Green is the New Grey-Seniors and Medical Cannabis

June 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

In person interactive lecture at the North Shore Seniors’ Health Expo in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Over time, the likelihood of developing various conditions increases and many “standard” therapies may not be effective or associated with intolerable side effects. More and more seniors are enquiring whether medical cannabis might be a safe alternative option in not only managing their situation better but also as a way to reduce their pill burden.

This presentation will try and answer those questions by discussing the history of medical cannabis along with the recently discovered endocannabinoid system. As well, through a review of the science behind the indications/contraindications of medical cannabis along with different strains, modes of administration and barriers to regulated access.
