The convention will be an opportunity for all medical professionals, healthcare workers, traditional healers, caregivers and patients to gain valuable insight into the various dynamics of the plant while allowing orientated businesses and the public to also network with all those who are interested in the future of Cannabis in South Africa

CPD Points will be allocated according to the audit to be carried out at the event by the South African Medical Association.

Cannabis is fast becoming increasingly relevant due to its incredible versatility and popularity across the board, so don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to grow your knowledge of the plant.

We have planned a day of Cannabis education to inform you about the latest scientific findings and about the responsible use of Cannabis. Local and international Cannabis experts will speak about the therapeutic implications of the Endocannabinoid system, the effects of consuming Cannabis and how it can be used as a tool for healing. Topics relating to the legitimacy and practicality of the Cannabis trade, as well as ethical considerations, will also be discussed.

The Clinical Cannabis Convention will build on matters challenging the constitutionality of Cannabis arrests in “The Trial of the Plant”, scheduled for August 2017 at the Pretoria High Court. The Trial and Convention will expand on a judgment made earlier in 2017 by The Cape Town High Court to allow for the home use of Cannabis based on the human right to privacy. We hope to inform drug policy to facilitate and expedite the use of medical Cannabis for terminally ill patients.
