Cannabis Research: The Short Road Traveled and the Long Road Ahead

Speaker
  • Research Director, The Lambert Center for the Study of Medicinal Cannabis & Hemp, Adjunct Assistant Professor of Psychology, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania School of Med
    Biography
      Dr. Marcel O. Bonn-Miller earned a BA in psychology and PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Vermont. He completed a pre-doctoral clinical psychology internship at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System and a joint postdoctoral fellowship at the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System & Stanford University School of Medicine.

      Widely considered one of the early and leading research pioneers in the field of cannabis and mental health, Dr. Bonn-Miller has conducted seminal work on the interrelations between cannabis and a range of health conditions, including pain, anxiety, HIV, PTSD, and sleep disorders. Dr. Bonn-Miller brings a unique and diverse perspective to cannabinoid therapeutics, having worked within medical center and academic settings for over a decade and with industry for the past 5 years. He serves on the editorial boards of several scientific journals, has published well over 125 peer-reviewed empirical publications on cannabis, and has received dozens of Federal and State grants to support his research.

    Abstract

    There are currently 33 states and the District of Columbia that have legalized medical marijuana. The research supporting its medical use, however, lags behind current policy efforts. This talk will begin by providing an overview of cannabis, including its constituents, the landscape of available consumer cannabis products, and the nuanced regulatory climate within which cannabis currently resides. The research literature pertaining to the therapeutic potential of cannabis, underlying mechanisms of action, as well as common risks associated with cannabis use will then be reviewed. The talk will conclude with a discussion of recent and emerging areas of cannabis research. 

    Learning Objectives: 

    1. Broad understanding of the conditions for which there is solid evidence of cannabinoid therapeutic effects
    2. Understanding of the conditions for which medicinal cannabis research is lacking
    3. Understanding of the consequences associated with cannabis use
