Medical cannabinoids

This a difficult subject as there is a there is a vast amount of misinformation out there.

Everybody knows somebody who has been apparently helped/cured by cannabis of various types but this is merely anecdotal. Unfortunately there is a lot of money to be made and so you have to be very careful where you get your information from.

One of the best websites that I have found is "Toward Optimised Practice", an Alberta website which looks at current medical evidence to make evidenced based guidelines- the best kind!

This is a link to their patient hand out

This is a link to the guideline they produced for doctors- again- evidence based

DONATING


Blood Donation

https://blood.ca/en

We are sometimes asked if we know someones blood type. Occasionally we do if you have had a baby, a major operation or needed a transfusion. We cannot check otherwise. Donating blood is the best way to find out and helps others!
