Michelle Sexton Naturopathic Doctor is an assistant adjunct professor in the department of anesthesiology in the UCSD health system.  She also has a clinical naturopathic and holistic practice working with patients who are looking to understand the underlying cause of disease and to treat the cause rather than the symptom.  Drawing on her understanding of the endocannabinoid system, Michelle explains how THC, the primary compound of cannabis, can be effective for treating pain, seizures, and opioid addiction.
