Since Florida lacks education on cannabis as medicine, Florida-based Canna Holdings brings together an esteemed group of physicians, medical practitioners, attorneys and industry experts for the second medical symposium in the state of Florida. Experts Dustin Sulak, M.D., Gregory Gerdeman, Ph.D., and Gregory Smith, M.D., will speak and present scientific research on how medical marijuana can benefit debilitating conditions such as pain and Alzheimer’s disease. A group of Florida licensed attorneys will sit on a legal panel to discuss key points from Amendment 2 and potential liability issues.
“Our goal for the symposium is to create an environment where physicians and medical professionals can learn about the science and research behind medical cannabis and the human endocannabinoid system,” says Gregg H. Weiss, founder of Canna Holdings and event organizer. “In addition to CMEs, our event will confront the legal issues Florida physicians are facing. Education is a key component to a successful rollout of the medical marijuana program in Florida. If physicians do not have the facts along with recent science and research, it will be nearly impossible for the projected 450,000 patients in Florida to have access to this medicine”.
The South Florida Medical Cannabis Symposium is specifically targeted towards licensed Florida Physicians in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade Counties. With the overwhelming passage of Amendment 2 and the current confusion on how the program will be rolled, physician education and legal guidance are critical.
Dr. Dustin Sulak, commented, “Thousands of patients and their doctors want to know how it’s possible that one herb can safely and effectively treat so many medical conditions. The answer lies in the endocannabinoid system. Strangely, endocannabinoid physiology is omitted from almost every medical school curriculum - it’s time for health care providers to discover what researchers know to be the one of the most important physiologic system involved in establishing and maintaining human health. I’m excited to be a part of the symposium that Canna Holdings has organized - it will ultimately benefit patients more than anyone else”.
The symposium is scheduled for Saturday, March 11, 2017 at The Westin in Fort Lauderdale. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. Tickets can be reserved prior to the event at CannaHoldings.com. Only 300 tickets will be sold for this exclusive event on a first come, first serve basis.
