Medicinal Cannabis and Endometriosis: Current Research and Substitution Effect Data
Endometriosis, characterized by severe dysmenorrhea, non-cyclical pelvic pain, and other symptoms, often does not find sufficient relief through conventional medical and surgical interventions, leading individuals to seek alternative treatments like cannabis. This webinar will navigate through the prevalence of cannabis usage in Australia, New Zealand, and worldwide, self-reported effectiveness, substitution effects, and potential mechanisms of action in both human and animal models.
It will also discuss the challenges encountered in clinical practice and clinical trial design related to the use of medicinal cannabis for endometriosis, providing a comprehensive overview of the current landscape of medicinal cannabis in endometriosis treatment.
