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

Speaker

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
