Dr. Terel Newton, MD, Florida Medical Director, Trulieve, Medical Director, Total Pain Relief, LLC and Interventional Pain Consultant
In Florida there are specific conditions where patients may qualify for a medical marijuana recommendation. Of these, the most common conditions are cancer, epilepsy, PTSD, chronic non-malignant pain, and related disorders. While knowledge of the Endocannabinoid System is becoming more commonplace, standard medical education remains deficient in explaining detailed clinical mechanisms of terpenes and cannabinoids. This presentation seeks to bring together the proposed mechanisms of how major terpenes and cannabinoids can improve symptoms and/or disease processes for Florida Qualifying Conditions.
