There have been no specific studies on cannabis use in FAODs. That said, the level of the active chemicals in blood is extremely small and not likely to be metabolically problematic. I have had patients who felt it helped their symptoms. However, I am in favor of using a non-inhaled formulation to avoid damage to lungs. Hope this helps. Dr. Vockley
