1/ #Cannsolve summit with Dr. Ian Mitchell, talking on “a tale of two drugs” aka #THC & #gabapentin
2/ #Gabapentin was made by Park Davis who also made #ketamine and #cocaine
3/ #NIDA only studies drug abuse. In the US #cannabis must come from NIDA. Therefore, we can see challenges in researching the #benefits of #cannabis in US
4/ cannabis supplied by #NIDA is seen in this picture here. It does not even look like cannabis. Also NIDA supplied cannabis for #PTSD studies (in war veterans) containing #mold.
5/ #gabapentin can be abused. and there is an #illicit market for it. Also there is #withdrawal from gabapentin
6/ cannabis myths: there is no fentanyl in cannabis. Even if there was, when you smoke cannabis the fire would destroy fentanyl before you would inhale it.
7/ “gabapentin can be used for almost everything apparently” here are the current “suggested” uses part 1
8/ and more “potential uses” for #gabapentin.... part 2 list.
9/ now that we are reducing #opioid prescribing, we are seeing a rise in #gabapentin, despite not seeing benefit, and seeing side effects. But for some reason this is “ok” and we are not concerned about this (in contrast to concerns with cannabis)
10/ there are significant side effects (with limited evidence) for #gabapentin, #TCA, #tramadol and #opioid. But they can all be used before cannabis
Sorry I didn’t tag you earlier Dr. Mitchell. Found you now @travels2little
