Medical Cannabis in Texas
Matt Atwood
There seems to be more misinformation than information about medical cannabis in the LoneStar State. In this presentation, you will learn the basics in cannabinoid science, the political push-back, and the difference between what you think you know and what you should know. After this presentation, you will have a better knowledge base to make more of an educated decision on your own personal and professional stance on this controversial topic.
  1. Differentiate between fact and fiction, politics and medicine
  2. Feel confident discussing medical cannabis with patients when they ask
  3. Feel comfortable about the plant and endocannabinoid system
  4. Open your mind regarding the medical possibilities ahead
