Keynote Presentation: Better Science - Better Quality of Life

Speaker

Abstract

For 100 years the cannabis plant has been demonized, made illegal, and kept from researchers.

Recently, states have begun to take the situation into their own hands, enabling patients to begin accessing it. With the country at 29 legalized states, it’s safe to say the tipping point has been reached and there is no turning back.

Federal restrictions have kept us from accessing the science behind cannabis. Unfortunately, research is far behind because the science is behind. With pockets of scientific research starting to happen across the United States - and technology helping us tie it all together, it’s time to start making some serious headway.

Overall, better science will enable us identify targeted therapies that will improve the quality of life.

We know that Patients are experiencing a better quality of life, but there is a large gap in why.


Learning Objectives:

  • Cannabis History and Uses
  • What Lies Ahead for Cannabis as a Medicine (or) Utilizing Science and Technology to Break the Handcuffs on Cannabis Research
