Medical Cannabis is not dangerous
When it comes to medical cannabis, there is one fundamental and important fact that no one can deny (medical professionals, drug enforcement agency representatives, and concerned citizens): it is certainly an alternative medicine with very low risk.
Treatment takes Patience and Time
Finding the Solution that Works for Richie
How is Richie doing Today?
Planning for the Future
For now, we continue to keep Richie on CBD medical treatment, maintain our Positive Behavior Support Plan, continue with his current medications, and most importantly, we will always presume competence in Richie and his ability to learn new things.
Our plan is to work with Richie's doctors and discuss how we can slowly begin to decrease his other prescription medications until he can come off them completely. We will do this when we have documented reports that show Richie’s aggressive and self-injurious behaviors are at “zero” for at least two months. We will continue to discuss, review and plan on an appropriate exit plan for the traditional medications with Richie's doctors and behavior team.
For now we love seeing him relieved from anxiety and pain. We love seeing him happy and smiling. We love watching him enjoy his life! Our overall family life is happier than we've ever been with the help of medical cannabis.
We wish you luck on your journey to finding relief with medical cannabis!
