About the Speaker and the Program

Medical cannabis is steamrolling across the country. With legalization of this ancient herb expanding across the globe, consumers will be seeking advice and guidance about its use for a myriad of health issues. Yet, few, if any, healthcare professionals have learned about medical marijuana and the endocannabinoid system in their training. This session will illuminate the exciting advances in medical cannabis care.
