Dr. James Adams’ medical cannabis article

James Adams, PhD, of USC School of Pharmacy will present two talks on medical cannabis at MediCannaCon, the Ojai Medical Cannabis Conference, on Saturday, May 4, 2019. He recently published an excellent article on the pharmacology of cannabis at the scholarly website, TheConversation.com/US, part of a global network of independent, not-for-profit newsrooms first launched in Australia in 2011. The article was picked up by Associated Press and spread around the world. I encourage you to read it as it is filled with up-to-date information and links to recent studies on the benefits of medical cannabis.

As he explains in the article, “Marijuana is a particularly rich source of medicinal compounds that we have only begun to explore. In order to harness the full potential of the compounds in this plant, society needs to overcome misconceptions about marijuana and look at what research clearly says about the medical value.”

At the Ojai conference on May 4 Dr. Adams will speak on “Medical Uses of Full-Spectrum Cannabis” and “The Entourage Effect of Cannabis.” Other knowledgeable presenters include David Bearman, MD; Margaret Peterson, MD; and Susan Mark, RN, BSN, PHN.
