This is a notice of a conference of significance in the medical cannabis field. The Research Summit will be held on March 22-23 at the Natcher Conference Center on the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, Maryland.

After viewing the advertisement for the event I question the premise, as the cannabinoid system itself has no adverse effects; the phrasing of the event’s summary implies a bias toward finding harm, a charge that Dr. Sanjay Gupta and other have levied against the NIH and NIDA for some time.

The discussions will include a Michigan contingent, as Dr. Christine Rabinak from Wayne State University will participate in the section reserved for Therapeutic Potential: Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Pain, PTSD/Anxiety. 

She was the lead author on a paper published in 2013 regarding marijuana use and PTSD.

Get Expert Medical Cannabis Info For Free At The Virtual Cannabis Health Summit

Category: Events | Posted on Mon, January, 18th 2016 by THCFinder

virtual cannabis health summitGetting quality medical cannabis information is not as easy as people would think. You can search online all day, and be left wondering what information you read was credible and what wasn’t. Likewise, you can go to your doctor for advice but chances are they either won’t want to talk about it at all, or don’t know what to tell you.

I get asked by people all the time about how medical cannabis helps particular conditions. I have researched a lot of those conditions over the years, but in no way am I a medical professional, so I always tell people to take the info with a grain of salt. One thing that I’m recommending everyone check out is the upcoming Virtual Cannabis Health Summit. It’s a FREE event, and can be viewed via the internet in the privacy of your own home.

I have traveled to lots of events and have heard a lot of medical cannabis presentations, and I always value those experiences because getting advice and info from a qualified medical professional that has a lot of experience with cannabis is rare. The Virtual Cannabis Health Summit is occurring January 23-24 (next weekend) and it will feature the following speakers, all experts in their fields:

Who Will Be Speaking At The Free Virtual Cannabis Health Summit On January 23-24?

Category: Events | Posted on Thu, January, 14th 2016 by THCFinder

virtual cannabis summitThe topic of medical marijuana is very complex. It’s more than just buying a bag of cannabis from someone, rolling it into joints, and smoking it. Chances are if you are reading this blog post, it’s because you suffer from some type of ailment or condition, and want to know more about how medical cannabis can help your situation. I know a lot of people that are in that boat, and get e-mails from people everyday asking for advice on how to treat their ailment or condition.

I always tell them that while I have researched the topic a lot, I’m in no way an expert. Fortunately there are people out there that are experts in their fields, and have a wealth of knowledge on all things medical cannabis related. There is a FREE event coming up, the Virtual Cannabis Health Summit, that will feature 20+ experts in their fields. You can watch the entire event from the privacy of your own home, and again, it’s free (the best price!). All you have to do to sign up for the event isclick this link, and enter in your e-mail address. Below is a list of who will be speaking at the event:

Steve DeAngelo – Harborside Health Center
Uwe Blesching – Cannabis Health Index

Check Out A Free Virtual Cannabis Health Summit On January 23-24

Category: Events | Posted on Mon, January, 11th 2016 by THCFinder

virtual cannabis summitThere are so many cannabis events these days. Some focus on industry, some focus on entertainment, and others focus on any number of other niches/topics within the marijuana world. I don’t attend many events, mainly because I don’t like to travel. More often than not I wait for an event to be over, and then try to find video footage from it on YouTube and live vicariously through others with camera phones.

That’s why I was really excited to learn about an upcoming cannabis event that focuses on health and is going to be streamed live online. I don’t have to travel anywhere, I don’t even have to buy a ticket. The 1st Virtual Cannabis Health Summit is going to be streamed live for free. That’s right, free! That’s my favorite price!

The event is going to focus entirely on cannabis and health, which is a very popular topic these days. Probably the most common type of e-mail I receive is someone asking how cannabis can help their condition(s). I am by no means a doctor, so I usually send over what links I can find for their condition and tell them to take it with a grain of salt. Between now and January 23 (first day of the two day event), I will be directing people to this virtual summit.

The summit will involve 20+ top doctors, scientists, and leaders who are all experts on the topic of cannabis and wellness. Some of the topics of the summit will include:

Cancer and cannabis
PTSD and cannabis
Pain and cannabis
The truth about CBD
Cannabis for pets
Better dosing strategies
Healthier consumption methods
Understand the endocannabinoid system
