A researcher from the University of Alberta recently surveyed cancer patients in an attempt to gauge how many cancer patients in Canada use medical cannabis.
According to the results of the survey, thirty-four percent of survey participants reported as having used medical cannabis in 2016.
The results of the recent study show that the rate of medical cannabis use among cancer patients in Canada has increased nearly 7 percent compared to data from 2007.
The study’s author concluded: “Within this study cohort of Canadian adults with current cancer diagnosis, cannabis use is not uncommon. A history of cannabis use is associated with younger age, male sex, white race, non-married status, and higher income.”
