On Friday the 6th of April, 2018, the University of Barcelona will celebrate the 1st National Seminar of Medicinal Cannabis. The aim of this seminar is to discuss, review, and update the existing knowledge and evidence surrounding the topic of medicinal cannabis. It will discuss cannabis, cannabinoids, the Endocannabinoid system, cannabinoid therapy (and its application for different diseases), and everything in between.

By bringing together experts in this field, attendees (the target audience for this seminar is undergraduate students studying medicine, pharmacology, biology, to name a few) will be provided with a magnitude of information that is based on scientific and clinical evidence. This information is intended to educate and inform professionals, as well as their patients. It will broaden the spectrum of research and bring together all that is known with regard to this field. Not only will the present situation be discussed but it will also cover on the future of medicinal cannabis.

Dr Mariano Garcia de Palau, of Kalapa Clinic, will take part in this seminar as a speaker, in many different sections of the 10 hour long programme. He will provide information on subjects like the use of cannabinoids in the treatment of mental health disorders (such as depression and anxiety), epilepsies, Autism, palliative care, drug addiction and many, many, more subjects.

This is a very exciting venture for the clinic to be a part of and we look forward to being part of many more in the following years.
