There is a tremendous amount of misinformation, particularly on the internet, about cannabis. Cannabis can successfully manage some cancer symptoms including pain and nausea, and it may also increase the appetite and reduce anxiety or depression that can accompany a diagnosis. At the same time, there are claims that cannabis cures other types of diseases. With exaggeration of preclinical evidence, this could lead patients to make unwise choices about their treatment. Michael will bust some of the common myths about cannabis and explain when it should not be used.


Michael will discuss the difference between medical and recreational use of cannabis. He will explain how cannabis can help to manage a wide range of medical conditions and symptoms without many of the side effects of pharmaceuticals. He will discuss the medical use of THC and CBD.
