United Patients Group Conference Panel To Discuss Opiate Dependency, Brain Injuries, And How Cannabis Can Help

Category: Events | Posted on Mon, May, 23rd 2016 by THCFinder

When someone gets hurt, chances are they are prescribed some type of painkiller or are directed to get an over the counter pain reliever to treat their injury/injuries. That was the case each time that I got hurt and had to see my doctor, usually for something that required x-rays. Every time they would try to push pills on me, and would scratch their heads when I said that I didn’t need any. ‘I’ll get it figured out,’ I would always tell my doctor, and he would always question what that meant. I would always smile and leave.

 

Cannabis is medicine. That’s a scientific fact. For many decades the medical properties of cannabis were kept secret, and the study of the plant’s ability to help mankind was prevented. Fortunately times are changing, and more and more is becoming known about the cannabis plant all the time. Using cannabis to treat injuries is effective, and doesn’t come with the laundry list of potential side effects that often accompany a pharmaceutical painkiller.

The United Patients Group is putting on a conference dedicated to science this weekend at Dominican University in San Rafael, California. Tomorrow is day two of the conference, and there will be a panel that includes former NFL player Brandon Haw from the Gridiron Cannabis Coalition, former NBA All Star Cliff Robinson from Uncle Spliffy Sports Cannabis, and Brian Keyner who is a former law enforcement officer that is also a brain injury patient. The panel will be discussing the topic of opiate dependency, brain injuries, and how cannabis can help.

This Weekend: Check Out The Panels At The FREE Virtual Cannabis Entrepreneur Summit

Category: Events | Posted on Sat, May, 21st 2016 by THCFinder

virtual cannabis entrepreneur summitThe first ever Virtual Cannabis Entrepreneur Summit takes place this weekend. It’s a completely free (yes, FREE!) event that will be live streamed over the internet, and is being put on by Green Flower Media. If you like cannabis, you will like this event which will feature dozens of 22-minute presentations by leading cannabis industry experts. All types of topics will be covered, from tips on how to get a cannabis industry license to the future of the cannabis industry and many things in between.

The event is going to be live streamed on the internet (again, for FREE!), so you can view it from the privacy of your own home. I’ve been looking forward to it for weeks now, and I’m so excited that it’s happening tomorrow. In addition to the individual presentations, there will also be some very good panels taking place during the event. The topic of one of them is ‘How To Create Better Cannabis Content That Builds Your Brand And Following.’ The participants of that panel include Joel Milton from Baker, Holli Alberti from Healthy Headie Lifestyle, and one of my favorite people to follow in the cannabis industry, Alan Brochstein from 420 Investor.

I have been following Alan for awhile now on social media, and he’s honestly one of my favorite follows out there because he speaks the truth. There is an ethics problem in the industry, whether people want to admit it or not. I get that ripping off band-aids is not profitable in the cannabis industry, but it’s absolutely vital. Alan tells it like it is, doesn’t hold punches, and calls people out that are harmful for the industry. I respect that beyond words, and I can’t wait to hear what he has to say at the Virtual Cannabis Entrepreneur Summit.

Learn What The Best Practices Are For Operating A Licensed Dispensary At The Cannabis Business Summit

There was a time in America when simply opening a dispensary was enough to succeed. All one had to do in a lot of areas was just be the first to open a dispensary in that area, and success was almost guaranteed. Times are a lot different now. States seem to fall in one of two categories – either there is a low barrier to entry and there are dispensaries everywhere with a high level of competition (Oregon), or there is an extremely high barrier to entry and a very stringent licensing process (New York). Either way, the days of simply signing a lease on a commercial storefront and putting some full jars on the shelves and instantly crushing it are going the way of the dinosaur.

The fact of the matter is you have to know your stuff. The average medical cannabis consumer is becoming more sophisticated every day. Some patients want certain strains in certain forms in certain dosage. Some patients want a variety. All patients want a place that is safe, professional, and affordable. Regulators want to make sure everything is in compliance at all times, and the amount of rules, regulations, and laws are extensive when it comes to running a dispensary in most areas. In addition to outdated federal regulations (280e anyone!?), dispensary owners need to know city, county, and state regulations as well.

We are ten days out from NORML’s 2016 Conference and Congressional Lobby Day and we are excited to share with you the full itinerary! Have you registered to attend? We have some fun events planned and it would be a shame for you to miss out!

Our ‘pre-registration’ social will be held at Eden Lounge the night of Sunday, May 22nd where we will have the place to ourselves for private mingling and relaxing. We’ll be welcoming those of you who are travelling from out of town and getting you checked into the event so you won’t have to worry about a thing on Monday morning. This party is free for those who pre-register for our Conference and Lobby Day but for those who wait till the last minute, you will have to pay a cover charge.

On Tuesday, May 24, during our morning reception on the Hill we have confirmed the participation of three prominent members of Congress: Congressman Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) and Congresswoman Suzan Delbene (D-WA). Each of them will take time to address NORML’s attendees. This is a unique chance to meet with and hear directly from some of our nation’s most important marijuana law reformers in an intimate setting. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and gain insight into the progress we are making at the federal level. Have you ever had the opportunity to speak directly with a member of Congress? Now is your chance!
