The best physicians are meeting in Florida in order to further explore the endocannabinoid system. This will allow these physicians to learn about the medical benefits of marijuana, especially in treating the Alzheimer’s disease, as well as its use as an analgesic. This will also allow doctors to learn how to professionally treat many of the patients in Florida who are using medical cannabis.

Lawmakers in the state are currently looking to research the most recent set of regulations, which will cover marijuana edibles, vaping and smoking practices. This futuristic thinking has occurred after 72% Florida residents voted to legalize cannabis last November, which brings about the subject of regulating MMJ (Medical Marijuana). The time is now ripe enough to educate the medical community and this project has been undertaken by Canna Holdings of Florida.

Greg Weiss, the founder of Canna Holdings told the High Times that their goal is to allow the physicians to increase their knowledge of medical marijuana by asking questions to the experts in a research based environment through this particular symposium. This knowledge will improve their delivery of MMJ treatments to patients in the state.

There are 500,000 MMJ patients in the state, and therefore, it is essential for the physicians and other medical workers to acquire more information. Weiss further stated that it is essential to educate the physicians, if we want to successfully implement a medical marijuana program in Florida. He stresses that it is necessary to educate the doctors and take them on board for implementing a successful MMJ strategy.

There are around 600 physicians which are currently registered with the Office of Compassionate Use in the state. Scientific experts will present a number of cannabinoids studies at the symposium, which will help the doctors understand how they can be used for alleviating pain and treating the Alzheimer’s disease.

One of the leading experts on the endocannabinoid system in the country is Dr. Gerdeman with over twenty years of experience. He gives a positive point of view of this symposium by stating that this type of educational event is hard to find, even if great speakers are available at the event. He is a professor of biology at Eckerd College, Florida, and described that the endocannabinoid system was identified when cannabis was being studied.

Gerdeman also believes that this symposium presents an exclusive opportunity to educate important people. He states that Canna Holdings is truly serving the medical community of the state by hosting events with particular learning objectives.

His colleague Dr. Dustin Sulak, a speaker at the symposium, also agrees in this regard. Sulak further states that this conference will allow thousands of people to learn how cannabis can be safely used to treat multiple medical issues. Sulak and Gerdeman have both studied the endocannabinoid system and believe that it is an important neuroscience topic.

Sulak has also written an essay in this regard, in which he presents that people are now demanding more details about MMJ, and this is changing the situation about the current lack of general information. He further stresses that people want to know about the treatments that are natural and inexpensive and help the body to heal up quicker. This will improve the quality of life. He explains that MMJ is a natural solution in this regard.

Canna Holdings is playing an important in this regard, by filling the education gap with this symposium. In fact, Weiss also told that he believes that it is essential for the physicians to receive scientific information regarding cannabis, in order to better help their patients.

The first education symposium was held last year in September. Weiss states that the next one should ideally occur in June this year, in Orlando, Florida. Their company will then go on to target other states, such as Pennsylvania and Ohio, which have legalized medical marijuana.
