Over the course of the three-day conference, researchers from all over the globe will come together to deliver a wide range of topics, from psychiatric breakthroughs to exploring the boundaries of human consciousness. Experts in the field of cannabis and cannabinoid medicines will be reporting on cutting edge research, including:
