Cannabis Use In Oncology

On May 19, 2019, the UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative held their 3rd Annual UCLA Cannabis Research Symposium. Of their many fact-filled lectures, these two may be of special interest to you. Remember, they are “academic lectures,” so not a 3-minute soundbite! However, if you want evidence-based information, here it is!

Cannabis Use in Oncology by Dr Noah Federman

Cannabis Use in the Aging Population by Dr Gary Small

The UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative (UCLA-CRI) is one of the first academic programs in the world dedicated to the study of cannabis. They study the therapeutic potential and health risks of cannabis on the body, brain, and mind, and want to advance scientific understanding of the impacts of cannabis and hemp on body, brain, mind, and society.

The Director of UCLA-CRI, Jeff Chen, M.D./M.B.A., gave an Insights Into Cancer Lecture on March 2019 on Medicinal Cannabis and Cancer. Click here to view his Insights Into Cancer Lecture.
