The study enlisted the help of 70 patients with Tourettes. The patients were given daily doses of a cannabis product with 123 milligrams of THC and 50.5 milligrams of CBD. The participants’ well-being was assessed before the experiment began and then again six months later to gauge the cannabis treatment’s effects.
At its completion, the study found that patients experienced an overall improvement in their quality of life. Further, patients also reported vast reductions in their anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorders.
All that being said, the study also uncovered a few symptoms that were not improved by the cannabis treatment. Specifically, the frequency of tics did not change among the participants.
While the study’s findings are promising, researchers say that more studies are necessary to evaluate the efficacy and safety of these cannabis treatments.

Oregon and Maryland Make Psychedelic Progress
Psychedelic history is being made on both coasts as Oregon and Maryland inch closer to legal use.
In November 2020, Oregon passed a law legalizing the regulation, production, and sale of psilocybin products for therapeutic purposes. Fast-forward to 2023, and the state has now granted the first of these psilocybin manufacturing licenses to Satori Farms PDX LLC. With over 220 license applications submitted to date, more approvals are expected in the coming months.
Meanwhile, in Massachusetts, advocates are pushing to decriminalize psilocybin statewide. Currently, psilocybin decriminalization only applies to certain municipalities in the state, like Somerville, Cambridge, and Northampton. Thanks to the efforts of the Bay Starters for Natural Medicine, a total of eight psychedelics-related bills are currently making their way through Massachusetts’ legislature.
Make sure to check in with Veriheal to get the latest updates on the progress of these two states’ psychedelic legalization efforts.
Unfortunately, the bill specifies that medical cannabis patients will only have access to a limited selection of cannabis products. Specifically, only cannabis products like pills, tablets, and chewables with a maximum THC content of 10 milligrams would be available.
Under the bill, those with the following ailments will qualify for a medical cannabis card:
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis
Severe chronic pain
Irritable bowel syndrome or ulcerative colitis
Epilepsy or debilitating seizures
Any terminal illness

Navigating the laws on traveling with medical marijuana (MMJ) is incredibly confusing with the current global stance on cannabis. In the U.S., some states are okay with you bringing your medicine with you as long as you can prove your patient status, while other states are staunchly against it altogether, leaving MMJ patients in a…

People have been smoking joints for a long time. The first rolling papers surfaced around the early 1500s in Alcoy, Spain. These weren’t like the rolling papers we know today though. To start, these papers were intended for tobacco, not cannabis. They were made of hemp along with other textiles and lacked an adhesive gum…
Just in time for the holidays, the Jet Lag strain brings a smoking experience completely different than what the name suggests. Jet Lag is an energizing sativa that settles into a creative, silly high. And for an anxious flower-lover like me, this strain was the first step in my journey to finding the perfect cannabis…
