Director of the first cannabis clinic in Mexico defends the legalization of medical cannabis
In an interview, Espejel explained that more than 600 patients were treated at the clinic he opened last January. This included the ones who were helped with the initial dose, as well as the treatment duration, the procedure and the food they should eat.
The director also defended the legalization of medical cannabis because it helps lessen symptoms and reduces the invasive effects of other treatments, such as chemotherapy.
He said the clinic treats people with chronic degenerative illnesses and mental conditions such as depression and anxiety. Espejel also tries to inform patients about cannabis developments in the country.
Moreover, he reiterated that patients are advised on how to use the cannabis plant, in addition to the scope it has in chronic degenerative diseases, mental health and terminal patients.
The director added that there are patients who use cannabis for chronic pain and anxiety when diagnosed.
Cannabis isn’t a cure for everything
Espejel explained that cannabis is a plant that has a broad spectrum, so many people may think it can be used for everything and that is risky.
For this reason, he said that in his clinic, doctors help the patients understand the scope and how far to go, because in some cases it doesn’t cure, it only controls some symptoms.
He cited the example of cases of cancer under chemotherapy treatment, which causes patients much nausea and loss of appetite. In these cases, cannabis can benefit them to cope with conventional treatment.
