While medical cannabis is legal in Canada, it is not available in the pharmacy and is considered an “unrecognized treatment” by the Collège des Médecins du Québec. We are working to change that.

We are currently running and actively recruiting patients for two Health-Canada approved studies. With the first large-scale study in the world, we are investigating the effect of inhaled cannabis in patients with cancer pain. We are also studying symptom relief using cannabis oil capsules in patients with chronic pain (cancer and non-cancer).

All cannabis products are provided during the trial period.

Both trials are funded by Tetra Bio-Pharma, a global biopharmaceutical leader in the clinical research and development of cannabinoid drugs and natural health products. The ultimate goal of these studies is to achieve approval for the studied product as a prescription drug.

Please note that patients currently using cannabis are not eligible for the study.
