Expanding Our Online Medical Cannabis Resources
By Trish Barbato, President and CEO, Arthritis Society
Like you, it’s important to us at the Arthritis Society
that people with questions about medical cannabis
get their information from a credible source.
It's the reason we continue to develop and expand our
resources about medical cannabis to treat arthritis symptoms.
From how medical cannabis differs from recreational
products to the different forms of medical cannabis, we
work to cover all the questions we know people living with
arthritis have about this potential treatment. We’ve recently
added to our resources, launching our Medical Cannabis
Patient Journey and Talking to Your Doctor about Medical
The Arthritis Society is committed to responding to
the pressing information needs of people with arthritis in
many areas. For example, we’re continually updating our
information online about COVID-19 and arthritis, including
up-to-date information about the vaccines, and we’re
expanding the ways in which we share information with
our audience. We now offer monthly Arthritis Talks webinars
with expert speakers on a range of topics, and have
launched an engaging podcast, flourish – The Podcast,
available wherever you listen to podcasts.
Thank you for being among the Canadians helping to
diminish the pain of arthritis. We encourage you to share
our resources with your patients at arthritis.ca.
