Think Science: Medical Marijuana

May 18, 2018

As the opioid crisis worsens, more Americans are looking toward alternative sources of pain relief, one of which is marijuana. Cannabis has been reported to alleviate pain and anxiety, and may benefit glaucoma and epilepsy patients.

At this Think Science event, TPR reporter Ryan Poppe moderates a discussion on medical marijuana, with special emphasis on CBD oil and other non-psychoactive properties of cannabis that may benefit patients. 


Listen to the audio of the panel discussion below. You can also follow along with Karen Keough, MD's slide presentation. (Apologia: the first minute of audio is missing.)
