We cordially invite everyone interested in the current knowledge of one of the oldest cultural plants in the world at the 4th Conference of Cannabis and Science. The conference will be hosted by Czech and foreign experts and all lectures will be simultaneously translated into both Czech and English.
The conference is divided into two sections. The morning section will introduce the current work in the area of industrial as well as medical cannabis research in the Czech Republic, while the afternoon lectures will summarize the current situation in the area of implementation of medical cannabis into practice in the Czech Republic as well as on the global level. Issues and problems which experts in this field need to deal with on daily basis will be discussed.
We are also pleased to have renowned neurologist Dr. Ethan Russo among our speakers, who specializes in pediatric neurology and has always been strongly interested in healing plants. This interest has influenced his work and research with the aim to bring cannabis and other botanical substances back to modern medicine. After twenty years of experience in clinical practice, Dr. Russo became the main consultant to British pharmaceutical company GW Pharmaceutical, which produces approved cannabis medicines, in 2003. Currently, he is working as the head of research in the Prague based institute ICCI, which focuses on cannabis and cannabinoid research. Dr. Russo has authored or published seven books on cannabis and other medicinal herbs, more than fifty scientific articles on neurology, pain treatment, cannabis and ethnobotany, and he is now lecturing about these topics all around the world.
