Subjects to be covered in this workshop:
– Introduction to the endocannabinoid system and its involvement in the control of basic cellular and physiological functions.
– Cannabis for the treatment of four different groups of pathologies: seizure disorders, pain, immune disorders and cancer.
– Molecular bases of the corresponding physiological (non-pathological) processes: neurotransmission, pain perception, immune response and cell fate. Alterations of these mechanisms in pathological contexts.
– Clinical data proving efficacy of cannabis.
– Cannabis strain selection and dosing protocols
