Can Cannabis Cure & Prevent Cancer?

Martin Lee is the author of Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana – Medical, Recreational and Scientific and is director of Project CBD, a non-profit educational service dedicated to promoting and publicizing research into the medical utility of cannabidiol (CBD) and other components of the Cannabis plant.

In the seminar, Lee will discuss various molecular mechanisms through which CBD exerts a therapeutic impact. He will review recent findings that led to the discovery of the endogenous cannabinoid system, a hitherto unknown signaling system in the human brain and body that regulates a broad range physiological processes, including glucose metabolism, blood pressure, bone density, intestinal fortitude, pain perception and the formation of new stem cells (neurogenesis) in adult mammals.

Within the scientific community, the discovery of the “endocannanbinoid system” is increasingly recognized as a seminal advancement in our understanding of human biology. CBD research is at the cutting edge of a revolution in medical science. As director of Project CBD, Lee will discuss efforts to reintroduce CBD-rich products into the grassroots supply in states where medical marijuana is legal.

The presentation on CBD’s will be made on Friday, December 7 beginning at 7:30 p.m. at Presto Quality Care (formerly THCF Medical Clinic) at 647 Main St., Riverside CA 92501. The general public is invited to attend and there is no charge for admission.
