Cannabis Science and Technology Magazine Interview

Cannabis Science and Technology Magazine Interview

Dr. Fisher was interviewed by Madeline Colli of Cannabis Science and Technology magazine for an article posted on September 1 titled, Whole Plant Medicine Is the Future. For the interview, Dr. Fisher provides a brief overview of her accompanying analysis, Transitioning to 21st Century Medicine: The Promise of Whole Plant Medicine, and what she hoped to achieve by writing it. To this question, she replies,

But I think the current healthcare system is failing a lot of patients. As a game theorist and researcher, I’ve seen how the system has evolved, and I understand why it generates the outcomes it does. A good friend once told me that it’s useless for a consultant to tell someone they have a problem unless she can also tell that person how to fix the problem. My purpose for writing this article is to tell people what the problem is, why it exists, and how to fix it.

How Do You Fit Cannabis Into Western Medicine? The Cannabis Conversation

How Do You Fit Cannabis Into Western Medicine? The Cannabis Conversation

The Cannabis Conversation Podcast, hosted by Anuj Desai, is a discussion with industry leaders to help cannabis businesses grow through learning and collaboration. Dr. Fisher was the guest on Episode #121. The topic of the discussion was: How Do You Fit Cannabis into Western Medicine?

The heart of the discussion was led by a few important questions. Why doesn't cannabis fit into the traditional paradigm used in Western medicine? Specifically, Ruth and Anuj discussed how the general approach of Western Medicine is to use synthetically created therapeutics with a single active ingredient. The use of whole-plant cannabis extracts is inconsistent with this paradigm. Next, why are physicians are so reluctant to prescribe cannabis for their patients? Lastly, there was a question of clinical research: the use of real-world data, rather than more traditional randomized controlled trials, can be used to establish cannabis efficacy in patients.
