Assessing medicinal cannabis for children with advanced cancer.

by Marijuana Staff
“We aim to investigate if giving medicinal cannabis to children receiving palliative care for advanced cancer, improves their symptoms such as pain and sleep” - Associate Professor Herbert.

QUT has received almost $700,000 from the Medical Research Future Fund (MRFF) to assess the effectiveness, safe dosage and side-effects of two medicinal cannabis products for managing symptoms in children with advanced cancer.

The three-year trial is expected to start this year and will be led by QUT Adjunct Associate Professor Anthony Herbert who is also director of Children’s Health Queensland’s Paediatric Palliative Care Service.
