Professor Mike Barnes On The Urgent Need For Medical Education In Cannabis.

with one comment

See ‘Cannabis Advocates Really Need To Stop Accusing Doctors of Being Bribed By Pharmaceutical Companies.’

The urgent need now is physician education. Doctors just don’t know about the endocannabinoid system. They have never been taught it and thus don’t understand it and certainly don’t appreciate the benefit of medicinal cannabis. Only education will slowly change entrenched positions.

The launch of the Academy of Medical Cannabis next week will go some way to help – see the website.  I hope that the Medical Cannabis Clinicians Society, also launched next week, will enable like-minded doctors to ‘spread the word’ and provide patients with a contact to a trained and knowledgeable clinician to prescribe for them.

Professor Mike Barnes is a consultant neurologist and has been a member of the CLEAR Advisory Board since July 2016.
