    You and the other 41 men who participated in this study are all wrong. All of you. All of those side effects are from dapakote alone. Not marijuana. Actually marijuana will help you alleviate the dapakote side effects. Most of them except fatigue and hair loss.
    Personally I think they make dapakote out of super concentrated weed. Feels the same!
