The event, which is being hosted by Drug Science and Medcan Support, aims to bridge the gap between the professional cannabis industry and recreational-focused events, with an opportunity for patients and prescribers to come together and celebrate one another’s journeys.
Open to the general public, it is hoped the conference will help raise awareness of the potential of cannabis-based medicines and reach anyone interested in learning more about the treatment.
Speakers will be made up of medical cannabis patients, prescribers and advocates with individual talks as well as panel discussions.
Existing sponsors include CHILAM, Maple Tree Consultants and the UK Medical Cannabis Clinicians’ Society.
Mags Houston, head of Project Twenty21 at Drug Science, who is organising the event, commented:
“We hope to welcome the general public, prescription and non-prescription patients, healthcare professionals, charities, policy makers, licensed producers and indeed anyone who is interested in hearing what the patients have to say. This will be a unique opportunity to hear patients share their personal journeys."
“The event will be live-streamed and recorded for those unable to attend in person to watch from home. The venue has wheelchair access and there will be lots of stalls hosted by industry organisations wishing to engage with patients in-person on the day.”
