Medical Cannabis: When conventional medicine isn’t enough…

If you’re considering medical cannabis as a treatment option for yourself, or for a loved one, you probably have more questions than answers. Medical cannabis has been shown, through scientific study, to help patients alleviate symptoms of many conditions including Arthritis, Cancer, Epilepsy, Crohn’s Disease, Depression, Anxiety, Parkinson’s Disease and many more.

Linda Shanks has worked in medical research for ten years at the University of Manitoba in both Pharmacology and Oncology. She began a career in the pharmaceutical industry in Saskatchewan in the mid-eighties and relocated to British Columbia 27 years ago to continue in pharmaceuticals as a pain specialist in Oncology and Palliative Care. Linda has had many roles over the years calling on Family Physicians, Pharmacists and Specialists.

Linda is currently a medical outreach representative for a licensed producer of medical cannabis. Her primary role is to educate health care professionals about the role of medical cannabis in today’s health environment.

Join Women’s AM on Thursday, April 12th, as we learn why thousands of Canadians with chronic or terminal illnesses rely on medical cannabis for symptom management.
