Patients Out of Time, UCSF and U of AZ College of Nursing to Host 7th National Cannabis Therapeutics Conference April 26-28 to Tweet Highlights

  (April 14, 2012)

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 14, 2012

Co-sponsored by University of Arizonas College of Nursing and University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Medicine, Patients Out of Time will host its seventh educational conference on the medical benefits of therapeutic cannabis from April 26-28 in Tucson, Arizona. Medical marijuana resource will host an exhibit at the event and tweet event highlights on Twitter (@DOOBONS).

This conference will focus on the emerging science of the endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS). Patients Out of Time has identified the current cannabis research being conducted around the world and invited scientists and health care clinicians involved to present their findings at this accredited educational forum.

Patients Out of Time is committed to ongoing scientific research and education on cannabis therapeutics and its effectiveness for treating serious medical conditions, said John, founder of Doobons. I started to give seriously ill patients approachable access to cannabis resources after I witnessed a terminally ill loved one recover after starting a cannabis regiment.

The first full day of the conference, Friday, April 27, will commence with an overview of the endocannabinoid system in the morning. Distinguished healthcare professionals and patients will take the podium for the rest of the day to address the audience on their clinical work with cannabis therapeutics and its impact on medical conditions like glaucoma, neuropathic pain, stress disorder, chemical addiction and Schizophrenia.

For those who cannot attend the conference in person, the event will be available via Pay-Per-View for $9.99/ day. For more details in regards to Pay-Per-View please visit.

On Saturday, April 28, the conference will focus on cannabinoids and their effectiveness in treating cancer, including breast cancer and glioma cell cancer (which most often occurs in the brain and spine), and skin cancer. Speakers will also discuss their work using cannabis therapeutics to treat post traumatic stress (PTS(d)) and ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease), and how it may prevent Alzheimer's Disease.

Founded by Mary Lynn Mathre, RN and her husband Al Byrne in 1995, Patients Out of Time organized its first of a series of biennial conferences in 2000 to educate health care professionals and the public about the health benefits of therapeutic cannabis. This years gathering will mark the organizations seventh conference.

The need is great, said Mathre. Although leading health care organizations like the American Medical Association (AMA) have expressed a need for more research and education involving the health benefits of therapeutic cannabis centered on evidence-based practice, there has been no formal education on therapeutic cannabis applications since the late 1930s.

Accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education, healthcare professionals can receive continuing education credit for attending the conference. UCSF designates this educational activity for a maximum of 12.75 AMA PRA Category 1 credits.
