I recently mentioned it to my new primary dr and she knew nothing about it. I'm sure she will research it now but I was surprised she never heard of it.

She will either know you are doing well and be supportive or neutral, or you might be perceived a drug seeker, some reported being dropped as a patient or the Dr. refused to refill medications.

Personally I have had my primary doctor change 4 times in the last 5 years, and saw another new this last Feb. for my annual appt, I tested the waters by mentioning my anti inflammatory diet and my supplements, she was so unresponsive and apathetic I left it alone.

I mentioned it to my Dr. and she paused... said that it wasn't FDA approved or regulated and might do more harm than good. She's actually been less than cordial since. I honestly feel that if you mention anything that could be associated with opioids, it's frowned upon. Especially if you simply google it, you'll find tons of "Euphoric", comments. Which IMO, makes it look like a recreational drug and less of a healthy and holistic herb. I've yet to experience any type of euphoria with any strain I've tried. I've taken up to 8g and not had it. /shrug
