PLEASE NOTE
IT IS CRITICAL FOR ALL PROSPECTIVE PATIENTS TO UNDERSTAND THE FOLLOWING:

NOT ALL PATIENT’S WITH THE SAME MEDICAL CONDITION RESPOND THE SAME – patients are different; they have different degrees of the same medical condition, and they have different accompanying medical conditions not related to their primary diagnosis – and, they are often on very different medications. ALL THESE FACTORS (AND MORE) MUST BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT BY THE TREATING PHYSICIAN, SO AS TO DETERMINE THE PROPER TYPE, STRENGTH, DOSE AND ROUTE NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE MAXIMUM RESULTS WITH THE USE AND ADMINISTRAITON OF CANNABINOIDS AND MEDICAL MARIJUANA.

This is why Dr. Gionis and Dr. Smyrniotis take this aspect of medical practice VERY SERIOUSLY – we do not “rush” through your evaluation – but rather consider ALL your facts and factors, along with your medical records to make an EDUCATED and INTELLIGENT DECISION in attempting to help you. We are highly dedicated to your well being – and we take it quite seriously.

NOT ALL PREPARATIONS OF CBD – OR MEDICAL MARIJUANA – ARE THE SAME !!! Just because something is labeled “CBD” or “Medical Marijuana” – DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THAT IT IS REAL – OR THAT IT IS EVEN CBD or MEDICAL MARIJUANA!!! Different “manufacturers” are regulated DIFFERENTLY – and some – NOT AT ALL. MANY “internet” products are FAKE – and have NO VALUE WHATSOEVER !!!

That’s why SO MANY internet preparations simply DO NOT WORK !!!! Many of them are simply – Garbage.

So not all “CBD” actually is actually “CBD,” and,
NOT all “CBD” is alike.

Also, not all “medical marijuana” actually is “medical marijuana,” and,
NOT all “medical marijuana” is the alike.

This is why Dr. Gionis and Dr. Smyrniotis, when making recommendations for CBD or medical marijuana – recommend only the HIGHEST GRADE products which are manufactured under the HIGHEST DEGREE of scrutiny, care and GMP (Good Manufacturing Processes). We recommend pharmaceutical grade type products so that we can achieve maximal results.
