Check Out One Of NCIA’s Quarterly Cannabis Caucuses In April

Category: Events | Posted on Tue, March, 8th 2016 by THCFinder

national cannabis industry association ncia arizonaI have attended a handful of National Cannabis Industry Association (NCIA) events, and literally every single one of them have been educational, empowering, and were fantastic for networking opportunities. NCIA does an outstanding job of advocating for its members and the cannabis industry as a whole, which is why I have always supported them. They also hire a lot of Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP) alumni, which is always a smart move and a surefire way to improve any organization or company.

One type of NCIA event that I haven’t attended yet is one of their ‘Quarterly Cannabis Caucuses.’ The first round of caucuses took place in January, and I heard from several people that they were amazing. I am going to try as hard as I can to get up to the Portland caucus on April 12th to check it out. Looking at some of the people that have been talking about it on social media, it is shaping up to be an amazing event.

I really like the concept of quarterly regional events, and tip my hat to NCIA for putting these on. The cannabis industry landscape is changing at a rapid pace, with stuff changing/evolving constantly. I know in my state, Oregon, you never really know 100% what is going on with so many changes being proposed/approved and so many hearings, etc. Having a meeting every three months to get a lot of people in the same room to get educated and educate each other is a great idea in my opinion.

This March, The 420 Games will debut in Los Angeles, the first leg of a four-state, six-city tour.

“Our attendance has doubled from the first event to the second, we expect thousands of people to come run or walk for cannabis respect on March 26th in LA.

Marijuana And Cannabinoids: A Neuroscience Research Summit

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:

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.
