The Cannabis Health Revolution: Understanding and Utilizing the Latest Science and Research
Host: Martin A. Lee
5 Sessions, Starts July 23

 

Learn from some of the world's leading medical experts how marijuana can be used for healing mind and body.

 
 
In recent years, the health benefits of cannabis have been at the center of some of the most exciting -- and underreported -- developments in science. Medical research on marijuana has led directly to a much deeper understanding of human biology, health and disease. At the same time, a renewed awareness of the healing properties of components of the marijuana plant, including THC and CBD, are opening new vistas for treating scores of illnesses.
 
  • Discover the latest research that demonstrates cannabis' effectiveness as a medicinal herb.
  • Learn about recommended dosages for the treatment of specific conditions.
  • Hear why the national legalization of medical marijuana appears inevitable
  • Explore the many forms that legal cannabis will take -- from oils to ingestibles
 
Because it had been stigmatized and outlawed for much of the past century, research into the therapeutic use of marijuana was restricted, and knowledge of its medical utility was lost. But recently the tide has turned, with new discoveries taking place at a rapid pace.
 
It was research on the effects of marijuana that led to the discovery of the Endocannabinoid System, a biochemical communication system in the body that supports many physiological processes. The detection of receptors in the brain that respond to cannabis – and the subsequent identification of endogenous cannabinoid compounds in our own bodies that bind to these receptors – have breathtaking implications for nearly every area of medical science.
 
Few people are as well versed in the implications of medical marijuana research as author and activist Martin A. Lee. His recent book, Smoke Signals, is regarded by many as the best social history of marijuana yet written.  As director of Project CBD, he provides an essential hub for the sharing of the latest research into the medical utility of cannabidiol (CBD) and other components of the cannabis plant.
 
Martin has invited an all-star line up of doctors and researchers in the field of cannabis science and therapeutics to join him for this exciting 5-part course. The guests include:
 
* Michelle Sexton - Naturopath, founder of PhytaLAB, and director of the Center for the Study of Cannabis and Social Policy
 
* Jahan Marcu, PhD - Director of Research and Development at Green Standard Diagnostics, and Vice-Chair of the Americans for Safe Access Multidisciplinary Scientific Advisory Board
 
* Dr. Dustin Sulak, D.O. - Licensed osteopathic physician and a practitioner and advocate of mind-body medicine, he is the Chief Medical Director of Integr8 Maine and Maine Integrative Health Care
 
* Valerie Corral- Co-founder of the Wo/Men’s Alliance for Medical Marijuana (WAMM), the nation’s oldest continuously operating medical cannabis collective
 
 
You will be part of the discussion, able to ask your questions on camera, just like a Skype call. If you happen to miss a live session, you can view a video recording at any time. These sessions will be filled with provocative information, honest testimonials, and practical advice from thinkers, writers, and doers at the leading edge of this inspiring new field.
 
You will learn
 
* Why the therapeutic impact of the whole cannabis plant is greater than the sum of its parts

Over 5 sessions, Martin and his guests will share with you the most important practical information about medical marijuana, its potential risks and rewards, and how to use it for maximum benefit. Where else would you have access to the world's leading experts sharing the latest medical marijuana research and explaining its exciting implications?  
 
 
SCHEDULE
 
 

Wednesday, July 23 - "The Entourage Effect"
Guest: Michelle Sexton

8:00 p.m. New York • 5:00 p.m. Los Angeles


 
In the first session, Martin will be joined by Michelle Sexton to discuss the medicinal components of the marijuana plant, focusing on cannabinoids (such as THC and CBD), flavonoids, and odiferous terpenes. Each of these components has unique medicinal attributes, but when combined they create a synergistic “entourage effect” so that the therapeutic impact of the whole plant is greater than the sum of its parts.
 
Martin and Michelle will unravel the "cannabis paradox" -- how the same herb can calm the hyper and invigorate the sluggish, dull pain and heighten sensory experience, assuage stress and exacerbate anxiety. Cannabis has “biphasic” properties, triggering opposite effects depending on dosage. This has significant, practical implications in terms of how cannabis can best be utilized as a healing herb.
 
In this session, we will explore:
 
* How cannabis can be used as a healing herb
* What dosage is right for your condition, and why the wrong dosage can undermine the benefits
* Why cannabis is "adaptogenic," with innate qualities that reflect the needs of the person using it
 
Dr. Michelle Sexton is Founder and CEO of Phytalab, a Cannabis analytical laboratory in Washington State. She is a Naturopathic Doctor, herbalist and formerly a midwife in private practice in San Diego.  She began her formal study of phytochemicals with a degree in horticulture, and has specialized in the phytochemical analysis of botanical medicines and their application to neuroinflammation, specifically the role of the endogenous cannabinoid signaling system. She completed a three-year NIH-funded postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Washington in the Departments of Pharmacology and Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, completing a clinical study examining the effects of Cannabis use on some defined immune parameters in patients with Multiple Sclerosis.  She has published original research in peer-reviewed journals and presented her research internationally.
 
Dr. Sexton recently served as an editor/advisor for the American Herbal Pharmacopoeia Cannabis monograph, and was a consultant to the Washington State liquor control Board on the quality control of Cannabis and related products.
