Rochester, N.Y., August 6, 2020 — The 2020 Virtual Conference on the Medicinal Development of Cannabis and Cannabinoids will be streamed online August 11th from 1pm-6pm EST, keynoted by world renowned scientist Dr. Ethan Russo.
The event is being hosted by Rochester based NY HempLab and United Scientific Group, an internationally recognized organization committed to scientific education and excellence. This half day symposium will explore the cutting edge research and development in medical cannabis and cannabinoids, both plant based and synthetic, from around the world.
Event chair, Harold Smith, PhD in molecular and cell biology and Professor at the University of Rochester said:
“Most people working in the medicinal Cannabis space agree that there needs to be greater validation of how cannabinoids and terpenes target human biology when delivered alone and in plant derived combination products. To know how Cannabis ‘works’ in the body one needs to understand the chemistry that is effecting change, known in the pharmacology industry as the Active Pharmacological Ingredient or API. In other words, which cannabinoids are necessary and sufficient to effect a change in human health. Our conference will bring together world renown experts whose work seeks to understand the medicinal value of cannabinoids as individual synthetic compounds or as full spectrum cannabinoids produced from natural or genetically selected plants. Science is the foundation from which the medical and business opportunities in medicinal Cannabis will be realized and we are excited to be part of this cutting edge conversation.”
