Today's Weed News For June 13th 2019 #HOSPICE

5 months ago


For today's weed news we go to the great state of Maryland.

According to a new study recently published by the Journal of Palliative Medicine, doctors as well as other health professionals almost unanimously believe that patients in hospice care should be allowed to use medical cannabis!

The above-mentioned study sampled 310 healthcare professionals from 40 states. Participants where surveyed by researchers from the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy.

What they found was that nearly 91% of the 310 professionals said that they endorse "the use of medical cannabis amongst hospice patients."

Furthermore, 90% the health professionals reported having answered questions from some of their patients pertaining to MMJ and its use. In addition, 73% of the sample of health professionals divulge that they have cared for patients who have used MMJ in the past.

"Regardless of legal status, hospice staff overwhelmingly support patient access to medical cannabis. Those who practice in states where medical cannabis is not yet legal wish that it was," wrote the University of Maryland School of Pharmacy researchers.

In their conclusion they added "the consensus of our survey sample is that medical cannabis appears to be relatively safe and effective for a variety of conditions and is being used by several routes of administration... Our findings highlight important opportunities to support hospice providers and their patients through education and the development of policies."

For me this is a no-brainer. If you are already in hospice care, you should be allowed whatever it is that makes you feel better. I absolutely agree with the healthcare professionals surveyed in thia study and believe that there's definitely a lot of benefit to be gained by allowing hospice patients to use medical cannabis.

Let's hope that it won't be long before all hospice centers allow their patients to enjoy the relief that cannabis can bring.

And that's what's up!

My mother is a hospice nurse. She has given some patients cannabis salve she made with the roots of my old plants and they swear it works amazing! One patient who was so against pot tried it without knowing it was made from pot and she LOVED it. It took away aches and pains for her like it was nothing! Absolutely you should do what you want while in hospice care for your final days!


Good podcast and good news to the state of Maryland for allowing their patients to be using medical cannabis for treatment
