Cannabis has long been used by man in a variety of ways for a variety of reasons. Today, we are beginning to understand how the plant can be applied usefully in lifestyle as well as specifically in medical treatment. This talk is designed as an introductory overview of cannabis, its constituents and the current understanding regarding how those constituents interact with the body. The California cannabis market is in transition as the industry is still implementing the regulatory framework. This has allowed the recreational market to create an environment with diversity of claims; however, the science behind the application of cannabis is only emerging. This talk will help give insight as to where current science stands regarding cannabis applications as well as explore some novel approaches in its use.
