The use of medical cannabis in palliative care is something that isn’t discussed enough. Although the primary reason for cannabis use among most patients stems from pain management, this recent study conducted in Israel on over 3,000 cancer patients revealed:
Patients reporting good quality of life increased to 69.5% from 18.7%. 36% of patients stopped using opioids. <20% discontinued cannabis treatment, of which 19.3% stopped due to side effects.
This means that cannabis based medicines (CBM) could be an important part of palliative care for patients with cancer and other conditions that require multi-symptom relief.
There are many ways to consume cannabis that do not involve smoking it. These different methods of consumption, along with the dosage and strain of the cannabis, will vary from patient to patient depending on their unique health concerns. Some of the common methods include:
Oral ingestion (capsules, edibles and tinctures)
Topically (creams, salves and patches)
