Around 50 doctors from all over Australia attended a training course in Melbourne on how to prescribe medicinal cannabis.
Cannabis is not just one product, it’s a complex collection of plants and each cannabis plant has up to 100 cannabinoids, which are the chemical compounds found in marijuana plants, all of which may have medicinal effect.
Head of Supportive Care and Integrative Oncology Dr Judith Lacey was excited to speak at the course. “If I’m prescribing something, I really need to understand it. Science is still learning about the potential medicinal effects of each cannabinoid,” says Dr Lacey.
