Blog Post & Photos – April 12, 2018 with Linda Shanks, CanniMed

The subject of medical cannabis is controversial, but better understanding through education will help us to learn about its potential benefits as a treatment option. The volume of information available is overwhelming, however, Linda Shanks from CanniMed, provided an enlightening presentation which included a thorough medical explanation; she outlined the CanniMed products (as a licensed and regulated producer), and she concluded by answering several of our attendee questions relating to this subject.

Medical cannabis is not for everyone, but it can be a good fit for patients suffering from serious chronic and terminal illness. Consult with your doctor about medical cannabis therapy, and if you have any questions, there is a staff pharmacist at CanniMed who is available to take your call at 1.855.787.1577 / / E.
