Resolving atopic dermatitis with cannabidiol aka CBD will reduce / stop the bullying of AD sufferers by those with invisible diagnoses.
The 2018 U.S. Farm Bill excepting cannabidiol as a Schedule 1 controlled substance enables millions to effectively manage their AD.
Please elaborate on your proposed solution to the challenge in no more than 300 words.
As a healthy first child, I bullied my younger sister, now age 70, largely for the eczema that made her life a living hell as a child and has persisted throughout her entire adulthood. That childhood bullying set the foundation for the alienation that has divided us most of our entire lives. She has never found a way effectively to manage her eczema / atopic dermatitis.
Based upon my recent personal experience with high-quality, THC-free, transdermal and sublingual cannabidiol (CBD), it is my hypothesis (BS Biology, Phi Beta Kappa, and JD with 39 years of practicing law) that the immune suppressing, pain relieving, and anxiety-calming properties of CBD, now legal in the United States, can enable my sister, and millions of others, effectively to manage their AD / eczema.
I've recently had occasion to work with a Salt Lake City University of Utah-affiliated dermatologist with regard to pre-surgery hip implant metals testing. Once I receive scientifically-proven MELISA testing results from Germany validating the skin patch and prick metals testing the dermatologist did, I believe he would be interested in conducting a research study to determine the effectiveness of CBD in treating a cohort of patients of all age classifications who suffer from eczema / atopic dermatitis.
I would like to gift my sister with an effective, researched treatment for the chronic eczema / atopic dermatitis that has plagued her life. Then perhaps she will forgive my bullying.
