Additional Study Information:

Paclitaxel is frequently used to treat breast cancer, but it can also cause neuropathy where the nerves of the hands and feet stop working properly. The symptoms of neuropathy can include pain, numbness, and difficulty with everyday activities like walking or typing. Paclitaxel-induced neuropathy is common and there are few treatment options. Our study will test the effect of cannabis (marijuana) capsules on neuropathy caused by paclitaxel (or docetaxel) in breast cancer patients. The capsules are provided by Tilray, a certified medical cannabis producer and the protocol is FDA approved. Our study lasts for 8 weeks, with several visits per month and careful monitoring. Compensation provided for time and travel.
