CASE STUDIES: CANNABIS AND VERTIGO

We are all very familiar with both CBD rich and THC rich medicines helping a lot with nausea. In recent months I have seen a number of patients with vertigo from different etiologies. A few have been related to inner ear issues, a few have been associated with local cancers and a few were a part of a systemic neurological disorder.

They seem to share one thing in common; they all seem to respond to CBD in doses of 6 mg per 24 hours.

I feel comfortable thinking about Vertigo the same way I think of nausea. Both CBD and THC are effective in treating both nausea and vomiting; not all that surprising as they are so frequently related.

So, if you Diagnose Vertigo, think cannabinoids

With COVID, we have never been more aware of critical shortages of masks, ventilators, hospital beds, etc., all leading to rationing. In this BLOG, Dr Frankel, examines how rationing in our medical care is a much bigger problem than just face masks.

There are “acid” and “neutral” forms of every cannabinoid molecule. Early man knew the difference and would either just eat the cannabis raw, or heat it to convert to the neutral or “active” forms of the cannabinoids.

Cookie Bekkar is a cancer survivor and patient of Dr Frankel’s. She has created a website to share her story, what worked well for her and as a resource help inspire/educate other patients.

Early studies in both Israel and Canada show findings consistent with CBD’s effect on COVID-19’s ability to take hold in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract. If the receptors are reduced, the viral infection and pulmonary toxicity should be reduced.

CBD has recently been studied to help with Graft Versus Host Disease which can occur after an organ transplant. Dr Frankel also highlights potential dosing with whole plant cannabis and why whole plant cannabis is more beneficial to single molecule CBD.

Report: Marijuana Improves Vertigo Symptoms

According to a new study first reported on by NORML and published in the journal Discoveries, the daily administration of whole-plant cannabis oil is associated with a significant improvement in symptoms of anxiety and vertigo.

For the case report an Australian investigator reported on the successful use of cannabis oil for symptom management in an 88-year-old female patient with generalized anxiety disorder and debilitating vertigo. The patient reported “significant improvements in her quality of life” following four weeks of daily cannabis use (2 ml of THC-dominant oil). The subject reported that her nausea, dizziness, and limited mobility returned shortly after she stopped taking cannabis oil. Symptoms ceased when she once again reintegrated cannabis oil into her daily treatment regimen.

The report’s author concluded: “[T]his case demonstrates how the patient was able to significantly benefit from the introduction of medical cannabis into her mental health intervention for the treatment of vertigo and a generalized anxiety disorder. In this case, the benefits for the 88-year-old patient using medical cannabis as a treatment in the both the short term and longer-term far outweighed the potential risks that may require consideration for children or adolescents.”

The abstract of the report can be found below:

Despite the increasing prevalence and acceptance of the medical cannabis use among the general public, the evidence required by physicians to use cannabis as a treatment is generally lacking. Research on the health effects of cannabis and cannabinoids has been
limited worldwide, leaving patients, health care professionals, and policymakers without the evidence they need to make sound decisions regarding the use of cannabis and cannabinoids. This case study outlines an intervention that involved a
patient integrating medical cannabis into her treatment to better manage a generalized anxiety disorder and the debilitating symptoms of vertigo. This case demonstrates how the patient drastically improved her quality of life and reinforces the need for more rigorous testing on the use of medical cannabis to support patients and better manage the symptoms associated with their medical conditions.
