As the Director of Kyla’s Quest I attended the Vancouver conference this month in order to further my knowledge and connect with people in the medical cannabis world. What I discovered at the conference, was that there was a wealth of information from various parts of the world; from doctors, scientists, specialists and many growers and producers in the industry.
I had the opportunity to speak about Kyla’s journey, Kyla’s Quest, medical cannabis for sick kids and our struggle with getting clean, consistent, high-quality product namely Charlotte’s Web, for many children in Canada.
Of particular interest to me regarding the presenters was our keynote speaker Dr. Lumír Ondrej Hanuš - the scientist who initially identified the endocannabinoid system.
A number of other doctors spoke on various aspects of the use of medical cannabis and Dr. Natasha Ryz was particularly enlightening on the subject of cannabis and the gut.
