With all the hype around CBD, the abundance of recreational products in dispensaries, the high cost of products, and the slow embrace of the medical community to seize the opportunity that cannabis can enhance well-being, patients are stranded in a marketing blitz of unvetted information. At this special event, Dr. Laurie Vollen will share the basics of medical marijuana to help sort the confusion and offer practical direction.
Dr. Vollen believes sound patient guidance is key to getting the benefits of cannabinoids and the therapeutic potential of marijuana. With more than 13,000 patient encounters and nearly twenty years of experience facilitating the safe and effective use of medical marijuana, Dr. Vollen will explain:

1. why cannabis is NOT alternative medicine but conventional medicine

2. what constituents of marijuana are primarily responsible for its medicinal value

3. how to administer the medicine to achieve medicinal benefits

4. and what the missing link is in achieving medicinal relief with cannabis

After Dr. Vollen’s presentation, she’ll answer your questions in a moderated Q&A.

At her medical practice, Naturally Healing MD on Solano Avenue in Albany, Dr. Laurie Vollen strives to provide comprehensive guidance, which is exclusively devoted to clinical cannabinoid medicine.

No cannabis or cannabis products will be sold or provided at this event.

Doors open at 6:30, presentation begins at 7:00.
