"Idea of your tolerance level changing? Marijuana just like medications or drugs, you can get used to it. Dependent on tolerant dependent tolerance are two different things, depending where you need it everyday. Marijuana. They don't necessarily depend on it all the time they do without. But they could run the risk of being tolerant Gorna tolerance to it. Where all of a sudden kick east. Or it's. You're you need to go a little stronger or a little stronger. So tolerance dependent different. But a concern that we have in the medical community. Even though some of us are released cited about how we could study it, you know, now that it's not considered illegal in many states federally. It still is one thing that does concern us is the interaction with other medications. You know when we have to study marijuana. Once we found out that it was going to be easier to study, you know, as states relegalised in it. I the first thing that came to my mind is what what are we going to study? I there's so much we need to know what seizures seizures were were already being studied. And that's what we already have the medication out. Now that is a cannabis based anti-seizure medication only indicated for very very severe seizure cases Dravid's cetera. But we've we've started to really really move forward with stunning its affect on seizures. Have we studied its effects on diabetes and prevent diabetes. Now, not really a lot of studies. I don't think have we studied its ability to mess with your coming in and warford levels. I'm not sure have we tested. Does it interfere with your asthma? Medications. Have we tested. Does it interfere with your cholesterol, medications, your heart medications? There's so much. We need to study for well one thing that's broken through in terms of research. Is people who regularly use cannabis Meinie twice the level of sedation required when undergoing a medical procedure. Now, this is a small study. But an important one. They looked at feno verse or Mme and propofol which are three sedation drugs commonly used during endoscopic procedures. And according to the journal of the American osteopathic association, they said with continued increase legals -ation and use of cannabis the field of anesthesia installation needs further studies with greater depth. So if you are an active cannabis user, and you don't tell your certain an anesthesiologist, you might not knock out completely during your surgery. Now between the years two thousand seven to two thousand fifteen use of marijuana increased forty three percent in the United States. And that's those who admitted it an estimated thirteen point five percent of adults use cannabis regularly that one hundred eighty three million people around the world that four percent of the population vaca two thousand fifteen was using it regularly now higher. So cannabis and medical sequentially. Could probably easily studied in states like Colorado that have had legalized for the longest time. So researchers at community hospital a grand junction, Colorado, look at one small area of marijuana affecting medical care and that's sedation. So they looked at the medical records of two hundred fifty patients who received endoscopic procedures between January one two thousand sixteen in June and December thirty thousand seventeen so this was years after the state of legalized recreational marijuana back in two thousand twelve so when they compared cannabis users to non-users they found that the patients reported smoking or using like edible marijuana on a daily or weekly basis needed fourteen percent were fence.
