Harvard Doctor Shatters Taboos: 'People Can Use Cannabis Instead Of Opioids For Pain'

with hundreds of successful opiate cessations, many among combat wounded or severe chronic pain management, SKMS and RCM Co. staff couldn't agree more.

From Nicolas Jose Rodriguez and Benzinga as Linked below;

"Dr. Peter Grinspoon is a general practitioner at Harvard University, writer, medical cannabis specialist, and lecturer. In 2016 he published the book “Free Refills: A Doctor Confronts His Addiction” which seeks to explain the vulnerability of healthcare personnel to addiction and quickly became a global bestseller as it confronts the stigma, taboo, and prejudice associated with addiction.

"Peter's relationship with medical cannabis is long-standing, dating back to his relationship with his father, Dr. Lester Grinspoon, who in 1971 wrote the book Marihuana Reconsidered, which calls for the legalization of cannabis. And in fact, the cannabis genetics bank, Barney's Farm, in the city of Amsterdam, created a strain in his honor.

"Barney's has a strain called Dr. Grinspoon. I have to admit I've tried it. And it's really a good strain. It's very perceptive. It's very stimulating and cerebral, kind of like my dad," says Peter proudly, from his home in Newton, Massachusetts."

SKMS has manufactured millions of safer than opiates, non addictive, inflammation reducing, symptom specific relief formulas for many years for many people. Check out the safer options that work with our body's own system, the 'cellular mechanic' the Endocannabinoid System.
