In this series we sit down with Ted Smith and Dr. Dave Hepburn to discuss the medical intricacies of cannabis. Ted Smith is the founder and president of the Victoria Cannabis Buyers Club. Ted has been an advocate for medical cannabis, compassionate access and patients rights for 25 years. Dr. Dave Hepburn is a Canadian author and a retired medical doctor. He advocates for broader use of medical marijuana and cannabinoids. He is a member of the Society of Cannabis Clinicians (SCC), International Association for Cannabinoid Medicines (IACM), the Canadian Consortium for the Investigation of Cannabinoids (CCIC) and Physicians for Medical Cannabis (PMC).
In our final video in the Dr. Dave and Ted Smith talk series, we address the reality that cannabis works differently for different people. One of the greatest challenges and strengths of working with cannabis medicine is that some people reacts to cannabis differently than we expect, people need different intake methods and everyone has a different dose that works for them. Today, Dr. Dave addresses the concept of personalized cannabis medicine and whether or not we will ever be at a stage where we can curate personalized cannabis medicine therapies based on biological makeup of individuals.
