Cannabis: A Botanical Medicine
Patients Out of Time comes of age this year–celebrating our 21st year as the leading source of accredited education on the newly discovered endocannabinoid system and the therapeutic use of natural cannabis!
We hope you will join us at the Baltimore Harbor Hotel for The Tenth National Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics, April 14-16. The 2016 theme – Cannabis: A Botanical Medicine – is in celebration of this remarkable plant. This interdisciplinary conference will bring together leaders in the herbal/botanical world with cannabis/cannabinoid researchers, clinicians, patients and caregivers. Our faculty includes speakers from Canada, Israel, Hungary, Scotland, Spain and across the US. The agenda (as of Feb 26) is posted here. Click here for a full list of faculty.
Prior to the main conference, we will hold several pre-conference Workshops on Thursday, April 14th. In the morning, Clinicians should see the new science on dosing with cannabis, including animal-study results followed by individualized human dosing and lab-tested cannabis formulations. For health care providers, we encourage you to attend The Medical Cannabis Toolbox, teaching both newcomers and those with experience about ingestion methods, the human Endocannabinoid System, and legalities related to recommending. For lawyers, policy makers, and practitioners interested in legal issues we have a legal seminar in which renowned experts will teach about dispensary and banking rules, medical necessity, and using science in defense strategy. And finally, we are offering a workshop designed especially for our military Veterans and their family members to help them understand the potential value of medical cannabis, outreach techniques, and their rights related to the use of this medicine.
With 23 medical cannabis states and an additional 17 states with CBD-only cannabis laws, it is imperative for health care providers to understand how to use this botanical medicine, the relative risks and benefits, as well as how it interacts with the endocannabinoid system. Patients are using this medicine and they look for guidance from their health care provider. Along with presenting state-of-the-art science, this conference offers an excellent opportunity to network with colleagues and see new products and sources of information from our Exhibitors.
And don’t forget to register for the Friday night benefit dinner! A lovely dinner cruise on a private charter, with sunset views of the harbor and the city skyline. Along with a great meal, we’ll have music plus a live auction, featuring art and memorabilia. Not to be missed!
