There’s no single truth about cannabis medicines.
And until there is a randomised controlled trial we won’t know the truth. We’re often asked about cannabis oil and brain tumours, and some of you will have been fortunate enough to attend one of our workshops led by Dr Wai Lui about this topic. There is a lot of misinformation which we try to counter. We know that some people take cannabis medicines and feel better; but equally we know that some people take it and feel worse, so stop. We know too that medical grade cannabinoids can be privately prescribed for people living with a brain tumour and we know that with over the counter cannabis oil there may be issues with the quality and content.
