Webinar: Cannabis, Cannabinoids and Cancer Care

Date: June 10, 2021 @ 04:00 PM CEST/05:00 PM Israel IDT / 10:00 AM ET

The prevalence of cannabis use for different aspects of cancer care is constantly increasing. Indeed, cannabis and cannabinoids have been suggested as potential modulators for common and debilitating symptoms which are associated with cancer and anti-cancer treatments, such as pain, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting. To a certain extent, there is evidence to additionally support the potential of cannabinoids for additional symptoms that impact cancer patients, such as gastrointestinal distress, peripheral neuropathy, as well as depression and anxiety.
Notwithstanding, the body of knowledge is still in its infancy and has several limitations. Furthermore, cancer patients are very heterogenic, thus limiting the possibility to conclusively draw firm conclusions or clinical recommendations. In this CannX webinar, two distinguished oncologists will share their experience of integrating cannabis into cancer care and will present findings from studies that they have recently conducted.
Dr. Marisa Weiss is the founder and chief medical officer of Breastcancer.org, the world’s leading online resource for expert medical and personal information on breast health and breast cancer. In addition to her clinical practice in Pennsylvania (US), she is an author and a sough-after speaker in professional events and in the media. Dr. Weiss will present a study that she led which sheds light on cannabis use among breast cancer patients from the USA.
Prof. Gil Bar Sela is the Director of Oncology & Hematology Division at Emek Medical Canter (Israel). He currently serves as the elected Chairman of the Israeli Association for Clinical Oncology and Radiation Therapy, and also the Chairman of the Clinical Board of Oncology, Ruth and Bruce Rappoprt Faculty of Medicine, Technion Israel Institute of Technology. Prof. Bar-Sela has published extensively in the scientific literature on topics such as palliative care and complementary medicine in oncology. He will present his study on chronic cannabis use during immunotherapy treatments.

Webinar: National Perspectives on Cannabis Regulations and Research: Part I

Date: March 30, 2021 @ 04:00 PM CEST/05:00 PM Israel IDT

The non-harmonized regulations have unique implications for scientific and research efforts, as well as for the industry, the global trade, and the conduct of business in general.
As ‘insiders’, local stakeholders hold an exclusive standpoint and insight about the current and prospective developments of medical cannabis within their respective territory. In this CannX webinar, two high-level members of the medical cannabis community will share updated and important information about the development of medical cannabis in their countries: Dr. Marco Ternelli, PhD from Italy and Dr. Paola Cubillos from Colombia.

Webinar: Real-World Evidence and Medical Cannabis

Date: October 20, 2020 @ 05:00 PM in Jerusalem (GMT+3:00)

The FDA defines Real-World Evidence as the “clinical evidence regarding the usage and potential benefits or risks of a medical product derived from analysis of Real-world data”. Although double-blind randomized trials have been the “holy grail” in clinical studies for decades, Real-World Evidence is increasingly playing an important role in health care decision. This development is partly facilitated by the use of computers, mobile devices and other digital platforms. Given that cannabis is being used by millions of patients worldwide, without being proven as safe and effective by randomized trials, Real-World Evidence is an invaluable tool for advising clinicians and patients alike regarding safe and effective usage of medical cannabis.

In this CannX webinar, two experts of Real-World Evidence on medical cannabis will present substantial data and discuss directions for future developments.

Moderator: Dr. Yuval Zolotov, Senior Research Associate, Regional Alcohol and Drug Abuse Research Center, Ben Gurion University of the Negev (Israel)

  • Joshua Aviram Postdoctoral Fellow, Prof. Meiri’s Laboratory of Cancer Biology and Cannabinoid Research, Faculty of Biology, Technion –Institute of Technology (Israel)
  • David Berg President & Chief Technical Officer, Strainprint (Canada)
