Description: This timely and provocative seminar will include an overview of cannabis, the various cannabinoids (endogenous, phyto-cannabinoids and pharmaceutical cannabinoid products) and the newly discovered endogenous cannabinoid system (ECS) that is present in all humans. By understanding the ECS, it becomes more clear as to how and why cannabis is a safe and effective medication for a wide array of illnesses and conditions. The healthcare professional’s role in patient care and education regarding the safe use of cannabis, including ingestion methodologies and interactions with prescription opiates, will be discussed. State and federal laws regarding cannabis as medicine will also be presented.
The event will feature:
Presenter: Mary Lynn Mathre, RN, MSN, CARN, is a medical cannabis consultant and addictions nurse consultant, co-founder of Patients Out of Time, and Past President of the American Cannabis Nurses Association.
Presenter: Wendy Gibson, RN, BSN, a cannabis nurse and ACNA member who is involved in helping shape medical cannabis laws and educating health care professionals in Hawai‘i. She happily serves as the Field Organizer for The Medical Cannabis Coalition of Hawai‘i and The Drug Policy Forum of Hawaii.
Presenter: Stephen P. Pingree, Tax Defense Attorney and Alliance member.

He is well versed in the Hawai‘i MMJ law (HRS 329D) and DOH MMJ Rules and Regulations.
