Medical Cannabis
5pm PDT, 7pm CDT & 8pm EDT
Monday, November 6th, 2017
The Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to announce its first forum on one of the most interesting, timely, and controversial topics in medicine: medical cannabis. At the genesis of the functional and integrative medicine movement in the 1960’s, there were a number of doctors who realized that cannabis was a powerful herb and had significant healing properties. This led to the further discussion of other herbs and other natural compounds that could affect health in a meaningful way. In this forum, we will look at all aspects to do with medical cannabis. This information is useful whether you are in America or in any other country around the world. We look forward to a really exciting forum. 
Our first keynote speaker is Raphael Mechoulam, Ph.D. Dr. Mechoulam is a pioneer in the field of cannabis research and the godfather of research into the endocannabinoid system. He is an organic chemist and professor of medicinal chemistry at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel.
Joining him will be Jeffrey Chen, M.D. Dr. Chen is the director at the UCLA Cannabis Research Institute and leads a group of forty faculty and staff. His current focus is accelerating research into potential medical uses and side effects of cannabis and its constituent cannabinoids.
We'll be hearing from Dr. Stuart Silverman, a practicing physician and rheumatologist. He's going to share with us the practicalities of using medical cannabis in a private practice, particularly for elements related to chronic pain.
Also, joining us will be Laura Lagano, M.S., R.D.N., C.D.N., a functional medicine dietitian. As one of the original members of the NYC functional forum community, Laura is passionate about connecting functional medicine and the cannabis community. She is one of the co-founders of the Holistic Cannabis Academy, a training program designed to help all practitioners, regardless of their licensing or certification or credentials, to understand how cannabis, cannabinoids, and constituent parts can be used in medical care.



*The interview with Dr. Raphael Mechoulam was conducted by the Holistic Cannabis Academy and we thank them for allowing us to use this footage for the show.
