Genetic Testing: Is Medical Marijuana is Right for You?

In recent years there has been a growing trend in the medical field that pinpoints exactly how your body metabolizes medications and if there are any possible adverse reactions to a drug. We now have tests that can even determine the efficacy of a drug and dosages based on your genetic makeup. These tests are known as pharmacogenomics (PGx for short), and with just a small blood or saliva sample, your perfect prescription is achieved. PGx is a DNA test, done via buccal swab, to determine how a patient metabolizes medications within various specialties. It addresses dosage guidance, interactions, and overall clinical guidance for precision medicine.
Our bodies have thousands of genes that are responsible for a multitude of specific DNA factors, genetic testing has proven to be highly effective for medications effectiveness. The good news is, that with all of the cutting edge advantages there are now genetic tests to safeguard medical marijuana’s efficacy.
The Advantages of Medical Marijuana
Our brain and nerve cells have cannabinoid receptors and our bodies naturally react to CBD and THC by merging directly with our cells. Our natural endocannabinoid system works synergistically with both CBD and THC, creating a multitude of beneficial reactions in the body, including unique healing abilities.
There are different levels of medical marijuana, some with higher THC, some with very low THC depending on the disease being treated. In Florida, medical marijuana is highly controlled and operates very efficiently under vigorous guidelines.
