“Amazingly the effects of cannabinoids can reduce or eliminate the majority of symptoms of opiate withdrawal. Cannabis can reduce anxiety and agitation, improve sleep and helps normalize the digestive tract.

For this reason cannabis has become a major player in the harm reduction aspect of treating addictions.” – Dr. Sean Bean M.D. www.mrsocal.com
