Cannabis is consumed recreationally or for medical reasons in 5–15% of the Israeli population; however, the perioperative effects of cannabis use on anesthesia and surgery are poorly understood.

We have received a grant and preliminary IRB approval to study the effects of a cannabis extract as anesthetic premedication on perioperative anxiety, and on postoperative pain, nausea, and vomiting.
