Well-documented as a botanical medicine for over 5,000 years, the cannabis plant’s biochemistry, mechanisms of action, and anecdotal versus evidence-based safety & efficacy profiles have recently become the subject of intense scientific and legislative scrutiny.
Our lectures discuss the ethnobotanical and cultural use considerations of a plant now known to contain therapeutic balances of phytocannabinoid and terpenoid compounds that are challenging some of the world’s foremost researchers and awaiting clinicians.
These chemicals have revealed the endocannabinoid receptor system; a previously unknown ubiquitous receptor system responsible for maintaining physiological balances that are essential in sustaining animal life. Future innovations will abound as international researchers use 21st century science data to position for cannabis’ reintroduction back into modern healthcare’s therapeutics.
