Cannabis for Pain Management


Now that cannabis is legal in California, you may be considering what role it can play in your health and wellness. Yet figuring out what’s right for you may feel overwhelming and intimidating. At this event we’ll separate the facts and science from the fiction and hype about the medicinal use of cannabis.

This informative evening on medicinal cannabis will help clarify what works for pain, first with Laurie Vollen, MD, MPH of Naturally Healing MD. Then Stephanie Mandeville from Care by Design, and Allie Greenstone of Mary's Medicinals, two award-winning manufacturers of cannabidiol products, join us to help demystify the multitude of choices available for treating pain. Our guest experts will also come together for a moderated Q&A to answer all of your questions about the safe and effective use of medicinal cannabis, and how to know what’s right for you.

Presented by green point and Berkeleyside.
