Marijuana grown, sold and used for medical purposes became legal in Missouri on Dec. 6, but no one is allowed to do anything with the drug until they receive approval by state regulators. That could be as early as December for business owners applying to grow marijuana commercially, and as early as July 28 for patients applying to grow it at home.

Missouri requires that after Dec. 31, 2020, anyone growing marijuana legally must obtain seeds or plants from a business licensed by the state. But it takes at least a few months for a crop to mature, so growers licensed by January won't have any legal in-state sources for marijuana seeds or young plants

 

Benefits of Cannabis:
Nightmares: Chronic use can screw up your sleep patterns. But, for those suffering from PTSD, it appears that nabilone, a synthetic form of THC, will reduce the related nightmares. In one study, published in the CNS Neuroscience & Therapeutics Journal, “The majority of patients (72%) receiving nabilone experienced either cessation of nightmares or a significant reduction in nightmare intensity. Subjective improvement in sleep time, the quality of sleep, and the reduction of daytime flashbacks and nightsweats were also noted by some patients.”
Parkinson’s Disease: Patients with Parkinson’s Disease suffer constantly from spasms and tremors, symptoms that are obvious to all. But, patients also suffer chronic pain and sleeping difficulties. MedPage refers to research headed by Dr. Ruth Djaldetti at Tel Aviv University where “Overall, patients' scores on the standard Unified Parkinson's Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) averaged 33 before they smoked cannabis in the laboratory and averaged 24 after 30 minutes.” She also noted, “We saw a dramatic reduction in pain in our patients and in their ability to sleep. When their pain was reduced, they slept better."

 

The ‘low and slow’ mantra is worth following when using CBD oil for cats. As they are significantly smaller and lighter than humans, they require far less cannabidiol. Your first action should involve weighing your cat because its size determines the right dosage. As a general rule, aim for 0.1 – 0.5 mg of CBD per kilogram of body weight to begin with.

We have charts in our stores that suggest how much of of CBD per dose your cat will need based on weight. Pets that weigh 30 pounds may receive 4mg of CBD. There is also the issue of the medical condition. So stop by at our locations to get some CBD oil for your pets.
