My wife has group four CMT. It is a genetic disease that is non treatable and non curable. The disease cause sever pain and mobility control in her extremities. The meds that the neurologist prescribed causes side effects that require her to have constant supervision. Insurance will not cover most costs because there is no treatment. When she tried cannabis for two days and was able to have minimal pain and increase mobility for almost a week. We were told that the type she smoked was a mid level thc . She never showed any signs of being (stoned) she was her normal self . I see no adverse effects in her. She is homebound so there is no danger to public and see no reason she could not benefit from this medication.
