Medical cannabis expert discusses treatment options

Cannabis News, Medical Marijuana

QUINCY — Well-known medical cannabis advocate Dr. Alan Shackelford gave doctors, nurses and other medical professionals a firsthand look Thursday night at what marijuana can do for chronic conditions.

The Denver doctor and cannabis researcher opened his presentation with a brief biography and a video of 5-year-old Charlotte Figi, the youngest patient he has treated with medical cannabis.

In the video, Charlotte was enduring a seizure. Shackelford said she had more than 300 grand mal seizures a week before he “very reluctantly agreed” to begin treating her with cannabis. Charlotte was treated with a high-concentration cannabidiol oil and now has two to three seizures a month.
