently.  The very same dose of medicine will impact ten men and women differently.  Patients with a metabolic challenge might demand 20-50 occasions as a great deal healthcare cannabis as a patient with a typical metabolic function.  Science does not have answers for why there is a substantial variance in the quantity of cannabis that a patient need to consume for preferred effects.  The finish outcome of the OMMU setting dosing recommendations will be a additional restriction on access to healthcare cannabis.  The only fair way to treat dosing, is to leave it up to the doctor to identify what the patient requires are.
