Thanks to the feedback from prior attendees after our June visit to the Villages, we have since streamlines our conferences to provide a solid base understanding of medical cannabis, and a good jumping off point into further reliable research!

Eager Listeners

At this point in his pivotal “Applications of Medical Marijuana” presentation, Vance shows a chart depicting safe-dose to toxic-dose ratios in common drugs, including Advil, Adderall, and alcohol. Attendees had plenty of questions about chemical overdose in painkillers and specific medications, and Dr. Dorn joined our speaker for a few minutes to provide additional insight into America’s opioid crisis.

Thank You to Attendees!

With some extra chairs and some creative rearranging as the room began to overflow, we were able to fit over 100 attendees into each session of the conference! Thank you to the community for coming out to learn, and getting so involved in each of the interactive sections. Education is the key to a greater understanding, and together we can help change perceptions and uncover truths about this incredible medical phenomenon.
