The creation of hybrid nanomaterials based on graphite is highly significant for various uses, including biomedical, electrochemical, energy storage, therapeutic, optoelectronic, gas sensing and more. The use of graphene in the medical industry has inspired researchers to find uses for graphite-based nanomaterials in the delivery of drugs among graphitic-based materials.Using nanoparticles to deliver cancer drugs offers a way to hit tumors with large doses of drugs while avoiding the harmful side effects that often come with chemotherapy. However, so far, only a handful of nanoparticle-based cancer drugs have been FDA-approved.
Things just got more convenient for medical cannabis patients in Ontario. On Tuesday, the popular pharmacy chain Shoppers Drug Mart launched its online retail portal for medical cannabis products. Shoppers is a national chain, but for now it will only supply Ontario residents. Licensed patients will have to submit some paperwork in order to access the online store. Retail cannabis consumers, however, cannot make purchases, but they are able to browse the store’s offerings.
