This program will cover epidemiology and pharmacology of cannabinoid and review evidence-based research and methods on the health effects of cannabis and cannabinoid.

Our speaker will discuss the neurobiology and therapeutic effects of cannabinoid, including on vomiting, pain and multiple sclerosis.
