Sunday House Call, #892, September 3, 2023: Cannabis Reality Does Not Necessarily Jive with Anecdotal Evidence

There are studies that come out that can potentially run contrary to the popular wisdom or urban mythos that subsequently receives a lot of pushback in response to new evidence. One such study from the University of Ottawa published in the British Medical Journal reviews 100 relevant clinical trials and meta-analyses regarding cannabis use and its purported benefits. The findings and evidence do not support the benefits of cannabis for various health problems and found limited evidence that helps with seizures, muscle spasms, chronic pain, and sleep but only for certain patients.
