WHAT IS THE AIM AND OBJECTIVE OF 2017 MEDICAL CANNABIS CONFERENCE?

The expert conference on medical cannabis and cannabinoids is a forum for scientists and other experts, practitioners in the field such as medical doctors, pharmacists, medical nurses and other medical staff, for patient activists, for decision makers and for general public – and last but not least, the media. The main objective of the conference is to bring the latest information and best practices on introduction of medical cannabis into modern evidence-based medicine and to help to establish the use of medical cannabis as a standard medical procedure.
