Timing is everything

Timing is everything. Isn’t that a truism? It is definitely applies to Wyatt and cannabis.

The time it takes to metabolize food or medicine is unique to each individual but typically falls into an average range for most people. Wyatt’s cannabis begins to take a therapeutic effect after about 20 minutes. (A lot of other medicines taken orally fall into this range, too. That’s why it takes a while to experience pain relief from aspirin after you swallow it.)

That effect will last about three hours. To maintain a therapeutic level in his body, he must receive a small dose every three hours. Day and night. (Since we are using a plant extract, handy time-release mechanisms in many pharmaceuticals aren’t available.)
