• Panel: Cannabis as an Alternative to Opioids, Benzodiazepines, NSAIDs and other Drugs

Panelists: Paul Bergner, Jonathan Treasure and Kenneth Proefrock. While these drugs can have unintended side effects, the use of Cannabis as a substitute should be carefully evaluated for efficacy, adverse reactions and best use for either weaning patients from a drug or using it in conjunction to reduce drug dosage and negative effects. In a fair comparison, Cannabis may be better, but a user may also develop tolerance, loss of effect, and side effects from Cannabis. Examine all sides of this topic with three experienced clinicians.
