There is so much research out there about the dangers of THC and marijuana on the development of the pediatric brain. But our guest Dr. Bonni Goldstein specializes in working with pediatric patients and cannabis.
She says it is critical to remember that prescribing and using medical cannabis is much different than the stories we hear of teenagers using cannabis in problematic or recreational situations.
Bonni Goldstein, M.D., is the owner and medical director of Canna-Centers Wellness and Education, a medical practice devoted to educating patients about the use of cannabis for serious and chronic medical conditions. She is also a medical advisor to Weedmaps.com, the first and largest global technology and media company in the cannabis space.
She joins Dr. Leigh Vinocur again this episode to talk about the conditions where cannabis is used in pediatric medicine, the research into medical cannabis patients vs recreational users, and the unfortunate cases of accidental overdose.
