Mini Cannabis Update and Pigs Flying
Sophie has been struggling this week, right through the full moon and beyond. We've added THCa to her medical marijuana regime and have refrained from another Onfi wean. That sentence sounds almost like a foreign language, doesn't it? Last night I spoke with our fantastic Dr. Goldstein who had heard from a few other patients that the newest batch of Charlotte's Web has a lower ratio of CBD to THC, and she suggested the drop might be part of the reason why Sophie is having increased seizures. So far, the best reaction to Charlotte's Web, for Sophie, has been the 28:1 - 32:1 oil, and the one she's using right now is 21:1. We're waiting to see whether we can get a higher ratio, and I have a feeling that that will do the trick.
It's more interesting to me than anything else -- this tinkering and observation of this fantastic new medicine for Sophie. I have a good amount of faith that we'll figure it out, and Sophie will be on her way again to seizure freedom.
I know this blog has been weighty of late -- the Blog of Misery, one of my friends told me -- but I actually feel pretty positive about Charlotte's Web and the stellar cast of characters who are making it happen. I saw that Florida's Bozo of a governor actually signed a medical marijuana bill into law today.
Look out, folks. Pigs are flying!
