Medical cannabis company leads scientific and formal investigations on medicinal cannabis health effects
TORONTO, Canada (May 11, 2018) – Experts will debate and discuss the use of medical cannabis for the treatment of pain within the context of the 28th International Pain Congress May 10-12 in Medellín, Colombia, hosted by the Colombian Association for the Study of Pain (ACED) and its international partner, the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP).
The important symposium, which gathers health professionals from different specialties, including anesthesiologists, neurologists, experts in palliative care and oncologists, among others, has for the first time in its history dedicated a plenary session to address the issue of medical cannabis and its pharmacology, treatments, use and impact on the treatment of chronic pain and patient care.

High-level events such as this contribute to demystifying and discussing with scientific rigor the beneficial properties that medicinal cannabis offers to human health.”
The event was inaugurated by Luis Fernando Correa, Colombia’s Deputy Minister of Public Health and Services, who has also highlighted issues like regulation to ensure security and informed access to medicinal cannabis for medical and scientific use.
