Cafe Scientifique - Cannabinoids: Molecules, Epidemiology and Public Policy

For patients who use medical marijuana, the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purpose Regulations makes standardized cannabis oil products - of defined quality and ratio of the key cannabinoids (THC and CBD) - available from licensed producers. This creates opportunity for optimizing the use of medical marijuana, but the current lack of robust scientific evidence constitutes a critical barrier to its dose optimization for specific indications and/or patient populations. The growing interest to use cannabis oil products for different indications and populations heightens the need for rigorous clinical and scientific investigation.

Join us as we talk about the evidence-based research that has been conducted to date at the University of Saskatchewan, on the safe and effective use of cannabis oil products.
