The demand for medical cannabis education from both providers and patients is increasing dramatically as stigma on its use decreases. The Cannabis and Cancer Research and Education Clinic (CanCaRE) was developed to meet this growing need--providing education on safe and effective cannabis use, dosing recommendations, and symptom management strategies. Hear how using novel agents like medical cannabis to improve their patients' quality of life is part of their overall mission to provide comprehensive cancer care services.
