PLANT, DRUG MEDICINE — ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT CANNABIS
Presenter: Dr. Shawn Meirovici, ND
In April 2019 Ontario will see it’s first brick and mortar legal cannabis dispensaries. This evening’s seminar will be structured as if you were undergoing training to be an expert “bud-tender” at a fictional cannabis retail location. In 2018 Canada became the second country to legalize cannabis nationally. In its wake there remains a great deal of misinformation and lack of education around cannabis as a recreational drug and a botanical with medicinal value. By attending this seminar you will gain a solid understanding about Cannabis as a plant, a drug and as a medicine.
Your “training” will be divided into four sections:
• Know your weed (Phenotypes, Chemotypes, Chemovars, Cannabinoids, Terpenes)
• How cannabis works (The Endocannabinoid System)
• Dosing and Administration
• Scenarios/Case Studies
Key Topics will include:
• Hemp vs. Marijuana
• Indica vs. Sativa
• Types 1-4 and strains
• Cannabinoids: Delta-9 THC, CBD, CBG, THCV
• Terpenes: Alpha Pinene, D-Limonene, Beta Myrcene, Beta Caryophylene,
• The Endocannabinoid System and Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome
• Safety, Adverse Effects, Methods of Administration, Pharmacokinetics, Synergy, Contraindications, Drug Interactions.
