Topic:  Using Cannabis as Medicine

Language: English

Speaker: Dr. William O. Hardman


Since the legalization of medicinal cannabis in 2001 by the Canadian Government an increasing percentage of the population have an interest in how to best use this natural plant to address their health issues. At this time, it is outside our scope of practice to prescribe medicinal cannabis, and the intent of this lecture is to provide you scientifically proven information so you can better answer questions you may receive from your patients. It is of upmost importance that we stay within the limitations of our current scope of practice to protect the integrity of our profession.

This lecture will cover some of the benefits, myths, and barriers around the medicinal use of Cannabis. We’ll talk about the history of the plant following a brief overview time line from the oldest written description of Cannabis, circa 2350 B.C. to modern day. We’ll talk about the Endocannabinoid System in the human body and how it works and explain the location and function of the Type 1 (CB1) and Type 2 (CB2) receptors.

Science has proven the pharmaceutics of Cannabis and identified over 400 different compounds which are the phytocannabinoids, terpenoids and flavonoids that are found in the numerous varieties grown all over the world. We’ll discuss some of the ailments that have been scientifically proven to respond to medicinal cannabis, and what the best uses and/or combinations of THC and CBD are. You will learn about the “Entourage Effect” and why less is usually more effective, depending upon the individual “threshold”.

We’ll talk about the medical risks of Cannabis use and how to avoid them. I’ll talk about how I was able to avoid pharmaceuticals and accelerate my recovery from a recent total knee replacement surgery using medicinal cannabis and Chinese herbs. In conclusion I’ll present an overview of a couple of case histories where patients combined medicinal cannabis and TCM to heal their cancer.

Speaker’s Brief Bio:

Since graduating with distinction from the Canadian College of Chinese Studies in Victoria, BC in 1991, Dr. Hardman has practiced continuously for the past 28 years. In his practice “Dr. Bill” has extensive experience in treating acute and chronic pain, allergies, cancer, complex digestive ailments including Crohn’s disease and IBS, immune enhancement, nutritional counseling, soft tissue injuries including sports injuries and whiplash, stress headaches and migraines, and women’s health issues including gestational care. He has also provided serious illness management to patients in the Vancouver General Hospital’s intensive care unit (ICU); and he has provided palliative care at both Burnaby General and Eagle Ridge hospitals Extended Care units.

As a public spokesperson for the profession, Bill has been interviewed as a guest Acupuncture expert on both CBC and on CKNW radio. As well, he has served as guest host for the popular “House Calls” program on CKNW.
He has been a featured speaker on specialty acupuncture techniques at two International Conferences on Traditional Chinese Medicine and he is a popular presenter of Continuing Education topics for his profession. Bill has taught at the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Victoria and he taught Western Medicine for Traditional Chinese Medicine at the Shanghai College of TCM in Burnaby, BC. His experience as an athlete and a coach of Canada’s National Sport Parachuting Team sparked his initiative to become a co-founder and charter member of the Sport Acupuncturists Group of British Columbia – gaining recognition from Sports Med BC.

After medical cannabis was legalized in Canada in 2001, he started receiving information requests from patients, and wanting to be able to provide factually informative answers, Dr. Bill started researching the truth about this magnificent healing plant that had been wrongfully discredited for almost a decade. In his lecture he will share some of the key scientific evidence about the beneficial aspects and the pharmacokinetics of cannabis medicine.
