Accurate cannabis information will be the foundation of a legitimized cannabis community. The problem in recent years has been the fragmentation of cannabis knowledge. To combat disparate cannabis information, Green Flower is providing the community with an opportunity to hear from twenty medical experts from a single online source, all for free.

The virtual Cannabis Health Summit, presented by Green Flower, will be the first medical cannabis event accessible across the country. It is a powerful thing when medical cannabis experts can speak to an audience that is not bound to a single geographical location.

What is even more important is that the Cannabis Health Summit is free to watch from the comfort of your home, which eliminates many of the obstacles that would keep people from participating.

The First Virtual Online Health Summit Just for Cannabis

Federal law says that there is absolutely no medical benefit associated with cannabis therapy. The majority of the American population has been hearing this statement as fact for their entire lives. Yet cannabis has recently become a household conversation, with most major news outlet featuring cannabis news regularly.

Certain cultural movements, like the Great CBD Migration, have put immense public pressure on policymakers to reconsider the medical potentials of cannabis. But at the end of the day, we all keep hearing the same story: “There just is not enough evidence to support medical cannabis.”

Chuck Rosenberg, DEA Chief, Says Cannabis is Never Medical

As frustrating as this may be, it is up to the cannabis community to mend the negative perceptions with factual evidence. For the Cannabis Health Summit, Green Flower has assembled some incredible figures of authority from the realm of medical cannabis.

Many of these individuals have devoted their lives to cannabis science and healing, and see the positive value that Green Flower’s event stands to bring by hosting the Cannabis Health Summit.

Expanding Cannabis Information and Making It Accessible

Many states already have cannabis legislation enacted in some capacity, although many are limited only to the non-psychoactive cannabinoid CBD (cannabidiol). However, science has shown that the medical efficacy of a single cannabinoid will plateau, and that full-spectrum extracts provide a synergistic effect that continues even as dosage is increased.

Learn More About the Effectiveness of Whole Plant Extracts

Unfortunately, this clinical  information is not yet widespread enough to be considered in regions that are generally opposed to cannabis, and therefore it is rarely an issue on the minds of policymakers.

By putting the Cannabis Health Summit online and making it freely available for people all around the country (and world), Green Flower is changing the way that our community interacts with those who may not be fully comfortable with the idea of mainstream cannabis. For cannabis to truly break free from prohibition, cannabis needs to be understood and accepted by the masses, regardless of whether they use it or not.
