Sweetened Lozenge Highlight

CSATC offers patients cannabis infused Lozenges that deliver a controlled dose of THC and CBD sublingually through the mucous membranes. Now in sweetened form, patients find lozenges to be pleasantly sweet and tasty while they are dissolving. Lozenges are meant to be dissolved underneath the tongue and effects can take about 15-30 minutes to kick in.

Many patients who prefer not to smoke find lozenges to be a viable option to ingest medical cannabis. Patients report relaxing and pain-relieving effects that are helpful for chronic pain, inflammation, arthritis, migraines and muscle spasms.

Available in a variety of fruity flavors, we offer both sweetened and sugar free versions.

Children and Cannabis

Treating children with cannabis is a controversial topic, but when expectations for pharmaceutical drugs fall short, cannabis may be a viable option. Outside of New Jersey, children who receive medical cannabis treatment often suffer from epilepsy, pediatric cancer, autism or other conditions such as motor disorders or cystic fibrosis. Medical cannabis is typically used as a last line of defense for children when battling these conditions, which are mostly treated with pharmaceuticals that carry a number of unwanted side effects. While cannabis use is unconventional, side effects of medical cannabis are typically less harmful than those of other pharmaceuticals. When using medical cannabis, children typically don’t administer medicine through inhalation. Preferred methods of administration are oral application or ingestion. These methods can be achieved with each of CSATC’s extracted products, as they are made from food-grade products.

Benefits of Vaporizing

CSATC suggests that patients administer their medicine in a way that best alleviates their symptoms. Many of our patients have found that vaporizing cannabis gives them fast-acting effects similar to smoking without the toxic and carcinogenic by-products. Vaporizing cannabis allows patients to control the temperature of their medicine to target specific boiling points of cannabinoids and control the intensity of their medication.

Condition Focus: Anxiety

Anxiety is pending approval to become a qualifying condition for the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program. In general, an anxiety disorder is a returning feeling of panic or anxiety that escalates to panic or anxiety attacks. Possible causes of anxiety can be mental conditions, physical conditions, the effects of drugs, or a combination of these causes.

There are three common anxiety disorders: generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorders and panic disorders.

 

A generalized anxiety disorder is characterized by excessive and unrealistic worrying for at least six months and is associated with at least three of the following symptoms: restlessness, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, irritability or explosive anger, muscle tension, sleep disturbances and personality changes. A social anxiety disorder is characterized by an intense, persistent and recurrent fear of situations like speaking in public or being in public places. Panic disorders are characterized by frequent panic attacks as well as a fear of having future attacks. Those with panic disorders often avoid situations that may trigger attacks. Treatment can include self-care, counseling or a range of mood-altering drugs.

 

Cannabis has been found to be helpful for anxiety in multiple studies. A double-blind study showed that after consuming CBD participants experienced a decrease in anxiety, and CBDs exhibited anti-anxiety effects on the brain. Additionally, researchers found that CBD significantly reduced social anxiety measured through a public speaking test. Participants reported reduced anxiety, cognitive impairment and discomfort.

New Micro-dose Lozenges

New Micro-dose Lozenges:
Half Strength and Quarter Strength
CSATC How Do Medicinal Cannabis Lozenges Work
Many patients are using medicinal cannabis in small doses to achieve optimal medicinal benefits without the euphoria. A controlled micro-dose of cannabinoids has showed to be more effective than large doses in multiple studies.
 

In 2012, a study of cancer patients using low, medium and high doses of a THC/CBD compound found greater pain relief from the lowest dose compared to the medium and high dose. In 2014, a study using 4mg doses of synthetic THC found that subjects showed significant improvements in PTSD-associated insomnia, nightmares, other general symptoms and also chronic pain.
 

Our Micro-dosing lozenges will achieve these results in half strength and quarter strength for patients who are looking for a smaller, controlled dose to micro-dose with. It is recommended that new patients start with the quarter strength lozenge and increase their dosage only if the desired effects are not achieved.

Qualifying Condition Focus

Tourette’s Syndrome is pending approval to become a qualifying condition for the New Jersey Medical Marijuana Program. Tourette’s Syndrome is a nervous system disorder that causes sudden movements or sounds, called tics. The two types of tics are motor tics and vocal tics. Motor tics include arm or head jerking, blinking, making a face, mouth twitching or shoulder shrugging. Vocal tics include shouting, grunting, barking, yelping, clearing throats, repeating someone’s words and others.

 

Anecdotal evidence shows cannabis
to be helpful in treating symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome.

More than 100,000 Americas have mild to severe Tourette’s Syndrome. The cause of Tourette’s syndrome is still widely unknown, but it’s thought that genes play a role in the disease. This syndrome has been linked to different parts of the brain, one of which is known as the basal ganglia, which helps control body movements. Treatment for Tourette’s Syndrome include pharmaceuticals that work with dopamine levels in the brain, blood pressure medicine and antidepressants.

Anecdotal evidence shows cannabis to be helpful in treating symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome.
Muller-Vahl et. al found that cannabis sativa and THC had beneficial influences on the symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome including a significant reduction of motor and vocal tics and obsessive-compulsive disorder using the self-rating scale.
