Webinar:
The Intersection of Cannabis and Nutrition for the Treatment of Cancer Patients

Webinar Abstract:
Studies have demonstrated how cannabis may contribute to cancer treatment not only by treating symptoms but also by: cancer cell apoptoss, anti-proliferation, anti-metastatic and anti-angiogenesis. Studies have also demonstrated that a whole food plant only diet also contributes to cancer treatment through apoptosis and anti-proliferation. We will discuss these mechansims of action and share case studies combining both diet and cannabis as either an alternative or complementary treatment.
Learning Objectives:
-Understand why nutrition plays an essential role in the treatment of cancer patients
-Understand the use of a full extract cannabis oil in a microdose formulation to help treat cancer patients
