The purpose of our CannaTalk™ event series is to create an engaging conversation around the various topics and issues that we face with cannabis as well as provide supporting resources to help them further expand on these matters and take action when needed.
Cannaware Society Presents Cannatalk Vol. 8: Medicinal Cannabis and the fight for Black and Latinx representation in Health, moderated by Cannaclusive’s Kassia Graham on Oct 29th at 7pm ET via Zoom. Our upcoming virtual discussion will include a healthcare professional, dispensary employee, and cancer survivor, who will share their experiences and speak about cannabis as a complementary medicine and the importance of fighting for Black and Latinx representation in Health
The use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM)––medical products and practices that are not part of standard medical care nor taught in medical schools––continues to increase for patients who may seek to enhance their well-being and quality of life.
One is medical cannabis, which usage has been steadily increasing over the past few years as it has become legal in a majority of states. While medical cannabis can’t replace the current treatments for cancer, it has the potential to help reduce cancer cells, as well as relieve the symptoms and side effects to make them easier to manage.
According to a recent Breastcancer.org survey, 42% of cancer patients reported they have used medical cannabis to treat symptoms or treatment side effects. However, the lack of visual representation of Black and Latinx in information and health professionals who can relate with patients' family history and personal risk often results in these communities lacking the knowledge and understanding of how to reduce risk.
We hope you can join us for the discussion, followed by a Live Q&A with the panelists.
