Stockholm Medical Cannabis Conference

The main reason behind most Doctors’ reluctance to Medical Cannabis – and what needs to change.

Despite the growing acceptance of medical cannabis among the public, most doctors remain reluctant to recommend it to their patients due to a lack of understanding of the endocannabinoid system (ECS) and the role it plays in mediating the effects of cannabis in the body. The ECS is a complex regulatory system that plays a fundamental role in regulating a wide range of physiological processes, including appetite, pain sensation, mood, and immune function. Medical schools and universities should incorporate information about the ECS and medical cannabis into their curricula, and healthcare professionals should receive ongoing education and training to stay up-to-date with the latest research and prescribing guidelines.
