Currently, more than 60 U.S. and international health organizations are supporting granting patients immediate legal access to medicinal cannabis under a physician’s supervision. The medicinal value of cannabis is becoming hard to ignore with study after study proving its effectiveness. This class will cover the basics of Cannabis as medicine. We will explain the common cannabinoids and how they interact with our body’s natural endocannabinoid system and receptors, the difference between sativa and indica plants, an introduction into terpenes which make up the smell and taste of cannabis, and also methods of cannabis consumption. The core of this class examines two foundational concepts: (1) medical versus recreational usage, and (2) whole plant versus isolate/distillate usage. In this class, we will examine the following topics: History of cannabis, plant genetics, anatomy and cultivation, endo-cannabinoid system, how cannabis works as medicine, micro-dosing, CBD vs THC, methods of consumption, the cannabis experience, cooking and infusion methods, dispensary operations, escape protocols, dosages and frequencies, storage, and warnings associated with use.
Instructor(s): William Meeks
After an All-American football experience, Bill started his law enforcement career in 1978. Over that 38-year career, he experienced continual physical, psychological and emotional damage. Surgery after surgery, critical incident trauma after trauma. Buried two partners and seven friends. Fourteen more took their own lives. Two shootings and shot at four times. Retired medically after a major back surgery. Under a doctor's supervision developed a 350-500mg morphine habit. Cannabis has saved my life and my family and I am excited to share this knowledge and experience with all seeking alternatives to the pharmaceutical models.
