May 13, 2019 Newsletter | New Rules Edition
Last week, Business of Cannabis presented Medical Cannabis Week across 7 events, over 5 days in 2 cities. Thousands of people joined in - both in person and through the Medical Cannabis Week live stream. Over the next several weeks, we will provide highlights of the week through this newsletter and through our social channels.
Medical Cannabis Week | Cannabis + Sport
Cannabis + Sport is a program to highlight the research, efficacy and policy implications of cannabis and sport. Hearing first hand from current and former athletes about how, when and why they incorporated cannabis into their recovery regimes, their pain management regimes and their recreation will provide context for the cannabis and sport conversation. As well, the CFLAA has been a vocal voice speaking about the policy and practical implications of cannabis and sport and will present their own views on the subject - especially as it relates the policy implications for leagues and athletes past and present. Finally, a review of where research stands related to recovery, pain management, concussion protocols and other sport-related topics will be reviewed experts.
Medical Cannabis Week | Leading the Way on Medical Cannabis Research
Medical cannabis has been legal in Canada since 2001 and over 350,000 Canadians are medical cannabis patients. Legalization of recreational cannabis in late 2018 has driven down stigma considerably, driving more and more patients to seek therapy through medical cannabis. Canada is fast becoming a leader in medical cannabis research as forward-thinking companies and advocacy groups seek new solutions. This program aims to focus both the corporate role in the medical cannabis research as well as identify ways not-for-profits and advocacy groups are taking charge in research and development.
