Cannaciencia is the cannabis science Symposium of the Americas, a two day scientific experience that gathers the world most renowned cannabis scientists, academics, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, industry insiders, policy makers, entrepreneurs and cutting age technology. This Symposium is designed to provide state-of-the-art education and training on the world advancements in the medicinal cannabis field.
Scientific research on medicinal cannabis effects led directly to the discovery of a hitherto unknown biochemical communication system in the human body, the Endocannabinoid System, which plays a crucial role in regulating our physiology, mood, and everyday experience. The cannabis plant and its scientific studies in animals and humans have shown potential benefits in different conditions such as: epilepsy, neuroinflammation, multiple sclerosis, psychosis, PTSD, chronic pain, migraines, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, diabetes, different types of cancer, among others.
We are committed to empower continuous scientific research in medicinal cannabis, as well as educating the public in topics related to the endocannabinoid system, cannabis biotechnology, sample preparation, chromatography, mass spectrometry, cannabinomics, terpene profiling, quality control testing for public safety, contamination analysis (pesticides, residual solvents, microorganisms and heavy metals), genetics/genomics, regulations, legalization, scientific methods/standards and medicinal uses of cannabis. We strongly support information sharing that result in the development of new cannabis testing technologies, methods/protocols and standards.
