Urinary Irritation.

Other tomes: Thomas

It is seldom, if ever, that I have been able to observe an absolutely new therapeutic fact. Here is one which is not new, but so certain that I think it is worth reproducing.

Add from 20 to 40 drops of specific cannabis indica to 4 ounces of water. Of this give a teaspoonful, every two, three, or four hours, in those cases of urinary irritation which are found typically in women. There is frequent urination, but just a few drops of water is passed, every few minutes. The desire is almost constant. There is burning pain and often vesical tenesmus. This remedy relieves this condition better than anything I have ever found.
