We Know So Much and We Know So Little
What do we know about cannabis and it’s role in the treatment of cancer? A lot and a little at the same time apparently. For this session we are joined by Vancouver based holistic nutritionist, Margaret Sung and California’s psycho-oncologist, Dr Sadie Phillips, as they discuss the effects of cannabis in the mainstream medical arena.
You’ll hear about the long standing relationship between cannabis as a cancer treatment, including its effectiveness, the need for more research and the increase in demand from patients and families.
Medicinal cannabis has been available in both California and Canada for some time, yet the legalisation of recreational cannabis is facilitating another momentous shift in the general acceptance of the plant.
Patients and physicians are increasingly searching for answers as to how best to combine cannabis with traditional treatments. The two discuss the use of cannabis among oncology professional and how many cancer queries are driven by patients and family members.
Currently only 30% of doctors feel comfortable giving cannabis recommendations, and many feel there is a need for more support in this field.
