Description

Do you have questions about pain and how cannabis can benefit you?

Please join us at Farmacy’s Clinic and speaker Gavin Rose who will be discussing cannabis use and how it can treat your back pain.


According to Statistics Canada, back problems are among the most common chronic conditions in Canada, and 4 out of 5 adults will experience at least one episode of back pain at some time in their lives. Cannabis is becoming the treatment of choice for many chronic and acute back pain patients. Conventional treatment therapies such as over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications can be helpful but can cause many side effects, even death. The addictive potentials of opiates are also very concerning and more patients are leaning towards the pain relieving benefits of cannabis as a solution.


Studies have found cannabis to possess positive effects on the following medicinal issues commonly impacting those with pain.

-Chronic pain

-Inflammation

-Muscle tension

-Stiffness

-Scoliosis

-Sciatica

…and more
