Why Attend?

  • Recreational marijuana use is legal in 10 US states, while medicinal marijuana is legal in 33
  • CBD oils and CBD-containing products are appearing in specialty shops, pharmacies, and medical marijuana dispensaries.
  • Recent polls reveal that 55 million Americans currently use marijuana and one in every seven adults uses CBD products.
  • There is an increased possibility that members of the general public will be consuming cannabis or CBD along with prescription or over-the-counter medications.
  • As evidenced by the May 31, 2019 FDA public hearing, many other questions exist surrounding CBD safety in regard to consumption levels, consuming multiple products simultaneously, pregnancy and child exposure to CBD products, and prolonged usage of CBD.

This program is presented through a grant from Greenwich Bioscience.
