New conditions and THC levels were the topic of conversation at the latest meeting of the Iowa Medical Cannabidiol Board meeting.
The boards eight members (mainly physicians) discussed increasing the current THC level of 3%. They however voted unanimously against increasing the current limit.
“I’d like to get another year or two under our belts and see how people respond with the current THC cap,” said board member Lonny Miller
Robert Shreck, a Des Moines oncologist, told his colleagues the 3% THC limit is imperfect but should stay in place for the time being.
“I think it’s a fair compromise the state made. It allows a variety of products to be distributed. People can try them … and see what it does for them,”
Medical conditions were also discussed and while the board voted to recommend that severe pediatric autism be added to the list of ailments, ADHD, PSD, bi polar an ganglioglioma were declined due to lack of research.
The board have made a recommendation that could help patients get approved for the program. The board voted unanimously to recommend the state let nurse practitioners and physician assistants certify that patients have conditions qualifying them to purchase medical marijuana products. Currently only physcians can make the certifications.
