IHE collaborates on research project looking at Cannabis and Arthritis

The IHE is part of a research team funded by Alberta Innovates to investigate how widespread cannabis use is among arthritis patients. Self-medication and a lack of solid evidence to guide cannabis use for these purposes can lead to substantial harm. The research team will develop and validate a decision tool to help guide cannabis use to inform patients and health professionals. Information is available in the following Folio article:
