1. I think it’s important to look at research from before cannabis was criminalized too, because before it was criminalized there doesn’t seem to be much research on the “dangers” which I say very loosely. You see a LOT of researcher bias when it comes to these studies, and they never talk to people who’ve been using marijuana for a long time

  2. Consider the source…. -Do you really trust the FDA? The fda has approved of many prescription drugs that have marketed to even children… -drugs that were even recalled and certainly over-prescribed. Seriously, Food Coloring and other toxins in edible trash that is marketed as food (I think usually to the poor) is approved of by the fda. It seems like if one takes a step back, that the fda approves of things that are bad for us and poop on nature…. but the fda will be approving of cbd oil once the powers that already be can own and monopolize that like everything else. If it's government, remember…. -the same government infiltrated our ancestors and forced religion on them. what spiritual practices were that of our ancestors? We need them to find the light. -Furthermore, Would our ancestors know better now than to trust the whole establishment. Government hand in kill, steal, rape, pillage and manipulate… still comes from the same place. No true makeover. Buenas Ondas, Dr.Tracey.

  3. I have severe MS. Marijuana saved my life. I was having 50+ full body spasms every night before I tried it. I'm 5'4" and had gotten down to 95 lbs. because of the nightly workouts. If anyone saw my instant spasm relief they would be amazed. It is truly a miracle herb for many conditions.

  4. Can you make a video on Dystonic Reaction due to the use of antipsychotic medication. My 16 year old son had a Dystonic Reaction to his antipsychotic medication use to treat psychosis related to Schizoaffective Disorder. I think it’s important for to know about this as we were never informed about these kind of reactions

  5. The vast number of terpenes among the different cannabis strains means many individual compounds & synergies between them have vast potential. Given the absence of ANY deaths EVER through recorded history, it deserves a closer look. If our govt had NOT misclassified it as Schedule I, we may already have these answers. Our FDA allows drugs to make billions in profit while outright killing people yet we jail hundreds of thousands for consumption of a non-lethal plant. It's clear who's benefit our govt is working for & it's NOT us!

  6. MMJ works great for pain. I use THC and CBD. I just had a spinal fusion three weeks ago, and it helped me through that surgery. It has also helped me wean off of opioids three different times now (I've had 6 major surgeries in the last eleven years. Please be careful when you talk about pot's usefulness for pain control. They have already pretty much taken our opioids away. I don't want to see the MMJ go too.

  7. I can tell you one thing that's for certain whether the government CONTROLLING agencies like it or not, CBD saved my life quite literally…
    I have severe chronic pain due to 4 bulging discs, sciatica, systemic inflammatory syndrome, PTSD/anxiety, insomnia and my medical issues lead to frequent bouts of what is called "hypertensive crisis". The hypertensive crisis was frequently sending my blood pressure up to 218/108 and on at least 4 occassions I ended up in the ER where they gave me an intravenous ACE inhibitor to bring it back down. This was a scary time in my life! I researched natural ways to lower blood pressure and came across cbd products. Now I had tried tinctures before to not much affect but it is the cbd rich flower and concentrates which had ENORMOUS benefit to not just some but ALL of my ailments! First of all let me tell you how it saved my life… The smokeable/vaporizable cbd flower drops my blood pressure to a VERY healthy and consistent 118/79 and has done so faithfully since starting. I know it is the cbd flower because the very first time I used it I was "in H.T. crisis" at the moment with a resting bp of 181/100 and the CBD dropped my bp within 10 mins to 121/80!
    I have NOT had a single ER visit since starting and my bp remains under perfect control. I have also been able to completely stop using a powerful NSAID called Voltaren which was elevating my liver enzymes and damaging my stomach. The CBD gave me stronger anti-inflammatory benefits than Voltaren did WITHOUT any downsides or organ damage. I was able to stop taking my muscle relaxer "carisoprodol"(Soma) which is considered a highly addictive medication. The CBD relaxed my muscles just as well without the hangover effect I would get the next morning after a pill. I used to very infrequently take 10mg of diazepam when I would get severe anxiety but I never need to any longer which is great because benzos are very dangerous especially long term. I am a chronic pain patient and I take narcotic pain medication and I am able to take 40% less of my medication on some days which is awesome!. I sleep very deep and reap restorative REM sleep cycles which allowed me to cut my sleep stack supplements in half.
    Oh yeah… My PTSD and accompanying anxiety? It hardly ever bothers me at all anymore! This flower has done more in one month of use than YEARS of psychotherapy, FDA approved "drugs and chemicals" and group therapy COMBINED!
    I am a living breathing double-blind placebo controlled study LOL! I know where I was is what I am saying, I KNOW where this flower has placed me and I am enjoying feeling HUMAN again! I have shared this amazing flower with people just like me and they ALL agree with the benefits and life changing nature of this medicine.
    Some government official with a white lab coat, certifications and a clipboard cannot suppress the truth of what CBD can and IS doing! It's changing lives and the train has already left the station! Catch us if you can… We'll see ya on the sunny side of life and wellness!

  8. In my country marihuana is illegal, but users who have plants to personal consume only and can prove medical conditions are rarely prosecuted.
    I don't like the effect of smoking marihuana, it makes me feel hungry, confused and nervous. But I've always wanted to try baked marihuana.

  9. Hello Dr. Tracey Marks.First off, I want to say that I love what you do, and thank you so much for making these videos!
    I just got diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety disorder. I also have ADHD, which was diagnosed in 2017 when I was 27 years old. Could you make a video explaining Generalized Anxiety disorder, and how this can affect your life and what treatment there is? I've just thought it was part of my personality, and also blamed a lot of the things I feel and go through at ADHD.

  10. I smoked cbd flower (tch <O,2, bought in a legal shop ) and it gave me paranoia and hallucinations …While my friends who smoked it too was like «  it’s impossible that’s just cbd ,it’s all in your head » while i was really tripping and losing touch with reality.
    I was hoping that smoking cbd flower will help with anxiety and depression but i didn’t so im a bit confused right now..did someone experiences the same thing ,i really enjoy understanding why i reacted like this..

  11. Hi Dr Marks! I apologize for this comment not being on topic, but could you possibly consider making a video on the anger that can be associated with bipolar manic episodes? You've mentioned irritability before, but I would love an expansion on that, if possible.

    Thank you so much for your time and effort on these. I really appreciate your explanations!

  12. She needs to do A LOT more research AND weigh the science against the "drugs" on the market. There are no regulations with CBD right now so that makes it the wild wild west out there. The facts are, a person NEEDS to find a CBD product the is 3rd party FDA registered GMP certified laboratory. that means the they are regulated and what is listed on the bottle is "EXACTLY" what is in the bottle. Make that they have there "Test Results" readily available.
    When she does any type of comparison to drugs it shows that she is not mentioning ALL the side effects and long term potential damage they cause???

  13. Hi i have a question my son i believe had a manic breakdown at school but he has never had a breakdown before and the school transported him to the hospital there they have giving hin haldol and seraquel and now he see and hear voices because of it could the meds make him behave like that

  14. I grew up wanting to be a psychiatrist, now I am thinking more along the lines of a psychiatric nurse practitioner. Watching your videos and seeing you utilize your knowledge to help other people inspires me to go on, truly. When I think of what type of health care provider I would like to be, I think of you. Thank you Dr. Marks.

  15. This is rich. A psychiatrist preaching about how it's bad to experiment with promising medicine like CBD. What makes you so gloriously righteous? Your profession's history was all about using humans as involuntary guinea pigs. Hell, you even experimented with electrocuting people as a means to cure their inconsolable "depression " which still goes on today!

  16. I have a lifetime experience with cannabis and what I know from experience seems to clash with what these authorities are saying, this made me really curious. I decided to do a bit of digging, what I found is they're telling bare faced lies regarding their reasons for their positions. I used cannabis to help me cope with depression and stress for a number of years, the pain killing aspect I found accidentally when I had a job that involved a lot of heavy lifting and believe me it helped a lot. Prohibition on drugs in general, from what I've found, has absolutely nothing to do with public safety, it's all corporate greed and political corruption. I studied the "reefer madness" propaganda campaign at the very beginning, which was highly racist BTW, and found the people who were responsible for it had a lot to gain from dominating the drugs market and prohibition of cannabis. The war on drugs has wasted more lives 5han the drugs themselves and made some really nasty people extremely wealthy and influential. Afghanistan and Vietnam were all about the poppies, the CIA and big pharma need these poppies, one for their so called medicines and the other for black budget activities. The latter are the type of activities that make America lots of enemies.

  17. CBD saved my life. I have fibromyalgia and ME. What about all the FDA approved drugs that has been recalled because of deadly and serious side effects. No one wants to go there. Never trust the FDA!!! Yes you have to be mindful and do your homework and make sure the company is reputable but if you get good quality CBD and you suffer from anxiety , pain And a vast majority of health issues. CBD is the way to go.
