ONLINE MEDICAL MARIJUANA DOCTORS AND PATIENTS TESTIMONIALS – HOW MEDICAL MARIJUANA HELPS IN TINNITUS

“Cannabis elements play a role modulating overactive nervous activity seen in Tinnitus.”  – Paul F. Smith \MD

“Different medical Marijuana Strains contain different quantities of CBD and THC and modulate receptors in varying ways.  One potent THC strain might make matters worse while another high in CBD might reduce Tinnitus.  And dose is very important as with any drugs.  Micro-dosing is sometimes preferable to brute force usage.”-  ONLINE MMJ DOCTOR 

“Imagine that tinnitus is a form of sensory epilepsy, arising partly from neuronal hyperactivity in auditory regions of the brain such as the cochlear nucleus and inferior colliculus. This implies that CBD and THC found in Medical Cannabis, that have shown effectiveness in treating other forms of the disease, might be a good treatment for Tinnitus.” – Dr. Smith P.F. MD.

“There is increasing evidence to suggest that medical marijuana products, can also have anti-epileptic effects, at least in some patients and in some parts of the brain.”  – Dr. Yiwen Zheng M.D.
