THC

"It's not about getting high, it's about getting well."
High as Mike (the movie)

how many fingers do you see?

One of the most common things we hear in the clinic is
"Doctor I don't want to get high!"

Starting low and going slow reduces the high associated
with THC. Adding CBD into the mix, reduces the high
even more.

Can I drive while on THC?

Yes, but you can’t be impaired while driving.

If you’re caught driving while impaired AND have THC in your system, you will receive the same penalty as a drink driving offence.

The police assess impairment by looking at:

1. Your pupil reaction

2. A one leg stand assessment

3. A walk and turn assessment
