Join us on the ACHS campus at 5005 SW Macadam Ave or virtually via a live stream on Tuesday, January 26, 2016, from 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. PST for a more in-depth understanding of the attributes and applications of medicinal cannabis!
This presentation contains the definitions of endogenous and exogenous cannabinoids and the endocannabinoid system. We'll explore the various phytocannabinoids of interest and their respective attributes and applications. We'll also discuss most aspects of cannabis chemistry, including associated non-cannabinoid plant substances that contribute to the effects and efficacy of the whole plant products. Toxicology, dosing and medicinal testing, as well as some of the medicolegal circumstances will also be covered.
