Rethink Breast Cancer presents:
Medical Cannabis + Cancer Care

Medical cannabis has been shown to help patients with symptoms of cancer and side effects of treatment such as pain, nausea, appetite and anxiety. Symptom management is especially challenging for women living with metastatic breast cancer and those who become palliative.

Join an amazing panel of experts to unpack some of the barriers to accessing cannabis for medical uses, myths and misconceptions about dispensaries and licenced producers, what you need to make an informed choice about obtaining a prescription and the latest in medical cannabinoid research. 

Moderated by Shawna Rich-Ginsberg
