Let's talk cannabis and keto heads to Nottingham

Lets talk cannabis and keto 20 November 2018

With the recent change in UK law for medical cannabis and laws rapidly changing around the world, it can be very confusing as a cancer patient to know how this might effect you. There is increasing evidence racking up to support the positive effects of cannabis for people with chronic illnesses and we need to start talking about it. What evidence is out there? What are the side effects? We will explore this further.

The ketogenic diet—also called the keto diet—consists of foods that are high in fat, moderate-to-low in protein, and very low in carbohydrates. It sends the body into a state of ketosis, resulting in the formation of molecules known as ketones. This process occurs when the body is forced to use fat for energy in the absence of carbohydrates.

There is gorwing speculation that a keto diet can help cancer patients starve cancer cells by preventing the cells from using glucose for energy and growth. But what are the pros and cons for following this diet?

There are more and more anecdotal cases of the keto diet being used in combination with cannabis as a treatment for brain tumours. We invite a special guest to share his personal experience with this.

In this talk, we will be discussing the following topics:

  • The treasure trove of Cannabis Sativa
  • Historical uses of cannabinoid-based medicines
  • Clinical use of cannabinoid-based medicines
  • Cannabinoids and cancer
  • Side effects
  • What’s for sale
  • A real life cancer experience - cannabis used in combination with the ketogenic diet
  • Pros and cons of the ketogenic diet as experienced by patients with brain tumours

There will be Q & A sessions after each talk.
