Event Description

One of the most commonly asked questions that we receive in our webinars and on social media is regarding the use of CBD or medical marijuana during myeloma treatment. While this topic is controversial, many myeloma patients have found pain relief thanks to these medicines. But what should patients know about these products? What are the risks? And how could it potentially affect cancer treatment? Join Dr. Raghunathan as she shares with us the scientific information that is available to us at this time.
