Think Science: Medical Marijuana

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.
