“Global task force establishes protocols for medical cannabis use to treat pain” – Helio Medical Journals

It’s fairly well-known that medical cannabis is being used by patients to ease chronic pain, and many other hard to treat issues.

[FTA] “…There are limited randomized controlled trial data to guide clinicians on how to dose and administer medical cannabis,” Arun Bhaskar, MD, a pain medicine consultant with the Pain Management Centre at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust in London, said during a virtual PAINWeek presentation. “This evidence gap, coupled with the clinical reality that patients are receiving medical cannabis for chronic pain, highlights the demand for expert consensus guidance from experienced clinicians on how to safely and effectively dose and administer medical cannabis.”

The panel produced an often recommended “start low and go slow” approach  that you can find in the full “Helio” journal article. 

Have you asked your doctor about cannabis medicine for pain?

“Study Finds Older Adults Using Cannabis to Treat Common Health Conditions” – Times of San Diego

If medical cannabis is legal in most states, then why aren’t doctors required to learn about it in school or continuing education?

[FTA] “…The findings demonstrate the need for the clinical workforce to become aware of cannabis use by seniors and to gain awareness of both the benefits and risks of cannabis use in their patient population,” said Dr. Alison Moore, senior author and chief of the division of geriatrics at UCSD’s School of Medicine. “Given the prevalence of use, it may be important to incorporate evidence-backed information about cannabis use into medical school and use screening questions about cannabis as a regular part of clinic visits.”

Ask your doctor if they’ve had any training in how medical cannabis works with the endocannabinoid system to ease many of the hard to treat issues that seniors often face including aches and pains of arthritis, insomnia, anxiety, depression, polypharmacy, agitation, aggression in dementia, PTSD, and more.

If your doctor is looking to learn more about this medicine, perhaps show them this story or the report from UC San Diego Medical School published in the Journal of American Geriatrics Society.
