MEDICAL CANNABIS IN PSYCHIATRY
Cannabis has been used as a medicine for thousands of years. Conventional psychiatry has historically viewed cannabis as a drug of abuse, despite the fact that it is non toxic and causes fewer side-effects than many psychiatric medications. Additionally, using cannabis allows many to decrease or discontinue their use of addictive medications. Dr. B will be seeing patients at Holos Health a few days a month. While he does not accept insurance, Dr. B can provide you with a superbill to submit to your insurance for partial reimbursement.
